CD

originally released in 1984, this record includes their biggest hits ‘Boat to Zion’ and ‘Madness’, plus 4 bonus tracks and extensive sleeve notes.

kingston’s teeming ghettos were the acknowledged birthplace of ska, rock steady and reggae, and many of the music’s creators migrated from country districts, including bob marley, who travelled from the parish of st. ann to the zinc fenced, pot holed streets of trench town to find fame and fortune. a number of performers preferred to remain in the tranquillity of the country and a style of reggae, designed for the rural population popularly known as country reggae, typified by a gentler style of rhythm, a less aggressive vocal style and pinpoint harmonies, gradually came into being.
