With some reggae-pop hits within the mid-’90s, Britain’s Bitty McLean’s smooth and classic vocal approach helped offset the gangster ragga approach then prevalent in reggae and dancehall. Created in 1972, McLean was attracted to traditional reggae young, and by his teenagers he was carrying out before Birmingham’s biggest audio systems. After searching for an audio and engineering course at an area college, McLean started dealing with U.K. origins reggae legends UB40, 1st as an engineer and finally as a maker and occasional vocalist with the music group. Behind the moments he kept focusing on his personal recordings, which paid in 1994 when he positioned three songs within the U.K. graphs, including covers from the Shirelles’ “Focused on the One I REALLY LIKE” and Body fat Domino’s “It Helps to keep Rainin’.” In 2004 he released the interesting On Bond Road KGN. JA., which presented McLean performing his personal melodies and lyrics more than traditional rocksteady backing paths documented by Tommy McCook at Duke Reid’s famous Treasure Isle studio room some 30 years previously.
