I was very sad this morning to hear of the passing of the great reggae singer, John Holt. Help Me Make It Through The Night is very possibly my favourite reggae love song, and the contrast between his sweet voice and the electric brass section always sends shivers down my spine. We were lucky enough to see John perform several times at the Barbados Reggae Festival, most recently this April, by which time he was probably already ill, but it took nothing from his performance. A great musician, who will be sadly missed.
