Day 145 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - Prince Far I - Throw Away Your Gun
Speaking of Prince Far I... we're gonna stay on the same badass riddim as yesterday's tune for the 144th track in the 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge and it is an absolute killer! Prince Far I, born Michael James Williams in Kingston, was the Voice of Thunder. His authoritatively booming "Voice of God" delivery commands your respect and when meshed with this sinister, bass-heavy Roots Radics rhythm, it's about as tuff as you can get. Originally a single on Far I's Cry Tuff label, "Throw Away Your Gun" was released in 1980 on the album Showcase In A Suitcase. To me this is Prince Far I at his absolute best!
