To Be Young Gifted And Black - Various - The Roots Of Reggae (Cassette)

World-renowned, international UK Roots Rock Reggae Band Black Slate, as featured a short documentary entitled “Young, Gifted & Black” name after the classic song recorded by the late, great Nina Simone!. The aim of the documentary is to encourage young people to never given up on their plans, hopes and dreams, but nurture it so it grows.

"Young Gifted & Black" (20 tracks; 65 min.) offers over an hour of mostly terrific reggae (or at least reggae-flavored) tracks. Starting off with Bob & Marcia's "Young Gifted & Black" (from ), which I had never heard before, I was immediately put in a good mood by that song/5().

 · “Young, Gifted And Black”, subtitled “The Story Of Trojan Records”, is written by Michael De Koningh and Laurence Cane-Honeysett, with input from well-respected writer and reviewer Mike Atherton and Marc Griffiths, the latter being the author of “Boss Sounds – Classic Skinhead Reggae”.

  1.  · Along with the two-CD expanded edition of the soundtrack of The Harder They Come, this compilation -- also two CDs, and with a whopping 50 tracks -- is the best anthology of early reggae music. (In fact eight cuts appear on both compilations, though the duplication certainly isn't excessive.) Some more roots-oriented reggae fans might argue that the selection on Young, Gifted and Black is too /10(5).
