Black UhuruDub Factor ... LP
Mango, 1983. Near Mint- ... $14.99
One of our top 10 dub albums of all time! This LP bridges the gap between the the low-fi, down and dirty excursions of the 70's dub era, and the later high tech dub revolution brought on by On-U, Mad Professor and Jah Shaka. The rhythms here are all first rate, drawn mostly from their Chill Out LP with a few from Red, fueled by Sly and Robbie and a cast of regulars from the Island/Mango stable. Sly & Robbie also handle the production duties, and there's no shortage of fat grooves and unrelenting rhythms, then taken to the next level with deep space echo drops and 21st century sound effects and tape edits. Includes "Ion Storm", "Big Spliff", "Boof'N'Baff'N'Biff", "Puffed Out" and "Android Rebellion". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a fair amount of stuck-on paper and peeled spots, mostly on back.)

✨✧ Black UhuruGuess Who's Coming To Dinner ... CD
Heartbeat, 1980s. Used ... $4.99
Excellent compilation of some of the earlier material by Black Uhuru, before they were signed to Island, but after the Jammy produced Black Sounds of Freedom set. This is the stuff that really set them at the forefront of the 80s reggae scene, with sharp production by Sly & Robbie, and the Puma Jones, Duckie Simpson & Michael Rose lineup on vocals. Huge singles like "Shine Eye Gal", "General Penitentiary", "Guess Who's Coming To Dinner" and "Abortion" are included, plus "Leaving To Zion", "Natural Reggae Beat" and "Plastic Smile". CD

✨✧ Black UhuruRed ... CD
Mango/Island, 1981. Used ... $4.99
One of our favorite Black Uhuru albums, when they'd fully matured as a group under the production of Sly & Robbie, with a tight modern reggae sound that few other groups could match from that era. Heavy, heavy grooves saddled with the trios potent lyrics and harmony vocals, including the massive "Youth Of Eglington" and "Sponji Reggae", plus "Puff She Puff", "Rockstone", "Carbine", "Utterance", "Journey" and "Sistren". This CD reissue's been remastered, and adds the discomix version of "Sponji Reggae" and non-album track "Trodding" as bonus tracks. CD

✨✧ Black UhuruSinsemilla ... CD
Mango/Island, 1980. Used ... Just Sold Out!
The follow up to the burning Showcase set and second LP finding the harmony trio of Michael Rose, Puma Jones and Duckie Simpson under the heavy guidance of Sly & Robbie. While it didn't produce as many singular hits as the preceding set or the following Red LP, this album's still solid from top to bottom, with mighty, might Taxi productions grooves throughout. 10 tracks in all: "Happiness", 'World Is Africa", "Push Push", "There Is Fire", "No Loafing (Sit & Wonder)", "Sinsemilla", "Endurance" and "Vampire", plus the added bonus tracks "Guess Who's Coming To Dinner (discomix)" and "Sinsemilla (discomix)", and newly remastered too!

VariousKing Jammy's Roots Reality & Sleng Teng (2CD/DVD set) ... CD
17 North Parade, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used 2CD & DVD ... $11.99
Crucial sounds from King Jammy – prime material from that time when his production style was really helping to open up the sound of Kingston! The evolution of dub is definitely at play in the tracks here, but the music is also much more upfront, too – as the Jammy style is very cohesive, and really keeps a strong focus on the righteous lyrics for the vocal numbers – or important musical elements on the instrumental cuts. There's some nice electronic bits – those trademark sounds that are almost a Space Invader approach – mixed with warmer, soulful touches that definitely keep things real throughout! Titles include "Bad Girl" by Black Uhuru with Scorcher & Nicodemus, "Engineer Affair" by Errol Scorcher, "Selassie On His White Horse" by John Steele, "African Love/Yogi Bear" by Black Uhuru & Prince Hammer, "Where You Gonna Run" by The Fantells, "Jah Created The World" by Hortense Ellis, "Love Tickles Like Magic" by Junior Delgado, "Zambia" by Jammy's & King Tubby, and "The Lord Is My Shepherd" by Dennis Brown. CD version is great – 2CDs with 40 tracks in all – plus a bonus DVD that features the film "King At The Controls", plus bonus material too! CD

✨✧ VariousNigeria Afrobeat Special – The New Explosive Sound In 1970s Nigeria ... CD
Soundway (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An explosive entry in Soundway's impeccable Nigeria Special series of rare Afrobeat – digging deep for for material that's largely been lost for years and years – many recorded in the wake of the Fela revolution and all of it exciting and essential! Of all the stellar tracks on the set – which features numbers by Orlando Julius, Segun Bucknor, Saxon Lee and more – the lead off track may be the most revelatory. It's the original 1971 Fela recording of "Who're You" – which was eventually re-recorded at Abbey Road for his London Scene LP – insistent, funky and a amazing from the first sax & drum burst. The whole things outstanding, though, with numbers recorded for Decca, Phillips, EMI, Polydor in 1970s Nigeria. Incredible stuff, and the Soundway presentation is top notch as always! 11 tracks on the CD version: "Who Are You" (original 45 version) by Fela Ransome Kuti & The Africa 70, "We Dy Find Money" by Eric Showboy Akaeze & His Royal Ericos, "Enwan" by The Anansa Professionals, "Mind Your Business" by Saxon Lee & The Shadows International, "Afro-Blues" by Orlando Julius & His Afro-Sounders, "Ariwo Yaa" by Bob Ohiri And His Uhuru Sounds, "Ole" by Black Santiagos and more.
