Thank Jah!!! It's Jamaica Week.
Thursday I am going on my first trip to Jamaica....Seen!!! I really couldn't be more excited. A trip to Bob's house may or may not happen (hopefully it will). However, just to go there makes me feel jah blessed.
Peep this excellent video of young Ziggy Marley during his first big public performance at a tribute concert to his father. Zig, the Wailers, and I-Threes lay down a serious reggae p-dropper. The audio of this performance is available on the highlights disc of Sunsplash '81.
Ziggy is playing the Irving Plaza this Thursday (tix still available).
Another touch of reggae gold on youtube:
Toots & the Maytals plus Jack Johnson and Ben Harper
(how sweet is Toots' outfit?????)
Ben Harper and Jack Johnson covering Bob's "High Tide or Low Tide"
