Yu Safe ... LP Stage (Jamaica), 1985. Very Good ...
Seminal mid 70s work from Leroy Sibbles, the lead singer of the Heptones, perhaps more well known the house bass player at Studio One, the man behind many now classic rhythms! This mid 70s set was cut at Harry J's, and is a bit more produced than some of their earlier sides, but no less great ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Side 2 has marks that click a bit on a few tracks. Cover has some wear, a bit of sticker residue, and a few small peeled marks along the bottom.)
Lee, ever the entrepreneur, looks to capitalize on the huge stateside disco trend with this album, though there's little disco here, and mostly workman like reggae, that's not particularly outstanding. The sole disco effort is a take on "The Hustle", and the rest of set includes "Roc ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Essential – probably Marley's most well known work. This is his breakthrough 3rd album, just after Bunny Wailer and Peter Tosh left the group, replaced by the female harmony group the I-Threes.

It's the late 80s and the Rhythm Twins are working here with Fatis Burrell, peddling grooves very much in the Taxi Gang vein, with Sly contributing some snapping beats on his syn drums that echoed the digital revolution taking place in the dancehall. 8 fat tracks in all, including "All ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
It may be pop reggae or whatever you want to call it – but the strength of the group's version of "Now That We Found Love" really pushed them over the top! That track's the real winner here – a smooth modern soul number with just a slight hint of Kingston, grooving away in a ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Another mighty batch of dubness from Pressure Sounds! Oiginally issued as 20 Golden Hits, this fat batch of dubs takes some of Delroy Wilson's smoothest easy rocking numbers produced by Striker Lee, and hands them over to Prince Jammy at Tubby's for a clean spare dub reading, aimed straight for ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
