VA - Hot Shots Of Reggae 1976!!!

1976 - what a great year for reggae (40 years ago!), and for jamaican music overall. This is a mixtape I made with jamaican reggae from the year of 1976. Overall is straight reggae, some flavours of more rootsy stuff, dj's and dub presents. Most of the tracks are from rare and groovy 7inches. This was not a try to do a complete or fair overview of 1976 Jamaican music (no Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Augustus Pablo, Lee Perry, etc is included), It's just a swinging mixtape - no more remarkable than that. Do the reggae!

  4. Thanks Aaron. A great idea for a reggae comp, and I'm happy that it doesn't have the artists you mentioned above but instead focuses on lesser compiled artists. Good taste as usual.

    1. Thanks you so much! Have a great weekend.
