"Boss Reggae" appears to be a term used by collectors to describe a particular style of upfront late sixties early seventies reggae understood by mutual agreement when the style is evoked by aficianados in discussion or demanded by them from revive selectors, much in the same manner that adherents to the particular style of roots reggae known as "Shaka style" know what they mean when they say it. Though the difference between "Boss Reggae" and what used to be called "Skinhead Reggae" appears be unclear to non-aficianados, we'll overlook this and point out that it's another barrage of vintage reggae across two CD's for well under a tenner! Hopefully, Record Collector's venerable Ian McCann can shed light on all this in his illuminating sleeve-notes... BOSS!
