Extra Classic Gregory isaacs

Peter Simon is one of few photographers who have documented reggae from its early days all the way through the present. His photos of people like Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Toots and Sly and Robbie are some of reggae’s most iconic images, and his work illustrated one of the earliest and best known books on reggae, 1977′s Reggae Bloodlines: In Search of the Music and Culture of Jamaica.
