Being born in Britain does not mean you are British. The whole topic is a divide & rule on labels yet none of these labels refer to record labels.

In the USA black people are called Afro-American not American. Which is another label for African.

Afro-British is not a label used in Britain, just British to get the point across on British Slavery.

As far as i overstand and this taken from the voting page the criteria is that,

"British refers to a British-born artist or an act that was UK-based for an extended period of their career when the recording was made."

hope that clears up any confusion

Yeah it's "Black British or "Afro-Carribean". I identify with neither but I might identify with "African Jamaican British with a touch of European". I hate the term "ethnic minority". I mean, no one describes white people as "ethnic majority", they describe them as white people. Are we not people as well?

Jah Shaka seems to be known as a British Artist on Wiki - The British Zulu Warrior that helped the British against the Zulus.

What stupidness are the BMC running in their polls & copywrite laws on YT because they don't own the rights of JA reggae tunes. Go to Copywrite school on YouTube BMC & take Merlin with you. Stick with ripping off Bob Marley. By the way BMC Bob Marley is a British Artist as well as Lee Perry.

Many collectors only want Jamaican music on the British labels like Blue Beat, Bamboo, Doctor Bird, etc. Oh the irony.

Promised Land (Simba 12" 1979) came first. Love Fire was on New Chapter (1981).

They are both on UK releases but the Simba label one sounds like it was recorded in JA. There is no info on the label on where it was recorded.

If it was put "Top 20 Reggae Tunes Made In Britain" then it makes more sense.


Irie Dread Archive this quote make me laugh BREXIT REGGAE.

I really think this thread need to be renamed something else after reading all the quotes left :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

I got the dates from whosampledwho, but you're probably right - there's no date on the Simba label. Thanks for the info.

PS As further circumstantial evidence, Promised Land was on the Revolution album (1985). Also note that the Promised Land on the B&F compilation of the same name (covering 1975-1979) is not the Aswad-backed track, but better known as Lately Girl (as on the Wolf and Leopards album).

Love Fire definitely came first because I remember when it fisrt came out and rushing to the record shop to buy the LP. Never heard a rhythm like that before.
