One of my most favorite songs from Ken Boothe, is a song called “Silver Words,” and it was released in 1976. The song was originally written and performed by Sixto Diaz Rodriguez (or better known as simply Rodriquez) in 1971. Rodriquez music was extremely influential in South Africa, and it’s no surprise that a number of reggae artists loved Rodriquez work so much that they would make interpretations of their own. However, in my opinion, Ken did it the best tho. It’s a beautiful love song about a simple and uncomplicated man, who is in essence appreciative that he has found a girl who is interested in him. The words are so beautiful, and speaks of pure love and gratitude, without any set of conditions. Another beautiful favorite of mine is, “Everything I own,” which was originally written and performed by a group called “Bread” in 1972, and both happen to also be two of my many favorite songs.
