Reggae / Dub Vinyl Record Collection

Before founding the Vintage Vinyl Revival, I hosted a weekly reggae show on KBGA 89.9 FM. Originally called the Rasta Project, the show was renamed out of respect for true Rastafarians. The Roots Rally Sound System aired every Monday from 2003-2005, during which time I explored beyond the surface notion of “Reggae = Bob Marley” and hopefully helped a few people discover, with me, the vast influence and incredible history of the development of Jamaican music including: Mento, Ska, Rocksteady, Skinhead, Rockers, Reggay, DJ Stylee, Dub, Niyabinghi, and deep Roots and Culture. …and no I didn’t forget Dancehall, I just didn’t include it. Rather I chose to focus on the origins of the street-corner sound systems and found the music coming out of the early Kingston dance halls to be much more interesting than the present-day trends. Sorry, I never played Beanie Man or Sizzla on the Roots Rally Sound System, nor will you find any in this collection.

During the course of the show, a pretty substantial collection of reggae vinyl was amassed (helping to propel me towards my obsession with records and the creation of the Vintage Vinyl Revival project).

Most of these records are now SOLD.
