Wikipedia - "Lacksley Castell, sometimes misspelled Laxley, Lacksly, Lasky or Locksley Castel (1959 – 1983) was a Jamaican reggae singer best known for his work in the early 1980s. Lacksley Castell was born in 1959, although some sources claim 1962. Growing up in Kingston's Waterhouse district, along with artists such as Black Uhuru and The Travellers, Lacksley recorded in what was known as the 'Waterhouse style'. Castell became friends with Hugh Mundell who helped both him and his friend Junior Reid to get started in the music business. That resulted in Castell's first single releases in 1978, 'Babylon World' and 'Love in Your Heart', recorded with Augustus Pablo.  ..."
