VariousRockers – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Mango, 1970s. Very Good ... $11.99
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.)

✨✧ EqualsBorn Ya! ... LP
Mercury (UK), 1978. Used ... Out Of Stock
Funky funky reggae! This album's a stone lost classic from this incredible British group that once featured a young Eddy Grant. Eddy wrote and produced the album, and the whole thing's a perfect mix of bass-heavy funk, and choppy reggae grooves – with that strange Brit soul groove that's never gotten much cred until recent years. Includes the excellent "Funky Like A Train", plus "Born Ya", "Stone Cold Cat", "Kaywana Sunshine Girl", "Soul Mother", "Superman", "Neighbor Neighbor", and "People Like Me & You". (Soul, Reggae) LP, Vinyl record album
(90s reissue pressing. Cover has some light wear.)

✨✧ ScientistDub Album They Didn't Want You To Hear ... CD
Jah Life, Late 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ RevolutionariesDub Out Her Blouse & Skirt Vol 1 ... LP
Bond Export, 1979. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ CongosHeart Of The Congos (2LP deluxe edition) ... LP
17 North Parade/VP, 1976. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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
