Biography

Justin Hinds (7 May 1942 – 16 March 2005) was a Jamaican ska and rocksteady singer, in company of the backing vocalists the Dominoes, a duo comprising Dennis Sinclair and Junior Dixon, he is best known for his work with Duke Reid’s Treasure Isle Records, where his most notable song, “Carry Go Bring Come” recorded in late 1963, went to number one in Jamaica. He recorded seventy singles between 1964 and 1966, and was the most popular artist on the record label.

Hinds was born in Saint Ann Parish, Jamaica in 1942. He started his musical career singing in bars and on the beach in Ochos Rios. Hinds moved to Kingston, Jamaica where he became influenced by Rastafari. He was turned down by Coxsone Dodd’s label, but signed with Treasure Isle Records. By this stage, the Dominoes consisting of Dennis Sinclair and Junior Dixon had become his backing vocalists.

His first recording with Duke Reid was “Carry Go Bring Come”, made in late 1963 in one take. It became a big hit, topping the Jamaican chart for two months, just before the Wailers got their big hit with “Simmer Down”. “Carry Go Bring Come” would later be covered by the British ska band The Selecter on their 1980 album Too Much Pressure, and by Desmond Dekker and The Specials on King of Kings.

Hinds was one of the biggest acts in Jamaican music during the 1960s.

    Justin Hinds is easily one of my all time favorite Jamaican vocalists. Such great harmonies from the Dominoes on these early tracks and I feel that the Skatalites when the back them did their best work of the era.
