Tony Aiken & FutureLiberation ... CD
Boom Shot, 2016. New Copy ... $9.99
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

Roland AlphonsoABC Rocksteady ... CD
Gay Feet/Dub Store (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $10.99 19.99
A great showcase for the instrumental talents of Jamaican saxophonist Roland Alphonso – one of the key players who helped transform the sound of the scene in the 60s! But despite Roland's name on the front, the album's more of a group affair overall – directed by Boris Gardinier, and ... read more CD

Hungry Town/17 North Parade, 1977. New Copy ... $12.99 14.98
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!

Jamaican Recordings (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $13.99

Raw grooves from the Jamaican scene of the pre-reggae years – served up here in a blend of early ska, jump up soul, and other jazzy styles of the time – all handled by Sonia Pottinger, who was the first female producer on the Kingston scene!

Errol BrownOrthodox Dub ... CD
Dub Store (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $18.99 19.99
There's nothing orthodox about this 70s dub gem from Erroll Brown – as the album's an unusual set from start to finish – even in an era when so many dub records were being produced! There's an extra-raw sound to the whole thing – which might be hinted at by its cover image – ... read more CD

High Note/Dub Store (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $18.99 19.99
The mighty Errol Brown is at the controls in Treasure Isle – reworking some wicked rhythms played by The Revolutionaries – all with the stripped-down vibe of the best underground dub from Kingston in the 70s! Echo is heavy on the bottom-end of the sound – which makes the grooves ... read more CD

Count Ossie & Mystic Revelation Of RastafariGrounation ... CD
Dub Store (Japan), 1972. New Copy 2 CDs ... $21.99 24.98
An amazing record, and one of the most spiritual, righteous sets to ever come from Jamaica in the 70s – and that's saying a heck of a lot, given that scene at the time! The vibe here is really rootsy, and almost more spiritual jazz than reggae – with lots of spare percussion from Count ... read more CD

Essential! The mighty debut album from African disciples Culture pairing up with the Mighty Two, Joe Gibbs and Errol Thompson is one of the landmark sets of roots reggae, a defining moment of the genre dropped during the year when two sevens clashed. And though the apocalypse didn't rain down ... read more CD

Trojan/Doctor Bird (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $11.99
Two classic albums by The Ethiopians – plus bonus tracks too!

Nighthawk/Omnivore, 1980. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
Overlooked indie work by The Gladiators – the legendary Jamaican group who rose to huge prominence in the 70s, but who were back working on smaller labels by the time of this release!
