CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Wackie's (Germany), 1983. New Copy
Very spare, stripped-down dub tracks – heavy on sweet moogy keyboard lines, with some jazzy solos too – all built around the Wicked Ago Feel It album from Sugar Minott! The music is stripped right down to its roots, in a really great way – with less of the overdone, overstated ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pressure Drop (UK), 1965/1966/1968/1969/1970. New Copy 5 CDs
A sweet package of vintage ska from one of the originators – a set that includes five albums from Laurel Aitken, each in their original sleeves, packaged in one nicely-priced slipcover collection! The music includes rare albums from the Rio and Pama labels – most originally issued in ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Jamaican Recordings (UK), Late 70s. New Copy
Very dubby dubs from the legendary Justice Records – tracks that are deeper, darker, and moodier than most mainstream iterations of the format at the time – that best take on music from dirt, served up with more than enough echo to send the instrumentation and vocals into some very ...

Warner, 1989. Very Good+
A sort of an odd hip hop/reggae compilation, with 9 tracks in all: "The Pros" by Queen Latifah & Daddy O (of Stetsa), "What's Gone Wrong" by Pappa Yaie, "The Source (Of Your Divorce)" by Mikey Dread, produced by KRS-1, "Cruise Control" by Satta Blue, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sweet Talking
Heartbeat/Studio One, Late 60s. Used
A motherlode of excellent and rare numbers from one of the cornerstones of the Studio One sound!

Greensleeves (UK), 1980. Used
Solid roots material from Rod Taylor – record at Channel One – originally released in 1980 and effectively putting the cap on the previous decade's stellar run of Channel One perfection! Mixed by Scientist and utilizing a band that features a legendary cast – including Sly Dunbar ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Night Food
Island, 1976. Used
Seminal mid 70s work from Leroy Sibbles, the lead singer of the Heptones, perhaps more well known the house bass player at Studio One, the man behind many now classic rhythms! This mid 70s set was cut at Harry J's, and is a bit more produced than some of their earlier sides, but no less great ... CD

Journey To Addis
Island, 1978. Very Good
It may be pop reggae or whatever you want to call it – but the strength of the group's version of "Now That We Found Love" really pushed them over the top! That track's the real winner here – a smooth modern soul number with just a slight hint of Kingston, grooving away in a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Right Time
Virgin, 1976. Very Good
The Mighty Diamonds debut set, an excellent mix of their sweet harmonies, strident political stance and the then new Rockers sound that was sweeping the Island, recorded at Channel One with a mighty band under the direction of the Hoo Kim brothers. An essentia! Includes "Right Time", ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Third World
Island, 1976. Very Good
The first LP from a group that would go on to become one of the most well known Jamaican artists, largely due to their crisply produced crossover sound that appealed to fans of modern soul. The sound here's a shade rootsier than the album's that would garner them wider appeal, with 8 numbers in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Drastic Season
On-U Sound (UK), 1981. Very Good
Mad dubbed out leftfield grooves from the first generation On-U crew! Bonjo I teams up with Style Scott, Steve Beresford, Crocodile, Kishi, Mus'Come, Martin Frederix and Evar for some percussion driven madness under Adrian Sherwood's production. Overall, the set has less of the spacey dub vibe of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Island, 1970s. Used
While we're not big on career retrospective best of's, especially artists like Marley, whose been collected over & over, this is actually a respectable set, and the vinyl's pretty darn hard to get ahold of anymore. Includes 14 classics, like "Get Up Stand Up", "Exodus", ... CD

Soul Jazz (UK), 1970s/1980s. Used
Soul Jazz keeps the groove up – hitting this 5th volume in their now-legendary series of Dynamite reggae compilations! This volume takes the groove up even farther than previous volumes – exploring a wealth of great dub, Jamaican funk, and even a bit of dancehall in the process. The ... CD

Summer/Light In The Attic, Mid 70s-1980s. Used
Another blistering treasure trove of Canadian reggae! You heard us right, this batch of deep and heavy roots comes all the way from Toronto, and though it may be geographically isolated from the Caribbean, the vibes are deeply rooted foundation rock, not unlike some of the other astoundingly great ... CD

