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".

✨✧ VariousRastafari – The Dreads Enter Babylon 1955 to 1983 (with download) ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), 1950s/1960s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Way way more than just the usual roots reggae collection – a stunning set that documents the growth of Rastafari ideals in Jamaican music – with examples that range from years before the birth of reggae, through that style's bit growth in the 70s! The set includes this very large booklet of notes and images – giving plenty of historical context for the spiritual movement, and linking it's roots to Ethiopian political freedoms of the early 20th century, which then became a huge inspiration for oppressed Jamaicans. Styles of the music vary nicely – and include pre-reggae styles, mento, and other folkloric modes – which then give way to more familiar sounds, but always with an ear for the unique, and spiritually powerful. Titles include "Zion I" by Winston & Ansell, "Ethiopia" by Lord Lebby & The Jamaican Calypsonians, "Soul Drums" by Count Ossie & Leslie Butler, "His Imperial Majesty" by Rod Taylor, "Jah Will Cut You Down" by Earth & Stone, "Haile Selassie" by Laurel Aitken, "None Shall Escape The Judgement" by Johnny Clark, "African Drums" by Bongo Herman & Jah Lloyd, "Hail The Words Of Jah" by Ashanti Roy, "Salaam" by Bongo Herman, Les & Bunny, "Narration" by Count Ossie & The Mystic Revelation Of Rastafari, and "Rasta Dreadlocks" by The Heaven Singers.

✨✧ VariousStudio One Dub Fire Special ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the most mysterious Studio One compilations we've ever heard – and one of the grooviest, too! The cuts here are all lost dub tracks from the Studio One vaults – instrumental numbers served up by the likes of Sound Dimension, Brentford All Stars, Soul Defenders, New Establishment, and other groups – but with origins that are somewhat lost to the shifting sands of time, as are the actual instrumental details of each number! Yet the tunes work together beautifully – in a moody, slow-stepping vibe that has all the best Studio One hallmarks – and which resonates strongly with the hipper 70s elements of the label – all presented here in a unified blend by Dub Specialist. Tracks include variations of numbers originally from Alton Ellis, Roland Alphonso, Dennis Brown, Ken Boothe, and others – and titles include "Cairo", "Callie Roots", "Libra Dub", "Virgo Dub", "Nairobi", "Meet 7 Million", "Darker Black", "Rockers Hop", "Dakar", and "This Race".

✨✧ VariousStudio One Radio Show ... CD
Studio One, 1977/1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An incredible document of the Kingston scene in the 70s – and one that really opens up our understanding of reggae culture at the time! The set features portions of two radio shows hosted by Winston Williams – one from 1977, one from 1978 – both complete with announcer intros and a really great blend of music – reggae cuts from the time, including a number of exclusive disco mixes, served up at just the right vibe for the audiences in Jamaica at the time. The 1977 show has a surprising current of soul – right down to the intro theme song, which is a reworking of Johnny Lytle's "Village Caller" – and both programs really open up the music in a wonderful way, especially as Williams puts the sounds in local context with some of his spoken bits – done in this very cool English-accented voice!

✨✧ VariousStudio One Soul 2 ... LP
Soul Jazz/Studio One (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Another essential batch of Studio One Soul, every bit as great as the first! 18 more astoundingly great Jamaican renditions of soul and R&B numbers from the hands of Coxsone Dodd and his extraordinary stable of artists, some deeply soulful, and others with a more rootsy, raw grain to them. All flavors of reggae get represented here, but never departing from the soul theme, with dee jay numbers and dark dubs rubbing up against straight up renditions of numbers that are unafraid to pledge their allegiance to the great originals! Tracks include "Swing Easy" by the Soul Vendors, "Choice Of Colours" by the Heptones, "People Make The World Go Round" by Hortense Ellis, "Choice Of Music (Part 2)" by Jackie Mittoo and the Brentford Disco Set, "Thinking" by Ken Boothe, "Get Out Of My Life Woman" by Tony Gregory, "Fool For Love" by Prince Jazzbo, "Fancy Pants" by Jackie Mittoo, and "Darker Block" by the Dub Specialist.

Studio One/Heartbeat, 1960s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Burning ska tracks from Coxsone Dodd's Studio One vaults, all featuring the earliest incarnation of the Wailers! Rhythms are courtesy the various Brentford Road rockers, with all the various members of the Sound Dimension and Skatalites like Ernest Ranglin, Lynn Taitt, Jackie Mittoo, Lloyd Robinson, Don Drummond, Vin Gordon, Roland Alphonso, Tommy McCook and Deadly Headly Bennett. All corners of the Wailers Studio One world get highlighted, with heavy hits, lesser known sleepers, unreleased tracks and some of the sparkling original versions of numbers that would get versioned later all making appearances, and host of great lead vocalists throughout! 18 tracks in all, including "Tell Them Lord" and "Rude Boy" by Bob Marley & The Wailers, "Pussy Galore" by Lee Perry & The Wailers, "I've Got To Go Back Home" by Bob Andy & The Wailers, "The Train Is Coming" by Ken Boothe & The Wailers, "Bless You" by Bunny Livingston & Rita Marley, "One More Chance" and "Friends & Lovers" by Rita Marley & The Soulettes & The Wailers, "I Want Justice" by Delroy Wilson & The Wailers and "A Time To Cry" by Jackie Opel & The Wailers.

Roland AlphonsoABC Rocksteady ... CD
Gay Feet/Dub Store (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $10.99 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 AndyGood Vibes (with bonus tracks) ... CD
17 North Parade (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $13.99 15.98
A classic compilation – and we can't get enough of Horace Andy's sweet falsetto keening over these chugging, fat rhythms! A tremendous set of sides Andy cut in the mid-70s, packaged together with a few of the cuts in dub versions – all from a period when Horace was really hitting new heights in his music. While Andy cut many seminal sides for Coxsonne Dodd's Studio One – this work, some of it in collaboration with the great Bunny Striker Lee, stands among his best – and also often features Horace with firm creative control. Here he reworks the Studio One classic "Skylarking" as a "Better Version" with Lee, and there's a number of pieces cut at Tubby's with the aid of Prince Jammy (who contributed a nice sound to the In the Light set, also issued by Blood & Fire), like the massive "Pure Ranking" in it's full 8+ minute 12" disco mix version. Also includes the "Dub Vibes" version of the title track, "Mr Bassie", and "Reggae Rhythm – It's Gone International". CD
