SNWMF alum blaze in UK (Byles, Clarke, Murvin, Linval..)
May 17, 2004 04:35PM

a couple UK shows this past weekend featured Jr Byles, Junior Murvin, Linval Thompson, Cornell Campbell, and Johnny Clarke, who headlined.

early reviews is that Byles is still fighting his health challenges, Murvin was strong, Linval was wicked strong, Cornell was well nice, and Mr. Clarke did in fact deserve his headlining slot.


also this past weekend in the UK was a showcase featuring Dawn Penn and Fred Locks, whose backup singers are names familiar to UK Steppers fans: Trevor Walters and Delroy Pinnock... this set had horns and is reported to have been plenty of nice and enough rough.

Yeah, I think Cornell has the sweetest voice in all of reggae music. His version of My Conversation is the best tune of all time, IMO, today.

"Comin from the hills with the ishence pon mi head,
see one dread...him a smoke a spliff,
say dat de bes!"
