Primarily interested in the 70's roots period, but "bubbling under" is early dancehall, digital, modern roots, early reggae, rocksteady etc. etc. etc. :)

Way too difficult for me to answer this, so in the end I had to opt for 'any style'. My real favourites span more than one of these categories, but don't fit easily in any one and I can't choose between them. I lean towards rock steady and roots, but with far less emphasis on early reggae or dub... :?

Voting with my pocket, I'd have to go for modern roots (singer or deejay stylee), but that's at least as much a reflection of what I play out as of what I listen to at home. And voting with my feet doesn't help, coz I'll dance to just about anything with a beat...

It would probably be easier for me to answer a poll asking what my least favourite style of non-reggae music is. How much time have you got?

Easy one for me this, even though I love all styles it's ska and rocksteady that I love the most.
