Day 257 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - Michael Rose - Guess Who's Coming For Dinner
Switching up the vibe a bit for the 255th day... this one is "Guess Who's Coming For Dinner" by Michael Rose. Recorded in 1976, a year before Rose joined up with Black Uhuru, this is one that we can all agree can be labeled a reggae classic. Sure some would say they prefer the version Michael Rose recorded with Duckie Simpson and Puma Jones and released on the 1980 self-titled LP Black Uhuru and eventually as the title track of the revamped version of the same album three years later, but to me I'm diggin' the solo version even more. But being that I've never been a big Black Uhuru fan to begin with I guess that's understandable.
