Description

The golden age of mento singles came to a close at the end of the 1950s. Never again would Jamaica see such an abundance of creative, excellent mento recordings. But in no way did mento stop being recorded, nor did it completely change into the mento-reggae style. Though more sporadically, rural mento recording continued to be released in the 1960s and enjoyed a resurgence in the late 1970s that continued to gain steam up to the present day. These are some standout examples of great rural mento from the 1960s and later.
