Al Campbell, Tony Roots and Christine Miller in London

June 3, 2011

Al Campbell is rarely mentioned by the casual follower of reggae singers. But if you add up the sheer number of killer tunes he has recorded he belongs in the pantheon for sure. The smooth-voiced maestro performed for nearly 2 hours on Bank Holiday Sunday at the Hootananny, giving a 5 song encore yet leaving his fans shouting for more hits.

Strolling on stage in an oatmeal suit and straw hat, Mr Campbell soon broke a sweat doling out classics in lovers, roots and rub-a-dub style. Assisted by the legendary Ruff Cutt band he crooned his way through smashes like Gee Baby and Late Night Blues, along with heavyweight collectors’ pieces such as Jammin’ and You’re Mine, as well as new material from his forthcoming Peckings album ‘Man From Studio 1’.
