most of my reggae is on vinyl, but you can pick a lot of them up on CD. A few faves:

Culture: Two Sevens Clash
Yabby Yu & The Prophets: Beware Dub (good luck finding this on CD! I never have )
Bob Marley & The Wailers: Rastaman Vibration/Burnin'/Catch A Fire
Prince Far I & The Arabs: Cry Tuff Dub Encounter Chapter 111
Bunny Wailer: Blackheart Man
Mighty Diamonds: Right Time/Planet Earth
Dr Alimantado: Best Dressed Chicken
Lee 'Scratch' Perry & The Upsetters: Super Ape
Delroy Washington: I Sus
Sugar Minott: Black Roots
Black Uhuru: Red/Chill Out

Best raggae album ever: The Congos - The Heart Of The Congos.

Maybe together with Burning Spear - Marcus Garvey and Bob Marley - Catch A Fire.

The Congos - The Heart Of The Congos.

the dub album of 2 seven clash is just too good

I've located a copy of the Yabbi Yu CD, I'll give my impressions ASAP.

I hope you heard the remastered extended version of Super Ape : HIPO

their copy of War Ina Babylon would also qualify as one of the best in my collection, and their george faith/black uhuru releases are also pretty mind blowing

but truly I think "unconquered people" and "true democracy" are some of the best roots reggae available. unconquered was recorded at tuff gong w/ marley's musicians, and it just sounds too good w/ the 3 IV guys singing on top

and this one is beyond words, as good as "war ina babylon" IMO :

hah it's not reggae, and it's not black uhuru either...without Puma Jones and Michael Rose, black uhuru does not exist

Sly & Robbie use Michael Rose impersonators(Junior Reid, etc), and release crap using the group commercial name(that they own)

I went to see them in 2001, and I also saw Michael Rose the year after....Junior Reid can't clash Mykael Roz

this guy is also a serious rocker : Matthew McAnuff - Be careful - Google Search

the new school is coming, he's really got mad talent IMO

leeperry, you found Beware on CD? Impressed - I've kept an eye on the racks for years but never found it. The wrong racks obviously! I'd be grateful for label & cat number....

I need to check out Vibration, and the expanded Super Ape. Thanks.

I agree. No Puma? No Rose?! No Black Uhuru!

x2 on Linval Thompson, Toots and Moses, Isaacs of course.

allmusic ((( Beware Dub > Overview )))

"soon forward" and "cool ruler" are indeed 2 killers from Gregory Isaacs...just perfect!

Have you listened to any Matisyahu. He is exactly reggae but he definitely has that vibe.

The only reggae I have ever listened to is a couple of Bad Brains songs.
