Winston 'Flame' Jarrett - true reggae pioneer born in 1940 in Jamaica..

Winston Jarrett is also known as 'Rastaman from Trenchtown'.

'Flames' did a number of early classics like ‘Cry Tough,’ ‘Dance Crasher,’ ‘The Preacher’, and ‘I Have Got A Date.’ The Flames were recording for Duke Reid, but were lured away by Sir Coxsone. Alton moved to England in 1969 and Winston reformed the group as The Righteous Flames.

In addition to 17 albums and dozens of solo and compilation recordings (see discography) , Winston backed up Ken Boothe, Marcia Griffiths and Winston Francis. He also worked with Enid Cumberland and Larry Marshall. Winston recorded over a hundred titles during the early seventies for Joe Gibbs and Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry among others.
