 EARLY REGGAE / SKINHEAD
I believe this paradigmatic shift came about in part, through the awareness of the musicians, artists, producers, and audiences in Jamaican that the music they were creating had value and use beyond their own needs and desires to a near global context, and had, weather they wanted it or no, now entered an international dimension.
