Day 290 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - Prince Heron - Me Little But Me Talawa
Here comes another tune! This track is by the deejay Prince Heron, a man whose background information I have not been able to uncover, and it is a nice one! Heron began recording in the early 1970s and released a handful of singles all the way up until 1980. His songs "Bawlin'" and "Spanish Town Rock" produced and released by Harry Mudie on his Moodisc label are particularly sweet and really served as a showcase for his chanting style. But instead of going with old personal favorites I'm gonna mix it up by spinning one called "Me Little But Me Talawa," with Dennis Brown at the helm and pressed on the Kim label circa 1978.
