World of Reggae Music Collection: Dancehall Reggae–The Old School

In this edition of The World of Reggae Music Collection the selector dives into the deep catalog of  Dancehall Reggae. This first exploration of the dancehall pulls from the Old School Dancehall tunes from the late 1970s through the 1990s. The kings of the dancehall make the list here, including Barrington Levy, Shabba Ranks, Cocoa Tea, Tenor Saw, Yellowman, and Super Cat. Unique voices, fat riddims, and heavy bass lines make for great dancehall reggae music.

From the creative stylings of Junior ReidTiger and Cutty Ranks to the rough-shod rhyming of Bounty Killer, Capleton, and Buju Banton to the smooth silky voices of Beres Hammond, Sanchez, and Frankie Paul, dancehall music filled the air in Jamaica where its was played over thundering soundsystems with speakers stacked mountain high. This collection of old school dancehall songs includes favorites from Half Pint, Johnny Ousborne, Eek-A-Mouse, Ninjaman, and Chaka Demus & Pliers, as well as the deeper cuts from classic dancehall artists like Early B, Anthony Red Rose, Brigadier Jerry and Super Beagle.

The selector has also made lists of dancehall reggae music, including Classic Dancehall Tracks, New School Danechall Selections, and ruff riding Ragga singles. Please comment on the selections.
