"Di Reggae Yard"

I was. . . Around. Blazing sensa. And well... Yeah, playing my four Black Uhuru albums over and over 'till I realized I had unconnected sequels in my head and decided to post in here.

 

 

Listen to some Anthony B or Sizzla for good Dancehall.

 

Sizzla is hot sh*t, but my favorite would have to be Capleton. Capleton really lights tracks on fire when he gets on 'em... I mean, whut, his "Fire" track on the Martial Arts riddim has been 'round for ages and I still love listening to it & it attracts plenty hot punani when I play it in public places. :>

 

And Mad Cobra is also nice. That track he did on the Military riddim was mad sick! "Put gunshot" or something like this, I think it was called. YouTube it, it's worth.

 

Dancehall reggae, though, in my opinion doesn't have anything to do with roots reggae except being Jamaican. . . Dancehall has way too much slack to be good for the spirit, as roots is. But it's still good when you're in the club or when you gon' hit that. :3

S'all about Bounty and Buju for me..buju got that crossover appeal. Bounty put out all that dopeness with hip hop artists.

 

Capleton tho..Jah Jah city is a big, big tune. Guys a f*cking headcase as well biggrin.gif

 

 

Any Eek a Mouse listeners here?

Not really a big fan of dancehall at all. Nowadays I really dislike it. I do listen to a littla sizzla and buju banton even some chaka demis with plies. I Also beavis I got some respect for the spear. Just that my mom constantly puts his songs on repeat. And dub reggae is the best to me, if it wasn't for my parents, I wouldn't appreciate or wouldn't know about it till my later years.

Oh really? I get what you mean by todays dancehall isn't much roots, but earlier stuff by the great Anthony B. had some really great rootsy dancehall.

Nice tune, Beavis, nice one indeed.

 

I got a li'l request for the Reggae crew. . . Anyone can share a worthy video or an MP3 stream of some Louie Rankin? I heard about this guy a couple of times (movies "Belly" and "Top Shottas" along with Big Apple's exclusive interview on YouTube) and he looks interesting, but I couldn't find anything worthy of him. Trying to see what that guy did, 'cause he looks important in that interview. >.<

 

I only found a song called "Riding West" by him, but it was boring and plain to me. . . The rest of songs he was apparently featured on, it was only his voice samples (Kymani Marley's "Ghetto Soldier" for example).

I gotta be honest I dont really know much about the guy..I think he did a track with Sage Francis, but i might be mistaken. Sorry man not much help. I think hes more DJ than vocalist though.

Am I the only one who feels somewhat of a high when they hear Reggae? I can't help to feel uplifted by some of this good music.

 

Any requests?

Can one of you motherf*ckers tell me what hip hop song sampled Augustus Pablo's "Addis-A-Baba"? I'm pretty sure it was Atmosphere, but I don't know.

Heh, I actually quite like it now. I know I was bagging it in the other topic but I think the key is to not look at it as a cover but just look at it as it's own album. I think you're the one who said that and it's kinda worked.

 

And cheers for the recommendation, I think I've heard of them before.

Just listened to Burning Spear's Garvey's ghost dub album. It is amazing, I think that sly and robbie did the production for it since they do a sh*tload of production.

Yeah, another one by Black Uhuru, a classic imo. Black Uhuru are the only ones I currently know, I've just scratched the surface though.

Black Uhuru is great but certainly not one of my favs.

 

Jacob Miller is not only a righteous singer, but his band is on a whole different level than most reggae bands.

 

 

 

Check out my youtube page under Videos and Favorites for some GOOD reggae.

I didn't know that he was maxi priest's uncle. I loved the original inner circle. There recent singer is alright but he doesn't have the same flame as Jacob. Does anyone here know Garnett Silk? he also was an amazing reggae artist.

And you call a roots reggae man what about those grooves !

 

The Blues Busters - How sweet it is / Soon You'll be Gone

and I'm-a-diggin' those soulfoul jams specially the later!

