Although going through numerous lead singers and musicians they have remained one of the most recognized and prolific reggae band for over 50 years. The roots of Black Uhuru were formed in Kingston Jamaica's Waterhouse district also known as "Firehouse" in the early '60s. Though considered to be one of Jamaica's toughest neighborhoods it's home to several other reggae singers and musicians. It was where Duckie Simpson grew up and learned to sing from boyhood friends Winston "Pipe" Matthews and Lloyd "Bread" McDonald of the Wailing Souls and Bob Marley. He recorded four tracks with the Wailing Souls before forming his own group. The original Uhuru's (Swahili for freedom) were Derrick "Duckie" Simpson, Euvin "Don Carlos" Spencer and Rudolph "Garth" Dennis. They only recorded a few singles "Folk Songs", "Time Is On Our Side", and "Slow Coach" before separating. Don went solo and Garth joined Wailing Souls. Duckie reformed the group adding Michael Rose & Errol "Tarzan" Nelson, both from Waterhouse. They recorded their debut album "Love Crises" in 1977 at Prince Jammy's famous studio in Waterhouse on St. Lucia Road. It was later re-released as "Black Sounds Of Freedom". Errol later left to join The Jayes. He was soon replaced by American female singer & dancer Sandra "Puma" Jon
