.The new generations are often introduced to reggae through radio airplay.
Having travelled the Caribbean many times, I got my share of disapointement with what
was being played on FM radio. The music selection, too often, contains contemporary Top 40 reggae and dancehall acts
signed on one or two record labels. The original form of reggae is mostly absent from Deejays playlist.
Don't get me wrong, I enjoy some of the contemporary artists, but my main interest goes for the 70's music.
Being a reggae fan for the past 17 years, I feel the need to communicate my love for this music.
I'm currently working on a list of what I consider being my Top 500 reggae songs,
which I will eventually share on this page.
In the mean time, if you feel like exploring roots music from the 70's, what many fans consider
being the golden age of reggae, here are a few links:
• Top 25 Roots Reggae Albums of All Time (by A. Watkins)
• Best Blood & Fire Reggae Reissues (by Kaysixone)
• Brilliant, Highly Recommended Roots Reggae (by Sai Magnum)
And you can't go wrong with any compilations from the label Pressure Sounds.
Felt like sharing a reggae party that I've done in Jantuary 2013.
