1) I'm Coming Home Tonight
2) Sitting & Watching
3) Westbound Train.
Thanks to so many uninspired selectors, here are a few i can now do without:
1)to the foundation
2) promised land
3)here i come
Not too keen on his recuts of rocksteady/early reggae classics, not bad at all, but second-rate when compared to the originals.

it does really sit with me that songs not written by Dennis Brown can be nominated as his best......not when he wrote so many amazing songs.....

which is one of the reasons I was wondering about Life Goes In Circles...

So many killer D. Brown tunes. I've always loved Bloody City.

Hard to point out only one, but it would be "Lightning and thunder ( aka Words of the father)" for me.

Someone mentioned “No More Walls” but some other more modern killers are:
The Exit
Raggamuffin (with G.I.)
Let Off Supm (with G.I.)

I also like his version of Rainbow Country on the Saxon label (whoops, another cover!)

His cover of Natural Mystic is great, on Shocking Vibes 7 inch. Does anyone know if a dub exists to this, or any other cuts? Bless
