Means a lot coming from you guys. Have seen you filming for years and years NoMo. You know your roots brethren. My list could be a lot bigger, but these were just off the top of my head. Bless.

JCom , we've reasoned back and forth for years-no need to ratify your affinity of the roots of things to me...you've always spoken your mind and let the chips fall. I had no qualms about hyping INKA INKA and Roots Tonic back in the day-would they be classified as Cali reggae?

But I say... Some Never Even Plant yet want to Reap,
If you run, be careful, try to look before you leap;
Took a little walk from my Vineyard...
Now I'm on my own
Now I'm left alone..

i just posted this in the "what is cali reggae" thread:

"your mind is not dirty so don't let no one wash your brain." -inka inka, "brainwash"

always loved that intro, but actually preferred the song "coo pon jah" from the same LP...good roots music.

Memories will keep popping into my mind on this thread. I believe it was 1990?? But it was a show at Snowbird, UT. Lucky Dube, Peter Broggs, Mighty Diamonds, and Charlie Chaplain. RIP to Lucky, who was killed in a car jacking in South Africa...hope they caught that @#$%&(s) and they got beaten to all hell. RIP to Peter Broggs's as well. Remember this cassette player? This was what I was getting powder face shots boarding to back in the day....yes, cassettes. P.S. - Lucky Dube carjackers were caught and sentenced to life in prison...props to those that caught them.

That's was an epic show right there in Snowbird- I caught Charlie Chaplin with Mutabaruka and the Mighty Diamonds (minus Tabby) in a little club in Dallas back in 1990-91. ....A buddy of mine and I recorded Lucky Dube's 1st to last performance ever in the US at Denver's Reggae on the Rocks in 2007- such a tragic thing -his death.

one of the best live in-studio interviews we ever did was with lucky dube in maybe 1990 or so; he was promoting his "prisoner" release i think. kboo let us come in and do a special show in the middle of the day; this was back when we were on in the middle of the week, middle of the night.
i still can't believe we were so fortunate as to meet and really have a nice, long discussion with him, on and off air. his show that night in portland was incredible.
his death was such a tragedy, just a massive loss for reggae music in general, and reggae music in africa in particular.

just as an aside, i remember asking him about his name lucky and he said that it was actually a very common name in south africa.

i laugh as i remember boycotting wikipedia for years, because the first time i ever got on wikipedia was after an article on lucky dube had a link that led me there. i read about how (supposedly) his mom named him lucky after having several unsuccessful pregnancies. what a bunch of baloney. i know as much from my conversation with him, but really, just think about it -- as if the western definition of "lucky" actually meant lucky in zulu or xhosa or whatever their families traditional language is (can't remember offhand what it is, sorry). pretty stupid.
