Default Reggae Covers

A few summers ago I saw Easy Star All Starz cover Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon. It was one of the first times they ever did Dub Side of the Moon live. Since that unbelievable performance, I've been obsessed with reggae covers. What do you know about 'em?

Strangely this is the better known version but I prefer the original more.

Fire on the Mountain - Reggae Celebrates the Grateful Dead

I think there are 2 volumes. They're pretty good.
