WWW, January 2008 - Ian's "House Of Reggae" is located in London. But there's a House of Reggae in Canada too. And how it sounds, can be heard in the 19th episode of this excellent Podcast series.

The 1970's Canadian release turns out to be the original and historical Canadian release of Prince Alla's 1970's tune "Bozrah". And it's not the only highlight in the House of Reggae #19.

In fact, the whole hour is filled with interesting beats and bytes all leading towards a higher overstanding of the many different aspects of Reggae Music and Culture.

The show starts off with an ancient Dennis Brown track, followed by a deeply spiritual extended tune by Prince Alla and Tappa Zukie of which our host gladfully provides the biblical background information as well.

Another highlight in the show is formed by an obscure Lee Perry and King Tubby collaboration, from the pre-Black Ark era. Ian plays both sides of the original 7" vinyl single, and showcases some later Perry productions as well.

Another episode in what is surely one of the most informative Reggae podcasts in Cyberspace!
