Leroy Sibbles – Crowning Celebration 8/31/24 feat Etana, Marcia Griffiths, Singing Melody, Duane Stephenson in Kingston Jamaica

Born in the heart of Trench Town, Leroy rose to prominence as one third of The Heptones – a formidable Jamaican group formed in 1965. Yet it was in the year 1964 that Leroy Sibbles, the performer, was birthed when he started recording professionally.

Whilst much heralded as a vocalist his contribution as an arranger and session bassist is of distinction. It is this duality that Leroy celebrates with The Crowning.

Arguably the best known of Sibbles’ compositions is the instrumental Full Up, popularised internationally by Musical Youth’s recording of Pass the Dutchie, an adaptation of the Mighty Diamonds’ Pass the Kutchie. Also well-known is the ubiquitous Real Rock instrumental, later voiced by Willi Williams as Armagideon Time and internationalised by the Clash.  There is a diverse array of vocalists on Sibbles created basslines spanning six decades.

Morgan Heritage’s Down By The River released in 2003 is on the What Kinda World arrangement originally created by Sibbles in 1968 for The Cables. Dennis Brown’s No Man is An Island, The Abyssinian’s Satta Massagana and the chart-topping Heptones’ standard Book of Rules are proof of the worthiness of Sibbles coronation as king of reggae basslines.
