5. “Lion Heart”

Silk began his career as a deejay, chatting on soundsystems under the name “Little Bimbo” (And, later, simply just Bimbo) as a kid. It wasn’t until 1989 that ska legend/producer Derrick Morgan, who was overseeing Silk’s recording at the time, convinced him to sing. Though made later in his career, in 1993, this tune, recorded with Donovan Germain for the Penthouse label, showcases Silk’s strong points in both disciplines.
