Sweet Lovers Music is no rarity within Reggae
Music. From X-rated Dancehall (often referred to
as "slackness") to sweet romance and
everything in between, there is a Reggae tune
And when there is one, there are many!
Of course, there is Gregory "Cool
Ruler" Isaacs, whose name is more or less synonymous
with Lover's Rock. There is Lincoln
"Sugar" Minott, whose sweet soulful
voice will out-sing just about any so-called
superstar. There is Echo Minott, too, who has the
dubious honor to have first coined the phrase
"slackness" in one of his releases.
Of course they are all present in the 11th
episode of DJ Dr. Tahl's excellent podcast,
alongside a whole host of known and lesser known
artists. There is even a track by Marvin Gaye,
riding the "Waiting in Vain" riddim.
