    Barry Brown's "Please Officer" with the version. The version definitely deviates from the standard aesthetic of a version, with a focus on drum breaks rather than heavy bass and echo.

    Alexander Henry's Studio One track, "Please Be True" part of a mix and then two other mixes of covers, versions, or tracks on the same rhythm:

    And for folks who want a dancehall version, Sanchez with Bounty Killer is really good:

    I have not seen him perform live. He was part of a reggae festival that happened in Chicago this summer but I didn't go since it was brutally hot at that time and an outdoor festival wasn't going to be good.

    A three-part video (which I think are extras to a DVD) about sound systems in England. Some great stories in this:

    ok, this is a long shot and a bizarre one at that but there seems to be a good deal of knowledge about reggae on here:

    Back in the early eighties I was at a residential college and one of the helpers was really into reggae dub. He had a 12" vinyl disc on which there were some lyrics which went something like "sex shop is not for the 'handicapped".

    Well, I've tried finding out who it was by, but with no luck. If anyone here has any clue please let me know!

    Thanks.

    Just to annoy the purists, this is one of my favourites:
    UB40 - B-Line In Dub
    Although in my defence, I didn't like anything else they did. :-)

    @RL: I'll ask about those lyrics on a reggae forum, but those are odd lyrics for a true reggae act. I'd assume you heard something by a punk/post-punk group that was using reggae influences (something like Subhumans spin-off Culture Shock).

    Here's a short clip featuring Jack Ruby's soundsystem. Very different vibe than the English soundsystem clips I posted above: slower tunes and a different type of dancing + different type of social space.

    Danielmak, thanks. It may have been on the Greensleeves label. I don't think I was imagining those lyrics!

    @RL: I accidentally hit "save" instead of send on my original post to the other forum so your reply reminded me to go back and check. I posted yesterday and today there was a response. Here you go:

    The 1st 2 UB40 albums are both great. No matter how many Century radio playings of Red, Red Wine you have to suffer, that will remain true.

    I've just booked tickets to see Dennis Bovell doing a multi-media history (talk, film and live performance) of British reggae at Gateshead Sage. Dec 5th

    I think the first 2-3 UB40 records were good. Maybe the last one I enjoyed was UB44. I can't remember where that fell in their catalogue.

    Please report back about the Dennis Bovell session. I'll be curious to hear about it. Pressure Sounds has been reissuing a lot of his stuff, although I haven't picked up any of the CDs yet. They're on a very long "to buy" list.

    Not quite reggae but I've been listening to a Trojan reissue of The Paragons' On The Beach With... album over the last week. It clocks in with a positively Floyd-esque 43 bonus tracks in addition to the original release's streamlined 10. Most of it is lovely, confirming rocksteady's position as ska's underrated younger sibling.
