This entire album will have you on your feet dancing to the infectious beat of reggae. This is reggae at it's best, from Toots and the Maytals to Peter Tosh every song is terrific. It is impossible to pick a favourite, the whole album is one that you can play over and over. Unfortunately, due to licensing difficulties, Putumayo were unable to include a track by Bob Marley, but there are enough great artists on here to more than make up for that. Culture's "Why am I a Rastaman", Black Uhuru's "Sponji reggae" and Jimmy Cliff's "Give the people what they want", to name but three. If you are anything of a reggae fan, then this album belongs in your collection. 20 page booklet includes photos and information on each artist. Recommended.

I strongly disagree with the reviewer who bought it in Boston and hates it because all they like is Bob Marley. I love Bob Marley, but his music is not all there is to World Beat and it's not all there is to Jamaican Music. I have over 12 Putamayo CDs and love them - this one included - and many different Reggae CDs - Marley included. One of the cool things about the Putamayo CDs is that they provide exposure to a wide variety of artists and musical styles that the listener may not otherwise have experienced. If you have an open mind and want to experience different styles of world beat music, buy this and other Putamayo CDs and broaden your horizons!

If u can't get into Agustus Pablo, Grammy award winner Black Uhuru(the best selling reggae group ever!) Culture, Jimmy Cliff, Israel Vibrations, all legends of the genre, you have no business calling yourself a reggae fan, and furthermore should't even bother listening. This cd has played a major part in my musical world. I am now a Reggae promoter, I spend alot of my time going to shows and listening to all kinds of reggae, and I can honestly say that the songs on this disc all had a part in my career choice! If you love reggae, if you are curious about reggae, if you like island rythyms, or latin flavor, or good music in general, buy this CD! Some idiot payed to much in Boston, but you can get it here on Amazon for a great price, and trust me it's worth it!

Putumayo has a knack for capturing wide ranges of styles within a particular genre on their compilation discs. "Latino! Latino!" and "Cuba" come to mind. "Jamaica" is no exception. A wonderful mix of reggae that will have you shuffling your feet or thumping the steering wheel as you "visit" the island. I always play this album in RANDOM mode. Keeps everything fresh.
