✨✧ Horace AndyIn The Light (plus In The Light Dub) ... CD
Hungry Town/17 North Parade, 1977. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
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". CD also includes the seminal In The Light Dub – one of those cases where a dub album contains all the brilliance of the original set around which it was based – yet comes across with a completely different sound altogether! The original record was focused strongly on the soulful currents of Horace Andy's voice – but the dub set is predominantly instrumental, which buries a bit of the political message in the lyrics – yet seems to paint the same sort of social pictures with the power of its sounds – a rich palette of rhythms, electronics, and effects – often with a darkness that's unspeakable in words, but incredibly powerful at a sonic level. Titles include "Dub There", "Government Dub", "Rasta Dub", "Fever Dub", "Dub The Light", "Dub Down Rome", and "I & I". CD

Alton EllisI'm Still In Love With You ... CD
Studio One/Heartbeat, 1960s. Used ... $19.99
An excellent, excellent collection of Jamaican soul from the excellent, excellent Mr Soul himself! Alton Ellis' sweet vocals grace some of the best early Studio One tracks, and this collection highlights some of the finest rocksteady and seminal early reggae numbers to be issued by Coxsone Dodd. As a bonus, many of these fine renditions of stateside classics also get versioned by Ellis' equally sweet-voiced sister Hortense, with 10 numbers by Alton and 8 numbers by Hortense in all! Includes ""I'm Still In Love With You", "Can't Get Used To Losing You", "Sitting In The Park", "Breaking Up Is Hard To Do", "Live & Learn (extended mix)", "Breakfast In Bed", "The Picture Was You", "People Make The World Go Round", "I'll Be Waiting", "Can I Change My Mind", "Secretly", "You Said It Again", "Cry Together" and "When I'm Down".

Gladstone Anderson/Roots RadicsGladstone Anderson Sings Songs For Today & Tomorrow/Radical Dub Session ... CD
Glad Sound/DKR, Early 80s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $13.99 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.

Laurel AitkenFantastic Laurel Aitken ... CD
Pressure Drop (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $8.99 13.99
Another batch of Aitken, and of all the issues by the Pressure Drop imprint, the most stylistically diverse! Like the others, this set is a reissue of a great LP, The Fantastic Laurel Aitken, which itself was a collection of singles – but having been compiled a little later than the other blazing ska sets, this one slows the tempo a shade, and includes some more rocksteady and reggae oriented grooves. And like the other sets, this one expends greatly on the original, with loads of bonus tracks, for a total of 27 numbers in all, with titles that include "Baby Please Don't Go", "Sex Machine", "Chop Chop Rock", "Can't Turn Your Back On Me", "Since You Left", "Do The Boogaloo", "Souls Of Africa", "Dancing With My Baby", "Rock Steady", "Reggae Mood", "I'll Never Love Any Girl 9The Way I Love You)", "Guilty", "The Very Best I Can", "It's Too Late", "Slow Rock", "Just A Little Bit Of Your Loving" and "Two Timing WOmen".

The Pama Years material from ska legend Laurel Aitken – tracks released between 1969 and 1971 on UK soul label Pama's reggae subsidiary Nu Beat/Newbeat – some of which were big hits for Laurel and others that have been fairly obscure and neglected for the past couple decades! 18 tracks in all: "Apollo 12", "Reggae 69", "Benwood Dick", "Don't Be Cruel", "The Best I Can", "True Love", Save The Last Dance", "Jo B", "Donkey Man", "Reggae Popcorn" and more.

Roland AlphonsoABC Rocksteady ... CD
Gay Feet/Dub Store (Japan), Mid 60s. New Copy ... On February 10, 2017
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

Gladstone Gladdy AndersonGlad Sounds (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Merritone/Dub Store (Japan), 1968. Used ... $11.99
Sweet instrumental sounds from pianist Gladdy Anderson – working here with superb backings from Lynn Taitt & The Jets – who step back a bit to let the piano take the lead on most numbers! The style is rocksteady, but a nicely laidback version of the groove, too – so that Anderson's work on the keys tinkles beautifully over the top, while Taitt underscores some of the better elements with his deeper guitar lines – all recorded with a sense of pacing and use of echo that makes the whole album nice and trippy throughout! Titles include "Intensified 68", "Chances", "If I Only Had Time", "ABC Rocksteady", "Love Me Forever", and "Ride Me Donkey". CD