 

From the Video:

 

The Blues Busters, Lloyd Campbell and Phillip James, were one of the earliest Jamaican vocal duos. Their late-'50s start saw them emulating American R&B and, surprisingly, at the dawn of the '60s arriving at the same soulful conclusion as that of their U.S. counterparts. They were also major contenders in the ska boom with hits like "Behold" and "(If I Had The) Wings of a Dove." Although the duo worked with other producers, including a few early sides for Coxsone Dodd, they recorded primarily with Byron Lee. The bandleader brought them to New York in 1964 to perform at the World's Fair. While there they recorded their debut album, Behold How Sweet It Is. The Blues Busters were determined to have success in the States, and returned again and again throughout the second half of the '60s to record and perform. They released a number of singles on small labels like Minit and even a few for major-label Capitol, but never had the breakthrough success they sought. They continued to record in the '70s but as the decade wore on and their well of hits began to run dry, they recorded less and less. Their last recordings date

from the early '80s.

 

Millie Small - My Boy Lollipop

What about this high-pitched, party-smashing blissful slice of reggae heaven?

 

 

Millie Small's singing career began when she was still a teenager. She became a popular artist in the West Indies and was one of the few female performers to be involved in the branch of R&B music that grew in those islands, called 'Ska'.

 

Her early local successes were made as half of a duet called 'Roy And Millie'. The other half was called Roy Panton. She recorded as half of 'Owen & Millie' (Owen Gray) and 'Jackie & Millie' (Jackie Edwards).

These record releases were on labels like 'Studio One', 'Island' and the legendary 'Blue Beat'. In fact she was to become known in the West Indies as the 'Blue Beat Girl' and 'Ska' is still known by many people as 'blue beat'.

Millie was brought to Britain during 1963 by Chris Blackwell, who later made an effort to promote Reggae in the UK. Her first UK release 'Don't You Know' owed less to her Ska background, being accompanied by an orchestra conducted by Lord Rockingham's Harry Robinson. It didn't sell too badly but Millie's unique high pitched style wasn't enough to get it into the chart.

However, her second release was a stronger song and was based more closely to the West Indian rhythms she was accustomed to. It became a massive hit on both sides of the Atlantic, reaching number 2 in the U.S. chart as well as in Britain.

Sadly, despite the great success of the record, it did not set a new musical style in people's awareness. 'My Boy Lollipop' was simply regarded by most record buyers at the time as an item of delightful, but lightweight 'pop' . (Incidentally the record is alleged by some to have a young Rod Stewart on harmonica).

Although she had a couple of further minor hits, she never managed to consolidate her famous smash. She remained in the public conscience for a long time and was also regarded by many as a role model.

 

Dandy Livingstone - A Message To You, Rudy

What about this gem! covered by the great SPECIALS more than a decade later this is a record that stands the test of time and it is dedicated to all of you rudeboys!

 

 

(born Robert Livingstone Thompson, 14 December 1943[1], Kingston, Jamaica) is a Jamaican reggae musician and producer, best known for his 1972 hit, "Suzanne Beware of the Devil", and for his song, "Rudy, A Message to You", which was later a hit for The Specials. "Suzanne Beware of the Devil", reached number 14 on the UK Singles Chart.

 

The Paragons - The Tide Is High

What'd I Say? Keeping with the covers theme this one went huge for blondie back in '80 and here it is in its original glory back from its 1967 heyday! Lovin that violin!

 

 

The Paragons were originally Garth "Tyrone" Evans, Bob Andy, Junior Menz, and Leroy Stamp. In 1964 Stamp was replaced by John Holt, and Howard Barret replaced Menz.

 

The early Paragons sound was heavily influenced by American soul music and used the tight vocal harmonies of Jamaican groups of the early 1960s. In 1964, the group caught the attention of the record producer, Duke Reid, and they cut a succession of popular singles for his "Treasure Isle" record label.

 

The Paragons' recordings, most famously "The Tide Is High", written by John Holt, and featuring the violin of "White Rum" Raymond, are among the highlights of Jamaican popular music. "The Tide Is High" was taken to the top of the UK and U.S. charts by Blondie in 1980; whilst Atomic Kitten's cover version also topped the UK Singles Chart in 2002.

 

Bill Deal & The Rhondels - I've Been Hurt

This one is up there with the greats

 

 

Bill Deal & the Rhondels were formed in 1965 in Virginia Beach, crossing blue-eyed soul, Beach music and Horn rock. They had 3 hits in 1969, I've Been Hurt (U.S. #35), What Kind Of Fool Do You Think I Am (U.S. #23) & May I (U.S. #39).

 

Latin Ska Medley

Straight up from the tail end of the 60s came all those gems, all covers and IMO some of these are even better than the originals
