Music fans, especially those from the rocksteady era, remember harmony group The Cables for their smash hits What Kind of World and Baby Why.

Last year one of the trio’s members, Keble Drummond, released his debut album, Mellow Moods of Music. The 13-song set is largely a tribute to his musical heroes, including Smokey Robinson and Jimmy Cliff.

“Reaction to the album has been strong and positive with good support from radio DJs who have been playing different cuts. Promotion is not as easy as it seems, but I produced a strong album that will withstand the test of time,” the South Florida-based Drummond told OBSERVER ONLINE.

Robinson’s Cruising, Cliff’s Many Rivers to Cross and Rebel in Me and The Beatles classic, Let it Be, are some of the songs Drummond covers on ‘Mellow Moods’.

There is also a version of Baby Why, a song he wrote in 1968. Let’s be Friends and Why Can’t we Love are two of the originals on the album which Drummond produced.

Along with Vincent Stoddart and Elbert Stewart, Drummond formed The Cables, one of countless harmony groups that emerged during the 1965-68 rocksteady period.

What Kind of World and Baby Why are two of the great songs from that era. They were produced by Clement ‘Coxson’ Dodd for his Studio One label.

Now in his mid-60s, Drummond has lived in the United States for over 30 years. He performs sporadically with The Cables and as a solo act.
