Some of the releases were "Lead us Father", Mystery of Nature", "Party Time" and "Righteous Kingdom". The group sprang up from the gathering at Delacree Rd. and Delamar Ave. corner, properly known as Tony Martin corner where many aspiring artists would mass. In 1974 Sugar teamed up with ace producer Coxsone Dodd "Studio One".
Minott's follow-up album, 1979's Showcase, was equally revolutionary and included not just dub versions, but featured the hip new syndrums that would soon rule the dancehalls. Both albums also doubled as hits collections, and included such smashes as "Wrong Doers," "Oh Mr. DC," "House Is Not a Home," and such Niney Holness-produced chart-busters as "No Vacancy," "Give Thanks and Praise," and "Babylon . Sugar Minott had been diagnosed with heart problems in 2009, and died on July 10, 2010 following his admittance to a Kingston hospital after he had complained of feeling poorly. He was 54 years old. ~ Jo-Ann Greene.
After working as a selector on the Sound of Silence Keystone sound system, and then his own Gathering of Youth system, he began his singing career as part of The African Brothers in 1969, along with Tony Tuff and Derrick Howard. The group released several singles in the first half of the 1970s on labels such as Micron and their own Ital label, and were an early example of the Rastafari movement’s influence on the Jamaican music scene, taking a clear lead from The Abyssinians . It was followed in 1979 with a second album, Showcase, which included his singles that had been omitted from the first album. The Bittersweet album followed, and then the third album of 1979, Ghetto-ology, which saw a return to roots reggae.
