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 Brown & The RevolutionariesDub Expression ... CD
High Note/Dub Store (Japan), 1978. Used ... $9.99
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".
