2015 repress. John Holt was one of the finest and most versatile voices to come out of Jamaica, whether fronting The Paragons or as a solo artist. Born in Kingston, Holt was a child prodigy who began his career as a regular voice on the talent contests run by Vera Johns across Jamaica. He cut his first single, I Cried a Tear/Forever I'll Stay, for Leslie Kong's Beverley's label in 1963, and sang many duets with various singers of the day, including "Rum Bumper" with Alton Ellis. The period from 1965 to 1970 was John Holt's paragon era, during which he also ran solo with such hits as "Fancy Make Up," "A Love I Can Feel," and "Let's Build Our Dreams."
