The World of Reggae Music Collection: Reggae inna Golden Oldies Version

GOLDEN OLDIES VERSION

In this edition of the World of Reggae Music Collection the selector uncovers some of the greatest reggae cover songs. This particular edition focuses on the Golden Oldies. Form pop sensations Elvis Presley, Neil DiamondBobby Darin, and Fats Domino to the singer/songwriters Bob Dylan and James Taylor to  the rock and roll greats like the Beatles, The Rolling Stones, and the Animals, to the soul crooners like Sam Cooke, Ray Charles, Otis Redding, and Bill Withers this compilation of tracks explores the greatest reggae versions of pop hits.

Groups like Three Dog Night, The Association, and The Archies dominated American and British pop charts. And many Jamaicans took these tunes and transformed them into Jamaican reggae hits. One of my favorites in this edition is Bob Marley’s cover of the Archies tune “Sugar Sugar.”  Some of the greatest reggae performers including Gregory Isaacs, Jimmy Cliff,Toots & The Maytals, Dennis Brown, and John Holt took on these rock and roll legends and covered excellent pop songs from the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s.  And of course, Ub40 made an entire career at the art of the reggae oldies cover, making smash top 40 hits out of Sonny And Cher‘sI Got You Babe” and Elvis Presley’s(I Can’t Help) Falling In Love With You.”

The World of Reggae Music Collection: Reggae inna Golden Oldies Version

The World of Reggae Music Collection: Lover’s Rock

LOVER’S ROCK

In this edition of the World of Reggae Music Collection the selector explores the sweet side of reggae music. Since the early origins of reggae music, love songs have formed an important part of the musical landscape. The sultry voices of Beres Hammond, Ken Boothe, and Dennis Brown alongside the  falsetto voices of Courtney John and Bitty McLean bring real soul power to lover’s rock. And the reggae legends Gregory Isaacs, John Holt, Sugar Minott, and Freddie McGregor shined in this style.

Many legends of reggae, including Bob Marley & the Wailers and Jimmy Cliff have made some beautiful lover’s rock tunes, while some artists like Maxi Priest, Peter Hunningale, and Tarrus Riley have relied on the genre producing a plethora of lover’s selections. And there are some classic cuts here, including Tyrone Taylor’s “Cottage in Negril” and Terry Linen’s “No Time To Linger.”

Some artists surprise their audiences with softer sides, for example, roots reggae artist Alborosie and dancehall singjay Busy Signal have recorded sweet songs for the ladies. And there are many women, including EtanaMarcia Griffiths and Hortense Ellis, who have recorded lush reggae songs filled with love. From Alton Ellis to Sean Paul, love music has been an integral part of reggae.

The World of Reggae Music Collection: Dancehall Reggae–Classic Tracks

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.

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

The World of Reggae Music–Superhits: Popular Reggae

In this edition of the World of Reggae Music Collection the selector explores the most popular reggae hits. Pop Reggae helps to bring people from mainstream pop music to the reggae genre. The famous British selector David Rodigan, for example, became infatuated with reggae after hearing Millie Small performher megahit “My Boy Lollipop.”   That’s where this selection of popular reggae hits begins with the 1964 international ska hit from the Jamaican singer Millie Small. And like the famous ska artists that achieved international fame in the 1960s, the modern dancehall artists Sean Paul and Shaggy have appealed to pop music fans of the 1990s and 2000s, and their albums opened doors for music fans to explore more reggae music. These artists hook new reggae fans and trigger them to explore deeper into the reggae catalog. So this selection focuses on the reggae superhits like “Pass The Dutchie” and “Here Comes The Hotstepper” that were popular in the mainstream and prompted music lovers to listen to more reggae.
