OLDIES SUNDAY: @DennisAlCapone – Teach The Children (Teacher Teacher) (1971)

Today’s Oldies Sunday selection comes from Reggae DJ and producer, Dennis AlCapone. Titled “Teach The Children (Teacher Teacher)” and produced by Duke Reid in 1971, AlCapone deejays about the activities that happen in the classroom with teachers and students. He spoke on children learning how to spell, speak foreign languages and show and tell along with students alerting teachers by saying “Teacher Teacher!“.

Teach The Children” became a big hit for Dennis AlCapone in Jamaica and was a entry in “Guns Don’t Argue“, his 2nd album in 1971. Dennis went on to release over 100 singles and produce songs for the likes of Dennis Brown and Delroy Wilson. His output lessened in the late 70s to the mid 80s due to migration and the passing of his mother but he made a few comebacks between the late 80s and late 90s. He still does live performances all over the world and has been an influence to many artists including I-Roy, Dillinger, and many sing-jays. “Teach The Children” can be heard as the theme song to Jamaican radio station RJR’sTeachers’ Time” on sunday evenings.

Thank You Dennis AlCapone for this classic song.
