Flour Power question

Postby j j » Wed Aug 13, 2014 8:38 am

Is the song in the link actually Naggo Morris? Is his voice the main vocal?

also can anyone name some more songs on this subject (the batch of poison flour got into the food chain in Jamaica in the early (?) 70's.

thanks

JJ i can understand why yu question it , the voice on the link tune doesnt sound like nagga tbh, when yu compare to say for example

Su Su Pan Rasta

maybe wrong tho,
With all this negativity that is now talking place around us both here and abroad ...mankind has now developed a tottaly lack of respect both for himself and his fellowman.The time is now nigh for one to take a closer look within himself...

Dub Specialist - yes I seem to recall reading years ago that it wasn't Naggo at all but maybe someone like Trinity ? Wish I could remember who it was.

I'll have to look up the details of 'the' poison flour event, must of been fairly big news to get that many songs sung about it?

cheers
