As I've been working through my collection preparing for some shows focusing on Lee Perry, I came across the sounds of Mr. Max Romeo. He got his start back in the day working with the vocal group called the Emotions and later went solo. In his early days, he worked with Ken Lack of the Caltone label, then on to Bunny Lee, Niney and Lee Perry. His tune Wet Dream for Bunny brought him to worldwide acclaim, and after some change of perspective he hit it big again with Rasta influneced work done for Lee Perry.
For this session, I figured I'd open up some of his beautiful work for all of you to hear. I start off with some top tunes from his days with Lee Perry, including my own little remix of "Smokey Room," then on to his big tunes "Chase The Devil" and "One Step Forward." His tune "Valley of Jehosaphat" is definitely one of my favorites, primarily due to the dread horns.
