I think it was maybe 1978 or '79 when I first started listening to reggae music. All these years later I still need to get my rasta fix. Spring and summer just seem to bring out that vibe. Just yesterday I put on Burning Spear and Peter Tosh. Both bring back good memories. The first time I saw Burning Spear was in Montego Bay Jamaica in 1983. It was the Reggae Sunsplash, 4 nights from dusk till dawn of the best grooves you could ever want to hear. The Overproof rum, the ganja and a little help from my doc. before I left allowed for the best possible vacation. These are some of the hard copy memories of my reggae years, hope you like 'em. Peace-Irie!!

      Yeah moncrieff, it's been a fun trip seeing all the music I have. I love the Clash and dub stylee! If you have the chance go to Jamaica, it's a beautiful place.

      What a fantastic experience!! Right place, right time. Man, I wished I had been there. It's funny, punk brought me to roots reggae (via the Clash) and reggae brought me to its darker side, dub, which I'm listening practically non-stop for the last two years. I'll try to go to Jamaica soon. I guess, you can get it if you really want :)
