On a Billboard Reggae Albums Chart with very few Jamaican artistes, the Kristine Alicia set, RoryStoneLove/Black Dub Music Presents: Songs From Zion, has debuted at number 12 on the listing for the week of March 11, 2017.

Despite a lot of movement on the chart, it is mainly a matter of reshuffling, as there are only two new entries, with two more re-entering the chart. The other new set is Pacific Dub's EP, Take Me Away, which is at number three. The Legend Live: Santa Barbara County Bowl November 25, 1979, is back on the listing at number 11. Also making another chart appearance is, Nothing More to Say, by The Frightnrs at 14.

Last week's number one, Fortunate Youth's self-titled set, is all the way at sixth in its second week on the chart. The top slot goes to Lost in Paradise (Common Kings), up from two last week, and second is Rebelution's Falling Into Place, which was number four on the previous listing.

The number four ranking of, Set in Stone (Stick Figure) is noteworthy not only because it climbed three places from last week, but also because it is now in its 67th week on the chart. Rounding out the top five is another Rebelution set, Live at Red Rocks.

After Fortunate Youth comes Stephen Marley's Revelation Part II: The Fruit of Life. Separating him for his older brother Ziggy's Grammy-winning, self-titled album, is the Get Soca 2017 compilation at eight. The Vitals 808 with EP Vol II, completes the top 10.

Following the Bob Marley and the Wailers live set and the RoryStone Love/Black Dub production, is London McNamara's A Dollaer Short & a Minute Late, at number 13, with Wash House Ting (J Boog) closing off the chart.
