Previously posted to Podcast machine but long deleted, this is a 43 track monster collection of the very best early reggae 45's. 1968, and the soulful Rocksteady has been replaced by the frantic sounds of The Reggay, or Reggae is it became better known. These tracks here represent some of the best early reggae tracks, most were cut in 1968, some are from 69, but these two years bought some incredibly exciting and vibrant music into the world and this is probably my favourite Jamaican music podcast ever. This is a very long podcast but I promise it’s worth the download time. Most of these tracks were released in the Uk at the time and are incredibly hard to find; after buying V Rocket and The Break I didn’t have any change left out of £500! All killer, no filler - enjoy!
