Dennis Brown

Dennis Brown exits the stage at Reggae Sunsplash in Montego bay. (1987)

I will always remember this show, it was the 10th anniversary of Reggae Sunsplash. Everyone was there, Culture, Burning Spear, Freddie McGregor, Gregory, Toots, Bunny Wailer, Yellowman, Third World, and the list goes on and on. The crown prince of reggae played for well over an hour in the early morning hours with the sun beating down like a 10lb. sledge-hammer, it was hot. He had a new album, Inseparable,  that came out a few days earlier, had some nice tunes on it, “Ababa Jahni” was one of my favorites. He also recorded a live album of this show that was re-released not long ago, it adds a few more songs for some killer material. In this image Dennis Brown is coming off the stage before going back for a twenty minute encore.
