RhoDeo 1208 Roots

Hello, we're still on that island with a huge place in the global music catalogue, Jamaica. A production hothouse and they say the Weed makes you slow and lazy-go figure. Without the ganja driven reggae music Jamaica would have remained a Caribbean backwater and dare i say would never have given us Bolt, the fastest man in the world.


Can't get enough of that dub music ? Well here's some more

***** ***** ***** ***** *****
The Revolutionaries were formed in 1975, primarily, to be the house band of Channel One Studios.. This Studio was opened in 1973 by Ernest and Joseph "Joe Joe" Hookim. The main core of The Revolutionaries was formed by Sly Dunbar (bass); Robbie Shakespeare (drums) plus Ansel Collins, Errrol "Tarzan" Nelson and Ossie Hibbert (keyboards). These musicians were also members of Bunny Lee's The Aggrovators. Other members were also Radcliffe "Dougie" Bryan (guitar); Robbie Lynn (keyboards); Uziah "Sticky" Thompson (percussions) and Tommy McCook, Vin Gordon, Herman Marquis (horns). From time to time the bass was played by Bertram "Ranchie" McClean. The style they played was called "Rockers",.that would change the whole Jamaican sound (from roots reggae to rockers, and be imitated in all other productions.

Their line up reads like a who’s who of Jamaican music. Over the years they played on numerous dub albums. They also backed many great artists, most of whom were reggae artists. This would include, Black Uhuru, Gregory Isaacs, John Holt, Culture,The Heptones, Mighty Diamonds, I-Roy, Tapper Zukie, Trinity, U Brown, and French singer-songwriter Serge Gainsbourg.
