Black Music Magazine

In the early 1970’s Black Music Magazine was the only publication that covered the world of Jamaican music. Each month the magazine published the Black Music Reggae Top Ten (singles & albums). We will regularly post these old charts on our website.
The charts were provided by Eric Denham, for which we thank him.
