« My Brother Michael | Main | Cheeky? What's a Cheeky? »


Daddy Bun

Definately anything by the Skatalites and also the Buena Vista Social Club soundtrack (though it's cuban it worked for us in hawaii perfectly)


I see that you took our advice and let Cheeky stay at home. Don't worry. you will have plenty of time to travel with her. Just don't wait too long....

How about some Bruce, and you're missing out on the best band ever, Mana (out of Mexico) Download (of course on Limewire, DC++, or Bittorrent) their MTV unplugged album and enjoy. I've been listening to Melissa Etherdige for 15 years and her greatest hits album is awesome. Or her "Lucky Live" album.

Enjoy Jamaica. I demand lots of nice pics and of course some updates while you're there:-))



Don't forget Peter Tosh. I would also try the Abbyssinians and Culture.


I was going to add Tosh as well. And even though they're mostly white guys from the UK, I love UB40. Is 'Many Rivers to Cross' on the 'Harder They Come' soundtrack? I used to have a live Jimmy Cliff tape (yes, tape) that was amazing.

Where are you going? If you're in Negril, check out Fun Holiday on 7 mile beach. Amazing food. Arctic cold Red Stripe. Live Reggae. Shoes optional.

Enjoy the horticulture.


Criminy--I'm away from reading blogs for 6 days and look at all this stuff that happens. First off, congratulations on the vacation.

Secondly, I wish your brother well while he is away.

Think I will call my husband to pick up a sixer of Red Stripe and imagine that I am somewhere tropcial.

Mr. Big Dubya

How 'bout some Toots and the Maytals? Funky Kingston, Irie Irie, 54-46, Pressure Drop. Or some Junior Murvin with Police and Thieves.


You gotta throw some Sublime in there.. Maybe a little Summertime or At the Pawn Shop.

Phat Daddy

Where's the dancehall tunes? You need some Shabba Ranks, Beenie Man, Shinehead...etc.

Gwan an ride de riddim, Croutonboyee! Big up ya chest! Boh!


Trip won't work without Rusted Root and Poi Dog Pondering. Could also add in some Eddie from Ohio, Sonia Dada, Simply Red just for shits and giggles. Ohhhh, have sooo much fun!!!


I have to agree with Sublime, but don't forget "Coconut" by Harry Nilsson and of course Harry Belefonte, lest ye forget. If you're feeling daring you could always put some Ramstein in the mix.


Aw, you're already gone. I would have suggested The Spirit of Music by
Ziggy Marley and maybe some Sublime.

Love your ideas for criminals!


Lucky Dube, Gregory Isaacs, Bad Brains (for when you're tired of the mellow), Burning Spear, and Ozomatli.
