Tony Aiken & FutureLiberation ... CD
Boom Shot, 2016. New Copy ... $14.99
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

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

Fresh dubs of rare tracks by Dennis Bovell – all redone recently, but with a vibe that's right up there with the best of classic Kingston!

Leslie Butler Plus 3We've Only Just Begun (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Federal/Dub Store (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
A sweet piano album with a very groovy feel – one cut by Jamaican pianist Leslie Butler, but in a mode that's got this free-floating approach to jazz! The album features a small group – just Butler's quartet, with flute and tenor from Carlton Samuels – but there's this slightly ... (Jazz, Reggae) read more CD

FrightnrsNothing More To Say ... CD
Daptone, 2016. New Copy ... $12.99 14.98
The Frightnrs have plenty more to say here – and they say it in a really sharp-edged approximation of older rocksteady modes!

Eric GrantCool At The Casa Montego ... CD
Federal/Dub Store, 1960. New Copy ... $11.99 18.98
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

Crystal/Dub Store (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... $9.99 15.99
A Jamaican soul classic from Derrick Harriot – and a set that really points the way towards reggae sounds to come in the 70s!

Joe HiggsLife Of Contradiction ... CD
Pressure Sounds (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98

Elevation/Pressure Sounds (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
One of the best records ever by Joe Higgs!

Studio One, 1970. New Copy ... $14.99 15.99
The album may not have been much of a Money Maker for Studio One Records – given that it's one of the rarest in their catalog – but it stands as a key illustration of the label's genius, and just how far away they were from most of their contemporaries! The set's a bit of a split ... read more CD
Also available Money Maker (with bonus download) ... LP 20.99

One of the sweetest voices in Jamaican music during the 70s – served up here in a mellow-stepping set of classics that Pat Kelly recorded with producer Bunny Lee! Pat's clearly got a strong influence from American sweet soul, but also comes across at a level that's maybe a bit more righteous ... read more CD

Pat KellyLonely Man ... CD
Burning Sounds (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
Hard to imagine Pat Kelly being a lonely man at all – given how great his vocals are on this set! Pat's almost as much a soul singer as he is a reggae one – bringing an older style of Jamaican soul into play with hipper 70s rhythms – all in a mode that's part lovers rock, but ... read more CD
