V/A: 'Riot Radio Broadcast: A Journey Through The Trojan Records Vaults With The Dead 60s'
'If you’re looking to learn more about reggae you could do worse than start here'More on
& Donna’s peerless pop nugget ‘Uptown Top Ranking’ (which anyone with even a passing interest in this music will know), progressing through ‘King Tubby Meets Rockers Uptown’ (ditto) and climaxing with The Maytals’ ‘Monkey Man’ (popularised by The Specials and a staple of Amy Winehouse’s live set), this is fairly entry-level stuff, but if you’re looking to learn more about reggae – and really, you should be – you could do a lot worse than start here.
