April 9, 2010: Johnny Clarke part 3


Johnny Clarke got his start in 1971 when he won a talent show and was introduced to producer Clancy Eccles. He recorded a tune with Eccles, before moving on to Rupie Edwards to record the classic tune Everyday Wondering. He then moved on to Glen Brown before settling in for a long run with producer Bunny Lee.

For part three of this Johnny Clarke series, we focus on the remakes that Johnny Clarke did, primarily for Bunny Lee. Johnny was often the go-to-guy when Striker needed someone to voice a tune. In the beginning we ran a number of Wailers related remakes as well as relicks on tunes from Burning Spear, Alton Ellis, John Holt, Slim Smith and a number of other classic riddims.
