Bob AndyLots Of Love & I (180 gram orange vinyl pressing) ... LP
High Note/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
Bob Andy's come a long way here from his earlier work with Marcia Griffiths – taking on some new rasta energy, as you might guess from the title – and singing in an even headier style than before! The set was recorded at Treasure Isle, with bad-stepping rhythms from Sly & Robbie, and a nice current of dub on the production – all of which really sets the stage for Bob's richly soulful vocals on tunes that include "Troubled Woman", "Lots Of Love & I", "Unchain Me", "Stepping Free", "Revelation", "The Ghetto Stays IN My Mind", and "You Lied".

PioneersBattle Of The Giants (180 gram orange vinyl pressing) ... LP
Trojan/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
The Pioneers have a bit more complex vocal interplay than other Jamaican vocal groups of the time – an ability to harmonize together, but break out a bit too – trading lines with increasing complexity that reflects the growing expressiveness that would flower more strongly in roots music during the 70s – turned here towards themes that are a bit less global, but even more charming in that respect. Battle Of The Giants is a great set, with heavy Leslie Kong production – and titles that include "Money Day", "Consider Me", "Driven Back", "Gorgeous & Marvelous", "Now You Are Gone", "Cherie Cherie", "Simmer Down Quashie", and "Mally Mally".

Pressure Drop (UK), 1965/1966/1968/1969/1970. New Copy 5 CDs ... $6.99 13.99
A sweet package of vintage ska from one of the originators – a set that includes five albums from Laurel Aitken, each in their original sleeves, packaged in one nicely-priced slipcover collection! The music includes rare albums from the Rio and Pama labels – most originally issued in the late 60s, and some compiled in later years as rarities collections. Albums include Ska With Laurel, Laurel Aitken Says Fire, Scandal In A Brixton Market, The High Priest Of Reggae, and Skinhead Train – the last of which is a collection of 60s singles and rarities.

✨✧ Roland AlphonsoABC Rocksteady (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Gay Feet/Doctor Bird (UK), 1968. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99
A great showcase for the instrumental talents of Jamaican saxophonist Roland Alphonso – one of the key players who helped transform the sound of the scene in the 60s! But despite Roland's name on the front, the album's more of a group affair overall – directed by Boris Gardinier, and also featuring wicked rocksteady work from Lyn Taitt on guitar and Aubrey Adams on Hammond – both musicians who get almost as much time in the spotlight as Alphonso himself! Titles include a nice noisy take on the Booker T & The MGs tune "Hip Hug Her" – plus "Narata", "Pure Soul", "Wild & Free", "Little Nut Tree", "That's Life", "Sad Song", and "ABC Rocksteady". PLUS, this 2CD version has a huge number of related bonus tracks – 43 more titles, all produced by Sonia Pottinger, many of which are on CD for the first time – tracks by The Gaylads, Melodians, Ken Boothe, Patsy, Glen & Dave, The Tennors, Junior Soul, The Conquerors, Al & The Vibrators, Roland Downer & Count Ossie, The Soul Lads, Johnny & The Attractions, Dermott Lynch, and many others.

Dennis BrownJust Dennis/Deep Down (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Trojan/Doctor Bird (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99
A pair of albums from the great Dennis Brown – issued here along with 20 bonus tracks too! First up is Just Dennis – a hell of a debut from Dennis Brown – his first album as "just Dennis", and a soulful classic that really stands out from the pack! Just the first few notes of the record will remind you that Brown was easily one of the most impressive singers of his generation – a powerfully charismatic talent who brought a whole new level of soul to reggae, and one who could also write some great material as well! Niney The Observer produced the set to perfection – with a crisp crackle that really suits Dennis well – and titles include the hits "Westbound Train", "No More Will I Roam", "Cassandra", and "Conqueror" – plus "Run Too Tuff", "Africa", "Yagga, Yagga (You'll Suffer)", and "Show Us The Way". Next is Deep Down – a great little record – the follow-up to Dennis Brown's debut on Trojan, but a record that hardly ever saw much circulation back in the day! The production is handled by Niney The Observer, and has this righteous quality that really matches Dennis' message in his music – slow-stepping, head-nodding, and always with the kind of measured patience to see things through to the end – a complete delight when topped with Brown's fantastic vocals. Titles include "So Long", "Voice Of My Father", "Tribulation", "Shame", "Say Mama Say", "God Bless My Soul", and "Open The Gate". Bonus tracks include some collaborations with Big Youth, I Roy, Dillinger, and others – and titles include "Blood Son", "Wolf & Leopard (ext)", "Take A Trip To Zion", "Here I Come", "Flat Foot Hustling", "Jah Come Here", "My Time", "Six Dead & Nineteen Go To Jail", "Give A Helping Hand", "Why Must I", "Rock With Me", and "Africa (ext)".

