Welcome to Idler's Rest. A meeting place for all that is best in reggae music from around the world. Here you will find music from singers, musicians, producers, and compilations from the record companies. The world of reggae music is vast, it would be impossible to cover everyone at once, so this is a bit by bit approach. Sameway with those that are here. At the moment it might be just a single or an album review but in time it is hoped that a trip to Idler's Rest will provide you with all you need to know about your subject.

Many thanks to John K.Hill (Small Axe - Australia), Charlie Reggae, Tero Kaski and Jim Dooley for their contributions. If you would like to send in a review or some information for consideration please do so at -
