117 - Reggae Lover - GREGORY ISAACS Roots Reggae

Gregory Isaacs ROOTS is the theme for Reggae Lover Podcast Episode 117. This episode features roots reggae songs from the Gregory Isaacs catalog. I chose to curate his songs about the reality of everyday life and the strife of poor people. #download Gregory Isaacs was born in Jamaica on July 15, 1951. He made his debut in 1968 with a recording for Byron Lee. He then started the African Museum record label and shop along with Errol Dunkley. Isaacs recorded for other producers as well. His single 'My Only Lover,' is credited as the first lover's rock song ever. He released music throughout the 70s. In 1978 he signed to the Virgin Records offshoot call Frontline records. That led to his appearance in the movie "Rockers." He also opened a record shop called Cash & Carry in Kingston. He performed yearly at Reggae Sunsplash from 1981 to 1991. In 1982 he signed to Island Records and released the massive single, "Night Nurse." Isaacs was only challenged by Dennis Brown and Bob Marley in touring. Gregory recorded and released at least 70 original studio albums. He has over 500 albums including compilations. He maintained an amazing standard of quality in most of his recorded songs. Gregory Isaacs was nominated for four Grammy Awards, the last of which in 2010 and 2011. One of the things associated with Isaacs was cocaine use. He had many arrests during the years that he battled with addiction. When you listen to this mix compared to my lover's rock mix (Episode 116), you can sense a different vibration. Gregory's passionate lyrical delivery on social issues is very believable. He passed away in 2010 to lung cancer. I would love to hear what you think about this singer - the musical giant known as "The Cool Ruler." Comment here, tweet @ReggaeLoverPod, or send an email to [email protected].

107 - Reggae Lover - Foundation Vocal Harmony Groups Mix

THIS MIX FEATURES REGGAE’S VOCAL HARMONY GROUPS FROM THE 60S, 70S, AND 80S.I took it back to the roots on this one. I focused on songs with an impressive vocal arrangement. This is a specific selection of songs with male singers harmonizing together.I featured The Wailers, mostly from the “Catch A Fire” album. That album has that very dry, grassroots sound. This was before instrumentation such as horn sections and electric guitars were added. Before the female energy of the I-Threes was added.The mix also featured some of The Heptones‘ Studio One era hits. I dropped in some original Israel Vibration before they split. Other groups featured are The Techniques, The Abyssinians, The Gladiators, The Sensations, The Mighty Diamonds, and The Silvertones. You also hear songs from Lloyd Parks and We the People, The Sharks, The Royals, The Cables, and The Flames.Listen to those names and you know these brothers were from a different time. These vocal groups created some of the most beautiful music and the most powerful songs. You feel their passion because of the emphasis conveyed within the harmonies. There was something special about those days.Its the sweet soulful sound of great reggae music! If you enjoy this, check out episode 74. It’s entitled “The Greatest Reggae Bands of All Time (not including the Wailers).” That show features Aswad, Steel Pulse, Third World, Israel Vibration, Black Uhuru, and Inner Circle.

95 - Reggae Lover - Bushman

Hear some of my favorite tracks from Bushman’s catalog on episode 95 of the reggae lover podcast. Bushman has released nine full-length albums to date. Born in Prospect Beach which is in the parish of St Thomas, Jamaica, he was raised as a Rastafarian. Singing in school and church choirs led to singing dubplates for local sound systems. Bushman actually worked as a selector under the name Junior Melody for black star line sound system.  He took part in singing competitions and talent searches in and around St. Thomas. His popularity grew as more people heard him sing. Bushman decided to pursue his music career. He went to Kingston where he ended up working with Steely and Clevie at Studio 2000. His first tracks were “Grow Your Natty” and “Call the Hearse” which was his first major hit. Bushman moved on to work with King Jammy who produced his next two albums. He later teamed up with Bobby Digital, the UK-based Stingray team, and other producers. I respect Bushman for being a down-to-earth, authentic person who stays true to the values in his music. He still lives with his wife and children in St. Thomas enjoying nature and an "Ital" lifestyle. Bushman is a living legend with a vocal range encompassing tonality reminiscent of Luciano and Peter Tosh. I want to highlight the “Bushman sings the bush doctor” album released in 2011 on VP records which is a fantastic Peter Tosh tribute. Also look out for “Conquering Lion” which is a 2018 released album from Bushman. There are few better examples of authentic Roots reggae music than Bushman. Indeed on that tip please look out for the annual Health and Wellness Reggae Music Festival at the Wren's Nest in the West End area of Atlanta. Taking place on Saturday, July 14th, this festival is an open-air, family-friendly, daytime event where I will play music alongside the Lion of Judah sound. There will be live bands and many performers. There will be Health practitioners, vendors, and lots of information. If you are vegan, vegetarian, or have an interest in learning more about healthy living, this event is for you. If you love reggae music, its an event for you. Get your tickets online. Thank you to all my listeners around the world. Special big ups to Ras Jamal in Savannah, GA, Collin Cameron out in New Jersey, and James out in Kenya. You guys are not only listening, but I appreciate that you take the time to send feedback and suggestions. Because of you, this podcast is a collaborative effort and it's a beautiful thing.

