VARIOUS REGGAE ARTISTS short bio + Audio cassette tape for sale

The 1967 edition of the Dictionary of Jamaican English lists reggae as 'a recently estab. sp. for rege', as in rege-rege, a word that can mean either 'rags, ragged clothing' or 'a quarrel, a row'. Reggae as a musical term first appeared in print with the 1968 rocksteady hit 'Do the Reggay' by The Maytals, but there are many different theories as to how the term originated. The music itself was faster than rocksteady, but tighter and more complex than ska, with obvious debts to both styles, while going beyond them both. Speaking to the term's origins, reggae artist Derrick Morgan stated: We didn't like the name rock steady, so I tried a different version of 'Fat Man'. It changed the beat again, it used the organ to [Bunny Lee]], the producer, liked that. He created the sound with the organ and the rhythm guitar. It sounded like 'reggae, reggae' and that name just took off. Bunny Lee started using the world and soon all the musicians were saying 'reggae, reggae, reggae'.
