Hi,

Thanks for taking the time to read Smile

We are running a BBC project called the People's History of Pop to tell the story of five decades of popular music through people’s memorabilia collections.

We would love members of the Trojan forum to get involved.

We are collating photos, ticket stubs, diary entries, teen band recordings, wrist bands, rare footage and more - it would be great to get memories of the British reggae scene and Trojan records up on the site.

You can find it at www.phop.co.uk - if you have saved stuff in your attic or under your bed, this is the time to get it out again!

For more information, the BBC page is at www.bbc.co.uk/peoplespop

Best

Zoe

Hello Zoe - thanks for registering.

http://www.historypin.org/en/explore/phop/geo/53.185384,-1.815867,6/bounds/53.185384,-1.815867,53.185384,-1.815867/project/about

This sounds like a very worthwhile project and were Reggae to get its fair share of air time in the proposed documentary that might slightly help to make up for the times when it seems to have been air-brushed out of musical history.

In my opinion, Reggae remains one of the most undervalued and least-understood genres of music, though I'll concede that things have improved in recent years, probably thanks (mainly) to the rise of the Internet and the advent of social media, from forums like here through to places like Facebook and Twitter.

I'll take a proper look at the website/project.

Sounds like a worthy project Zoe Smile

Hopefully, some of us on here will be able to contribute in some way or another, although as Reggae was to a large extent an 'underground' music there often aren't the commercial trappings of the Pop world associated with it. But as Joe said just now, the music deserved far more recognition that it got, and in fact Reggae 45s often sold umpteen thousands more copies than what got in the national charts.

"mood" photos of the 60s won't be that easy to find, except for the "standard" pictures we've seen many times over:

Thanks Zapatoo - that's a lovely image. It would be great to get some stuff in on reggae, as you say. I am really keen to tell those stories, especially as reggae/dub/dancehall cultures influenced so much other music in turn as well as being great movements in their own right. Anything you have of your own, from ticket stubs to vinyl to personal photos, do upload it with personal stories! We've just had a contribution about Fashion Records and hopefully we can get lots more around reggae as the project moves forward. Thanks again

I do have a piece I wrote for a U.S. website a couple of years ago, Zoe - it's about my first experience at a Blues (in a house in Harlesden) in 1970...yours if you want it (and I can find it Wink)

Almost right, Seth.

It wasn't really an interview. More like Jason asking me several things online and me suggesting that I write it down...which I'd never done before (write about those memories, that is)

That sounds great Zapatoo -- if you have a photo/ticket/or some kind of memorabilia that might go with it? Or a record that links in with the songs you heard there? You just upload a pic of it at www.phop.co.uk and then write the memory of the experience at the Blues...would love to know more about it!
