LESLIE KONG FROM BEVERLEY RECORDS BEATS DEM AGAIN WITH BAM BAM Featured
Kong, who died in August 1971 from a heart attack, produced the first song by a teenaged singer named Bob Marley (or Bobby Martell at the time) in 1962. The song, Judge Not, was done for Kong's Beverley's Records.
Kong was only 38 years old when he died, but he amassed one of the great catalogues in Jamaican music history with Beverley's which had stars like Derrick Morgan, Jimmy Cliff, Toots and the Maytals, and Desmond Dekker on its roster.
Bam Bam was orginally written and recorded by Toots and the Maytals in 1966. Produced by Leslie Kong, it won the first Festival Song Competition that year.
Sister Nancy 'borrowed' some of the lyrics for her breakthrough song which was recorded for Riley's Techniques label.
Sister Nancy recently did a collabo called Bad, with United Kingdom-based singjay Stylo G.
