Short story "Roots"
Often in the phase in which the year ends, I am kidnapped by inspirations and pushed to always create new things, new material (blogs, compilations...) obviously related to the musical world, as well as my great passion.
Other than Garage, Beat Rock 'N' Roll and allied genres, I've always been attracted by old and crunchy sounds in general, but especially by the Jamaican sounds of the golden years (soul, reggae, rocksteady...).
More and more enraptured by those sounds and with a great desire to relax, on a gloomy late evening not so long ago, I ask a friend of mine for information, he advises me to check out some good labels and compilations from the sixties / seventies of the aforementioned jargon ....
He, with pleasure, gives me some names of different labels, and that's how in the late evening, more and more curious, my searches in the maze "Roots" begin.
I have to tell you that from that moment, I was literally enraptured by those warm and enthralling Jamaican sounds, often seasoned with splendid soulful choirs and wonderful and often deep and melancholic lyrics.
I listen to many and many compilations of the genre these days, until (being already trained enough), given the large amount and the very beautiful material available, I decide to create some comps made by me (naturally without any pretense), the final result obtained quite like it.
I think a lot about posting them on my historical blog, but at the same time the idea that flashes through me is to create something that deals exclusively with the roots sound, without mixing it with my first love or Garage / Beat...
After a thousand thoughts and rantings I decide to create my umpteenth blog, the latter dedicated to Roots sounds.
Well, I inform you that "BE COOL" is born today.
Within it I will only post comps created by me, giving vent to my taste and creativity. At the moment I don't have and I can't find other words to tell you about it, I hope you like my new ideas and gladden your eardrums.
P.S. I will always continue to post in my first blog "Paradise of Garage Comps".
