Day 317 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - Big Youth - Love We A Deal With

Speaking of love... let's get a little love from deejay originator Manley Augustus Buchanan AKA Big Youth and his tune "Love We A Deal With."  This one comes from his album Isaiah First Prophet Of Old released in Jamaica on his own Nichola Delita label in 1978 and internationally on Virgin Front Line the same year.  This is one of my favorite Big Youth albums, right behind Dreadlocks Dread, and this song in particular has been a steady, uplifting, reliable source of musical joy in my life since the first time I heard it.  Dig it!
