first heard this side on papa pilgrim's show in slc. the catalyst for me looking for his pre-itals works.
always loved his voice, especially on those night hawk productions.
i consider 'brutal out deh' an inspired manifestation, with ronnie davis issuing the prophetic message.

Unfortunately sometimes I only get turned on reggae singers once they pass. I really like Ronnie Davis. Very smooth romantic feel

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we must inform you all of the passing of a great man - Reggae foundation roots singer Jerome Ballin pka Ronnie Davis (formerly of Itals and The Tennors). After suffering a major stroke on Monday January 23rd, 2017, Ronnie closed his eyes and slept peacefully with his family at his bedside on Wednesday, January 25th 2017. We have lost a man who came from humble beginnings, who grew to become a favorite son, a good brother, a music legend, a wonderful husband and father, a much adored grand-father and a best friend to everyone who knew him. Although Ronnie is no longer with us, he has left us a strong legacy of music spanning 50 years that shall live on in the hearts and minds of people the world over. We take comfort in knowing that Ronnie lived to experience a major revival of his career recently, with the release of his latest album “Iyahcoustic”. Through social media, he was able to see how much his many fans worldwide loved his music. He was always in high spirits when the fans spoke and we are sure that he is in a better place and in higher spirits as we celebrate his life and his legacy. Ronnie is survived by his common-law wife Jennifer Ottey, his mother in England, his brothers and sisters, his daughters Shauna, Stacy, @Simone and Jasmine, sons Ryan, Christopher, Jason, grand-children his extended family and his many friends.
Please take time out today to post a positive message for Ronnie through his social media pages:

IT was so great seeing Ronnie in 2009 here at Sierra with the reunited ITALs ..Killer vibes that morning-can't believe it was eight years ago. I was fortunate to get some really cool photos of Keith and Ronnie that day-nice memories

But I say... Some Never Even Plant yet want to Reap,
If you run, be careful, try to look before you leap;
Took a little walk from my Vineyard...
Now I'm on my own
Now I'm left alone..
