- "Foul Play!" a.k.a. "Foul Play" is a 1981 album by reggae singer Dennis Brown, the first of three albums to be released as part of his international record deal with A&M. The album features two tracks which have been described as "two of the greatest roots cuts in major label history", in "The Existence of Jah" and "The World is Troubled". The album was reissued on the Joe Gibbs label as a double-set with its follow-up, Love Has Found Its Way, and with both of the other A&M albums on the double-CD set The Complete A&M Years. The album mixed roots reggae tracks and sociopolitical themes with love songs such as "If I Had The World", "Your Man", and a new version of one of his early hits, "If I Follow My Heart". Klive Walker, in his book Dubwise: Reasoning from the Reggae Underground suggested that the lyric of "If I Had the World" suggests that Brown was already using cocaine at the time that the album was recorded.
