Description

Live at Montreux on LP

Dennis Manuel Brown belongs to that élite band of reggae artists who have succeeded in achieving true international stardom. Often hailed today as 'Bob Marley's favorite singer' Dennis Brown had managed not only to achieve elusive chart success with 'Money In My pocket' but has also regularly performed in the United Kingdom and Europe. This album captures the artist at their peak of his performing ability during his considerable run of chart successes in 1979. He performed with the outstanding 'We The People' band made up of the cream of the Jamaican session world including Robbie Shakespeare, Sly Dunbar, and Lloyd Parkes. The tour was fraught with problems not least of which was the enormous financial burden on promoter and record company alike caused by the overheads involved in moving more than a dozen people throughout Europe and is probably best illustrated by the fact that every one of the musicians missed their flight from Kingston! In the midst of this chaos the tranquility of Montreux and it's superb annual festival was a welcome relief and became a special moment as these recording clearly show. Dennis played two shows that night sharing the bill with Peter Tosh and it was only too clear that Dennis Brown had arrived in the minds of the European audiences. The second show continued way into the night and ended with both artists and their musicians on stage together. This album has captured the essence of those concerts and as such is a classic not only for reggae fans but for all contemporary music audiences.
