CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Jamaican Recordings (UK), Late 70s. New Copy
A great collection of underground dub tracks from late 70s Jamaica – the kind of limited-run dubplates that would circulate between some of the bigger sound systems on the scene, and offer up radically trippy versions of better-known tunes! The set is heavy on echo and slow-stepping rhythms ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rock-Steady-'67
Bra, 1967. Near Mint-
Nice bit of rocksteady material by Byron Lee & The Dragonaires, touted on the cover as "Carribean's Number One Band". The cover goes onto say "It's Oily! Oily! And Sweet!" – and it's right! This stuff has a nice raw feel, with a stone cold 60s reggae groove, and a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jamaican Recordings (UK), Late 70s. New Copy

Natty Dread
Island, 1974. Very Good-
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, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Epic/Ice, 1983. Near Mint-
An unlikely contender to the throne of king of electro, this early 80s effort from Eddie Grant helps to prop him up there quite nicely. Heavy synth driven grooves bubble along nicely with that crisp Linn Drum sound, and though this album benefited from some wider pop appeal, there's more than a ... LP, Vinyl record album

VP, 1978. New Copy (reissue)
Mostly instrumental, but not quite dub, though some cuts do have Perry's vocals on top.

Robin Hood
Jah Life/Greensleeves, 1979. New Copy (reissue)
We have to admit, even if this record wasn't a fierce salvo loaded down with tough dancehall tracks, we'd still love it for the great photos of Levy in a red, green and gold Robin hood getup on the cover!
