    • Al Brown – Proverb (Version)
    • 1. Proverb
    • 2. Proverb (Version)

    Brown was inspired to write the single ‘Proverb’ after spending hours hunched over his bible in Spanish Town as a youth. ‘Proverb’ was one of the few tunes that he recorded that were roots inspired and has become a bit of a collectors tune amongst aficionados. Recorded at Channel One with Ernest Hookim engineering who did an excellent job of squeezing out a thumping horns led tune. The version on the flip side is inspired and has Lloyd Parks on bass and the singer Derek Lara on drums. The Seventh Extension Band was the house band of the Zodiac label. Not a tight knit group band as such but built built around singers Bunny Lara and Derek Lara. ‘Words spoke in haste will all go to waste so be cool’. True thing Al. Comes in hand stamped bag.
