I personally feel Burro is overrated (feel Early B & Nicodemus were better lyricists from the early 80s) but TA I'm glad I'm not the only one recognizing music beyond the 1970s!

Groundation is no good.

Boyo what make yu bad so?
This is a discussion about who are the all time greats of reggae. If you want to dis someone, start your own thread.
Re: Reggae Hall of Fame
February 17, 2006 06:06AM
Seriously tho Stamina, zoki was the one who dissed Groundation. And they belong nowhere near this discussion (respect to them still)...

Re: Reggae Hall of Fame

Well Chimmy, at least the Zoker has a sense of humor, strange tho it may be. Better than just saying someone's no good without any humor let alone an argument to back that up. But you're right still, dissing is dissing & Z did start that up.
Getting forward to the point, every age has its allstars, but if we're starting up a reggae Hall of Fame might as well start from the top. Thus my picks. I never meant for them to be the definitive list, just a starting point.
It still amazes me, though, that that small group of people from the little island started a whole new genre of music that went worldwide.

That's a good point!

And just for the record: Chimino is a tattletale.

WARNING: SERIOUSLY OVERLONG POST aHEAD!
Brain farts in sight
Ready aim fire

Rather than Reggae Hall of Fame
Let’s plop on celebrity culture
Instead celebrate the reggae planet
These next ideas are from Roger Steffens’ Bob Marley exhibit at the Queen Mary site in Long Beach
These are simple brain hooks for responding
Also, I have no name for the alternative since not clever enough
Song title or lyrics haven’t sprung forth yet
My bias is for the roots hall
But prefer the fuller story, so:

Celebration of Reggae
Early influence: African chants, caribe indian music, gospel, blues, R&B, soul, rock
Ska
Rock steady
Reggae
Hit de town
Roots
[take issue: dancehall is for all music given dancing reflects music] so need help here for term, say
Ragga
Slackness
Consciencous
What do we call current Jah music
Seen “modern roots” but these two words should not be next to each other

develop lists based on 4 categories recognizing music biz
category/ the reality: visibility : power ($)
Vocalist - most / who?
Band - lot / barely
Producer/engineer - barely /lot
House, i.e.,Studio - who? /most

Many thanks Rah jah

My love is for the roots hall -
Tribute to the Souljahs
Roots warriors in a Babylon
My top 10 artists in the roots hall: from Marley to Black Uhuru
Very limited time period simply from my own entre,

Marley
Bunny
Tosh
Spear
Augustus Pablo
Gregory I
Abysinians
Izzy Vibes
Killer Miller
Black Uhuru

Weap over not including Culture, Congos, Heptones, Max Romeo, Itals
Gladiators, Johnny Clarke, Wailing Souls, Yabby You, Dennis Brown

Leading way forward since dat time for InI is Luciano
Plus many many more

This listing is a case of total Love and Theft
As InI can never give in return the amount from what I have taken from African Americans (the America’s , not just U.S.) as a white male US American

I apologize but I cannot cut and paste this cartoon that was e-mailed.
A CONCISE HISTORY OF BLACK-WHITE RELATIONS IN THE U.S.A.
1ST panel: white kid: “This is for your own good.” black kid: “NOT!” (he has wrists chained together and chain to ball)
2nd panel: white kid climbing atop black kid atop of diving board.
3rd white kid stepping on black kid and black kid: “GET OFF ME!”
4TH black kid: “Enough’s enough! I’m getting up” while white kid thinks “Phew!”
5th white kid: “I’m real sorry about being racist before. I know better now.”
6th black kid: “Swell, give me a hand up willya?” white kid: “Of course not, that would be reverse racism. Look, if I got up here myself, why can’t you?”

I would have ALTON ELLIS because he started rocksteady dem days Bob Marley wasnt even being played on the radio cus he was still using da ska era and ALTON ELLIS change it up.
Then GREGORY ISAACS real big man.
Then JACKIE MITTOO he was on most of the very 1st reggae tracks.
COXSONE DODD is a theif so i dont rate him,unu dnt know the truth bout dat deh man deh.

SO WHO I WOULD INDUCT ARE= ALTON ELLIS,GREGORY ISAACS AND JACKIE MITTOO.
