Reggae '76

This video is from an episode of the LWT arts series "Aquarius" from 1976, this episode on British reggae and narrated by Carl Gayle. Although the presenter states the show focuses on Brixton and Stoke Newington, it also features footage of Carnival and West London musician Delroy Washington as well as scenes from Chalk Farm recording studio. Part two features footage of Ijahman Levi, who released two albums on Island, Ladbroke Grove area locals Aswad and scenes from the Q club in Paddington. Great stuff!
