There’s a time and place for everything. For every mood, there is a fitting reggae song.  I believe in setting the right vibe using the right music. In that same vein, though Beres Hammond is known mostly for excellence in lovers rock, he is not a one-dimensional singer.  Beres has many hits in the category of roots, reality, and culture.  He has voiced songs simply championing dancehall and sound system culture.  He has made political statements and showed his spiritual and philosophical sides on many records.

Give Thanks | Reggae Lover Podcast 59

Reggae music has always been a beacon of light for those in the face of darkness.

With many people around the world facing crisis situations, I was inspired to scrap the mix that was lined up for release this week and instead build an episode that could refresh, uplift, and inspire positivity for those who face the hardest of times.  Let this be your soundtrack as you work or study and repeat as necessary for positive energy, healing, stress relief, inspiration, and success.

Reggae music has always been a beacon of light for those in the face of darkness.

The first song in this mix sets the tone and captures the overall theme of Reggae Lover Podcast #59 quite well.  On this initial trackwhich was produced by Tony English and Daddy Earl, singer Anthony Malvo shows his diversity.  To follow, other songs simply reminding us to give thanks and to praise God are showcased from artists like Junior Reid, Chronixx, Assassin, Gappy Ranks, Sizzla, Gramps Morgan, and Bushman.

Sanchez sings “Amazing Grace” and tells us not to disrespect the Man with the handle, Tenor Saw asks who is gonna help him praise Jehova and Tony Curtis exclaims that his God is real.  Garnet Silk sings a few prayers as soulfully as only he can, while Beres Hammond poses the questions “Do you pray for the homeless in the street, and for the innocent’s blood to stop running?”  Anthony B cries that you should remember to put God above your car and your bling, and the Crown Prince of Reggae, Dennis Emmanuel Brown asks God to bless our souls.
