Description

For many reggae fans, especially those outside of Jamaica, roots is the only reggae that matters. From the early 1970s through the first half of the 1980s, roots reggae dominated in Jamaica until dancehall rose up to knock it from the hill. Here’s a variety of great roots reggae songs, presented chronologically and representing the full spectrum of the style’s sounds and concerns, from artists who do not have their own chapters in this book. Singers and vocal groups – the famous and the not; those who recorded roots exclusively and those who had broader résumés; those who aimed at international audiences or strictly a yard – are all represented. Each of these fine songs is readily available on CD unless otherwise noted
