✨✧ SkatalitesSkatalite (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Treasure Isle/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A seminal record in the transition from ska to rocksteady – and one of the key calling cards of The Skatalites – a group who were already moving well past their name! The lineup is classic – Don Drummond on trombone, Tommy McCook and Roland Alfonso on saxes, and a bit of vocal help from Justin Hinds & The Dominoes – all working together in a seamless blend that forever set a standard for this late 60s generation! The titles include "Yard Broom", "Carry-Go-Bring-Come", "Twelve Minutes To Go", "Magic", "Strolling In", "Dan-De-Lion", "Apanga", "Eastern Standard Time", "Musical Store Room", and "River Bank" – plus the cut "Rough & Tough" with Stranger Cole and "When You Call My Name" with Stranger & Patsy. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousCan't Stop The Dread (with bonus tracks) ... CD
High Note/Doctor Bird (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Deep Jamaican sounds from the 70s – all work produced by the legendary Sonia Pottinger, and which shows that her talents for roots music were every bit as great as her work with earlier styles too! With Pottinger, the key is almost less what she does in the studio than what she does with her ear – as her ability to identify key talent at the right moment is something that really graces most of her recordings – definitely the case here, in an overstuffed 2CD set that features rare singles from the High Note label, most appearing on CD for the first time ever, 8 of which are previously unissued! As with other releases on the Doctor Bird label, the choice of cuts are as great as the overall presentation – which includes very detailed notes – to support a set list of 35 tracks that includes "Winey Winey (12" version)" by The Kingstonians, "King Of Kings" by Mind Body & Soul, "Babylon A Run Come" by The Mellows, "Sufferer's Child" by Delroy Denton & The Silvertones, "Lonesome I" by The Roots Defenders, "Trouble & Strife" by The Africans, "Whole Lot Of Feeling (12" version)" by Justin Hinds & The Dominoes, "See It Deh (12" version)" by Enos McLeod, "World World" by Joseph Burke & Tribute, and "Love & Inity" by Ras Miller.

✨✧ VariousTrojan Story (3CD set) ... CD
Trojan (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 3CD ... $31.99 32.99
A huge collection of work from the legendary Trojan Records label – the crucial British imprint who helped bring the sounds of Jamaica to the London scene, then helped encourage a lot of new English recordings as well! Trojan was more than a label, it was a key cultural conduit back in the day – as important to musical migrations as those of its customers' own – as you'll hear in this massive collection of tracks from the label's glory days! The set is much nicer than just a "best of" – as it's full of unusual numbers mixed in next to the classics – a set of 50 tracks that includes "Give Me All Your Love" by The Continentals, "Tell Me Darling" by Jackie Edwards, "One Eyed Giant" by Baba Brooks, "Keep The Pressure On" by Winston & George, "Perfida" by Phyllis Dillon, "King Without A Throne" by Sugar Simone, "Rock Steady Train" by Ewan & Jerry, "Rasta Never Fails" by The Charmers, "Them A Laugh & A Ki Ki" by The Soul Mates, "People Funny Boy" by Lee Scratch Perry, "I'm In The Mood For Ska" by Lord Tanamo, "Satan" by Justin Hinds & The Dominoes, "Rough & Tough" by Stranger Cole, "Man To Man" by Kentrick Patrick, "Rudy A Message To You" by Dandy Livingstone, "Way Of Life" by Lynn Taitt & The Jets, "Every Night" by Joe White & Chuck, "Hong Kong Flu" by The Ethiopians, and "Nana" by The Slickers.