92- Reggae Lover Mix - A Cry for Peace

A cry for peace from global reggae artists in a mix dedicated to all reggae lovers. This is crucial for today's society. The climate we exist in right now is one of escalating violence. War is on the rise throughout my beloved Caribbean islands and the areas where many of us live.  I definitely want to send condolences to all the people who lost loved ones to violence. Gun violence is a hot topic with so many active shooter situations, police brutality, turf wars in the ghetto, the war on drugs, domestic violence, and genocide. It's my hope that playing this music will help. All human life is precious and it's important that we manage our emotions so that we don't do anything we live to regret. To hurt somebody else is to hurt yourself. You don't have to be a victim of your environment. It is possible to make a better decision and rise above your circumstances. Love is the answer. The wages of sin is death. The gift of God is eternal life. Let's come together in peace. Make amends with an enemy. Turn an enemy into a friend. Teach the younger ones a better way so that they can come up in a better world. They are the future. With so many things going on in the world today I don't want to turn on the news. I know for some of you it hard to leave your house or move around where you live. The violence is a real thing but remember God is there with you. Remember reggae music is here to help you through. Its a blessing, so I hope that you enjoy this music.  I hope that it can help in some positive way. Thank you so much for listening to Reggae Lover by Highlanda Sound.  Shouts out to Mrs. Wonda. Shouts to Ras Kofi and I Ras at 89.3 WRFG FM.  Big up to the Apple Podcast, SoundCloud, iHeartRadio, Stitcher, and TuneIn listeners. You guys are the best! Share the peace and love.

91 - Reggae Lover Podcast - Top Lyricist Mix

This is episode number 91 of the Reggae Lover Podcast with the top lyricists of Reggae music today. The selection features 20 lyrically potent songs. The concept was a suggestion by Kris Richards, a listener out of the Atlanta. Kris is a visual and graphic artist who enjoys listening to this podcast while he creates his art. He created the original artwork for this episode.  Visit @iandidea on IG to see Kris Richards' magnificent works. A big shout out and thank you to Kris, representing Jamaica and the ATL. So far his feedback is that this mix is too short, and he has requested a part 2. I'm cool with it. I'll go ahead and mix up a series of lyricist-based podcast episodes. This mix keeps your head bobbing all the way through. If you came to the end and thought "wait... what... it's over already?" then I know you will come back for more. Meanwhile, you have to go back and listen to this wordplay and these metaphors. Lyrics are layered with symbolism in the songs, especially those by Kabaka Pyramid. You have to go back and listen again to extract the true meaning. Rebellious Nature by Agent Sasco kicked it off. Wicked Man by Busy Signal, Wadada by Jesse Royal and Kabaka Pyramid's Global Warning complete the intro. Listen to Can't Breathe, Well Done, and also Liberal Opposer by Kabaka. He also features on The Flame with Protege. Koffee, the 17-year-old sensation, makes her mark on Burning. Protege's creativity is on display with the one called Criminal and also Truth and Rights. Over Damian Marley's On the Corner Riddim, you hear Chronixx with Ghetto People. Busy Signal's Survival from the Return Riddim by Jukebox Productions adds to the vibe. Love Is All I Bring, the new Spragga Benz tune from Sting International fits in well. I was able to squeeze in 1999's Wha Yuh Say Star which got left off of the Spragga Benz podcast. Damian Marley flows on The Master Has Come Back and Road to Zion featuring Nas off the Welcome to Jamrock album. In the next edition of the lyrical opposer mix, you're going to hear some more from Vybz Kartel. I'll also bring it very current with 2018 material from these and other new artists. Thank you to the listeners who have added ratings and reviews on iTunes. Shouts out to my very lovely wife who has been binge listening via the podcast app on her new iPhone. I'm honored to have you listen to my podcast. It's all about us reggae lovers. We have to continue to spread the culture. I focus on the reality I want to see which is positivity. Positive energy and momentum arise from reggae music. Shout out to my family at WRFG 89.3FM.

90 - Reggae Lover Podcast - The Silky One

The emergence of Garnett Silk was as timely and triumphant as we've seen in the business of reggae music. Upon first hearing Garnet Silk sing you can see this is somebody that wants you to feel what he's singing about. You can feel that this is someone who has a deep conviction for the messages in his music. Garnett achieved iconic status within only a matter of years. His career took off between 1992 and 1994 when there was a conversion in the mood of the Dancehall. Silk sang cultural songs that spoke to the needs and desires of the African diaspora. Legendary producer Bobby digital recorded his debut album “It’s Growing.” That album featured deep cultural themes, spiritual songs, and romantic songs. It went on to become one of the best selling albums in Jamaica for 1992. One of the big questions for reggae fans is “What if…?” What if Garnett was able to live on until today? We’re blessed with the musical legacy he left. Enjoy this mix, collect his music. Garnett Silk is definitely not forgotten. He is always remembered and always missed.

87 - Reggae Lover Podcast - Jah Cure Mix

Reggae Lover Podcast episode 87 features the voice of Jah Cure. Born in October 1978 in Hanover, Jamaica, Jah Cure grew up in Kingston. He got the name Jah Cure from Capleton who he met while living in Kingston. Under the tutelage of Beres Hammond the hit song, King In This Jungle, a 1997 duet with Sizzla emerged. Many of the songs Jah Cure released around that time became popular and won critical acclaim. Beres took him on tour to Europe and through the Caribbean with his Harmony House Records family. Cure emerged to be one of the brightest stars of 1997, which was an amazing year for reggae music and dancehall. The music of that period inspired me to start buying records and aspiring to be a selector. This mix focuses on songs from that time. In November 1998 while driving in Montego Bay, Jah Cure got pulled over by the police and arrested. Charged with gun possession, robbery, and rape, he was found guilty and sentenced to 15 years in prison. He served in a correctional facility that had a digital recording studio that inmates could use. During his incarceration term, he recorded three albums and some singles, many of which topped charts in Jamaica. Upon his release from jail on parole in July 2007 after serving 8 years of the sentence, Jah Cure came out with a fourth album, "Reflections... a new beginning." Cure headlined and closed Reggae Sumfest that year in August. He signed to VP Records he launched Iyah Cure Productions. Over the next several years he collaborated with top artists from the reggae, hip-hop, and R&B worlds. Jah Cure released the "Universal Cure" album in 2009 then came out with "The Cure," which earned a Grammy nomination for Best Reggae Album in 2016. The end of this mix features of lovers rock of which Jah Cure has released a great deal of recently. My main focus was the original, undiluted, grassroots material. The songs from before his incarceration are more soulful, inspirational, and rebellious. I wish Jah Cure much continued success in the future. He has a beautiful family and lots going in the music business. That's it for reggae lover podcast episode 87. Look out for a bonus live audio episode coming your way from BobFest ATL.

