Joe White

Jamaican singer Joe White has had an unsung career, issuing several brilliant singles through the ska, rocksteady, and early reggae eras, including 1967's "Rudies All Around," 1968's "Every Night" (produced by Sonia Pottinger), and an amazing version of "My Guiding Star," produced by Charles Ross at Studio One. Somehow, though, White never garnered the mass attention he deserved. Early on he was a member of vocal group the Leaders with Ken Boothe, Roy Shirley, and Chuck Josephs, and several singles by the quartet were issued on Federal, but none generated much action.
