Cornell Campbell

Biography

Perhaps most widely known for the group of “Gorgon rock” records he cut with legendary producer Bunny Lee, reggae singer Cornel Campbell was created in Jamaica in 1948. As a teenager he documented his first materials for Studio room One, cutting some ska edges both being a single artist so when one half of the duo with Alan Martin; from 1964 to 1967 Campbell apparently disappeared in the music business, finally resurfacing as an associate from the short-lived rocksteady tranquility trio the Uniques. Because the 10 years finished, he helmed the Eternals, credit scoring several Studio One-generated strikes including “Queen from the Minstrels” and “Superstars,” however in 1971 he once again went single after teaming with Lee, a pairing which spotlighted Campbell’s distinct falsetto to amazing effect. Despite gaining acclaim for the self-titled LP released on Trojan 2 yrs afterwards, in 1975 he shifted in the fans rock and roll sensibility of latest efforts towards the even more explicitly Rastafarian strategy of information like “Natty Dread within a Greenwich Plantation” and “Organic Reality,” both which surfaced among his biggest strikes to date. Afterwards that calendar year, Campbell and Lee also released “The Gorgon,” a boastful smash which yielded some strike sequels. While 1977’s “The Investigator” heralded an effective return to fans rock, Campbell’s industrial clout waned within the a long time, and in 1980 he and Lee parted methods; following pairings with companies including Winston Riley, Niney the Observer, and Ruler Tubby didn’t re-create the enthusiasm of past periods. In 2005, his profession experienced a renaissance when he became a member of the German techno-dub group Rhythm & Audio on their one “King in my own Empire.” In 2013 he teamed the London-based dub music group Soothsayers for the record Nothing Can End Us, area of the Strut label’s collaborative series Motivation Information.
