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.
