Horace AndyIn The Light ... LP
Hungry Town/17 North Parade, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 16.98
Horace Andy's holding an acoustic guitar on the cover, but the record's got some searing electric lines in the mix – really bringing this sharp edge to the already-great rhythms behind Andy's famous vocals! Horace is one of the few cats who can sing in the higher end of the vocal register, yet still come across with a totally badass vibe – thanks partly to the righteous message in his lyrics, and the hip-tripping grooves on the tracks – which could make just about any element sound great, and only reinforce the greatness of the Horace Andy style! The album's a stone classic, and for good reason – and titles include "Leave Rasta", "Do You Love My Music", "Hey There Woman", "Government Land", "Problems", "In The Light", and "Collie Herb".

✨✧ Burning SpearMan In The Hills ... LP
Island, 1976. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $16.99
The vital 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 – with some of the pointed and righteous songs in the Burning Spear canon – committed with a steady, soulful and entirely irresistible vibe. Classic early greatness from mighty Burning Spear! Includes the great title track, plus "No More War", "People Get Ready", "Children", "Mother", "Groovy" & "Black Soul". LP, Vinyl record album

DillingerCocaine In My Brain ... CD
Trojan, 1970s/1980s. Used ... $14.99
This CD brings together the collection entitled Cocaine In My Brain (after his huge international hit) with nearly a dozen early tracks produced by Lee Perry, for a nice collection highlighting some tasty moments in the Ragnam Piza's career. The first half of the CD has some of the disco and funk influenced numbers that helped put Dillinger over worldwide, while the Scratch produced numbers have great raw, gritty feel. 20 tracks in all, including the title track, "Funky Punk", "Mickey Mouse Crab Louse", "Flat Foot Hustlin", "Crab In My Pants", "Marijuana In My Brain", "Tighten Up Skank", "Cane River Rock", "Mid East Rock", "Ensome City Skank" and "Me Na Tell A Man".

Gregory IsaacsSlum In Dub ... CD
Burning Sounds/Secret (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $10.99 16.99
Gregory Isaacs' name is on the cover – but the dub component here means that there's maybe a bit less vocals in the mix – as the album's the dub companion to Gregory's late 70s classic Cool Ruler! This set is much more focused on the excellent instrumental work – laid down by the Revolutionaries, with rhythms from Sly & Robbie, and keyboards from Ansel Collins – all mixed beautifully by a young Prince Jammy, at King Tubby's studio! The use of echo and odd electric bits at the edges is completely sublime – and titles include "Slum", "Reform Institution", "Tam Tam", "Leaving", "Public Eyes", and "Leggo Beast". CD

Kiddus IRockers – Graduation In Zion 1978 to 1980 ... LP
Dub Store (Japan), Late 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $27.99 29.98
A much-needed collection of work from singer Kiddus I – best known to global audiences for his performance at the start of the film Rockers – but an artist well worth discovering at a deeper level! Kiddus is a hell of a vocalist – one with a sharper tone than most reggae singers of the period, which fits the progressive messages of his songs – a mode that's a nice contrast to some of the warmer, mellower modes that are oddly used on other roots material of the period. The package features notes and recollections from Kiddus in both English and Japanese – and titles include "Crying Wolf", "Security In The Streets", "Graduation In Zion", "Harder", "Salvation", "Fire Burn", and "Too Fat".

✨✧ VariousStudio One Dancehall – Sir Coxsone In The Dance – The Foundation Sound ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The first great wave of dancehall from Studio One – which also marks the late wave of Jamaican innovation before the label's move to New York in the 80s! The music here is often build upon structures forged in earlier Studio One recordings – but updated with a dubbier late 70s vibe, and sometimes infused with a sense of politics that reflects the growing hardship in Jamaica, and the heady political struggle that was taking place. There's a harder edge to these tracks than reggae from a few years before – and you can definitely hear the core sounds that lead to the more bombastic dancehall that would come to play a decade later. Titles include "I Don't Know Why" by Doreen Schaeffer, "Rebel Disco" by Brentford Disco Set, "Thanks & Praise" by Devon Russell, "Noah In The Ark" by Lone Ranger, "Lend Me The Sixteen" by Johnny Osbourne, "Why Oh Why" by Ernest Wilson, "Roots & Herb Style" by Field Marshall Haye, "Lonely Lover" by Slim Smith, and "Far East" by Barry Brown. Packaged with the usual Soul Jazz flair and great set of notes! CD

