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.
