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 ... (Soul, Reggae) read more CD

Guns don't argue, and neither can we – with the classic sound of this groundbreaking album from Dennis Alcapone! The record is years ahead of its time – both in the way that it takes a harder edge and more righteous vibe to the themes – but also in the way that it bubbles up with ... read more CD

A great showcase for the instrumental talents of Jamaican saxophonist Roland Alphonso – one of the key players who helped transform the sound of the scene in the 60s! But despite Roland's name on the front, the album's more of a group affair overall – directed by Boris Gardinier, and ... 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

Hungry Town/17 North Parade, 1977. New Copy ... $12.99 14.98
Horace Andy's holding an acoustic guitar on the cover, but the record's got some searing electric lines in the mix – really bringing this sharp edge to the already-great rhythms behind Andy's famous vocals!

✨✧ 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 ... read more CD

Dub Store (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $18.99 19.99
There's nothing orthodox about this 70s dub gem from Erroll Brown – as the album's an unusual set from start to finish – even in an era when so many dub records were being produced! There's an extra-raw sound to the whole thing – which might be hinted at by its cover image – ... read more CD

Third World/Radiation Roots, 1980. New Copy ... $15.99

Daptone, 2016. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!

Pressure Sounds, Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99 16.99
Extremely hypnotic dub from King Tubbys & The Agrovators – and a record with a sound that's every bit as stripped-down and laidback as you might guess from the image on the cover! The approach here gets right to the core of instrumental dub – and tunes are very stark and spare ... read more CD
