Happy TUNEBACK TUESDAY!! It’s snowing!!!! It looks like we’re going to get a lot of snow today… so I’m tuning it back to “Informer” by Canadian reggae musician, Snow.
ORIGINAL RELEASE DATE: January 2, 1993
TRIVIA: In 1992, while on vacation in Queens, New York, Snow met MC Shan, and the pair produced a four-song demo. MC Shan then introduced Snow to producer–managers Steve Salem and David Eng, who signed him to their Motor Jam Records company, and licensed the music to East West Records. Shortly thereafter, Snow began serving an eight-month sentence in Toronto for assault. “Informer” began getting radio and MuchMusic airplay while he was incarcerated.
See you next Tuesday!!
