Some of my favorite roots-era reggae artists are:
Toots & The Maytals
Althea & Donna (esp Uptown Top Ranking)
Junior Murvin (esp Police & Thieves)
Trojan Records puts out some awesome, super cheap 3-cd box sets that have some really great, obscure tunes.
I'll take a screen shot of what I have in my iTunes and I'll post it here for you when I get back from class.
I'm interested too!!

There's a great (IMHO) steel drum band out of Seattle called The Toucans - you can google it but their music is available on Amazon. I usually play it when I'm stressed at work or need a vacation moment
How about some Jimmy Buffet? His album "License to Chill" may not be island music, but it has some great cuts on it, especially "Boats to Build", with Alan Jackson, and "Sea of Heartbreak" with George Strait. If you're a Jimmy Buffet fan, you're sure to like this album. Also, Kenny Chesney has a few albums that will put you in the mood for a cruise, especially "Lucky Old Sun".

of course marley and the others are must haves, but for some non-rasta stuff we like Buffet and Barefoot Man. Barefoot Man does a permanent stint on Cayman island at one of the resorts, we found him in the Abacos on Guana Cay...plays at Nippers every spring! If you go to the Nippers website I think you can hear a sample of his music.
