Reggae Pulse 5: Protest Songs   RAS 06076-80483-2

Produced by: Edward Lee

Release Date: February 22, 2005

Reggae has become the planetís most significant and ubiquitous music of resistance. Here are some of the best protest songs ever, mixing decades and styles and artists all of whom have one common purpose, nothing less than changing the world. 

Reggae Pulse 5: Protest Songs features the most potent reggae anthems in the history of Jamaican music, combined with five new recordings of classic protest songs from the 1960ís.  From Bob Marley & The Wailers "Soul Rebel" and Peter Toshís "Get Up, Stand Up" to reggae-fied versions of John Lennonís "Working Class Hero" and Buffalo Springfieldís "For What Itís Worth," this collection takes a bite out of the new world order.

Reggae Pulse 5: Protest Songs is a welcome addition to the ever-popular Reggae Pulse series. The mass appeal of these great tracks makes this a must for any fan of roots music.  All killer, no filler! Eighteen great tracks with broad appeal to reggae fans, rock fans from the 60ís, and Marley fans from the 70ís. In this current time of war and protest, this album will speak to many listeners.
