Hey


i'm a big lover of Jamaican music from the 60's and 70's in particular, and when you talk to others (non reggae-heads) about this Bob Marley always comes up.
Now thats no surprise, he left an amazing legacy and richly deserves his status... however i cant help thinking it sometimes gets in the way of folk exploring other artists from an incredible tradition (especially being from such a small island)... i'd like to share a few of my favourites, please do like wise folks!


The Mighty Upsetter, Lee Scratch Perry, simply the greatest in my opinion - pioneer and jester, prolific and brilliant which ever side of the mixing desk he was:





The Congos - their "heart of the Congos" album is one of the sweetest things i ever heard:



Eric Donaldson, maybe my favourite vocalist of all time



and then the classic riddims..foundation stones

like Satta



and Java (Impact All-Stars version)



Too many to include, and of course many mighty greats are missed out - please add
