Junior Reid seems ready to reclaim his roots. Of course prior to his breakthrough as a member of Black Uhuru (after Michael Rose departed), Reid was a stalwart recording artist for none other than Prince Jammy (later to be musicially crowned King Jammy$). Junior Reid's early roots reggae hits included "Boom Shock A Lock," "Poor Man Transportation," Concrete Castle King, and "Jail House," among many others.
Reid has had his own production company (JR Records) for several years. He's released dancehall and cross-over tracks and produced for other artists, including his two sons Andrew & Wada Blood.
JR's latest track is a solid return to his roots. "Out Deh" features live band instrumentation and thought-provoking lyrics. The track comes close to the intensity of his most known international hit, "One Blood."
