    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.
    I remember eek-a-mouse.  Sounds cool in small doses but if you buy an album you’re like wtf have I done by song 4
    I'm like an opening band for your mom.

    Give Fat Freddy's Drop a go. Pasifika infused reggae. World class.

    One of the coolest reggae albums in my collection is Reggae Jackson, Smash Hits.  It's great music, the cover is so cool, and the play on words is priceless!

    Shocker that you have a bad opinion. 

    damn! I have ANOTHER enemy?
    Nah. Just pointing out garbage opinions.

    I recommend High Disciple. Instrumental group from NYC. Sort of a reggae-trippy-space-dub. If there is such a thing.

    Great recommendation. I have one of their’s on wax and it’s a great album, called “based on a true story.”

    Just got 5 records today. 

    Upsetters - Blackboard Jungle - one of the best dub records of all time. A lot of garbage pressings out there and unfortunately, I bought another one. 

    King Tubby - Dub From the Roots - A classic
    King Tubby - Explosive Dub - A nice compilation, there are probably better Tubby comps though

    Lee Perry - Scratch
    Lee Perry - Cloak and Dagger. - 2 more classics from Perry. GOAT

    After Marley, Peter Tosh has always been my favorite. HIs voice is perfect.



    I really dig HR from the Bad Brains reggae records.


    1991- Hollywood Palladium, California with Temple of the Dog, Soundgarden, and Alice in Chains -RIP Magazine Show Oct. 6th
    1992- Lollapalooza, Irvine, California
    Nothing since then. I suck.
    2016- Fenway Park, Boston - Both glorious nights
