Reggae singer and producer Leroy Smart, the self-proclaimed Don, carries much respect in the Jamaican musical community. He came through the Alpha Boys School in Kingston that produced the cream of Jamaican artistic talent -- such legends as Don Drummond, Tommy McCook, and Johnny Dizzy Moore, to name but a few. Leroy Smart's talent lay in his vocal attacking style that gives his lyrics and tune that extra meaning. His best work came in the heady mid '70s, working with "The Hitmaker from Jamaica" Mr. Bunny Striker Lee. Bunny put Leroy Smart on some of his best rhythms, starting in 1973 with "God Helps the Man" and "Wreck Up My Life." Other killer hits were to follow such as "Mr. Smart," "Pride and Ambition," "Bad Minded People" and "Mr. Richman." All tracks tell it like it is. Kingston Sounds has compiled all these cuts together, every song a story in itself, told only as Leroy Smart could.
