Prince Lincoln Thompson, nicknamed ‘Socks’, ‘Sax’ in patois, because he was fond of coloured socks, became know in the late 1960s as a member of The Tartans. Other members of the group, who would later make a name for themselves in the reggae scene, were Cedric Myton and Devon Russell. With the single Dance All Night the group tasted local notoriety. The next step in his career took place in the early 1970s when he recorded some very memorable tunes for Coxsone Dodd. With his distinctive falsetto voice he managed to strike the right chord with the Jamaican audience.

In 1975 he founded the Royal Rass-es with Cedric Myton and Keith Peterkin. In the meantime, he had founded the God Sent label, on which he released several quality singles, including Love The Way It Should Be and Kingston 11. After a deal with Ballistic Records/United Artists, the album Humanity was released in 1979.