Babylon By Bus
Island/Tuff Gong, 1978. Used
In the mold of so many large labels during the 70s, Island attempted to capitalize on Marley's popularity and the trend of the day by issuing a double live album. If the Wailers weren't such a powerful live act, this would have been totally unjustified trend hopping, but as with the earlier Live ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Survival
Island/Tuff Gong, 1979. Used
Marley's answer record after the assassination attempt. While not as hardcore roots as our favorite LPs, we dig the heavy African influence throughout, plus there's some fairly radical politics in play here too. "Ambush The Night", "Ride Natty Ride", "One Drop" and ... CD

Exodus
Island, 1977. Very Good-
One of our favorite Wailers LPs – as solid a statement as Marley had made, and to our ears, the finest moment of his later career. The album features classics like "Natural Mystic", "Three Little Birds", "One Love/People Get Ready" and the excellent, driving ... LP, Vinyl record album

Harder They Come
Island, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold
A landmark in Jamaican soul and one of the albums that helped break reggae onto the world stage. A nice, nice selection of early '70's reggae, mostly performed by Jimmy Cliff, but with a few equally wonderful numbers by the Maytals & Desmond Dekker, too. Includes classics like the Maytals' ...

You've Got The Power
Columbia, 1982. Very Good+
After leaving Island and moving onto Columbia, Third World got a bit more slick, and continued to work a reggae/pop/soul groove. This record's not a bad one, in fact, it's a pretty respectable crossover effort. Stevie Wonder collaborated with the group on the 2 best tracks, "Try Jah ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pressure Sounds (UK), 1978. Used 2CD
An awesome live set from the late 70s, capturing the Stepping Razor in a blindingly great performance from the legendary One Love Peace Concert.

Soul Jazz/Studio One (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used
An excellent compilation that's very much in the spirit of the 100% Dynamite sets on Soul Jazz! This time, Soul Jazz dig through the vaults of the legendary Studio One catalog – some of the most important reggae and rocksteady ever recorded, virtually all of it produced under the tutelage of ... CD

Chip In
Greensleeves, 1982. Used
Another blast of Junjo Lawes produced dancehall reissued by Greensleeves as they revisit the dawn of the modern reggae era! Jarrett didn't leave behind the massive catalog that so many other singers did, but just about every album you can find with hisname splashed across the top is a gem, and ... CD

Earthquake Dub (with bonus tracks)
Hot Pot (UK), Mid 70s. Used
A stellar and relatively unsung dub set from Ossie Hibbert – and another great release from the Hot Pot label! This long lost LP was cut by Ossie in the mid 70s at Channel One with the Revolutionaries – and stands up against the best Rockers style dubs of the era! Tracks include " ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Blood & Fire (UK), Mid 70s. Used
An augmented reissue of the classic Revelation Time LP, by this roots singer who got his start singing lover's tunes and novelty cuts for the sound systems. By the time he'd begun recording the tracks that were to make up this recording though, he had become fully ensconced in Socialist ideology ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s. New Copy
The first great wave of dancehall from Studio One – which also marks the late wave of Jamaican innovation before the label's move to New York in the 80s! The music here is often build upon structures forged in earlier Studio One recordings – but updated with a dubbier late 70s vibe, ... 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

Funky Kingston (Island version)
Island/Get On Down, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)
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!

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Soul Jazz (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2LP
Soul Jazz keeps up the pressure, dipping deep into the never ending well of Studio One niceness for a second set of dub goodies rendered by Coxsone Dodd's alter dub ego, The Dub Specialist. Unlike some of the other dub vendors, Dodd doesn't go too nuts with the effects and so forth, keeping ... LP, Vinyl record album

Soul Jazz/Studio One (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2LP
Another blinding compilation of fantastic Studio One material from Soul Jazz! It seems more than redundant to say that at this point, as we're certain you're well aware of the quality of the material collected here, which is just as great as every other set in this long running series. This ... LP, Vinyl record album

Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2LP
Great early work from the legendary Studio One – and some important sounds that really show the link between Jamaican reggae and American soul!

Soul Jazz (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 2 LPs Gatefold

Island, 1977. Very Good
Late 70s solo effort from this founding member of the Wailers, self-produced on his own Solomonic label and then licensed to Island for worldwide distribution.
