Dennis Alcapone – King Of The Track [1974]

Dennis Alcapone - King Of The Track

If I was going to collect an award (or whatever is happening there) from Bunny Lee I’d probably wear my shiny silver trousers too. In the early 1970s, Dennis Alcapone, alongside U-Roy and Big Youth, was one of the biggest DJs in Jamaica and totally ruled the dancehalls and charts.

Alcapone is looking way too cool on what is otherwise a pretty plain album cover. You can only wonder what this sleeve would have looked like if it was in colour, it would probably have come with a ‘sensory overload’ warning sticker placed over those trousers. There is enough data in this photo for a team of forensic tailors to study for years and still not come up with a solution to replicate those trousers in this day and age.

The album is pretty good too and collects together many of Dennis Alcapone’s hits from 1974. (Note: This album was also released again in 1995 under the name: “Musical Liquidator”)
