I just couldn't take his singing.

I have never been particularly impressed by Keith at all.

Good point. You see the tiger is much more a jungle animal, than a lion is.
Speaking of Tiger, never have I listened to Tiger nor to Papa San or others from mid 80s dancehall.

I think most people know the Dancehall Tiger but who was this earlier Tiger?: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j_e_ORawkjE

Papa San was quite simply a genius with more lyrics than any DJ I've ever heard. The only problem is that his long lyrics and machine gun style delivery appeared to put the audience off on occasion.

You have to love Tiger the younger's unique style. The Works and A So Mi Look are master pieces in that category. :)

He always sounded like a crackhead inhaling helium to me. I saw him once at reggae sunsplash and underwhelmed would be an understatement. and that was before his motorcycle crash (who could have predicted that?)

Papa San's brother, Dirtsman, was murdered in 1993.
Papa San is Christian and does gospel music now.

I hated all that hysteria surrounding Tiger at the time. Looks like Capleton has taken up the reigns with all that jumping about and screeching in his live performances.

No, not everyone!

You mean you dislike sirens in your dub?
Monotonous rhythms too? OK.

...and dodgy sound quality, like the dubs were recorded in a bath tub.
