Sad news coming out of Jamaica that singer Pat Kelly has passed away. Pat Kelly sang with The Techniques after Slim Smith left the band. He also had a great solo career as well! Kelly had this soulful, falsetto voice that I just loved hearing when I saw him perform at Hammerstein Ballroom in 2007. That ‘Vintage Series’ album is one of my favorite reggae albums ever! Not a bad track on it. I was really hoping to get to see him perform again, saying that just a few weeks ago and now he’s gone. Hearts go out to his family and friends.
