King Kong, Nitty Gritty, Half Pint and Tenor Saw: Featured Reggae Singers

This was a listener requested mix consisting of the biggest tracks from 4 singers: King Kong, Half Pint, Tenor Saw and Nitty Gritty. Ray said he thought these artists sound alike and that called for a mix with their hits.

Reggae Lover Podcast Episode 16 – King Kong, Nitty Gritty, Half Pint, Tenor Saw

Their voices are easily distinguishable to my ear, but I agree that Tenor Saw and Nitty Gritty sang with a very similar and unique style.  King Kong ended up copying that style of vocal delivery, but Half Pint carved out his own lane on the way to enormous success in the 1980s and 90s as a reggae crooner.

RIP to Nitty Gritty and Tenor Saw whose likes were cut down way too early. This is a dedication to you and every reggae lover.
