CHRIS SALEWICZ- IN HIS BOOK ON- THE UNTOLD STORY OF BOB MARLEY- WROTE A LIE ABOUT – BARRINGTON SAYLES, AND RICARDO SCOTT-DECIDING TO LEAVE THE GROUP BECAUSE “THEIR VOICES WERE NOT STRONG ENOUGH”- A QUOTE HE CLAIMED TO HAVE GOTTEN FROM JUNIOR BRAITHWAITE. THESE ARE THE KIND OF LIES I AM TELLING THE WORLD ABOUT THOSE WHO WRITE THEM ABOUT US.

(c) IN RE: A REGGAE EDUCATION. TRACKING AND REVEALING THE LIES WRITTEN ABOUT TRENCH TOWN REGGAE AND OUR PEOPLE- RAS CARDO REVEALS THE TRUTH.

WRITTEN WITHOUT PREJUDICE WITH NO APOLOGIES.

THE REGGAE WORLD AND OTHER CONCERNED PARTIES MUST TAKE NOTE OF THE FOLLOWING. FOR YEARS I HAVE BEEN TELLING THE WORLD ABOUT THOSE WHO CONTINUE TO DISREGARD THE TRUTHS OF OUR REGGAE HISTORY AND CULTURE.

CAVEAT: THIS IS NOT A PERSONAL ATTACK ON THE AUTHOR. IT IS A REMINDER THAT THE TRUTH MUST BE TOLD WHICH IN ANY WAY AFFECT THE LIVES AND WORKS OF OTHERS.

NO DISRESPECT! NO HOLES BARRED.

CHRIS SALEWICZ- AUTHOR OF THE BOOK- BOB MARLEY- THE UNTOLD STORY-

ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED IN 2009- BY  HARPER COLLINS PUBLISHERS- GREAT BRITAIN.

AND AGAIN IN THE USA IN 2010 AND 2011- BY FABER AND FABER PUBLISHERS INC.

ISBN# paperback-978-0-86547-852-7 and hard copy 978-0-86547-999-9

ON PAGE  74- OF THE CHAPTER- TRENCH TOWN  ROCK- HE STATES:

” IN THE EARLY DAYS OF THE GROUP, OTHER POTENTIAL MEMBERS HAD BEEN BRIEFLY TRIED OUT: A COUPLE OF TENORS, BARRINGTON SAYLES AND RICARDO SCOTT,DECIDED FOR THEMSELVES THAT THEIR VOICES WEREN’T REALLY STRONG ENOUGH” ETC…

I AM THE RICARDO SCOTT HERE TODAY WRITING TO THE WORLD ABOUT THIS BLATANT AND EGREGIOUS LIE. JUNIOR BRAITHWAITE DID NOT TELL HIM NOR ANYONE THIS.

TRUTH BE TOLD- MY VOICE, AND THAT OF JUNIOR WAS THE BEST VOICES OF THE ORIGINAL WAILING WAILERS. AND MORE OVER- EVERYONE IN TRENCH TOWN AND BEYOND KNEW THIS TO BE TRUE.

I DON’T THINK MR. SALEWICZ WOULD WANT TO SEE MY EVIDENCE- BUT HE IS FREE TO CHALLENGE ME OPENLY IN THE EYES OF THE WORLD.

WHAT HE WROTE WAS A LIE, AND MUST BE CORRECTED- THAT IS MY CHALLENGE OF TRUTH.

HAD HE CHOSEN TO SEEK THE TRUTH, MAYBE THIS LIE WOULD NEVER HAD BEEN WRITTEN AND PUBLISHED.

IT SHOWS HOW CERTAIN INDIVIDUALS WILL ACT IN CARELESS AND WANTON(UNRESTRAINED) DISREGARD TO DISCREDIT OTHERS WHOM THEY WISHED WOULD NOT FACT CHECK THEIR STORIES.

THIS IS JUST HOW THEY CHOOSE TO LIE AND PROPAGANDIZED OTHERS IN THEIR WRITING AND SELLING OF REGGAE BOOKS AND ARTICLES. 

I WAS THE FIRST FROM THE ORIGINAL GROUP OF WAILERS TO SET FOOT UPON A STAGE AND SING BEFORE AN AUDIENCE.

REGGAE WRITER FROM JAMAICA- DERMOT HUSSEY WAS THE FIRST TO WRITE THE TRUTH ON THIS ISSUE OF VOICE- AND HE WROTE IN 1984- THIS ON THE WAILERS- IN AN ARTICLE COMPILED BY -TREVOR WYATT-

A YOUTH NAMED- “TADO”- HAD THE BEST VOICE OF ALL WOULD HAVE BEEN THE NATURAL LEAD, BUT HIS PARENTS INSISTED THAT HE STUDIED TO BECOME A DOCTOR, BOB REPLACED HIM..”

HE WROTE THE TRUTH, EXCEPT FOR THE INCORRECT SPELLING OF MY NAME- TADO FOR CARDO- FROM A MIS-PRONOUNCIATION THAT HE WAS GIVEN FROM A MORE RELIABLE SOURCE.

SO, MR SALEWICZ, AND ALL THOSE WHO WRITE ABOUT OUR REGGAE HISTORY WHILE ENJOYING THE FRUITS THEREOF- BE VERY CAREFUL WHAT YOU WRITE, AND IF YOU KNOW THAT IT IS  PLAUSIBLE OR INACCURATE IN ANY WAY- DO NOT LEAD OTHERS TO BELIEVE THAT IT IS TRUE.

THE TRUE HISTORY I HAVE IS IN THE DETAILS. IF YOU DO NOT KNOW IT, THEN DON’T WRITE IT.

HOW MANY TIMES HAVE YOU HEARD BOB MARLEY AND PETER TOSH SAID- ” THIS IS NOT A JOKE”.

THERE IS A LOT TO THAT STATEMENT. I WOULD NOT HAVE TIME TO TELL YOU.

I AM, RAS CARDO WHO CREATED THIS GENRE.  (c) A REGGAE EDUCATION. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED GLOBALLY.
