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!

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".

Mango, 1988. Used ... $3.99
Legendary Toots & The Maytals singer Toots Hibbert meets legendary Memphis producer Jim Dickinson – and the best session players that city has to offer!

✨✧ VariousCoxone's Music – First Recordings Of Sir Coxone The Downbeat 1960 to 1963 – Part 2 ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), Early 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
An incredible set of music – the roots of so many sounds to come in Jamaica, all pulled from the early pre-Studio One recordings of the legendary Clement Dodd! The music here is much more strongly tied to American styles – and in fact, some cuts could easily pass for soul and R&B – but other cuts show a very strong island influence early on, with roots of some other West Indian sounds filtering down to groove that's already coalescing into the classic sound of Kingston! We've loved Dodd's productions for many years – but this set is still a real ear-opener for us, given the range of material that we'd never heard before – and the richly detailed notes from Soul Jazz, which tell the tale of the brilliant birth of Jamaican music that would shape the rest of the world for generations to come. Part 2 of the vinyl set includes the titles "Independent Blues" by Basil Gabbidon, "Sugar Plum" by Owen & Willie, "Just Cool" by Roland Alphonso & Carol McLaughlin, "I Do" by Neville Esson, "Sit & Cry" by Owen & Millie, "Grooving With The Beat" by Cecil Lloyd, "That Man Is Back" by Don Drummond & The City Slickers, "Salt Lane Shuffle" by Clue J & His Blues Busters, "Over The River" by Jiving Juniors, and "Rock A Man Soul" by The Mellow Cats, Count Ossie, and The Warrickas. 22 tracks in all!

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.

✨✧ VariousTighten Up – Vol 2 (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Trojan (UK), 1960s/1970s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A really classic compilation from Trojan Records – and an album in their catalog that's arguably every bit as important as their single-artist sets! The Tighten Up series quickly stood out from the rest of the nascent reggae pack – to show the care and quality of Trojan's releases, and its groundbreaking way of crossing the Atlantic to bridge both the Kingston and London scenes with their inventive work and top-shelf choices! Titles include "Long Shot Kick De Bucket" by the Pioneers, "Fire Corner" by King Stitt, "Reggae In Your Jeggae" by Dandy, "Live Injection" by the Upsetters,"John Jones" by Rudy Mills, "Come Into My Parlour" by The Bleechers, "Them A Laugh & A Ki Ki" by The Soul Mates, and "Fattie Fattie" by Clancy Eccles. This version features lots of bonus tracks too! CD

✨✧ Tony Aiken & FutureLiberation ... CD
Boom Shot, 2016. New Copy ... $14.99
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

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 December 9, 2016
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

✨✧ Bob AndyBob Andy's Songbook ... CD
Studio One, Early 70s. Used ... $19.99
Laidback, bubbling, and mighty nice sounds from Bob Andy – early reggae magic with a definite Kingston sort of groove! There's a great mix of modes going on here – and it's great to hear work like this from the days when the genre was just feeling its way – trying out new rhythms, fresh instrumental elements, and sweet lyrical twists – all in pursuit of the kind of groove that would live on for years! Bob's got a subtle sort of poetry in his music – as you'll hear on cuts like "Desperate Lover", "Life Could Be A Symphony", "I've Got To Go Back Home", "Going Home", "Feeling Soul", and "Crime Don't Pay". CD
