Di classifiche ce ne sono tante, questa però è particolarmente interessante perché ricostruisce le hits, anno dopo anno, facendo ripercorrere la storia della musica popolare in Giamaica. Un occasione unica per i silecta, collezionisti e studiosi del genere, scorrere la classifica perchè c’è oltre all’anno, anche il produttore.

La TOP 100 è stata commissionata in occasione del 60° anniversario dell’indipendenza della Giamaica ed è curata da una giuria di esperti di musica giamaicani che hanno valutato un elenco dei 100 migliori dischi giamaicani realizzati dal 1962 al 2022. Le canzoni possono essere originali o adattamenti, vocali o strumentali di tutti i generi di musica giamaicana. 

Ecco gli autori di questa speciale TOP 100

Da Clinton Lindsay, con l’assistenza di SAM MITCHELL (conduttore radiofonico/produttore discografico); TONY RYAN (conduttore radiofonico/collezionista di dischi); DJ ROY (conduttore radiofonico/selettore club); MARLON BURRELL (conduttore radiofonico/ricercatore musicale); FRANCINE CHIN (conduttrice radiofonica); HOWARD CAMPBELL (giornalista); TONY CARR (conduttore radiofonico); KARL ANTHONY (conduttore radiofonico); FITZROY FRANCIS (produttore discografico/consulente per l’industria musicale); LLOYD “T-Rob” ROBERTS (conduttore radiofonico)
