✨✧ VariousRockers – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Mango, 1970s. Very Good ... $14.99
After the success of The Harder They Come, everyone was ready for films about Jamaica with a heavy leaning towards the music scene to be the next big thing, and the film Rockers tried to capitalize on that. The film never matched the former's success, though it does have some choice footage with excellent performances by many reggae greats, and the soundtrack's no joke either, loaded down with some nice, nice tracks by the real heavyweights. 14 tracks in all: "We A Rockers" by Inner Circle, "Money Worries" by The Maytones, "Police & Thieves" by Junior Murvin, "Book Of Rules" by The Heptones, "Stepping Razor" by Peter Tosh, "Tenement Yard" by Jacob Miller, "Fade Away" by Junior Byles, "Rockers" by Bunny Wailer, "Slave Master" by Gregory Isaacs, "Dread Lion" by The Upsetters, "Graduation In Zion" by Kiddus I, "Jah No Dead" by Burning Spear, "Satta Massagana" by Third World, and "Natty Take Over" by Justin Hinds & The Dominos. LP, Vinyl record album
(Original Mango pressing, missing inner sleeve. Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ Justin Hines & The DominosJezebel ... LP
Island, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A nice heavy platter from former Treasure Isle star Justin Hines and his backing group the Dominos, featuring production by Jack Ruby and the backing of the Black Disciples band, the team that helped Burning Spear craft some of his best roots albums. While Hinds had a rawer, less polished approach to his own singing, and the vocal harmonies of the Dominos followed suit, that's what makes this set stand out from the rest of the pack Island was recruiting at the time, and the Black Disciples craft some tough rhythms for a great mid 70s roots side. Includes "Fire", "Prophecy", a nice recut of his earlier hit "Carry go Bring Home", "Dip And Fall Back", "Natty Take Over" and "What You Don't Know". LP, Vinyl record album
(US pressing. Cover has a cut corner, light wear, and aging.)

Don't get intimidated, it just the Tappa!

RevolutionariesDub Out Her Blouse & Skirt Vol 1 ... LP
Bond Export, 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 20.98
Late 70s dub from producer Donovan Germain – served up through a wicked batch of instrumentals from The Revolutionaries – who play here at their tripped-out best! The tunes have an offbeat feel that's different from more conventional dub – very little ties to any sort of initial song roots, with keyboard lines, moogy electronics, and other weird sounds that fly all over the place – while the rhythms are very deep, tight, and in the pocket – slow-stepping in heavy sonic space, with lots of nice splash around the drums! The original album was issued through Brooklyn's Keith Records – quite rare – and titles include "Ready To Dub", "Juliet's Delight", "Wisdom Dub", "So Much Dub", "Craven Park Dub", and "Don't Break This Dub". LP, Vinyl record album

CongosHeart Of The Congos (2LP deluxe edition) ... LP
17 North Parade/VP, 1976. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $22.99
A classic slice of Jamaican roots! No collection of Lee Perry's work is complete without this chapter, which has been hard to get in spite of being reissued in a number of different formats. This version features a slight twist on the original cover art, but is an expanded double LP set with a bonus disc of later self-produced material. On the original album, recorded at the Black Ark in 1976, Cedric Mytton teams up with Roy Johnson on harmony vocals, with Lee Perry steering the Ark with a heavyweight supporting crew, for a true milestone in Jamaican music, and a classic of universal proportions. The second LP features material from 4 different sessions, all great, with tracks from the 1979 LPs Cvongo Ashanti and Image of Africa, the 1981 LP Face The Music and a couple of tracks from 1999. 22 tracks in all, including "Fisherman", "Congoman", "Open Up The Gate", "Children Crying", "La La Bam-Bam", "Can't Come In", "Sodom & Gomorrow", "The Wrong Thing", "ArkOf Covenant", "Don't Blame On I", "Solid Foundation", "Days Chasing Days", "Youth Man", "Only Jah Know", "Music Maker", "Stay Alive (ext)", "Problems", "Face The Music", "Enemy & Spy (ext)" and "Aaron & Moses (ext)". LP, Vinyl record album
