« on: October 22, 2004, 06:55:39 PM »

*BLACK WOMAN --JUDY MOWATT (1980)
The title track of Mowatt's first solo album positioned her as a powerful spokesperson for Rastafari and feminism .

*GUESS WHO'S COMING BACK TO DINNER  -- BLACK UHURU (1981)
Originially released in the late 1970's as a solo track for lead singer Michael Rose , this expression of the obstacles facing young Rastas was recut by Black Uhuru and became one of their first signature hits .

*RALLY ROUND --STEEL PULSE (1982)
A musical crash-course for those who never read Marcus Garvey , and a call for solidarity among people struggling to survive in alien countries.

*PASS THE KUTCHIE --MIGHTY DIAMONDS (1982)
A massive number one in Jamaica ; the pop cover by Musical Youth , renamed pass de dutchie , was a worldwide smash (a "Kutchie" is a marijuana pipe ; a "dutchie" is a cooking pot) .

*ONE BLOOD --JUNIOUR REID (1989)
"You can be an African or an Englishman /...One Blood". This athem of unity , proclaiming that , no matter your colour , the same red blood runs through our veins , resonates with listeners around the world .

Johnny clark---too many to mention....aarrrrrrrrrr the subject depends on what people define as a classic?.....my classic artists are in different genre of reggae...for example you have classic stepper style roots, classic lover rock, classic dub, classic rub a dub songs, classic roots and culture tracks, and so on.....so the subject should be in more detail.......anyway enough of the talk.....

Pablo Gad --Hard Times
Don Carlos-Late nite blues
Jr Delgado- Warrior
Carol Thompson--Hopeless in love
Barry Brown--From Creation

There is one that beats them all:

"Girlie Girlie" with Sophia George. That's my favourite, and will allways be. But otherwise from that:

#1: Peter Tosh: "Bush Doctor"
#2: Pato Banton: "Baby come back"
#3: Aswad: "Shine", "You're no good"
#4: Maxi Priest and Tiger: "I know love"
#5: Johnny Nash: "I can see clearly now"

Don't know if all theese are from the 80's, byt they are classics anyways.

Bless..

Misgana,

Since it's a top5 80s tune selection here's mine....
But ofcourse i love Black Uhuru and some of the artiste you all have mentioned.

Dennis Brown - Money in my Pocket/Ah So We Say 1983
Money in my pocket first release was in 1972, most people know this version which i've mentioned of 1978.

Culture - Mr.Music 1986 album Culture in Culture

Don Carlos  - Young Girl
I luv her i luv har yeah....when she's walkin on d street all i can hear....This is from the album 1982 (Harvest Time). The pssst psst part used to crack me up as a kid.

Beres Hammond - I'll Let You Go
This is from his 1988 album (Have a Nice Weekend) my mom used to kill me with that tune. For those of you that don't know mr Hammand has been around since in the 70s.

Leroy Sibbles - Come Rock With Me /or known to some as Jump
L.Sibbles became famous as the lead singer for the Heptones, i don't know from which year this tunes is from, all i know it was a wicked dance tune when i was a kid. Did my research and i see it's on his 1997 album (It's not Over) [smiley=undecided.gif]weird i knew that tune long before then.

Misgana,
