sometimes, a good reggae cover can rescue a tired song, and similarly, many reggae originals have been covered by pop-reggae artists.

this is a collection of originals, covers and versions.

    Loved yer covers list, was wondering if you knew where I could find an old roots recording of Tainted Love. I heard it a party and would love to find out who it was and where I might find it.

    Cheers
