On-U Sound (UK), Mid 80s. New Copy 5CD ... $32.99 34.99
Seminal sounds from the On-U Sound label – a set of albums that provides one of the most lasting illustration of the label's genius! African Head Charge work in this unique blend of Jamaican dub, British post-punk electronics, and some earthier textures that might be more at home in Brian Eno's "fourth world" series – a masterful blend handled by producer Adrian Sherwood, who's still at the height of his power here – and works with percussion from Bonjo I, melodica from Doctor Pablo, saxes from Deadly Headly, and some nice echoey drums from Mus'come and AV Scott. Lizard provides the heavy bass – that rumbling bottom that really makes the records bump – and this wonderful package features the full albums My Life In A Hole In The Ground, Environmental Studies, Drastic Season, and Off The Beaten Track – plus a full bonus Unreleased Tracks & Version Excursions – with 11 rare and unheard tracks on CD for the first time! Also includes a 24 page booklet with notes and photos. CD

Cornell CampbellDance In A Greenwich Farm ... CD
Radiation Roots (Italy), 1975. New Copy ... $15.99
Sublime soul from Cornell Campbell – a Jamaican singer, but one who lists Sam Cooke, Curtis Mayfield, and Bobby Womack as his strongest inspirations! You can definitely hear that trio of heavyweights on Cornell's vocals here – which are wonderful, and filled with inflections from 60s soul – sliding slinkily over rhythms provided by The Agrovators, and produced with a very rich sound by the great Bunny Lee! The album's a great 70s evolution of the rocksteady soul of the previous decade – with almost a sweet soul current in the mix – and titles include "Conquering Gorgon", "Girl Of My Dreams", "Natural Facts", "Lost In A Dream", "Somebody Has Stolen My Girl", "Why Did You Leave Me", and "Watch This Sound".

Aquarius SoundsDubbing At Aquarius Studios 1977 to 1979 ... CD
Jamaican Recordings (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $13.99
Heavy dub from the enigmatic Aquarius Studios on the Kingston scene of the late 70s – the creative center of Herman Chin-Loy – whose work on the scene not only helped shape the sound of dub music for the future, but also launched the career of Augustus Pablo! The work here is mostly stripped-down, and created from cuts that were wholly or partially recorded at Aquarius – with additional work by King Tubby, over rhythms by Soul Syndicate, High Times Players, and Aggrovators Band! The vibe here definitely lives up to Herman's famous Aquarius Dub album – and titles include "Cheater Dub", "Mix Up Dub", "Breaking Dub", "She Gone Dub", "Roaming Dub", "Emperor Dub", "Short Man Dub", and "Olives Dub".

African Head ChargeReturn Of The Crocodile – Unreleased Tracks & Version Excursions 1981 to 1986 (with download) ... LP
On-U Sound (UK), Early 80s. New Copy ... $18.99 19.99
Long-lost material from one of the coolest groups on the UK scene in the post-punk years – a wealth of unreleased tracks from the mighty African Head Charge – a group whose sound perfectly defined the legendary On-U Sound record label! The tunes are often quite spare and stripped-down – showcasing the core AHC sound of percussionist Bongo and studio wizard Adrian Sherwood – and his fantastic talent for creating analogue electronic madness alongside core organic, acoustic elements. Some of these tracks appeared in different versions on later albums, but these recordings are very raw and experimental – a real showcase for the On-U genius at its best! Titles include "More Bizarre", "Doctor Find", "Low Protein Snack", "Snake In The Goal", "Makola Market", and "Slippery Heel". LP, Vinyl record album

AggrovatorsRasta Dub 76 ... CD
Grounation/Radiation Roots (Italy), 1976. New Copy ... $15.99
It's hard to get better than this when it comes to dub – core sounds from the mighty Agrovators, working with production from Bunny Lee, and sweet mixdown at King Tubbys! The instrumentation is fantastic – more than great enough without even the larger studio processes that really send it soaring – bass from Robbie Shakespear, drums from Santa Davis and Clarton Barrett, guitar from Chinna Smith, organ from Ossie Bongo, and piano from Bernard Harvey – all wrapped together beautifully in these effortless, easygoing grooves! Titles include "None Shall Escape Dub", "Fatty Boom Boom Dub", "Dread Locks Bald Head Dub", "Two Face Rasta Dub", "Ja Ja In De Dub", "Ites Gold Green Dub", "No Woman No Cry Dub", "Small Axe Dub", and "If You Should Loose Me Dub".

Tony Aiken & FutureLiberation ... CD
Boom Shot, 2016. New Copy ... $9.99
You might remember Tony Aiken for his classic funk album Unity, from the 70s – and here, he's back again – after nearly 40 years away from the studio! The album's got a style that's a lot more reggae-influenced than before – maybe not totally a reggae record, given the other influences that Tony brings to bear – but a style that's definitely Jamaican overall, especially in the rhythms! The project features a big number of guests – as you can probably guess from the images on the front cover – all given a soulful spirit by Tony's lead. Package lists no song titles at all – but there are 10 tracks total. (Soul, Reggae) CD

Dennis AlcaponeGuns Don't Argue ... CD
Trojan/Radiation Roots (Italy), 1971. New Copy ... $15.99
Guns don't argue, and neither can we – with the classic sound of this groundbreaking album from Dennis Alcapone! The record is years ahead of its time – both in the way that it takes a harder edge and more righteous vibe to the themes – but also in the way that it bubbles up with some rhythm currents that almost seem to hint at later dub – still with some elements of rocksteady at the core, but also served up in a loopier, more abstract way – which really fits the spirit of Dennis' delivery of the lyrics! Titles include "Teacher Teacher", "Alcapone Guns Don't Argune", "It Must Come", "If It Don't Work Out", "Everybody Needs Love", and "World Wide Love". CD

Gay Feet/Dub Store (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $18.99 19.99
A great showcase for the instrumental talents of Jamaican saxophonist Roland Alphonso – one of the key players who helped transform the sound of the scene in the 60s! But despite Roland's name on the front, the album's more of a group affair overall – directed by Boris Gardinier, and also featuring wicked rocksteady work from Lyn Taitt on guitar and Aubrey Adams on Hammond – both musicians who get almost as much time in the spotlight as Alphonso himself! Titles include a nice noisy take on the Booker T & The MGs tune "Hip Hug Her" – plus "Narata", "Pure Soul", "Wild & Free", "Little Nut Tree", "That's Life", "Sad Song", and "ABC Rocksteady". CD

Horace AndyGet Wise ... CD
Pressure Sounds (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
Prime 70s work from Horace Andy – recorded in this laidback, soul-drenched style that almost recalls the Kingston sound of a few years before! The setting is very earthy and up-close – a perfect placement for Andy's really unique vocals, which almost approximate some of the more interesting male soul vocalists of the east coast scene of the time – particularly those at the higher end of the spectrum. Horace lilts up and down beautifully – over grooves recorded at Channel One, Black Ark, Dynamic Sound, and Randys – on titles that include "Roots Of All Evil", "Sexy Jean", "Let Your Teardrops Fall", "Get Wise", "Today Youth", "Feel Good", "Eighty Percent Badness", and "I Don't Want To Be Outside".
