ANTH 210 10-20-05, lecture #8  Talking about influences that went into reggae music, the musical precursors, the evolution of Jamaica  music, into reggae, more concentrating on the stuff that preceded it, for it diddn’t come out of no where.  • Mento – kind of country dance music, although little made it onto records, it had a strong influence on later  Jamaican music.  o “Mango Time”- demonstrates what Mento music sounded like.  o “Penny Reel” – (1964 Eric Morris ska song) – example of the influence of mento on later forms of  Jamaican music  Big bands had a large impact when the sound systems were introduced, and two jobs became acuminated,  one was the dj, the man who introduced and talked over the records, and the other was the selector, the  man who played the records and minded the volume controls.  • ‘Shake Rattle and Roll” – (Fats Domino) - an important example of the sorts of influences sweeping over  Jamaica during the 1950s.  • “Boogy in my Bones” – an illustration on Fats Domino and other r&b musicians had tremendous influence.
