Black Uhuru (Original Line-Up), Charlotte, NC, 1990

Give thanks to the folks at for sharing this rare gem.  Black Uhuru featuring Duckie Simpson, Don Carlos, and Garth Dennis.  The original Waterhouse Black Uhuru line-up live and direct!  This was a tour that featured the original crew in top form performing songs from their incredible reunion album titled NOW.

Make sure to check my feature interview with founding member Garth Dennis where he tells all the sordid details about how the group got its start and how it all fell apart.

    I saw this lineup about a year later Virginia Tech. The venue was the student and it wasn’t ideal. My friend into one of the members in the bathroom, he didn’t know who but I think it was Don Carlos. I think they were very well paid because he told my friend that they wanted to be asked back.

    Now is still a great record. I think it was the first post Sly and Robbie record, but it was so much better then the previous few efforts.
