Tyrone Taylor: Tyrone Taylor Has Left the Building

Not a great video. A clumsy bootleg in fact. But sad to hear of the untimely death of Tyrone Taylor whose lovers rock standard Cottage in Negril became a huge hit in 1983 almost two years after it was cut. Hopefully a tape of the song from Sunsplash 1984 will become available and would be a much better tribute. A song written, voiced and produced by Taylor himself.

The Guardian obituary tells his story.
