✨✧ VariousTreasure Isle Solid Gold – Sounds From Bond Street ... LP
Treasure Isle/Charly (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
There's a flurry of rare Jamaican singles on the cover, and that's definitely what you'll hear on the album – but presented in a great format that really makes these ska and rocksteady nuggets come alive with better sound than in their original pressings! The package features key tracks recorded by Treasure Isle, at a time when the imprint was one of the most important on the Kingston scene – and definitely tuned to the sorts of singers who would bring a lot more soul to Jamaican music in years to come! There's a total of 16 cuts in all – and titles include "Penny Reel" by Eric Monty Morris, "Rough & Tough" by Stranger Cole & The Skatalites, "Perfidia" by Phyllis Dillon, "The Tide Is High" by The Paragons, "Everybody Bawling" by U-Roy & The Melodians, "Ali Baba" by John Holt, "Carry Go Bring Come" by Justin Hinds, "Rock Steady" by Alton Ellis, "Baba Boom" by The Jamaicans, and "Angel Of The Morning" by Joya Landis.

JezzreelGreat Jah Jah ... CD
Wackie's (Germany), 1980. New Copy ... $12.99 16.99
Wonderfully righteous work from the Wackie's label – a heady set of long roots reggae tunes with a very message-oriented vibe – all with the feel of a very small label scene from the Kingston scene of five years before, than some of the bigger and more commercial Jamaican music from the start of the 80s! The sound is nice and lean – snakey guitar lines in a very echoey, dubby space – as Clive Davis and Christopher Harvey harmonize together on the lyrics, somehow bringing a lot more power to the message than if they were delivered by a single singer. Titles include "Sun Will Shine", "Great Jah Jah", "Roman Soldiers", "Living In The Ghetto", and "Where Is That Love". CD
