But glad you've come on to Dadawah and Abyssinians. Dadawah is definitely a different format that you have to sink into, but it's rewarding once you do. And I love the Abyssinians' singing; they're really catchy.
I'm on board with your Big Youth opinion. I checked them out way back when (before I knew all that much about reggae) just because of Sonic Youth partly naming themselves after him.
