Consumer Guide Album. Black Uhuru: Red Believe me, Michael Rose isn't trying to fill anybody's shoes-he'd probably rather not wear shoes. The ululation and ragged sense of line are pure country, like Jamaican field hollers; lots of times the songs don't even rhyme. But "Youth of Eglington" lets you know right off that this is a country boy who reads the papers, and with Rose pouring forth and Sly and Robbie rolling that rockers riddim, you don't really care that it never gets any better.

By 1979 the 'classic' line up of Black Uhuru was ready to conquer the world. Derek "Duckie" Simpson and Michael Rose, who had been together with Errol Nelson since 1977 now formed a partnership with American social worker, Sandra "Puma" Jones. It was her sweet vocal addition to the heady mix that was to prove the turning point. In the early '80s if you wanted both critical and popular approval in the the dancehalls, there was only one rhythm team you needed to call to get your skank on: Sly and Robbie.
