Not sure there are many Reggae or Rock steady fans on RCG, but out of respect I'm posting that the singer John Holt died in London on Sunday aged 69. Holt recorded the original version of "The Tide Is High" later a hit for Blondie and I would recommend to anyone vaguely interested in Jamaican music to check out his classic "Ali Baba". Much respect Sir.

Rest easy, Mr. Holt. Ali Baba - one of the most versioned tunes I know of.
