I've never written a review for anything on itunes and I don't even know how I ended up on this podcast but the compilations are amazing. After living in Canada for over 10 years I moved back to Jamaica in 1996 but ended up moving to the States in 2001. Since moving here I always feel a little out of touch with the music scene when I go back to JA. I'm not sure if it is age but I just cannot get into a lot of the dancehall that is coming out of JA right now. For me, the Reggae Gold podcast was really a blast from the past. I also downloaded The Best Of Reggae Gold Roots and can't wait to get into my car for my morning commute. Excellent work and very much appreciated.
