Jemere Morgan's album, Transition, is one of two in the Billboard Reggae Chart's top five for the week of February 18 to move upward. It has inched up a place from last week to be at number four, two places below its peak number two slot in its fourth week on the chart. The other top-five mover is Stick Figure's Set in Stone, which has also gained a place from last week to be at number three. It has spent 64 weeks on the Billboard listing.

Just ahead of the Grammys, for which they are nominated in the reggae category, Raging Fyah has popped up on the listing again, claiming the number 10 slot. In its eight weeks on the chart, Everlasting has so far peaked at number two.

The number one spot continues to be held by London McNamara's A Dollar Short & a Minute Late, and the second spot, Falling Into Place (Rebelution), also remains unchanged. The loser in the top five's movement is J Boog's Wash House Ting, which has fallen two places from last week to be at number five.

 

GREATEST GAINER

 

Bob Marley and the Wailers' The Legend Live: Santa Barbara - Country Bowl, November 25th, 1979, is tabbed the week's greatest gainer at number six, after nine weeks on the chart. It is a good week for those who have been in the business of Jamaican popular music for a long time. UB40s Unplugged has re-entered the chart and is at number eight, its highest position in two weeks on the listing.

At number 15 is a new entry of old material in Soul Jazz Records presents: Studio One Rocksteady, Volume 2.
