Alright so I just started listening to reggae music lately and am trying to expand my horizons. I like soja, john brown's body, groundation, steel pulse, and toots and the maytals, and obviously bob; but what are some other good bands to get into? And what is the difference between dub and root reggae?
Ya just lost your right to sell Miller Highlife is what'cha did.
Dub is a genre that comes from reggae. There's lots of instrumentals in dub, with delays, echos and reverbs added to the beats etc. Check out King Tubby for an idea.
There is poetry in despair.
Roots is basically just old school reggae to today. Like Richie Spice who is mainly roots but also has some dancehall songs.

Richie Spice
Lucky Dube
Warrior King
Anthony B
Natural Black
Yellow Man These guys are all roots reggae.

Bounty Killer And these guys are all Dancehall artists.
Beenie Man
Vybz Kartel
Sean Paul
Choppa Chop
Burro Banton
