David Katz is one of the foremost reggae writers of this generation. "Solid Foundation" is the definitive history of the first 30 years of Jamaican Reggae, from the pre-ska era to the dawn of dancehall. Katz has interviewed over 200 key artists, going back to the earliest pioneers of the late 1940s. He has taken over fifteen years to collect the interviews and it is an extraordinary feat. Woven together into an engrossing narrative, this is an exhaustive history charting the progression and development of the music, with all the glorious highlights and the controversies and feuds in between covered in detail.
