Sad enough I wasn’t able to attend last Saturdays concert by Clinton Fearon who I adore and who’s work speaks volumes of his intellect on this road of life. Clinton Fearon, who’s career spans an impressive five decades, currently tops my list of Reggae legends to witness live on stage after seeing Burning Spear last August giving fans more than they could have hoped for in a sold-out Brixton O2 Academy.
From what I have been told, Clinton put together a fantastic show with hits from throughout his longstanding oeuvre backed by his faithful Boogie Brown Band. I couldn’t keep a long face thinking about what I missed out on as my concert buddy managed to get a copy of Goodness for me signed by the man himself!
A perfect moment to reintroduce a short review I wrote some time ago about two of my favorite records by Clinton Fearon. Enjoy.
