Your Top THREE reggae albums
Lots of mediocre reggae out there but I'm trying to find the diamonds.
What are your top 3 favorite 'old school' reggae albums?
Catch A Fire is my number one so far.
check out; collie buds, damien marleys "jamrock", seeed, peter tosh,
tribal seeds, eek a mouse, gregory Isaacs, just for starters. all of their albums
are good mon!
Marcus Garvey by Burning Spear
East of the River Nile by Augustus Pablo
Police and Thieves by Junior Murvin (I just now saw he died four days ago, RIP)
live seeed in english
The Wailers - Burnin'
The Melodians - Rivers of Babylon
The Paragons - On the Beach
African Herbsman is the best Wailers record in my book.
Survival is also up there..
Culture - two sevens clash
The Congos - Heart of the Congos
All these except survival were produced by Lee Perry in the Black Ark. That might say something about my love of the murky production styles of Scratch. These albums are classic reggae gold.
For modern reggae:
John Brown's Body - Kings and Queens
Giant Panda Guerrilla Dub Squad - In These Times
King Tubby: Dub From the Roots
Jackie Mittoo: Macka Fat
You're entering a wonderful world, my friend!
I can't list just three albums. There are too many amazing albums. Everything listed below is top-notch old-school reggae. Most of the albums are absolutely essential.
Lee Perry & The Upsetters - "Blackboard Jungle"
Aston "Familyman" Barrett - "Familyman In Dub"
Jacob Miller - "Who Say Jah No Dread"
Keith Hudson - "Pick A Dub"
Lee Perry & The Upsetters - "Super Ape"
Various Artists - "Children of Jah"
The Congos - "Heart of the Congos"
Culture - "Two Sevens Clash"
Augustus Pablo - "Original Rockers"
Dadawah - "Peace and Love"
I don't have a top three.
Sizzla - Da Real Ting
Run it Red: Blood and Fire All-Stars
King Tubby -Rockers Almighty Dub
Dillinger - Ranking Dillinger
Survival - Bob Marley & the Wailers
Uprising - Bob Marley & the Wailers
True Democracy - Steel Pulse
Hard to choose:
Lee Perry: arkology
Black Uhuru: Chill Out
Gladiators: allmost the whole catalog
All subject to change on a weekly basis.;)
