    Dennis Brown
    The Congos (you must get Heart of Congos-arguably the best reggae album of all time-anything from lee perry's Black Ark production is ESSENTIAL...this includes the classics Police and Thieves by Junior Murvin and War In Babylon by Max Romeo)
    Garnet Silk
    Bitty Mclean
    Beres Hammond
    Gregory Isaacs
    Tarrus Riley
    Buju Banton's Til Shiloh is a MUST

    I could go on and on-but I'm assuming you are interested in mainly singers not deejays.
    if jah is the ship, we smile at the storm.
  • Buju Banton
    Steel Pulse
    John Brown's Body
    Jimmy Cliff

    Pepper, Slightly Stoopid, and Tomorrow's Bad Seeds are all also good but qualify more as surf-punk/raggae

    Ex: Kiddus I...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i2GwohNFo6s

    I like this list, especially Black Uhuru, Steel Pulse, and Yellowman. I loved Pato Banton too (unti lI saw him live :cry: )...he preached and interrupted every song to talk. It seemed like he didnt complete one song!

    I'd also like to throw in Eek-A-Mouse. Love them.

    Hearing music you don’t listen to regularly often sounds like that, where it’s hard to distinguish one song from another. But that’s a function of how the human brain acquires language.

    Language is made of sounds. If your brain is unfamiliar with those sounds, they all sound the same. For example, if a person doesn’t know Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Chinese, Japanese, Farsi, or Hebrew. To that person’s ear, they would not even know WHAT language is being spoken if the hear any of those languages. They wouldn’t know the difference between Chinese and Japanese, or Spanish and Portuguese. But those languages are DEFINITELY different and distinct from each other. If the person hears someone speaking Farsi or Hebrew, they may not even know where one word ends and the next one begins.

    BUT, if that person spends enough time learning the language, and HEARING the sounds that make up the language, those sounds and thus the language become more distinct and understandable.

    I had a very similar experience when I first started listening to jazz. Couldn’t make sense of any of it. But the more I listened, the more I understood. The same thing happened with hip-hop for me.

    The key is to find a “Rosetta Stone” for whatever music genre it is that you want to explore, and use it as a launching off point for the rest. For me, the album Kind Of Blue by Miles Davis was my “Rosetta Stone” for jazz. It opened up the entire vocabulary of jazz for me. That’s not to say that all jazz sounds like that album, but that the album gave me the basic vocabulary to go out, listen to more jazz, and HEAR it.

    For reggae, Bob Marley’s album Legend is that sort of “Rosetta Stone” album. It’s no wonder that it’s often the ONLY reggae album that a person owns or knows. The same is true for Miles Davis’s Kind Of Blue.

    I can’t remember what album was my entry into hip-hop, but I’m sure it was connected to the Beastie Boys or the Roots. Which makes sense, because those two groups both use live instruments, so it was easier to connect to them, because my brain was more familiar with those sounds.

    By the way, there are people for whom all rock music sounds the same. Some can’t even distinguish it from country music.

    SOJA out of Virginia who are getting bigger and every year. Met them after a show, spoke for hours here in S Florida where they opened for my friend Michael Franti.

    It stands for Soldiers Of Jah Army, give them a try.

    No one mentioned Toots and the Maytals?  Check them out.  It's pretty much half of Sublimes 40OZ to freedom album.

    Give the Agrolites a shot, Damian Marleys Jamrock was really good.  

    Cham Ghetto Story.

    Ganja Farmer Marlon Asher.

    Those are some older good ones.

    Anybody say Eek-A-Mouse yet? 

    And I don't see much dancehall representation. Shabba is a dick, but his shit hits hard.

    Edit: Just saw Johnny Pistachio mentioned Eek-A-Mouse.
