    I would guess - yes!

    In a parallel universe Sun Ra is playing reggae instead of jazz, with Prince Far I his toaster of choice...

      I've finished reading the in depth book on Dennis Brown by Penny Reel:

      https://www.amazon.co.uk/Deep-Down-D.../dp/0954195906

      It reminded me of just how many great tunes Dennis made over the years. Hard to pick one individual tune for the desert island but if I had to, it would probably be this one:

      Tribulation



      Also check the incredible dub version of said tune on the "sledgehammer dub" album:

      Tribulation Version

          Great tune, but the laughter sound effects always distract me a bit on that version. I like this mix - I had the organ vamp at the beginning as my ringtone for a while.

            Agreed BC - the first time I heard (and taped this) was on the radio - no laughing - and yet the version I subsequently picked up on record had the laughing...

            The Upsetter having the last laugh - as per usual
