    I don`t listen to much reggae, but theres this dub band I really like called Fat Freddy`s Drop and they got some pretty good reggae sounding tunes. All three of their albums are sweet, here are some gems:





    Not all their shit is reggae, they play jazz, soul, etc.

    This is your homework. I will cut it to 10 albums so I will exclude the Bob Marley albums and keep it one album per artist.

    Black Uhuru - Red
    Gregory Isaacs - Night Nurse
    John Holt - Police in Helicopter
    Max Romeo - War ina Babylon
    Burning Spear - Marcus Garvey
    Peter Tosh - Legalize It
    Lee Perry - Super Ape
    Sizzla - Black Woman & Child
    Bunny Wailer - Blackheart Man
    Wailing Souls - Firehouse Rock

    Those 4 are good. If you want more Marley look for Rasta Revolution and Soul Rebels, perhaps.

    Also if you like Reggae singers, Beres Hammond is a good option. Its hard to point to one album by him, either his self titled album or Love Has No Boundaries.

    I think Red is my #1 fav reggae album. You're going quick!

    For those others.....

    Junior Reid - Boom Shack-A-Lack
    Levy - Too Experienced

    I dont know if you want other than the classic 70s-80s stuff...I put up a Sizzla album. Buju banton - Till Shiloh is also a must and thats mid 90s. Can add Chaka Demus and Ini Kamoze.

    You cant rep yet? I can give you your silver.

    That Black Woman and Child one is indeed a standout. Thats why I added that to the list of 10 even though it came out 15-20 years after the other classics.

    I think thats all you need for recommendations and you should just branch out from there. However I looked through my collection and I left out some REALLY important ones:

    Jimmy Cliff - The Harder They Come
    Tenor Saw - Fever
    Augustus Pablo - East of the River Nile
    Satta Massagana - The Abyssinians
    The Congos - heart of the Congos
    Keith Hudson - Rasta Communication
    Toots & the Maytals - Funky Kingston

    and for Berrington Levy, get the Robin Hood album instead.

    Those are different. They are more dancehall than roots. Many Moods of Moses, Til Shiloh, and My Xperience are my favourite albums from each of those artists.
