But no you certainly didn't waste your time. Speak later.
What course are you doing?

Anyway, lately I've developed a liking for a Jimmy Cliff compilation I have. Would anyone recommend any studio albums of his or reggae albums in general since it's a mostly untouched area of music for me?

I'll be honest, I like what I like and don't have much interest in learning more about what I am not familiar with. Country music, loved by millions but I just don't want to invest my time in finding out why that is. From what I have heard, Reggae pretty much sounds all the same to me... which isn't to say it sucks, I just don't give it enough attention to hear the differences from song song to song.

I will listen to the you tube videos posted though.

Thanks. I've been listening to the first two and I'm liking them so far.

Hello,

New member here and a reggae fan. My favorite group is UB40, they're British but they think they're from Jamaica

They have some good songs, you guys should definitely check them out.

You automatically qualify for the most uninformed music fan ever and you are a stain on the woven cloth of Reggae. UB40 are absolutely awful.

The Toots are one of the early exponents of Roots and definitely worth seeing. I am jealous I have to say.
