Judge Dread

Judge Dread (or Alex Hughes, which was his real name) was a ska/reggae performer from the UK. He started playing around the beginning of the 1970's. His songs were funny although considered ''rude'' by some snobbish, stuck-up people. I can't agree with them, for me he just had a good sense of humor. I like his music a lot, and that's the main reason I've decided to upload it. I know that he's not well known as other ska/reggae artists like i.e. Desmond Dekker, but I hope this post will correct that. Judge Dread sadly died of a heart attack in 1998. I recommend that you go and read an article about Judge Dread on Wikipedia cos it gives much more details about him than I have given you here cos the man had an interesting life story worth checking out. Cheers to Judge Dread!!!
