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!

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

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!

Barry BrownI'm Still Waiting ... CD
Radiation Roots (Italy), 1983. New Copy ... $15.99
A soulful singer from the dub generation – one who's not entirely a lovers rock vocalist, although he can work that territory too – but also an artist with a nicely laidback vibe that really sinks down in the grooves – as you'll hear from this set of early 80s tracks! Some of the ... read more 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

✨✧ DillingerAnswer Me Question ... CD
Radiation Roots (Italy), 1977. New Copy ... $15.99
Not the Dillinger you might know from the later global fame of his "Cocaine" hit, but a singer who's got a much earthier presence here overall – set to nicely-tripping cuts arranged and produced by Bunny Lee! The music is a laidback mix of roots rhythms and toasting – served ... 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!

Caroline (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99

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

One of the best records ever by Joe Higgs!

Im & Dave/Jackie Mittoo/Lloyd WilliamsMoney Maker ... CD
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

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

Stones Throw, 2016. New Copy 2CD ... $8.99 13.98
Tippa Lee's a Jamaican talent from the old school, one whose biggest fame was in the 80s – but he steps out here in a great setting that's maybe even more retro than his original work – served up in a roots reggae mode that feels like some lost Kingston classic from the 70s! The lyrics ... read more CD
