Anyone listen to reggae??

Postby jeremy » Fri Jun 20, 2008 11:33 am



After going to a couple of reggae shows in the area and listening to some here and there I have found myself really digging this. (I like all sorts of music, but probably never listened to much reggae outside of a couple of marley songs) I usually end up listening to the digital music reggae channel while I work and come across some good songs this way.

If anyone else likes it, any songs you can recommend??

Thanks

I listen to some

It's a really diverse genre, though. What kind of stuff do you like?

check out some Peter Tosh

Bob and Ziggy Marley

Slightly Stoopid and Matisyahu (live at stubbs) are also good.

Normally I like all kinds of music, really.
But so far, I guess maybe the dancier stuff? and some of the slower (three little birds) type stuff?



and to the others:
Thanks for the suggestions so far, I'll check them out!

Israel Vibration was Bob Marley's favorite reggae band. :) Check them out. Black Uhuru have some great dub stuff. Max Romeo and the Upsetters are good as well for a classic Reggae feel. Junior Murvin (not to be confused with Wailers guitarist Junior Marvin) did some interesting stuff as well, most notably the song Police and Thieves, which was covered by the Clash on their first album. He has a really high voice, and his music is good to relax to. If you want to really sample some old school reggae, get yourself the Lee Perry box set. Perry was a producer who did stuff for pretty much all the reggae bands and pretty much invented dub. As a matter of fact, if you get the Perry box set, you'll be able to hear stuff by all the above mentioned bands, as well as Bob Marley and others.

The double disc "The Harder They Come" soundtrack is a great sampler of reggae and ska. It's a veritable who's who of classic stuff.

Buju Banton, Bounty Killa, Beenie Man, Isreal Vibration, The Natty Love Joys, the Marley clan, and Garnett Silk are all in heavy rotation on my ipod. I lived with a dude from the Bahamas while in college and he turned me on to his culture. 8)

Not really reggae, but I like Roots Manuva. It's English hip hop, but he rhymes reggae style. Same for MIA.
