Road To The Reggae Grammy: We Look Back At The Nominations Of 1985!


With the staging of the 60th Grammy Awards drawing near, we thought we’d look back at some of years where the Reggae Grammy was won. While many know of the winners, we also want to look back at some of the nominees. Today we’ll look at the year 1985, which was the first time that a Grammy was awarded for the Reggae category.

Before the “Best Reggae Album” Grammy, there was the “Best Reggae Recording” category. This category was open to both singles and albums before officially switching to the album only format in 1992. Jimmy Cliff’s hit single “Reggae Night” was thrown into the running. The single was produced by Amir Bayyan, Jim Bonnefond, and Ronald Bell, and was written by Bayyan and La Toya Jackson. This single was also featured on the Artist’s 1983 Album, “The Power And The Glory”. It went on to be one of Cliff’s biggest hits.

Make The @PeterTosh Memorial Garden A National Historic Landmark!


Recently, the Estate of the late Peter Tosh released a petition in efforts to have the Jamaican Tourist Board and the Government of Jamaica register The Peter Tosh Memorial Garden a National Historic Landmark. The Museum, located in Belmont, Westmoreland, was erected to preserve the life and legacy of the late Musician and original member of The Wailers. The Estate believes that recognizing the Museum as a Historic Landmark will protect it for generations as Tosh was an advocate for the legalization of Marijuana, fought for Equal Rights, and further expanded Jamaica’s Music and Culture.

Peter Tosh was born in Grange Hill, Westmoreland in 1944 and was known as a Musician, Reggae Artist, and Activist. He was a core member of The Wailers along with the late Bob Marley and Bunny Wailer where he received much success before embarking a solo career. He has collaborated with the likes of Mick Jagger of The Rolling Stones and recorded many great songs including “Stepping Razor“, “Legalize It“, “Johnny B Goode“, and penned songs such as “Get Up, Stand Up” and “400 Years” for The Wailers. Peter Tosh died on September 11, 1987 as a result of a home invasion. He was posthumously awarded the Order Of Merit in October 2012.

The Peter Tosh Memorial Garden petition can be found here.
