The day is here! The Underrated Treasures Blogfest is being hosted by Alex Cavanaugh, Tell the world about a little-known band or artist, book, movie or TV show.
As to my underrated treasure - Shinehead is an artist who was somewhat popular in the 80's. He's Jamaican by birth, but has lived in the United States for most of his life. He's quite talented—raps, sings (very well) and deejays, but never made it big over the duration of his career. Not sure what he's doing with himself now, but here are a couple of my favourites from him.

Have fun on the hop and do have a look in the side bar. My tour and hop are mighty lonely!
