✨✧ VariousStudio One Ska Fever – More Ska Sounds From Sir Coxone's Downbeat ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 2 LPs Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Forget everything you know about ska music from recent years – no Mighty Mighty cliches, no retro-styled clunkers, no two-toned sounds at all – just the real deal, the roots of the style, served up here in classic recordings that go right to the source! These are the cuts that started it all – and which still sound way better to our ears than any of the countless imitations that have been crafted over the years – played with a freshness and a sharp edge that recent recordings can never hope to touch! The music here is the roots of reggae crafted in the soil of Kingston – recorded by the legendary Studio One Records, with all the soulful undercurrents you'd find in the rocksteady generation as well. It's been a few years since Soul Jazz have served up a set of Jamaican grooves this tight – but it's been well worth the wait, given the track selection and always-stellar level of presentation from the label. Titles include "Live Good" by The Ethiopians, "Mr Talkative" by The Wailers, "There's A Reward" by Joe Higgs & Roy Wilson, "Ska La Parisienne" by The Skatalites, "Don't Try To Reach Me" by The Gaylads, "Gumma" by Lee Perry, "Freedom Sounds" by Soul Brothers, "You Won't See Me" by The Clarendonians, and "Old Rocking Chair" by Jakie Opel.

Junior BylesBeat Down Babylon – The Upsetter Years ... CD
Trojan (UK), 1970s. Used ... $19.99
Like so many vocalists, Junior Byles shone brightest under the guidance of Lee Perry, and this excellent retrospective collects more than just a few of the great Jamaican soul sides he'd cut under his production. All of these numbers have the spare loping groove, with nice organ lines and bouncing bass that were the hallmark of Scratch's early 70's work, laced with Byles' great roots vocals over top. 23 tracks in all, including "I've Got A Feeling", "Don't Know Why", "Coming Home", "Beat Down Babylon", "A Place Called Africa", "Poor Chubby", "Hail To Power", "Fever", "When Will Better Come", "Curly Locks" and "Dreader Locks".

✨✧ Susan CadoganHurt So Good (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Trojan (UK), 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An amazing CD issue of Susan Cadogan's 1976 LP – plus nearly another album's worth of bonus tracks! The Hurts So Good album features the more romantic side of Lee Scratch Perry's producer vibe – a style that gets a little lost with younger collectors who clamor for the Scratch's freaky Roots feel – but the vibe compliments Cadogan's smooth vocal style perfectly. Nice! Album cuts include the great title cut, "In the Ghetto", "I Keep on Loving You", "Feeling Is Right", "Fever" and "Shame". The bonus cuts feature the single edit of "Hurts So Good", plus a number of Upsetters cuts from the vaults and others – including "Dub It", and "Rub A Dub" by the Upsetters,"Junior Byles cut of "Fever", "This World" by Milton Henry, and more.

✨✧ VariousDon Letts Presents The Mighty Trojan Sound ... CD
Trojan (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Don Letts has always been a mover and shaker on the London scene, building connections between the punk movement and helping a lot of Jamaican artists get signed to British labels, so it's only fitting that he should be tapped as selector for a collection of tracks from the deep, deep Trojan vaults. Like his Social Classics comp, this awesome 2 disc set is a tremendous selection of vocal, dee jay, instrumental and dub cuts, some well known, but many more obscure and still great nuggets. 44 tracks, all killer, no filler! Includes John Holt "It's A Jam In The Streets", Big Youth "Foreman Vs Frazier", Hopeton Lewis "Boom Shacka Laka", Shorty "President Mash Up The Resident", Glen Washington "Rockers No Crackers", Junior Byles "Fever", Lloyd Robinson "Cuss Cuss", Gregory Isaacs "Mr Know It All", The Hippy Boys "Doctor No Go", Karl Bryan "Soul Scorcher", Harry J All Stars "The Liquidator", The Chosen Few "Theme From Shaft", The Aggrovators "Channel One Is A Joker", Boris Gardiner "Elizabethan Reggae", King Tubby "I Trim The Barber", Dave & Ansell Collins "Double Barrel", Scientist "Scientist (Stalag 17)", Linval Thompson "Jamaican Callie (version)" and Prince Jammy & The Aggrovators "Out Of Order".
