It's all good. The mention of ol' school and Bob Marley tells me that you prefer the roots/rasta aspect of reggae. In retrospect, Bob Marley introduced many of us to Reggae Music because of his worldly reach. To many, he was the face of Reggae Music. I worked at a music store many moons ago near a cruise ship dock. Whenever tourists would come into the shop, they would ALWAYS ask about Bob Marley before leaving. And by that time, Bob was already dead (rest his soul) - and there was many other great reggae artists and bands out there. Another popular and powerful artist is Bunny Wailer; one of the original wailers. Soul Rebel is one of my favorite tracks! You can give him a listen.

Good call, I like that track.

Yeah, I like the mellow stuff. I don't even care much for "Get up, Stand up" by Marley. I prefer tracks like "Jammin" and "So much Trouble...".

Unfortunately, I don't know the names since I used to stream Pandora at work. I remember at one point realizing that 90% of Sublime songs were covers and I tended to like the originals from old school reggae artists as I came across them on Pandora.

So I guess the old school stuff, really.
90% is a bit high lol more like 15 or at highest 25% although they did do a lot of covers. Specifically on 40 oz to freedom. Robin The Hood is all original stuff and self titled one cover, "Pawn Shop"

The thing about Sublime covers too is that they always a really unique flair to them. Just listen to We're Only Gonna Die For Our Own Arrogance. Completely different than Bad Religions version.

I alway appreciated Sublime's originals. I also don't remember ever hearing vocals like that before them.

Hell yeah Bradley had a very unique delivery, you ever see any of their live videos? Bradley freestyles a lot and just vibes you can tell he was having so much fun up there.

Have you heard his latest song? It's called, Dem Lucky. Check it out on Youtube. I kind of sounds old school to me. I like it. I like the song he did with Stephen and Damien Marley, Jah Army. Wanna Be Loved, was the first time I had ever heard of Buju Banton. He's also done some songs with Beres Hammond. I particularly like, Pull Up. Although he is very popular in JA and likely known to people into reggae, more so dancehall music, I wouldn't say he's as well known as Bob Marley. I don't think I've ever met anyone who hasn't heard of Bob Marley.
