✨✧ AswadHulet (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Island (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The second record from British roots act Aswad, with the same sort of approach as their classic debut – a solid sophomore effort keeping the roots tradition alive at the twilight of the era! The group underwent a minor lineup change from their first album to this one, but at this point they'r ... read more CD

AswadShowcase (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Island (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... $13.99
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. The sound of these 6 longish tracks has all the militancy that would fall away in their later pop ... read more CD

Burning SpearMan In The Hills/Dry & Heavy ... CD
Island (Japan), 1976/1977. New Copy ... $13.99
Nice 2-fer CD that collects 2 great Burning Spear records, cut as he began his career away from Studio One. Dry & Heavy was the first full-length self-produced LP from Winston Rodney, and finds him returning to the solo vocal format, unlike the previous harmony trio setting he'd been working ... read more CD

Jimmy CliffHigher & Higher (with bonus track) ... CD
Island (Japan), 1996. New Copy ... $13.99
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 ... $13.99
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

HeptonesNight Food/Party Time ... CD
Island (Japan), 1976/1977. New Copy ... On July 1, 2015
CD two-fer combining the classic 70s Heptones sides Night Food and Party Time, two of the band's strongest albums. 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

Justin Hines & The DominoesJezebel/Just In Time ... CD
Island (Japan), 1976/1978. New Copy ... On July 1, 2015
A nice heavy platter from former Treasure Isle star Justin Hinds and his backing group the Dominos, with a double helping of rootsy goodness! Both of the albums on this set feature production by Jack Ruby and the backing of the Black Disciples band – with Robbie Shakespeare, Horsemouth ... read more CD

IjahmanAre We A Warrior/Haile I Hymn ... CD
Island (Japan), 1978/1979. New Copy ... On July 1, 2015
2 great lost roots albums from the underrated I Jah Man 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 ... read more CD

Gregory IsaacsMore Gregory/Night Nurse ... CD
Island (Japan), 1981/1982. New Copy ... On July 1, 2015
Choice early 80s material from the Cool Ruler, bundling together two great albums, which in our sightly slanted view, represent some of his best sides. Sweet and sultry lover's rock with a mad groove laid down by the Roots Radics band, and Gregory crooning away over top. Includes the classic ... read more CD

✨✧ Bob Marley & The WailersCatch A Fire ... LP
Island, 1973. Very Good ... $19.99
Marley & the Wailer's debut on Island, and though there is a bit too much of Blackwell's production afoot here, it's still a remarkable set. Not quite as slick as some of the later Island LPs, and worth it since it still features the original lineup with Peter Tosh & Bunny Wailer . ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(In the regular cover with Bob smoking a "Marley". Cover has some light wear.)

✨✧ Bob Marley & The WailersConfrontation ... LP
Island, 1983. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Later Marley on Island, not our favorite stuff, but it plays well with the tourist crowd. Granted, there are some nice moments here, so we shouldn't get too down on it. Includes "Chant Down Babylon", "Buffalo Soldier", "Mix Up, Mix Up", "Blackman Redemption" ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Bob Marley & The WailersEasy Skanking In Boston 78 ... CD
Island, 1978. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
A never-issued live performance from Bob Marley – and a much-needed addition to his classic 70s catalog! The set captures Marley in his prime – working before an enthusiastic venue, but with a sound that's as sharp as any of his studio recordings – from the rhythms right on up to ... read more CD

✨✧ Bob Marley & The WailersNatty Dread ... LP
Island, 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Essential – probably Marley's most well known work. This is his breakthrough 3rd album, just after Bunny Wailer and Peter Tosh left the group, replaced by the female harmony group the I-Threes. Not nearly as slick as some of his other Island recordings, this one was still recorded in Jamaica, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Appears to be a late 70s repress. Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a bit of light wear.)

✨✧ Bob Marley & The WailersRastaman Vibration ... LP
Island, 1976. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A later effort from Robert Nesta Marley, though nowhere near past his prime. By this point in his career a lot of purists were criticizing Marley for crossing over too far, but there is no shortage of either conscious lyric and intent, nor heavy, rootsy rhythms here. The hit was "Roots, Rock ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bob Marley & The WailersSurvival ... LP
Island, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Marley's answer record after the assassination attempt. While not as hardcore roots as our favorite LPs, we dig the heavy African influence throughout, plus there's some fairly radical politics in play here too. "Ambush The Night", "Ride Natty Ride", "One Drop" and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Missing insert/sleeve. Cover has some wear and a bit of marker.)

✨✧ Bob Marley & The WailersUprising ... LP
Island, 1980. Used ... Out Of Stock
Marley's last studio LP, this effort shows there was no letting up, either in his political stance or fiery songwriting. With the solid original rhythm section of Family Man & Carlton Barrett and the beautiful backing harmonies of the I-Three's, this set includes classic takes of "Redempti ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lee Perry & The UpsettersSuper Ape (with bonus poster) ... LP
Island/Get On Down, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The King Kong of dub records, and we're not just saying that because of the freaky deaky cover image of a super ape with a belly full of roast fish, cornbread and makka stepping on a croaking lizard with a tree in one hand and a "tree" in the other! Classic Lee Perry and as essential of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ RicoMan From Wareika (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Island (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A major outing from Rico Rodriguez – one of the great Trombonists of the pre-ska era, who continued to lead the way with his horn throughout all the periods Jamaican music would morph through, but maintained a sound rooted in jazz. The group is pretty large, sort of a Jamaican all stars, ... read more CD
