"Rico's children and wonderful close friend, Rasta Larry, will be attending the special honorary show next Friday 11th Sept (planned since last year), at the 229 Club in London, where Rico was due to attend and receive an award accolade, from the Jamaican High Commissioner (along with Owen Gray and Prince Buster). The family will receive the award on Rico's behalf. The night will include a speech by Jerry Dammers and performance by The Neville Staple Band, plus other special guests.
Bless you Rico. Your legendary name and music will live forever "

I love Rico. And all-time favorite since, well, forever. Rest in Power.

So glad he made it out to SNWMF. That was a joy to behold and a memory I cherish.

From a conversation with Ras Michael, this is Rico playing. No LP credits. Also Lloyd Brevett on upright bass and Jackie Mittoo played organ. Recorded at Studio One.





That Rico video documentary posted above is really great. Thanks!

Sad to hear the news. I was in Hawaii and hadn't heard.
Funny, when I got back to sf, the first cd I put on was one I don't hear often: Rico.
Was just appreciating it in a new way...what a loss.
