Bluesbusters Memorial 2008
Letter from the President. It is with such great sadness that I write this letter, especially while listening to the end product of this Blues Busters Memorial CD album which took some 15years in completion. This project had taken a lot of twist and turns but this by the grace of God, it's here today. Hi my name is Rev Delroy Baker; known to the music industry in the USA as Del Baker. It is a privilege to write these few words on behalf of these wonderful singers known internationally as The Blues Busters. I first heard their songs in the mid fifties on jukebox walking by a house of ill repute as a young boy in Montego Bay Jamaica. While still a young man I met them during a stage show with the internationally renown Sam and Dave "Hold on I am coming" at the famous Palladium theatre and then later, at Rusea High School in Lucea where I attended High School there we performed with popular Billy Vernon Band. At that time and so tender in age, I had to sneak out to see these famous fellers perform. It was amazing that these two guys were on the international stage while I was still in high school, and as rumors have it, they sacrificed finishing High school so as to pursue their life's dream. One thing I never will forget was the impact that the blend of their voices had on my life. These 12 unforgettable love songs are timeless, their singing full of soul, and their performances were dazzling. I had only wish that they were allowed more time on this side of the living for me to do more from their vast collection of golden hits. As you go down through these memorable songs I know that you will appreciate the recapturing of some of the golden moments of your own pass and memories, that made these men so special in our growing up years. I now see the blessing that has been assigned to me this awesome task! This had to be a call of God to meet these guys while we were all in the United States together to fulfill the desire of the Late Jack Plummer who work tirelessly with total conviction and myself in our combine attempt to prove that Jamaica has brought forth some of the most sensational artists on the world stage comparable, to any American soul Artist of our century. We were blessed when the opportunity arrived for us to do this project. I must say that this is one of the highlight of my life. To experience the chronological event from the dusty streets of Mo Bay to the multimillion recording studios in New York City with my "Soul Reggae Orchestra" This was truly a dream that only could have been realized once in any lifetime. I hope that you are as excited as myself in receiving this product and know that the proceeds of this Blues Busters Memorial.com will be going toward the scholarship to a young person's dream to higher Education.
