June 27, 2003: Barry Brown


Vocalist Barry Brown was the focus of the day... Barry Brown was one of those singers I hadn't heard about until I had been listening to reggae for some time. Eventually I started hearing about some of the work he did with producer Bunny Lee and heard some of the heavy tracks he did on tracks that had originally been voiced by Horace Andy.

For this show, I start off with his classic Studio One cut, "Far East" moving through the versions including the scorcher from Channel One. Throughout the show, I run riddims from Bunny Lee, Jah Thomas, Sugar Minott and others. Check it out...
