Hey does anyone listen to reggae? One of my coworkers at umgd had me listen to the new cd from Toots and the Maytals. Its called "Light your Light" and its pretty good. I don't usually listen to reggae, but Toots has a unique sound. You should check it out! Here's their myspace link http://www.myspace.com/tatm

A lot of people love reggae, but few really listen to it.

Wrong sub-forum, too.

Definitely, so many people think it stops at Bob Marley.
Any Dub fans here? Man, it's such good chill out music. King Tubby, King Jammy, Augustos Pablo these guys were pioneers for electronic music. True masters.

Yeah, but I've gone off it recently and started listening to roots more.

^Yeah Marley's sons have a lot of cool tunes.

Now this song I love so much. Such a beautiful voice and girl and a classic tune, I really need to get her album one day. Does anyone know any other reggae artists like her? y'know slight Motown tinged reggae.


Not really Mo-town but still. This the sort of thing you're looking for?

Anyway I dont think I'll ever get tired of this song, no matter how much it's been played over the years, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1OzdpnhrM8k

^Nice one's guys. That Louisa Mark one is great, I swear female vocals & reggae go so well.

Yeah if you want more stuff like that, then check out Lovers Rock.

It's basically the genre Louisa Marks belongs to, and often has alot of women vocalists.
^Cheers man. I've just been looking into lovers rock, just what I was after I haven't actually heard about the genre up until now.

Bunny Wailer's "Dreamland" sounds a lot like lovers rock.
I dont know if it'll interest you, but virgin megastores are doing a big sale on Trojan compilations. there loads of them, 2-disc albums. They're 6 quid each and theres a couple of lovers rock ones there.

They have all sorts of reggae/ska/dub etc. though.

Love reggae. Bob Marley being the obvious one, though I'm starting to get into Toots and the Maytals. I have Light Your Light, as well.

Used to be heavy into Marley. I must have about a dozen and a half albums, altho Riding High is really the only one I listen to regularly nowadays. Otherwise my reggae is limited to dub. Mad professor, Lee scratch Perry, A new breed of dub, Dub side of the Moon, Trojan dub, etcetc
