Big Youth - Train To Rhodesia (Video Review)

Dubroom (DUB) Reggae Video Review

WWW, November 2007 - With some excellent video recordings from Jamaica in the 1970's capturing the vibes of the times, we'll meet up with Big Youth in a classic tune.

Some people have their own style within a style and Big Youth is definitely one of them. His own particular combination of toasting ("Reggae Rapping") and singing adds that special touch only he would give back then.

During the 1970's, Big Youth came up very strong as he voiced one riddim after the other." Train to Rhodesia" is just one of them, but it's one of his best tunes too. The music is played in the "Flying Cymbals" style made popular by the Soul Syndicate and can be found on the Big Youth album "Dreadlocks Dread".

Sights and Sounds from 1970's Jamaican music that will definitely appeal to the young hearts of today as well!
