Although contemporary audiences may know his gorgeous trill from collaborations with Massive Attack in the 1990s, Horace Andy was a fixture on Jamaica's original reggae scene in the late '60s, recording with all the classic dub producers. His distinctively supple singing style influenced a generation of vocalists, even outside the scope of reggae. Many of his earliest recordings for Studio One, Trojan, and Wackies are now rarities, but thankfully much of his work--including his signature tune, "Skylarking," from 1972--has been anthologized many times over. As of the 2000s, Andy, relocated to the U.S., was still releasing original material.
