✨✧ VariousDoing Our Thing – More Soul From Jamdown 1972 to 1982 ... CD
Cree (Germany), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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.

Hopeton LewisDynamic ... LP
Dynamic (Jamaica), 1970s. Very Good ... $14.99
A nice easy rockin' slice of Jamaican soul from rock steady star Hopeton Lewis. The production is courtesy ByronLee, so it has the sort of broader appeal crossover soul influenced sound you might expect, without as much of the raw edge we look for, but a nice bit of southern R&B feel creeping in. 12 tracks in all, including "Drift Away", "Working It Down To The Bone", "Pick Yourself Up", "Show Me Some Loving", "Take My Heart" and "Baby, Baby Don't Get Hooked On Me". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a split bottom seam, some wear, and aging.)

✨✧ Tommy McCook & the SupersonicsGreater Jamaica Moonwalk Reggae (180 gram orange vinyl pressing) ... LP
Treasure Isle/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
Fantastic grooves from Tommy McCook & The Supersonics – exactly the kind of record that shows why the group were one of the hippest combos on the Kingston scene of the late 60s! Production is by Duke Reid, who keeps a nice badass vibe to the whole thing – letting bits of funk creep in, and maybe even a bit of early dub – while Tommy and the group move through a range of soulful styles that are mostly instrumental, but which also feature some nice vocal moments too! Titles include "Drink Milk", "Lock Jaw", "Moonlight Groover", "My Girl", "Funkey Funkey Reggae", "Moon Invader", "Stealing Stealing", and "Only A Smile". LP, Vinyl record album
(Orange vinyl pressing – limited to 750 copies!)

VariousStudio One DJ Party ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $29.99 34.99
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.
