AbyssiniansSatta Massagana ... CD
Jam Sounds/Heartbeat, 1976. Used ... $4.99
An essential reissue of an essential roots album! A mid 70s landmark of harmony roots, the Abyssinians' Satta Massagana, aka Forward To Zion, is hard to beat for hardcore, spiritual roots delivered over hypnotically pulsing rhythms, and Heartbeat ups the ante by digging deep for some excellent and ... read more CD

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

Laurel AitkenFantastic Laurel Aitken ... CD
Pressure Drop (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $8.99 13.99
Another batch of Aitken, and of all the issues by the Pressure Drop imprint, the most stylistically diverse! Like the others, this set is a reissue of a great LP, The Fantastic Laurel Aitken, which itself was a collection of singles – but having been compiled a little later than the other ... 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

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

Trojan (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2CD ... $9.99
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! Ken wasn't nearly as big a hit over here as artists like Jimmy Cliff or Bob Marley, ... read more CD

Pressure Sounds does it again, with another fine collection of mighty, mighty dub!

Pressure Sounds (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
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! The package has a fascinating origin – in that Bovell had a recent medical ban on playing the bass, so decided to turn the clock back, dig up some ... read more CD

✨✧ 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

Island, 1976. Used ... $4.99
The vital follow up to the crucial Marcus Garvey set, and the second collaboration between Burning Spear and producer Jack Ruby. While the earlier Studio One sides are truly great, the work of the group (still a harmony vocal trio) at this point took the next step to classic status – with ... read more CD

✨✧ Burning SpearMarcus Garvey ... CD
Palm/Mango, 1975. Used ... $14.99
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 ... read more CD

Leslie Butler Plus 3We've Only Just Begun (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
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
