Bass Culture: When Reggae Was King

Lloyd Bradley



In his pioneering narrative on the evolution of reggae, Lloyd Bradley, a renowned black music journalist, delves into the roots and progression of this genre in Jamaica. From the early days of ska to the rhythms of rock-steady and the innovative sounds of dub leading to the global phenomenon of reggae, Bradley unveils a captivating journey. Beyond documenting the iconic figures like Prince Buster, King Tubby, and Bob Marley, this book interweaves the tale of reggae with Jamaica’s historical narrative—from its colonial past to its struggle for independence—and the vibrant lives of Jamaicans from Kingston to London.
