VP Records Launches Facebook Page To Countdown Jamaica’s

50th Anniversary of Independence

August 6th marks the 50th Anniversary of Jamaica’s Independence and VP Records is celebrating with the island’s iconic music. On July 31, the label will release an extensive 3 CD set Out Of Many, 50 Years Of Reggae Music – chronicling the genre’s evolution with an iconic hit from each year since 1962.  To coincide with this release and commemoration, VP recently launched a Facebook page for the “50 Days to Jamaica 50th” countdown:

The page features a daily post on the history of Jamaican music and pays homage to the country’s most iconic artists, producers and engineers – similar to the Out Of Many – 50 Years of Reggae Music release.

This 3-disc collection captures the essence of every era over the past five decades with 51 distinctive hits from artists including Lord Creator, Alton Ellis, Skatalites, Augustus Pablo, Dennis Brown, Culture, Eek-A-Mouse, Yellowman, Barrington Levy, Gregory Isaacs, Shabba Ranks, Chaka Demus & Pliers, Ninjaman, Beres Hammond, Lady Saw, Beenie Man, Sizzla, Sean Paul, Elephant Man, Tanya Stephens, Mavado, Gyptian and many more. The chronological collection includes extensive liner notes written by reggae historian Noel Hawks. He discusses the innovation and evolution of the island’s music, and how the iconic label VP Records – once Randy’s Record Mart at 17 North Parade in Kingston, Jamaica – played a crucial role in the production and worldwide distribution of these sounds.

Over the past fifty years Jamaica’s music has made an indelible mark as a cultural beacon throughout the world. Today, reggae is one of the most influential musical forms. VP Records wants to celebrate these achievements and show the world what a bright future lies ahead.
