Linval Thompson "Ride On Dreadlocks" 1975-77 on the Blood and Fire Label
I heard this playing in Trade Roots and bought it on the spot. It easily eclipses some of the other Linval compilations I have even though it only has 11 tracks. If you have a decent system be sure to turn up the bass when you play these and you'll definetly hear how good these songs really are and how they're meant to be heard.
Each of the tracks are "extended versions" which means the tune usually plays to about 3 minutes and then the dub kicks in seamlesslly.
