Various Artists - All You Need Is Love (Beatles Reggae Songs) LP
As Beatlemania approached its peak, Jamaican music was undergoing a transition that started with ska, and then morphed into rocksteady, before assuming its ultimate form as reggae. Inevitably these cultures collided, with artists such as the Paragons and Marcia Grifths establishing a tradition of creating dynamic reggae covers of the Beatles’ hits that continues to this day.
This album extends this lineage, as some of the best reggae Reggae artists set out on a series of version excursions that include some of the Fab Four’s best loved bitter-sweet cuts.
