Tony Aiken & FutureLiberation ... CD
Boom Shot, 2016. New Copy ... $9.99
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

Ethiopian & His All-StarsReturn Of Jack Sparrow ... CD
Nighthawk/Omnivore, 1987. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
Not a film appearance by Johnny Depp, but instead a sweet later album from Leonard "Ethiopian" Dillon – formerly the leader of the legendary Ethiopians trio from Jamaica, and working here with a top-shelf group from back in the day! The set was put together by the small Nighthawk label in the US, but it's got a surprisingly great sound overall – thanks to musical contributions from Lyn Taitt on lead guitar, Winston Wright on keyboards, and Jackie Jackson on bass – all to support Dillon's lead on the album's laidback grooves. Titles include "Slender Thread", "Straight On Rastafari", "I Need Someone", "Are You Loving Me", and "Mother's Tender Care" – plus a remake of the classic "Train To Skaville". Also includes version tracks and bonus material – 20 titles in all! CD
