U-ROY- toasting the last toasting by Eric Doumerc
"Ewart Beckford, who had acquired the nickname "U-Roy" (after one of his cousins failed to pronounce his first name), found a job as a timekeeper in a cement factory and continued to attend sound-system dances. In 1969 he made his first recordings for
Lee Perry, Bunny Lee, and Keith Hudson. He then recorded two sides for Lloyd Daley in October 1969 but it was with the producer Duke Reid that he was to achieve real success."
