MONTEGO BAY, St James — Veteran dancehall crooner Barrington Levy's performance inside the Catherine Hall Entertainment Complex this morning brought back vivid memories of the original dancehall days of the 1980s, as Sumfest's Reggae Night winds down.

The seasoned reggae ambassador went down memory lane with songs like Too experienced, Living Dangerously, Prison Oval Rock, 21 Girls Salute, Murderer, Broader than Broadway, Black, Black Roses and more.

At one point he was accompanied on stage by King of the Dancehall, Beenie Man then on another occasion by rapper, Shine Head.

The 'No Put it Deh' singer made way for another vintage dancehall act, Super Cat.
