VP Records releases tribute to the Reggae Prince with We Remember Dennis Brown
Dubbed the Crown Prince of Reggae by the great Bob Marley himself, Dennis brown’s contribution to Reggae is not be overlooked. As would be expected, his discography is so extensive that it includes dozens of albums and hundreds of singles that were released on numerous labels over the years.
“We Remember Dennis Brown” is a much-deserved tribute to one of reggae’s top crooners, a true vocal marvel whose music was widely acclaimed not only in Jamaica but in Britain and the rest of the world.
The 30-track, two-CD set dedicates one disc to Brown’s political and devotional songs, such as “Words of Wisdom,” ”Promised Land” and “Wolves and Leopards.” Disc two covers Brown’s romantic side, with tracks like “Money In My Pocket,” one of his signature tunes, “Love Has Found Its Way” and “If I Had the World.”
Among the many highlights are R&B singer Marsha Ambrosius’ take on “Have You Ever,” lover’s rock maestro Gyptian’s “How Could I,” Hawaiian band The Green’s inspiring “Promised Land” and former Black Uhuru frontman Michael “Mykal” Rose’s tongue-tripping “Easy Take It Easy.”
