Deep Roots Music 1: Revival / Ranking Sounds - DVD

Deep Roots Music 1: Revival / Ranking Sounds - DVD
Bookmark and Share
Product Description

Official release of film maker Howard Johnson's legendary Channel 4 history of reggae music series Deep Roots. Originally shown on Channel 4 as a series of six half hour programmes back in the early eighties, nearly a quarter of a century ago, it obviously fails to tell the story from that point on, the fact that there is no equivelent documentary of the music since then is nothing short of a crying shame.  However, despite this, and other quibbles, the amount of priceless footage this delivers is well worth the investment.  This DVD contains the first two chapters; Part 1 - Revival, an examination of the music's roots in the Caribbean plus rare footage of the Skatalites, Count Ossie, Toots and The Maytals, Jimmy Cliff and many more.  Part 2 - Ranking Sounds looks at the role of the sound system in the music's development and includes vintage footage of U Roy, Prince Buster, Sir Lord Comic, Count Machoukie and the famous footage of Jack Ruby's Hi Power sound in Ocho Rios with live on the mic appearances from Mikey Simpson and Icho Candy.  Essential.
