Does anyone know whether LEROY SMART still performs?

If so, I'd love to see him at SNWMF someday.....

Not only does he still perform, but when he does......it's pandemonium





Next to Al Campbell, he is my top request to all Cali promotors.

Sound System or stage show, The Original Don is ready.

Al Campbell was in New York last weekend on CVP's show on WKCR. I believe Mr Smart was in Southern cali not too long ago.

Ihave seen both Leroy and Al Campbell perform in S. Cali a couple of decades ago. Would love to see both of them again. Especially Al Campbell, who is a really nice guy as well as being a great performer and producer.

well, a google search answered my question. for any others that are curious, here is what I found in an interview roger steffens did with keith richards:

RS: And Toots is a old and dear friend. He was on my show. I did the Reggae Beat Show on the radio in L.A. for 400 (Inaudible) days worth. And Bob was our first guest. We started with Bob, so it’s been in my blood for a long time. It’s like you , once you hear it you just can’t get away from it. I went to Jamaica with my wife in 76. Leroy Smart pick my pocket in Tuff Gong.


KR: Yeah, he would. (Laughs)

Has he picked pocket anytime in the last 37 years?

I couldn't imagine stories about myself from 38 years ago being used to define me 2014.

God bless the internet......

leroy is cool, definitely a lot of personality. maybe at like volume of 11 like on spinal tap where i usually prefer a personality with a volume of about 6 or 7... but he's an interesting character for sure.

he passed through SD about 3-4 years ago right after i moved back and i interviewed him as part of some streaming radio i was doing with tribe of kings. dude had a rough upbringing and it gave me some insight into his unique style. really makes sense to me now.

he was still in good voice although i could see it being like other singers of his vintage where he could sound really clean and good on some days and other days it might not be really good. but what i heard at that time was nice... i stood a few feet away as he cut some mean dubs.

Thanks for the feedback, so nice. TBH, Leroy always sounded to me like more "style" than "voice", and I'm guessing his personality has a lot to do with his success as a musician.

His popularity in the mid-80s in JA was impressive, & while buying my favorite sides by him I also thought

This guy has a voice Jamaican listeners love & American listeners will never embrace

Real yard vibes in this singer.
