12 Or 13 Years Old Freddie McGregor! Recorded 1968 At Dynamic Sounds Recording Studio. Kingston, Jamaica, West Indies.
I imagined that Studio One was like Motown, with Marvin Gaye, Michael Jackson, The Supremes, all these formidable people, yuh know? It was thus until I record my first song. The ska left the place to the rocksteady. I remember that Bob Marley piled up three cases so that I can reach the microphone, because I was too small. I lived in the house of Mister Dodd, with his family. At first one can hear a very young Freddie McGregor in "After The Laughter", soon followed by tunes he recorded being a youthman. 1970 Studio One sides here. Like the different cut to Rastaman Camp, different from the well-known Bobby Bobylon version.

Freddie McGregor is one of reggae's most durable and soulful singers, with an incredibly steady career that started all the way back in the '60s, when he was just seven years old. Since then, he's spanned nearly every stylistic shift in Jamaican music, from ska and rocksteady to Rastafarian roots reggae to lovers rock (his particular specialty) to dabblings in dancehall, ragga, and dub. Not just a singer, he wrote some of his own material, and grew into an accomplished producer as well. The album was a smash hit in Jamaica, establishing McGregor as a budding star, and revitalizing Coxsone Dodd's production career. Over the next few years, McGregor kept a regular and worldwide touring schedule, but his work in the studio would shift to mentoring his sons Stephen "Di Genius" and Chino, both of them producers and Chino a dancehall vocalist as well. He followed it two years later with a similarly well-received album, the Grammy-nominated Anything for You. In 2005 he issued Comin' in Tough featuring guest appearances from Anthony B, Marcia Griffiths, and Morgan Heritage along with the hit single "Lock It Down.
