A “reggae cave” in Echo Park holds one of world’s biggest reggae collections

Jerry Sullivan sent me a heads up on a piece he’s running in his paper, The LA Garment and Citizen, about Roger Steffens and his love of reggae.

“Steffens has acquired, photographed and collected any reggae-related tape, film, CD, flier, drawing, poster—you name it—he’s come across for the past 37 years. He’s received a trove of memorabilia from friends and colleagues around the world as well. His cache includes what he describes as the largest Bob Marley archive in the world.”

The story comes from, which includes pieces from publications that cover many of LA’s ethnic communities. The piece was specifically written for CaribPress.
