✨✧ 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)".

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".

ScientistDub Album They Didn't Want You To Hear ... LP
Jah Life, Late 70s. New Copy ... $14.99 19.98
Classic level Scientist dubs from the end of the 70s/dawn of the 80s – cut at Channel 1 with backing by the Roots Radics Band – and Jah Life sitting on the production and arrangements! We don't know why anyone wouldn't want you to hear it, but The Dub Album They Didn't Want You To Hear was cut as a dub companion Flick Wilson's School Days LP, and it's really strong stuff – hard to believe that languished unreleased for the next couple of decades. There's a raw, wollopling clap on the percussion tip, and the rhythmic sensibility is pretty heavy in general – balanced nicely by lightly vamping guitars, keyboards that range from soulful to spacey, and an echoey atmosphere that's tripped out just enough. Includes "Jah Turn The Dub", "My Lady's Dub", "Yallas Dub", "Slave Master Dub", "Where Wicked Gonna Dub", "Facts Of Dub", "I Don't Mind Dub", "Don't Give Up Your Culture Dub", "Rockers Dub" and "School Days Dub".

VariousGlory, Dominion, Power, Majesty: Half Moon Productions ... LP
PK/Half Moon (UK), 1970s/1980s. New Copy 2 LPs ... $25.99
The folks at Honest Jon's and PK have done it again! Scoring another reggae reissue coup by digging a little deeper and coming up with the goods: a batch of nice tracks from the 70s and early 80s heyday of the Toronto-based reggae label Half Moon Productions, when it played host to stars like Augustus Pablo, Stranger Cole, Johnny Osbourne and Leroy Sibbles, as well as a handful of lesser known local ringers, too. Producer Oswald Creary and the Super 8 Corporation house band may not exactly be household names to even the most die-hard fan, but then we never really were about household names here at Dusty, and neither are the selectors over at Honest Jon's. Like his contemporary Lloyd Bullwackie Barnes, Creary and crew crafted a batch of heavy, deep modern roots, with the cream collected here, 17 tracks in all: Joe Higgs "Creation", Stranger Cole "Freedom, Justice & Equality", Super 8 Corporation "Freedom Version" and "Free Version", Louis O'Connor "Lonely & Black", Pluggy Satchmo "What Rasta Say" and "23rd Psalm", Rothadam "Sampson", OJ "Things Felt Right", The Blenders "Why Did You Run Away?", Dill Smith "Set Me Free", Stranger Cole & Jah Levi "I'm Living", Bongo Ossie & The Moonlights "Black Society", Johnny Osbourne "Danger In Your Eyes", Bingi Kicks & G.Campbell "Sky Jack", Leroy Sibbles & The Otravis Band "Skyjacking Version" and Carl Dawkins "Luv Is Needed".

VariousPunky Reggae Party – New Wave Jamaica 1975-1980 ... CD
Trojan, Mid 70s-Early 80s. Used ... $16.99
It seems the international impact of reggae ebbs and flows, and when young British punk rocker's latched onto the militant message coming from the island's roots movement, it picked up for a time. This compilation highlights some of the numbers that went over big with that generation, and makes a great set, even if you ignore the overriding theme. Two CDs filled with solid, solid roots, rock and reggae including Scratch's "White Belly Rat" and "City Too Hot", John Holt's "Up Park Camp", Marley's "Natural Mystic", The Heptones "Cool Rasta", Junior Delgado "Sons Of Slaves", Prince Far I "Under Heavy Manners", Althea & Donna "Uptown Ranking", Linval Thompson "I Love Marijuana", Mikey Dread "Barber Saloon", Bim Sherman "Lightning & Thunder", Vin Gordon "Liquid Horns", Prince Jammy "Throne Of Blood" and Dennis Brown "Money In My Pocket".

✨✧ King TubbyDub From The Roots ... LP
Clocktower, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Wicked dub from mighty King Tubby – a set of reworked sounds from cuts by Jackie Edwards, Johnny Clarke, John Holt, Horace Andy, and others – all given some heavy-bottomed touches by Tubby! The tracks are all instrumentals, with plenty of bass bubbling in an echoey pit – mixed with organ, drums, and especially nice guitar that often glides out highest in the mix – with a slightly cleaner feel than other instrumentation. Titles include "Double Cross", "African Roots", "Iyahta", "Dub From The Roots", "Hijack The Barber", "Invasion", and "Dub Of A Woman". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousHaul & Pull Up Selecta – Trojan Presents Heavyweight Dancehall 1979-82 ... CD
Trojan (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used 2CDs ... Out Of Stock
An excellent collection spotlighting a neglected corner in the history of Jamaican music! David Hendley pulls together a fine selection of some the heaviest jams to rock the dancehalls, when the roots movement was beginning to take a back seat to these party rocking numbers. Loads of cuts that have been hard to get a hold of for years, many in extended 12"versions – 23 of them in all, including Ken Boothe & Prince Jammy "You're No Good", The Morwells & Prince Jammy "Kingston 12 Tuffy (12" Channel One mix)", Barrington Levy "A Yah We Deh", "Sensimillia" & "Shaolin Temple (12" version)", Scientist & The Soul Syndicate "Good Dub", Badoo & Toyan "Rocking Of The 5000 (12" version)", Tristan Palma "Spliff Tail" & "How Can A Man Be Happy", The Viceroys "The Can't Stop Us Now" & "Love Is The Key" and Linval Thompson & Scientist "Pop No Style (12" version)" plus, many ,many more!

✨✧ VariousStudio One DJs ... LP
Soul Jazz/Studio One (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Another great Studio One collection from the folks at Soul Jazz, this time highlighting the DeeJays! While heavyweights like Big Youth & U Roy never voiced tracks for the groundbreaking label, there's no shortage of first class toasting on this selection, and it's Studio One, so you know the rhythms are hot! Dennis Alcapone, Dillinger and Prince Jazzbo all come hard with tracks like "Power Version" and "Natty Kung Fu", and there's a few sweet numbers by less well known names like Prince Francis & Jah Jesco, plus a nice slice of history with Count Machuki's "More Scorcha". 16 burning tracks in all. LP, Vinyl record album
