December 7, 2007: Dennis Brown part 1


Dennis Emmanuel Brown, one of the most classic and well respected artists of reggae music. The thing about Dennis' music is that he started with quality music for Prince Buster and Coxsone Dodd and continued to create high quality music for decades. The only artists that might compare with him is Gregory Isaacs.

Dennis was born on Orange Street, one of the musical hubs of Kingston. He first hit big with Coxsone Dodd on a re-recording of the Van Dyke's "No Man is an Island" and he later went on to record an album with Dodd.

As with any prolific and talented singer, Dennis worked with the spectrum of Jamaican Producers... Derrick Harriot, Joe Gibbs, Niney, Coxsone Dodd, Prince Buster, Clive Chin, Herman Chin Loy, and others. This show collects some of those works not recorded with Niney, starting with some of the early but not earliest tunes, then on to some Studio One material, some of his own productions and then on to some of his later
