I noticed that there is not many Reggae fans here... or maybe you’re just too chilled to bother posting...

I got into Reggae through my Dad... one of his work friends was a Reggae DJ in the 70's and 80's and gave my Dad a mix tape of one of his sessions... i was hooked from that moment on...

Anywho... just thought i'd start a thread to see if there are any likeminded individuals...

Some of my favourite artists include...













I’ve just realised I could go on all day

I was always a Pato Banton fan.

Steel Pulse was pretty good too.

Buju Banton!

FTW!
'til I'm laid to rest....ah...

Good, old reggae.

Oh yeah and Marley of course. But that's a no-brainer.

Yeah... if had to pick the main man of Reggae it would have to be Bob... Although a lot of Jamaicans i know still argue about Dennis Brown or Bob Marley... for me its Bob


Crakeur

From Burning flame...

one man's meat is another man's poison
But I've chosen the greatiast heights in life
That's laughter is where there lots of fun
Sorrow gone where the grass is green
I want no screwface passenger
Nightmare no I'm a sweet dreamer





Yeah man, tune

Possibly a bit strange and contemporary but I absolutely adore Matisyahu and his music.

Once you get past the fact he is a Hasidic Jew singing Reggae, the messages in his songs are amazing and always bring a smile to my face.

No mate... not strange at all... i think the guy is really good and bought his album as soon as I heard him


Surprised no one has mentioned Alton Ellis yet... another great


Oh... and...

John Holt
Al Campbell
Anthony Johnson
Cornell Campbell
Delroy Wilson

oh... and of course... the great Gregory Issacs


I took my misses to see Greg at the Jazz cafe in Camden about three or four years ago... great show although the years of abuse have caught up with the man.

Macka B is my favorite.

Favorite song


So many things I got to do, so many things I got to do,
I gotta,gotta do, I gotta,gotta do
gotta do, gotta do, gotta do, gotta do
I gotta, gotta.
Gotta keep my sanity, gotta face reality.
Gotta find my destiny, gotta know my history.
Gotta keep my dignity, gotta feed my family.
Gotta praise his majesty, gotta give thanks to the I in me.
Gotta keep my head up high, gotta reach out for the sky.
Gotta know the reasons why ,gotta get my piece of that pie.
Gotta try to tell no lie, gotta keep an eagle eye.
Gotta go to zion I, gotta give thanks to the I in I
Gotta do some good today, gotta walk in a righteous way.
Gotta hear what the father say, gotta, gotta, pray every day.
Gotta work to get my pay, gotta rest on sabbath day.
Gotta never go astray , gotta give thanks then I am o.k.
Gotta go for excellence, gotta show magnificence.
Gotta flow with the elements, gotta work with common sense.
Gotta make the people see, gotta be the best that I can be .
Gotta show humility, gotta give thanks to the I in she.
Gotta try and teach the youth , gotta make them know the truth.
Gotta show them it's a plan, gotta expose the other man.
Gotta make them overstand , gotta be the best they can.
Gotta reach that promise land, gotta give thanks to the I in man.

Chorus.

Gotta fight against evil, gotta set an example for the young people.
Gotta keep it showing, gotta take Jah light and keep it glowing.
Gotta keep on going, gotta keep seeking, gotta keep knowing.
Gotta keep on sowing, gotta reap fruit as the wind is blowing.
Gotta keep my peace of mind, gotta seek then I shall find.
Gotta let my spirit shine, gotta fight for what is mine.
Gotta keep myself in line, gotta look out for the signs.
Gotta do it all the time, gotta give thanks then I will be fine.
Gotta keep spreading my word, gotta make my voice be heard.
Gotta be free as a bird, gotta get what I deserve.
Gotta walk with blessed love, gotta reach those heights above.
Gotta hear some Reggae dub, gotta give thanks to the I in love.
Gotta give my heart, gotta give my soul, gotta give my life, gotta give my best.
Gotta meditate, gotta concentrate, gotta elevate, gotta pass the test.
Gotta use my brain, gotta, gotta, go through nuff pain.
Gotta do it all the same , gotta give praises to his name.

Hey Muckster, your welcome

Glad to hear there are some roots men on ATS. As a white Irish boy, I got into reggae when I went to Bermuda to visit a friend whose family moved there with the church to minister. There son was a white boy too who fell under the spell of the "One Drop" beat and spread the fever to me. Every Bob Marley cd later I was hooked. Then all the Peter Tosh offerings, Bunny,Culture, Nasio, Toots, Burning Spear Black Uhuru, and other miscellaneous artists here and there. Nasio has been compared to the next Bob, although he'll be hard to top. Anyway respect to the message and remember, "Come we go chant down Babylon one more time."
Give Culture a real chance. Joseph Hill is a very sincere and humble man, the epitome of the reggae roots message.
Peace