86 - Reggae Lover Podcast - Sugar Minott

Why is Sugar Minott considered a dancehall pioneer? Listen to Reggae Lover Podcast 86 to find out. In a live dancehall setting during the 1970s, it was common for artists to perform over pre-recorded instrumentals. Sugar Minott was the first artist to recreate that style inside the studio. He worked with Coxsone Dodd and sang new lyrics over the instrumentals of popular Studio One songs. After leaving Studio One, Minott founded his own record label called the Black Roots. He also founded a sound system called Youth Man Promotions, and later a record label by the same name. His vision was to give young artists an outlet, and a chance to make their name in the music business. Sugar Minott moved to England where he was achieving more success than he was in Jamaica. The lover's rock craze started in the UK and Sugar was one of the major players in that movement. While in England he discovered the group Musical Youth. Back in Jamaica, he's also credited with discovering many young talents. He gave unknown artists the chance to perform live in the Dancehall and record for the first time. It was Sugar Minott who actually recorded Garnet Silk's first song. Other artists associated with the Black Roots and Youthman Promotion movements include Barrington Levy, Little John, Nitty Gritty, Tenor Saw, Junior Reid, Jah Stitch, Ranking Dread and Ranking Joe. Sugar was a very Dynamic, versatile artist with successful records in different styles. Lovers rock, Roots, covers, dancehall style, and original written material. Sugar Minott recorded for his own record labels, and he worked with other top labels and producers. Working with Mikey Dread, George Phang, Sly and Robbie Jammys, Channel One and with the Bullwackies label out of New York City. Sugar Minott recorded over 60 albums and countless singles. He passed away in 2010 to heart disease. To see him on stage I was very impressed. Even in his old age, he was a very energetic performer, acting out scenes, jumping, prancing and dancing across the stage. All with his voice still sounding sweet like sugar. Very comfortable in a dancehall setting, he would ask the band or the selector to play some Studio One, and he could sing for hours - entertaining and thrilling the crowd. I salute the great Sugar Minott. His legacy lives on with his daughter Pashon Minott who is a bonafide recording artist in her own rights. If you enjoy this mix I hope you will add some of the songs to your music collection.Support this podcast at — Inquiries: & Opt-Out:

83 - Reggae Lover Podcast - Glen Washington, Norrisman, George Nooks, Jah Mason

This unique mix was requested by a listener in the United Kingdom. It's probably the first time any selector has compiled these particular artists on one project, but that is what the Reggae Lover Podcast is all about. Glen Washington, George Nooks, Norris Man, & Jah Mason all began gaining popularity in the mid-to-late 90s, though Glen Washington and George Nooks started their musical careers in the 1970s. Glen Washington, born in May Pen, Clarendon, Jamaica was a drummer and who toured the world with many different bands and backed many different artists and performers from the 70s through the 80s into the 90s. He migrated to the United States and recorded sporadically as a solo singer but extensively as a drummer. In 1997 when he started to focus on pursuing his solo singing career he did some recording sessions for Studio One and then he sort of blew up with a big hit in 1998 with the song "Kindness for Weakness." which was marketed by VP records. From there he solidified his career and started to tour the world again as a solo singer. Like Glen Washington, George Nooks was born in the 1950s inJamaica. He sang in the youth choir at church, performed at school concerts and talent shows. He professionally recording under the name Prince Mohammed in the 1970s as a deejay. He recorded with Joe Gibbs over the Dennis Brown "How could I leave" instrumental, released an album with General Echo, and had a hit in Jamaica with "40 Leg Dread." Nooks concentrated on singing starting in the 80s but it was not until 1997 that he released a successful singing album. After 2001 he began singing mostly gospel music. Norris Man now grew up in the Trench Town area of Jamaica where Bob Marley and the Wailers hail from. He started performing on local sound systems at age 10 deejaying over Studio One riddims. He was small they would put him to stand on top of a Guinness crate and let him get a few songs in. He was actually quite good at it. He started recording at age 22. His first full-length album entitled "Persistence" was released in 1997 on VP records. He linked up with Anthony B and the Star Trail records camp around this time and eventually started touring extensively, taking on stages in California, then Africa, and Europe. Jah Mason also known as Fire Mason was born in the early 70s in the parish of Manchester and grew up in a Christian family. He began working with Junior Reid's JR record label in 1995. He joined the Bobo Shanti order of the Rastafari movement. After linking up with the David House Records group got his career took off with the single "my princess gone" among others. He made guest appearances on Singles with his friend Jah Cure and from the mid-nineties through the 2000s Jah Mason released at least one album every year.

