Island (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great little compilation from Aswad – issued the same year as their mighty, mighty New Chapter set! Showcase collects Aswad's early singles and documents their formative years very nicely.

Island (Japan), 1976/1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Nice 2-fer CD that collects 2 great Burning Spear records, cut as he began his career away from Studio One.

✨✧ Burning SpearMarcus Garvey ... LP
Island, 1975. Very Good (reissue)... $19.99
An absolute classic! If you can own only one reggae LP, this one's in the front running – it's as if the words crucial and conscious were created to define the sound Winston Rodney, Burning Spear & the Black Disciples capture on this landmark roots LP.

Mango/Island, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock

Jimmy CliffHigher & Higher (with bonus track) ... CD
Island (Japan), 1996. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A mid 90s comeback effort from the mighty Jimmy Cliff – not that he ever reallly left us for long – but a comeback in that it's is first in decades for Island Records, home to his most legendary records of the late 60s and 70s! It's got a handful of covers and new versions of past ... read more CD

✨✧ Jimmy CliffStruggling Man ... CD
Island/Universal (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great mid 70s work from Jimmy Cliff, who should have been an international superstar, if Island hadn't put so much of their resources and effort behind Bob Marley instead! Recorded not long after his landmark Harder They Come LP, this one's got the same soulful sound that put that album over the ... read more CD

✨✧ Jimmy Cliff & OthersHarder They Come ... CD
Island, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A landmark in Jamaican soul and one of the albums that helped break reggae onto the world stage. A nice, nice selection of early '70's reggae, mostly performed by Jimmy Cliff, but with a few equally wonderful numbers by the Maytals & Desmond Dekker, too. Includes classics like the Maytals' ... read more CD

HeptonesNight Food/Party Time ... CD
Island (Japan), 1976/1977. New Copy ... $13.99
CD set combining the classic 70s Heptones sides Night Food and Party Time, two of the band's strongest records! The first set was cut at Harry J's, and is a bit more produced than some of their earlier sides, but has some great vocal harmonies and updates of awesome Studio One rhythms, which ... read more CD

✨✧ IjahmanAre We A Warrior/Haile I Hymn ... CD
Island (Japan), 1978/1979. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
2 great lost roots albums from the underrated Ijahman Levi! At the cusp of the 80s he appeared poised to achieve the level of dominance over the Jamaican scene like Burning Spear held in the early 70s, only to leave us with these 2 monumental recordings and labor quietly for the rest of his career. ... read more CD

✨✧ Bob MarleyExodus ... LP
Island, 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of our favorite Wailers LPs – as solid a statement as Marley had made, and to our ears, the finest moment of his later career. The album features classics like "Natural Mystic", "Three Little Birds", "One Love/People Get Ready" and the excellent, driving ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Island, 1970s. Used CD & Blu Ray Audio ... $19.99

✨✧ Bob Marley & The WailersBabylon By Bus ... LP
Island, 1978. Used 2LP ... Out Of Stock
In the mold of so many large labels during the 70s, Island attempted to capitalize on Marley's popularity and the trend of the day by issuing a double live album. If the Wailers weren't such a powerful live act, this would have been totally unjustified trend hopping, but as with the earlier Live ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bob Marley & The WailersBurnin' ... LP
Island, 1973. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The second LP the Wailers cut for Island, and probably their most raw and unrelenting, both in the revolutionary message and fierce rhythms. The last set to feature the original lineup with Peter Tosh & Bunny Wailer, and with none of the extra production flourishes Blackwell would glop onto ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bob Marley & The WailersKaya ... LP
Island, 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sweet grooves from the great Bob Marley – a set cut at a time when Marley was really riding his international fame – and able to create the kind of music that reached out way more than conventional reggae!
