OLDIES SUNDAY: Echo Minott – My Mommy (1984)


First off, Happy Mother’s Day to all the Moms, Mamas, Grandmas, Aunties, Stepmoms, and every type of Mother. Wishing you all the best! Today on Oldies Sunday, we make a dedication to all of them. For our selection, we highlight Echo Minott’sMy Mommy“.

Produced by Harry “Big J” Johnson and released in 1984 through Shuttle Records (and in 1985 through Sunset Records), Echo Minott delivered a dedication to his Mother, showing immense gratitude in the process. While all of us have a great relationship with their Mother, Echo went into detail the important roles she has played in his life, and even showing love to his Father in some parts. “My Mommy” was well received by fans, and was featured on his 1985 album, “Rock & Calypso“.

After the release of “My Mommy”, Echo Minott went on to release more music before taking a break from the Music Industry in the early 90s, returning with a few releases in the 2010s, an album in 2021 called “Man A Do Road” with DJ Air Afrique, and a single in 2022 with Laurent Squarta.

OLDIES SUNDAY (Christmas): Uglyman – Christmas Boogie (1985)


For the Christmas holiday season, one thing that many look forward to other than the gifts and food, is the party. Jamaica hosts their share of street dances, office parties, and concerts every December, and they all turn out to be successful. Today, despite Covid 19 restrictions, we’d like to make you rock from wherever you are with the Oldies Sunday selection, Uglyman’sChristmas Boogie“!

Produced by Harry “Big J” Johnson in 1985 for the 10 Roosevelt Ave label on the “Three Blind Mice Riddim“, Uglyman comes through “fi nice up di session” with his commanding, and ability to effortlessly ride the Riddim. This one is for the lovers of 80s Dancehall, those who miss the grinding in the corner of the dance while sipping on a Guinness or Dragon Stout, and for those who looked forward to enjoying themselves to the fullest on Christmas Eve a.k.a. “Grand Market Night“. This song is for you and yours, enjoy it wherever you are safely. Covid is still present, please stay protected. This marks our last entry in Christmas songs for December. We wish you a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and we’ll see you here soon for another Oldies Sunday selection.
