Reggae is Jamaica's only indigenous music, and although the island has a population half the size of London it is the world's third-largest exporter of music. This book details the history of reggae both in Jamaica and in its two other main centres, New York and London, and selects the best buys on CD, covering about 200 acts and over 500 albums. Arranged chronologically, the book takes readers from the evolution of Jamaican R&B into ska, through the rise of rasta and roots reggae in the Seventies and the death of Bob Marley in 1981, up to the emergence of dance-hall reggae, reggae/rap and ragga.
