Ken Boothe started recording in 1963 at the age of 12 as a duo. He had already been in the "business" before that.
Ken is still active and has gone into gospel to.
Many Caribbean/South American artist did not make it outside there own musical region. Of the few that made it Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Jimmy James and Laurel Aitken are the best known.
One of my coming posts will be on Jimmy James and the original Jamaican version of "Come To Me Softly" released in 1963 long before the US version hit the market.
