From Cuba to Brixton, via Kingston, Laurel Aitken carried his share of the precious seeds of what was to become reggae music. From its blue beat, calypso tinged origins in the ‘50s to the battle tracks, musical diary entries and social comment of the mid-late 1960s that set the tone for punk rock and hip hop a decade later, this master craftsman cut side after high quality side for Pama Records, Dr Bird, Rio, Island and others, creating a vibrant catalogue that stands tall among the canon of music of West Indian origin today.
