About "Barnabas Collins"...
1979-1983 The rise of the Dancehall
[Reggae - The Rough Guide - The Definitive Guide To Jamaican Music, From Ska Through Roots To Ragga] (Steve Barrow and Peter Dalton)
What was different now was that the rhythms were becoming all-important, with virtually all the producers rushing to cut their own versions of the most popular ones. By 1983, indeed, it was unusual for anyone to have a Jamaican hit employing a completely original rhythm track. Those who didn't experience the excitement of the dancehalls might view the arrival of twenty new versions of, say, "Real Rock" as indicating a lack of creativity, and some people have for this reason dismissed the dancehall phase of reggae as more shoddy than the music that had preceded it. But the real imagination came in making the familiar sound fresh, with each producer struggling to make his own cut the freshest of all.
The Lone Ranger's "Barnabas Collins" was of crucial importance, for besides giving younger deejays a new tone of delivery and several fresh catchphrases, it also revitalized the rhythm for Slim Smith's late 1960s hit, "My Conversation". Soon almost every other producer on the island had his own cut on the street. Deejay Jah Thomas stepped in with his self-produced celebration of "Cricket Lovely Cricket" ("Midnight Rock"), while Barrington Levy praised the qualities of "Collie Weed" ("Roots From The Yard") to score his best-selling single to date, and Al Campbell revisited the original lyric for London's Soferno B. Yet "Barbanas Collins" only reflected what was already happening in the dancehalls. There a popular rhythm track would be played repeatedly, with a succession of performers lining up to take their turn in performing over the 'dubplate', each attempting to make it his - or sometimes her - own.

Anthony Waldron - Lone Ranger. He started out with a group know as High-Fenders with members, Chester Synmoie leader of the group, Anthony Waldron lead singer & Ransford Rogers. In 1975 Lone Ranger first recorded two songs "Get Humble" & "Youth In The Ghetto" for Thrill Seekers Records which were never released (produced by Chester Synmoie, recorded at Treasure Isle). Then after that Chester took him to Tony in 1977 who in turn took him to Channel One & Coxsone. Then in 1978 he came back to Thrill Seekers Records and recorded his biggest hit "Barnabas Collins" for producer Leon Synmoie, which was also written by Leon Synmoie & Lone Ranger. This song went to number 1 in Jamaica, America & Europe. "Barnabas Collins" was released by G-G Records & Island Records and soon after he released his second album "Barnabas In Collins Wood". You will enjoy listening to this album from a veteran at his best.
