The Beginning of the End 
2nd album from 1976
The year was 1969, and Nassau was in for the wave of this energetic young band called Beginning Of The End. The band, according to lead singer Raphael, was quite a unique group inasmuch as it was heavily influenced by the pop culture that was very vibrant in the United States. The flower power movement and the hippie generation gravitated towards artists like Marvin Gaye, Impressions, Jerry Butler, and Jimmy Hendrix. Hard rock, rhythm 'n' blues, funk, jazz, and of course the Latin music that was heard over the airwaves from Cuba went into one big melting pot that helped in creating Nassau's newest sound. The members made a decision to quit their jobs and rehearse for six months in order to make this band a success. By the time of their second album in 1976, the band was managed by Don Taylor, also Bob Marley's manager. "Don took us to Byron Lee's studio in Jamaica and used Teddy Randazzo (Little Anthony & The Imperials) to direct the sessions," adds Ray. "He gave us more of an uptempo jazz funk sound with Chicago-style horns." The album led to a run of incredible bad luck. Booked to support Marvin Gaye's What's Goin' On tour, the US Musicians Union stepped in and ordered a US group to fill the slot. They then joined a major Bob Marley tour in 1976 before he injured his foot, cancelling all dates.
