Dave and Ansil Collins

Being a big reggae fan, I can tell you with an amount of authority that there's more to Dave and Ansil Collins than their 1971 evergreen hit "Double Barrel". They also had a steady stream of not-so-famous songs that have become reggae standards and have set the the standard. "Monkey Spanner", "Stalag 17" and "Big Tree" being just a few of them.

This duo came from Jamaica along with many other musical gems of the era. Ansil Collins later became a top session keyboard player and Dave Barker performed with many top soul bands.

Did you know that "Double Barrel" was the first recording that Sly Dunbar ever drummed on? No? Well you do now!
