A Yah Me Deh
Clive Hylton, also known as Color Red, was born in 1956, in Jamaica. When he was 10 years old Colour Red moved to Kingston with his family. He embarked on his recording career in sessions with Lee Perry at the producer’s Black Ark studio, and his debut was released as a dub plate special for the UK-based Coxsone International Sound System owned by Lloyd Coxsone. The dancehall favourite, ‘From Creation’, was inaccurately credited to Junior Byles although by the 90s Colour Red was acknowledged as the vocalist of the tune. In 1976 the song was remixed in dub with an infectious female chorus. The remix was included on Super Ape as the aptly titled ‘Underground’. Here Clive Hylton covers a true Barrington Levy classic over the same riddim, which also was the riddim for Freddie Mckay’s Guide Us Jah Jah.
