The 12th episode of Ian's House Of Reggae starts
with a serious selection of the late 1970's,
including an interesting Clint Eastwood riding the
Uptown Top Ranking riddim that sound quite
different than the one that made it into the UK
Charts back in the days.
As our host takes us back further in time, he
explains just what we're about to hear in his own
way of "ire enthusiasm" with Jamaican
Reggae and Ska music.
He doesn't ignore the themes that cause the
many Sufferers tunes you can find in Jamaican
Music through-out the decades, things which could
be quite relevant for people who are just staring
to get to know Reggae Music and want to find out
what that great stuff they hear is all about.
One of those themes in the political violence
and the declared peace after countless of people
dies in the war between the rivaling political
parties. The story behind Bob Marley's "One
Love Peace Concert", for example. is very
much related to this as well as the tunes that our
host plays in another section of yet another great
piece of info-tainment!
