Any of you watch the new HBO series “Winning Time“? It chronicles the professional and personal lives of the 1980s Los Angeles Lakers Basketball team, both on and off the court. There are a few familiar faces in the series, and some of your favourite music too, but for their 3rd episode called “The Best Is Yet To Come“, a Reggae classic was featured.
Reggae Artist Freddie McGregor’s 1979 classic, “Bobby Babylon” was featured in the latest episode of “Winning Time”. Produced by Sir Coxsone Dodd for Studio One, “Bobby Babylon” was a hit for Freddie McGregor, and he along with the single lead to the resurgence of the Record Label in the early 1980s. The inclusion of “Bobby Babylon” in the series fits well with the 80s theme as the series focuses on the “Showtime Lakers“. “Winning Time” is now available for viewing every Sunday on HBO.
