Prezident Brown - Health And Strength
Prezident Brown's style of deejaying provides a direct link back to Briggy and even Dennis Alcapone and Big Youth - in fact this set reminds me a lot of Big Youth's 'Isiah First Prophet Of Old' album for Front Line back in 1978. Its got a real message - and the rhythms are full. The rhythms are not really dancehall - but they are very good roots rhythms. Its a real alternative to what is going on to today in the world of deejaying - where basically nothing is going on!! Well this is happening - and its important. Recorded and mixed at the Prez's studio in Ocho Rios and released on his own label its another very good step for the man. Included are some video clips as well. Which is another nice touch. The Prez as been very consistent over the years and this set is right up there - hopefully this is just the first of many self productions from the man.
