Interviews with reggae artists were very rare events. That changed with the arrival of Blues and Soul, Black Music and Black Echoes, back in the early to mid seventies. For the very first time, reggae music was given some of the coverage it fully deserved people like Chris Lane, Penny Reel, Carl Gayle and Dave Hendley wrote about the music with genuine interest and respect.
Some thirty years later, reggae is still lacking the coverage it deserves in the music press. Writers like John Masouri at 'Echoes' does a very good job - together with writers like Chuck Foster at the Reggae And African Beat, and Steve Milne at Full Watts also have made massive contribututions aided by other reggae writers like Jim Dooley and Carter Van Pelt. More recently the arrival of the German based English language 'Riddim' is very good news. But if you are looking for information on your favourite reggae artist, the chances are is that you will turn to the internet.
Although there is a problem. Even with powerful search engine tools like Google - information on reggae sometimes seems to get lost. Hence this webpage, and all the links. Hopefully this will make it a little easier to find what you are looking for.
