'Dead Men Don't Smoke Marijuana' is the last album by the beloved singer/songwriter S.E Rogie. A collection of fingerpicked acoustic guitar tunes rooted in the palm wine style of Sierre Leone, Rogie's birthplace, and tinged with gospel, reggae, country and blues, it was released to acclaim in 1994 and has become an indisputable classic. No wonder: to listen to this wryly-titled recording is to soothe the soul. To be transported to a gentle, unhurried place where songs called things like 'Jaimgba Tutu (The Joy of Success)' and 'Nyalomei Luange (Love Me My Love)' tell life lessons in Krio and English over the sweetest of melodies, in a silky baritone sung from the heart. Rogie's nearly fifty-year career was sprinkled with highlights. But it is this album, his swansong - he passed away a few weeks after its release - which endures. Ageing like a fine wine, indeed.
