2014 collection from the Reggae/Dancehall great. Following the likes of Johnny Clarke and Linval Thompson, Barry Brown (born 1962) was one of those Jamaican singers whose career came to the fore in the era when Roots Reggae morphed into the early Dancehall period in late '70s and early '80s. Barry Brown paid his dues running errands and being a constant presence 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 going on to work with other producers such as Sugar Minott, King Jammy and Linval Thompson amongst many others. Produced by Linval Thompson (whose voice was uncannily similar to Barry Brown's), this album contains a couple of singles and versions recorded in 1979 as well as an albums worth of material from 1981-1982 that was shelved at the time due a perceived over-saturation of Barry Brown material doing the rounds.
