Coozie Mellors

 Coozie Mellors - Wackies

Horace Andy's vocal style as by now probably inspired more reggae singers than anyone else. The amazing thing about it, is that as distinctive as it is. Nearly all the singers have added a little bit to the style. Likewise with Coozie Mellors. It might only be a word or two, but after a while you know you are not listening to Horace Andy. A big bonus for Coozie here, are some truly great Wackies rhythms. Horace sounded great on them in the early eighties, but these late eighties sound a lot better to me.
