Barrington Levy - Here I Come (Live, 1984) (Video Review)

BARRINGTON LEVY - HERE I COME (LIVE, 1984)
Dubroom (DUB) Reggae Video Review




WWW, November 2007 - Backed by Aswad's very own Drummie Zeb, Barrington Levy performs one of his many hits during the days wherein Rub a Dub style was at it's heights.

Historically Rub a Dub can be placed between the digital Sleng-Teng riddim that changed Reggae Music during the mid 1980's and the Toasters ("Reggae Rappers") who chanted on heavily mixed Rockers DUB in the 1970's.

It was the predominant style within Jamaican Reggae during the early to mid 1980's and with Channel One Studios releasing one hit after the other played by the Roots Radics, vocalist Barrington Levy became one of the most popular singers during the time.

This video captures a young Barrington in the year of George Orwell's famous novel performing live with Aswad's Drummer and the rest of a crucial Reggae band.
