Mutabaruka - Whey mi belang // Horsemouth - Far beyond

Postby ice » Sun Sep 16, 2018 8:52 am

Muta's "Whey mi belang" has always been one of my favourite tracks of his, way back from when I bought the album in the early 80s

it wasn't until a few weeks ago that I discovered a similiar track by Leroy "Horsemouth" Wallace

These "I come ya from the east...but in the east, there is no negroe" lyrics are part of both songs...are they quoted from the bible? Or from Marcus Garvey? And who recorded his version first, anyone know?

thanks

Whey mi belang was released 1983, Far beyond much earlier (I would guess early-mid seventies) on Bongoman 7"..
