Glen Ricks - Ghetto Boy (LP)
Glen Ricks is one of a kind, a powerful singer and a songwriter with a unique soul tone who is known as the Al Green of Jamaica.
Born in Jamaica, Glen emigrated to Canada in 1967 when he was 14 years old. Arriving in Toronto in 1969, he entered a talent contest where he met the first place winners, a group of guys from Jamaica called "The Fabulous Flames". Glen joined the group, which also featured Lloyd Lovindeer and Kirk Salmon.
Soon after they went to Jamaica and did their first recording "Holly Holy", a cover of the Neil Diamond hit. The recording featuring Glen's voice was done with legendary producer Clancy Eccles. The song became a big hit, sparking the creation of their first album that spring, a second single called "Growing Up" which also became a hit.
Now he joined forces with legendary producer Linval Thompson and renowned producer and musician Roberto Sánchez. Together they recorded the album you are holding in your hands right now for one of the finest international ska and rocksteady labels; Liquidator Music. Sit, listen and enjoy this musical adventure.
