I feel this may have been done but I couldn't find anything. Top 5 who were active in the 60s even if they were more popular or better in another decade.

1.  The Kinks

2. Dusty Springfield

3. Jackie Wilson

4. The Byrds

5. The Pretty Things

I love a lot of early ska but I don't think many of those lads had as depth of material as the Motown/Stax lot. 
Get some Desmond Dekker greatest hits on the go. He’s got a great back catalogue.

I would pick The Skatalites over Desmond any day of the week and probably Toots and the Maytals but I think they were hitting their peak in the 70s. A lot of my favourite ska songs are by chancers who seem to have recorded one single on Blue Beat then disappeared from existence:
