Remembering the Music of Dennis Brown


Today would have been the birthday of Reggae Legend Dennis Brown. He was born on this day in 1957 in Kingston, Jamaica. He died on 1st July 1999 after a period of illness no doubt relating to his addiction to crack.

The Crown Prince of Reggae recorded more than 75 albums and a few of them I'll provide links to at the end of this.

His biggest hit for which he is known worldwide was 'Money in my Pocket', originally released in 1977.
