Communiqué de presse VP records :
(VP RECORDS/17 NORTH PARADE, NEW YORK) – The legend of Dennis Brown lives on as a three-disc compilation of his hit singles, aptly titled The Crown Prince of Reggae - Singles (1972-1985), will be reissued by 17 North Parade, a VP Records imprint, on November 16, 2010.

Selected as one of National Public Radio’s ‘50 Great Voices’ in 2010, Brown is the archetype of reggae vocalists and his unique, soulful sound has earned him legions of fans during his lifetime, including Bob Marley, who rated Brown as his favorite singer. Even with his premature passing in July 1997 at age 42, Brown’s music continues to live on in the dancehalls and on radio today.

This collection of Dennis Brown hits from 1972 to 1985 will give Brown buffs a broader view of the legend than any previous compilations of his work. Featuring anthems such as “Revolution” and “Promised Land” to lesser-known but no less compelling works like “Satisfaction Feeling” and the gritty musical ultimatum “Praise Without Raise,” this playlist is bound to satisfy long-time enthusiasts as well as new seekers of the iconic musician.

The bonus DVD sees Dennis Brown live in concert, backed by Lloyd Parks and We the People Band, in a 1979 performance m at the Montreux Jazz Festival - the best-known music festival in Switzerland and one of the most prestigious in Europe. It also includes seven additional hits that are not included on the audio discs.
