In line with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, to which Blackwell was inducted in 2001, he’s the single individual most responsible for turning the planet to reggae music. Returning to Britain in 1962, he sold records in the rear of his automobile to the Jamaican community.

Backed by Stanley Borden from RKO Entertainment, Blackwell’s company and reach grew well, and he went to invent the careers of Bob Marley, Grace Jones and U2 amongst a number of other varied high profile acts. He’s made many seminal records, including Marley’s “Catch A Fire” and “Uprising”.

Blackwell is involved with numerous philanthropic organizations. In 2003, Blackwell found the Goldeneye Film Festival, which ran for 3 years. In September that year, Blackwell received the enviable Jamaican Musgrave Medal, given to Jamaicans who shine in the arts, music and public service. Blackwell revisited his family’s heritage in Jamaica’s banana, coconut, and rum export sectors in 2009, when, in the age of 72 years, he introduced his own brand of rum, “Blackwell Black Gold”, onto the booze marketplace. The drink is manufactured from Jamaican sugar cane, water, and yeast, and aged in American oak barrels. In April 2009, great Britain magazine Music Week named Blackwell the most powerful figure in the last 50 years of the British music business.
