The music i have brings joy and pleasure and memories to me ,i don't have 1,000of records i just have what i have,one time i would crave for music,but now it comes to i in due season.I find that music i had i miss, but i know the people who have them love them still ,and thoses who stole them ,thay must really have wanted them ,so it go's ,for as you lose one ,you gain another, big respect to Man like Jah bill ,dave hendley, dougie who have shared music with me ,and i know others do the same .I have seen people with 1,000 of records thay don't touch them ,you can't play them, that to me is sad ,the great thing about reggae is there is so much that a man with a few tunes might have some thing good you have never heard ,so feel no way ,i have been around this music since late 6ots but the more you think you know, is the less you know .people on theses boards have a great knowledge and it good to learn.Gordon there were hard times ,but man must go through tribulation to know themselves for thats what makes you know who you are and where you are going,so for sum it's a burden,for others its a revelation so feel no way

music is "made" to sell, is what your saying bill?

so the cow is born for the slaughter house?the egg is layed for the breakfast table?the whale swims the sea, so people can have cosmetics?


Reggae means "to the king"

His Imperial Majesty Emporer Haile I Selassie I the King.

>music is "made" to sell, is what your saying bill?

i guess im having a hard time communicating because im not going to suggest you have a hard time reading.

RECORDS are made to sell. i thought i made that pretty clear in my initial post but again, it must be me.

oh by the way, i dont know where you get this idea that "reggae means 'to the king'". in fact, "reggae" doesnt have anything intrinsicly to do with rastafari, it was rasta who adopted reggae, not the rastas who invented reggae. history shows it to be true. in fact many reggae producers fought against rasta in the early days of reggae.

and let me also add, if it werent for reggae RECORDS, and the market that supports producing more reggae records, none of us would have ever heard of "reggae" because the only ones hearing it or playing it would be in the ghettos or hills of jamaica.

As far as Jamaican record buyers were concerned, the origin of the word reggae was the 1968 Pyramid single by Toots and the Maytals "Do the Reggay" (sic). Other possibilities as to the origin of the word include Regga, the name of a Bantu speaking tribe on Lake Tanganyika and a corruption of "streggae," which is Kingston street slang for prostitute. According to Bob Marley, the word is Spanish in origin, meaning "the king’s music" but according to veteran session musicians the word is a description of the beat itself. Hux Brown of the Skatalites and lead guitarist on Paul Simon’s 1972 hit "Mother and Child Reunion" says that it is "just a fun, joke kinda word that means ragged rhythm and the body feeling."

Jah Bill,

I think you might be missing the something here. What you have said is true, but it is not complete (at least that is what I think). Growing up Black in the fine country is not the easiest thing, but it meant something to me in 89 to see Public Enemy chanting Fight the Power over the mainstream airwaves. The same thing an be said of the many youth in JA and abroad. It means something to have cats like Bounty repping for them. To see someone like S. Paul in the video doing the same dances that they are doing in JA. SOme youth might never be able to afford the record, but they still hear it over the radio. The DJ still spins the record at the dance. In many cases it is living "vicariously" spelling is not right, throught the DJ that you most identify with. Giving a voice to those that do not have one is definetly one aspect of the music of "sufferahs" all over the world. I would bet that most people who listen to BMW never bought one of their records.

Change over time, aka Evolution. All Things
Change over time. Things, Places, Life forms.
Meanings and the music behind them.
What might have been, was or meant 30 years ago Might have totally have changed, especially with evermore Conscious generations of humans coming into this reality every day.
All tings change and soon nothing will matter. so lets live in the now.
Make peace amoungst matters quit the chuckeling chatters of what was true.
what is truth
and what will be the next highest truth?
peace, love and disagreements

true truth does not change, only the way it is viewed. those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it. we see the truth of that statement every day in the news.

You can say that again. It can be sugar-coated, viewed in the realm of optimism/pessimism, even denied. But in the end truth is truth.

Re: Reggae Snobs
April 05, 2005 09:43PM
that statement is rediculous, (sorry no meanness intended) defining something with itself leads you no where. For instance "red is red" is a worthless statement to someone who doesnt already know. In which case they would not require a definition. It is like explaining color to one who is born blind. Quite literally Non-Sense
Re: Reggae Snobs
April 05, 2005 09:50PM
But when you have most humans trying to perceive it as anything but red, because deep down they want it to be anything BUT red, it makes the most sense.

So you feel truth is ALL perception? hmmm

Re: Reggae Snobs
April 05, 2005 10:14PM
lt me make another run at this. The "Truth" as it is being spoken of is like an entity that exists outside of the human mind that we experience. I will FORward this thought to you. There is nothing that can be known outside of human experince. If you disagree you will be able to quicly disprove this. Tell me something about "that which has never been experienced"? This abstract notion of truth that remains the same, what can be said of this? If it is external then it is physical, both by definition and by implication. If it is physical it has form and extension (shape). How big is it? Where is it at? remember that every claim we make has implications we can't just say something and then ignore the "unspoken" meaning. The Truth is not external anymore than "red" is "out there" It is all "in here". Please don't equate this with some sort of spineless reletavism.
