Default Reggae Intro's

REGGAE


This is a Reggae compilation for those who have limited knowledge of the genre or see it as a genre of music that all sounds the same. With this compilation I have tried to get as varied a cross section of moods and styles as possible and not include the usual suspects. You will hear rock guitar, blues harp, classical guitar, jazz sax, electronica as well as various sub genres of Reggae such as dub, roots and riddim. Please download and enjoy!

TRACKLISTING:

1. MANO NEGRA-BRING THE FIRE
2. BURNING SPEAR-INVASION
3. DUBMATIX-SENSELESS KILLING DUB (Feat. Freddie McGregor)
4. THIEVERY CORPORATION-TRUTH AND RIGHTS
5. ASWAD-ETHIOPIAN RHAPSODY
6. JUNIOR MURVIN-POLICE AND THIEVES (YES The Clash DID cover it!)
7. LEE 'SCRATCH' PERRY and MAD PROFESSOR-25 YEARS ON (crazy riddim on this one!)
8. FREESTYLERS-SIGNS
9. ROCKERS HI-FI-TRANSMISSION CENTRAL
10. 10FT.GANJA PLANT- SWEDISH PRISON

Very good comp.

Especially the second half. I love the Freestylers.

Also Burning Spear is obviously very good.

Why don't you do that too. I'll be a good contribution, if you were serious that is...

Actually Jackhammer this thread title made me think of something.

The actual intro to album EVERY reggae (all types) song starts with the few beats (usually 3-4) of tom hits or bongo's.

It really annoys me, you would think that they would change it up, since theirs only so many different combination's you can have.

Example: EVERY SONG ON EXODUS and countless others by god knows how many artists.

Maybe im missing something but why is this the case. it gets sickening.

I just made this one tonight. Not a whole lot on here most big reggae/dub fans haven't already heard, but sure, probably good for someone to start off with.

1. "Come Mek We Run" by Pablo Moses (from "Revolutionary Dream", 1976)
2. "Cordova" by De Facto (from "Légende Du Scorpion À Quatre Queues", 2001)
3. "Truths And Rights" by Johnny Osbourne (from "Truths And Rights", 1980)
4. "Your Teeth In My Neck" by Scientist (from "Rids The World Of The Evil Curse Of The Vampires", 1981)
5. "Declaration Of Rights" by The Abyssinians (from "Satta Massagana", 1976)
6. "Super Ape" by Lee "Scratch" Perry & The Upsetters (from "Super Ape", 1976)
7. "Life Of Contradiction" by Joe Higgs (from "Life Of Contradiction", 1975)
8. "Workshop (Red, Gold And Green)" by Burning Spear (from "Garvey's Ghost", 1976)

and of course, the obligatory...

9. "Keep On Moving" by Bob Marley & The Wailers (from "African Herbsman", 1973)

Enjoy.
You beauty. A couple of tracks I have'nt heard but the inclusion of The Abbysinnians is win for sure.
