A MESSAGE FROM DR. DREAD
The Vermont Reggae Festival is a testament to the positive vibes that reggae
is capable of creating. Over the years many volunteers have worked
unselfishly to bring you great reggae music for FREE and to present it in an
environment which is aesthetically uplifting. This is obviously a labor of
love, and year after year, rain or shine, this work has gone on for you. I
feel fortunate to have been a part of this festival as a sponsor and also as
someone who has brought my family to the festival to share in the good vibes.
I feel lucky to know the people who put this show on - people who still
believe that raising people's consciousness through love and music are
important commitments in a positive life. Sales of this compact disc will
help the Vermont Reggae Festival to continue its work and we are asking for
your help. Any contributions you can make are greatly needed and your support
is welcome. Let your friends know they can help, and most of all, make sure
to come and enjoy this beautiful celebration each year. – Dr. Dread, Ras
