about

Emotional Rescue and HMV Record Shop (Japan) end their DISCO REGGAE LOVERS 7” series with reggae legend Sugar Minott and this utterly unique UK soul-boogie rarity, I Remember Mama.

Reggae star, vocalist, producer and sound system operator, Kingston JA born Minott released over 50 albums and hundreds of singles for the likes of Studio One, Wackies, Suffering Heights and his own Black Roots label.

His distinctive soulful voice pioneered the Dancehall style and following his UK hit “Hard Time Pressure” he moved to London in 1980, adopting the rising Lovers Rock sound. On a visit to Wackies’ offices in Soho he met Steve Parr, who had recently opened a studio next door.

Keyboard player for the likes of Desmond Dekker and Geno Washington, Parr moved into composition, mixing, sound engineering and production, before setting up the Sound Design Studio in Dean Street.

Principally a studio, the meeting with Minott hatched the idea to create a label to showcase their capabilities. Produced by Parr, he played all the instruments except the distinctive sax by friend Andy MacDonald.

With Minott’s heartfelt lyrics, this marriage created a one-off, a groundbreaking synthesised 4/4 rhythm track with funk groove and soulful vocals. Released on 7” and 12”, the versions noticeably differ and is the perfect closing to the DISCO REGGAE LOVERS series.
