✨✧ 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

Calvin Bubbles CameronWareika Hill Sounds – Coconut Head Version/Joseph C/Tears In Exile/They Say ... 12-inch
Honest Jons (UK), 2006. Near Mint- (pic cover)... $3.99
Another dynamite single in the Wareika Hill Sounds series from Honest Jon's! Like the last single from trombonist Calvin Bubbles Cameron, this batch if numbers is very much in the vein of the fantastic Light Of Saba set, or some of the Count Ossie & The Mystic Revelation Of Rastafari material. As you might hope, the tracks chug along on massive basslines over rootsy Nyabinghi drumming, with deep horn melodies over top. 3 great instrumental tracks, "Coconut Head Version", "Joseph C" and "Tears In Exile" plus the vocal cut "They Say". 12-inch, Vinyl record

Chosen FewChosen Few In Miami ... CD
Trojan (UK), 1975. Used ... $14.99
Legendary soul from The Chosen Few – a group who were as much a 70s soul outfit as they were a reggae group! This album's the group's greatest – recorded in Miami with classic TK funky production from King Sporty, who also seems to be backing them up on most of the set. There's certainly a reggae feel to the album at times, but the group's harmonies are much more in an American soul vein – and Sporty's super-dope backings use plenty of wah-wah guitar, electric keys, and that burning, bubbling Miami soul groove that made so many of the TK albums from the time so great! Titles include the stone funky classic "Funky Buttercup", plus "Wandering", "Candy I'm So Doggone Mixed Up", "Why Can't We Live", "Drift Away", "I Am A Man", and "Hit Me With Music". Plus, the CD features an extra 13 bonus tracks that are worth the price of admission alone – all tight groovers from King Sporty and Miami associates, done in a really wicked style that's even better than the original album! Titles include "Black Foxy Woman", "Self Destruct", "Dancing Mood", "Music Maker", "Sun Will Shine", "All Things Change", and "I'm Going Down For The Last Time". CD

Greensleeves/K (UK), 1977. Used ... $12.99
In a perfect world, this album would need no introduction from us. Granted, most of you out there are hip to this, but for those that aren't, let the good Doctor and Scratch Perry get you open on this classic, classic side of funky Black Ark reggae with the heavy murky Perry touch and some mad Dee Jay stylings from the best dressed chicken in town. 14 cuts, including the awesome title track, plus "Just The Other Day", "Gimme Mi Gun", "I Killed The Barber", "Unitone Skank", "Can't Conquer Natty Dreadlocks", "Ride On", "Ital Galore" and "Tribute To The Duke".

Itals/YellowmanIn A Dis Ya Time/Operation Eradication/Harbour View Rock (inst) ... 12-inch
VP, Early 80s/Late 80s. New Copy ... $6.99
A lengendary, melodic rootsy original number by Itals – with a masterful riddim used to brilliant effect by Yellowman on the flip! "In A Dis Ya Time" by Itals is a killer tune with achingly soulful vocals, and rhythm that's taking to a deeper level by unforgettable little bit of piano in the opening seconds. Beautiful stuff – and it makes for a choice backdrop for Yellowman on the classic "Operation Eradication". This great 12" also includes the "Harbour Vew Rock" instrumental as a closer. 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Horace AndyFeel Good All Over – Anthology 1970-1976 ... CD
Trojan (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2CD ... $13.99
Okay. . .okay, there may be a few other singers we like to hold up as our favorite (like Jimmy Cliff), but for real, Horace Andy's at the top of the heap. Maybe it's because we're from Chicago and have a soft spot for sweet falsetto a la Eugene Record or Curtis Mayfield, though we'd never claim Andy hasn't got his own thing going on. In any case, his sweet soulful vocals bless a lot of wonderful tracks on this 2CD anthology of his earlier years . You get awhopping 46 tracks on this 2CD compilation focusing on 1970-1976, produced by Phil Pratt, Bunny Lee and others. Includes "I Feel Good All Over", "Lonely Woman", "You Are My Angel", "Ain't No Sunshine", "Rain From The Skys", "Dream Lover", "Riding For A Fall", "Can I Change Your Mind", "My Guiding Star", "Psalm 68", "The Love Of A Woman", "Nice And Easy", "Get Wise", "True Love Shines Bright" and many more.

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".

✨✧ VariousStudio One Dub ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Another round of Studio One butter from the folks at Soul Jazz! By this point you're well informed about the status of Coxsone Dodd's Studio One operation as the cornerstone of so much Jamaican music, and Soul Jazz has approached the catalog from just about every angle, covering nearly all the bases before landing here on this dub set. The sly Island grooves are stripped down to their bare essentials, then given a tasteful bit of dubby gloss at the hands of Sylvan Morris, for a massive collection that'll rule your stereo like Studio One rocked the sound systems back in the day. 17 tracks in all, wrapped in a nice package that includes interviews with Morris and Dodd, and fully annotated as to which numbers the rhythms were originally cut as the backing for. Includes "Bionic Dub", "Sky Rhythm", 'Taurus Dub 2", "Hooligan", "Dub Rock", "Hi Fashion Dub", In Cold Blood Version" and "Feel The Dub". 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.

✨✧ VariousSugar & Spice – 14 Studio One Rocksteady Sure Shots ... CD
Studio One/Rockashacka (Japan), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Some of the first great sounds to come from the legendary Studio One Records – an assortment of early rocksteady singles, including a fair bit of rare gems we've never heard before! These rocksteady tracks are the precursor to later reggae work from Jamaica – and show a strong influence from American soul and R&B, especially on the vocals – mixed with more of the slow-loping grooves that would later explode to global prominence in the 70s. The production style is great – very spare and laidback – almost at the same level as American soul indie labels of the time, which makes for an especially great focus on the vocals, especially on the collection's good number of harmony tracks. Titles include "Soulful Music" by The Invadors, "Sugar & Spice" by The Viceroys, "Happy Organ" by Soul Vendors, "I Make A Woman" by The Kingstonians, "Mama Didn't Know" by The Termites, "You're Gonna Lose" by The Octaves, "Reel Up" by Bumps Orkley, and "Reel Up" by The Wigglers.
