VP RECORDS 35th ANNIVERSARY POP-UP EXHIBIT TO DEBUT AT NYC’S ANNUAL GRACE JAMAICAN JERK FESTIVAL ON SUN. JULY 20
The Reggae Powerhouse Celebrates Their Story & History of Reggae Music with State-Of-The-Art Display Designed by Michael Thompson
From ska to rocksteady, roots reggae to dub, lover’s rock to dancehall - VP Records has been at the forefront of Jamaica’s musical evolution.  2014 marks the 35th anniversary when its founders Vincent and his wife Patricia Chin moved their headquarters from Kingston, Jamaica to Jamaica, New York transforming their operations into the largest reggae company worldwide. On Sunday July 20th, 2014, VP Records will celebrate their story and the history of reggae music with a special pop-up exhibit that will debut at the fourth annual Grace Jamaican Jerk Festival, held at Queens’ Roy Wilkins Park. For more information on the festival visitwww.jerkfestivalny.com.
The VP Records 35th Anniversary exhibit will feature a visually appealing storyboard installation designed by Michael Thompson. There will be a detailed map exploring the global impact of reggae music in every continent and an illustrative timeline covering each era - beginning in1958 (when the Chins established Randy’s Record Mart and Studio 17 in Kingston, Jamaica).
A short video documentary will air as part of the installation. The video’s narrator and Sirius XM reggae personality Pat McKay will walk the viewers through the social and political history of Jamaican music and explain how VP Records is a key contributor to its growth, development and future. In an excerpt from the video, McKay explains that “Vincent and Pat’s move to New York and the founding of VP Record’s Distribution formed an independent and vital channel from Jamaica to the world. The classic recordings of the period made an indelible mark and established reggae as a dominant form of the developing ‘world music’ genre.”
VP Records co-founder Patricia Chin along with her sons Christopher and Randy Chin, who run and operate the label today, will be on site at Grace Jamaican Jerk Festival and available for interviews. After the exhibit’s debut, the label plans to take this traveling installation into other markets throughout the rest of the year. More details to be announced at a later date.

Family of Legendary Reggae icon wants singer to stop claiming he is son of Bob Marley!
(PLEASE FOLLOW BOTH Tumblr’s  HERE & HERE)

A singer who goes by the name Fabian Marley may have to stop stating he is the son of the legendary Reggae singer Bob Marley until he can substantiate his claim.
According to a report by the Observer,  the singer Fabian Marley who goes by the moniker ‘Gong Kid’ gives his birth date as July 27, 1968.
He claims to be the result of a liaison between his mother Raphie Munroe and Bob Marley.
He says all his official documents, including his birth certificate, have the Marley surname.
According to the singer, six months after submitting his DNA results to the Marley family, he still hasn’t received a response.
He told the Jamaica Observer that he took the DNA test after receiving a “cease and desist” order from the family’s attorneys, Michael Hylton & Associates.
The document warned him to refrain from using the Marley name and claiming to be the son of reggae legend Bob Marley, unless he supplied concrete evidence.

This interview by Ryan Gilkes appeared in Barbados Today.
Barbados and the other islands of the Caribbean are rich with tremendous talent that is just waiting to be discovered and it is not this writer that is saying this.
It is our very own Shontelle, and she should know. She has had her fair spell, writing for some of the big names in the industry – the Kelly Clarkesons and the Cee Lo Greens.

“What I have found from my experience in the industry is that they tend to think that you have a lot more value if you have something to deliver other than your pretty face, hot body and just singing.– Shontelle

This Day in Black History: May 11, 1981 
Reggae legend Bob Marley died from cancer.
(PLEASE FOLLOW BOTH Tumblr’s  HERE & HERE)
He was the embodiment of reggae music, Rastafarian culture, peace, love and ganja. Nesta Bob Marley,the man with a charismatic spirit, uncanny stage presence and immaculate musical talent, passed away in Florida — eight months after he was diagnosed with cancer — on May 11, 1981.
It’s hard to believe that Marley was only with us for 36 years, but he devoted more than half of his life to music. Marley was born in rural St. Ann Parish, Jamaica, on Feb. 6, 1945. When he was just nine years old, he met Neville “Bunny” Livingston (later Bunny Wailer) and Peter McIntosh (later Peter Tosh). By the age of 14, he dropped out of school to pursue music full-time, thus laying the foundation for Bob Marley and The Wailers……Full article HERE

The title and lyrics refer to the black U.S. cavalry regiments, known as “Buffalo Soldiers”, that fought in the American Indian Wars in the last 1800s/early 1900s. Marley’s song turned their fight for survival into a symbol of black resistance.

Row over Bob Marley’s Music (again).
(PLEASE FOLLOW BOTH Tumblr’s  HERE & HERE)
According to Barbados’ Nation News and the Jamaica Observer, two music companies are preparing for a legal battle over Bob Marley’s songs. Chris Blackwell’s Blue Mountain Music is set to defend their alleged misattribution, and diversion of income, among other things, in an attempt to retrieve “No Woman, No Cry” and other songs against plaintiff Cayman Music. The landmark trial date is set for May 12, 2014.
Cayman Music is the original, long-standing publisher for Bob Marley, one of the most successful reggae artistes of all time. They represented his catalogue from 1967 to late 1976. The defendants are the publishing arm of Island Records and sometime publisher of Bob Marley titles, from the mid-1970s to his death in May 1981.
Both publishers retain some of Marley’s work. Plaintiff Cayman Music was the publisher at the time the song was written but it was attributed to Vincent Ford, in an alleged “misattribution”. The move denied…[Full article HERE]
