The history of Reggae in Britain

During the colonial days before Jamaica's independence in 1962, Jamaicans were moving to England by the boat load, literally so, on a ship called WindRush, to seek a better life. Being that 90% of those folks moving to UK in that era were primarily poor, they were more in-tuned to the Reggae culture, known at the time as "rockers, ska, mento", and they took those records with them. Of course many white folks fell under the spell of the beat and before long, UK became the great revenue source for many Reggae artists, including Bob Marley and the wailers.
