It's an England story, mate, oi!

Like I opened up here before:good reggae can come out of somewhere else than Jamaica. And today I got reminded that actually England is the home of many great reggae / reggae influenced artists. I mean Aswad, Black Roots, Musical Youth, Steel Pulse and such are great, but as I bought the "An England Story Compilation, Vol I" by Soul Jazz Recordings today I remembered all these cool toasters who showed the rich multicultural heritage of the britons.

This cool compilation brought back the sounds of Tenor Fly, Papa Levi, Top Cat, Freestylers, RaggaTwins, Tippa Irie and their mates. Check out this vid to feel the ragga of the 90's....
