A former student of Jamaica's famed Alpha Boys' school, Rico Rodriguez served his musical apprenticeship playing trombone in some of the island's most celebrated orchestras and bands. A spell at Count Ossie's camp in Wareika Hills introduced him to the Rasta faith and a new approach to music, which he later introduced to his studio work. In 1961, he emigrated to London, where he became a regular on the growing UK West Indian music scene, cutting numerous sides for every Jamaican music maker of note, including Trojan's in-house producer Danday aka Robert Thompson. Dandy brilliantly paired the trombonist with the Britain leading reggae group, The Rudies, the collaboration spawning an array of singles and the immensely popular album, Blow Your Horn, released by Trojan in late-1969. Unavailable in any format for over 20 years, this highly sought-after boss reggae album is finally back on wax once more, with the discovery of the long lost original Trojan master tapes ensuring it sounds better than ever!
