CD


4.50 18

Rarities from the mighty Yabby You – with some remarkably strong, though little heard rootsy dub from Yabby and his extended brethren – including some recently discovered bits! The title Deeper Roots works on dual fronts. It's got pretty rare material, discovered by the always deep diggers at Pressure Sounds – but the material has deeper spiritual resonance, too – with a nice Rasta vibe running throughout! Yabby is joined by King Tubby, Barrington Spence, the rarely recorded Prince Pampidoo, King Manuel, The Prophets and others. Includes "Valley Of Joeasaphat" and "Joeasaphat Rock" with Smith & The Prophets, "Don't Touch I Dread" with Barington Spence", "Tutch Dub" with Prophet All Stars, "Dip Them Bedward" with Prince Pampidoo, "Dub Them Bedward" with Prophet All Stars, "Forward On The Track" with King Miguel, "Caymamas Rock" with King Miguel & The Prophets, "Cleo's Dub" with Hot City Allstars and more. Also includes some exclusive dub plate mixes with King Tubby – featuring Tommy McCook, The Prophets and others! 19 tracks in all!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Dub To Africa
Pressure Sounds (UK), 1979. New Copy
The first in many great reissues by the fine folks at Pressure Sounds to document the great talent of Prince Far I both behind the mic, or in this case, the board as producer.

Reggae In Jazz
Pressure Sounds (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy
Masterful reggae instrumentals from the great Tommy McCook! Reggae In Jazz does indeed have some jazz-steeped solos augmenting the vibe quite nicely, but it's perhaps not the full on reggae/jazz hybrid the title suggests – which is a good thing, actually! The rhythms are strongly rooted in ... CD
Elevation/Pressure Sounds (UK), 1979. New Copy
One of the best records ever by Joe Higgs! Higgs is one of classic reggae's best songwriters and one of it's most distinctive voices – having written for, performed with or simply influenced some of the biggest names in the game – but his own great records didn't really crossover to ... CD
Man From Bozrah
Kingston Sounds (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy
Seminal work from Tapper Zukie – a record that not only helped define a new chapter in reggae, but also went onto have an influence on the punk generation as well! The rhythms are awash in heavy dub, and Zukie speaks as much as he sings – swirling out in the echoey space with a quality ... CD

Another essential batch of Studio One Soul, every bit as great as the first! 18 more astoundingly great Jamaican renditions of soul and R&B numbers from the hands of Coxsone Dodd and his extraordinary stable of artists, some deeply soulful, and others with a more rootsy, raw grain to them. ... CD
Jamaican Recordings (UK), 1974/1975/1976. New Copy
Blazing mid 70s dubs from the Bunny "Striker' Lee canon – some of finer versions released on Trojan's Jackpot imprint from 1974 to 1976 – which was essentially set up to put out Bunny's productions at the time! Features versions sourced from great period numbers by Mighty ... CD
Stiff/Pressure Drop (UK), Early 80s. New Copy
The complete Stiff Records work of Desmond Dekker – served up here on two albums, plus bonus tracks too! First up is Black & Dekker – surprisingly great later work from the legendary Desmond Dekker – a set that should have been a sloppy cash-in during the ska revival, but ... CD
Hot Milk (UK), Early 70s. New Copy
Legendary early 70s Upsetters instrumentals – a brilliant, soulful batch of Jamaican versions produced by Lee Scratch Perry – and unlike the Trojan release from around the same time, this one was released with Scratch's full involvement! Fantastic work that sounds great to this day, ... CD
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! Junjo Lawes and Roots Radics may well have robbed from the rich for the mighty blasts of ... CD
