✨✧ PioneersBest Of The Pioneers ... CD
Trojan, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Classic work from one of the coolest Jamaican trios at the end of the 60s – a group who certainly take their harmonic inspiration from American soul – but also fuse their vocals nicely onto rocksteady and early reggae rhythms! The Pioneers are certainly well-named – as their approach really helped open the door for countless acts to come – yet few folks did it as well as these guys – able to be sweet one minute, raw the next – and always hitting the right kind of groove. The set features a whopping 40 tracks from their years at Trojan Records – and titles include "The Battle Of The Giants", "Starvation", "Reggae Fever", "Driven Back", "Black Bud", "Personality", "You Don't Know Like I Know", "Storybook Children", "Long Shot Kick De Bucket", "Time Hard", "Samfie Man", "Riot In A Notting Hill", and "At The Discotheque".

SkatalitesIndependence Ska & The Far East Sound – Original Ska Sounds From The Skatalites 1963 to 1965 ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $16.99 22.99
Original ska sounds from the originators themselves – 20 incredible numbers by the Skatalites & friends – with many of their most essential recordings, and rare stunners, to boot! The period in focus here is the initial few years of The Skatalites as a bonafide band, but the principal players – including Don Drummond, Roland Alphonso, Tommy McCook, Lester Sterling, Jackie Mittoo and other legendary names – had been honing their craft together for years, backing a who's who of Jamiacan musical heavies from calypso, to mento, to jazz and beyond. No wonder they burst out of the gate with some of the tightest rhythms in the music history, but it's stunning to this day! Really one of the finest Soul Jazz compilations in years, with a wealth of great notes, too! Includes their uber-classic "Guns Of Navarone", "Suavito", "Russian Ska Fever", "El Pussycat Ska", "Tell Them Lord" with The Wailers, "Further East" and "King Solomon" – along with the rarer "Sudden Destruction" with Dizzy Johnson, "Coolie Boy" billed to Don Drummond and lots more.

Toots & The MaytalsIn The Dark ... LP
Dragon/Get On Down, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 20.98
A classic by one of Jamaica's most soulful groups – an excellent early set from Toots & The Maytals. Issued right around the same time as the Funky Kingston LP, but actually with a bit more of a funky twist to it! While the In The Dark does indeed have a funky edge to it, we're making no bones here, they really stand strong as sweet soulful reggae at its best, making it no wonder why Toots & The Maytals were to become one of reggae's biggest international stars. Includes "Got To Be There", "In The Dark", "Fever", "Revolution", "Sailing On", and their blistering version of "Take Me Home Country Roads"! LP, Vinyl record album

VariousSly & Robbie Present – Taxi Gang In Disco Mix Style 1977 to 1987 ... CD
Cree (Germany), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy ... $18.99 21.99
A very cool side of the Sly & Robbie legend – a series of recordings the duo made with a range of different singers – all as Jamaican-styled remakes of American soul and club tracks from the 70s! The vibe here is definitely more reggae than disco – with a groove slowed down a lot more than the speed of Studio 54 – and the pair are really coming into their own as creative talents, working on the experience they gained for years on other folks' records – which really helps create the right sort of rhythms for these grooves. As you'd guess from the dates in the title, the set stretches into the digital reggae years – which turned out to be one of the most productive periods for Sly & Robbie – and titles include "Sexual Healing" by Jimmy Riley, "Show & Tell" by Ken Boothe, "Could It Be I'm Falling In Love" by Home T-4, "Inner City Blues" by Delroy Wilson, "Break Your Promise" by Barry Biggs, "You Must Believe In Me" by Junior Tamlins Moore, "Fever" by Marcia Griffiths, and "Rainy Night In Georgia" by Tinga Stewart.

✨✧ Horace AndyIn The Light (plus In The Light Dub) ... CD
Hungry Town/17 North Parade, 1977. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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! Horace is one of the few cats who can sing in the higher end of the vocal register, yet still come across with a totally badass vibe – thanks partly to the righteous message in his lyrics, and the hip-tripping grooves on the tracks – which could make just about any element sound great, and only reinforce the greatness of the Horace Andy style! The album's a stone classic, and for good reason – and titles include "Leave Rasta", "Do You Love My Music", "Hey There Woman", "Government Land", "Problems", "In The Light", and "Collie Herb". CD also includes the seminal In The Light Dub – one of those cases where a dub album contains all the brilliance of the original set around which it was based – yet comes across with a completely different sound altogether! The original record was focused strongly on the soulful currents of Horace Andy's voice – but the dub set is predominantly instrumental, which buries a bit of the political message in the lyrics – yet seems to paint the same sort of social pictures with the power of its sounds – a rich palette of rhythms, electronics, and effects – often with a darkness that's unspeakable in words, but incredibly powerful at a sonic level. Titles include "Dub There", "Government Dub", "Rasta Dub", "Fever Dub", "Dub The Light", "Dub Down Rome", and "I & I". CD
