    1. A cram course for new old ravers You ll need records after this Numerous firsthand accounts, often from the central players Turn it up, a pageturner See also this author s excellent Reggae On CD book Tougher than tough.

    2. Great read There is a lot of quotes and parts of interviews, a lot of storytelling and the book moves at a very slow pace Truly let me feel the vibe in Jamaica at the time At times a bit repetitive and drawn into lenght, though.

    3. This book is great It really got in depth with the genre, and there are many first hand accounts from artists of the era There s a movie that they mention titled The Harder They Come The movie is a depiction of all the aspects of the music i.e artists, producers, sound systems, and sufferation I will be trying to get a copy of this movie because it is said to be a great depiction of the times and music Once reggae music solidified itself as the music of Jamaica, and gained obvious recognition on [...]

    4. Easily the best book I ve read on the subject Bradley looks at the development of skarocksteadyreggae in its historical political context Colonialism, racism, exploitation played major roles in the development of this musical form, Bradley doesn t shy from confronting the harsh realities He goes beyond the obvious to Americans, at least hitmakers to discuss artists sides known to aficionados Spice all this up with on the scene interviews narratives, you ve got what it takes to develop a fascina [...]

    5. Reggae is indistinguishable from rastafarianism and the sociocultural moment that it was all born out of This book puts it all in perfect context it s not just about island vibes and irie and all that shit, but that we re listening to the indigenous music of a truly stranger than fiction culture.

    6. Wish I had time to read all this bookwill definitely come back to it at some point, though Recently I ve returned to some old Trojan records classic rocksteady jams and wanted a quick refresher course on that era in Jamaican musicBradley s book is awesome Full a facts and fun anecdotes Will have to purchase a copy at some point.

    7. As a big fan of Jamaican music of the 60 s and 70 s, I found this to be very informative It connects the dots in the development of ska rocksteady reggae dub and the Rastafarian influence in the music It is sometimes hard to follow But this is a music that like rock musics transition from the 60 s to the 70 s changes markedly every few years The author maintains the chronology well enough.

    8. Very good, not great, book chock full of facts anecdotes The main problem was that the whole thing was a bit dry as a reading experience and I found myself pushing to finish the 500 pages If you re interested in reggae this is a good place to get your history however it will be a mild challenge.

    9. A strictly amazing history of reggae fact filled, broad in analysis, wryly hud, coherent what could one want Plus, it passes my personal test of great music non fiction I know it will be putting a dent in my wallet.

    10. Very thorough study of the history of Reggae music, presented in an almost academic style Tends to assume that the reader already has some familarity with the music, so probably not the best book to start with.

    11. I didn t know a lot about reggae music past Bob Marley until I start collecting Trojan records I figured I d learn about all that music that came before Bob Marley That said most of what I know about Bob Marley I learned from Vh1 s Behind the Music.
