Just Discovered Reggae
 
Well i have just discovered reggae and all its glory. I just felt like listening to some bob marley, and i have always liked marley. but while i was listening to him, i looked him up on lastFM and seen some of his related artists and downloaded some burning spear, peter tosh, jimmy cliff, and augustus pablo. AMAZING. i have fell in love with this genre. its super relaxing and puts me at ease.

if anyone can suggest some of their favorite reggae artists, i would certainly appreciate it.

Beleive it or not theres a lot more than just Marley out there.

Also there are many sub genres of reggae which you may like even more. For example i am a big fan of rock-reggae (lately Matisyahu and Rebelution) Or maybe you like roots reggae...its up to you.

Misty In Roots. A particular fave of John Peel's.

This is my fav reggae song YouTube - Black Uhuru - Thievery Corporation (Quality Beats)
I've been getting the box sets by Trojan with many different famous reggae artists. They are prob a good place to start looking. The Dub and Ganja reggae ones are dank.
