Freddie McKay - Because Of You mp3 album
Freddie McKay's gritty, soulful vocal style made him one of Jamaica's best singers, and right from the start with the late-1960s release "Love Is a Treasure," recorded for Duke Reid, it was obvious that McKay had an uncommon ability to move his listeners. But his work and legacy (McKay died suddenly under somewhat mysterious circumstances in 1986) have been woefully neglected. Although some of his key tracks are scattered across different reggae compilations, albums of McKay.

It was Prince Buster who launched Freddie McKay’s career in reggae music back in 1967 with the double A sided 7″ single ‘Giving You A Try Girl’ and Go On Girl aka Red Eye Girl. Because the tunes didn’t hit, his next move was to check Leslie Kong at Beverley’s, recording under the name of Freddie McLean. His single Fine Fine Fine shows the pace of rocksteady getting quicker. It’s an untypical Beverley’s production with great riffing horns and also some great harmonies. Three great tunes in a row and no hits!