82 - Reggae Lover Podcast - Repatriation

Repatriation is the return of someone to their own country, either voluntary or involuntary. In a financial sense its the sending of money back to one's own country of origin. I previously recorded this mix and was planning to delete it because it did not meet my high technical standard. Then the S---hole comments happened. The president of the United States verbally assaulted beloved Haiti and the beloved continent of Africa. Please look up Ivan Van Sertima (They came before Columbus) and Marcus Garvey. Hopefully, many of you listening will become, or already are, strong, inspirational black leaders because that's what we need. We need to disseminate information about our history which has been cut off, ripped away, burned, and destroyed. Our oral tradition was stopped by design. Africa is the motherland. Africa is our Homeland. I am using reggae music to teach and as you listen to the songs in this mix and you know it's a very spiritual thing. You know it's very cultural. Much respect goes to all the singers and players of instruments for channeling the power in this wonderful music. Reggae is a language to communicate with all people around the world.

This episode is an example of reggae's power and evidence of message music continuing to come out of Jamaica in "dancehall" style. It is up to us DJs and Sound System selectors to use our influence to set a tone of consciousness by featuring better music.  We can and should influence artists and producers to clean up their act by not playing low-quality, negative music.  There is an opportunity to strengthen and edify the future generations with our music and I feel obligated to wave that flag.

80 - Reggae Lover Podcast - Spragga Benx Mix

He began his career around 1991. Once known to his friends as "Spaghetti" (tall and slim), but this was later shortened to Spragga. The Benz in his name comes from the sound system for which he used to work for, L.A. Benz, and it is through this that he found his way into the music industry at a Dubplate recording session with Buju Banton. The famed elder DJ was slated to do four tracks for L.A. Benz but only voiced two and suggested that Spragga do the other two. Since he was new to recording, he freestyled a couple of lines of what would then become, "Love Mi Gun", a popular tune. Hailing from Kingston Jamaica, Spragga Benz (born Carlton Grant) has been an icon of the local dancehall culture since the early 90's. He made his first appearance on the scene as an assistant DJ for Ricky Villa and the La Benz Sound System. It didn't take long before he had the chance to put some of his tunes on tracks like, "Love Mi Gun" and the lascivious "Jack It Up" which became instant underground classics. The re-release of the latter on a wider level, plus other tracks such as "Could A Deal" and "Girls Hooray" boosted his profile even further as Spragga Benz set out to become one of the hottest names within the dancehall scene of the decade. A subsequent deal with major label Capitol Records brought his sound outside Jamaica, and his music wasn't only opening up to brand new audiences, but also to brand new musical frontiers. Back in Jamaica, Spragga continues to release chart topping singles and collaborated with a host of talented local and international artists. Spragga set out to debut as an actor, becoming involved in influential productions such as, "Brooklyn Babylon" and gangster story, "Shottas". The film Shottas, co-starring Kymani Marley, Paul Campbell and Louie Rankin propelled Spragga's career to new heights. Spragga Benz has always been a philanthropist at heart. His humanitarian ways have been noted from the very beginning of his career when he started the "Stay In School" program back in the 90's, which provided help for needy students in his hometown. In honor of the untimely death of his first born son, Carlton "Carlyle" Grant, Jr., Spragga started a second organization, "The Carlyle Foundation", a program which currently provides scholarships and computers to excelling Jamaican students.

74 - Reggae Lover Podcast - The Top Reggae Bands of All Time

74 - Reggae Lover Podcast - Top reggae bands of all time, not including the Wailers. I curated some of the biggest hits from legendary bands: Third World, Israel Vibration, Inner Circle, Aswad, Black Uhuru, and Steel Pulse - groups who have presented fabulous reggae music performances and recordings for nearly half a century. Third World is a Jamaican reggae band formed in 1973. Their sound is influenced by soul, funk and disco. Although it has undergone several line-up changes, Stephen "Cat" Coore and Richard Daley have been constant members. Steel Pulse are a roots reggae musical band, from the Handsworth area of Birmingham, England, which has a large number of Afro-Caribbean, Indian and other Asian migrants. They originally formed at Handsworth Wood Boys School - composed of David Hinds (lead vocals, guitar), Basil Gabbidon (lead guitar, vocals), and Ronald McQueen (bass); along with Basil's brother Colin briefly on drums. Steel Pulse were the first non-Jamaican act to win the Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album. Black Uhuru are a Jamaican reggae group formed in 1972, initially as Uhuru (Swahili for 'freedom'). The group has undergone several line-up changes over the years, with Derrick "Duckie" Simpson as the mainstay. They had their most successful period in the 1980s, with their album Anthem winning the first ever Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album in 1985. Aswad is a long-lasting British reggae group, noted for adding strong R&B and soul influences to the reggae sound.[2] They have been performing since the mid-1970s, having released a total of 21 albums. "Aswad" means "black" in Arabic. Inner Circle are a Jamaican reggae group. The group was originally called The Inner Circle Band and formed in 1968. The band achieved major success in the 1970s with Jacob Miller as their lead singer, but split up after his death in 1980. They reformed in 1986 and had a major hit with the 1987 song "Bad Boys", which serves as the theme song for the long running Spike (formerly Fox Network) television program COPS.[1] They are also well known for their song "Sweat (A La La La La Long)," a big hit in the U.S. in the early 1990s. The band is known for blending pop and rock with reggae. Israel Vibration are a reggae harmony group, originating from Kingston, Jamaica. Lascelle "Wiss" Bulgin, Albert "Apple Gabriel" Craig, and Cecil "Skelly" Spence all overcame childhood polio, and went on to be one of the most successful roots groups to form in Jamaica in the 1970s. The trio initially met as children at a rehabilitation center. I would also want to make mention of bands like Fab 5, UB40, Big Mountain, SOJA, Tribal Seeds, Raging Fyah, and there are and have been 1000’s of musical ensembles that dedicated themselves to pushing the reggae music envelope. Big ups to all singers and players of instruments. Apple Podcast (iTunes) link: Stitcher Radio link: Google Play link: TuneIn Radio link: this podcast at — Inquiries: & Opt-Out:

