✨✧ DadawahPeace & Love ... LP
Dug Out (UK), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Hypnotic, spiritually resonant music from Rastafarian singer & hand drummer Ras Michael's Dadawah – with these organic, echoey, atmospheric drums, bass and trippy bits of keyboards – providing a strong, spacious backdrop for the freedom-seeking lyricism! It's very unique stuff, grounded in the spiritual vibes and earthy instrumentation, and feeling akin to some of the freely ambitious soul jazz of the time in spirit, with the roomiest of reggae rhythms. Titles include "Run Come Rally", "Seventy-Two Nations", "Zion Land" and "Know How You Stand", all on the longer side, and ultra mesmerizing. LP, Vinyl record album

Bunny LeeFull Up – Early Reggae Productions 1968 to 1972 ... LP
Pressure Sounds (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2 LPs ... $22.99 28.99
Mindblowing sounds from the great Bunny Lee – and exactly the kind of collection that makes us love the Pressure Sounds label so much! The track selection is wonderful – and most numbers are balanced in a unique space between reggae and rocksteady, and often have some crucial influences from American soul and funk as well – but they come across with a mode that's very different from more standard reggae, especially the style of the music that would be more codified a few years later. Instead, there's a really rich sense of experimentation here – as Bunny Lee and his All Stars work on instrumental tracks, or alongside other key artists like Delroy Wilson, Rico Rodriguez, Tommy McCook, U Roy, or Winston Williams. Some tunes have amazingly trippy touches – and a few points even mix in some wild moog too – and titles include "Double Attack", "Ivan Itler The Conqueror", "Scarface", "Joe Lewis", "War", "Wet Vision", "When I Get My Freedom", "Smooth & Sorts", and "Death Rides A Horse".

UniquesAbsolutely The Uniques ... LP
Trojan/Antarctica Starts Here, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... On March 27, 2020 (delayed)
Bad-stepping sounds from The Uniques – a really hip Jamaican vocal group, and one who sing with an edge that's maybe even sharper than some of their contemporaries! At first listen, the warmth of their harmonies is as sweet as you might expect – but as the music moves on, they open up all these unusual deeper, darker currents that really shape the sound in a great way – vocal interplay that's different than American soul groups, but which has that similarly revolutionary sense of changes taking place on the east coast indie scene. Rhythms are mostly in a stepping rocksteady mode – moving slow enough to allow for lots of vocal dynamics – and titles include "A Yuh", "Watch This Sound", "Run Come", "Speak No Evil", "Freedom Song", "My Conversation", and "Standing In".

✨✧ VariousScorcha – Skins, Suedes, & Styles From The Street (10 x 7 inch box set) ... 7-inch
Trojan (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 10 x 7 inch box set ... Out Of Stock
A host of killer cuts from the legendary Trojan Records – all pulled together here in a very limited box set! The package features songs chosen by Paul Smiler Anderson and Mark Baxter in tandem with their book on UK skinhead culture – a working class underground that rose up in the late 60s with a very different vibe than its later American counterpart – British kids who were more down to earth than mods, and who had as much of an open ear for sounds from the new immigrants to London as they did for the previous generation's American soul. This set really shows the kind of special cuts that broke big with the crowd – and titles include "Bang Bang Lulu" by Lloyd Terrel, "Train To Soulsville" by Cool Sticky, "Skinhead Girl" by Symarip, "CN Express (part 1)" by Clancy's All Stars, "I Can't Get Next To You" by Dave Barker & The Charmers, "Worries" by The Versatiles, "It Miek" by Desmond Dekker & The Aces, "Freedom Street" by Ken Boothe, "Soul Food" by Lyn Taitt & The Jets, "Don't Stay Away" by Phyllis Dillon, "The Scorcher" by Errol Dunkley, and "Shades Of Hudson" by Dennis Alcapone. (Funky 45's, Reggae) 7-inch, Vinyl record
