Wolves & Leopards, Here I Come, To The Foundation and Money in My Pocket are all great tunes but have been played to death so we get tired of them and forget just how good they are. I get into trouble for critisising some new artists but it's hard to listen to Gytian when you grew up listening to artists like Dennis Brown.

I definitely hear you RG.

One not mentioned yet, "Give a helping hand oh Jah". Any Dennis and niney you can't go wrong with. In my humble opinion his best works were done in conjunction with niney, with Joe Gibbs a close second. Greatest reggae singer of all time.

Money in my Pocket and Equal Rights are tunes that I have always loved. To be honest I wasn't overly impressed with Dennis Brown beyond a couple of tunes but have really warmed to him in the last year or so. I love To the Foundation on Hawkeye though I like the cuts Ital Dokta mentions as well.
I just recently picked up a 7" of the 1972 Money In My Pocket which is interesting as well.

still loads not mentioned yet :

Tribulation
Cassandra
No More Will I Roam
The Half
Man Next Door

Penny Reel's book 'Deep Down With Dennis Brown' gives a great flavour of a period in the 70s when you could hardly move for new D Brown releases.

One of my favourites is Deliverance will come, which I don't think has been mentioned yet.

Yes Ranchie, the original to "In His Own Way" is brilliant. I have the later version but the original is much better imo.

Changing Times is a deep tune and is obviously about his transition to Rastafari:

"We'll stop fussing and fighting among ourselves
Cause now we have seen the light
Nothing to worry about - nothing at all
Cause now the change is here"
