Me Negril

Seeing Peter Tosh at Southpark Meadows in 1983 cemented my love for reggae music. My wife & I made our first trip to Jamaica in June 1985 and have returned many times over the years. Our daughter’s first concert was Burning Spear in 1988 when she was 3 months old! I’ve been collecting reggae since the early 80’s and have a vast collection to share with Roots Train listeners.
