yes, pressure drop is a wicked song. but just so i can be a anal prick, i need to mention that it aint reggae, its ska. second wave.

now, reggae tunes. perhaps not classics according to popular belief, but defo for me:

black uhuru - youths of eglinton
bob marley - burning and looting
max romeo - one step forward
junior marvin - police and thieves
Linton Kwesi Johnson - blood song
lee scratch perry - dreadlocks in moonlight
Yabby you & horace andy - undivided world :inlove:
susan cadogan - do it baby
sister nancy - bam bam < samebassline as ring the alarm!
bad brains - i and i survive.
Jonny Clarke - rebel soldier


i'll stop now, coz my list of classics could consume the whole board. let me know if you want more.

ni**a please! :teeth:
this aint even an LP. its a post humus compilation...
Its jokes man, Legend is proper reggae stereotype. every guy i talk to about reggae, goes "yeah, i LOVE reggae, you know bob marley ? that legend album is great"...
bob's best lp imo is small axe.

damn, im getting well nerdy...need a joint..

i checked for pato banton n found a tune called gwarn though. i thought you just spelt it wrong, lol.

yeah I maybe did, must've been over 10 years ago that it came out...

Remeber Pato Banton? Proper shit cheesy reggae-pop, did that one and "Baby come back" (probably name wrong again)

i think this is a grey area of reggae. police in helicopters was originally sung by john holt. there might have been a eek a mouse version as well, but the song got famous by the Holt version.
