Song for Dennis Brown (3:57)

Cover of The Sunset Tree

From The Sunset Tree and 17 other releases

The song is about one of Jamaica’s best singers. Dennis Brown was called “the Crown Prince of Reggae” by Bob Marley, a title he richly deserved. After returning to Kingston, Jamaica, on the evening of June 30, 1999, he was rushed to Kingston’s University Hospital, suffering from cardiac arrest. Brown died the next day, and the official cause of his death was a collapsed lung, although his cocaine habit was considered a contributing factor.
