Cedric Im Brooks & Light Of SabaCedric Im Brooks & Light Of Saba ... CD
Honest Jons (UK), 1970s. Used ... $7.99
How this burningly bad set has remained under wraps for so long is beyond us, but thanks to the folks at Honest Jon's, it's been brought to the much needed light of day! An excellent set collecting work from throughout the career of Cedric Im Brooks, spanning a wide assortment of styles, but all with a deep spiritual approach that Brooks gathered from time spent in his youth in Philadelphia, where he fell under the influence of Sun Ra, almost joining the Arkestra before returning home to Jamaica. The set jumps from heavy, dark roots and Nyabhingi influenced reggae, including some nice dubbed out versions, to Jamaican jazz sides like his take on Horace Silver's classic "Song For My Father", to some tightly snapping disco influenced grooves and bouncing afrobeat rhythms that would make Fela proud! 19 tracks in all, including "Free Up Black Man", "Satta Massa Gana", "Jah Light It Right", "Lambs Bread Collie", "Salt Lane rock", "Rasta Lead On Version", "Sly Mongoose", "Africa", "Collie Version", "Rebirth" and "Sabebe".

✨✧ Toots & The MaytalsBest Of Toots & The Maytals ... LP
Trojan (UK), 1979. Used ... Out Of Stock
Classic funky reggae from Kingston, and a band that never seemed to lose their groove! There's moments in here where you'd almost swear The Meters were playing backup, and even if the set isn't as dub-heavy as some of its contemporaries, it more than makes up for that with a righteous solid soul sound. Titles include "I Can't Believe", "Pressure Drop", "Monkey Man", "Gold & Silver", "Pomp & Pride", "Redemption Song", "Time Tough", and "African Doctor". 14 cuts in all! LP, Vinyl record album
(Light orange label pressing. Cover has some edge wear.)
