Masterful early 70s reggae from Toots & The Maytals – released first in 1971, and first reissued with this killer tracklist a few years later into the 70s – and flat out classic! The reggae rhythms are steeped in raw soul and R&B for truly distinctive vibe. Breezy Caribbean ... LP, Vinyl record album

Voice Of Jamaica (UK), Late 60s. New Copy
Some of the greatest grooves from late 60s Jamaica – a special set of early rocksteady numbers with an especially soulful vibe! Most numbers here are from groups or single singers getting some great backup from either other vocalists or some heavy echo in the production – which creates ... CD

Super Ape (with bonus poster)
Island/Get On Down, 1976. New Copy (reissue)
The King Kong of dub records, and we're not just saying that because of the freaky deaky cover image of a super ape with a belly full of roast fish, cornbread and makka stepping on a croaking lizard with a tree in one hand and a "tree" in the other! Classic Lee Perry and as essential of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Legalize It
Columbia, 1975. Near Mint-
With a title like this, we can easily guess what Peter Tosh is smoking in his pipe on the cover! But that iconic 70s dorm room image aside, the album's a real classic in mainstream reggae – the first full length set from Peter Tosh after his earlier singles with The Wailers! The record's ...

Rastaman Vibration
Island/Tuff Gong, 1976. Used
A later effort from Robert Nesta Marley, though nowhere near past his prime. By this point in his career a lot of purists were criticizing Marley for crossing over too far, but there is no shortage of either conscious lyric and intent, nor heavy, rootsy rhythms here. The hit was "Roots, Rock ... CD

Arise
Virgin (Austria), 1978. Used
A mighty roots harmony session! The Abyssinians were one of the first groups at the forefront of reggae to move away from the influence of the American soul scene and forge their own style.

Rolling Stones, 1978. Near Mint-
During the mid 70s, a number of major label rock stars had their dalliance with reggae, and after inviting him to tour with them, the Stones decided to start releasing Peter Tosh's LPs.

Song
Mango, 1980. Used
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 ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Natty Dread
Island/Tuff Gong, 1974. Used
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. Not nearly as slick as some of his other Island recordings, this one was still recorded in Jamaica, ... CD

A fine, FINE showcase for singer Barry Brown – working with Prince Jammy at the dawn of the 80s!

Greensleeves (UK), 1985. New Copy (reissue)
Prince Jammy's Computerized Dub – a quintessential set of beeping, bouncing Casio driven jams from the originator of the Jamaican digital tone!

Words Of Wisdom
Joe Gibbs/17 North Parade, 1979. New Copy (reissue)
A late 70s gem from Dennis Brown – and a great mix of material – with some standout Lover's Rock style hams, plus some more strident and spiritually resonant numbers! It's really nice set of numbers with Joe Gibbs, but before taking bigger step in the dancehall era to come in the 80s. ... LP, Vinyl record album

Island, 1970s. New Copy 2LP 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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Pressure Sounds (UK), Late 70s. New Copy
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 ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Basic Replay (Germany), 1974. New Copy (reissue)
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album

Soul Rebels
Trojan, 1970. New Copy (reissue)
A nice collection of early Bob Marley & The Wailers singles – all produced by Lee Perry! The music's a great meeting of two important reggae talents – quite different than both in later years, especially Marley – as the music has a great rawness that would get glossed over in ...

Another mighty batch of dubness from Pressure Sounds!

Pressure Sounds (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP
A stunner!

Unity Is Power
Elevation/Pressure Sounds (UK), 1979. New Copy (reissue)
One of the best records ever by Joe Higgs!

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.

Abraham (Canada), 1976. New Copy (reissue)
Nice mid 70s material from Jacob Miller and the Innercircle Band – in an authentic rootsy style, but Jacob's charismatic vocals and the melodic songcraft give it somewhat bigger feel!
