He had developed respiratory issues, probably exacerbated by longstanding problems with drug addiction, namely cocaine ,  leading to him being taken ill in May after touring in Brazil with other reggae singers, where he was diagnosed with pneumonia.
Patterson and former prime minister, serving at the time as opposition leader, Edward Seaga of the Jamaica Labour Party both spoke at Brown's funeral, which was held on 17 July in Kingston. The service, which lasted for three hours, also featured live performances by Maxi Priest , Shaggy , and three of Brown's sons.
Brown was then buried at Kingston's National Heroes Park. The Crown Prince of Reggae as he was commonly called. He has left us with a vast repertoire of songs which will continue to satisfy the hearts and minds of us all for generations to come. He has paid his dues. You want to know the true Dennis?
Listen to his lyrics. Dennis Brown was an inspiration and influence for many reggae singers from the late s through to the s, including Barrington Levy , Junior Reid , Frankie Paul , Luciano , Bushman , and Richie Stephens.
He was honoured on the first anniversary of his death by a memorial concert in Brooklyn , which featured performances from Johnny Osbourne , Micky Jarrett, Delano Tucker, and Half Pint. The Dennis Emanuel Brown Trust works to educate youngsters, maintain and advance the memory of Dennis Brown, and help to provide youngsters with musical instruments. Heartbeat is also the go to label for the Wailers Studio One recordings, almost the only option if you want them on decent vinyl or CD. Jackie P likes this.
I second all of Dubmart 's recomendations above except the first two, which I haven't heard. Here are some more artist specific compilations and reissues from Heartbeat. Bongo Red unfortunaltely has some tracks that have later overdubs, but it is still essential. Culture: Trod On and Production Something , Sonia Pottinger productions, outtakes on the former from the Black Rose album and discomixes on the latter.
Meditations: Deeper Roots , has tracks from their first album. Junior Byles: Curly Locks , compilation that has some alternate takes. I Roy: Touting I Self , compiled in co-operation with the man himself. And then there's the straight reissues of album, some which were issued twice, the second time as Deluxe editions with bonus tracks, here are some favorites: Delroy Wilson: Original Eighteen DeLuxe , actually Original Twelve , but since tracks were added the title was no longewr suitable I guess.
There's also the Alton Ellis Sunday Coming album, maybe never a Deluxe candidate, this was kept in print longer, so easier to find. Again I must send out a warning about the CD-R business, this has been the great downside with collecting Heartbeat, that there are so many such versions around, of seeminlgy all and any title some more common than others , and you never know what you'll get since seller never know this is what they have Ok, over to some new releases instead!
If Santa doesn't bring enough Reggae you can always get yoursleves these next year. I count at least six previous re-issues of it from them in the CD age and I have too many of them. The LLoyd Charmers and Ken Boothe kind of go togethter, and are nicely done since they are based around actual albums. Collectors will revel in the cuts culled from albums, the 12" extended mix of "Tenement Yard," an alternate version of John Holt 's "Only a Smile" one of four excellent covers found here , Dillinger's DJ version of "Here I Come," and, most spectacularly, a ferocious live version of "Cassandra," seeing the light of day for the first time here.
In some ways, Gate is a greater revelation, and not just for collectors. Hot's hits are so familiar from previous compilations that the very freshness of these tracks enables the listener to discover Brown 's power anew. Holness' deep roots production played to the singer's strengths, while the Soul Syndicates' impeccable playing is also showcased.
There's a palpable chemistry at work here, with all the parties involved pulling out all the stops, not just on their own behalf, but to also complement each other. The guitar frills on "God Bless Our Souls," for example, give an added sense of poignancy to Brown 's own superbly soulful delivery. But with 19 excellent tracks to choose from, it's almost impossible to play favorites, so why bother?
