Wiser than before...




Not much info about Black Slate other than the fact that it's an English band formed in 1974 and originally composed of Dennis Brown, Delroy Wilson and Ken Boothe, among others.


Group that will remain mainly in the musical history of the 80s for the very high-caliber single "Amigo" released in 1980.

Clips :


1977 ... a very promising start. The style, like the sound, are trendy and that can only bode well for the future



1978 ... admittedly, this group will not remain as the best known and the most talented in its category, but the least we can say is that they do not have to be ashamed of what they propose



1979 ... the group will have taken several years to gain strength but he is on the right track, that's clear. The consecration will not happen during this decade of 70 but it will not be long ...



1980 ... and the consecration, here it is ! The group simply signs here the biggest success of all its discography and at the same time one of the most successful reggae titles of the decade. HU-GE !



1980 ... a beautiful and above all BIG year 1980 which saw them achieve their two biggest successes. This one will be a step below compared to the previous one but it does not matter, the group will have managed to enter the musical legend of the 80s in just 1 year, remarkable fact ...



1981 ... even if the level of success will drop somewhat compared to the previous year, the group continues to offer quality, that's clear. Hope it lasts ...



1981 ... an indisputable melodic quality which will have really made of this group one of the very best of this particular field which is reggae. What more !



1984 ... difficult to exist in a decade where everything is electronic and drum machines. But they do not dismantle and continue the adventure for whatever reason. We can only salute the performance !



1984 ... a year 1984 which saw the adventure draw to an end. But the main thing is that the group will have left in its wake 2 very large caliber titles and just for that, the adventure was well worth the experience !
