Remarks ‘Black Pride’ is the seminal Lovers Rock tune from Brown Sugar pressed loud for the first ever time
on this new one-off press limited-edition (just 1,000 copies worldwide) !
Brown Sugar formed in London in 1976 made up of teenagers Pauline Catlin, Caron Wheeler and Carol
Simms. After Brown Sugar Caron Wheeler became known worldwide as the vocalist in Soul II Soul and
Carol Simms launched a successful solo career under the name ‘Kofi'. “Black Pride” was originally
released on the Lovers Rock label, a fledgling reggae label formed by musicians Dennis Bovell and
John Kpiaye and producer Dennis Harris. Brown Sugar were unique – not only were they one of the
most important of the first wave of lovers rock groups, they were the only group who managed to
successfully blend together a reggae roots consciousness with a lovers rock sensibility. The classic
‘Black Pride’ perfectly reflects this unique sound.
