Vital Spot started in 2001 at Geocities, back in the day when not even Google could find the lyrics of "Gwarn!" or any other Pato Banton song. So it was that the first Vital Spot (dedicated to Mr. Banton) was created, and all the lyrics that could be found in the CD booklets were transcribed. But still "Gwarn!" was missing :-( Big was the surprise when Mr. Patrick Murray (Pato himself) sent an email loaded with positive vibes and a ton of lyrics! G. W. A. R. N. spells GWARN! :-)
All biographies and discographies come from I&I own research. Many lyrics come from I&I own transcription, others are transcribed from the CD booklets, contributed by Reggae lovers all around the globe, or gathered from the World Wide Web. But no matter their origin, all lyrics are checked several times against the song recordings, and all corrections and contributions are always very much appreciated.
I love Jah's Reggae. I stand in love with it since I was 13. Everyday I am uplifted by Jah music and enlightened by Jah words. I know I will love Jah's Reggae all the days of my life. Then I&I will sing it for all eternity. This Vital Spot is for Jah and for everyone who loves Jah's Reggae.
