No More Love on The Run

The most recent Frank 151 quarterly was a tribute to all things I & I. I'm glad it was because if I wouldn't have picked it up I never would have known that Billy Ocean is a "Rasta".

In the article Billy states that "Rasta wasn't something that was intentional, it just happened because I used to Jeri curl my hair and then one day I just stopped and it went locks. But Bob Marley's influence was clearly in there". Ok, whatever you say Bill.

In addition to The Queen here's a few MJ reggae covers from around the same time as the William Ocean heyday.
