The Diamonds - Jo Jo ask about it
Upsetter

Lee Perry behind the desk for a lovely alternate mix of the Mighty Diamonds' beautiful "Talk about it". This is one of their early recordings, before getting big with the classic "I need a roof" album. To me, these are the sweetest falsetto harmonies on the island.

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...
