Black UhuruDub Factor ... CD
Mango/Island, 1983. Used ... $3.99
One of our top 10 dub albums of all time! This album 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". This CD reissue's been newly remastered, with 3 additional dubs as bonus tracks: "Cool Off", "Destination Unknown" and "Fire & Brimstone". CD

✨✧ Black UhuruAnthem ... LP
Mango, 1982. Used ... Out Of Stock
The cream of the crop of early 80s reggae. Fusing militant, political lyrics with the excellent harmony vocal arrangements of Puma Jones, Duckie Simpson and Michael Rose and the unrelenting electrified rhythms of Sly & Robbie, Black Uhuru represented the zenith of the modern Roots era. This album is considered by many to be the group's last great one, in spite of a number of concessions that gave it further commercial appeal – and helped it win a grammy. Whatever your opinion, it's hard to argue with classic cuts like "What Is Life?", "Solidarity", "Party Next Door" and "Bull In The Pen", plus "Black Uhuru Anthem", "Try It", "Botanical Roots" and "Elements".

BlackbeardAnthology – Too Much Iron In The Fire ... CD
Trojan (UK), 1970s. Used 2 CDs ... $14.99
An excellent collection of roots and Jamaican soul recorded under the guidance of Roderick Blackbeard Sinclair. While a bunch of attention seems to get paid to heavy producers like Striker Lee, Blackbeard, an acolyte of Lee's has waited long enough to be anthologized properly!

✨✧ Charles Tyler EnsembleCharles Tyler Ensemble ... LP
ESP, 1966. Near Mint- ... $59.99
One of the best ESP sessions from the mid 60s – and a startling album of avant tracks from Charles Tyler, and his group that included Henry Grimes, Charles Moffet, Joe Friedman, and a young Ronald Jackson. Moffet plays vibes on the session, and combines with Friedman's cello and Grimes' bass, the overall sound is extremely dark and compelling. Titles include "Lacy's Out East", "Three Spirits", "Black Mysticism", and "Strange Uhuru". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing! Cover has light wear and a bit of pen on front. Label has a radio station stamp.)
