All credit to Natural Ites for the original, but I actually prefer the Rasites recut: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nR0eZ8w7CKI . Altogether punchier and much more danceable imo.


You're having a giraffe aren't you? It's not a patch on the original.


We're both entitled to our opinion, but in yours, what qualities does the original (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bTgFy70VGYo) have that the recut lacks?

Didn't mean to start a controversy over "Picture on the Wall", so 1st reserve is "Follow Fashion", Misty in Roots.

Pablo Gad - Hard Times

Smiley Culture - Police Officer

Aswad - Warrior Charge

One of my all time favourite albums is Misty in Roots - Live at the Counter Eurovision - though it's hard to pick just one tune from that.

Is not 'british reggae'. Like Dennis Brown voicing over Aswad's Love Fire is not 'jamaican'.

How far do you take it? Barrington Levy and Sugar Minott recorded many songs in the UK. Are these songs British reggae or Jamaican? What about the artists who were born in JA but moved to the UK permanently, is their music British or Jamaican? What about the artists born here to Jamaican parents?

You seem to be saying that if the song is recorded in the UK it is "British". But what if all the musicians are Jamaican? What if all the musicians are British except for one who is Jamaican?

What if the band and the producer are black "British" but identify with Jamaica or Africa?

Or are you saying that only purely a white band based in the UK can be British? What if one or more of the band members are black or mixed race?

As you say, Learoy Green is from South East London so that makes the song "British" enough for me!

As with the Windrush generation are they now British & now not British. Soon all British reggae will be called Brexit Reggae.

If it was put "Top 20 Reggae Tunes Made In Britain" then it makes more sense.
