Lacksley Castell – Princess Lady
Negus Roots 1983

His album ‘Morning glory’ is on number 15 in our download
list, 15 of over 3000 posts is a huge score. Today we have his
second and last solo album ‘Princess Lady’. He made one other
record with Hugh Mundell called ‘Jah Fire’, we’ll have that one
soon. Both singers died an untimely death, way too young.
Lacksley Castell died after being sick, age 24. Hugh Mundell was
shot during an assault while sitting in his car with his wife and
Junior Reid in the backseat. Reid survived the assault. Mundell
was only 21 years old. Both singers and close friends died late
1983, Mundell in October and Castell in November, both
singers had a promising career ahead, what a loss ..

Zijn album ‘Morning Glory’ staat op nummer 15 in onze download
lijst. Nummer 15 van meer dan 3000 posts is een geweldige score.
Vandaag hebben we zijn tweede en laatste solo album genaamd
‘Princess Lady’. Hij maakte nog één andere plaat samen met Hugh
Mundell genaamd ‘Jah Fire’, die hebben we voor later deze week gepland.
Beide zangers stierven zeer vroegtijdig, veel en veel te jong. Lacksley
Castell na een ziekbed, 24 jaar oud. Hugh Mundell werd tijdens een
overval dood geschoten terwijl hij in z’n auto zat met zijn vrouw en
Junior Reid op de achterbank. Reid overleefde de overval. Mundell
was slechts 21 jaar oud. Beide zangers en goede vrienden stierven
eind 1983, Mundell in Oktober en Castell in November, beiden
hadden een veel belovende carrière voor de boeg,
een groot verlies ..

    Everyone should watch the video of Pablo and Mundell, such killer footage! Love the few negus roots records I have, including these 3 Lacksley C. records. He had his own style, maybe not for everyone, but number 15 on your chart is pretty high demand I’d say. Impressed (: I also really like don Carlos ‘suffering’ on the NR label
