Dennis Brown & Superstar Friends – Reggae Legends

mmmmm
“Dennis Brown, born 1st February 1957, was a child star in Jamaica after recording the Van Dykes song ‘No Man Is An Island’ for Studio One in 1970. Besides recording albums for Coxsone Dodd he worked with numerous producers who all acknowledged his incredible talent. Joe Gibbs and Niney the Observer recorded extensive and highly successful material with the vocalist, Sly & Robbie & Derrick Harriott amongst others also benefited from his talents and vice versa. He established his own DEB label in 1978 and (self-)produced various roots classics before the label folded in 1979. For his impressive voice, countless hits and widely acknowledged credibility he was nicknamed the Crown Prince of Reggae. After dancehall music became more popular than roots reggae he also scored hits during the eighties. In the mid 90’s his health got worse due to a drug addiction, his shining moments got more sparse and in 1999 he died because of a collapsed longue. His legacy is one of the biggest catalogues in reggae history. …”
