Reggae Got Soul (25)

6 July 2024


Number '25' from my 'Year of Music' series is now 'Reggae Got Soul' and I've given it a fresh cover too. Not much need for words here, it's a selection of soulful reggae from my shelves, all big favourites of mine. As for the cover, well, I've leaned on AI and done some touch ups and editing of my own, the tree of life to represent the soulful aspect, and the colours used in the sky represent the red, gold, green and black to represent the colours traditionally associated with reggae, rasta and black culture.

If you want to know more about the 'Year of Music' series, there's a short explanation over [HERE]. If you prefer to use Soundcloud, then this selection can be found [HERE] for now, though that link might not always remain live.
