Sugar Simone: King without a throne/Suddenly


Released as Sue WI 4029. Keith “Sugar” Simone was born in Jamaica but emigrated to the UK in 1961. He became a recording engineer for a music publishing company who were among the backers of a pirate radio station called Radio Atlanta. Their Carnival Records released some singles by “Sugar and Dandy”. Wikipedia beleives these were Dandy Livingstone double tracked, but we suggest that Sugar Simone might be “Sugar” in “Sugar and Dandy”‘s “What a life” which was released on Carnival Records in 1964.

Sugar Simone’s recording “King Without a Throne” was recorded by Island Records in 1967 and released on the Sue label; it remains Sugar Simone’s best known record. Simone also recorded under the name Tito Simon and had recordings issued on the Trojan label.

Did not chart.
