A great documentary on an often overlooked genre of music
8 September 2019 | by coombsstephenSee all my reviews

First of all, this really is a documentary purely for reggae lovers. It is not a generic reggae story, it concentrates on a new acoustic album by some old reggae and dancehall legends.

There are some classic performances including some amazing vocals by Ken Boothe and Kiddus I. I liked the way the film is split up into sections on several different artists, so it stayed very interesting all the way through.

My only thought was it missed a bit of a trick not being a more generic history of reggae, ska and dancehall, so it included the songs and history of the likes of Dennis Edwards, Pete Tosh etc who don't have their own documentary like Bob Marley.

It's still a must for any reggae fan though.
