The new roots reggae phase of Vivian Jackson, and his social
role in public entertainment.
The social role of Vivian Jackson, popular known as Yabby "U"
- Writer, Producer and Directors of V. Jackson Recording Co. Ltd.
To begin, his music are introducing a new phase in the development of
reggae roots song, his phase has a nature organ of mass communication
and strengthen demand of "reggae roots" in the world, never
before reggae demonstrated its great potentialities in mass communication
as when Vivian Jackson present his album, Conquering Lion.
As a result, both inside and outside of the music industry, there is an
increasing recognition, that his music have an essential role to play
in social life and that the freedom of his music is important, because
of what it can do, freedom find its meaning not only in liberty but also
in responsibility. As the leader in the music industry, and have publicly
acknowledged many time,
we give his phase potentialities.
In the past V. Jackson has faced difficult problem in defining his responsibilities
in this business, but believing in the power of the reggae music which
is so widespread that they have been drawn in to conflict between those
who are with the idea of change and would like music to depict the realities
of life, both moral or social.
Note that we have not made exaggerated claims about the power of the reggae
but the influence of Yabby 'U' phase of the reggae roots is both industrial
and commercial mass communication to public undertstanding. Undoubtedly
Yabby 'U' phase will be the most vital area for future research. We do
not know the exact nature of the influence of his music or the conditions
under which the music are effective, but the practical limits to the power
of his phase are as yet scientifically mass entertainment.
The superseding of Vivian Jackson records is not known locally due to
production code. Long before the establishment of Vivian Jackson Recording
Company the group with an interest in reggae roots songs adopted the policy
of co-operation with the industry at every possible point. Yabby 'U' had
received the support of these successful groups, and is most constant
and active being international. Having being created with musical guidance,
the reggae phase of profit group production code was invested with great
expectations, the first public hint of Vivian Jackson reggae roots phase
was introduced in the album.
