Original Vintage Ska | Reggae Lover Podcast 61

This episode starts with early rocksteady then goes back in time to original vintage ska.

Cover: 61 - Reggae Lover Podcast - Original Vintage Ska

For those who are not familiar with ska, I will attempt to give you a brief history. Ska music originated in Jamaica in the 1950s and became popular in the 1960s. When you listen to ska lyrics and melodies you must keep a few things in mind:

  1. Ska had an uptempo beat for dancing and required very energetic dance moves. It’s based on Mento (Jamaican folk music) and Caribbean Calypso mixed with classic American R&B.
  2.  Jamaica gained independence from Great Britain in 1962 with ska as the soundtrack. This music is the island’s 1st true ‘pop’ genre and there is a sense of new national pride in some of the lyrics.
  3. An influx of youth moved from outlying areas of the island to Kingston to look for work. Unable to make a living, many teens resorted to illegal activities. This set the stage for what became known as the “rude boy” subculture, another major source of lyrics in early ska.

In the late 1960s the pace of the ska beat slowed down and a new, slower genre called rocksteady emerged. Rocksteady only remained popular from 1966 to 1968. Then reggae music hit the town and spread like wildfire.

Ska caught on in the British market from 1960 to 1967. Many British ska record labels popped up on the scene releasing music that featured Jamaican artists and musicians. The skinhead and punk communities also embraced the music. Ska experienced a revival with a second wave of popularity driven by UK bands in the 1970s.  Traditional ska transformed with the hard edge of punk rock among other influences.

The third wave of popularity began in the 1980s and continued into the 1990s. By then most continents had a growing ska presence. Ska bands such as No Doubt, Sublime, and Fishbone led the way in the United States and had major commercial success.

Top Reality Songs in 1990s Reggae Dancehall Music

It was a time when Bounty Killer was given the title “Poor People Governor” and had a streak of hit songs banned from radio airplay in Jamaica because he spoke out against corruption and divisiveness in political policies and sang about ineptitude and abuse by local law enforcement. There was a resurgence of lyrical protest songs uniting and re-energizing the dancehall followers in the streets of Jamaica with positive messages earning the biggest crowd responses. Buju Banton, who emerged as the “Voice of Jamaica” delivered words of wisdom and warning to his fan base and his lyrical ideals deepened right along with his Rastafarian faith.

The same went for Capleton who was dominant and was dubbed “The Fire Man.” Capleton burned the hottest fire with a string of releases that dissected and illustrated all the faults he found with “Babylon system” and during his live stage performances, massive eruptions of energy occurred. Artists such as Sizzla, Luciano, and Anthony B were also extremely influential within this conscious movement of the 1990s.

The up-tempo (dancehall) riddims being produced in this era of Jamaican music offered very diverse story lines so there were songs about the latest dance moves, gunman tunes, girls anthems, and ganja dedications surrounded by songs about spirituality, African liberation, “burning out” current corrupt government officials and taboo trends, or the struggles of the poor in the ghetto.

Frankie Paul Tribute | Reggae Lover Podcast 58

Frankie Paul Tribute | Reggae Lover Podcast 58

Frankie Paul, the late great dancehall icon sang many classic tunes that will forever extend his legacy.

HIGHLANDA SOUND #Reggae 58 - Reggae Lover Podcast - Frankie Paul Tribute

Frankie Paul Tribute | Reggae Lover Podcast 58 | Download links and tracklist are below

I was inspired to pay tribute to FP because of his beloved voice and his great body of work in the music industry, but unfortunately, he passed away prior to this episode being released.  If you are missing Frankie Paul, go ahead and listen to this mix for some upliftment and celebrate our fallen general. Buy his music, share it, and play it. Look into his life story if you are unfamiliar. You will see that foundation reggae artists and musicians do not get their proper due.  In far too many cases their careers are “unsung” and their contributions are underrated and forgotten.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Frankie Paul’s family and loved ones and I hope that he receives as much recognition as he deserves for being one of the quintessential figures in the history of reggae, Jamaica’s greatest claim to fame. There are many other trailblazers that need to be highlighted and honored. Thank you for taking some time out to download or stream Reggae Lover Podcast Episode 58, a Tribute to Frankie Paul, and a dedication to the reggae lover in you.
