Dude this is reggae not funk.

Bob all the way.

Default Sorry

Sorry fellas but ALL of you guys HAVE to be speaking subjectively. In terms of caribbean culture, which is now being re-examined in terms of what is caribbean, this question is foolish. Firstly it is an apples to oranges comparison, secondly they both were pop, that can be seen for instance in recordings of Bob and Jimmy that use Synths that were not reggae but more pop... I stray Finally Bob's music was lyrically more deeply embedded in the Rastafarian movement and in the affairs of the diaspora, Jimmy dealt with more the poetry and "niceness" of island life.

Just I opinion.

Yeah. Like in his song about Vietnam, right?
