Don Carlos Day To Day Living on LP
Don Carlos started his singing career back in 1973 as one of the original members of the roots vocal group Black Uhuru. A year after the trio's groundbreaking debut, Carlos surprisingly decided to part company in pursuit of a solo career. Having needed at least three years to get the grips of being a soloist, plus developing a knack for song writing and grooming that distinctive, vocal styling it wasn't until May 1981 that he really took the fraternity by storm, courtesy of a heavy, roots and culture flavored showcase album titled Suffering for Negus Roots.
Since then he's worked alongside Goldie, his side kick, co-writer and back up vocalist, building and consolidating a staunch following through touring, plus twelve solo albums, most notably the peak era releases Harvest Time, Day to Day Living, and Them Never Know a Natty Dread - all three issued in 1982. Day To Day Living was recorded and mixed at Channel One by producer Henry 'Junjo' Lawes and Scientist respectively with backing from the Roots Radics. The album produced three Top 10 melodic roots reggae hits with "Hot And Goat," "Dice Cup" and "I'm Not Crazy."
