Solid Foundation : An Oral History Of Reggae
David Katz is one of the foremost reggae writers of this generation. His first book, "People Funny Boy: The Genius of Lee Scratch Perry", was universally acclaimed for its insight and depth. "Solid Foundation" is the definitive history of the first 30 years of Jamaican Reggae, from the pre-ska era to the dawn of dancehall. Katz has interviewed over 200 key artists, going back to the earliest pioneers of the late '40s. He has taken over fifteen years to collect the interviews and it is an extraordinary feat. Woven together into an engrossing narrative, this is an exhaustive history charting the progression and development of the music, with all the glorious highlights and the controversies and feuds in between covered in detail. The book will also contain over 200 integrated photographs, many of which have never been published before.
