Benjamin BallI Just Keep Dancing (orig, Soul Clap edit) ... 12-inch
Cultures Of Soul, Early 80s. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99 12.98
Lots of sweet bass pedal here – a bumping bottom that sets up the groove right from the start, and continues to dominate the rhythm – while Benjamin Ball calls out the catchy hook, female singers echo his vocals, and keyboards give the whole thing a nice electro polish too! Soul Clap ... (Soul, Reggae) read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

A classic slice of Jamaican roots – and an essential record from the godlike hands of Lee Perry!

The best dressed chicken in town returns for round 2! The good doctor's follow up to that album's another scorcher, though this one's not exclusively produced by Scratch.

FrightnrsI'd Rather Go Blind/Version ... 7-inch
Daptone, 2015. New Copy ... $4.99
A great remake of this classic soul song – a tune made famous by Etta Jones and a number of others – given a great dubby approach here by the Frightnrs!

GermainPre-Release Dub ... LP
Bond Export, Early 80s. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
A dub album so mysterious, copies of the set were actually found stuffed inside the wrong record sleeves – which might well testify to the pretty stripped-down packaging of this version of the album! Yet don't judge the book by its cover – as the album's filled with well-crafted dub ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
