Pressure Drop (UK), 1965/1966/1968/1969/1970. New Copy 5 CDs ... $32.99
A sweet package of vintage ska from one of the originators – a set that includes five albums from Laurel Aitken, each in their original sleeves, packaged in one nicely-priced slipcover collection! The music includes rare albums from the Rio and Pama labels – most originally issued in the late 60s, and some compiled in later years as rarities collections. Albums include Ska With Laurel, Laurel Aitken Says Fire, Scandal In A Brixton Market, The High Priest Of Reggae, and Skinhead Train – the last of which is a collection of 60s singles and rarities.

New Calvin Bubbles CameronWareika Hill Sounds – Coconut Head Version/Joseph C/Tears In Exile/They Say ... 12-inch
Honest Jons (UK), 2006. Near Mint- (pic cover)... $7.99
Another dynamite single in the Wareika Hill Sounds series from Honest Jon's! Like the last single from trombonist Calvin Bubbles Cameron, this batch if numbers is very much in the vein of the fantastic Light Of Saba set, or some of the Count Ossie & The Mystic Revelation Of Rastafari material. As you might hope, the tracks chug along on massive basslines over rootsy Nyabinghi drumming, with deep horn melodies over top. 3 great instrumental tracks, "Coconut Head Version", "Joseph C" and "Tears In Exile" plus the vocal cut "They Say". 12-inch, Vinyl record

Burning SpearMan In The Hills/Dry & Heavy ... CD
Island (Japan), 1976/1977. New Copy ... Around December 17, 2014
Nice 2-fer that collects 2 great Burning Spear sides, cut as he began his career away from Studio One. The first album of the set is the follow up to the crucial Marcus Garvey set, and the second collaboration between Burning Spear and producer Jack Ruby. While the earlier Studio One sides are truly great, the work of the group (still a harmony vocal trio) at this point took the next step to classic status. Essential stuff, including the mighty title track, plus "No More War", "People Get Ready", "Groovy" & "Black Soul". Dry & Heavy was the first full-length self-produced LP from Winston Rodney, and finds him returning to the solo vocal format, unlike the previous harmony trio setting he'd been working in around the time of the recording. Continuing with the same powerful roots message he laid down on his classic preceding LPs (Marcus Garvey, Social Living & Man In the Hills), and backed up by some mighty rhythms, this is some serious stuff. "Throw Down Your Arms" was the most standout track, but we like "Any River", "Black Disciples" & "It's a Long Way Around" just fine, too. CD

Horace AndyGet Wise ... CD
Pressure Sounds (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
Prime 70s work from Horace Andy – recorded in this laidback, soul-drenched style that almost recalls the Kingston sound of a few years before! The setting is very earthy and up-close – a perfect placement for Andy's really unique vocals, which almost approximate some of the more interesting male soul vocalists of the east coast scene of the time – particularly those at the higher end of the spectrum. Horace lilts up and down beautifully – over grooves recorded at Channel One, Black Ark, Dynamic Sound, and Randys – on titles that include "Roots Of All Evil", "Sexy Jean", "Let Your Teardrops Fall", "Get Wise", "Today Youth", "Feel Good", "Eighty Percent Badness", and "I Don't Want To Be Outside".

AswadHulet (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Island (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... Around December 17, 2014
The second LP from British roots act Aswad, with the same sort of approach as their nice debut – a solid sophomore effort keeping the roots tradition alive at the twilight of the era! The group underwent a minor lineup change from their first LP to this one, but at this point they're still hewing more towards a raw, heavy approach than some of their later, more commercial efforts. Nice! 8 tracks in all: "Behold", "Sons Of Criminals", "Judgement Day", "Not Guilty", "Can't Walk The Streets", "Corruption", "Playing games" and "Hulet". CD

AswadShowcase (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Island (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... Around December 17, 2014
A great compilation from Aswad – issued the same year as their mighty, mighty New Chapter set! Showcase collects Aswad's early singles and documents their formative years very nicely. The sound of these tracks has all the militancy that would fall away in their later pop dancehall years – very much in the vein of their great self-titled debut from the mid 70s. Includes the leftfield disco-not-disco classic 'Warrior Charge", plus "Back to Africa", "Three Babylon", "It's Not Our Wish", "Rainbow Culture" and "Babylon". CD

New VariousStudio One Groups ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sweet Jamaican harmony! Harmony groups form a major piece of the Jamaican music tapestry, and Soul Jazz casts their Studio One-centered spotlight on one of the finest batches of Jamaican ensemble soul around! Covering everything from the rocksteady years on up through the late roots era, the groups showcased here deliver smoothly harmonized numbers under Cosxsone Dodd's deft direction, with only a few hewing towards the more raw sound favored by some of the rootsier ensembles, but all over easy Studio One rocking grooves. 19 dynamite numbers in all, with full annotation as with other releases in this Soul Jazz series, including "Solid Foundation" by the Righteous Flames, "Things A Come Up To Bump" by the Bassies, "You Will Never Know" by the Mad Lads, "What Is It" by the Consumates, "The Struggle" by the Viceroys, "Get In The Groove" by the Heptones, "Pick Up The Pieces" by the Royals, "Jah Jah Go Before Us" by the Gladiators, "Love & Affection" by Bob Marley & The Wailers, "Down Presser International" by the Stingers, "Baby Why" by the Cables, "The Pressure Is On" by the Purpleites, "Cheating & Lying" by the Silvertones and more!

New VariousStudio One Soul 2 ... CD
Soul Jazz/Studio One (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Another essential batch of Studio One Soul, every bit as great as the first! 18 more astoundingly great Jamaican renditions of soul and R&B numbers from the hands of Coxsone Dodd and his extraordinary stable of artists, some deeply soulful, and others with a more rootsy, raw grain to them. All flavors of reggae get represented here, but never departing from the soul theme, with dee jay numbers and dark dubs rubbing up against straight up renditions of numbers that are unafraid to pledge their allegiance to the great originals! Tracks include "Swing Easy" by the Soul Vendors, "Choice Of Colours" by the Heptones, "People Make The World Go Round" by Hortense Ellis, "Choice Of Music (Part 2)" by Jackie Mittoo and the Brentford Disco Set, "Thinking" by Ken Boothe, "Get Out Of My Life Woman" by Tony Gregory, "Fool For Love" by Prince Jazzbo, "Fancy Pants" by Jackie Mittoo, and "Darker Block" by the Dub Specialist.
