Under £16? Give in to temptation. Or you could always add a few more :whistle:

Just thought i would post this in case anyone else is prepared to take a punt as well . I have no idea what this sounds like but there are so many people that i love involved that for just over £5 its worth a gamble . Looks like it will be something quite dread and with Denis Bovell at the helm the sound should be good . Nice to have another album that features brother Rico very much missed .

Howdy folks...

not gonna lie here I am totally a one-trick-pony - when its roasting hot and BBQ season, there's nothing better than an ice cold one and some sweet reggae music.

So, bumping the thread for anyone to chip in some new and cool suggestions.

Cheers,

Ziggy Marley "Rebellion Rises".

My favourite Marley offspring is Stephen. The tune 'Chase Dem' is uncannily like his dad.

Re UB40, got a nice little story about them from ex-colleague. Apparently his mum used to be gigging extensively in this space and often crossed paths with them. They had a slightly better profile too, but both bands were unknown. His mums band were invited to a gig, but one of them was ill and so UB40 filled in for them. Anyway, turned out that was the night that the producer/record exec was there and UB40 got signed and the rest is history. I forget what he told me his mums band was. But a great story. I guess a roll of the dice in the music biz can change your whole life!

Been playing a bit of reggae lately, my favourite would be:

But I did come across this when searching for something else which I quite enjoyed:
