Reggae Lover Podcast #5 Artwork

Super Stars of Reggae (1987-1989)

8

Thanks for joining me on this Reggae Lover journey.  This is the 5th episode of the podcast in and I’m truly thankful for the feedback coming. It has been very encouraging.  Each episode has a brief intro and outro, but I do not talk over the music, nor do I place sound effects over the mixes.  You can actually hear all the songs, the mixing and blending clearly as they are recorded live. Within this episode I feature the Super Star Riddim from 1989, the I Need You Riddim from 1987, a nice Delroy Wilson off the More Ideas Riddim (1988), the Enquirer Riddim from 1988 with Sanchez covering Bobby Brown‘s “My Prerogative,” and finally ending off with Singing Melody and Shabba Ranks on the Gal Yu Look Good riddim.

In these times turn to ‘The Book of Life’

1

One of the reasons I love foundation (reggae) music is because of how the messages brought forth in songs recorded decades ago still can be applied directly to life today. Many of the lyrics and concepts are actually quotes from biblical texts sung over reggae bass lines. The Highlanda mixtape entitled ‘The Book of Life’ is dedicated to such selections from the Finest Years era and offers the wisdom of the ancients to those who will listen. ‘That’s right! If a reality you want, let me hear you shout out Highlanda!’ Listen to the Book of Life, now streaming online at www.highlanda.net. This mix will also be available as an mp3 file for download on demand soon. I welcome your comments and feedback.
