Johnny ClarkeCreation Rebel ... LP
17 North Parade, Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $34.99 39.98
Fantastic work from Johnny Clarke – one of the younger Jamaican vocalists to emerge in the 70s – given that he started recording at a time when the music had already crossed the Atlantic and was making some big global waves – leaving it to singers like Johnny to bring the whole sound back to the roots! Clarke's got this moody, almost mysterious way of singing – yet a vibe that's every bit as soulful as some of the more straightforward vocalists of the generation before – and that moody approach makes for a perfect blend with the gritty production work of Bunny Striker Lee, which often has the bass end of the speakers blasting out as much as the higher, warmer waves of sound from Johnny. This double-length collection might be the best we've ever seen on Clarke from the classic years – and it features great notes and detail, in the top-shelf 17 North Parade style. Titles include "Enter Into His Gates With Praise", "Age Is Growing", "Peace & Love In The Ghetto", "Fire & Brimstone A Go Burn The Wicked", "African People", "King In The Arena", "Blood Dunza", "Dread A Dread", "None Shall Escape The Judgement", "Jah Jah Bless Joshua", "Commercial Locks", "Move Out Of Babylon Rastaman", "Top Ranking", and "Roots Natty Congo".

Seke Molenga & Kalo KawongoloSeke Molenga & Kalo Kawongolo ... LP
Trojan/Antarctica Starts Here, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $20.99 24.98
One of the most unusual albums to ever come from the legendary Black Ark studios of Lee Scratch Perry – a set by a duo of Congolese singers, Seke Molenga and Kalo Kawongolo – who are also not to be confused with The Congos, another group that Perry was producing at the time! The album definitely has some reggae elements, but also echoes with a sound that's much more African than most of Lee's other music of the time – a great mixing of the vocals, guitars, and percussion of Molenga and Kawongolo with some of the trippier, dubbier styles of Scratch's production – at a level that seems bent on building a musical bridge across the Atlantic! Titles include "Moto Ya Motema", "Bad Food", "African Roots", "Mengieb", and "Guipimbu Gienu". (Global Grooves, Reggae) LP, Vinyl record album

Carroll ThompsonHopelessly In Love ... CD
Trojan (UK), 1981. New Copy ... About November 5, 2021
A soulful set from Carroll Thompson – the debut from the sultry UK singer, and a set that went onto become a key classic in the lovers rock genre! Carroll has a great way of mixing Jamaican styles with a bit more of a London vibe – coming up with a criss-cross of modes that really reflects the way that reggae changed when it moved across the Atlantic – picked up by the British scene, and circulated amidst different communities in London. Thompson's approach is a perfect portrayal of this mode – as she sings sweetly with these great two-step backings that also draw plenty of energy from late 70s mellow soul – with some aspects that are almost like New Jersey soul of the generation before. Titles include "Simply In Love", "I'm So Sorry", "No You Don't Know", "Sing Me A Love Song", "Merry Go Round", and "Mr Cool". CD

VariousSoul Power 68 (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Treasure Isle/Doctor Bird (UK), 1968. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99 24.99
Soul power 1968, but Kingston-style too – served up here in a host of gems from the vaults of Jamaican producer Duke Reid! The material is from a perfect moment in Reid's career – a time when he was changing his well-crafted Treasure Isle groove from ska to rocksteady – bringing in a new wave of inspiration from American soul, similar to the work at the start of the 60s that first inspired Jamaican artists to take off in some new directions of their own! The mode here is a blend of styles you might hear on Atlantic or Stax, but set to rhythms that are much more Jamaican – sometimes with soulful vocals in the lead, sometimes working as an answer to American soul instrumental singles of the time. Titles include "Come On Little Girl" by The Melodians, "Funky Beat" by Lloyd Williams, "In The Midnight Hour" by The Silvertones, "Soul Power" by Radcliff Butler, "Music Is My Occupation" by Tommy McCook & The Supersonics, "Black Power" by Winston Wright, and "What More Can I Do" by Clive & Doreen. 2CD set features a stunning 30 bonus tracks – 18 titles of which are new to CD, 3 of which appear here for the first time – material from The Sensations, Hopeton Lewis, Lloyd Tyrell, Joya Landis, The Gladiators, Yardbrooms, Phyllis Dillon, Tommy McCook, and others. 42 tracks in all!
