About this item

Debut release from Austudy: "Burning It Up: Australian Reggae (1979-1986)". A
compilation surveying the influence of reggae on Australia’s preoccupation with rock, pop, post-punk and new wave between the years of 1979-1986. Much like the cross fertilization that occurred here in the UK. This selection of 8 obscure tracks originally issued on 7” records represent some of the earliest examples of reggae sounds in Australian recorded music. Comes with beautifully illustrated lithograph printed booklet. Highly recommended!
