VariousDoing Our Thing – More Soul From Jamdown 1972 to 1982 ... CD
Cree (Germany), 1970s/Early 80s. Used ... $9.99
A long-overdue second volume of the Soul From Jamdown series – issued 15 years after the first one, and maybe even more incredible overall! As before, the focus here is on Jamaican music that draws very direct inspiration from American soul – sometimes as cover versions of famous tracks, sometimes as answer songs to work from the US – but all set to very groovy reggae, rocksteady, and early dancehall rhythms! The vocals are wonderful – many of the singers really take inspiration from the best years of American deep soul and sweet soul – and bring a heartbreaking vibe to the lyrics – and while the earliest years of Jamaican soul has been well-documented, these later years are more unusual territory – and beautifully covered here. The package comes with a huge amount of notes, and also includes lots of images of the original records – and titles include "Too Late" by Augustus Pablo, "Cornbread Earl & Me" by Dillinger, "Supernatural Thing" by Richard Ace, "Breezin" by Willie Lindo, "Ain't That Loving You" by Hortense Ellis, "You'll Never Find Another Love Like Mine" by John Holt, "Ain't Too Proud To Beg" by Junior Byles, "Special Request To The Manhattans" by Phillip Frazer, "Thin Line Between Love & Hate" by BB Seaton, "Do Your Thing" by Glen Adams, and "Johnny Dollar" by Dave Barker.

VariousSly & Robbie Present – Taxi Gang In Disco Mix Style 1977 to 1987 ... CD
Cree (Germany), Late 70s/1980s. Used ... $9.99
A very cool side of the Sly & Robbie legend – a series of recordings the duo made with a range of different singers – all as Jamaican-styled remakes of American soul and club tracks from the 70s! The vibe here is definitely more reggae than disco – with a groove slowed down a lot more than the speed of Studio 54 – and the pair are really coming into their own as creative talents, working on the experience they gained for years on other folks' records – which really helps create the right sort of rhythms for these grooves. As you'd guess from the dates in the title, the set stretches into the digital reggae years – which turned out to be one of the most productive periods for Sly & Robbie – and titles include "Sexual Healing" by Jimmy Riley, "Show & Tell" by Ken Boothe, "Could It Be I'm Falling In Love" by Home T-4, "Inner City Blues" by Delroy Wilson, "Break Your Promise" by Barry Biggs, "You Must Believe In Me" by Junior Tamlins Moore, "Fever" by Marcia Griffiths, and "Rainy Night In Georgia" by Tinga Stewart.

✨✧ George FaithTo Be A Lover (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Mango/Cree (Germany), 1977. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A match made in reggae heaven – the sweet vocals of the great George Faith, and the legendary production talents of Lee Scratch Perry – coming together here in a record that's overflowing with soul! The Perry production is great – never too over the top, but with just enough around the edges to keep things interesting – and to keep the record from sounding a fair bit different than more commercial or mainstream work of the time. The whole thing was recorded at the Black Ark studios, with help from The Mighty Diamonds and Meditations on backing vocals – and some nice lead guitar lines from Ernest Ranglin. Titles include an extended take on George's biggest number, "To Be A Lover (Have Mercy)" – plus sublime soul covers like "Midnight Hour/Ya Ya", "I've Got The Groove", and "Turn Back The Hands Of Time" – and smoking originals like "Opportunity", "So Fine", and "All The Love I've Got". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lancelot LayneBlow Way ... CD
Cree (Germany), 1970s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
The first-ever collection we've seen to focus on the mighty talents of Lancelot Layne – an important talent on the Trinidad scene of the 70s – and an artist who really helped forge a unique hybrid of soul at the time! The music here isn't the usual Caribbean club groove – although Layne was a big inspiration on those later sounds – and instead, the music weaves together elements of older island styles, hipper 70s jazz and funk inflections, and some of the pride and power that were burning bright during this important generation of soul music. A number of cuts have very cool percussion – which creates an earthier undercurrent than you might expect – and we can honestly say that there's no easy comparisons we can make with this music, given its unique approach! Titles include "Bringin Off", "Kaiso For Mout Band", "Song For Music", "Carnival Drum Song", "Afro Dadian", "Ubawa", "In A Man's Life", "Chant", "Get Off The Radio", and "Free South Africa". 30 tracks in all!

✨✧ VariousStudio One DJ Party ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $18.99 22.99
A really well-done collection of the many DJ talents who recorded for Studio One over the years – one that gets past the obvious hits to include a stunning array of really varied voices! As you might know, in Jamaican music, the term "DJ" refers not just to someone spinning records, but also to a vocalist rapping over a tune – a practice that began live, as DJs were talking along with their records on soundsystems – then moved into the studio, and onto records, thanks to the pioneering work of labels like Studio One! The label always had a great ear to the street, which keeps the quality level of these tracks really high, even as the 80s move in – and as always with Soul Jazz, the whole package is great – with very detailed notes that support the music even more strongly than the original records. Titles include "We A Don" by Screechie Dan, "Riddle I This" by Dennis Alcapone, "Universal Love" by Mad Roy, "Fountain On The Mountain" by Dillinger, "My Number" by Lone Ranger, "It A Fi Bun" by Kentrus, "DJ Special" by King Sporty, "Rhyming Time" by King Stitt, "Ragga Muffin" by Jim Brown, "Raindrops" by Prince Garthie, "Nanny Version Skank" by Big Joe, and "Automatic Clapping" by Jah Buzz.
