✨✧ Desmond DekkerDouble Dekker (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Trojan/Doctor Bird (UK), 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A killer double-length set of work from Desmond Dekker – one that's put together by Trojan Records to feature all the lesser-known and unreleased tracks that Desmond recorded during the years of his initial hits! As such, the album's a treasure trove of work that goes way past the oft-issued singles that Desmond cut in the late 60s and early 70s – tracks that are wonderful, and some of our favorites – but which are greatly expanded here! Dekker's voice is fantastic – as always – one of the sweetest soul sounds in Jamaican music – and the grooves are a mix of rocksteady and new reggae modes that were bubbling forth at the time. Titles include "Look What They're Doing To Me", "Life Of Opportunity", "Little Darling", "Warlock", "Licking Stick", "Hippopotamus", "The Song We Used To Sing", "Go & Tell My People", "Trample", "What Will You Gain", "My Reward", "Mother Nature", and "Life Hope & Faith". CD features 6 bonus tracks ''Father Noah", "Generosity", and four alternate versions of songs on the album! CD

✨✧ Desmond Dekker & The AcesAction/Intensified (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Beverley's/Doctor Bird (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A pair of early albums from Desmond Dekker & The Aces – both done right before the Jamaican group exploded with global fame – and were completely at the top of their powers! Actually, Dekker never seemed to falter at all – and right from the start, he's tremendous – this sweet-voiced, richly soulful singer who might have been Jamaica's answer to Sam Cooke – save maybe for the sharper edge he achieves working here with his classic group. The mix of Desmond's lead and the group's harmonies are set up in rocksteady rhythms throughout – on titles that include "007", "Sabotage", "Ah It Mek", "Rude Boy Train", "Sweet Music", "Coconut Water", "Wise Man", "Intensified", "You've Got Your Troubles", "Mother Young Girl", and "Keep A Cool Head". Both albums come with loads of bonus tracks – and the 2CD set features 52 tracks in all! CD

✨✧ VariousGot That Feeling – Work Your Soul Vol 2 ... CD
Trojan (UK), 1960s/1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Another mad mod collection of jumping R&B jams from Jamaica! Just like the blinding first Work Your Soul set, this disc proves that hopping ska tracks and scorching roots reggae weren't the only musical exports from Jamaica. You might guess from the artists included that this comp is in the vein of the reggae covers or reggae soul collections Trojan and other labels have issued, but what you're getting here is straight rhythm and blues, 25 smoking tracks that just might be the best two dozen rare soul and R&B numbers you've heard this year, or any year for that matter! Includes "Got The Feeling" b the Mighty Vikings, "Inspired To Love You" and "I've Got To Get There" by the Blues Busters, "Tell Me What It's About" and "Come Back Girl" by Jackie Edwards, "Shake Some Time" by Ronnie Gordon, "I'm Just A Guy" by Alton & Phyllis, "Ooh, Ooh" by Jackie & Millie, "Sugar" by Joyce Bond, "Feeling Peckish" by Bobby Ellis, "Give Him Up" by the First Generation, "Wide Awake In A Dream" by Philip James and "My Precious Love" by Desmond Dekker & The Aces.
