Trojan/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99 26.98
One of the tightest, deepest albums ever from Jamaican singer John Holt – even if it has a slightly strange history, due to repackagings and retitling over the years!

Get On Down, 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $16.99 20.98

Island, 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $36.99 38.99
One of the sharpest, most righteous albums from Bob Marley – in case you couldn't guess from the title, which is his response to a recent assassination attempt!

Musical BreedSave The Little Children ... LP
Dig This Way (Italy), 1989. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99

Island/Get On Down, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
The King Kong of dub records, and we're not just saying that because of the freaky deaky cover image of a super ape with a belly full of roast fish, cornbread and makka stepping on a croaking lizard with a tree in one hand and a "tree" in the other!

Federal/Dub Store (Japan), 1964. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 24.98
One of the best jazz albums we've ever heard from legendary guitarist Ernest Ranglin – recorded quite early in his career for the tiny Federal label, and done with a fire that's missing from some of his other later records!

Jimmy RileyRydim Driven (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Taxi/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99 28.98

Sea LionsFree The People ... LP
Jet (Austria), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
An unusual album from the West African scene of the 70s – a set that brings together that area's styles with touches of reggae and maybe a slight current of soul – all of which makes for a very distinct approach to rhythm, which is also echoed in the vocals and instrumentation!

Mango/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
It's the early 80s, but Toots Hibbert still has lots of older rocksteady modes in his music – maybe warmed up a bit by some of the wider reach that was allowed by the Island Records placement of albums like this!

Parlophone/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99 30.98
A big crossover moment for Peter Tosh – a set that was issued on the Rolling Stones own label, with a bit of help from Keith and Mick themselves!

UniquesAbsolutely The Uniques ... LP
Trojan/Antarctica Starts Here, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $20.99 24.98
Bad-stepping sounds from The Uniques – a really hip Jamaican vocal group, and one who sing with an edge that's maybe even sharper than some of their contemporaries!
