OLDIES SUNDAY: Carol Gonzalez – Spoiled By Your Love (1986/1991)


It’s Wedding SZN! For the month of June, Oldies Sunday will feature some love songs that can be a great addition to your Wedding Playlists, and could be the official song to dance to. Today we go back a few decades with Carol Gonzalez and her single, “Spoiled By Your Love“! With two versions of this track produced by Donovan Germain, one version was released through the Rub-A-Dub label in 1986, while the 2nd version was released through Penthouse Records in 1991. The Rub-A-Dub version catered to Reggae listeners with a slow tempo and the legendary Dean Fraser playing the Saxophone while the Penthouse release was more of a Dancehall version with a faster tempo. The track was a cover of US Recording Artist Anita Ward’s single that was featured on her 1979 debut album, “Songs Of Love“. On the song, Carol spoke on a lover she could not get over, and no matter who she moved on with, he was just “the real thing“. Both versions of the song had Carol’s name buzzing locally and overseas, and received favourable airplay.

While Carol Gonzalez released more music over the years, and even scored a couple hits, she took a break to focus on her Law career (Attorney-at Law and a Judge). She came back to music for a short period in 2006 and launched her debut album a year later, but today she still practices Law.

PRESS RELEASE: @StuartWilson100 Shines With “Feel For You”


Reggae Recording Artiste and Musician Stuart Wilson shines with his latest single “Feel for You”. Produced by Clive Hunt and featuring Dean Fraser on sax, the single tells the tale about finding true love. “It’s about finding love, the serenity of love, and how things can happen out of nowhere,” Wilson stated. “The feedback has been tremendous. As the single has been receiving high rotation on   radio stations locally and internationally and the response  is  positive. I’m bringing imagination to the music. I love reggae and I’m really a guest in the house of reggae,”. Wilson describes his style of music as a blend of classical rock, jazz, blues and reggae. “My preference is what I call ‘Root Music’. That’s basically a suit of clothes for a song,” he said.

Born in the Cayman Islands to a Jamaican father and a Caymanian mother, Wilson learnt to play instruments at an early age. He played the drums during his high school years as well as the acoustic Guitar. “I have always been influenced by musicians who have impacted music globally. Musicians who have a message in their music,” he said. “Residing between Jamaica and the Cayman Islands. The Journey has had its share of challenges I measure my success by how many people’s lives can be touched by a song they enjoy. Long after I’m gone, I still want to be able to touch people physically through my work. The next step is to start more real world marketing and exposure at events. Will also be taking bookings to increase awareness. I have an idea for a song with Sizzla. The particular song I have in mind will require his unique brand of brilliance to get the temperature right on the record. Hoping to reach out to his camp in short order.”

Wilson holds a bachelor’s degree in mass media communication, journalism and broadcast from the St Thomas University in Florida. He has opened shows for major acts, including Damian Marley, Beres Hammond, Michael Bolton, Roberta Flack, Third World, Tanya Stephens, and Morgan Heritage. He has worked with producers including Grammy-winning Jason Gilbert (known for his work on rapper Eminem’s Recovery album), Sly Dunbar and Rory Baker. Prior to his latest single, he released “Real Come Back Story” on his Love Culture Entertainment label.
