Black Roots - Sugar Minott's Youth Promotion


Black Roots - Sugar Minott's Youth Promotion
Productions & releases from 1979 to around 1988



Lincoln 'Sugar' Minott set up both his labels, BLACK ROOTS and YOUTH PROMOTION, in 1979 following his success as a recording artist at Studio One, joe Gibbs, Channel One and elsewhere in order to better control his own music and to support talented youths from his local Maxfield Park area of Kingston. After a promising start YP output ceased by 1980 due to the singer's exploding popularity and fame leading to a couple of remarkable years absent from Jamaica, recording in and touring the UK and around the world.  On his return home late in 1982 Sugar picked up where he'd left off with a vengeance, putting much time and energy into the project for the rest of the decade and then in the 1990s and beyond.

Lincoln nurtured many budding talents, notably Captain Sinbad, Triston Palmer, Junior Reid, Little John, Yami Bolo, Trevor Hartley, Colourman & Tenor Saw. Many veterans and established stars also passed through to ketch a likkle a di Sugar vibes. The popular YOUTHMAN PROMOTION SOUND SYSTEM  was central to the operation, lending the youths space and the gear to pracrice and a platform to perform and make their names in public. For an in-depth and very interesting recollection of YP check the Dance Crasher link below...

Slim Smith - Living A Life 7'' 1978

Slim Smith solo record from 1978
Living A Life / Version
Slim sadly died in tragic circumstances after suffering prolonged mental illness. This track is directly about that affliction. ''...someone please help me'' ''How can I go on living this life?''... Incredible song! Rhythm track from around 1978 with earlier vocals.
