Heavy beats, afrocentric tonal axcursions and crazy dub antics from the Adrian Sherwood produced Bonjo I crew! This go round the group includes Eskimo, Style Scott, Prisoner, Doctor Pablo, Crociodile, and Lizard, and the grooves are as mad as their other early On-U sets, with 9 tracks included ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Unity Is Power ... LP Elevation/Pressure Sounds (UK), 1979. New Copy (reissue)...
One of the best records ever by Joe Higgs! Higgs is one of classic reggae's best songwriters and one of it's most distinctive voices – having written for, performed with or simply influenced some of the biggest names in the game – but his own great records didn't really crossover to ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A lost gem, finally reissued! Hudson's voice as a producer remains one of the most unique and idiosyncratic of his era, and this first LP issued under his own name stands as a shining document of his genius. Cut very near the time of his classic dub side Pick A Dub, this album shares the haunting ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A rare side from Keith Hudson, teaming up with Bullwackie Barnes for a mighty set – two of our favorite producers in one place – and one that's been painfully hard to come by for some time. Issued originally on the Joint International imprint in the early 80s, we can't remember the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Bob Marley —
Legend ... LP Island, 1970s. Very Good Gatefold ...
One of the best-selling albums ever from Bob Marley – a classic collection of work from his all-too-short career – and one that's gone onto become as famous as Marley's individual records themselves! The collection really allows all the classics to resonate strongly, in a track order ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Marley & the Wailer's debut on Island, and though there is a bit too much of Blackwell's production afoot here, it's still a remarkable set. Not quite as slick as some of the later Island LPs, and worth it since it still features the original lineup with Peter Tosh & Bunny Wailer . ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Benchmark Scientist dub – great stuff recorded and mixed at King Tubby's near the end of the 70s – and it's some of tightest, heaviest dubs of the period! Scientist works over some of the heftiest Aggrovator sides on this legendary set – one of favorite dub records, period! One ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Rare tracks and a fair bit of unreleased dub plates too – a deep dig into the genius of Yabby You during the 70s! There's a dark, brooding intensity to these tracks right from the start – from the deep, bassy bottoms of the dubs – to the prophetic lyrics of the tunes, which often ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
