This selection represents one of my favourite phases of Reggae, the Rockers (Steppas, Roots Reggae if you like)of the mid-to-late-70s. The heavy basslines, rocking double-time drum patterns and percussion enthralled me at the time as they still do now.

These are all original 7” 45’s except for Peter Austin’s ‘The Ghetto’, which is a recent re-issue, but as it’s from the same period of time, fits perfectly! I hope you enjoy listening as much as I did compiling this selection of authentic roots rock reggae!

Check Keith hosting the ‘Reggae Rock‘ radio show on, Wed 9pm-11pm GMT.