68 - Reggae Lover Podcast - Real Rock Mix

The best real rock riddim mix you ever heard? Take a listen. The Crown Prince of Reggae, Dennis Emmanuel Brown kicks off the mix and closes it out with the same song in a different style. The Real Rock Riddim is the most versioned reggae Riddim and the most sampled reggae instrumental in history. The original was played in 1967 by one of Coxsone Dodd’s session bands at Studio One, the Sound Dimension band. Ever since then it's been a foundation instrumental for dancehall and reggae. The real rock is just a part of Reggae music that is never going to stop. You are going to hear that beat in movies, on your radio, on your mix tapes, and in your parties. I kept the mix short and spicy so it doesn’t get boring. If you love reggae music and have been listening from back in the days, then this should be nostalgic for you.

The Shank I Sheck originally was a 1964/1965 Ska instrumental by Baba Brooks with production by King Edward on the Rio Records label. Rio is a subsidiary of Direct Records Ltd. and later Doctor Bird which like the other top Jamaican labels of the 1960’s had most of their releases distributed by Trojan Records. There have been hundreds of songs released on various versions of this instrumental over the decades with many top rated hits peaking in the 1980s and 1990s. The riddim track was a favorite for deejays and singers to perform over and a huge dub plate riddim for sound system selectors to record dub plates on as well.

66 - Reggae Lover Podcast - Diseases Riddim Mix

The Diseases riddim, which is sometimes referred to or known as the Golden Hen riddim. I call it the Worries in the Dance Riddim, but the original version of the instrumental was used for the song entitled "Mad Mad" produced in the 1960s by Coxsone Dodd for his Studio One label featuring Alton Ellis on the main vocals. Therefore the original name of this riddim is Mad Mad. This mix starts with Mad Mad by Alton Ellis and goes all the way to Sizzla in the end. I will publish the Track list later perhaps.

There’s a time and place for everything. For every mood, there is a fitting reggae song. I believe in setting the right vibe using the right music. In that same vein, though Beres Hammond is known mostly for excellence in lovers rock, he is not a one-dimensional singer. Beres has many hits in the category of roots, reality, and culture. He has voiced songs simply championing dancehall and sound system culture. He has made political statements and showed his spiritual and philosophical sides on many records. This mix goes into the many moods of Beres. Beres Roots Playlist: Nothing No Go So Ain’t It Good To Know ft.

Rebel with a cause, Jamaican deejay, the music of Josey Wales featured in an exclusive mix. Josey Wales is one of my favorite original deejays. With a career starting in the late 1970s, Josey came to notoriety performing live on U-Roy's King Sturgav sound system. He recorded some of his biggest hits for producer Henry "Junjo" Lawe's Volcano record label and was a dominant figure while touring with the Volcano sound system. Wales is considered to be one of the best dancehall toasters of the 1980s dancehall era. A confident entertainer with a powerful presence on stage, Josey Wale's voice was rough and gritty. His lyrics embodied the content of a street-side reporter, comedian, and motivational speaker. Josey Wales Playlist: Rebel With A Cause ft.

61 - Reggae Lover Podcast - Original Vintage Ska

This episode starts with early rocksteady then goes back in time to original vintage ska.   For those who are not familiar with ska, I will attempt to give you a brief history. Ska music originated in Jamaica in the 1950s and became popular in the 1960s. When you listen to ska lyrics and melodies you must keep a few things in mind: 1 - Ska had an uptempo beat for dancing and required very energetic dance moves. It's based on Mento (Jamaican folk music) and Caribbean Calypso mixed with classic American R&B. 2 - Jamaica gained independence from Great Britain in 1962 with ska as the soundtrack. This music is the island's 1st true ‘pop' genre and there is a sense of new national pride in some of the lyrics. 3 - An influx of youth moved from outlying areas of the island to Kingston to look for work. Unable to make a living, many teens resorted to illegal activities. This set the stage for what became known as the “rude boy” subculture, another major source of lyrics in early ska. In the late 1960s the pace of the ska beat slowed down and a new, slower genre called rocksteady emerged. Rocksteady only remained popular from 1966 to 1968. Then reggae music hit the town and spread like wildfire.   Ska caught on in the British market from 1960 to 1967. Many British ska record labels popped up on the scene releasing music that featured Jamaican artists and musicians. The skinhead and punk communities also embraced the music. Ska experienced a revival with a second wave of popularity driven by UK bands in the 1970s.  Traditional ska transformed with the hard edge of punk rock among other influences.   The third wave of popularity began in the 1980s and continued into the 1990s. By then most continents had a growing ska presence. Ska bands such as No Doubt, Sublime, and Fishbone led the way in the United States and had major commercial success.   Playlist: Johnny Clarke - Move Out of Babylon Burning Spear - Marcus Garvey Carl Dawkins - Baby I Love You Derrick Morgan - Tougher Than Tough Peter Tosh and The Soulmates - Rudie’s Medley Desmond Dekker - 007 (Shanty Town) Lloyd Robinson - No More Trouble Alton Ellis and The Flames - Cry Tough Alton Ellis and The Flames - Blessing of Love Hopeton Lewis - Take It Easy Alton Ellis - Girl I’ve Got a Date U-Roy - Wake the Town U-Roy - I Can’t Love Another Ken Boothe - The Train is Coming Bob Andy - I’ve Got to Go Back Home Delroy Wilson - Dancing Mood Jimmy Cliff - The Harder They Come Paragons - Happy Go Lucky Girl Eric Morris - If I Didn’t Love You The Melodians - Rivers of Babylon Stranger Cole - Rough and Tough Theophilus Beckford - Easy Snappin’ Bob and Marcia - Young Gifted and Black Prince Buster - Hard Man Fe Dead The Maytals - Six and Seven Books of Moses The Skatalites - Guns of Navarone Derrick Morgan - Forward March Prince Buster - Al Capone Derrick Morgan - The Hop Derrick Morgan - Housewives Choice Don Drummond - Man in the Street The Folkes Brothers - Oh Carolina Bob Marley - Judge Not Jimmy Cliff - Miss Jamaica Alton Ellis and The Flames - Dance Crasher Justin Hinds and The Dominoes - Carry Go Bring Come The Wailers - Simmer Down Laurel Aitken - Boogie in My Bones Clancy Eccles - Sammy No Dead Baba Brooks - Girl’s Town Ska Owen Gray - Midnight Track Millie Small - My Boy Lollipop Apple Podcast (iTunes) link: Stitcher Radio link: Google Play link: this podcast at — Inquiries: & Opt-Out:

