Default Good Island Music Referral, pls

Hi there. Just back from the Glory yesterday (Sun, Mar 25).

Now going through post-cruise vacation blues.

Anyone have any suggestions on an Islands Music-like CD/album.

Was looking on iTunes but didn't see much too offer.

Not looking for a steel drum compilation.

I could be corny...but looking for something that would be akin to the band that plays on the Lido during the afternoon.

I may not be able to pound margaritas while back in the office, but would at least like to think about it with the right music playing in the background.

Thanks!

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.

Some of my favorite roots-era reggae artists are:
The Wailers
Peter Tosh
Toots & The Maytals
Burning Spear
Althea & Donna (esp Uptown Top Ranking)
Junior Murvin (esp Police & Thieves)
Jacob Miller
John Holt

Trojan Records puts out some awesome, super cheap 3-cd box sets that have some really great, obscure tunes.

If you're looking for more contemporary stuff, you can't go wrong with any of the Strictly the Best compilations. They are a pretty good place to sample some of the newer stuff coming out.

also...obviously you should buy Bob Marley's Legend ASAP. The songs have been played to death but it's the best introduction to reggae's most important artist.

Default Steel Drum Band

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

Dont forget Jimmy Cliff! Also, if you have satelitte radio, radio margaritaville plays some great island stuff. Plus, we love anything by Zac Brown Band as inspiration for all future trips!

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".

It's hard to find a lot of these songs on CDs/Albums so I'd suggest looking them up on youtube and then converting them to a mp3 file on zamzar.com (takes about 5 seconds tops)

Well, Australia's given us some pretty nifty didgeridoo music...whut? Wrong island? No Yothu Yindi?

Well, then...try some Don Carlos reggae. His "Seven Days a Week" is a personal favorite...

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.
