Classic Reggae Vocal Harmony Groups - RastFM #LoveReggaeMusic Show #6

#LoveReggaeMusic Show #6 on RastFM 17/06/17

It was open mike night at RastFM as 54 of our favorite reggae vocal groups and bands were brought together for an evening of melodious harmony... Mostly roots vibes with a couple of classic rub-a-dub & lovers selections. JA UK & US-based artists. Features one track by each group with nuff dub version, discomixes and a few deejay cuts help to nice things up. Favorite hit tunes mix it with the usual rareities & obscurities. 
3 hour show. Split into two parts for download.

Focus is on the 2nd great era of harmony groups - mid-70s to mid-80s.  The 1950s & 60s was the golden era and had paved the way with a whole crop of vocal groups enjoying success spearheaded by the likes of the Wailers, Maytals and Paragons. The next generation of groups made the transition to roots, rockers and dancehall styles going forward with the likes of the Gladiators, Culture, Mighty Diamonds & Wailing Souls making the bigtime. Many of the longer established acts went on to make great roots reggae in the 70s and beyond as represented here by the Gaylads, Melodians & Paragons. Its just a shame that outside of the lovers rock scene the style has been much less popular, the odd exception aside, since the late 80s.
