Various — Studio One Soul 2 ... CD 19.99

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. All flavors of reggae get represented here, but never departing from the soul theme, with dee jay numbers and dark dubs rubbing up against straight up renditions of numbers that are unafraid to pledge their allegiance to the great originals! Tracks include "Swing Easy" by the Soul Vendors, "Choice Of Colours" by the Heptones, "People Make The World Go Round" by Hortense Ellis, "Choice Of Music (Part 2)" by Jackie Mittoo and the Brentford Disco Set, "Thinking" by Ken Boothe, "Get Out Of My Life Woman" by Tony Gregory, "Fool For Love" by Prince Jazzbo, "Fancy Pants" by Jackie Mittoo, and "Darker Block" by the Dub Specialist.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Stranded
Greensleeves, 1984. New Copy (reissue)
A nice later effort from the legendary Wailing Souls – and their last album for Greensleeves, before rebooting a couple years later! '84's Stranded is a pretty strong record, with those achingly soulful voices front and center, and with a modern sound that holds up quite well! Sly Dunbar is ... LP, Vinyl record album

Medical, 1982. New Copy (reissue)
Not a Hawaiian band, as you might think from misreading the title – but a very cool early 80s German electronic duo – one with an equally great ear for tuneful melodies and darker moments!

Pterodactyl/Medical, 1983. New Copy (reissue)
Nasty electro punk from the enigmatic Lou Champagne – an obscure early 80s effort issue on Lou's own record label, but a killer cooker that would have shook the New York scene up plenty – had Champagne been working in the Big Apple at the time! There's a dark blend of analogue ... LP, Vinyl record album
