WWW, January 2008 - Chicago-based Algoriddim Radio celebrates the works of one of Rub a Dub Music's Icons with a special Version Excursion in a fine style.

When Barrington Levy started singing as a young teenager in the late 1970's, he quickly became one of the Icons of Rub a Dub music. His tune "Under Mi Sensi" became somewhat of a smoker's anthem, popular until this very day in 2008.

Reasons enough for Algoriddim Radio to livicate a whole show on this remarkable vocalist. Reggae Radio in a fine style, with a minimum of chatter and a maximum of spinning platter as they say.

The DJ plays well over 55 different titles in one hour and twenty minutes, as leads us from one riddim into the next. We'll hear the excessive DUB mixing of the Scientist and a whole host of Reggae DJ's as well and get a pretty good picture of Barrington's vocal work.

And please, don't be disappointed when you listen to the first minutes of this podcast. At first, you will hear someone talking about something, followed by a rather large number of ultra-short Reggae clips. This is just the introduction: the fun starts around five minutes into the file.
