The first major account of the history of reggae, black music journalist Lloyd Bradley describes its origins and development in Jamaica, from ska to rock-steady to dub and then to reggae itself, a local music which conquered the world. There are many extraordinary stories about characters like Prince Buster, King Tubby and Bob Marley. But this is more than a book of music history: it relates the story of reggae to the whole history of Jamaica, from colonial island to troubled independence, and Jamaicans, from Kingston to London.

Book Description Viking, London, 2000. Paperback. 1st Ed.. 23.5 x 15 cms. 572 pp. A fascinating book. Reggae music has come down from slavery. To get rid of their frustrations, and to lift their spirits the people sang. It was also a form of entertainment at the weekend, whether in Church, digging the garden, or just outside the house. Its a way of life, a culture and an attitude! Pictorial soft covers, with white and blue lettering. No dj. CONDITION : VG-. Pages and illustrations are clean and bright, but the centre of the book is a little weak. Covers are in good condition as they have been protected with a library wallet. Usual library marks. Ex-Library. Seller Inventory # 017488
