OLDIES SUNDAY: The Chosen Few – In The Rain (1972)


While the Caribbean and parts of the world are experiencing rainy days, today’s Oldies Sunday focuses on a different type of rain. Today’s selection comes from the Reggae Band The Chosen Few with the track, “In The Rain“!

Produced by the late King Sporty and released through Micron Music Limited in 1972, this is a cover of The Dramatics’ 1971 hit, and one of a few Reggae versions done. With many references to actual rain, The Chosen Few are speaking about heartbreak and needing to go out in the rain so no one can see them crying. A song for those who have been experiencing breakups and hurt, The Chosen Few delivered something that comforts the listener. King Sporty’s production on this blends Reggae, Funk, and Soul for something really special. The track was featured on The Chosen Few’s 1976 “Night & Day” a.k.a. “The Chosen Few In Miami” album. We featured it last year in our Youtube video titled, “Rainy Day“, feel free to check it out below.
