Artist & tune

  • Alpheus - Can't Deal With This / Version
Overall rating : (1 to 5 stars)   
Born and raised by Jamaican parents in London, England, Alpheus became active in the London reggae scene, often singing with local sound systems including Trenchtone Rockers and Kenyatta. After migrating to the United States het teamed up with legendary producer Coxsone Dodd with whom he recorded the excellent album 'Quality Time'. Here we have a tune coming from Sugar Minott's 'Black Roots' camp entitled Can't Deal With This. Alpheus' rich and warm vocal delivery perfectly suits the classic Studio One riddim 'Stranger In Love' perfectly and the theme is 'a love lost'. The instrumental version is included as well.
