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.

Book Description Penguin, 2001. Book Condition: New. From the sound system dances of the 1950s to Luciano and Bobby Digital in 2000, this history of Jamaica's music - roots, ska, rocksteady and reggae - is both social and aural history, with contributions from many of the major musicians. Prince Buster has written a foreword, but the last word should go to him: 'A book that knows reggae is serious business, but never forgets you have to dance to it.'. Bookseller Inventory # 224916
