Reggae Golden JubileeReggae Golden Jubilee – Origins of Jamaican Music (50th Anniversary) is 100 of the most significant hit songs to emerge from Jamaica over the first fifty years of the country’s independence. The four CDs take the listener from Ska & Rocksteady to Roots & Dancehall in a roughly chronological order. Edward Seaga, the former Prime Minister of Jamaica is a formidable music fan and historian of Jamaican music. He personally played a key role in the development of the Jamaican music industry and lent his insight and perspective to the creation of this commemorative package. Mr. Seaga selected the tracks, wrote the package liner notes and contributed to track by track notations. A preface from VP Records president Christopher Chin is included in the 64 page booklet along with a foreword from radio personality Dermot Hussey and writer and music historian John Masouri. As well as the stellar collection of songs, the package delivers many iconic photographs and imagery from Jamaica’s first fifty years.

“In the course of development, Jamaican popular music demonstrated a triumph of creativity by borrowing nothing to build something.” – Edward Seaga

“my family and I have witnessed the evolution of Jamaican music and its impact around the world. This rich music is not only the foundation of my family’s business but on a personal level became the soundtrack of life memories.” – Christopher Chin
