U-Roy – Version of Wisdom
Virgin Records 1990

Last week, february 17, the world has lost another great artist.
Various blogs have posted his records, check Holland Tunnel Dive
for instance. I choose for this 1990 compilation on Virgin Records.
It contains some of the most delightful of his songs. Many of these
were written by U-Roy and Duke Reid. Songs #’s 1,4,6,7,14,15 and 16
by John Holt. Let’s honour Ewart Beckford alias U-Roy forever ..
(thank you Sylvester)

De afgelopen week, op 17 februari, verloor de wereld een van zijn
meest geweldige reggae artiesten. Diverse blogs postten zijn platen.
Ga bijvoorbeeld eens naar Holland Tunnel Dive om er enkele te vinden.
Ik koos voor deze compilatie op cd, uit 1990, van Virgin Records. Hij bevat
een zwik van zijn heerlijkste songs. Veel werden geschreven door U-Roy
en Duke Reid. De #’s 1,4,6,7,14,15 en 16 door John Holt. Laten we Ewart
Beckford alias U-Roy voor altijd eren door zijn muziek te draaien ..
