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".

Desmond Dekker & The Aces007 Shanty Town (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Trojan/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
The legendary debut LP from Desmond Dekker & The Aces – trailblazing recordings that are masterfully laid the groundwork for the international ska scene, popularizing the rude boy style and paving the way for coming reggae phenomenon that was still years down the road! Desmond Dekker's impeccable voice was always so strongly rooted on earlier soul, both Jamaican and global, and the tight rhythms under it laid down by the appropriately-named Aces is aces indeed. Includes the classic title track, "Rude Boy Train" and "Rudy Got Soul", "You've Got Your Troubles", "Keep A Cool Head", "Mother Long Tongue", "Personal Possession", "Unity" and more.

Mikey DreadDread At The Controls (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Trojan/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
A standout classic from Mikey Dread – a set recorded at the end of the 70s, when influences of reggae and dub were flowing out towards other genres and artists too – a moment that only saw studio giants like Mikey further refining their craft, to set their records apart from the rest! There's definitely some dubby currents here, but most of the focus is on the vocals and toasting of Dread – often delivered over nicely bubbling rhythms with help from Sly & Robbie, plus Augustus Pablo on electric piano, Chinna Smith on guitar, and Ansel Collins on organ. Titles include "King In the Ring", "Voice Of Jah", "Dread Combination", and "Everybody Needs A Proper Education". LP, Vinyl record album

HeptonesNight Food (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Island/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 25.98
Seminal sounds from The Heptones – and a record that really helped the older trio style of Jamaican music find a new home in the 70s roots reggae years! The vocals here are every bit as much in harmony heaven as reggae trios from a few years before – but there's also a tighter, more righteous quality to the music that really makes the record a classic – with stunning lead vocals from Leroy Sibbles, fused tightly with the voices of Earl Morgan and Barry Llewellyn, in this style that's smoothly soulful, but still has a nicely edgey undercurrent too. The record was cut at Harry J's, with production that really steps past earlier Heptones work – and titles include "Country Boy", "Book Of Rules", "Deceivers", "In The Groove", "Love Won't Come Easy", "Fatty Fatty", and "Mama Say".
