Barry Brown’s career came to the fore in the era when roots reggae morphed into the early dancehall sound in late 70s and early 80s. Barry paid his dues running errands around the West Kingston recording studios before getting his break under the guidance of Bunny Lee. Brown would go on to release a string of singles and albums with Lee throughout the late 70s, before working with Sugar Minott, King Jammy and Linval Thompson amongst many others. This collection contains singles and versions recorded in 1979, as well as an album’s worth of material from ‘81-‘82 that was shelved at the time. A must have archival piece for those who like their conscious roots reggae on wax and backed with that heavy, driving Radics sound.
