Reggae College Trench Town is the third album for the singing drummer Wilburn “Squidly” Cole. Reggae College is the culmination of Squidly’s thirty year education in music. Starting with “Black Pain” and “Equal Rights…Where Are U”, Squidly lays his heart out in his music. A solid reggae beat provides a positive vibe to the powerful lyrics. “Strictly Rubba Dub”, featuring the vocals of Erica Newell, has an infectious beat that gets your feet moving and shoulders grooving. Your body and soul will be grateful for this long mix track. Cali-P. the Lyrical Faya lends his irrepressible talent to “Give Thanks and Praise”. Education, whether in the classroom or in the streets, comes first from family.
As the son of legendary ska/rocksteady singer Stranger Cole, and nephew of Tabby of the Mighty Diamonds, Squidly pays a special tribute to the heart of every family with “Ain’t No Love Like Mama”. Squidly holds true to his roots on this album, but adds bits of sound technology to keep the musical education fresh. Keep the musical education growing and flowing. Reggae College Trench Town is the perfect self-study course from a true professor of the pain and suffering that provides musical upliftment for the heart as well as the ears.
