Second Darling Oh as a great album and I think I have OK Fred somewhere and that is solid from what I remember. JB beat me to it but yes there are at least two versions of Little Way Different, maybe more can't recall both are great but I do prefer the one JB referred to as rootsier but I think Ernie B's description using the word "skank" was more accurate. Aside from the one's mentioned, Errol Dunkley's tune Rolling Stone is a favorite which incidentally was introduced to me by JJ. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QV-Kvj51Aqw

Darling Ooh + 1 - many good tracks on there! ('I'm not the Man For You' is perfect..)
another not mentioned is 'Love Is A Wonderful Thing' / Port Music 12"

I second that, although I do have a preference for the flipside of this 12": 'Hard Luck Story', another treasured maxi would be 'Runaway Child' 'When I Fall In Love'

"Satisfaction" (a cover of Carl Dawkins') is quite short (1'40) but a great one.

Heard him in Peckahm Rye Park back in the 80's. He smashed it with "Betcha By Golly Wow" and a sprinking of his classics. Pure quality.

I think I read somewhere that he started the African Museum label with Gregory Isaacs but they fell out?

Yes, thats true RG, nice interview with Errol here courtesy of reggae-vibes and Peter I. His response to splitting with Gregory, 'well...' :D

I've always loved black cinderela and its murderous dub.

I'm mixing years.That one was with Winston Reedy, Mikey General, Ken Bob, Thriller U.....I think.
Leroy Smart was with Prince Lincoln and Roy Shirley...but a different year IIRC.

"My Baby is gone" is another great tune by him.

One of my favourite singers... Many killers to his name.
'Can't Come Rush Me No Badness', 'Palaving Spree' (both with Ranking Dread in the discomix) are personal favorites that have not been mentioned yet.
