Tony Aiken & FutureLiberation ... CD
Boom Shot, 2016. New Copy ... $14.99
You might remember Tony Aiken for his classic funk album Unity, from the 70s – and here, he's back again – after nearly 40 years away from the studio! The album's got a style that's a lot more reggae-influenced than before – maybe not totally a reggae record, given the other ... (Soul, Reggae) read more CD

The Pama Years material from ska legend Laurel Aitken – tracks released between 1969 and 1971 on UK soul label Pama's reggae subsidiary Nu Beat/Newbeat – some of which were big hits for Laurel and others that have been fairly obscure and neglected for the past couple decades! 18 tracks ... read more CD

Gladstone Gladdy AndersonGlad Sounds (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Merritone/Dub Store (Japan), 1968. Used ... $9.99
Sweet instrumental sounds from pianist Gladdy Anderson – working here with superb backings from Lynn Taitt & The Jets – who step back a bit to let the piano take the lead on most numbers! The style is rocksteady, but a nicely laidback version of the groove, too – so that ... read more CD

Pressure Sounds (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
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 ... read more CD

Hungry Town/17 North Parade, 1977. Used ... $7.99
Horace Andy's holding an acoustic guitar on the cover, but the record's got some searing electric lines in the mix – really bringing this sharp edge to the already-great rhythms behind Andy's famous vocals!

Black UhuruDub Factor ... CD
Mango/Island, 1983. New Copy ... $4.99 11.98
One of our top 10 dub albums of all time! This album bridges the gap between the the low-fi, down and dirty excursions of the 70's dub era, and the later high tech dub revolution brought on by On-U, Mad Professor and Jah Shaka. The rhythms here are all first rate, drawn mostly from their Chill Out ... read more CD

One of the most soulful voices in Jamaican music – presented here in a wonderful collection that includes some of Ken Boothe's early rocksteady material, then runs through his bigger famous cuts of the 70s!

Fresh dubs of rare tracks by Dennis Bovell – all redone recently, but with a vibe that's right up there with the best of classic Kingston!

Burning SpearHail HIM ... CD
Heartbeat, 1980. Used ... $5.99
Probably the last of the classic Burning Spear LPs, this still finds Rodney singing in a solo format, and has a bit of a change up from the Black Disciples lineup that had backed him on the previous Island LPs. It's co produced by Aston Family Man Barrett, and the rhythms are a bit denser, while ... read more CD

The vital follow up to the crucial Marcus Garvey set, and the second collaboration between Burning Spear and producer Jack Ruby.

Palm/Mango, 1975. Used ... $14.99

Federal/Dub Store (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
A sweet piano album with a very groovy feel – one cut by Jamaican pianist Leslie Butler, but in a mode that's got this free-floating approach to jazz! The album features a small group – just Butler's quartet, with flute and tenor from Carlton Samuels – but there's this slightly ... (Jazz, Reggae) read more CD
