Download: Summer’s End Reggae Mixtape

I hate to say “end of summer,” but it really is almost over. School supplies are being advertised and the only perk is that I won’t die of heat exhaust (even in Oregon) and all the little twerps will be back in school.

I’ve compiled a playlist of all my favorite reggae songs, from the 60’s to the 90’s, originating from Jamaica, Africa and even France.

Reggae is universal, especially for people my age (and older) and one of the most fitting sound of summer besides relentless pop music.
