 Barrington Levy
Barrington Levy was one of the first singers to challenge the dominance of DJs in 80s dancehall reggae, although his earliest recording, under the name of the Mighty Multitude ("My Black Girl" in 1977), predated that era.
Levy did not sound like anyone else: he perhaps revealed some of Jacob Miller's style, and a little of Bob Andy's influence, but his phrasing evoked the raw energy of the dancehalls.
Levy travelled between Jamaica, London and New York, and although he lost momentum at the end of the 80s, he still had all the talent of his peak period, as Love The Life You Live made clear.

 Review - Barrington Levy : Bounty Hunter   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
Barrington Levy (born 1964, Kingston JA) had been part of a group called the Mighty Multitudes and made a couple of singles that didn't sell particularly well before he teamed up with producers Henry "Junjo" Lawes and New York-baed Hyman "Jah Life" Wright.
This album, with its raw riddims by the Roots Radics, was the template for the whole genre of dancehall vocalizing.
The awesome "Bounty Hunter" is one of Levy's biggest hits showing how Levy turns a simple lyric into something much more through his sheer confident vocal.

His debut, Bounty Hunter, sold well and a string of singles consolidated his position: "Robber Man", "Black Rose", "Like A Soldier", the massive hits "Money Move" and "Shine Eye Gal", and the stunning "Prison Oval Rock", and a series of albums were released between 1982 and 1985 to capitalize on his success.
He followed it with "Here I Come", which was a hit in the soul clubs and scraped the UK charts when licensed by London Records, who also issued an album of the same title.

Perhaps well known for his skills with the microphone, Levy also knows how to get the kind of feedback from the crowd necessary to keep the entire house jumping all night.
Unfortunately, the crowd was not as responsive as he thought necessary in order to finish the song a few times and so would have to stop the momentum to get everyone together again.
Simply by being patient and polite, and having a "legitimate" story (unlike the extremely stoned guy wandering around mumbling to himself, and trying to sneak backstage every chance he got), I was rewarded by having one of the inside guards agree to look for my contact.
