Check out the song Jah No Dead accapella...

http://youtube.com/watch?v=BgeHnEoHFvg

The words are amazing if you understand the Rasta slang... I first heard this song when I was high and it all made sense. Almost made me cry, no homo.

Burning Spear is a Rastafarian/Reggae legend and he still hangs in the slums of Jamrock to connect with the people.

But word. Those two albums are great. Check em out...

that list just closed the thread (figure of speech)

other than that if you are just going to look in the store go with the green sleeve classics. they are the ones with the green CD cases that are see through.

Toots & The Maytals have a lot of classic material.
