African Head ChargeMy Life In A Hole In The Ground (with download) ... LP
On-U Sound (UK), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 19.98
Seminal sounds from the On-U Sound label – and a record that perhaps 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 – and cuts include "Elastic Dance", "Stone Charge", "Hole in the Roof", and "Crocodile Shoes". LP, Vinyl record album

Cornell CampbellDance In A Greenwich Farm ... CD
Radiation Roots (Italy), 1975. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
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".

✨✧ VariousStudio One Kings ... LP
Studio One/Soul Jazz (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Soul Jazz gets the royal treatment, or should we say gives us the royal treatment! The royal court is in session with a fine, fine batch of today's sound today, another regal dip into the Studio One vaults, showcasing the top male vocal stars in Coxsone Dodd's stable! The set includes both classic cuts and some well chosen lesser known nuggets, and as you now know (or are about to find out) the Soul Jazz selectors pull together a compilation fit for a king! 17 numbers in all, including "I've Got To Make It" by Larry Marshall, "Every Tongue Shall Tell" by Horace Andy, "Well Run Dry" by Alton Ellis, 'Water More Than Flour" by Johnny Osbourne, "I Am The Ruler" by Anthony Rocky Ellis, "Pretty Looks Isn't All" by Cornell Campbell, "Please Be True" by Alexander Henry, "Them A Come" by Burning Spear, "Change Of Plan" by Joe Higgs, "Roots Natty" by Devon Russell, "Be Yourself" by Ken Boothe, "I Shall Be Released" by Freddie McGregor, "Father Will Cut You Off" by Freddie McKay, "Locust" by the Ethiopian, "One, One" by George Philip, "I Don't Want To See You Cry" by John Holt and "Won't You Come Home" by Delroy Wilson.

✨✧ VariousStudio One Scorcher – Instrumentals ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), 1960s. New Copy 3LP ... Out Of Stock
Solid!! 19 burning shots of prototypical island jams! The sounds of Studio One have been passed down from generation to generation of musicians, even being sampled by some of today's digital producers, and recut in version after version, and with their series of Studio One reissues, Soul Jazz illustrates why. Coxsonne Dodd was not only a genius producer of rhythms, but assembled some of the finest musicians not just on the island, but anywhere in the world to cut these mighty tracks, including the Skatalites "Coconut Rock", Cedric Im Brooks "Mun-Dun-Gu", Tommy McCook "Shocker's Rock", Jackie Mittoo & Ernest Ranglin "Jerico Skank", Karl Bryan & Teh Afrokats "Money Generator", Lester Sterling "Afrikaan Beat", Sound Dimension "Heavy Rock", Sugar Belly "In Cold Blood", Soul Bros "Bugaloo", Vin Gordon 'Red Blood", Pablove Black "Push Pull" and Karl Bryan & Count Ossie "Black Up".

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 Groups ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Sweet Jamaican harmony! Harmony groups form a major piece of the Jamaican music tapestry, and Soul Jazz casts their Studio One-centered spotlight on one of the finest batches of Jamaican ensemble soul around! Covering everything from the rocksteady years on up through the late roots era, the groups showcased here deliver smoothly harmonized numbers under Cosxsone Dodd's deft direction, with only a few hewing towards the more raw sound favored by some of the rootsier ensembles, but all over easy Studio One rocking grooves. 19 dynamite numbers in all, with full annotation as with other releases in this Soul Jazz series, including "Solid Foundation" by the Righteous Flames, "Things A Come Up To Bump" by the Bassies, "You Will Never Know" by the Mad Lads, "What Is It" by the Consumates, "The Struggle" by the Viceroys, "Get In The Groove" by the Heptones, "Pick Up The Pieces" by the Royals, "Jah Jah Go Before Us" by the Gladiators, "Love & Affection" by Bob Marley & The Wailers, "Down Presser International" by the Stingers, "Baby Why" by the Cables, "The Pressure Is On" by the Purpleites, "Cheating & Lying" by the Silvertones and more!

✨✧ 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.

African Head ChargeReturn Of The Crocodile – Unreleased Tracks & Version Excursions 1981 to 1986 (with download) ... LP
On-U Sound (UK), Early 80s. New Copy ... $13.99 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

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

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 AndyGet Wise ... LP
Pressure Sounds (UK), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $17.99
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".

Horace AndyGood Vibes (with bonus tracks) ... CD
17 North Parade (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... About November 10, 2017
Sweet! – 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. 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. 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, and "Mr. Bassie" & "Reggae Rhythm - It's Gone International". CD
