So that’s the summer festivities over for another year from Serbia, Croatia, Spain, Italy to Bestival on the Isle Of Wight, we had big fun didn’t we!
Thanks for all the e-mails regarding my summer season of 10 reggae specials on BBC Radio 2, it was really good to be able to focus on some of the truly great vintage classics that have made reggae famous throughout the world.
As well roll into the autumn watch out for an impressive debut album by the hot new roots rock reggae band from Jamaica, Raging Fyah, the album’s entitled ‘Judgement Day’.
The salute to Gregory Isaacs album entitled “We Remember Gregory..” is indeed a superb set of new recordings by Jamaican artists, by way of paying homage to the man who epitomised ‘cool’.