60 - Reggae Lover Podcast - More Fire

It was a time when Bounty Killer was given the title “Poor People Governor” and had a streak of hit songs banned from radio airplay in Jamaica because he spoke out against corruption and divisiveness in political policies and sang about ineptitude and abuse by local law enforcement. There was a resurgence of lyrical protest songs uniting and re-energizing the dancehall followers in the streets of Jamaica with positive messages earning the biggest crowd responses. Buju Banton, who emerged as the “Voice of Jamaica” delivered words of wisdom and warning to his fan base and his lyrical ideals deepened right along with his Rastafarian faith. The same went for Capleton who was dominant and was dubbed “The Fire Man.” Capleton burned the hottest fire with a string of releases that dissected and illustrated all the faults he found with “Babylon system” and during his live stage performances, massive eruptions of energy occurred. Artists like Sizzla, Luciano, and Anthony B were also extremely influential within this conscious movement of the 1990s. The up-tempo (dancehall) riddims being produced in this era of Jamaican music offered very diverse story lines so there were songs about the latest dance moves, gunman tunes, girls anthems, and ganja dedications surrounded by songs about spirituality, African liberation, "burning out" current corrupt government officials and taboo trends, or the struggles of the poor in the ghetto. This mix focuses on the danceable selections of that period that kept it real. Reality tunes, similar in content to the roots reggae standards of reggae’s foundation era, but aligned with the most popular riddims that dominated the dancehall. This was the music that could be heard at the climax of sound system sessions primarily from the mid-1990s to the early 2000s. Please press play and take a brief trip back to “fire time.” More Fire!

59 - Reggae Lover Podcast - Give Thanks

Reggae music has always been a beacon of light for those in the face of darkness.  With many people around the world facing crisis situations, I was inspired to scrap the mix that was lined up for release this week and instead build an episode that could refresh, uplift, and inspire positivity for those who face the hardest of times.  Let this be your soundtrack as you work or study and repeat as necessary for positive energy, healing, inspiration, and success.   The first song in this mix sets the tone and captures the overall theme of Reggae Lover Podcast episode 59 quite well.  On this initial track which was produced by Tony English and Daddy Earl, singer Anthony Malvo shows his diversity.  To follow, other songs simply reminding us to give thanks and to praise God are showcased from artists like Junior Reid, Chronixx, Assassin, Gappy Ranks, Sizzla, Gramps Morgan, and Bushman.   Sanchez sings "Amazing Grace" and tells us not to disrespect the Man with the handle, Tenor Saw asks who is gonna help him praise Jehova and Tony Curtis exclaims that his God is real.  Garnet Silk sings a few prayers as soulfully as only he can, while Beres Hammond poses the questions "Do you pray for the homeless in the street, and for the innocent's blood to stop running?"  Anthony B cries that you should remember to put God above your car and your bling, and the Crown Prince of Reggae, Dennis Emmanuel Brown asks God to bless our souls.   To counteract the effects of overwhelming guilty, fearful, and angry emotions that stem from today's mainstream media and entertainment outlets with their shocking sensationalism, hyper-sexualization, and promotion of negativity, Reggae Lover Podcast 59 offers God bless reggae music and a reminder that we have the power to tap into higher levels of consciousness.  Let's give thanks!   Playlist: Anthony Malvo - Give Thanks Sanchez - Never Dis The Man Donna Marie - Bless His Holy Name Tenor Saw - Who's Gonna Help Me Praise Garnet Silk - Bless Me Tony Curtis - My God Is Real Bushman - Fill My Cup Sanchez - Amazing Grace Garnet Silk - Fill Us Up With Your Mercy Chronixx - Beat and A Mic Little Twitch - Devil Send You Come Spragga Benz - Love God and Prosper Junior Reid - Give Thanks Beres Hammond - Do You Pray Garnet Silk - Lord Watch Over Our Shoulders Anthony B - God Above Everything Etana - The Prayer Xodus - Give Thanks Assassin - Give Thanks Sizzla - Thanks and Praise to the Creator Delly Ranx - Jah Jah A Mi Everything Gappy Ranks - Thanks and Praise Garnet Silk - Blessed Be the Almighty Richie Stephens - God Is On My Side Assassin - Only God Knows Gappy Ranks - Lord Have Mercy Bushman - It's So Easy G-Whizz - God A Di Boss Bugle - Prayer Chronixx - Thanks and Praise Chaka Demus - Holy Book  Dennis Brown - God Bless My Soul Gary Minott - Seek God Gramps Morgan - The Almighty APPLE PODCAST: SUBSCRIBE OR LISTEN VIA  ITUNES, GOOGLE PLAY MUSIC: SUBSCRIBE OR LISTEN HERE. this podcast at — Inquiries: & Opt-Out:

