Carlton Livingston is one of the great, sort of lost singers of the early eighties dancehall scene. He's just released a new album, Bridge of Life and it's a killer. Under the production of Grant Phabao, Carlton's smooth style and voice made this album full of both dancehall mashers and lovers tunes. The sound is a cross between Groundation and more traditional 70's reggae from the island. Here's a selection of some of his earlier hits mixed with a few tracks from this new album.

"Paris DJs are hosting this wicked collection of one of reggae’s best ever voices – Carlton Livingston. Download this if only for the killer cuts 100 Weight Of Collie Weed and Trodding Through The Jungle. The tracks cover almost 30 years in the game, finishing with some new cuts from his 2010 album Bridge Of Life. Wickedness increased."
