well, it seems that most of these singers probably have their own bands.
the only artists that might need a band are:
Horace Andy
Linval Thompson
Alton Ellis
Don Carlos

and i think even some of them might have their own bands now.

so, i dont see any reason for Fully to come out unless they are only backing 1 or 2 artists...

and winston jarrett
don carlos has his own band led by wadi gad i believe, they might back up some or all of the above.
so i believe youre right in a way, but still my bet is on fully and crew to be there.

or keith sterling. or gladdy anderson.

fact is, it was usually a studio conglomeration and not a touring band (uhurus back up i mean) and aside from sly and robbie themselves, personnel often changed frequently and even record credits cannot be truly trusted.

but the music speaks for itself.

but actually i do know that Jahwge was playing with them that year, with Michael.

had a show here... wicked set.

two backup singers (one male one female, same two that toured with him a few times), had Scientist here too.

-yes+ two back upz one male one female(young lions). also forwarded next yearz tour meeking stops @ BIG shows like Reggae on the Rocks 99' where i* was feeling on top of the world on such heights. the only reason i* mentioned about key player is because i* remember mykal introducing him in phoenix 98' quoteing something in dat nature. wish i* could remember his name. i* think he wears glasses if dat helps anyone. it was hot as alwayz dat nite. well anywayz! >1LUV*+*+*+*+*+*+*+
