The Morwells formed in 1973 comprising Eric “Bingy Bunny” Lamont and Maurice “Blacka” Wellington, The band expanded to a trio in 1974 with the addition of Louis Davis, formerly of The Versatiles alongside Junior Byles. David was a talented arranger and also taught Lamont to play guitar. Wellington began working as a studio engineer and producer for Joe Gibbs in 1976, working on the early recordings by Culture, while Lamont joined The Revolutionaries as rhythm guitarist, although they continued to work as The Morwells. Their new connections gave them access to much of Jamaica’s musical talent of the era, and in 1977 they were joined by bassist Errol ‘Flabba’ Holt. Recorded in 1977 ‘Crab Race’ also features the likes Sly & Robbie, Franklyn Bubbler Waul, Tarzan and Sticky.
