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

Gay Feet/Dub Store (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $10.99 19.99
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 AndyGood Vibes (with bonus tracks) ... CD
17 North Parade (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $13.99 15.98
A classic compilation – and we can't get enough of Horace Andy's sweet falsetto keening over these chugging, fat rhythms!

✨✧ Black UhuruRed ... CD
Mango/Island, 1981. Used ... Just Sold Out!
One of our favorite Black Uhuru albums, when they'd fully matured as a group under the production of Sly & Robbie, with a tight modern reggae sound that few other groups could match from that era. Heavy, heavy grooves saddled with the trios potent lyrics and harmony vocals, including the ... read more CD

Errol BrownOrthodox Dub ... 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

Count Ossie & Mystic Revelation Of RastafariGrounation ... CD
Dub Store (Japan), 1972. New Copy 2 CDs ... $21.99 24.98
An amazing record, and one of the most spiritual, righteous sets to ever come from Jamaica in the 70s – and that's saying a heck of a lot, given that scene at the time! The vibe here is really rootsy, and almost more spiritual jazz than reggae – with lots of spare percussion from Count ... read more CD

Essential!

Nighthawk/Omnivore, 1980. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
Overlooked indie work by The Gladiators – the legendary Jamaican group who rose to huge prominence in the 70s, but who were back working on smaller labels by the time of this release!

✨✧ Eric GrantCool At The Casa Montego ... CD
Federal/Dub Store, 1960. Used ... Just Sold Out!
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
