If you are new to Reggae I would suggest Dub at a later date as it's an acquired taste. You forgot Augustus Pablo

I would like to add U-Roy and Steel Pulse to jackhammer's list.
Also the Trojan box sets are an excellent place to start, and they're dead cheap.

Its not reggae as such but you might like compliations by soul jazz records - 100% dynamite, 200% dynamite, 300% you see where im going with this . . .
Mix of Ska, Soul, Rocksteady, Funk and Dub and they are the best CDs i own!

Jackhammer was clearly MB's reggae expert, but in his absence, and with a nine-year gap since he posted his extensive lists, perhaps there are some new recommendations to be made.

^ This album is so much better than I expected, Maajo; an excellent rec.

I'm not a great fan of the insistant reggae beat, but these guys mix things up really well and keep the music interesting all the way. From now on, any time the conversation turns to reggae or dub, I'm gonna say, "Well, my favourite album is i & i survived", thus giving the false impression that I know what I'm talking about. Thanks!

Ok so these are really obvious recommendations for anyone who know a bit about reggae music but if you don't know these records already please give them a try.

If you don't find anything you like here, i'd suggest you try another era of jamaican music, be it rocksteady (before reggae) or more recent stuff...

Johnny Osbourne - Truths & Rights (try the title track and Jah Promise at least)

Dennis Brown - Visions

Max Romeo & The Upsetters - War Ina Babylon

Junior Murvin - Police & Thieves

Jackie Mittoo - Macka Fat (instrumental but so good you probably won't notice and enjoy it from the first second to the very last)

Abyssinians - Satta Massa Gana (excellent from start to finish)

The Gladiators - Proverbial Reggae (same thing)

Third World's 96 Degrees In the Shade, Steel Pulse's True Democracy and Prince Far I's Heavy Manners are a few more classics, definitely favourites of mine anyway. Well worth a look if anyone's curious.

The opening track 'Jah Glory' is a personal favourite; this album is indeed often overlooked for reasons unknown.
