It's really as i said Drew, i'm really not the best informed on that particular genre. I do have a few of the classics in my collection though.
Jimmy Cliff, Marley....the obvious stuff.
By the time that reggae really got popular in the states, {around the late 80's, i'd say} I was quite set in my musical ways. And was far more likely to buy an obscure Mississippi Delta blues artist record. That's a genre that i do know about.
But like most in my age/peer/socio-economic/neighborhood group in New York of the 70's....was more likely to hear Reggae via the ERIC's route.
I didn't grow up a rastafarian....and i don't pretend to either.
Sir Richard Burton{of the Arabian Night's translation, not the actor}
is qouted as having said: "if you want to know a man, look at his library"
That's as close as i can remember the qoute. But it's true.
