    Having started getting into Reggae its cool to see some recomendations. I
    picked up a Linval Thompson cd "Rockers From Channel One" today. Spent a
    while at the store listening to cd's and they all sounded good. I didn't
    see any of those compilations, but then the sales guy had me a stack to
    listen to within in a few minutes. They all sounded good so it seems like
    there's a lot of quality (which I expected). I'm feeling Dub and Roots from
    what I heard. All I've known was Bob Marley and Peter Tosh from friends
    (which I always liked). But now looks like I found another type of music to
    get into.
