SUGAR MINOTT - Sufferer's Choice.

Sufferer's Choice ‎(LP, Album, Mono). CDHB 21. Sugar Minott. Sufferer's Choice ‎(CD, Album). Sufferer's Choice ‎(CD, Album, RE). Black Roots. Sufferer's Choice ‎(LP, Album).

fans chose one of each - "A Rough Ole Life (Babylon)" and "Lover's Race" - and propelled them both straight into the charts. In reality, though, virtually the entire album was filled with worthy contenders for hits. Certainly "Rough Ole," with its hints of reggae's past, had hit written all over it, but the title track, a slow, stripped down dub, is equally strong.

Sugar Minott: Sufferer's Choice Play this back-to-back with Minott's 1979 Black Roots and then tell me reggae never changes. The progress is subtle, but I promise you'll hear it plenty clear enough. It begins as usual in the rhythms, which Sly & Robbie take over from lesser lights, but that doesn't explain why Minott, a creamy lovers rocker of no special distinction, not only keeps up but adds fillips of his own, fillips that would have been buried in the 1979 recording even if he'd been capable of them then.

Sufferer's Choice (1983). Album by Sugar Minott.

Release group by Sugar Minott.

Sufferer’s Choice also features the duo’s sharp rhythms; it was overseen by Peter Chemist, who created a fabulous mix of cultural cuts and lover’s concerns. Lovers Rock Inna Dance Hall created a similar split of theme and sound, while Ghetto Youth Dem Rising and Sugar Minott & Youth Promotion also kept the singer’s name on the street. Equally of note was that same year was African Soldier, a concept album concerned with the current state of the continent. Sugar Minott had been diagnosed with heart problems in 2009, and died on July 10, 2010 following his admittance to a Kingston hospital after he had complained of feeling poorly.
