Jamaica's chart topping duo Dave & Ansell Collins met when recording for Lee Perry in the late 60s. In 1971 they joined forces to record the International chart sensation 'Double Barrel', which became a global phenomenon reaching No.1 in the UK (only the second reggae single to do so), Jamaica and became the first reggae single to reach the Top 30 of the US Billboard Hot 100 peaking at number 22. Their follow-up release, the similarly styled 'Monkey Spanner' enjoyed the same international success.
Dave Barker is one of the most accomplished, soulful singers Jamaica has ever produced. After making his recording debut in 1968, partnering Glen Brown on a series of JA hits, Dave launched his solo career under the auspices of the Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry. Their subsequent collaborations spawned a number of best-selling singles; 'Shocks Of Mighty', 'Just My Imagination' and culminating in the singer’s debut LP, 'Prisoner Of Love'. Soon after, Dave was riding high on the British charts with Ansell, leading to a permanent relocation to London.
Ansell Collins is one of the most prolific and finest musicians Jamaica has ever produced, having worked with who's who of reggae music. In the 1970's he was in Channel One's studio band The Revolutionaires, as well as The Upsetters, the Impact All-stars and Sugar Minott's Black Roots Players. He has appeared on 10s of 1000s of songs including recording for King Tubby, Bunny Lee, Black Uhuru, Alton Ellis, Dennis Brown, Derrick Harriott, Jimmy Cliff, John Holt, Mikey Dread, Pat Kelly, Rupie Edwards, Rico Rodriguez, Sly & Robbie, Tommy McCook, Heptones, Culture, Gregory Isaacs, I Roy, Marcia Griffiths, Mighty Diamonds, Bob Andy, Ken Boothe and Jackie Mittoo.Get Tickets
