“… Following on the heels of Johnny Clarke and Linval Thompson, youth singer Barry Brown penetrated the early dancehall scene of the late ’70s with a slue of durable roots records that today stand as evergreen gems. Like Clarke, Thompson, Sammy Dread, Rod Taylor, Sugar Minott and other popular vocalists of the day, Brown brought an immediate, street-level atmosphere to his records. His passionately raw delivery wasn’t candy-coated sweet or silky smooth. It was simple, direct, amicable and real. Listening to records like ‘No Wicked Shall Enter The Kingdom Of Zion’ and ‘Politician’ you knew this young brother wasn’t from uptown. Barry Brown was no stranger to Bunny Lee when the record producer finally agreed to record the young singer in the late ’70s. Like so many other ghetto youths yearning for an opportunity to grab a hold of the brass ring, Brown was a constant fixture along Idler’s Rest and outside King Tubby’s and Randy’s, persistently approaching Bunny Lee and other producers for a break.”
