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

Eric GrantCool At The Casa Montego ... CD
Federal/Dub Store, 1960. New Copy ... $16.99
Not the usual sort of reggae or rocksteady you might expect from the Jamaican scene in the 60s – but instead a brilliant set of jazz work that shows the roots of so many styles to come! The work here isn't straight jazz – as in an American mode – but the group does have a sextet ... read more CD

Trojan, 1973. New Copy ... $10.99 11.99
A seminal set from vocalist John Holt – stepping out here on his own after an early stretch of greatness with The Paragons – and working as a bright star on his own, with a level of crossover power that should have made him huge on the global scene!

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

VP, Late 60s. New Copy ... $13.99 15.98

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!
