Barrington Levy Robin Hood on LP

One of the great success stories of the '80s, Barrington Levy arrived on the dancehall scene and swiftly remodeled it in his own image. Although numerous DJs and vocalists would rise and fall during this decade, Levy was one of the few with staying power, and he continued releasing massive hits well into the '90s.

1980's Robin Hood, with the unbeatable studio grouping of producer Henry 'Junjo' Lawes and backing band The Roots Radics, merely affirmed what everyone in Jamaica already knew: That Levy was now the biggest star on the island, with a talent that was unmatched. Or more accurately, he was king of the singers, because ruling beside him was DJ Yellowman, another one of Lawes' discoveries.

Robin Hood was as big as its predecessor and was beginning to have an impact in Britain as well, where both it and Englishman (1979) had been released by the Greensleeves label. Not surprisingly, both albums' heavy rhythms would provide the building blocks for the Scientist V Prince Jammy dub clash album.
