Anyone listen to Reggae? Share some good tracks! - Page 4

post #46 of 173
^Classic-Lee Perry. I love that roar/moan sound on the track 'Roastfish & Cornbread'.

Not to offend reggae purists but I enjoy this raggamuffin album (dancehall with the casio stylee).



Selah Collins - Pick A Sound
Kenny Knots - Watch How The People Dancing

my favorite Scratch mouth sounds are in this album: http://www.head-fi.org/forums/5915635-post20.html

in the chorus of "Nice And Easy", he's making really funny "wop-wop" sounds

and Susan Cadogan has such an amazing voice anyway...some say it's the best female reggae album, when Scratch tries some crossover hell breaks loose!

this everlast album also got the remastered+bonus tracks treatment: Peter Tosh - Legalize It

SQ is really most excellent! even completely sober, it makes you feel terribly high in some reggae concert right in Jamaica in the mid-70's....that's where the true time machine lies ^^

I never really liked his next albums, or Marley's stuff(Chris Blackwell is indeed a vampire), but this album really hits the spot

Personnel: Peter Tosh (vocals, guitar, keyboards); Al Anderson, Donald Kinsey (guitar); Robbie & Ras Lee (harp); Tyrone Downey (keyboards); Aston "Family Man" Barrett, Robbie Shakespeare (bass); Carlton Barrett, Santa (drums); Rita Marley, Judy Mowatt, Bunny Wailer (background vocals).

wow, Alton Ellis("I'm still in love w/ you girl")' son did some pretty cool stuff too: Amazon.com: Noel Ellis: Noel Ellis

"Memories" sounds really good.

pretty amazing! you can almost hear the Black Ark sound, very impressed

next time they tour in my town, I might give it a shot, considering Scratch is out of his mind now...this might be as good as it gets. They sing "thief in the vineyard", "congoman", open the gate" etc etc

of course their latest album released a few months ago w/ Scratch was the icing on the cake.

haha, this one cracks me up: YouTube - Space Flight - I Roy

Scratch is the captain and I-Roy the flight attendant

it comes from: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Jungle-Lion-.../dp/B0000507KU

I recognized that tune 'Space Flight', leeperry. It's on this Madlib -'Blunted In the Bomb Shelter' mix album using tracks from the Trojan catalog. Irie Irie...

ah, nice! but does he play the songs in full? I hate it when Kenny Dope makes mixes w/ 1 min of each song...it's like "hey lookee, I got good sound but I ain't sharing it"

damn, this one is masssssive: Lead With The Bass III - United Reggae

that will shake your speakers !
I can feel my cans shake for sure

and I like the CD cover and inlay card...they explain how to build big speakers for sound systems hah, Jah Shaka in the UK would be proud of this CD!

PS: damn, it's really a banger, very innovative and fresh sounding..and production quality is very very high to my ears.

Yah it is a tease but it lead me to discover some Trojan gems I would have not known.

Feeling Dub today:

King Tubbys Meets Rockers Uptown - Augustus Pablo

DJ Muro has tons of heavy funk/dub reggae mixes, and he does play the songs in full...he's a star

and BTW, I'm truly blown away by this russian dub band: YouTube - caribace(luckily there's no russian talk on their CD's..)

listening to their "Dub History Part 3" CD and to the UK DUB compilation I just mentioned, 70's jamaican dub sounds terribly dated

I never really liked Tubby's for instance, except for a few killers like "guilding star" of course and most of his work w/ Augustus Pablo.

Required listening:

Peter Tosh - Mama Africa, Wanted Dread or Alive, Equal Rights

Bob Marley - Exodus, Uprising, Kaya

UB40 - Signing Off (no laughing - the first UB40 record was some of the darkest, stankiest Reggae ever made)
post #60 of 173
oh, c'mon you forgot Tosh's "legalize it"! yes, the first UB40 is amazing, and there's some versions w/ tons of bonus tracks...essential listening indeed
