Rediscover the Reggae Classic "1 Roy Dread Bald Head - An Iconic Reggae Album"

In 1976, the Jamaican music scene was forever changed when former Customs clerk Roy Reid, known as a "toaster," burst onto the scene. His effortless rhymes captivated listeners and earned him a reputation on the Supreme Ruler of Sound in his hometown of Spanish Town. Reid's talent didn't stop there; he continued to impress audiences on various Kingston sets, including the iconic King Tubby's studio.

The Birth of a Reggae Legend

After a successful stint in London, Roy Reid returned to Jamaica to collaborate with different producers, forming a special connection with hit-maker Bunny Lee. The result of this partnership was the exceptional album, "Dread Bald Head," originally released in 1976. This reissue showcases Roy Reid's incredible toasting skills as he takes the mic at Tubby's studio, delivering his unique style over some of Bunny's hardest Aggrovators rhythms. These rhythms were initially crafted by the talented Tommy McCook and his team for artists like Johnny Clarke and Derrick Morgan.
