REGGAE MUSIC 1968-1975 / VARIOUS Vinyl Record

REGGAE MUSIC 1968-1975 / VARIOUS Vinyl Record
LP version. The prestige, preeminence and, perhaps more importantly, the permanent influence of Jamaica on popular music the world over has been unparalleled and unprecedented. Whether it is Ska, Rocksteady, Roots, Dub, Dancehall, or Basement, all music originating from Jamaica has been termed Reggae. Do you know what Reggae really is? Reggae is the same as Rocksteady but with the organ shuffle. It's the shuffle that kinda carried up the Rocksteady... if you take out that you get rock steady! The organ shuffle kind a make it sound a little faster... The shuffling... plenty people talk but they don't know. Reggae is the organ shuffle... -Bunny Striker Lee. The languid, laid-back Rocksteady beat that reigned supreme in Kingston's dancehalls in the mid-'60s started to speed up in the autumn of 1968 as the faster, brasher Reggae rhythms came to the fore. Many claimed to have originated the new beat... All those singers used to like to listen to one another... anytime you'd voice Slim Smith or Delroy Wilson then you'd find Alton Ellis up at the studio listening to them... every one of them was good in their own right -Bunny Striker Lee. The finer points of what is and is not reggae are invariably lost on all but serious devotees of the music; however, pedantry should never stand in the way of appreciation. Voice of Jamaica respectfully advises you to simply listen and enjoy... Includes tracks by Delroy Wilson, Cornell Campbell, John Holt, Eric Donaldson, Slim Smith, Johnny Clarke, Owen Grey, The Twinkle Brothers, Ronnie Davis, Dennis Brown, Leroy Smart, Linval Thompson, Pat Kelly, and Horace Andy.
