VariousWest Indies Soul ... CD
Trans Air (Puerto Rico), 1970s. New Copy ... $4.99 17.98
A more soul-centric set from the folks behind the West Indies Funk series – and the best overall batch yet from the island music connoisseurs at San Juan's Trans Air label – here's hoping West Indies Soul blossoms into a series of its own! There's actually still quite a bit of funk in the equation here – which is, by and large, a sweet set of sun-toasted funky soul, with a bit of a tropical infusion – a couple recognizable names and many more we're seeing for the first time. Timeless, goodtime soul numbers by Mark Holder, The Guinness Casanovas, Johnny Baptiste, Judy Mowatt, Soul Vendors, Lloyd Williams with Tommy McCook & The Supersonics, Dobby Dobson and others. Includes "Bring My Lover Back" by Mark Holder, "Expressway to Your Heart" by The Guiness Casanovas, "Funky Broadway" by Lians Thelwell & His Celestials, "Goodbye Baby" by Lloyd Willaims With Tommy McCook & The Supersonics, "Johnny's Dream" by Johnny Baptiste, 'People Get Ready" by The Troubadours, "Too Good For Me" by Judy Mowatt, "What Love Has Joined Together" by Dobby Dobson, "What An Experience" by Judy Mowatt and more. 16 in all.

✨✧ VariousGussie Presenting The Right Tracks ... CD
17 North Parade, 1970s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Classic productions from the legendary Augustus "Gussie" Clarke – all work recorded at Channel One and King Tubby's – and done in this laidback, soulful groove that's completely sublime! The music here never goes too far over the top – just sweet and subtle rhythms that have this gentle-stepping quality that works perfect with the vocals – which are delivered by some of the most soulful singers on the scene at the time. All horn arrangements are by Tommy McCook and Bobby Ellis, but also have this mellow vibe too – very different than some of the earlier material, often with snakey elements that really work great with the vocals. This great package from VP & 17 North Parade includes all the tracks from the original mid 70s release, plus lot more material from this pivotal period – with some previously unreleased tracks, and more great Gussie productions from a bit later on in the decade. 40 tracks on 2CDs: "The Right Track" by Tommy McCook", "Guiding Star" by Leroy Sibbles, "Scorch Special" and "Gussie Special" by Simplicity People, "How Can I Love Someone" by Delroy Wilson, "Born To Dub You" by Augustus Pablo, "Try Me" by Roman Stewart, "Leggo Beast" by I Roy, "The Killer Version" by Society Squad, "Danger In Your Dub" by Tommy McCook, "Love The Daughter" by Trinity, "Peace Can Solve It" by I Roy and more.
