To celebrate 50 years of Jamaican independence on 6th August 2012, here is a modest sample of the progression of Jamaican music 1955-1985. Covering calypso/mento, rhythm and blues/shuffle, ska, rocksteady, reggae, roots, rockers, dub and dancehall. A few pops and crackles from the vinyl but that's all part of the trip. Everyone irie? One love.
