Black Uhuru —
Anthem ... LP Mango, 1982. Very Good ...
Just Sold Out!
The cream of the crop of early 80s reggae. Fusing militant, political lyrics with the excellent harmony vocal arrangements of Puma Jones, Duckie Simpson and Michael Rose and the unrelenting electrified rhythms of Sly & Robbie, Black Uhuru represented the zenith of the modern Roots era. This ... (Reggae) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
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
Burning Spear —
Marcus Garvey ... LP Mango/Island, 1975. New Copy (reissue)...
Around September 23, 2014
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

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
Legendary Toots & The Maytals singer Toots Hibbert meets legendary Memphis producer Jim Dickinson – and the best session players that city has to offer!

LKJ In Dub ... CD Mango, 1980. Used ...
Temporarily Out Of Stock
A modern dub classic! Dennis Bovell had really hit his stride with many of these rhythms laid down for the great dub poet Linton Kwesi Johnson's Forces of Victory & Bass Culture LPs, and they're given just the right touch of tasty dub effects here. Nice horn lines floating over thunderous ... (Reggae) read moreCD
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 moreCD
Wailing Souls —
Wild Suspense ... CD Mango/Island Jamaica (UK), 1979. Used ...
Temporarily Out Of Stock
Around the Dusty Groove office, the Wailing Souls have always been a stand out roots group, though their name seems to have stopped just short of household status – except among the diehard reggae fans. This album stands as a high water mark in their career, their second self produced full ... (Reggae) read moreCD
(Out of print. Note – artwork is wrinkled from some light water damage.)
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
A decent collection of some of the bigger tunes from the Island catalog of the 70s – including "Police & Thieves" by Junior Murvin, "Roast Fish & Cornbread" by Lee Perry, "War Ina Babylon" by Max Romeo, "Natty Takeover" by Justin Hines, "Col ... (Reggae) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
