Gladstone Gladdy AndersonGlad Sounds ... LP
Merritone/Dub Store (Japan), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 26.99
Sweet instrumental sounds from pianist Gladdy Anderson – working here with superb backings from Lynn Taitt & The Jets – who step back a bit to let the piano take the lead on most numbers! The style is rocksteady, but a nicely laidback version of the groove, too – so that ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Capital LettersVinyard ... LP
Greensleeves, 1982. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99 13.98
A pretty wonderful record by underrated UK reggae group Capital Letters – and a rare one, too – recorded after their classic Headline News, and largely overlooked for all these years, despite carrying the rootsy torch very strongly for the group! The soulful vocals and roosty rhythms ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CongosCongo Ashanti ... LP
VP, 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $7.99 11.98
A sweet 70s classic from the Congos – billed here as just Congo on the cover, but working with that warm trio groove that made them so great in the first place! The instrumentation is smooth, without ever being uptight – nice undercurrents of soul that bubble in the mix, and work well ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

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

Robert FfrenchBlack Solidarity Presents Mr Babylon – Killer Cuts From Jamaica's Legendary Label ... LP
Black Solidarity (UK), Early 80s. New Copy ... $11.99
Robert Ffrench may not be the biggest name in Jamaican music, but he really stands out here on a host of rare cuts for the Black Solidarity label – all done in a mix of late roots and early dancehall styles! Ffrench has this very laidback, soulful sound that's really wonderful – a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Marcia GriffithsPlay Me Sweet & Nice (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Trojan (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $9.99 14.99
The first solo set from Jamaica's first lady of song, who had a storied career long before this set dropped, both at Studio One and as one half of the dynamic duo of Bob & Marcia. Pure soulful sweetness meets easy rocking niceness on this fab set of lover's rock produced by Lloyd Charmers, and ... read more CD

Jerry HarrisI'm For You – I'm For Me ... CD
Wackie's/Deeper Knowledge, 1982. New Copy ... $8.99
One of the hippest records on the early 80s run from Wackie's – a righteous set that's got plenty of bass stepping at the bottom, and lots of weird instrumental touches on the top! The album's got a head-nodding sort of spirit – very relaxed, but never in a sloppy way – with a ... 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/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

Island (Japan), 1978/1979. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
2 great lost roots albums from the underrated Ijahman Levi! At the cusp of the 80s he appeared poised to achieve the level of dominance over the Jamaican scene like Burning Spear held in the early 70s, only to leave us with these 2 monumental recordings and labor quietly for the rest of his career. ... 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

InturnsConsider Yourself ... LP
Pressure Sounds (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $13.99 19.98
Soulful harmonies-laded Jamaican music from The Inturns – who also recorded as The Viceroys and with other monikers from the mid 60s onward – and are really in peak form here in the later 70s! It's beautiful stuff, with rhythms that balance a rawer grit with a lighter touch – laid ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

VP, Early 80s/Late 80s. New Copy ... $2.99 6.98
A lengendary, melodic rootsy original number by Itals – with a masterful riddim used to brilliant effect by Yellowman on the flip! "In A Dis Ya Time" by Itals is a killer tune with achingly soulful vocals, and rhythm that's taking to a deeper level by unforgettable little bit of ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

Kiddus IRockers – Graduation In Zion 1978 to 1980 ... CD
Dub Store (Japan), Late 70s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A much-needed collection of work from singer Kiddus I – best known to global audiences for his performance at the start of the film Rockers – but an artist well worth discovering at a deeper level! Kiddus is a hell of a vocalist – one with a sharper tone than most reggae singers ... read more CD
