Horace AndyFeel Good All Over – Anthology 1970-1976 ... CD
Trojan (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
Okay. . .okay, there may be a few other singers we like to hold up as our favorite (like Jimmy Cliff), but for real, Horace Andy's at the top of the heap. Maybe it's because we're from Chicago and have a soft spot for sweet falsetto a la Eugene Record or Curtis Mayfield, though we'd never claim ... read more CD

Horace AndyGet Wise ... CD
Pressure Sounds (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
Prime 70s work from Horace Andy – recorded in this laidback, soul-drenched style that almost recalls the Kingston sound of a few years before! The setting is very earthy and up-close – a perfect placement for Andy's really unique vocals, which almost approximate some of the more ... read more CD

Count OssieTales Of Mozambique (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Dynamic Sounds/Soul Jazz (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $19.99 22.99
One of the hippest sets ever issued during the roots reggae wave of the 70s – and one of the most spiritual, too! The album's got a very special acoustic vibe at the core – earthy drumming that goes back to a pan-African tradition, these beautiful acoustic basslines that link the music ... read more CD
Also available Tales Of Mozambique (with bonus tracks & download) ... LP 26.99

Dillinger Vs TrinityClash ... CD
Burning Sounds (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
A classic album in the "clash" style of the late 70s – in which two different reggae artists go head to head from track to track on a record – yet a set that also feels a lot more unified than the rest, almost as if Trinity and Dillinger support each other strongly, and only ... read more CD

EthiopiansEngine 54 ... CD
Trojan (UK), 1968. New Copy ... $7.99
A rocksteady classic from The Ethiopians – but a set that also has plenty more going on as well! The duo work here as a Jamaican counterpart to American soul groups – one of the first and best to hit the Kingston scene – but they also open themselves up to lots of other ideas in ... read more CD

Harry J All StarsLiquidator ... CD
Trojan (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $9.99
One of our favorite Trojan Records albums of all time – a sweet set of Hammond-heavy instrumentals from the Harry J All-Stars – with a great groove that links the sound of Kingston with the soul styles of Booker T & The MGs! The organ is wonderful throughout – maybe like the ... read more CD

HeptonesNight Food (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Island (UK), 1976. New Copy ... $15.99
Seminal sounds from The Heptones – and a record that really helped the older trio style of Jamaican music find a new home in the 70s roots reggae years! The vocals here are every bit as much in harmony heaven as reggae trios from a few years before – but there's also a tighter, more ... read more CD

HeptonesNight Food/Party Time ... CD
Island (Japan), 1976/1977. New Copy ... $9.99
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

Icebreakers & The Mighty DiamondsPlanet Mars Dub ... CD
Virgin/Universal (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $9.99
A Mighty Diamonds album at the core, but one that often pushes the group's vocals off to the side – to allow for plenty of dubby interplay in the instrumentation! The real stars of the set are a Compass Point lineup with drums by Sly Dunbar and horns by Tommie McCook – all mixed and ... read more CD

In CrowdMan From New Guinea ... CD
Mango (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $9.99
One of the lesser-known Jamaican acts to record for Island Records during their big reggae years of the 70s – but a great one too, and well worth discovering through this overlooked gem! The album's the group's second (of two) – and has this great laidback approach to roots – ... read more CD

Gregory IsaacsSlum In Dub ... CD
Burning Sounds/Secret (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $16.99
Gregory Isaacs' name is on the cover – but the dub component here means that there's maybe a bit less vocals in the mix – as the album's the dub companion to Gregory's late 70s classic Cool Ruler! This set is much more focused on the excellent instrumental work – laid down by the ... read more CD

Jah LifeJah Life In Dub ... CD
Deeper Knowledge, Early 80s. New Copy ... $8.99 14.98
A never-issued record from Jah Life – and one that stands with the best dub efforts from the time! The set features wicked rhythms from the Roots Radics band, recorded at Channel One – then mixed into sublime echoey territory by Scientist, with a style that's every bit as his own great ... read more CD

Cecil LloydNight In Jamaica With Cecil Lloyd (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Ken Tone/Dub Store (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $16.99 23.99
A night in Jamaica, circa 1965 – but a record that's got more than enough Latin touches to be titled A Night In Havana, too! Pianist Cecil Lloyd steps away from more familiar Jamaican styles of the time, to work with small combo backing that's much more in the mode of the best Latin pianists ... read more CD

Jackie MittooJackie Mittoo – The Keyboard King At Studio One ... CD
Universal Sound/Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $19.99
Killer funky organ – and 100% Dynamite! Jackie Mittoo is one of the all-time great organists – as essential to Jamaica as Booker T was to Memphis, or Jimmy McGriff was to New York. He's legendary these days as the player who completely transformed the Hammond sound with his unique ... read more CD

Pablo MosesSong/Pave The Way ... CD
Mango (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $13.99
A wonderful pair of roots record from the great Pablo Moses – who came on the scene a little too late for his own good, as he came up during an era when the focus was beginning to shift away from roots and more towards the dancehall – but regardless of shifting trends, the man is a ... read more CD

Lee Perry & OthersMr Perry I Presume ... CD
Pressure Sounds (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
A wealth of unreleased tracks and unreleased mixes from the studios of the mighty Lee Scratch Perry – material that was mostly recorded during a very fruitful time in the mid 70s, when Lee was turning out a fair bit of tracks that were only issued on one-off dub plates, to be spun by only the ... read more CD

PioneersLong Shot ... CD
Trojan (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $8.99
An early gem from The Pioneers, and one of the first records on the Trojan label too – the kind of head-nodding, late rocksteady sounds that made the imprint a key bridge between the scenes in Kingston and London at the end of the 60s! The Pioneers have a bit more complex vocal interplay ... read more CD
