I owe a lot of my reggae experience to a guy I worked with, back in high school, at a used record shop. He started carting me along to tons of great shows, mostly at DC’s Kilimanjaro, as soon as I showed an inkling of interest. A couple of the most unusual – and most memorable – sessions occurred down the hill from Kilimanjaro’s roost in Adams Morgan, at a tiny and now long defunct joint called Saba Club. Both Augustus Pablo and Linton Kwesi Johnson made rare stateside appearances there in the early-mid 80’s, playing to dismayingly tiny audiences. This is a classic old-school video, showcasing LKJ’s dee-jay poet stylings, of Di Great Insohreckshan, inspired by the Brixton riots of 1981.
