The Guiness Who's Who Of Reggae is one of the most eagerly awaited titles in the Who's Who series. The genre was hewn from Jamaican R&B and ska of the early 60s with pioneering producers such as Prince Buster, Coxsone Dodd and Duke Reid and the mod era in the UK fed off the burgeoning interest. The London club scene was a great pioneer in getting this music across to its audience, as the radio stations of the day would not entertain such left-of-center material.
