    Also if you go to live365.com which a 24hr online radio station and search for reggae you get will get a lot stations to choose from. Then within each station as each song plays they'll list the the artist name and song. Comes in really handy when looking for some great songs. Cheers [​IMG]

    Yeah, that's the only reason I heard of him. Can't lie. RAS records used to be (not sure if it still is) headquarted down in D.C. great label. Big fan of Mikey Dread's "Happy Family" album too. Not sure if Lucky Dube was mention so I'll do so now.

    Has anyone heard Madlib's "Blunted in the Bombshelter"?? Great track with snippets from a ton of artist.

    I like it a lot. A lot of his stuff can be hit or miss though. This one was a hit.

    By far the best reggae compilation ever. Only issued once so it is expensive but I suggest you lock it down if you like reggae.
