Between 1967 and 1968 he recorded several singles for Joe Gibbs including "Please Stop Your Lying" (1967) and "Love Brother" (1968), before switching to Coxsone Dodd in 1969.[2] In the early 1970s, together with Gregory Isaacs he formed the African Museum record label, although Isaacs soon took sole control of the label, while Dunkley formed a new label, Silver Ring. In 1972 he teamed up with producer Jimmy Radway for two of his most popular singles, "Keep The Pressure On" and "Black Cinderella".

The same year saw the release of Dunkley's Sonia Pottinger produced debut album, Presenting Errol Dunkley, which included the track "A Little Way Different". Dunkley continued to record throughout the 1970s and towards the end of the decade his popularity in the UK grew, resulting in a breakthrough UK Singles Chart hit in 1979 with "OK Fred", a cover version of a John Holt-penned song, that reached number 11[3]. He also avoided the one-hit wonder tag, by securing a minor chart placing with the 1980 follow-up release "Sit Down And Cry". Dunkley's biggest hit, "OK Fred", was re-recorded in 1996 with Queen Sister *N*. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Errol_Dunkley Read more on Last.fm.
