Here I come with Love and not Hatred, surely Goodness and Mercy shall follow me all the days of my life. . . ..
Dennis Emanuel Brown - "The General", "D. Brown", "Crown Prince of Reggae", entertained us musically for more than 25 years.
He gave us many, many hits. Tunes like:
- Love and Hate
- Here I Come
- Get Myself Together
- Money in my Pocket
- Have you Ever
- Should I
- Sitting & Watching
- Stop the Fussing & Fighting
- and many, many more...........
From the early days of Coxsone Dodd's Studio One to his last work at Bunny Gemini's Record Factory, Dennis made music that has become the foundation of what we all know as Reggae.
Dennis's voice and style is among the most imitated in Reggae and Dancehall today. He was there when Reggae was in it's first stages. When he started back in the early 1970's he was only 13 years old and he took Jamaica by storm.
After a couple of years with Coxsone he worked with almost every producer in Jamaica and in the seventies and early eighties he recorded dozens of hits and what we now call classics. Many of the young partygoers will always remember Dennis Brown for his pulsating dancehall version of "Here I Come".
Hail ! The Crown Prince of Reggae Music
A devout Rastafarian and a member of the Twelve Tribes of Israel Organization, Dennis gave so much to us musically and his untimely death has robbed us of a talented singer/songwriter. His memory and his music will live on forever.
Thanks for sharing brother Dennis!
