View Full Version : Seventies Reggae
Anyone a fan of the old original reggae songs from the seventies?
Still absolutely adore reggae, just wondered if anyone else shares a passion for this type of music. (Even got hubby to take me to Jamaica last Year so I could hear it all first hand with the atmosphere, and a Rum Punch LOL)
I rememeber it suddenly became really uncool once Paul Nicholas released 'Reggae like it used to be'
70s 80s reggae is great on hot summer days cruising in an old car you just polished up (or got someone else to do it)
Beautiful music. Great for setting the mood on a nice hot day passing round a jug of something refreshing or equally for cheering up those dark winter evenings trying to avoid stabbing the cat.
And may I add to your excellent list:
Lee 'Scratch' Perry and the Upsetters
Toots & The Maytals
Reggae: The gift that keeps on giving.
there is some great eek a mouse and yellowman on youtube, brings back memories of st pauls carnival
Absolutely love 70s reggae! :D
You cannot beat such classics as :
Return Of Django - The Upsetters
Liquidator - Harry J And All Stars
Long Shot Kick De Bucket -The Pioneers
Skinhead Moonstomp - Symarip
Barb Wire - Nora Dean
Dat - Pluto Shervington
I really like it was well.
Eek-a-Mouse Peel Sessions ahoy!
Most of the stuff from Trojan records in the early 70's is magic ... I have a vinyl called Trojan Explosion with most of the artists mentioned above.
