Essential Reggae Classics/must-have Tunes Listings

MoonDawg

Selecta's, DJ's and Reggae Headz

PLEASE POST WHAT YOU BELIEVE TO BE ESSENTIAL REGGAE CLASSICS/MUST-HAVE TUNES THAT EVERY SELECTA, DJ AND REGGAE HEAD NEEDS TO HAVE IN HIS OR HER COLLECTION.

LIST YOUR SELECTIONS ONLY BUT DO NOT UPLOAD ANY SONG FILES TO THIS THREAD!
(It doesn't matter if you list either entire riddims or single tracks)

ALL LISTINGS SHOULD BE FROM THE TIME PERIOD 2000 AND EARLIER AND SHOULD BE IN THE FOLLOWING FORMAT:

For all Riddims:
Riddim Name-Year (if known)

Singles/Albums:
Artist Name-Song Title or Album Title-Year (if Known)

This should make it easy for those members to look up these songs should they want to purchase them for a local record shop or online!

The goal is to have 1 set location that new visitors as well as hardcore reggae headz can look to see what other Selecta's and DJ's rate up as being classic/essential tunes.

It will also help to free up the boards from repetitive threads asking for "classic tunes".
