ROUTES OF REGGAE - Our Reggae Top 100 + Dancehall Top 30

Postby o.m. » Fri Jul 26, 2013 1:10 pm

Hi guys, I found a book in 1998 that kinda changed my view on Reggae...The whole introduction and different sections dealing with all the genres is so knowledgeable that I thought you would be interested to know a bit more about this AM under represented genre...At the end of the book there are two magnificent lists created by the two authors that, in my opinion, deserve a place in this database...Click the Look inside on the link I provided at the end of this thread and you'll see from page 232 to 233 the "Our Reggae Top 100" (number 76 til 100 sadly missing on Amazon) and further on page 234 "Dancehall Top 30" (1985 - 1996)...(also missing!) Enjoy ;)
