Never delved farther into it than Bob Marley: Legend, although I loved that record.

While I'm not reggae expert I certainly have a deep appreciation for the style.

At this very moment I'm listening to "Jonny Greenwood is the Controller"; a compilation reggae album put together by Jonny Greenwood (of Radiohead fame). It's a pretty good cross-section of various artists with the exception of the Legend Marley himself.

Nice selection. You should check out Dr. Alimantado.

Keith Hudson Pick A Dub
The Congos Heart of the Congos
King Tubby Meets Rockers Uptown

Essential reggae albums. Pick a Dub is the first dub record released, and the Congos made the best record at the Black Ark. There are some killer Lee Perry multi-disc compilations on Trojan too. The Tubby dubs of Augustus Pablo are his best work.

I used to be a huge fan of ska and reggae back in the day... Augustus Pablo Peter Tosh Desmond Dekker The Skatalites Steel Pulse Eek A Mouse The Ethiopians Alton Ellis Toots and The Maytals The list could go on. I actually saw Toots a few years ago. He was amazing... Dancing around and doing splits even at his old age. During a pause, my buddy yells out a request, "Pomps and Pride!" He tilts his head and thinks for a minute... "Ok," he says, and they blast into the song. It was an awesome night. ... Wait, how could I forget Laurel Aitken. Just too many artists to name.
