WWW, November 2008 - Reggae is definitely "Big In Japan" and it has been so for quite a while now, as this 1980's performance by Rub a Dub singer Tenor Saw shows.

The video opens with Tenor Saw saying some nice things to the public, after which we go straight into the performance of two tracks, of which the second one ("No Work On Sunday") is one of the best known songs by the Rub a Dub singer.

The video was shot somewhere in the 1980's, when Reggae Times were definitely changing.

Together with singers like Barrington Levy, Cocoa Tea and others, Tenor Saw was part of a new generation of singers after Rockers Music had slowly changed into what we now call early Dancehall or Rub a Dub.
