Actually, I hadn't. Had Dub Side of the Moon first, then Radiodread, and their most recent Beatles cover. Can't believe I missed this. THANKS! Must try and track it down. =) It's very much the mood they make that I love.

The magnificent 10ft Ganja Plant who I am forever banging on about in the forums. They are an offshoot of John Brown's body and basically get in the studio and write and record these tracks in less than a day sometimes. Pure organic rootsy dub.


Seeed are a German collective of musicians who frequently dip into Dancehall and have a commercial sound, yet their infectious rhythms and reverence to the original Reggae sound endears me to their sound:


I have posted this a couple of times but this thread gives me another excuse Freestylers are primarily a Breakbeat band but they dip into Hip Hop and Reggae occasionally with great results. If I am ever pissed off then I crank this up at home and bounce around the place.

It's frustrating that JBB's older and greater works are very inaccessible on the internet. The past 10 years have not been all that great for them. Ironically, 10 ft. Ganja Plant actually sounds more like JBB used to sound than JBB does now.

Yeah it is hard finding their work. I got their latest release and I thought it was terrible so I would love to hear some early stuff.

lol, Yeah, I would love to own it again. The first three albums: All Time, Among Them, and This Day are by far their best and the band went steeply downhill when singer/guitarist Kevin Kinsella left the band.
