"Best of Reggae Sunsplash" & "Reggae: The Story of Jamaican Music"
Best of Reggae Sunsplash
(1982)
Reggae Sunsplash is the brainchild of four Jamaicans, Tony Johnson, Don Green, Ronnie Burke and John Wakeling. Beginning in the summer of 1978, Sunsplash and the great reggae artists it featured is credited for generating tourism in Jamaica during the summer, traditionally a dead season. This collection of performances by The Mighty Diamonds, Yellow Man, Dean Fraser, Eek-A-Mouse and many more captures the festival at its apex.

The Story of Jamaican Music
(Dir. Mike Conolly, 2004, 90 min.)
This documentary uses clips, interviews, and musical performances to examine the evolution of reggae music, which was born on the streets of Jamaica and spread through America, Europe, and eventually the world. The popular artists of reggae, whose presence is still felt today, ultimately created a lasting impression and went on to influence a wide variety of musical styles including rock and hip hop.
