DUBROOM MP3 REVIEW
WWW, December 2007 - The House of Reggae #18 opens with a massive track and short biography of Garnett Silk, and then continues to give us another hour of Reggae Music history presented in a fine style.
As the number of episodes in the House of Reggae grow, it becomes clear just what a priceless series of Podcast we are really reviewing here: it's the History of Reggae all over and over again, in Word Sound and Power.
This history is important for too many reasons to mention. Just look at the enormous achievements of the Jamaicans we know to be the originators of Reggae, it's enough to realize how much we need historians like Bredda Ian who doesn't just play music, but actually does a lot of work for his shows, which... shows.
The 18th episode has, next to a short but impressive biography of Garnett Silk right at the start, also some rare material that will make you want to check out the Podcast just to listen to it. Sugar Minott coming in a DJ Style under the name "Papa Honey", for example.
