Waterloo Records

Includes many of the biggest reggae hits of the era. Eleven tracks new to CD. One of Jamaican's most popular and influential artists. By the late 1970s, Dennis Emmanuel Brown was widely acknowledged as the Crown Prince Of Reggae, having scored more Jamaican hits in the decade than any of his contemporaries - including Bob Marley And The Wailers. Following a hugely successful spell with famed producer Niney, he reunited with serial hitmaker Joe Gibbs, for whom he had previously recorded earlier in the decade, with their renewed union immediately subsequently spawning a succession of major Jamaican hits. Among these were such reggae classics as 'Ghetto Girl', 'Equal Rights', 'Ain't That Loving You', 'How Can I Leave You', 'Man Next Door' (as famously covered by The Slits), and a memorable reworking of, 'Money In My Pocket', which six years after his original 1972 version provided the singer with his international breakthrough, with the single peaking at 14 in the UK charts in the Spring of 79. This 2CD collection brings together both sides of all of Brown's Joe Gibbs-produced 7" singles released between 1977 to 1981, which include the aforementioned hits, his remaining reggae chartbusters and an array of dub and DJ versions, eleven of which make their CD debut.
