Have you checked out "The Dub Side of the Moon" by the Easy Star All Stars? One of the best reggae dub albums in my opinion. It's basically a cover of Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon, but it's incredibly well done!

It's a lot more than that, it's like a huge tribute to Floyd, a complete re-imagining of Darkside and they even do some cool reprise versions of a few songs. Easy Star All Stars are so awesome, Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Dub Band is also epically awesome.

Easy Star All Stars also does covers of the Beatles.
They have a CD called Reggae Mondatta or something like that, which covers The Police.

I love Sly & Robbie's cover of the Led Zeppelin classic D'yer Mak'er. Sly's crisp one drop drumming is a striking contrast to John Bonham's sledgehammer drum sound on Led Zeppelin's original version.

The vocalist is Mark Ice, a relative newcomer to dancehall music scene. Ice has sweet sounding voice than reminds me a lot of Johnny Clarke one of the first generation root reggae stars of the Seventies.

I love this cover of Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here by African reggae artist Alpha Blondy.

Mos Def has an excellent album called Mos Dub. I think it's a mix tape. Not strictly covers per se but amazing mashups of Desmond Dekka and Jimmy Cliff with Mos Def lyrics. mixtapetorrents (dot) com has it I think.
