Looking back on John Holt

The news this morning of John Holt’s passing was very sad indeed. As one of the godfathers of lovers rock and rocksteady, but also as a pionneer of reggae, there is no doubt that today we lost one of the greats.
So to honour his talent and legacy, here is a top ten of some of his best hits :

  • Police in Helicopter

  • Ali Baba

  • Strange Things

  • Left with a Broken Heart (w/ The Paragons)

  • Everybody Needs Love

  • Wild Fire (w/ Dennis Brown)

  • Mercy Mercy (w/ The Paragons)

  • Youth Pon De Corner

  • Hooligan (w/ The Paragons)

  • Love and Understanding
