A popular roots singer who gained fame in the late 1970s into the early 1980s, Delgado scored big with the number one single Merry Go Round, recorded on Sly and Robbie's Taxi label. "Junior was a good artiste. We produced two songs for him, Merry Go Round and Fort Augustus. He was a talented songwriter and a very cool person. I actually spoke to him three weeks ago when he called from London," producer and musician Sly Dunbar recalled.
