Pat Kelly


It's sometimes easy to overlook Pat Kelly in the whole rock steady scene, as he tends to fall in the shadows of Alton Ellis, Slim Smith, and the like. However, his contribution to the development of reggae and the quality of his material rank up there with any of his better-known peers.

It's sometimes easy to overlook Pat Kelly in the whole rock steady scene, as he tends to fall in the shadows of Alton Ellis, Slim Smith, and the like. However, his contribution to the development of reggae and the quality of his material rank up there with any of his better-known peers. The songs on this well-stocked collection range from his late '60s rock steady work with the Techniques (in which he replaced Slim Smith as lead singer) -- such as the classic remakes of Curtis Mayfield's "Minstrel and Queen" (AKA "Queen Majesty") and "You'll Want Me Back" (AKA "You Don't Care") -- to his '70s solo cuts, like "Talk About Love." Listening to this album, you may be amazed at the number of tunes you know: "It's You I Love," "It's a Good Day," "I'm So Proud" (another Mayfield cover), and more will likely strike a familiar chord with moderately seasoned reggae fans. Tracks you may not recognize but that are well worth the "ear time" include the tender "I've Been Trying," "Um Um Um Um Um Um," "Night and Day," "Dark End of the Street," "I'm in the Mood," and "Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye." If you're interested at all in the pioneering days of reggae, you owe it to yourself to know Pat Kelly.
