Beat18#5-6DBrownLegacyP67In The Beat magazine’s tribute to Dennis Brown, who died July 1, 1999, columnist and reggae discographer Michael Turner examines the Jamaican singer’s legacy through collected personal memories and favorite songs from dozens of correspondents. Michael comments, “As I suspected, the group most fondly recalled Dennis Brown’s music of the ‘70s; in fact no songs selected were recorded after 1984.”

“Best of The Beat” presents the feature article, “Dennis Brown’s Musical Legacy,” which will serve as a great introduction for those new to Brown’s massive repertoire, and gratify his many devoted fans. The 24 titles listed here represent a curated “greatest hits” playlist, with the tracks, “Here I Come” (AKA “Love and Hate”), “Sitting and Watching,” and “Wolves and Leopards” garnering the most support.
