This is as bad as it gets. Even if you are struggling to establish your identity in the music business, surely a blank album cover is preferable to this?
Massive Dread also looks like he’s possibly asleep and someone has put some sunglasses on his head and taken a picture.
“This Is Massive” was a compilation album of Massive Dread’s past hits and favourites and was released on Nyam Up Records. Despite the horrific album cover its got some classic tunes on it that are rarely heard outside of core reggae circles.
Massive Dread was sadly shot dead in 1994, just one year after he helped establish the Trenchtown Reading Centre – a community project designed to improve literacy and learning for the children of Trenchtown.
