Synopsis: 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.
About the Author: Lloyd Bradley has been classically trained as a chef, is a regular marathon runner and was formerly Health & Fitness editor at GQ magazine and Consultant Editor at Men's Health and Runner's World magazines. He is also the author of The Rough Guide to Running and The Rough Guide to Men's Health.
