Ken Boothe

avatar

Ken Boothe's recording career began with the legendary West Indian record producer Clement "Coxsone" Dodd. Rather strangely, Boothe started by recording a version of Sandie Shaw's "Puppet on a String" in 1967. Later the same year, Boothe and Alton Ellis had a successful U.K. tour with the group The Soul Vendors. After leaving Coxsone, Boothe recorded for Keith Hudson and Leslie Kong. He then formed the group Conscious Minds with B.B. Seaton. By the early 1970s Boothe started providing hits for Sonia Pottinger. He is known as "Mr Rocksteady" for his prominence during that musical period.
