A landmark in Jamaican soul and one of the albums that helped break reggae onto the world stage. A nice, nice selection of early '70's reggae, mostly performed by Jimmy Cliff, but with a few equally wonderful numbers by the Maytals & Desmond Dekker, too. Includes classics like the Maytals' ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
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
One of our favorite Wailers LPs – as solid a statement as Marley had made, and to our ears, the finest moment of his later career. The album features classics like "Natural Mystic", "Three Little Birds", "One Love/People Get Ready" and the excellent, driving ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Uprising ... LP Island, 1980. Very Good ...

Another volume of this "loss leader" type collection, bringing together some of the more memorable tunes from the Island catalog of the 70s : "This Is Reggae Music" by Zap Pow, "I Shot The Sheriff" & "Concrete Jungle" by the Wailers, "The World Is ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
