A relatively new tune that I find really uplifting is Sandeeno 'Love Jah and Live' Tuff Scout 7 inch.. Positive message and a great riddim.

This is a very good topic.
It seems we all have different emotions as regarding music, i listened to previews of the tracks mentioned & i must say
not feeling it , no emotions kindled for me in the least.

Now that ole Everton Blender song that RG mentioned is a different matter, always makes me feel good.
That's the missing spark in most recent reggae, for me it is soulless.

I listen to dance, r & b . pop, reggae all those greats of old are pure soulful.
old studio 1 records are uplifting.
In my opinion most music is cold & emotion less now, when that changes reggae will be back on top.
I read somewhere someone said 10% of music is good, probably agree with that.
Enough rambling from me, play some of that 'lift Up your Head" song, still works for me after all those years.

Ah ah, Mr Ranking Specs, that's exactly the same one which came to my mind first:
Everton Blender - Lift Up Your Head.
Dawna Lee - Don't Give Up is another one.
Heptones - Fight It to the Top. Uplifting classic.

Nice topic!

For me, 'The Terrors - Assemble Not Thyself' is the absolute epitome of sublime, uplifting roots music:
