In the early ’70s, Sly Dunbar was working as a studio musician in his hometown of Kingston, Jamaica, where he’d already drummed for Lee Perry and played on an Upsetters track. When he met Robbie Shakespeare, one of Kingston’s most sought-after bass players, the two clicked. Over the duo’s multi-decade partnership, Sly and Robbie have worked with Peter Tosh, Grace Jones, Gregory Isaacs, Joe Cocker, Joan Armatrading, and many more. Remember that Chaka Demus and Pliers song “Murder She Wrote?” That’s a Sly and Robbie sample.
