Frankie Paul - African Princess (Live at Japansplash 1986, Video Review)

Dubroom (DUB) Reggae Video Review

WWW, November 2007 - Together with names like Barrington Levy, Frankie Paul was one of the leading Rub a Dub or early Dancehall singers during the 1980's.

In the time of this performance, Rub a Dub had turned to become Ragga or Dancehall. In the decade before, the Soul Syndicate had established their name as one of the leading Jamaican Studio and Session bands of the time, too.

Japansplash 1986 was the name and location of the performance recorded in this video.

Dressed in a suit and tie, Frankie Paul performs together with this tight band and he does it in a magnificent way. His voice is obviously and impressively indistinguishable from that of his -many- recordings.
