The First eBook from the Reggae Report Archives

My friend M. Peggy Quattro wrote a new book. Many of you may remember Peggy, she is an old Grovite (living in Savannah now) and for many years she was involved with the BID, Chamber and was Marketing Director of CocoWalk.

Peggy's career began May 11, 1981, assisting Don Taylor, Bob Marley’s manager. She revolutionized Reggae media in 1983 when Reggae Report Magazine was introduced as a way to spread the music and culture internationally.

Peggy now has released the first compilation of Reggae history from the Reggae Report Archives. Reggae Trilogy Vol. 1: 200+ 80s & 90 Artist Headshots is an entertaining, engaging time capsule that features 13 chapters of Reggae and Dancehall Headshots. Each collection begins with a personal and enlightening introduction by the Reggae pioneer. Volume 1's more than 200 promo Headshots depict the distinctive fashion, culture and lifestyle that catapulted Reggae and Dancehall artists onto the 80s and 90s world stage.

Thousands of promotional Headshots poured into Reggae Report for more than 20 years. As a fan and archivist, Peggy knew one day these photos would tell their own story. This wealth of photos will be delivered in three volumes of the Reggae Trilogy series. Crucial chapters include the Bands, Legends, Women, Singers, Groups, Dub Poets, Dancehall, Musicians, USA Reggae, International, Industry Pros, The Marleys, and Where Are They Now?. A rising teen superstar in the 80s, singer/songwriter/cultural studies scholar Nadine Sutherland contributes an inspiring and thoughtful Foreword.

Fueled by a passion to pass on this remarkable history to fans who have surfaced since that amazing time–before the Internet. Peggy believes the knowledge of Reggae’s roots is central to understanding the music’s current worldwide position and status. Reggae Trilogy reaches across generations–from ‘tweens and teens to seasoned fans and veterans. The timeline acts as a valuable tool for dedicated fans of Music, Caribbean and Reggae history, educators and students at all levels.

The Reggae Trilogy book is available as a Kindle book for $9.99. Available on Amazon here.
