Jackhammer will have some good ones for you. Check back this time tomorrow and he'll help you out I bet. In the meantime there's a good thread here worth checking out.

If you're posting in the music forums make sure to be thoughtful and expressive, if you're posting in the lounge ask yourself "is this something that adds to the conversation?" It's important to remember that a lot of people use each thread. You're probably not as funny or clever as you think, I know I'm not.

I refer you to this mixtape;

3. Damian Marley - Welcome To Jamrock
4. Steel Pulse - Your House
5. Peter Tosh - Stepping Razor

11. Third World - Jah Glory
12. U-Roy - Wear You To the Ball
13. The Simplicity People - Rhythm Style
14. Jimmy Cliff - You Can Get It If You Really Want
If it's specific albums you're after, here are five good ones to get you started;

Steel Pulse - Handsworth Revolution [if you like this, hunt down True Democracy as if your life depends on it]
Third World - 96 Degrees In the Shade
Black Uhuru - Red
Burning Spear - Marcus Garvey/Garvey's Ghost
Peter Tosh - Equal Rights

That's what I'd recommend anyway

I have always found the lovers rock of Gregory Isaacs a little too saccharine for me sometimes. I have a couple of albums by him but I have to really be in the mood for them. Nice list though and a couple of names I'm not so sure of.

I noticed on your first comp you had 10 ft Ganja Plant. They are fantastic, although I haven't heard all of there material yet. Have you heard Iration or Soldiers of Jah? Both are very similar.
