Reggae Golden Jubilee

Reggae Golden Jubilee – Origins of Jamaican Music (50th Anniversary) is 100 of the most significant hit songs to emerge from Jamaica over the first fifty years of the country’s independence.


The four CDs take the listener from Ska & Rocksteady to roots & dancehall in a roughly chronological order. Edward Seaga, the former Prime Minister of Jamaica is a formidable music fan and historian of Jamaican music. He personally played a key role in the development of the Jamaican music industry and lent his insight and perspective to the creation of this commemorative package.

Mr. Seaga selected the tracks, wrote the package liner notes and contributed to track by track notations. A preface from VP Records president Christopher Chin is included in the 64 page booklet along with a foreword from radio personality Dermot Hussey and writer and music historian John Masouri. As well as the stellar collection of songs, the package delivers many iconic photographs and imagery from Jamaica’s first fifty years.
