The World of Reggae Music Collection: Collie Herb

COLLIE HERB

In this edition of the World of Reggae Music Collection the selecta explores the reggae songs dedicated to the ganja. It is believed that the term ganja came from India and from the Indians who migrated to Jamaica. Many of the great reggae artists performed songs about the herb, some taking the tunes to another level playing ganja anthems. From Bob Marley & the Wailers’ “Kaya” to Barrington Levy’s “Under Mi Sensi” to Peter Tosh’s anthem “Legalize It” the weed is a constant theme in reggae music.

According to Rastafarians, collie herb grew on the grave of the wisest man in history, King Solomon. For this reason the herb is to be smoked as a sacrament. Often the smoke is referred to as wine to be partaken in communion. The water pipe is called the chalice or cup from which the smoker draws or sups from the cup. Furthermore the great collie herb aids in meditation. The World of Reggae Music Collection presents the finest tunes about sensi.

The World of Reggae Music Collection: Collie Herb

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.

BOSS DEEJAYS

In this edition of the World of Reggae Music Collection the selector focuses in on the boss deejays. This list is heavily laden with the top ranking deejays U Roy, Big Youth, Dennis Alcapone, and I Roy. In this edition U-Roy “The Originator” especially shines. Also the unique stylings of Yellowman, Eek-A-Mouse, Ranking Joe, and Trinity appear alongside the famous female deejay Sister Nancy. And make sure to check out the deejay Early B and his amazing story songs “History Of Jamaica” and “Bible Story.” The boss deejays are the fathers and mothers of rap music. They were the first to take instrumental versions and dubs, and toast over the top of them. Thus these toasters are not only important to the foundations of reggae music, but also to the roots of rap and hip-hop music. Plus if you listen closely there is a message. There are many life lessons that can be learned from these Boss Deejays. Yes in fact these toasters make good teachers. So Remember when you ride like lightning, you crash like thunder. And if you can’t be good then you must be careful.

World of Reggae Music Collection: Roots and Culture

Slavery Days

In the final edition of the Roots and Culture volume of the World of Reggae Music Collection the selector presents Slavery Days. Over 400 years of slavery ravaged the Atlantic world. And in fact, the legacy of slavery has been nearly as destructive. The African Holocaust, as some in the reggae profession have termed the catastrophic event, unleashed horrific consequences for the people of Africa and for those enslaved Africans transplanted to the islands of the Caribbean.

Jamaican reggae artists played many of their Roots and Culture songs about the history and legacy of slavery. The iconic Burning Spear recorded one of the most enduring songs in this vein called “Slavery Days.” The Wailers recorded “Slave Driver” on the classic reggae album Catch A Fire. Both the Bob Marley and The Wailers full-band version of “Redemption Song (Band Version)” and the Bob Marley’s acoustic version of “Redemption Song (Album Version)” appears on this edition. Some of these songs of slavery are in fact songs of freedom.

The bands Steel Pulse, Culture, Third World, and the Wailing Souls; the reggae stars Gregory Isaacs, Lee Scratch Perry, Junior Byles, Judy Mowatt, and Peter Tosh; and the dancehall singjays Capleton, Anthony B, and Macka B all played wonderful roots tunes about the issues dealing with slavery and its impacts.
