Craft cans and classic reggae 2

Winston Francis is one of the finest voices in reggae, and beside his voice he’s got two other great things going for him: He recorded with Coxsonne Dodd in his early days, took a break for a few decades, and now is recording with the finest reggae producer around today, Prince Fatty.

Flying Dog Brewery has just as many advantages; it started in the craft beer mecca of Colorado, got so popular they had to add a second brewery on the East Coast, and they have Ralph Steadman artwork on the can. The beer’s pretty damn good too.

This is the lead track from Winston’s 1969 Debut LP Mr. Fix It:

MP3: Winston Francis- Same Old Song

Here’s a sampling of new (old) material he’s apparently releasing with Prince Fatty:
