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!

Burning SpearMan In The Hills/Dry & Heavy ... CD
Island (Japan), 1976/1977. New Copy ... $13.99
Nice 2-fer CD that collects 2 great Burning Spear records, cut as he began his career away from Studio One. Dry & Heavy was the first full-length self-produced LP from Winston Rodney, and finds him returning to the solo vocal format, unlike the previous harmony trio setting he'd been working in around the time of the recording. Continuing with the same powerful roots message he laid down on his classic preceding LPs (Marcus Garvey, Social Living & Man In the Hills), and backed up by some mighty rhythms, this is some serious stuff. "Throw Down Your Arms" was the most standout track, but we like "Any River", "Black Disciples" & "It's a Long Way Around" are great, too. Man In The Hills was originally the follow up to the crucial Marcus Garvey set, and the second collaboration between Burning Spear and producer Jack Ruby. While the earlier Studio One sides are truly great, the work of the group (still a harmony vocal trio) at this point took the next step to classic status. Essential stuff, including the mighty title track, plus "No More War", "People Get Ready", "Groovy" & "Black Soul". 19 tracks in all. CD

Toots HibbertToots In Memphis ... CD
Mango, 1988. Used ... $6.99
Legendary Toots & The Maytals singer Toots Hibbert meets legendary Memphis producer Jim Dickinson – and the best session players that city has to offer! Toots was always reverent of greatest southern soul, so this effort is anything but forced. Toots tackles material by Otis Redding, Al Green, James Carr and others for on this sweet set – played with admirable restraint by a group of musicians who could really accomplish anything. 10 tracks in all: "I've Got To Remember", "Knock On Wood", "Love And Happiness", "Love Attack", "Hard To Handle", "Love The Rain", "It's A Shame", "Precious, Precious", "Freedom Train" and "See It My Way". CD

Justin Hines & The DominoesJezebel/Just In Time ... CD
Island (Japan), 1976/1978. New Copy ... On July 1, 2015
A nice heavy platter from former Treasure Isle star Justin Hinds and his backing group the Dominos, with a double helping of rootsy goodness! Both of the albums on this set feature production by Jack Ruby and the backing of the Black Disciples band – with Robbie Shakespeare, Horsemouth Wallace, Ansel Collins and others, the team that helped Burning Spear craft some of his best roots albums around the same time. Hinds had a rawer, less polished approach to his own singing, and the vocal harmonies of the Dominos followed suit, making this set stand out from the rest of the pack Island was recruiting in the mid 70s. The Black Disciples craft a nice batch of tough rhythms for a pair of great, mid-70s roots sides, maybe not as widely known as some others, but still crucial and classic! 19 tracks in all, including "Fire", "Prophecy", a nice recut of his earlier hit "Carry Go Bring Home", "Dip And Fall Back", "Natty Take Over", "What You Don't Know", "Let's Rock", "Help Your Falling Brother", "Bad Minded People", "What You Gonna Do", "One Bird In The Hand", "Groovin", "Positive Way" and "Stop The Rain".

Laurel Aitken (& Girlie)Scandal In A Brixton Market (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Pressure Drop/Pama (UK), 1969. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Another lost, but great chapter in the career of Laurel Aitken, originally issued on the Pama label, but brought back to light by the excellent Pressure Drop imprint. Aitken teams up with female foil Girlie on most of the original LP's tracks, and gets a helping hand from trombone great Rico Rodriguez on a couple too! The set's all bouncing rocksteady and early reggae, choice cuts from top to bottom and loaded up with a host of wonderful bonus material, too! 24 tracks in all, including "Scandal In A Brixton Market", "Stupid Married Man", "Tammering", "Have Mercy", "Night Cricket", "Teddy Bear", "Mr Soul", "babylon", "Stop The War In Vietnam", "Big Fight In Hell Stadsium", "Pussy Got Thirteen Life", "Blue Mink", "Moon Rock", "Cut Up Munno", "Nobody But Me", "The Best I Can", 'Reggae Popcorn" and "Pachanga" parts 1 and 2.

Laurel AitkenHigh Priest Of Reggae (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Pressure Drop/Pama (UK), 1970. Used ... $7.99
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".

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".

AswadShowcase (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Island (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... $13.99
A great little compilation from Aswad – issued the same year as their mighty, mighty New Chapter set! Showcase collects Aswad's early singles and documents their formative years very nicely. The sound of these 6 longish tracks has all the militancy that would fall away in their later pop dancehall years – very much in the vein of their great self-titled debut from the mid 70s. Includes the leftfield disco-not-disco classic 'Warrior Charge", plus "Back to Africa", "Three Babylon", "It's Not Our Wish", "Rainbow Culture" and "Babylon". CD

✨✧ VariousStudio One Rocksteady – Rocksteady, Soul, & Early Reggae At Studio One ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great early work from the legendary Studio One – and some important sounds that really show the link between Jamaican reggae and American soul! The grooves at this point draw heavily from the US soul and R&B that had been hitting Jamaican shores via radio broadcasts from up north – but they also already have a Kingston influence coming heavily into the mix – in the stepping rhythms, bubbling instrumentation, and mellow production of the cuts! The instrumentation here is wonderful – lots of special little touches on organ, tenor, bass, or drums – in that key Studio One way – and the vocals have a flow that really works well with the echoey production on most numbers too. A few tunes show some early social and political themes – and titles include "Stars" by The Eternals, "Joy In The Morning" by The Gaylads, "My Ambition" by Marcia Griffith, "Throw Me Corn" by Larry & Alvin, "Lick It Back" by Duke Morgan, "Pack Up" by The Classics, "Fancy Make Up" by John Holt, "Whisper To Me" by Cecile Campbell, "Hurting Me" by Alton Ellis, "Our Thing" by Jackie Mittoo, and "Row Fisherman Row" by Wailing Souls.
