I think what GB means that when you are in JA, everything sounds better, and records that have local appeal sometimes loose that appeal after the visit. As an analogy, I would probably have fun trying sill if I was in Sweden, but if I brought it back home I would never eat it. It's an "in the moment" thing.

that's how it was last I was in Jamaica, all the new stuff sounded great with a lot of people appreciating it around you, but once I got home I was playing some of the singles I got that I thought so hot there, and thinking, man, what did I ever see in this song? Sometimes it comes back to me, like I still respect and regard Shabba Ranks and NinjaMan (best in small doses), but when it comes to bobo dreads screaming in my ear...it was ok in the moment at bull bay, but now? Next.

one love

Everything sounds better ( and different) when you are away on holidays. Also, the popularity and the reaction of other people (the audience) is part of the experience of listening to music and the memories it brings....we are a very influentiable bunch...human beings!

I used to buy every tune that was popular on my trips to London in the 80s, especially after heard on big sounds. Many of those tunes sounded crap at home, it wasn't the same experience.
I won't mention titles cause...it will make me unpopular (even more!) on this forum ... :D

I used to come back from JA with armfuls of the latest tunes. To be fair, I still like many of them for nostalgic reasons and because they are good tunes. However, some of them are very annoying now. There was one in particular which mashed up JA and went something like: "Me have 2 fowl a mi yard one a cock and one a hen but the cock a put me Inna problem." Was played everywhere I went in JA and I thought it was a great tune. It sounds ridiculous now in London all these years later.

The answer is to throw in a free trip to JA with every record sale so that it can be enjoyed in the right environment.

Lemme guess: right about the time of Tenor Saws Golden Hen?

If so, its funny how you can date certain records by what was going around lyrically at the time.

All Reggae (except perhaps some music that is purely for Grounation or something like that) is Pop music, as in "popular" music.

Pop probably means commercial in this case.

And "commercial" means it's made to be sold, as again all Reggae put out on record is.

Yes of course but the difference is when something sounds like pop or sounds commercial.
Here's a good or a bad example depending on your perspective: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YEevtQhlJR0
