Re: Reggae

its more about the label than the artist- the studio and the studio band has far more 2 do with whether its -roots- or not
Studio 1 - jamaican
Trojan - british
Duke Reid - jamaican
Black Ark - jamaican
Tuff Gong - jamaican
and many many micro studios in the caribbeanm

reggae/dancehall started in jamaica- (ska was the british interpretation) - reggae wasnt popular outside jamaica until britain got hold of it- and it wasnt popular in the US until a hit by desmond dekker -isrealites- and then popularized by jimmy cliff in his cult classic    -harder they come- at that point in time the doors were open for a new style of reggae -roots- founded and perfected by the late great Bob Marley- (who wuz found by Lee Perry and Black Ark) the rest is history.... loads of amazing music slipped under our noses though and most of it hasnt surfaced until recent new labels like

Blood and Fire
Island
Mango
Virgin
Ras
Rhino
Lagoon
Pressure sounds
etc...
and most of them are compilations from singles- if u want the goods u hafta search out vinyl- horrible pressings from cheap equipment and studios in the caribbean but amazing music that never made it big....

its believed that rap and dj style (stylee) of music was started by dancehalls in jamaica where the dj wud spin b sides of singles -(studio instumentals that an artist wud lay down lyrics 2)- and then freestyle his own comments over
i.e
I roy
U roy
and many many others but i wuz always looking for the originals and wasnt into dj
etc etc....

15+ year music collector- mainly reggae- 
over 100+ jimi hendrix albums/bootlegs/imports-

a friend from amsterdam who had 10s of 1000s of vinyl records (all reggae) openned the door for me in SB- sum of his albums were priceless singles by Bob Marley -he wuz called upon to help with the JAD label which are the new compilation albums with all Marleys early singles

nowadays ive turned most all my music n2 mp3's and sold off the cds on amazon to pay for my business and my family-

i still have way 2 much vinyl tho that is in storage and never gets played anymore

p.s
i started BBoarding in 83 and collecting/sharing music was a major part of my surfing

and remeber.... the spirit of Jah (Jahovia/Jahova) wuz started in Christianity- the only music teachers- instruments- lessons- came from early missionaries in jamaica- kids flocked to the Word thru learning music- and most of the greatest artist/songs came out of influences and sang about thru the book of God- the reason Rastafarianism didn't last -i believe- was it wuz a blasphemous corruption of what was the truth - Jah light is Gods spirit in us thru Christ -not mans and not pot and I went thru many trials to finally figure that out!

end of lesson... go about ur day now

Re: Reggae

huge reggae fan. sickest party I ever went to was on the beach in Malibu at 2:00 in the afternoon behind someone's house and endless kegs of beer and a live reggae band playing into the very late afternoon. I still think of that day when I hear reggae on a sunny weekend afternoon.
