a conversation with the producer who discovered bob marley  - our collaboration lasted until his death in 1981

Green Bay Packers winning last season’s Super Bowl as a wild card. By the way I asked the Jamaican artists I was working with to let me release their records in England.

Abruptly I was in mainstream.

For a few years, I sold records in London’s West Indian communities out of my back Mini Cooper. Nevertheless, It sold six million copies. That said, we had a huge hit. Millie Small’s sweet and suggestive My Boy Lollipop.
