Subject: RE: What's the diff btwn calypso and reggae?
Alex - Back to your question about Desmond Dekker. I have that particular LP in my collection and it fits my defination of reggae. No doubt someone will disagree.

You might also want to consider this question. If polka gets slow enough { imagine a Wisconsin polka band on ganja } doesn't it turn into reggae ? Just imagine Frankie Yankovic and the Wailers. It boggles the mind.
