Dennis Brown “Concrete Castle King” Dubplate

Check the dubplate for Dennis Brown’s “Concrete Castle King,” a very underrated tune from his VISIONS album.

While this tune is often credited to Brown, it was actually written by guitarist Lloyd ‘Gitsy’ Willis and originally recorded at the Black Ark Studio in 1975 with Saxophonist Dean Fraser on vocals, bassist Aston ‘Family Man’ Barrett, drummer Robert Stevenson, with Willis on guitar and Calvin ‘Bubbles’ Cameron on trombone.  It was first issued in 1975 as a 7″ single on the Black Explosion label.

Lee “Scratch” Perry would later resurrect the rhythm on “Dread Lion.”  “Concrete Castle King” was also covered by Junior Reid and issued on a Tamoki Wambesi 7″ in 1983.
