CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Shanachie, 1979. New Copy
Righteous sounds from Willi Williams – a highly conscious set of roots reggae recorded at the end of the 70s – filled with powerful politics, but delivered in a laidback and very dubby style! Many of the rhythms come from Sly & Robbie – and have this stepping vibe that really ... CD

Kingston Sounds (UK), Early 70s. New Copy
Wonderful work from the team of Dave and Ansell Collins – a key act in helping Jamaican music transition from rocksteady to reggae at the start of the 70s – and a duo who had a surprising impact in the US, thanks to their funky style of work! Ansell handles all the keyboards – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used
An early meeting of giants and a compilation of Studio One material that's been a long time coming! When Soul Jazz first started dipping into the Studio One catalog, we were hopeful they'd get around to the extraordinary sides Burning Spear cut for Clement Dodd – his earliest recordings and ... CD

Muggers In The Street
Greensleeves (UK), 1984. Used
One of only a handful of full length albums by vocalist Junior Murvin – and a great meeting between Junjo Lawes and Murvin, a singer who's well known for his classic late 70s Black Ark material with Scratch Perry. His high, sweet vocals sound great showcasing Lawes' roots side, cut with the ... CD

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 ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Sinsemilla
Mango, 1980. Near Mint-
The follow up to the burning Showcase set and second LP finding the harmony trio of Michael Rose, Puma Jones and Duckie Simpson under the heavy guidance of Sly & Robbie.

East Of The River Nile
Shanachie, 1978. Used
One of Augustus Pablo's most classic records – from the title, to the cover, to the melodica-laden grooves within – prime Pablo with that ethereal sound that few other players could match on the instrument! The backings are warm and dubby – a perfect complement to the moody lead ... CD

No More Friend
Greensleeves (UK), 1983. Used
A set cut by this fantastic vocal harmony trio as the roots era faded and gave way to dancehall's preeminence, though you'd hardly guess it from this excellent set. Linval Thompson keeps his game up as producer, with the mighty Roots Radics delivering the rhythms that are sweet, tight and right, ... CD

Toots In Memphis
Mango, 1988. Used
Legendary Toots & The Maytals singer Toots Hibbert meets legendary Memphis producer Jim Dickinson – and the best session players that city has to offer! Toots was always reverent of greatest southern soul, so this effort is anything but forced. Toots tackles material by Otis Redding, Al ... CD

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

African Herbsman
Trojan, 1973. New Copy (reissue)
Great early work by Bob Marley & The Wailers – some of it produced by the legendary Lee Perry, too! Some of the tunes are early takes on later famous versions – but in a way, they're actually more definitive – in that they tie Marley back to the rich Kingston culture, instead ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Virgin/Universal (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2CD
Heavy dub from the vaults of Virgin Records – a 40 track collection that focuses on the best bassy grooves of the label's Frontline series! The work here is wonderful – maybe more firmly rooted in the Kingston scene than similar sounds on Island Records at the time – and very ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Pressure Sounds (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy
Another great set from Pressure Sounds! They really got us open when they pulled together their first set by the Royals, Pick Up The Pieces, and this dub and Dee Jay outing makes a perfect companion set. Excellent dubs rendered by the heaviest of the heavy mixologists: Tubby, Jammy, Scientist, ... CD

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 tons of classics, like "Get Up Stand Up", "Exodus", ... CD

Marcus Garvey
Mango/Island, 1975. New Copy (reissue)
An absolute classic! Burning Spear's Marcus Garvey is truly one of the greatest reggae albums of its time, one where the words are crucial and conscious, and the overall vibe is strongly defined by the arrangements of Winston Rodney. A landmark roots effort and an easy choice for our list of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Columbia, 1977. New Copy
Peter Tosh's great, strongly strident second album – and easily one of his best! Equal Rights is up to par with the finest Wailers LPs, although this is a bit heavier than the groovy, mellow Legalize It, the more celebrated predecessor. A hugely important, essential set of mid-to-late 70s ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Pressure Sounds (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2LP
An incredible set of low rolling, hypnotic dub genius from true reggae Revolutionaries – a batch of amazing tunes centered around the amazing drums of Sly Dunbar – cut in the mid-to-late 70s height of the Channel One groove! This might be the strongest collection of dubs that Pressure ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
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

Get Wise
Pressure Sounds (UK), 1975. New Copy (reissue)
LP (CD)
Prime 70s work from Horace Andy – recorded in this laidback, soul-drenched style that almost recalls the Kingston sound of a few years before! The setting is very earthy and up-close – a perfect placement for Andy's really unique vocals, which almost approximate some of the more ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pressure Sounds (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP
A stellar set of surviving 70s Black Ark productions by Lee Perry – with rare and unreleased cuts plus pivotal, if long-buried sides by Junior Byles, U Roy, Delroy Butler, Tinga Stewart, The Upsetters, The Flames, The Ethiopians, Jah T and more – Perry-produced gems for Kingston's ...

JAD/Cleopatra, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)
Dub version of the original follow up to the Lee Perry/Bob Marley collaboration Soul Rebels – a that set presents many Marley classics in their early raw forms – and here in tripped out dub form! Though Marley and Perry would both go on to greater success, these early sides are some of ... LP, Vinyl record album
