AN ATTEMPT TO MEET THE PM
The author tries, heroically, to get in contact with Jamaicas then prime minister Michael Manley in order to confront him with some unpleasant truths about the society he is on top of. She brings with her a ministerial paper from the Norwegian foreign office, and is duly sent from one governmental building to another. However, she is finally and terminally stopped outside the Prime Minister’s office by two policemen who want to know why there is an image of Haile Selassie on her t-shirt. At another governmental office, she is asked to write down her questions to the PM. As a consequence, needless to say, the interview never takes place.
Errol Dunkley: A little way different, Disco-45; played here is the dub-version on the flip-side. Arawak 1978. Produced by Dennis Bovell (aka Dennis Matumbi at the time).
Errol Dunkley is a ”typical” Jamaican reggae artist whos career spreads from teen-ager debut more or less to this day and a handful great hits in a stream of decent productions. This time, however, we picked the flip-side for its sweet, sweet sound.
