OLDIES SUNDAY: Cornel Campbell – You’re No Good (1973)

June may be a Wedding month for many couples, but sometimes many relationships don’t get to make it to the Altar. For today’s Oldies Sunday selection, we go back in time to check out Cornel Campbell’s track, “You’re No Good“.

Produced by Bunny “Striker” Lee for his Lee’s Label and released in 1973, Cornel Campbell uses his signature falsetto to deliver a song that speaks about heartbreak, abandonment, and lost love. Cornel calls out the person who hurt him, and let him to suffer, and he looks back at the times he was warned that she was not. good person. The hurt can be felt by the listener, people instantly connected with the song, and related to the lyrics. The song was a great addition to Campbell’s catalogue, as he recorded many hits with Bunny Lee in the 1970s. He went on to record many singles and released albums well into 2021 in the form of the reissue of his 1978 album, “Sweet Baby“. Congrats to those who got a chance to take the big step this Wedding season, much love to those who have gone through splits.

OLDIES SUNDAY: Horace Andy – Our Jamaican National Heroes (1978)

As we remember Jamaica’s National Heroes on October 17 (the day is celebrated every 3rd Monday in October), we look back at Reggae Artist Horace Andy’sOur Jamaican National Heroes” track. This single was produced by Bunny Lee for the Striker Lee Label in 1978 and features Andy paying tribute to our National Heroes. Here he name drops George William Gordon, Paul Bogle, Marcus Garvey, Alexander Bustamante and Norman Manley as he learned about them during his younger days in School. For those paying attention, you may have noticed the omission of Heroine Nanny of the Maroons as she wasn’t conferred the Order of National Hero until March 1982, and Sam Sharpe the same date. In between the name drops, Horace would speak on the roles each Hero played with mention that George William Gordon and Marcus Garvey were betrayed, Bustamante was the only living National Hero at the time, and Marcus Garvey is the greatest Hero of them all.
