The late sixties witnessed the development and rise to musical dominance of Reggae, with this new, dynamic style rapidly usurping the more languid sound of Rock Steady, which had reigned in Jamaica since 1966.
Early Reggae recordings were noted for their tempo and energy, but by the early seventies, the tempo had slowed significantly, with the mellow vibe commonly associated with the sound gradually established.
In more recent years, the inaugural, high-energy version of the genre that acquired a strong and dedicated following among Britain’s original Skinheads has become accepted as a sub-genre of its own, with the style acquiring the label, ‘Boss Reggae’.
‘This aptly-titled 2CD set highlights 40 of the most popular in the style, and with 18 of the tracks new to CD, this is most definitely the Boss of all Skinhead Reggae collections!
