Didn't think of the likes of Sizzla, but I guess he's a true legend and father now and Ijahman is a good shout too.

I always thought a sons of reggae would be good featuring younger artists covering UB tunes such as Sizzla, Luciano etc

Loved Eddy Grant's earlier music, Jamaican Child was a particular favourite and Living On The Frontline was epic. Couldn't listen to him any longer after Romancing The Stone though.. that was even worse than Electric Avenue

Definitely, I could hear Horace Andy singing many UB tunes especially as I think he has a similar pitch of voice to Ali. My suggestion would be Lost and Found but lots would work.

Alpha Blondy did a wonderful version of Young Guns, would love to hear him do a full version of a UB40 track
