King Sunny Ade's first major label LP, that helped him bring his juju music to the world. The blueprint of juju's laid down hear, with loads of intertwining guitar lines and tallking drums chattering away in a driving but never-too-busy fashion underneath. Includes "Sunny Ti De Arya", ...

The last of what we'd considered Black Uhuru's crucial middle period, with the Michael Rose, Puma Jones, Duckie Simpson lineup and some awesome electrified production courtesy Sly & Robbie, at the height of their game. With some heavy rhythms, dub influenced atmospherics and excellent playing ... (Reggae) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

One of our top 10 dub albums of all time! This album bridges the gap between the the low-fi, down and dirty excursions of the 70's dub era, and the later high tech dub revolution brought on by On-U, Mad Professor and Jah Shaka. The rhythms here are all first rate, drawn mostly from their Chill Out ... (Reggae) read moreCD

One of our favorite Black Uhuru albums, when they'd fully matured as a group under the production of Sly & Robbie, with a tight modern reggae sound that few other groups could match from that era. Heavy, heavy grooves saddled with the trios potent lyrics and harmony vocals, including the ... (Reggae) read moreCD
A great one from Black Uhuru! Sinsemilla had a lot to live up to as the follow up to the burning Showcase, but the harmony trio of Michael Rose, Puma Jones and Duckie Simpson rise to the occasion under the heavy guidance of Sly & Robbie. While it didn't produce as many singular hits as some ... (Reggae) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An absolute classic! If you can own only one reggae LP, this one's in the front running – it's as if the words crucial and conscious were created to define the sound Winston Rodney, Burning Spear & the Black Disciples capture on this landmark roots LP. Though this is the Island version ... (Reggae) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

One of the early 90s taxi productions that showed Sly & Robbie could still top the charts, with the huge hit "Murder She Wrote", plu s"Bam Bam", "Nuh Betta Nuh Deh", "I Wanna Be Your Man", "One Nation Under A Groove" and 8 more. . . ... (Reggae) CD
A party time indeed! This is the follow up to Night Food, and a set that nearly equals its predecessot, as a great example of what Leroy Sibbles and the Heptones were capable of when teaming up with Lee Perry! Laid down at the legendary Black Ark, this set's one of the band's strongest LPs, with ... (Reggae) read moreCD

Song ... LP Mango, 1980. Very Good+ ....
A wonderful roots record from Pablo Moses, who came on the scene a little too late for his own good, as he came up during an era when the focus was beginning to shift away from roots and more towards the dancehall. This sophomore LP finds his bright vocal style still sounding solid over excellent ... (Reggae) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

The all time classic from Junior Murvin – as essential as any late 70s reggae! Production-wise, Police And Thieves is among Scratch's finest moments, from the most monumental period in Perry's career, during the height of the Black Ark. The title track needs no introduction from us, and ... (Reggae) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A later effort from perhaps the least prolific of the solo Wailers. Bunny does nice later interpretations of Wailers classics, with a generous helping hand from Sly & Robbie, and adds a nice rendition of Curtis Mayfield's "Keep On Moving" to the set. A favorite album of ours from ... (Reggae) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the weird Meters-related New Orleans parade bands from the 70s – similar to the group The Wild Magnolias, but with a sound that's more in a New Orleans mode than a 70s funk one. The Meters play on the record, and the group sings most of the vocals as well – and production is by ... (Soul) read moreCD
