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–Dub Reggae: Classic Dub

Classic Dub

Drums and Bass dominate in this edition of the World of Reggae Music Collection.  The selector explores the classic dub hits of Reggae Music. King Tubby, Lee Perry & The Upsetters, Scientist, Sly & Robbie, and Prince Jammy, the professionals of dub, found that the kids at the dancehalls and sound systems went wild for instrumental versions of tunes laced with echoes and other effects. Great musicians often soloed over the versions, such as saxophonist Tommy McCook and keyboardist/melodica player Augustus Pablo. This compilation of dub tracks includes some of the great reggae bands Roots Radics, The Upsetters, the Observers, The Aggrovators, Soul Syndicate, and The Dub Syndicate.

World of Reggae Music Collection: The Ska Originals

The World of Reggae Music

The Ska Originals

The Jam-Tex selector presents a new chapter in the “Wolrd of Reggae Music Collection” called The Ska Originals.

The Jam-Tex selector has been working on a study and organization of the essential tracks of reggae music called “The World of Reggae Music Collection.” The selector invites others to comment on the selected tracks and to join in on the conversation about the history of reggae music.  This collection of singles began with the greatest roots reggae hits in categories entitled “Reggae’s Superstars: The Lions of Jah” and “Reggae’s Superstars: The Lion Youth.”

Now the selector moves back in time to the roots of reggae, exploring the greatest singles from the early ska era. Please feel free to suggest your favorite singles. The primary examination of the “Ska Originals” genre focuses on the founders of ska music from the late 1950s to the 1960s. Later posts will explore forms of ska music of the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s:  Two-Tone Ska and Third Wave Ska

Some of the same Jamaican singers, musicians, and producers of the original ska music movement later became the fathers and mothers of rocksteady and reggae.  A young Robert Nesta Marley recorded some ska tunes and so did Bob Marley‘s vocal group the Wailin’ Wailers, which later became the Wailers. Alton Ellis, Jimmy Cliff, Toots & The Maytals, Desmond Dekker, John Holt, Ken Boothe, Derrick Morgan, Clancy Eccles, Cornell Campbell, and Lee “Scratch” Perry all played ska as young lads. These Jamaican superstars all make this collection of ska singles.

The classic ska bands and vocal groups of the era appear on this collection, including the famed The Skatalites, The Ethiopians, The Pioneers, The Soulettes, The Paragons, The Heptones, The Ethiopians, The Techniques, The Upsetters, The Baba Brooks Band, The Gaylads, and The Versatiles. Many of the great ska musicians have singles that made this chart, like Don Drummond, Roland Alphonso, Lyn Taitt, and Tommy McCook.

Ska music is fun and fast, yet a very easy-going music that sends you skanking around the room. I love this music. There are some wonderful characters that came out of this musical genre, performers like Prince Buster, Sir Lord Comic, Lord Kitchener, Stranger Cole, Lord Creator, and the Folkes Brothers. Plus the dynamite sounds of Byron Lee and the Dragonaires make for some of the most classic ska tracks. The Jam-Tex selector invites you to comment on the list and make suggestions.
