✨✧ Bunny Lee & OthersDreads Enter The Gates With Praise – The Mighty Striker Shoots The Hits ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $18.99 22.98
A fantastic tribute to the studio genius of Bunny Lee – and a set that's filled with the kind of tracks that may well knock Lee Scratch Perry right out of the spotlight! Bunny already had a long and varied career in Jamaican music by the time of these tracks – hustling things up right from a grass roots level, then rising to prominence as a producer with a huge amount of inventive new techniques – including the flying cymbal rhythm sound, which was a great balance to some of the deeper, murkier elements in his grooves! These cuts are from a time when Bunny was working together with a host of fantastic singers, many of whom were inspired by the new more righteous modes that were coming into play at the time – opening up with deeper messages, and equally deep performances – in an array of tracks here that still have a tremendous amount of power, even after the space of decades – thanks in part to superb backings by The Aggrovators. The choice of tracks is wonderful, and the whole thing's put together with the usual stellar handling by Soul Jazz – with titles that include "Enter Into His Gates With Praise" by Johnny Clarke, "So Jah Se Dub" by The Aggrovators, "Magnum Force" by Vin Gordon & The Aggrovators, "Real Born African" by Jah Stitch, "King Tubby Dub" by King Tubby meets Tommy McCook & The Aggrovators, "Check Sister Jane" by Dillinger, "The Wormer" by Prince Jazzbo, "You Don't Care For Me" by The Uniques, "Natty Dread Have Ambition" by Shorty The President, "A Land Far Away" by Gene Rondo, "You Should Be Thankful" by Mighty Diamonds, "Marvelous Rocker" by Winston Wright, and "Principle & Dignity" by Jah Youth.

✨✧ Byron LeeReggay ... LP
Dynamic Sounds (Jamaica), Late 60s. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Classic early stuff by one of the biggest bands to break out of the Jamaican scene of the 60's. Byron leads his Dragonaires through a set of groovy short rocksteady cuts like "Another Scorcher", "Musical Scorcher", "More Scorcher", and "Bond In Bliss". Lots of cool echoey sax solos by Lester Sterling, and organ riffs by Winston Wright and Neville Hinds. LP, Vinyl record album
(Red label stereo pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear.)

Prince JammyPrince Jammy In Lion Dub Style ... LP
Jammy's/VP, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99 16.98
We're not sure what "lion style" is, but we can definitely say that the album's heavy on dub – a darkly bubbling masterpiece with Prince Jammy at the controls – crafting his magic to grooves by a top-shelf set of Kingston musicians! Winston Wright plays lots of keyboards – organ, clavinet, and even some harpsichord – and the real energy of the rhythms come from the young Sly & Robbie – very much in their prime here, without some of those later modes when they were trying to recopy themselves for the mainstream. Chinna Smith throws in lots of riffing guitar to the echoey brilliance – and titles include "No Bride", "Jammy's In The Arena", "Black Trap", "The Big Apple", "Rough Voyage", "Uhru Express", "King Forever", "Tiger Dub" and "Mystic Feelings".

Tennors & FriendsReggae Girl ... CD
Trojan/Grover (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $12.99 18.99
A smoking slice of work from The Tennors – plus some great cuts by other "friends" on the Jamaican scene of the late 60s! The group really shine on their own singles, then step aside to let some other artists come in too – almost all with a similar mix of soul and rocksteady rhythms, and an especially key focus on the kind of growing vocal harmonies that were really helping change the face of Jamaican music at the time! Titles include "Reggae Girl", "Khaki", "The Stage", "Ride Your Donkey", "Gram Pa", "Cleopatra", and "Double Attack" by The Tennors – plus "Oh My Baby" and "Go Your Way" by The Harmonians, "Donkey Trot" by Clive's All Stars, "While I'm Walking" by Roman Stewart, "Parapinto" by Johnny More & Karl Bryan, "Copy Me Donkey" by Charlie Organire with Tommy McCook, "I'm Gonna Make It" by Cliff Smith, and "Puzzle" by Winston Wright.

✨✧ Bunny WailerBlackheart Man ... LP
Island, 1976. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $14.99
The legendary solo debut of Bunny Wailer – a set that maybe marks him as the most righteous member of The Wailers! The style here is heavy on the roots tip, but there's also a special sort of vibe going on too – these warm currents that are laced with occasional touches of jazz, amidst a mellow-flowing presentation that's right up there with the best of Island Records in the mid 70s – but somehow deeper too! Peter Tosh joins a great lineup that includes Winston Barrett, Robbie Shakespear, Winston Wright, and other Jamaican instrumental giants – but it's definitely Bunny who holds the whole thing together with a spirit that's quite different than his famous previous partner, Bob Marley. Titles include "Blackheart Man", "Rasta Man", "This Train", "Reincarnated Souls", "Armagideon", "The Oppressed Song", "Fig Tree", and "Fighting Against Convictions". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousYou Can't Wine/Music Alone Shall Live (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Trojan/Doctor Bird (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pair of rare Trojan Records compilations, and a host of bonus tracks too – all making for a whopping 57 tracks in all! First up is You Can't Wine – a set that features titles that were released earlier on a variety of different labels, but which all came from the hands of producer Rupie Edwards – a strong mix of vocal tracks and instrumentals, all crackling with a cool late 60s Kingston vibe! Trojan Records pulled the work together after the initial release of the songs, making it one of the strongest statements of Edwards' skills – and titles include "Each Day" by Gregory Isaacs, "You Can't Wine" by The Kingstonians, "The Way I Feel" by Bob Andy, "I Can't Help Myself" by Lloyd Charmers, "Grandfather's Clock" by Winston Wright, "The Masquerade Is Over" by Dobby Dobson, and "I Need Your Loving" by The Concords. Music Alone Shall Live follows up with another Trojan collection of earlier singles issued on a variety of labels – great Rupie Edwards productions, on titles that include "Herbert Spliffington" by Winston Blake, "Too Late" by Gregory Isaacs, "Music Alone Shall Live" by The Mediators, "Since The Other Day" by Joe White, "Every Time" by The Itals, "Full Moon" by Rupie Edwards All Stars, and "Buttoo" by The Concords. Lots more bonus tracks too – by John Holt, Karl Bryan, Winston Blake, Neville Hinds, Dobby Dobson, and even Rupie Edwards himself! CD