58 - Reggae Lover Podcast - Frankie Paul Tribute

Frankie Paul, the late great dancehall icon sang many classic tunes that will forever extend his legacy. I was inspired to pay tribute to FP because of his beloved voice and his great body of work in the music industry, but unfortunately, he passed away prior to this episode being released. If you are missing Frankie Paul, go ahead and listen to this mix for some upliftment and celebrate our fallen general. Buy his music, share it, and play it. Look into his life story if you are unfamiliar. You will see that foundation reggae artists and musicians do not get their proper due. In far too many cases their careers are “unsung” and their contributions are underrated and forgotten. My thoughts and prayers go out to Frankie Paul’s family and loved ones and I hope that he receives as much recognition as he deserves for being one of the quintessential figures in the history of reggae, Jamaica’s greatest claim to fame. There are many other trailblazers that need to be highlighted and honored. Thank you for taking some time out to download or stream Reggae Lover Podcast Episode 58, a Tribute to Frankie Paul, and a dedication to the reggae lover in you.

57 - Reggae Lover Podcast - Best of Sanchez Lovers Rock

Known as Jamaica's Song Bird and the Prince of Lovers Rock, who is more deserving of a tribute than Sanchez?If you're into reggae music and of a certain age, then Sanchez is probably one of your favorite singers. With a hit-making career that began in the 1980s with a cover of "Lady in Red," this singer has done it all musically and maintained a classy image throughout. His R&B covers can erase all former knowledge of the original songs.I have witnessed Sanchez walk onto the stage to close shows and capture the hearts of the crowd by singing just a few notes. As I mentioned in the outro of Episode 57, there are many additional hit songs that could have gone into this such as his combination with Bounty Killer, but I wanted to keep the program close to an hour in length. I could go on, but I'll spare you the words. It brings me great pleasure to present the Reggae Lover Podcast's Best of Sanchez Lovers Rock mix.Support this podcast at — Inquiries: & Opt-Out:

Barrington Levy is one of the only reggae singers to have great success throughout the entire decade of the the 1980s. He recorded prolifically with many of his releases topping charts in Jamaica and the UK while he maintained his relevance in the dancehall from then until now. A Reggae Lover Podcast listener suggested that I feature Barrington’s work, so I have selected this portion of tunes which highlights some of my favorite reality tunes and features many of the Joe Gibbs and Volcano roots recordings.

43 - Reggae Lover Podcast - Original Dancehall Style: DJs from the days of Studio One

Hear some essential works from the 60s and 70s by the predecessors of rappers and today’s dancehall artists. Who was the first DJ (dancehall deejay)? This is often debated and I’m not going to get into the argument, but I personally credit U-Roy as the DJ daddy. If Daddy U-Roy wasn’t the 1st, then he certainly had the earliest and largest impact with toasting (rapping) over previously recorded instrumentals in the live dancehall setting. Coxsone Dodd, among many other innovations to his credit, pioneered the recording and production of DJs at Studio One. This mix merely touches upon some of this important dancehall history and I intend to thoroughly exhibit more of the talented foundation artists in future episodes of the Reggae Lover Podcast. There are too many DJs to name who rose to prominence by delivering rhymes over beats on the Jamaican music scene long before The Sugar Hill Gang's 'Rapper’s Delight' was released in 1979 as the first ever rap record.

36 - Reggae Lover Podcast - Stalag meets Sleng Teng

Show Notes It’s brings me great pleasure to release this episode which features two riddims that were suggested by my listeners: the Stalag version and the Sleng Teng rhythm. If you have ever been to a reggae dance or concert, you have definitely heard songs on one or both of these legendary riddim tracks which have had a dominating prominence in the dancehall for three decades. I selected this 22 song playlist out of the hundreds of tunes that have been recorded over these versions. The mix is comprised mostly of the original cuts produced by Winston “Techniques” Riley and Lloyd ‘King Jammy’ James. Please submit playlist suggestions and feedback to [email protected]. History In Jamaica, the Stalag version (or Stalag riddim) is a popular reggae rhythm, which came to prominence in the 1970s. It was originally written and performed as "Stalag 17" (named after the 1953 war film) by Ansell Collins, and released by Winston Riley's Techniques record label in 1973. It was mainly used for dub instrumental versions, often b-sides of records. The rhythm also influenced early hip-hop, and can be discerned on Public Enemy's hit 'Don't Believe the Hype' as well as on Too Short's Blowjob Betty. Sleng Teng is the name given to the first fully computerized riddim in Jamaican music. The riddim, which was created by the collaboration between King Jammy and Wayne Smith, was titled "Under Mi Sleng Teng". Wayne Smith found the computerized sound in Noel Davey's keyboard, and together he and Davey arranged the riddim, slowed it down, matched it to Smith's key, and rehearsed on it with lyrics inspired by Barrington Levy's "Under Mi Sensi" and Yellowman's "Under me fat ting”, before taking it to Jammy's studio in late 1984. The riddim itself is apparently an attempt to recreate Eddie Cochran's 1959 rockabilly song "Somethin' Else." It is a pattern found in the Casio MT-40 home keyboard. After the riddim was brought to the studio and Jammy heard it, he then slowed it further and placed piano and a clap on it. Jammy recorded a number of other artists on the original backing track including Tenor Saw (with "Pumpkin Belly"), and Johnny Osbourne (with "Buddy Bye"). The tunes were first unleashed at a now legendary soundclash between Jammy's own sound system and Black Scorpio at Waltham Park Road on February 23, 1985.

