Did you know?
Rap has its roots in Reggae. Years ago, Jamaican DJs would talk or sing over recorded songs. Reggae artists brought this sound to New York, where it gained popularity at dances, and was finally released in 'Planet Rock' by Zulu Nation.

The Real Talking Fish is a personal homepage, not a commercial site. But if you feel like it, type in Bob Marley or your favorite artist, song or album for a search with CDNow:

If you can create that one special sound that sets you apart, then you will be a legend. Glenn Miller did it, the early rockers did it, and so did Bob Marley. A special beat, a special feeling just carries you away. Well, ME away, anyway. The so-often-called-legendary Bob Marley was not ‘manufactured’ like so many other stars. He developed his sound in a grass roots movement from the poverty-stricken neighborhoods of his native Jamaica, a genuine original.

When I listen to his music, sometimes crooning, sometimes strident, I feel an honesty lacking from other artists, who ‘sample’ songs from a better period, or any period, without any of the feeling of the original.
