Video Hijack: Max Romeo “Me Want Man”

Max Romeo was one of those artists that had hits throughout the decades in many different styles. He recorded some wicked early Reggae and of course had massive hits in the Roots reggae era as well. Here he is with a recording from 1969. The lyrics tell the story of a girl talking to her mama and papa about simply wanting a man. Or is it so simple?

I've been involved in the Los Angeles music scene since at least 1995 going to shows, promoting, spinning records and running labels. Ska and Early Reggae are my passion among other things of course.
