Rothadam- Still a Rebel

Rothadam’s Rebel was one of the first Reggae 45s I found when I moved to Canada, inside a barrel in the basement of Monica’s Records on Eglinton Ave West.

At the time there was no information about it online and I spent years trying to find out more about this remarkable singer with the unusual name.

After placing an add in a local Caribbean newspaper I tracked down Rothadam and played him some of his music that he hadn’t heard in 40 years.
Licensed reissue of “I Was Born To Be A Rebel” out in 2017.
Just listen to that voice!