Errol BrownOrthodox Dub ... CD
Dub Store (Japan), 1978. Used ... $19.99
There's nothing orthodox about this 70s dub gem from Erroll Brown – as the album's an unusual set from start to finish – even in an era when so many dub records were being produced! There's an extra-raw sound to the whole thing – which might be hinted at by its cover image – and the sounds are very far from any sort of referent in vocal work in Jamaican music – with tracks that seem to exist entirely on their own, in a wave of echo, bubbling basslines, and slow-riffing guitars! Titles include "Gold Toot Style", "Black Forest Rock", "Roots Rockas", "Macka Dub", "First World Dub", "African Roots Style", and "Cold Sweat". CD

Errol Brown & The RevolutionariesDub Expression ... CD
High Note/Dub Store (Japan), 1978. Used ... $12.99
The mighty Errol Brown is at the controls in Treasure Isle – reworking some wicked rhythms played by The Revolutionaries – all with the stripped-down vibe of the best underground dub from Kingston in the 70s! Echo is heavy on the bottom-end of the sound – which makes the grooves ebb and flow in a way that's got a heck of a lot of sonic power – while some of the more isolated instruments over the top step along in a more melodic way – sometimes a bit of organ, guitar, or bubbling bass, depending on the track! The presentation is as stripped-down as the music – but at that mysterious level that only makes the record such a cool little treasure – with tracks that include "Bond Street Rock", "Ranking Marshal", "The Gun Court Dub", "Ital Stew", "Super Tracks", "Dread At The Controls", and "Ghetto Dub".

Brown SugarI'm In Love With A Dreadlocks – Brown Sugar & The Birth Of Lovers Rock 1977 to 1980 ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $18.99 22.99
The first collection we've ever seen to do justice to the Brown Sugar trio from the UK reggae scene of the late 70s – a group who do a fantastic job of merging older sweet soul styles with a new lovers' vibe, all in a mode that's completely sublime! The group's noteworthy as the starting place of Caron Wheeler, who'd later rise to great fame in Soul II Soul – and Carol Simms, who'd later rise on her own as Kofi – but even without that later legacy, the music here is completely wonderful – and is presented with detailed notes, in a set that collects all the singles the trio recorded at the time with Dennis Bovell and John "Brownie T" Kpiaye. Brown Sugar are clearly influenced by the sweeter side of American group soul style in the late 60s – and even cover a few cuts from that era – yet they also have this bad-stepping style that really offers up the strongest current of the London style of the period – the crisper crackle and rootsier production approach that was really showing a scene coming into its own. Titles include "Black Pride", "Our Reggae Music", "Hello Stranger", "You & Your Smiling Face", "Loving Dreadlocks Dub", "Confession Hurts", "Proud", "Do You Really Love Me", "Hurtin", "Run Away Love",a nd "Dreaming Of Zion".

✨✧ Cornell CampbellI Man A The Stal-A-Watt ... LP
Third World/17 North Parade, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 17.99
The title's a bit confusing, but Cornell Campbell's essentially saying that he's a stalwart – something we can completely agree with, given his strong legacy in Jamaican music – and the sublime sound of a 70s classic like this! Cornell's got a higher range than some of his contemporaries, but never in a way that makes his music sound too light or airy at all – because there's a sense of soul going on that maybe stands as a Jamaican counterpart to 70s Marvin Gaye, especially in the way that Campbell inflects his notes on the sweeter tunes on the set! Most of the production is handled by Bunny Lee or Joe Gibbs – and titles include "The Gorgon", "The Stal-A-Watt", "The Investigator", "Hypocrite", "Two Face Rasta", "Two Timer", "Boxing Around", and "Bandulu".

Jimmy Cliff & OthersHarder They Come (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Island, 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $16.99 19.99
A record that's not only a landmark in Jamaican music – but also a set that was to reggae what Curtis Mayfield's Superfly was to 70s soul! In other words, the set not only raised the bar for all the competition, it also ended up in a lot more record collections than most of them too – maybe in part because it was a soundtrack, as was Superfly – but also because it has this global power that makes it a defining album of the genre! Jimmy Cliff is obviously the mainman here, but there's help from other key players in the growing reggae scene – and titles include Jimmy's classic "You Can Get It If You Really Want", in two versions – plus two takes on "The Harder They Come", "Many Rivers To Cross", and "Sitting In Limbo" – plus "Sweet & Dandy" and "Pressure Drop" by The Maytals, "007" by Desmond Dekker, "Johnny Too Bad" by The Slicers, "Draw Your Brakes" by Scotty, and "Rivers Of Babylon" by The Melodians.
