JAMAICA POLICE KILL PEOPLE AND GET AWAY WITH MURDER
Lawrence Lindo better known as Jack Ruby, was a Jamaican record producer and sound system operator, best known for his 1970s productions of artists such as Burning Spear.
Ruby was based in Ocho Rios and during his time was the only major Jamaican record producer not headquartered in Kingston. He ran the Jack Ruby Hi Fi sound system and is considered one of the best roots reggae producers of the 1970s, having established a distinctive sound, noted for the unique use of horn arrangements. Ruby produced Burning Spear’s Marcus Garvey and Man in the Hills albums.
In the 1980s he suffered from ill-health and his productions were less regular, although he produced the debut album by Foundation in 1988. He died in 1989.
