Inity Weekly had the opportunity to check out See-I last weekend during their 4-night stint in the Rockies. See-I frontmen, Rootz and Zeebo (aka the brothers Steele) were so cool as to take time between performing, resting and enjoying the mountain highs, to share with us their top 10 reggae albums of all time.
The following albums have their own story, backed by recognizable voices of artists we know and respect. These legends took the responsibility of speaking for the oppressed and gave them a sense of power through their music. Not to mention compositions backed by talented musicians, these albums are a staple for the reggae novice to the enthusiast, the socially conscious, the activist, and the overall audiophile.
- The Story’s Been Told (1979) – Third World
- Night Nurse (1982) – Gregory Isaacs
- The Promised Land (1977-1979) – Dennis Brown
- Legalize It (1976) – Peter Tosh
- True Democracy (1982) – Steel Pulse
- Babylon by Bus (1978) – Bob Marley & The Wailers
- Jah No Dead (2003) – Burning Spear
- Sinsemilla (1980) – Black Uhuru
- Skylarking (1972) – Horace Andy
- Blackheart Man (1976) – Bunny Wailer
Can you relate? Are there any albums you would add or delete from the list?
Thanks to See-I and Andy Cerutti!
