Peter Hunningale is a gent.

I have to strongly disagree with you about Gregory. When he was at his peak he was the embodiment of reggae. Laid back perfection.

OK, maybe Gregory is just "a little" too laidback for me, after hearing some tunes in a row. Given the huge amount he did, i could at least find 50 which are great but...
Soon Forward is a real gem, for instance. He makes me feel like sleeping after a while, just like Horace "Sleepy" Andy, who neverless recorded absolute beauts!
As the rules seem to be very strict, i'll replace Barrington Levi by Sugar Minott. Gosh, how could i forget Sugar ! :roll:

What about Papa Levi?

He's discussed in the Top 20 DJs thread.

Someone definitely should have gone to Specsavers! Sugar Minott would be in my Top 5 let alone my Top 20!

Ernest Wilson hasn't been mentioned. What a voice.
