Various Artists : Reggae Golden Jubilee: Origins of Jamaican Music – 50th Anniversary

With the new four-disc box set Reggae Golden Jubilee: Origins of Jamaican Music – 50th Anniversary, curated by former Jamaican Prime Minister Edward Seaga,  you are rewarded with 100 of the seminal and most important reggae songs of the past 60-plus years. In a nutshell, you get it all here.

From the earliest recordings of songs captured on tape recorders in shacks high up on the mountains of Jamaica to the latest high-tech recordings coming out of the big island today, this is a musical journey through the heart and soul of a people and a nation. Opening with primitive “Easy Snapping” by Theophilus Beckford and” Dumplins” by Byron Lee & the Dragonaires, and traveling through classic Bob Marley and Peter Tosh tracks up to popular crossover hits like “Pass The Dutchie” by Musical Youth and “Welcome To Jamrock” by Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley,” this collection fills in the gaps in any reggae collector’s wall.

Reggae Golden Jubilee: Origins of Jamaican Music – 50th Anniversary is out now on VP Records.
