OK I did recently. so here's a Jackie Mittoo showcase for you instead:

Jackie Mittoo - if you like instrumental reggae this man did NOT cut a single bad track or album.

he also re-recorded stuff as time went on and you can appreciate the same tuff rear end song done in 1969 rocksteady style vs. 1976 echoplex dub

they are all dope, even the string-filled 70s cheese of "Reggae Magic" which you need to let into your heart. put this poo poo on and imagine the sun hitting the top of your head

Sorry for spamming this thread but I've been neglectful and need to catch up to my current listening:
Shadow (of "Jump Judges Jump" earlier in the thread). So loving good, and the instrumental arrangements are really unique genre crossbreeds. Heavy moog bassline. Shadow wrote really interesting lyrics about unusual topics - though this song is just about how important music is to him, "instead of giving me love, give me music, plenty music" a philosophy I can understand
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-nlhXKbAITI
an early hit - Bassman... "I was planning to forget calypso, and go and plant peas in Tobago, but I am afraid I can't make the grade... cause every night I lay down in me bed, I hearing a bassman in me head"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vng3QVblxxY
"even the best thief could never steal my belief" - his songs have a sentimentality that sort of show that his visual weirdness and weird singing style are actually really earnest
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aGwf1ke4hh4
in the words of a youtube commenter "dis man music is simple on the surface but when yuh listen a few times yuh does get riddim,lyrics, comedy and more he real great!"

final post for now I'm gonna wrap it up with some non-reggae caribbean old fashioned sentimentality

Martiniquais lullaby-sounding-rear end folk song, "adieu foulard, adieu madras". it's about a lover leaving on a ship and the singer has missed their chance. side note DO NOT SEEK OUT ANY OTHER VERSIONS THAN THE SMITHSONIAN FOLKWAYS because french people have recorded some unbelievable chud versions of this
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CWCyvojUO6A
I can't listen to this song too often because it gives me chest pain and I get teary eyed, I barely know french well enough to understand it, much less martiniquais creole, but it hits me hard

I'm not sure if this is ska or reggae but it's one of my favourite covers ever -.

What a great song! Tommy McCook seemed to have some real genre-straddling music. I guess that's reggae, too slow for ska. I like this one of his, which is pretty close to a funk song in the bass and drums but still has a rocksteady chord rhythm behind it.

I'm deeply gr8ful 2 deep glove Bruno, slush garbo and everyone else itt for keeping it going. It's actually been too much reggae for me to follow if I'm honest. I still come back here on the reg for Easy Star All Stars' rendition of radiohead's Let Down (in the op) and my new favorite song, Get ur Meat out me Rice

vegans should adopt it as their mantra if u axe me

How Wonderful!


I only have excellent ideas.


I really like the direction this thread has taken. In college I became best friends with my room-mate and lived with them for most of my four years and they were really into ska and got increasingly into the antecedents of it, branching out into first-wave stuff and then dub and dancehall and working out from there, so a lot of these songs are bringing up nice memories even though I wasn't paying very close attention to a lot of it at the time. They died last year and it's been rough as it got past the one year anniversary so catching up on this thread today and clicking all the links has been a really good and fun ride.

theyre not reggae, just a rock band that appropriated reggae, but its mainly a joke about how 311 is awful

a mere shadow of fake reggae rock like sublime, who also suck

barnold

sublime is fine and the people who freak out about them are universally some of the dumbest people on earth. they weren't amazing or even good but at least they gave a poo poo about the origins of the music they played unlike every other soulless white american corpo-reggae/skapunk band that was paid millions by suits to appropriate the culture

angelo moore from fishbone has nice things to say about sublime and considering that he and norwood fisher basically pioneered the rock/skapunk/reggae fusion that got white people famous 10 years later (and got absolutely no credit for it) i'm willing to respect his opinion

also the 311 keychain thing was a joke lol

e: just to be clear when I say "people who freak out about sublime" I mean both the people who say they are horrible garbage and the people who are like "duuuuude sublime is like the best band of all time" haha

Rude is the color of your energy sir. Bands like sublime and 311 are what led many of us to the enjoyment of actual reggae.

The reggae zone is no place for this kind of negativity. Kindly can it or gtfo

music opinions are just that, and I stand behind mine

when people say what they think of music it's always an opinion

mine is that 311 and sublime dont belong here and I wish they hadn't been brought up
