Maxwell Livingston Smith first came to prominence in 1968 when he released his single 'Wet Dream'. The track, with overtly sexual lyrics (although he claims they're about a leaking roof), made him a star in Jamaica, but was banned by the BBC in the UK. Of course, there's nothing like a a good ban to make the public want more. Now Max Romeo has got too many releases to count, he's sung with The Rolling Stones and he helped produce (and starred in) the Michael Butler musical 'Reggae'. The last time he performed in the capital was in 2012 as part of the Jamaica 50 celebrations, alongside reggae legend Jimmy Cliff no less, and this autumn he's back to reaffirm his importance in the roots scene.
