Tribute To Barry Brown

--- Tribute To The Late Great Barry Brown ---

“Ram Dance Masters’ spotlights the career of popular and prolific singer Barry Brown. His heyday was in the late seventies at the dawning of the dancehall era. All the sound systems of the day would feature a selection of Barry’s tunes and he was a regular around the many Kingston studios, cutting great records for all the top producers. Barry Brown worked extensively with Bunny Lee for many years as well as working with newer producers like Sugar Minott and Linval Thompson. His Channel One output continued his run of success into the eighties, with the mighty “Far East” perhaps being his biggest and most popular record with dance-goers. He even tried his hand at self production, and this yielded more great music but was less of a success commercially. He continued to record extensively with hits produced by Junjo Lawes, Niney and Clement Dodd at Studio One, but as the years continued other singers rose to the top leaving Brown struggling to make a living as a singer.

We salute Barry Brown here with a mix of some of his finest records, a guest appearance on David Rodigan’s sound, as well as a rare live concert recorded just a year before his untimely death in 2004.”
