Sugar Minott – The Artist

Lincoln Barrington “Sugar” Minott (1956 – 2010) was a Jamaican reggae and dancehall singer, record producer and sound-system operator. Minott developed a talent for writing new songs to fit over existing rhythms (which at the time was common when singers performed live, but rare in the studio), often proving more popular than the original songs, pioneering an approach that would be central to the emerging dancehall style. He became a bigger star in the UK than in Jamaica, his self-produced “Hard Time Pressure” being a major UK reggae hit in 1980, leading Minott to relocate to the UK, where he became a focus for UK reggae.  “Good Thing Going” (a cover of a song originally recorded by Michael Jackson in 1971) was picked up for distribution by RCA and reached Number 4 in the UK Singles Chart in March 1981, leading to an album of the same name. He was a major influence with the Reggae music called lovers rock.

Good Thing Going (We’ve Got A Good Thing Going) – The Song

Good Thing Going (We’ve Got A Good Thing Going), is a song written by The Corporation and originally performed by Michael Jackson. Originally appearing on the B-side of Jackson’s 1972 single “I Wanna Be Where You Are”, it was later included on his second album, Ben. In 1981, Jamaican reggae singer Sugar Minott scored his biggest hit with a cover version of the song, reaching number 4 on the UK Singles Chart.

Two Dancers  – The Shape

This record has been modelled into two romantic dancers. Lovers rock is a style of reggae music noted for its romantic sound and content. While love songs had been an important part of reggae since the late 1960s, the style was given a greater focus and a name in London in the mid-1970s.
