Minott's follow-up album, 1979's Showcase, was equally revolutionary and included not just dub versions, but featured the hip new syndrums that would soon rule the dancehalls. Both albums also doubled as hits collections, and included such smashes as "Wrong Doers," "Oh Mr. DC," "House Is Not a Home," and such Niney Holness-produced chart-busters as "No Vacancy," "Give Thanks and Praise," and "Babylon. Jamaica had undergone a dancehall revolution in his absence and Minott was keen to participate, releasing the Dance Hall Showcase album that same year. The singer was back in top form in 1984, releasing a trio of albums and a string of hit singles. Herbman Hustling was first off the mark and featured a sublime blend of dancehall styles and roots sensibilities, with a touch of lovers rock thrown in for good measure.

Lincoln Barrington "Sugar" Minott (25 May 1956 – 10 July 2010) was a Jamaican reggae singer, producer and sound-system operator. After working as a selector on the Sound of Silence Keystone sound system, and then his own Gathering of Youth system, he began his singing career as part of The African Brothers in 1969, along with Tony Tuff and Derrick Howard
Few artists have had as pervasive an influence on modern-day reggae as the versatile Sugar Minott. Beginning his illustrious career voicing sides for the legendary producer Coxsone Dodd, Minott soon took on various roles beyond the mic, becoming both an in-demand producer and sound system operator. But his greatest contributions lay in his early-‘80s material, where his emotive mix of lovers rock-style vocals and sing-jay chatting set the stage for the emergence of ragga dancehall. DANCEHALL SHOWCASE VOL. 2 is a reissue of a rare 1983 album that originally surfaced on Minott’s own Black Roots.

In 1974 Sugar Minott teamed up with producer Coxsone Dodd and was the singer responsible for reviving Studio One to its status following the loss of singers like John Holt, Ken Boothe, Alton Ellis to other studios of the day. The first hit for Studio One by Sugar was Vanity and songs like House is not a Home, Hang on Natty and Mr. . which led to his first solo album entitled Live Loving. It was the first of the Studio One ‘do-over’ albums, and generally recognised to be the first ‘dancehall’ album. The follow up was the Showcase album which collects some early Studio One hits in showcase (extended) style. He continued to work with Studio One until 1979 when he left and created his own label Black Roots which led to the foundation of Youth Promotion. Along with Barry Brown he toured the dance halls and thus emerged the current trend that is seen today in Jamaica.
