Junior Reid From his early days in the Waterhouse area of Kingston, Junior Reid was busy establishing himself as a singer of note with the group Voice of Progress. An early album for the Negus Roots label featured the track "Mini Bus Driver", and the Junior Reid sound was felt throughout the world. Interestingly enough, the Negus Roots label out of England was also responsible for first recording Don Carlos, also a Waterhouse singer and close associate of Junior Reid. Reid started turning out many hit, including, "Boom Shak-A-Lak" and "Foreign Mind". It was at this early peak of popularity when he was asked to sing lead for Black Uhuru (1985).  Around 1991, Junior Reid set up the JR Recording Studio and record distribution plant in Kingston, Jamaica. A number of top Jamaican artist have recorded there, and Junior Reid has produced a good number of critically respected albums. From his humble beginnings in the ghetto of Waterhouse to the CEO of a major recording studio and record label, Junior Reid has accomplished a great deal on this short time on earth, and his future continues to look even brighter.
