Biografia

The Gaylads are a Jamaican vocal group. They were one of the top rocksteady vocal groups active in Jamaica between 1963 and 1973. The group, formed in Kingston, originally consisted of singers Harris “B.B.” Seaton, Winston Delano Stewart and Maurice Roberts; Seaton and Stewart had previously been successful as the duo Winston & Bibby.[1] There would be several line-up changes throughout The Gaylads’ ten year history, with Maurice Roberts remaining the only constant member.

Besides recording several hit records, The Gaylads also backed many influential musicians (including Ken Boothe) on recordings.

Roberts, the lone remaining original member, selected brothers Randell and Hopeton Thaxter to carry on the Gaylads name; the new lineup never matched the success of its predecessor, however, and after releasing the album, Love and Understanding, as the Gayladds, Roberts dropped any reference to the moniker and rechristened the trio the Psalms, landing as backing vocalists for Bunny Wailer. The founding duo of Seaton and Stewart reformed for the first time in over two decades for an appearance at the 1991 Studio One concert, and two years later Roberts joined them for a performance at the Rocksteady Reunion in Kingston. Seaton, who began his solo career in 1973 with the album Thin Line Between Love and Hate and enjoyed success throughout the years to follow—subsequently relocated to London to helm his revived Soul Beat imprint.

Some of their hits included one of the first singles encouraging repatriation - “Africa (We Want To Go),” “Joy In The Morning”; “Red Rose,” (for Coxsone Dodd at Studio One), “It’s Hard To Confess,” “Over the Rainbow’s End”(for Sonia Pottinger) and “My Jamaican Girl” (for Leslie Kong / Beverley’s).
