"Barrington Levy's outstanding career as a top-class reggae vocalist began more than two and a half decades ago. Called reggae's ""Mellow Canary"" by virtue of his strong, pure vocal style, he's renowned as the first original singer of the dancehall era, inspiring many imitators en route. In 1975, Levy recorded his debut track ""My Black Girl"" with the Mighty Multitude. His 1979 album Englishman on Greensleeves established him as the reggae star of the early '80s, spawning hit singles with ""Sister Carol,"" ""Look Youthman,"" ""Eventide Fire A Disaster,"" and ""Mary Long Tongue."" In 1983, he made a big splash in Great Britain with ""Under Me Sensi,"" a tune that spent 12 weeks topping the charts and became the basis for the 1985 dancehall mega-hit ""Under Mi Sleng Teng."" Other major singles included ""Murderer"" and ""Here I Come,"" a 1985 collaboration with Jah Screw."
