In recognition of Women’s History Month, we take the time out to feature Women who have made great contributions to our music culture. While we celebrate the Women all year over here, we recognize some through our Oldies Sunday section. Today’s selection comes from the duo Althea & Donna with the track, “Gone To Negril“.
Produced by Tommy Cowan and released through Reggae Bloodlines in 1977, “Gone To Negril” finds Althea & Donna taking a trip to the Jamaican North Coast destination. An area that is home to various Tourist and local attractions, the duo share their eagerness to be there, and they chronicle their journey from getting ready, to passing through various places before reaching their final destination. While Althea & Donna found great success with “Uptown Top Ranking“, “Gone To Negril” was a minor hit for the duo, and was featured on the “Reggae Bloodlines 2” compilation album. The track was also featured in the 2017 compilation album, “Sounds & Pressure Vol. 7“.
Since the release of “Gone To Negril”, Althea & Donna continued to release a few more singles before making an exit from music. They secured a place in music, and we recognize them for “Women’s History Month”.
Thank YOu Althea & Donna!
