I'm making a playlist of music that gets my blood flowing. It currently has exactly one track: "Welcome to Jamrock" by Damien Marley (yt
). Help me find more music that is similar in vibe, hardness, and in its ability to get a person hyped up! [more inside]

I want to tour Jamaica and learn about the history of the country, specifically focused on reggae music & culture. I don't want to stay in Resortlandia or do some kind of BS ecotour. Also, I don't drink. Can anybody tell me of a tour company or group that can help me do this? [more inside]

Recommend bass-heavy dub and dub/reggae-influenced dubstep, please! Not looking for wobbly dubstep/brostep, nor am I looking for traditional dub unless it's pretty bass heavy. [more inside]

I'm a big fan of reggae and Jamaican music (to say the least), and have heard many references in songs to marijuana being found growing on King Solomon's grave in reggae songs and writings by and about Rastas. Where does this legend come from? How old is it, does it predate Rastafarianism or not? Is there an actual location where Solomon's grave is supposed to have been found? [more inside]

Where's the best place in Jamaica to spend my life savings on Reggae music?
I am going to be in Jamaica for one day. My cruise lands in Ocho Rios. I have from 8:30am to 3:30 pm and I want to spend every penny I can spare on music I can't get anywhere else. Please help. Do I have time to drive/ride to Kingston? Do I need to go to Kingston? Or does Ochos have somewhere I can go? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
ps. I don't/can't do wax. I'm a child of the 80s/90s. CDs are where it's at.
pps. Any jerk places not full of tourists I should stop at along the way to my music shop?

Reggae fans- Please help me figure out the complete lyrics to "Words" written by Sangie Davis and performed as a duet w/ Lee "Scratch" Perry and the Upsetters some time in the 70s. It appears on several compilations. I have looked everywhere for lyrics with no luck. I have tried to muddle through the recording- no use..... please help. It is the most beautiful, haunting song......

During Tuesday Night's CSI:NY (the one with a girl stabbed by an ice-bottle), there was a song about midway through that had a catchy, reggae/hip hop beat to it. Vaguely remembered lyrics include something about people struggling, "my feet keep hurting," and "we have had enough." Despite those sort of downtrodden words, it had a very upbeat sound to it. Can anyone help me find it? Google searching has gotten me nowhere. It sounds new and like it would be popular, but I couldn't find it in iTunes top 100 songs either.

I have come to be interested in classic reggae (in a suburban, lame-o, non-stoner fashion). Whose work should I look for? I generally prefer secular (not roots) songs (like most of The Maytals's songs) to religious stuff (like Junior Murvin's). Who else should I look into? Don't be afraid to be obvious, because I've covered about half of the artists that I am familiar with in the above comparison. [more inside]

A friend of mine has a very large reggae collection of stuff that's unreleased and wants to start an online radio station. He swears it will be big and wants me to help him pull it off. He's talking thousands of listeners. Does anyone have any experience with this kind of thing who can tell me what the monthly bandwith expenses associated with streaming 128kbps to around 3000 listeners. The math I did comes out to about 384Mbps, which means we will need somewhere between an OC3 and and OC12. I can't get pricing without contacting a bunch of sales people that I really don't want to talk to yet, so if anyone knows what a monthly port charge for something like that with a petabyte of bandwidth each month would run please let me know. Also any advice from others that are doing such things currently would be great.
