Day 155 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - Anthony Johnson - Africa
Happy Sunday! Time for the 154th tune in the 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge! Keeping it short and sweet today... this one is by Anthony Johnson, produced by Linval Thompson and originally released on his Strong Like Sampson label in 1979... and recently re-released on the Hot Milk. Born in Kingston, Anthony Johnson got his start singing with Irving Ellis (Alton Ellis' younger brother) and his steel band which performed at local hotels in Montego Bay. When he moved back to Kingston he recorded for Bunny Lee, Channel One and of course Linval Thompson... this is a good one!
