#Throwback Thursday – Reggae Regular – Ghetto Rock (1984)

I discovered Reggae Regular’s 1984 album Ghetto Rock at Deep Groove in Richmond, VA.
Ghetto Rock features everything that I enjoy about UK reggae- vocal harmonies, the occasional synth stab, and a deep riddim section. With the exception of Marco Benevento’s, Between the Needles and Nightfall I have listened to this LP more than any other album this summer.

Earlier this year, United Reggae posted a great 4 part interview with Reggae Regular.
Interview: Reggae Regular (Part 1 – Their History).

Seth founded Rootfire while he was managing a group of influential modern reggae acts, including The Green, John Brown’s Body, and Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad. The goal of the project has always been to connect the people who participate in the modern reggae movement.
