I'm no expert either, but these are the best of the tracks I've got:

1. Morning Ah Come [Xterminator]
2. I'm Not a King [i'm not a king riddim, Brickwall / Digital B]
3. Rough Inna Town (with Luciano) [Xterminator]
4. Pirates' Anthem (with Home T and Shabba Ranks) [champion lover riddim, Music Works]
5. Flag Flown High (with Shabba Ranks) [kette drum riddim, Digital B]
6. Too Young (with Buju Banton) [Xterminator]
7. Wicked Man [satta riddim, Brickwall / Digital B]
8. Can Not Be Real [queen majesty riddim, Digital B]

And if you don't already have them, I'd recommend the albums 'Israel's King' on Xterminator and the indespensible 'Flag Flown High: The Best of Bobby Digital's Roots Productions' on Pressure Sounds.

My favourite is "Rocking Dolly"

...I used to have a tape of the "Ryker's Island" album which I didn't like at first, but it grew on me (the music, not the tape :) :? )
If it don't turn you on, you oughtta leave it alone!!

Feel The Power/ Xterminator

Thought Sizzla's & InI Kamozes versions were better until I heard Cocoa singing it acapella on that bbc documentary. Killer tune

You beat me to it Marc!

I second & heartily endorse those recommendations on the Israel's King, Feel the Power, and Riker's Island albums. The Best of on Xterminator is also a nice set with some well and lesser known gems. Unforgettable is a good album as well, the title song is a beautiful and heartfelt tribute to the late Dennis Brown.
