Hello everyone!

New member here. I have been lurking around here on and off for a long time, but realized I have never actually registered (seem to remember it was not possible in the past). I am also on the Roots Archives and Blood & Fire forums with this same nickname, and I have also quite recently registered at the Pama forum (I guess some of the same people hang around several of those places).

I am a music fan from Sweden, record collector and also working as a musician (guitar/bass). I am born in ’74, just for reference, but my musical interest has always been in old (for me) music, mainly 60’s & 70’s. I am really a Rock fan from the start, but I have always had a side interest in Reggae, and in the last 10+ years or so it has deepened considerably. As most rockers I heard (and liked) Bob Marley ever since I started listening to music seriously, and of course also picked up some of the other more well known names along the way, such as Toots, Spear, etc. But when I came across and read ”The Rough Guide To Reggae”, and started to get a better understanding of the history of Jamaican music, my obsession really started. I am mostly a fan of the period from the Rocksteady era to early (pre-digital) Dancehall, but I have come to appreciate everything from Mento to Ragga on my journey.

My interest as far as Trojan (and associated labels) go has not been so much in the original releases, but more in the 80’s and forward compilations and reissues, as part of the process of building my Reggae collection.

Hiya.. I have the same ID on Pama & here.... It doesn't really matter what era you favour, as there are fans of the whole range of JA styles on here. Smile

Welcome to the forum, Mr. Floor Smile

...and thanks for the introduction.

I'm on Pama with the same ID, but haven't visited in about 9 months.

I look forward to reading your posts...and we'll try and help with any questions you might have Wink

Your ID reminded me of the Moving Sidewalks tune:

Thank you for your welcome everybody!

Well done sir! I see there are some cultivated people on this forum. Wink

That is the "inspiration". ZZ Top were my musical "first love" so to speak, and Billy G. was a big influence on my learning to play guitar. I used to collect their early records pretty seriously and think I have all the Moving Sidewalks releases as well.

Thanks, 99th.

That tune was the only musical connection I could make.
