David Katz - Solid Foundation An Oral History Of Reggae [BOOK]

This Is A Pre-Order Item and is expected 4th July 2024

Solid Foundation is the definitive history of Jamaica's holy music: reggae in all its forms, from the earliest ska and rock steady pioneers to the dancehall and reggae revival stars of the 21st century. Woven together into an engrossing narrative, this is an extensive history charting the progression and development of the music, with all the glorious highlights and the controversies and feuds in between. First published in 2003 and including interviews with over 200 of the genre's key artists, Solid Foundation has been revised and updated with abundant new material and an introduction by award-winning novelist, Jacqueline Crooks, reissued as part of White Rabbit's Deep Cuts series.

'The definitive history of reggae told through exclusive interviews with the genre's greatest innovators.' - Sunday Herald

'Solid Foundation goes the extra yard to become a defining text, with Katz interviewing virtually every survivor from the island's 60s and 70s music scenes...it is a necessary work.' - The Wire

'Solid Foundation is a welcome addition to the narrow shelf of books that move beyond simplistic views of reggae.' - Record Collector
