Dennis BrownMoney In My Pocket – The Best Of Dennis Brown ... CD
Trojan (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
Tremendous work from the great Dennis Brown – easily one of the best singers ever to emerge from the Jamaican scene of the 70s – and an artist whose range of expression continued to leave us breathless! Brown's almost more of a soul singer than a typical reggae vocalist – although the styles here are definitely the Kingston-bred modes that worked best with his approach – and if the world were a better place, Dennis might have hit some of the global fame of some of his bigger contemporaries on the 70s scene. Yet it's also that lack of fame that also makes this music so great – a bit more unusual and not nearly as overplayed in college dorm rooms over the generations! Titles include two different versions of the classic "Money In My Pocket", and the cuts "A True", "Wild Fire", "Have You Ever", "Your Man", "Lips Of Wine", "Cheater", "Silhouettes", "Black Magic Woman", "Revolution", "How Can I Leave You", "Sitting & Watching", "The Exit", "Girl I've Got A Date", "Hold On To What You've Got", "Wolf & Leopards", and "Ghetto Girl". 40 tracks in all!

Sam Carty/Lee Perry & The UpsettersBird In The Hand (alternate Jamaican mix)/Happy Roots/Upsetting Rhythm # 2 (10 inch EP) ... LP
Rockashacka (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $19.99
A replica of a disco 10" EP from the late 70s Jamaican scene – but one that's got a much deeper range of grooves! Sam Carty moves in a slow, righteous style on this alternate version of "Bird In The Hand" – very head-noddy, and with Sam's unique vocals really stepping up and down this eerie range! "Happy Roots" is a beautifully spare cut from The Upsetters – skittishly snapping drums breaking out of the echo – while a bassline takes up most of the melody, and slight piano notes punctuate the groove! "Upsetting Rhythm" is a great cooker from Lee Scratch Perry – a dubby instrumental with this bassline that steps up and down the groove, while percolating beats move forward with an echoey sound, and some slight variations create the real melody of the tune!

Laurel AitkenHigh Priest Of Reggae (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Pressure Drop/Pama (UK), 1970. Used ... $3.99
Another disc of pure West Indian ex-pat delights from the Pressure Drop imprint! Like the previous releases on te label, this set showcases Laurel Aitken, reissuing his excellent 1970 effort for the Pama label, and then loading the set down with a mountain of equally great bonus material! The original issue of High Priest Of Reggae caught Aitken transitioning from the Rocksteady scene he dominated so well to the newer reggae vibe of the era, and as the title indicates, taking command of the new sound quite well! The original version of this album was a collection of great singles issued on the Nu Beat and Pama labels, and the bonus material here continues in that vein, for a total of 26 dynamite numbers! Titles include "Jesse James", "Mr Popcorn", "I Got To Have Your Love", "Shoo Be Shoo Be", "Save The Last Dance", "Reggae 69", "Donkey Man", "Blues Dance", "Lawd Doctor", "Everybody Sufferin'", "Pussy Price (Gone Up)", "Gimme Back Me Dollar", "Skinhead Train", 'Skinhead Invasion (aka Apollo 12)", and "Bendwood Dick".

Bob Andy & Marcia GriffithsYoung Gifted And Black ... CD
Trojan (UK), 1970. New Copy ... $13.99
An incredible duo, and one who look more like an American soul team on the front cover – and manage to deliver a similar vibe in the grooves! The style is definitely reggae, but as you'd guess from the Nina Simone cover in the title track, Bob Andy and Marcia Griffiths are also reaching out for something bigger, too – really bringing a level of sophistication to their music that moves beyond the usual – an evolution past rocksteady, but also not in the same direction as other reggae acts of the time. Harry J produced, and gets an international flavor just right for the music – and titles include "Young Gifted & Black", "Private Number", "It's A Rocking Good Way", "We've Got To Get Ourselves Together", "United We Stand", "Ain't Nothing Like The Real Thing", "Put A Little Love In Your Heart", and "Keep The Customer Satisfied".

Horace AndyGet Wise ... LP
Pressure Sounds (UK), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 17.98
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".

✨✧ VariousJustice Dub – Rare Dubs From Justice Records 1975 to 1977 ... CD
Jamaican Recordings (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Very dubby dubs from the legendary Justice Records – tracks that are deeper, darker, and moodier than most mainstream iterations of the format at the time – that best take on music from dirt, served up with more than enough echo to send the instrumentation and vocals into some very abstract spaces! Musicians include Chinna smith on guitar, Ossie Hibbert on organ, Sly Dunbar on drums, and Robbie Shakespeare on bass – and dubs are based around tunes by Johnny Clarke, Horace Andy, Cornell Campbell, and others – with titles that include "A Version Of Class", "Jah Jah Dub", "Forward Dub", "Natty No Lie Version", "Don't Try To Dub 1", "A Thankful Dub", "A Confusion Version", and "Collie Version".
