Day 118 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - John Brown's Body - Satisfaction Feeling
Are you pickin' up on the International theme we've had going on this week? Today we're going with something a little closer to home but still outside the realm of the usual spots one would expect to find reggae... this time we're talking Boston! John Brown's Body got together in the mid 90s and even though a lot of their music incorporates elements of ska, funk, hip-hop, etc, today's song is pure reggae and it is absolutely joyful. "Satisfaction Feeling" comes from their 2000 release This Day on the Shanachie label. Lots of horns, an upbeat message and a nice bassline; a great tune! Who would have thought a city in the northeast United States that's home to the hated Red Sox would produce such a great sounding reggae band?
