This show is dedicated to my friend and musical mentor...the legendary KING YELLOWMAN. Born Winston Foster, he endured many hardships while growing up as an albino even being orphaned as an infant. He became a superstar in the wake of the untimely death of Bob Marley. He helped to bring dancehall reggae to the world. Very charismatic and a great enetertainer, Yellow's musical output was staggering. Here is a 76 minute showcase of some of my favorite Yellowman tunes. Ladies and gentlemen I present the ORIGINAL KING OF THE DANCEHALL.....YELLOWMAN!!!
