Not sure why but the one I go back to time and time again is "Stop throw stones"

I echo the sentiment above about Mash Down Rome but most of the Yabby You stuff is excellent. The Radics/Scientist/Junjo stuff is also top quality and I am most partial to the Just Talking Greensleeves 12".
Copa Come for Techniques and Your Love with Ricky Tuffy in a different style.
Show Some Love for Tuff Scout from a few years back is an incredible tune too.

Gunman, hands down.
But also Your Love, with Ricky Tuffy (both versions) - nice memories when it hit hard in the dances! Also from same era, another sound system boom tune : Hypocrites w/ Daddy Freddy.
More recently : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hH8PEaDPNZQ
Till the end, his voice remained intact, amazing!
His "Consciousness" LP produced by Yabby You is chock full of wonderful tunes.
One of the few artists who did justice to the Heptones' originals when he covered one (thinking of Fighting to the Top!).
A great but underated giant !

I also love the roots classics including Jah Love, Righteous Are The Conqueror and Praise You Jah Jah:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vLTv19HoGdU

Surprising coming from me but I also like some of his newer stuff like Rainbow Country on Sip A Cup and this one:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IP_upUDT4co

Heard him sing Gunman live in the late 80's. He tore down the place! Never heard a crowd reaction like it before or since and he wasn't even the headline act!

I don't particularly have a favourite tune but I love the entire 'Serious Reasoning' album and have been giving it lots of spins this week. What a vibe there is on that set.
