"THE KING OF REGGAE" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)
WWW, November 15 2009 - Bob Marley has done a lot for Jamaica, for Reggae, and indeed for the people of the world. Especially those that suffer, hungering for righteousness which -as Bob Marley believed- will one day cover the earth.
He's not called the King of Reggae for nothing. As he popularized Reggae by using American musicians who would spice up the Roots music, millions were introduced to a music that would stick with them for the rest of their lives.
Reggae brings comfort to the afflicted, hope to the sufferers, strength to the victims, and motivation for those that actually want to do something to improve their environment.
Raspect is due to the man who rightfully wears the title "King Of Reggae".
One Love, Give Thanks,

ITEMS FOR THIS EDITION:
WWW, November 15 2009 - Jah Willing, the Dubroom will be paying more than a special attention to Michael Campbell, the one and only REAL MIKEY DREAD. Read all about it in this edition of Dubroom In-Site!
WWW, November 15 2009 - Fita Warri chants it up in the Buju Banton and Sizzla tradition, but he does it over a track produced in the typical UK Roots Tradition. The two styles combine better than one and ones would maybe say when reading this, especially when listening to "Help the Youth" a couple of times. Quality grows on ya, ya know...
WWW, November 2009 - We go back in time, to 1988, to meet Edi Fitzroy. He's recording his third album and Cry For My Brothers is one of the tunes.
Today, the magnifique album is out of print and only available digitally. Cry For My Brothers will more than likely make you want to check out all tracks on "Pollution".
WWW, November 2009 - Bob Marley is widely considered the King of Reggae, because of the enormous amount of work he did to get Reggae Music accepted world wide. He created his own style within Reggae Music, a style which caused many to dig deeper in Jamaican Music and become Reggae fans for the rest of their lifes.
