Day 275 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - Early B - History Of Jamaica

Don't ever say that Distinctly Jamaican Sounds hasn't ever provided you with something educational!  Take for instance, today's track by the late great deejay Earlando Arrington Neil AKA Early B; with one listen you get a concise, and fairly accurate I might add, recitation of Jamaica's history in three minutes and twenty seconds!  "History Of Jamaica" originally came off Early B's 1985 album Sunday Dish, produced by Jah Thomas, released on the Sunset label and riding the classic Answer riddim.  It's a huge hunk of history in the midst of a reggae record... who could ask for more?
