Day 126 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - Ken Boothe - Now I Know

Lightening up the mood with a heartbreaking love song by the great Ken Boothe!  "Now I Know" featuring the unmistakably trademark guitar of Hux Brown that clearly signifies a Leslie Kong Beverley's production, was recorded in 1971 and released as a 7" on their namesake label.  Like yesterday's track, this baby is so rife with harmonies you'll think you're listening to the Temptations!  For those who don't know... and if you don't know you've obviously been whiling away your time in an underground bunker for the last 50 years, Ken Boothe is one of the living legends of Jamaican music!  Mr. Boothe has recorded in all eras; from ska in the early 60s straight through until now.  Maximum respect Ken Boothe!  Dig this!
