Roots reggae star Barry Brown has a readily identifiable vocal style that has long made him among the most preferred of many roots reggae fans. Drawing largely from the blueprint provided by Horace Andy, but changing that into something all his own through a unique form of vocal phrasing, interspersed with ad-hoc slurs, Brown was initially discovered through the many amateur talent contests that fringed his west Kingston ghetto neighbourhood during the early 1970s; he was also making an impact at the same time by performing live on local sound systems. The exceptionally rare album I’m Still Waiting was released in 1983 by Rocktone International, a spin-off of Sugar’s Black Roots outfit, based in Queens, New York, with a further branch in Toronto (which reportedly closed just prior to the album’s release).
