Dennis Brown, Delroy Wilson & Big Youth With The Soul Syndicate In 1974

What we’re about to do right now is go back. Waaay back. The year is 1974. The place, Kingston Jamaica’s fabulous Turntable Club. Chinna Smith and the Soul Syndicate band are rocking live on the bandstand with King Tubby’s and Errol T on the mix and Niney the Observer in the building. Man like D.Brown, Delroy Wilson, and Big Youth round the microphone stand—alongside the big bad hornsman Mr. Alexander Portious doing the best Gregory Isaacs cover version ever. Are you ready for some real live reggae music? Well you came to the right place. Let it go…

Okay that was dope. (Might as well go ahead and cop the full album?) But why am I becoming obsessed with the sexy voice of Marie the MC? Who is she anyway? Gotta link Niney for details. Stay tuned…
