ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
SILVER KAMEL is pleased to announce the release of several previously unreleased trax from two of reggaes enigmatic performers:

Ranking Dread and Massive Dread

While very little is known of these 2 artists it is known that whenever and wherever they performed it was to ecstatic crowds.

2 Rudebwoys growing up in the tough ghetto of Trenchtown, Kingston, Jamaica, both growing up in the same area and both knowing Bob Marley and probably knew most of the other stars of reggae when reggae was in it's infancy back in the '60s.
Sketchy facts, stories of violence and political misunderstanding, and very few recordings from either artist available to the public. Yet if you talk to people who knew and have seen them perform they will tell you they were great and were popular with the dancehall crowd.
Ranking Dread got himself into more than a few brushes with the authorities and ended up on the run, eventually being extradited from Canada and imprisoned in Jamaica where he was killed.
Massive Dread, Roslyn Ellis and "Organs" got together and organized and setup a not for profit school called "The Trenchtown Reading Centre" to address the needs of the community - it provided basic schooling and vocational programs, a youth club, and a library. The centre opened December 1993 and has thrived over the years and expanded but sadly MD has not seen the success of his work as he was also killed, probably due to political violence which was rampant in Jamaica. www.trenchtownreadingcentre.com

The music and lyrics herein give some insight into the lives of these two men, these two talented artists who left so little yet so much behind....
