Need some good reggae

Discussion in 'Recordings [BG]' started by AmazingGracePlayer, Apr 5, 2009.

  1. I'm looking for some good, upbeat reggae or some reggae/hip-hop combination of some sort. Bob Marley is good, but I've been listening to him for ages, and it's starting to get boring. I also have been listening to Stephen and Damian Marley, Steely Pulse, and Third World. Any other recommendations?

    A huuuuuuge +1 on Peter Tosh. My company is in the process of putting together a dance and a type of cover for Legalize It. Amazing: Peter Tosh is it.

    Pick up "Studio One Rockers" on Soul Jazz Records. That one compilation will open a lot of doors for you.

    If you've never listened to 10ft. Ganja Plant and John Brown's Body then you've missed out on the some of the best modern reggae. Go buy 10ft's CD "Hillside Airstrip" off of itunes RIGHT NOW.

    You will thank me.

    all great suggestions. might i add israel vibrations (roots) and augustus pablo (dub). also, the specials are great - it may not be reggae according to purists, but they play great upbeat ska.

    +1 for Toots!

    I dig reggae comps. Pick up a couple Trojan box sets for some old schooly reggae.
