Dennis Brown - Wolf & Leopards

As a youth, I heard the voice constantly in all the dances I frequented. However this album introduced me to the late great Dennis Emanuel Brown. I was at a festival once and they were giving away free copies of this record and that’s how I got one. Wolf & Leopards is an exceptional work of art and science. Dennis Brown was the sound of my youth and just as important as Bob Marley, it was just that Dennis Brown didn’t break into the mainstream. In fact they call Dennis the prince of reggae and Bob the king of reggae.
