Early B - Visit Of King Selassie (Video Review)

Dubroom (DUB) Reggae Video Review

WWW, December 2007 - Almost 20 years after the event, Early B -dressed up like Haile Selassie- gives an impressive musical report of the Emperor's visit to Jamaica.

The year is 1985, and Early B is about to give a massive performance in Jamaica. Backed up by a crucial band playing the "Pass The Kutchie" Riddim, the Rub a Dub MC enters stage dressed up like Haile Selassie when he visited Jamaica back in 1966 and starts to talk about it.

Musically, that is!

In retro-spective, it is kind of clear how the musical developments in Jamaica were leading from the more chilled-out Rub a Dub beats towards what we now know as Ragga or Dancehall. The band plays and stops, but doesn't quite get there were they would be a few years later.
