Dennis BrownMoney In My Pocket – The Best Of Dennis Brown ... CD
Trojan (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $11.99
Tremendous work from the great Dennis Brown – easily one of the best singers ever to emerge from the Jamaican scene of the 70s – and an artist whose range of expression continued to leave us breathless! Brown's almost more of a soul singer than a typical reggae vocalist – although the styles here are definitely the Kingston-bred modes that worked best with his approach – and if the world were a better place, Dennis might have hit some of the global fame of some of his bigger contemporaries on the 70s scene. Yet it's also that lack of fame that also makes this music so great – a bit more unusual and not nearly as overplayed in college dorm rooms over the generations! Titles include two different versions of the classic "Money In My Pocket", and the cuts "A True", "Wild Fire", "Have You Ever", "Your Man", "Lips Of Wine", "Cheater", "Silhouettes", "Black Magic Woman", "Revolution", "How Can I Leave You", "Sitting & Watching", "The Exit", "Girl I've Got A Date", "Hold On To What You've Got", "Wolf & Leopards", and "Ghetto Girl". 40 tracks in all!

Capital LettersVinyard (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Greensleeves, 1982. New Copy ... $12.99 14.98
A pretty wonderful record by underrated UK reggae group Capital Letters – and a rare one, too – recorded after their classic Headline News, and largely overlooked for all these years, despite carrying the rootsy torch very strongly for the group! The soulful vocals and roosty rhythms hold up tremendously well, and if there was a relatively large number of bands working in a similar mode in the late 70s and early 80s that made it difficult for them to stand out at this relatively late point, they sure sound fresh all these years later! Includes "Muss Muss", "Murdering Style", "No Jobs", Why", Vinyard", "How Far", "Baggwolf", "Old, Old Owl", "Africa Bound", "Fi Wi Parents". This great 2015 CD version from Greensleeves has 7 bonus tracks – including a trio of John Peel BBC Radio Session recordings, and 4 tracks from Headline News sessions, including "Oh Politician", "How Far Can A Man Run", "Smoking My Ganja", "Fire" and more.

Also available Vinyard ... LP 13.99
