Joe Morgan - Basement session
Bullwackie (US)

Lloyd Barnes' Bullwackies studio, in the Bronx, surely was the best place to record deep roots reggae outside Jamaica. It's most well known tunes were recorded in the early 80's, when the studio's sound had turned amazingly "Black Arkish". But I'm even more fond of the original, and already particularly mystic sound it had in the 70's. This chronicle of a New York basement party, featuring a fabulous horns line answering Joe Morgan's vocal, is one my favourite from these days.

This is reggae music...

 

Sounds from back in the days. Listed here, in no particular order, are some classics, but mostly obscure songs, that's why I often hardly have any information about the singers. Simply music I love, that's been an important part of my life for years.


I'd love people who don't like reggae, because they feel it sounds boring, or believe it's sunny beach party music, to find this page, and take some time to listen to these songs. Maybe it won't change their point of view, but at least they'll hear for a little while how it really sounds like...


And for those who already know and love this wonderful music, they might discover some interresting items below. I hope so at least.
I keep on adding new singles, so please feel free to come back from time to time...

 

Warning : This music should be played loud, with a whole lotta bass...


PS : I am fully aware I keep using the same enthusiastic adjectives in the songs descriptions. But unfortunately my english vocabulary is limited, and I have always been very bad at curbing my enthusiasm...
