Taped this and just watched it now, that was worse than some of the northern soul "documentaries", the lowlight for me was some white ginger haired bird, completely fucking up, explaining what the Rasta phrase "I & I" meant. Piss poor IMHO.

I think she was Bob Marley's publicist through Island

It was quite a good 'beginners guide' 

As a white brit, roots reggae is understandably more resonant to a black audience as the lyrics speak of black history and slavery, as well as African roots

I am falling more in love with this music, just as we white boys dug the blues in the early 60's

It's a shame the skinhead crowd find it boring, although I'm secretly glad they stay in their cul de sac
