Kashief Lindo covers Chi-Lites classic

Fifty years ago when The Chi-Lites released The Coldest Days of my Life, house parties were the rage in Jamaica and the lush ballad was a favourite of soul music lovers like Willie Lindo.

The veteran producer’s son, Kashief Lindo, covers the dreamy classic for his latest song, his version is titled Coldest Days of my Life, scheduled for release on November 25. It bears the seal of Heavy Beat Records, their Florida-based company that has had success with major acts like Beres Hammond, Dennis Brown and Boris Gardiner.

In addition to vocals, he played several instruments on Coldest Days of my Life. His father, a leading session guitarist at Federal Records during the 1970s, played guitar, while Paul Douglas of Toots and The Maytals fame is on drums.

Coldest Days of my Life is the follow-up to See You in Your Arms Tonight, which is from the younger Lindo’s album, released last year by Heavy Beat Records. The singer is best known for easy-listening songs such as No Can Do and What Kind of World.

Lindo senior is head of Heavy Beat Records, which hit its stride during the 1980s with hits like What One Dance Can Do by Hammond, Inseparable by Dennis Brown, and Gardiner’s I Wanna Wake up With You.

The sound of Reggae is widely recognised because of its acoustically formed bass and drum downbeat, and its offbeat rhythm section. With such a diversity in style it is also considered complex enough to attract progressively minded musicians. A music that has a strong association with dance covering a variety of styles while also offering a background beat for those sharing Biblical chants of Zion. It is hard to ignore Reggae’s influence and how it interacts with our day-to-day lives. Shared as background music for films and advertising driving its heavy bass lines literally felt wherever rock and pop are played. Reggae has an affinity with mainstream British pop; recognised within the hip-hop culture and considered “cool” by those with no connection to Jamaica. As lovers of reggae my aim is to build a community of reggae followers that can share thoughts, news, events as listeners, artists, DJ’s and hosts.
