For the playlist to accompany Small Axe's latest issue, we stayed close to the Jamaican 1960s special section. And yet the afterlife of music—Peter Tosh's "I Am That I Am" (1977) or even Popcaan's "Where We Come From" (2014)—suggests that the 1960s as an era lived much longer than its nominal decade.
