Midweek Reggae



I really need to start hitting the charity shops again soon as at the moment I am completely devoid of inspiration.

Over the last few days I have been listening to a Best of Reggae compilation. It has about 50 tracks on it one of which is Suzanne Beware of the Devil by Dandy Livingstone which is probably one of my favourite Reggae songs.Dandy has featured here before when I picked up his album Conscious in a charity shop but this is Suzanne's debut on these pages.

I would argue that you can't have a Best of Reggae without War Ina Babylon by Max Romeo & the Upsetters and Police and Thieves by Junior Murvin but that  appears to be the case.They would certainly be on any Best of that I put together. Both these songs have appeared here before but I make no apology for featuring them again.

Dandy Livingstone -Suzanne Beware of the Devil

Max Romeo & the Upsetters - War Ina Babylon

Junior Murvin - Police and Thieves


  1. K-Tel is far too cool for th likes of Mr Murvin and Mr Romeo

  2. First hearing of Dandy Livingstone's Suzanne - a sweet track like you say. Also had only heard the Clash's version of Police and Thieves before - I've a couple of dozen Reggae comp CDs, none of which have either of those so many thanks - nabbed and dues paid!
