Out of print for over ten years, Roots Knotty Roots returns as an online database in partnership with Reggae Fever.

RKR is the most accurate, comprehensive discography of Jamaican singles by far. It is much larger and more accurate than former editions, with over 91,000 listings covering the years 1953-1995. There is also much more documentation about each record. B sides are fully described, and through descriptions of rhythms, musical origins and genres you can get a much better feel for the music itself. And of course it is a repository of matrix numbers, with over 32,000 listed, it is the best record finding tool available. RKR is fully searchable and contains a lot of information you will not find anywhere else.
