I hadn't forgotten, Ekki Smile - the data was safely stored on my work PC (at the place I'm at right now) and backed up onto a memory stick.

Unfortunately, the memory stick was also safe - locked in a desk in a different office - I can't get to it till this afternoon Confused

Lame excuse over Shocked

I like the idea of advertising stragglers, though there are many albums that have polled only a couple of points - and of course many worthy albums I'm sure, that have polled no votes at all, not a sausage, bugger all...yet Wink

After the initial flurry of interest, I haven't exactly had a welter of responses, send your lists in NOW!

In the meantime, here's the current Top 10 single artist album favourites - in alphabetical order, not vote order:

Smile Abyssinians - Forward On To Zion
Smile Abyssinians - Satta Massa Gana
Smile Bob Andy - Songbook
Smile Horace Andy - Skylarking
Smile Burning Spear - Marcus Garvey
Smile Burning Spear - Studio One Presents
Smile Congos - Heart Of The Congos
Smile Augustus Pablo - King Tubby meets Rockers Uptown
Smile Skatalites - Foundation Ska
Smile Wailing Souls - Wailing Souls

Some of the expected frontrunners (no doubt) featuring Wink

I've had votes for 126 different albums here, the bottom 10 stragglers are:

Smile Ethiopians - Reggae Power
Smile Gregory Isaacs - Mr Isaacs
Smile Jacob Miller - Who Sah Jah No Dread
Smile Sugar Minott - Ghetto-Ology
Smile Jackie Mittoo - Keyboard King At Studio One
Smile Hugh Mundell - Time and Place
Smile Lee Perry & the Upsetters 14 Dub Blackboard Jungle
Smile Roy Shirley - Music is the Key: The Anthology 1967 to 1975
Smile Slim Smith - Keep That Lovelight Shining
Smile U Roy - Version Galore

IMO, a surprising omission from this list so far is Barrington Levy's "Here I Come" - not been mentioned by anyone - though it may make my final 10 (it's on my shortlist Wink )

As far as various artist albums go, this is the Top 10 (in alphabetical order again):

Smile Arkology 1976-1979
Smile Black Slavery Days
Smile Children of Jah
Smile Duke Reid's Treasure Chest
Smile Harder They Come (OST)
Smile Jesus Dread - Yabby U Productions
Smile Rebel Music - An Anthology Of Reggae Music
Smile Tougher Than Tough: The Story of Jamaican Music
Smile Tighten Up Vol. 2
Smile We Are Getting Bad: The Sound of Phase One 1978-79

...and the current stragglers out of the 121 different albums are:

Smile Crab's Biggest Hits
Smile Divine Madness: Definitely
Smile Guns Of Navarone
Smile Hudson Affair
Smile Jack Ruby Presents Black Foundation
Smile Keep The Pressure Down
Smile Mento Madness: Motta's Jamaican Music 1951-56
Smile Reggae Time
Smile Ska Down Jamaica Way Vol. 3
Smile You Left Me Standing

Surprising omissions? There must be some, though I can't think of any obvious ones just yet Confused

The irretrievably dire (IMVHO) Trojan Ska Revival Box Set has NOT featured Rolling Eyes Confused Confused Shocked ...though that's no surprise Smile

Don't you fear this preview might spoil the final results? I mean, if I had not voted yet, I might try to pull up some albums I love in the bottom 10 or strengthen the position of some others in the top 10...

That's always a risk al, but if we are true to ourselves then this information won't really matter, though it may remind some of albums that should be re-appraised.

I also did this as a reminder and to get people voting Wink

BTW - I am advised by two people that the the Abyssinians' "Forward On To Zion" and "Satta Massa Ganna" albums are one and the same - the latter being a later release, I'm told - I have the former (on Klik) but didn't know about the later release Smile

Where's this at? It is a good idea, hope it has not been dropped because of lack of votes...

Work has got in the way so I haven't done it yet - watch this space in the next couple of days Wink

Thanks, Matt - your efforts and interest are appreciated - I'll add these in with the others Wink

The main reasons I haven't posted an update are that I can't find a slick way to list the front runners and I'v ebeen away for a few days too Confused

I'll try and do this over this week-end...

Thanks Matt Smile

Well here's a long-overdue update...

I've had responses from only 25 so far - not enough to be statistically useful, IMO Confused

So I'll be pleased to receive more selections (Note that "Yabby U - Jesus Dread" and "Many Moods Of The Upsetters" should be incuded - if chosen - in the various artists section Wink)

12 His_Imperial_Measurements
13 prajna
14 Ringo
15 mcgr
16 ephteeay (single-artist only)
17 arty
18 LORD
19 Alan (single-artist only)
20 reggaedelic
21 Intensified
22 NickB
23 Bosssounds
24 RasRyan
25 Matt

...notice I haven't contributed yet Confused

Abyssinians - Forward On To Zion (aka Satta Massa Ganna)
Augustus Pablo - King Tubby meets Rockers Uptown
Bob Andy - Songbook
Burning Spear - Marcus Garvey

...I'm pleased to announce that Ekki has, at long last, posted me his lists today Smile Wink

I've also had a few more responses since the last update, so I'm hopeful of getting a decent set...
