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

Black UhuruDub Factor ... CD
Mango/Island, 1983. New Copy ... $4.99 11.98
One of our top 10 dub albums of all time! This album bridges the gap between the the low-fi, down and dirty excursions of the 70's dub era, and the later high tech dub revolution brought on by On-U, Mad Professor and Jah Shaka. The rhythms here are all first rate, drawn mostly from their Chill Out LP with a few from Red, fueled by Sly and Robbie and a cast of regulars from the Island/Mango stable. Sly & Robbie also handle the production duties, and there's no shortage of fat grooves and unrelenting rhythms, then taken to the next level with deep space echo drops and 21st century sound effects and tape edits. Includes "Ion Storm", "Big Spliff", "Boof'N'Baff'N'Biff", "Puffed Out" and "Android Rebellion". This CD reissue's been newly remastered, with 3 additional dubs as bonus tracks: "Cool Off", "Destination Unknown" and "Fire & Brimstone". CD

Johnny ClarkeSatisfaction ... CD
Radiation Roots, 1979. New Copy ... $15.99
The soulful Johnny Clarke is in some wonderful company here – working with backing from a version of The Agrovators that features Sly & Robbie on some very modern rhythms, plus lead guitar from Chinna Smith and organ from Winston Wright! The group have a laidback, bad-stepping vibe that fits perfectly with Johnny's vocal flow – a style that has an edge, but in a way that's a bit different than some of the more righteous talents of the time – a great reminder that in the underground of the period, there was still some real magic happening away from more mainstream productions. Bunny Lee produced and arranged – and titles include "Play Fool Get Wise", "Riding For A Fall", "Midnight Cowboy", "I Love You Madly", "I Can't Explain", "Easy Skanking", and "This Heart Of Mine".
