Synopsis

Album Description
When Niney released Dennis Brown's "Westbound Train" he was already one of the top producers in Jamaica. He had scored with his own "Blood and Fire" which was song of the year in 1972, and was producing and arranging for both Bunny Lee and Joe Gibbs. But it was his work with Dennis Brown that would catapult both he and Dennis truly into the limelight. This collection follows Dennis Brown's career from the mid-Seventies straight to the early Nineties just before his untimely death at age 42. The eighteen Niney-produced tracks are true Reggae classics and most are collected here together for the first time. With hits, rare tracks, and some previously unreleased versions, this is a perfect view of Dennis Brown's career.
