When he stepped out from behind the mixing desk and picked up a microphone, reggae producer Carl Dwyer became Captain Sinbad, a swashbuckling DJ with scant output. Sinbad first appeared on-stage with the Sound of Silence sound system featuring Sugar Minott. A few late-'70s albums for Henry "Junjo" Lawes were released before his 1980 single with a young Little John, "51 Storm," became a Jamaican dancehall favorite. The year 1982 saw the release of the full-length The Seven Voyages of Captain Sinbad on Greensleeves, while 1983 found him on Dillinger's Oak label for the "Hotter Reggae Music" single and the CSA label for half of the Sinbad & the Metric System album (the other half belonged to Peter Metro). The Oak compilation Again arrived a year later and then Captain Sinbad disappeared, with Dwyer shifting his focus to production. ~ David JeffriesPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
