Here is a package of 20 of the most interesting roots sounds from the classic age of reggae music in Jamaica, 1971 through1974. Many of these classics are Jamaican perennials. As an example Prince Jazzbo demonstrates how rapping’s roots go way back to the early days of what the Rastamen called “toasting.” Many artists in this package would be considered “one-hit wonders.” Some of these artists are long-forgotten voices and some are those who are still making hit after hit. But, they all contributed to the foundation and the spreading of reggae music around the world.
