The Congos' seminal Heart Of The Congos and Bounty Hunter by Ninjaman, have been named in New York Magazine's 60 Great Albums You Probably Haven't Heard.
They made a list that includes highly-rated recordings by crooner Mel Torme, country great Lefty Frizzell and Afro-beat performer King Sunny Ade.

The Congos comprising Cedric Myton and Roy Johnson.

The list will be published in the magazine's November 18 issue.
In its mini review on Heart Of The Congos, the publication stated: "The greatest roots reggae album of all time? Or the greatest album of all time, period?"
Featuring the hit song Fisherman, the 10-track set was produced by Lee 'Scratch' Perry and released by Island Records in 1977. It was an instant hit in the United Kingdom and Europe and ensured The Congos a lasting fan base on that continent and in South American countries like Brazil.
Heart Of The Congos enjoyed a revival in the 1990s when it was re-issued by British independent record company Blood and Fire. The re-packaged set returned strong figures.
Bounty Hunter is not as acclaimed, but the 1991 VP Records album presents the controversial toaster at the peak of his form. Its 10 songs include the dancehall favourite Things A Gwaan, as well as Cowboy Town.
"There's lots of sex and, especially, violence on Ninjaman's Bounty Hunter, an album sometimes credited with bringing gangsta-rap gunplay to the Jamaican dance hall. But there's wit, too, and the pure musicianship of Ninjaman, whose singsong style is one the genre's most compelling," read the New York Magazine review.
Other albums that made the cut are Woman to Woman, the impressive 1975 debut by soul singer Shirley Brown. This set is a favourite among Jamaicans.
Fishbone, the black funk-rock band is also on the list with Truth And Soul which was released in 1988. So too Senegalese singer Youssou N'Dour's 1990 production, Set.
