The Brixton Rat Show on Tilosh Radio, broadcasting outta Budapest.
The next six installments of the Tilos Radio History of Jamaican Music programme. Pure vinyl selection from vintage revival enthusiast Brixton Rat's extensive rarities collection. Nuff Studio One, Treasure Isle and Prince Buster with plenty of commentary on musical trends & developments. The show is ongoing with reggae to follow so watch this space...
As we move out of the ska & into the rock steady era from the second half of 1966... The tempo slow right down nicely as more emphasis is given to vocal harmonies & mellow vibes. Some of the finest songs & performances by some of the greatest artists on some of the most crucial rhythm tracks of all time date from this period, laying foundations for the reggae and dancehall styles to follow right to the present day. An unmistakable reggae sound starts to come in during the middle of 1968 (hear show 1968 part 2).
More thanks go out to Mike. Big show, serious selections... Bless.
