description

Dennis Brown has always been cited as JJohhny Clarke is one of the great vocalists that ruled the Jamaican Dancehall scene from the mid 70's to early 80's.
While Bob Marley was out conquering the world, Dennis Brown, Gregory Isaacs and Johnny Clarke were winning the hearts of the Jamaican people.
Johnny Clarke's use of the 'Flying Cymbal's sound took the island by storm and produced a run of hit singles few could match.
Johnny Clarke (b.1955 Jamaica) cut his first record 'God Made the Sea and Sun' after winning a local singing contest in the Bull Bay area of Jamaica.
Although the single was not a hit, but it led to two follow up tracks for producer Rupie Edwards,' Everyday Wandering' and 'Julie' that fared much better, on the Island and overseas in England and Canada.
These tracks also brought him to the attention of Bunny Lee.
A working relationship began and this relationship would produce a prolific catalogue of music.
We have compiled some of Johnny Clarkes killer tracks cut with the great Bunny Lee and put them alongside their dub cuts that were worked over at King Tubbys studio.
'Roots Natty Roots Natty Congo','King of the Arena','Move Out of Babylon' and 'None Shall Escape the Judgement' all cuts that ruled the sound systems when they first appeared in the 1970's.
So sit back and enjoy the Roots Natty Sessions where vocal meets version.....Respect,,..
amaica's favourite singer.
While Bob Marley set out to conquer the world, Dennis's popularity on the island grew with every year.
His most prolific period is said to be with producer Niney the Observer,who led the singer down a more Roots avenue.He put Dennis on some of his heaviest rhythms.
Throwing also into the pot the fact that these rhythms were also to be mixed by the Dubmaster himself King Tubby we are bound to get one of the best Dub albums around.
Here is where the Crown Prince of Reggae Meets Niney the Observer at King Tubbys.
It's from this period that we have focused on and it's these