✨✧ VariousStudio One Showcase – The Sound Of Studio One In The 70s ... CD
Studio One/Soul Jazz (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A brilliant showcase for the legendary talents of Kingston's Studio One – a key force in Jamaican music from the start of the 60s, and one that continued to thrive well into the 70s too! Studio One might be best remembered for their late 60s work in ska and rocksteady – but as you'll hear here, the company continued to thrive in a mix of 70s styles too – especially some of the more progressive sounds that came into play once the political scene in Jamaica really started to heat up! Production is wonderful – clear, concise, and without too much to abstract from the wonderfully soulful vocals in the lead – and as with other Soul Jazz collections of Studio One material, the track selection is superb, and the whole thing is presented with a rich amount of notes and historical information. Titles include "Stick Together" by The Wailing Souls, "Bredda Labba Labba" by Freddy McGregor, "Stay With Me" by Frankie Wilmoth, "People A Watch Me" by Johnny Osbourne, "Send Another Moses" by The Willos, "Right On Rasta" by Cedric Im Brooks & Count Ossie, "What About Me" by Myrna Hague, "Jah Dread" by Prince Jazzbo, "Time To Be Happy" by Michigan & Smiley, "Joy In The Morning" by The Gaylads & The Brendford Disco Set, and "Chuky Skank" by Dillinger.

Aggrovators & RevolutionariesGuerilla Dub (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Burning Sounds (UK), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 19.99
A dub album as powerful as the image on its cover – mixed to perfection by Ossie Hibbert, with a nearly sci-fi blend of darkness and electricity! The core tracks were laid down by the Aggrovators and Revolutionaries at King Tubby's studio in Kingston – but it really seems to be Hibbert who makes the real magic here – knowing just when to let the right sounds space out, then cut them off before they take over the groove – which leaves the whole thing able to bad-step around in a sublime blend of bass, drums, guitar, and horns! Titles include "Ethiopian Dub", "Guerilla Dub", "Swapo Dub", "Garvey Dub", "Malcolm X Dub", "Martin Luther Dub", "Paul Bogle Dub", and "PLA Dub". LP, Vinyl record album

Gladstone Anderson/Roots RadicsGladstone Anderson Sings Songs For Today & Tomorrow/Radical Dub Session ... CD
Glad Sound/DKR, Early 80s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $19.99 21.98
The legendary Jamaican keyboards and piano groover – a pivotal player in classic ska, rocksteady and reggae – divering a surprisingly wonderful vocal album in the early 80s! Being a longtime vital player by this point, we know Gladdy was wise enough that he wouldn't of done this if he didn't really have it in him, and it's honestly sweet as can be – self-produced and done with a classic touch – wit Winston Wright, Scully and Errol Holt on the session. Titles include "Brimstone And Fire", "Speak The Truth", "Thanks And Praise", "Advantage", "Mount Zion", "Mind Memory", "Let's Rap" and more. 2CD version also comes with the Roots Radics Dub Session – featuring Gladdy of course, with "Rock In Dub", "Good Times Dub", "Wiseman Dub", "Stone Dub", "Travel Dub", "Do Good Dub" and more.

Horace AndyGet Wise ... CD
Pressure Sounds (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $9.99 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".

✨✧ VariousStars Ah Shine – Tapper Zukie Productions – Hits From The Stars Label 1976 to 1988 ... CD
Kingston Sounds (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A well-done collection of work from the Stars label – the special imprint headed up by producer Tapper Zukie, as his Jamaican answer to the success of Motown! Stars never hit the big time that Motown did, but the work here is maybe equally as impressive from a reggae standpoint – well-recorded material by a tight stable of artists, with backing from a core group of the best rhythm players on the Kingston scene – in modes that take the roots generation into the digital age with the best possible approach. Titles include "Bosra" by Prince Alla, "Liberty" by Junior Ross & The Spears, "Death Before Dishonour" by Dennis Brown, "Press Along Natty" by Cornell Campbell, "Marcia" by Freddy McKay, "We A Feel It" by Alton Ellis, "Everyone Has There Work On Earth" by Rockey Dread, "Black Princess" by Linford Nugent, "Natty Dread A Weh She Want" by Horace Andy, and "Bad Boy" by The Mighty Diamonds.

✨✧ VariousStudio One Jump Up – The Birth Of A Sound – Jump-Up Jamaican R&B, Jazz, & Early Ska ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), Early 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
The early 60s roots of the Studio One sound – tight Jamaican R&B, nascent ska and killer tunes galore – on one of the greatest Soul Jazz forays into the Studio One archives in years! All of the tracks on Studio One Jump Up were recorded in the first half of the 60s, and the majority in the first couple years of the decade – and it's a wonderful blend of American rhythm & blues-influenced, though distinctly Jamaican music – it really is the birth of reggae to come. Incredible early recordings by soon-to-be Jamaican musical lynchpins including the Skatalites, formative work by Derrick Harriott, Bob Marley, Derrick Morgan, Lord Creator and more! Includes "Mr. Landlord" by Basil Gabbidon, "Wigger We Shuffle" by Derrick Morgan, "Wicked And Dreadful" by Neville Esson, "Rhythm Of The Blues" by Lord Creator, "Hip Rub" by The Jivin Juniors, "Walk All Over" by Owen Gray", "Heaven And Earth" by Don Drummond & Roland Alphonso, "Go Jimmy Go" by a very young Bob Marley & The Wailers, "The Slider" by Clue J And The Blues Blasters and more. 20 tracks in all.
