1988. Nez B & DV8. May 9th. Fill­more West

I was recent­ly giv­en this CD that I didn’t know exist­ed. It’s of the won­der­ful Reg­gae singer “Nez B” (Ernesto Brown) and the band DV8 per­form­ing “One More Inno­cent” at the Fill­more West, in San Fran­cis­co.
“One More Inno­cent” was the song I wrote with Jean­nette that “Star­ship” felt was too con­tro­ver­sial for the “Knee Deep In The Hoopla” album and the bands new pop direc­tion. I left the band right after.
Nez B & DV8’s ver­sion is fan­tas­tic. I had record­ed the song on my “Watch­fire” album which includ­ed musi­cians like, Jer­ry Gar­cia, Mick­ey Hart, and Baba Olatun­ji and his African Drum­mers.
I sang (after a fash­ion) the song as a duet with Hol­ly Near. — with Jean­nette L Sears.
