IN the summer of 1981 when he made the pop charts in the United States
and Europe with I’ll Do Anything For You, Denroy Morgan assured himself a
place in the history books.
The song’s success earned him a deal with RCA Records, the first
Jamaican artiste signed to that major American label. It paved the way
for Jamaican acts such as Yellowman who got deals with other American
record companies in that decade.
To many in the contemporary music world, Morgan is best known as
patriarch of the Morgan Heritage band. However, he is quick to point out
that there is more to him than music, which is the focus of his
autobiography Confession Aloud, scheduled to be released by American
publishing company Hanover House in February.
