Lloyd Bradley (au); Dennis Morris (ph). Jamaica gained independence from Great Britain in 1962 to the electrifying soundtrack of ska. With interviews & comment from reggae legends & people on the ground, Bradley takes up the story from the late 1950s, when sound systems & lawn dances were key to the development of ska. The music traveled overseas with Jamaican musicians & émigrés in the 1960s, & in the 1970s reggae exploded internationally with artists such as Bob Marley, Burning Spear & Third World. Reggae has continued to reinvent itself as a powerful musical & cultural force. Charts the development of reggae, paying tribute to musicians, performers, producers, deejays & fans. Includes over 50 photos, plus 60 images drawn from 40 years of Jamaican music.
