I know nothing about it, apart from Bob Marley obviously. Anyone recommend me any?
Lee Scratch Perry is very good, try an album called 'Super Ape'. Dub is a close relation to reggae, it is much heavier with LOADS of reverb and delay effects used, King Tubby is liek, the man.

Toots and the Maytels boy. There's an awsome 6 CD box set out there for less than Â£20 which is amazing. Daddy is of the greatest tracks ever. Also they did Pressure Drop which the Specials covered once.
Though not Reggae but Dub, King Tubby is well worth checking out. They didn't call him King for nothing.
Also, Lee 'Scratch' Perry obviously.
Damien Marley's Welcome To Jamrock single is also amazing, what I've heard of the rest of the album isn't so good...
The Harder They Come in Glasgows GFT about five years ago. Jimmy Cliff came along and did a Q and A and gave us a burst of song, great stuff.
I've got that live Misty In Roots album, JDT, and it's excellent. John Peel used to play stuff like Mankind from it.
Others to check out are
Peter Tosh-Legalise It
Linton Kwesi Johnson-Dread Beat And Blood
Burning Spear-Marcus Garvey/Garveys Ghost
Proverbs Extractions by Augustus Pablo
Anything by The Maytals
Buy every compilation they put out.
And get a really really big bass box.
Soul jazz are never wrong.
I dlowed some augustus pablo rockers meet king tubby to see what thats like and its pretty good. Is this dub as it has no singing? whereas reggae does?