37 - Reggae Lover Podcast - A Love I Can Feel aka Tempted To Touch Riddim Mix

This is another listener suggested mix specially prepared for the reggae lover podcast. The 'A Love I Can Feel' rhythm was first released on a vocal by John Holt under the same name in 1970. It was produced by Coxsone Dodd at Studio One and was a sizeable hit. John Holt re-recorded his original vocal a number of times (about once per decade) including for Henry ‘Junjo' Lawes' Volcano label, King Jammy, and the Parish label. The rhythm has been used around 100 times, most frequently by King Jammy and Donovon Germain of Penthouse Records.

We salute a living legend, reggae singer Luciano who has released 21 studio albums over the course of a brilliant 22 year career.

He established himself as a name synonymous with roots reggae and became one the sub-genre’s pillars. This 1 hour mix of 42 songs focuses heavily on Luciano's material from Where There Is Life, and Messenger, which were albums produced by Phillip "Fattis" Burrell and his Xterminator label. His latest album, The Qabalah Man, was released on the 29th of November 2013. Please support this phenomenally talented artist by buying his music/merchandise and patronizing his live concerts.

22 - Reggae Lover Podcast - SuperCat takes Center Stage

Super Cat is a deejay who achieved widespread popularity during the late 1980s and early 1990s dancehall movement. His nickname, "Wild Apache", was given to him by his mentor Early B. He is the elder brother of reggae artist Junior Cat and is considered one of the greatest deejays within the Jamaican dance-hall scene to date. This is not a commercial mix so if your'e looking for collabos with Kriss Kross, Biggie Smalls, and 112 recorded after Cat was signed to Columbia Records, you are in the wrong place. This mix goes back to the roots in the Cockburn Pen / Seaview Gardens section of Kingston and tours through recordings produced by Steely & Clevie, King Jammy's, and his own Wild Apache Productions label. About an hour in length, here is the #ReggaeLover tribute to Super Cat, a major figure in the positive-consciousness dancehall movement.Support this podcast at — Inquiries: & Opt-Out:

16 - Reggae Lover Podcast - King Kong, Half Pint, Tenor Saw and Nitty Gritty

This was a listener requested mix consisting of the biggest tracks from 4 singers: King Kong, Half Pint, Tenor Saw and Nitty Gritty. Ray said he thought these artists sound alike and that called for a mix with their hits. King Kong, Nitty Gritty, Half Pint, Tenor Saw Their voices are easily distinguishable to my ear, but I agree that Tenor Saw and Nitty Gritty sang with a very similar and unique style. King Kong ended up copying that style of vocal delivery, but Half Pint carved out his own lane on the way to enormous success in the 1980s and 90s as a reggae crooner. RIP to Nitty Gritty and Tenor Saw whose lives were cut down way too early. This is a dedication to you and every reggae lover.

20 - Reggae Lover Podcast - Lee 'Scratch' Perry Exclusively

Welcome to Episode 20 of the Reggae Lover Podcast, my first "dubwise" edition. This mix was specially requested by Ras Jamal in Savannah, Georgia and features the musical productions and performances of Lee "Scratch" Perry exclusively. One of the pioneers in the development of dub music and remixing in addition to numerous other innovations in production, Lee 'Scratch' Perry truly paved the way for the EDM, Hip-Hop, and Reggae movements of today. Show Notes. We start off in the 60 - 70 BPM range with The Upsetters' Curly Dub and move into a couple different dub versions of Satisfy My Soul featuring Bob Marley and The Wailers. The Upsetters' Super Ape is up next, leading into a "Vibrate On" medley. Augustus Pablo, Max Romeo, Hugo Blackwood and Dr. Alimantado are featured on the riddim alongside Perry and The Upsetters. A cool blend transitions from there into Bob Marley dub once again with "Live," a Lively Up Yourself dub version and then a Screw Face dub version entitled "Face Man." Junior Murvin can then be heard singing "Roots Train," followed by his massive hit tune "Police And Thieves." I selected 3 tracks from Perry's "Arkology" box set on the same riddim. The voices of Glen DaCosta and Jah Lion are featured in this set along with some wicked Saxophone and the masterful instrumentation of Lee Perry dubbing out on the board. For the next few tracks I go into the Jungle Dub album, my favorite album of Perry's work. The very heavy-weight Super Ape album, Ras Jamal's highest rated Scratch Perry album is also a focal point of this mix. Other noteable selections served up are "Bad Walking" with Tommy McCook and "I Chase The Devil/Croaking Lizard" with Max Romeo and Prince Jazzbo. Please email me ([email protected]) if you want the full tracklist. My wish is that listeners will hear this mix and go looking for Lee Perry's music to purchase. Dub music should be a part of every reggae lover's music collection.Support this podcast at — Inquiries: & Opt-Out:
