✨✧ Sly & RobbieRhythm Killers ... CD
Island (Japan), 1987. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
We love Sly & Robbie – really we do! And while they were responsible for many of the toughest rhythms ever laid to wax, they did cut their share of material that hits nice and hard, but may not be as sublimely breezy. This Bill Laswell produced session finds the Rhythm Twins meeting up with an all star cast including Rammellzee, Bernie Worrell, Henry Threadgill and D. St. among others, it somehow manages to fully embrace the modern sound of the 80s, while still connected to a rootsier genetic materials – and given how prevelent 80s influences are in post-millenium popular music, its got quiet a prescient feel! Includes "Fire", "Boops (Here To Go)", "Let's Rock", "Yes We Can Can", "Rhythm Killer" and "Bank Job". CD

Black UhuruBlack Sounds Of Freedom ... LP
Greensleeves, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $10.99
The debut album from the second lineup of Black Uhuru, with Duckie Simpson, Michael Rose and Errol Nelson. Produced by Prince Jammy, this is a tremendous slice of rootsy rockers, even if it doesn't quite top the later version of the group with Puma Jones and Sly & Robbie's production. This later Greensleeves edition was remixed by Jammy at Tubby's in 1981, and includes "Time To Unite", "Love Crisis", "Willow Tree", "African Love", "Eden Out Deh", "I Love King Selassie", "Hard Ground" and a great version of Marley's "Natural Mystic".

Serge GainsbourgAux Armes Et Caetera (expanded 2CD set) ... CD
Universal (France), 1979. Used 2 CDs ... $13.99
A great little album from Serge – possibly his last truly genius record, and one with a very unusual twist! The album was recorded in Jamaica with production from Sly & Robbie – very much in the late 70s, big-business reggae mode – but done with Serge's usual flair for the lyric. The album's not really a reggae album – more a set of dubby tracks that have a similar feel to some of Serge's other backings during the 70s, with whispered sexy lyrics over the top. The record shouldn't work, but it does – and picks up a sound that's similar to Serge's work on the excellent album L'Homme A Tete Chou! Titles include "Relax Baby Be Cool", "Daisy Temple", "Javanaise Remake", "Pas Long Feu", and "Marilou Reggae Dub". Plus, this 2CD expanded version features a full disc of bonus material – 10 tracks that are dubs pulled from the original sessions, plus 14 more tracks that are DJ versions of tunes from the set – performed by a variety of singers, with new lyrics!

Serge GainsbourgAux Armes Et Caetera EP (with download) ... LP
Philips (France), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
Serge Gainsbourg reinvents "La Marseillaise" into a surprisingly great reggae groover – heard here in a host of mixes that further expand on its original genius! The 1979 recording was done at Dynamic Sounds in Kingston – with help from Sly & Robbie, and a host of top shelf talents – all with this dubby rhythm that's totally wonderful – and the single features an added dub mix of the tune, plus a DJ version that has Big Youth singing vocals, and a further dub of that version too! LP, Vinyl record album
(Comes with bonus download too!)

Serge GainsbourgL'Essential Des Albums Studio – 14 Albums Originaux 1958 to 1987 (12 CD set) ... CD
Philips/Universal (France), Late 50s/1960s/1970s/1980s. New Copy 12CD ... $52.99
Amazing music – at an equally amazing price! The set features every studio album ever recorded by Serge Gainsbourg – monumental sounds that completely transformed the world of French music in the 60s and 70s, and have gone on to have a global impact well into the 21st Century! The sounds here are amazing right from the start – a mix of jazz, Latin, and other hip modes – all set to playfully sinister lyrics by Serge – which get even better as the 60s move on, and Gainsbourg dips into fuzz, funk, and other amazing elements to push out some far frontiers in his music! The 70s sees some great electronics, classic collaborations with Sly & Robbie, and gives way to some surprisingly great 80s material towards the end of Serge's too-short career. Box features 14 albums on 12 CDs – with records that include Du Chant A La Une, No 2, L'Etonnant Serge Gainsbourg, No 4, Gainsbourg Percussions, Initials BB, Jane Birkin/Serge Gainsbourg, Histoire De Melody Nelson, Vu De L'Exterieur, L'Homme A Tete De Chou, Aux Armes Et Caetera, Mauvaises Nouvelles Des Etoiles, Love On The Beat, and You're Under Arrest.

IjahmanAre We A Warrior/Haile I Hymn ... CD
Island (Japan), 1978/1979. New Copy ... $13.99
2 great lost roots albums from the underrated Ijahman Levi! At the cusp of the 80s he appeared poised to achieve the level of dominance over the Jamaican scene like Burning Spear held in the early 70s, only to leave us with these 2 monumental recordings and labor quietly for the rest of his career. Contrary to the style of most reggae LPs, both of the albums in this set feature longer tracks – extended devotional roots numbers, crisply produced by Ijahman and Geoffrey Chung, tracked at Joe Gibbs' with Errol Thompson on board, and featuring a crack band loaded with heavies like Willie & Earl Wire Lindo, Ossie Hibbert, Lloyd Parks, Sly & Robbie, and percussive help from the Sons Of Negus. 9 numbers in all: "Are We A Warrior", "Moulding", "The Church", "Miss Beverly", "Two Sides Of Love", "Jah Heavy Load", "Jah Is No Secret", "Zion Hut" and "I'm A Levi".

Soulful harmonies-laded Jamaican music from The Inturns – who also recorded as The Viceroys and with other monikers from the mid 60s onward – and are really in peak form here in the later 70s! It's beautiful stuff, with rhythms that balance a rawer grit with a lighter touch – laid down at Channel One by Sly & Robbie, Ansell Collins, Skully Sims and other prime scene players – but it's really the soul-steeped vocals that carry the vibe here. The Pressure Sounds pedigree for underappreciated archival reggae continues to blow us away! Includes "Send Us", "Consider Yourself", "Detour", "Jah Ho Jah", "Nothing Is Impossible", "Get To Know", "Do We Have To Fight", "Sing A Good Song", and "Jah Ho". LP, Vinyl record album

Grace JonesNightclubbing (2CD deluxe version) ... CD
Island (UK), 1981. New Copy 2CD ... $34.99
One of our favorite albums ever from Grace Jones – a record that has her shedding some of the disco excesses of earlier years, and moving into a great blend of sounds that really showcases the energy of the New York scene from which she sprang! The album was recorded in Nassau, with help from Sly Dunbar on drums, Robbie Shakespeare on bass, and Wally Badarou on keyboards – and most tunes have an edgier feel that makes Jones sound even darker than before. There's loads of great disco-not-disco moments – from the straight funk of "Pull Up To The Bumper" to the insane post-punk grooving of "Demolition Man" – to other tracks that include "I've Seen That Face Before (Libertango)", "Art Groupie", "Walking In The Rain", "Nightclubbing", and "Use Me". 2CD set is filled with great bonus material – 13 more titles that include "Me I Disconnect From You", "Use Me (long version)", "Demolition Man (12" version)", "Pull Up To The Bumper (long version)", "Walking In The Rain (12" version)", "I've Seen That Face Before (12" version)", "Peanut Butter (inst)", "I You Wanna Be My Lover", "Feel Up (ext rmx)", "Pull Up To The Bumper (1985 rmx)", and "Esta Cara Me Es Conocida".

MaterialThird Power ... CD
Axiom, 1991. Used ... $4.99
As with much of the work in his career, Bill Laswell assmebles an all star cast, this one based around the crew he'd pull from as he explored some of the heavier more tripped out directions that seemed to guide his work through the 90s. On the one hand he's tapping into the P-Funk axis with Bootsy, Gary Shider, Mudbone Cooper and Bernie Worrell, while still using some of the world music and reggae musicians he recruited nteh 80s, like Sly & Robbie and Aiyb Deng, plus the JB's horns withMaceo Parker, Fred Wesley and Pee Wee Ellis. Add a touch of avant jazz from Olu Dara and Henry Threadgill, plus a host of vocalists including the Jungle Brothers, Jalaluddin Nuriddin of the Last Poets and Shabba Ranks and you've got a pretty heavy cast of characters. Includes "Reality", "Playin With Fire", "Cosmic Slop", "E-Pluribus-Unum", "Drive-By", "Power OF Soul (Black Chant)", "Mellow Mood" and "Glory". CD

Johnny OsborneWater Pumping ... LP
Greensleeves, 1983. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99
A tremendous effort early 80s effort from Johnny Osbourne! The title tune a straight up early 80s dancehall classic, and the rest of the record holds up very well after all these year. Sly and Robbie are on the rhythms, along with other top notch players from Prince Jammy's stable, plus some distinctive bits of electric strings and some soulful backing vocals that give it a unique vibe. Greatness! Includes the classic title cut, "Fire Down Below", "Trouble Maker", "Dance With You", "Rolling Reggae", "Love You Tonight", "Na Look Nobody", "Purify Your Heart", "Get Up" and "Angel In My Arms".

Frankie PaulTidal Wave ... LP
Greensleeves, 1985. New Copy (reissue)... $8.99 13.98
Classic mid 80s dancehall from singer Frankie Paul and producer George Phang – with a vive that's rooted in soul, thanks in no small part to Frankie's sweetly emotional vocal approach – but it's done with lean, modern sound that's held up well over the years! The songs cut deep and Frankie sounds great, doing his thing over a crisp, but not overly glossy sound, with distinctive Sly & Robbie rhythms giving it a nice little bit of grit. Wonderful stuff – with "Dem A Go Feel It", "Beat Down The Fence", "Baby Come Home", "She's Got Soul", "Tidal Wave", "Your Love Is Amazing", "King Champion", "You Too Greedy", "Hold Me" and more.

✨✧ RicoWarrika Dub – Ghetto Rockers ... CD
Island (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $13.99
A sweet dub companion to Rico's excellent Man From Wareika album. The original LP was an instrumental affair to begin with, so this set reworks the mixes with the parts ducking in and out with a few tasteful dub effects added here and there to add a new dimension to the jazzed up reggae numbers. The group is pretty large, sort of a Jamaican all stars, with names like Sly & Robbie, Skully, and Dirty Harry, running through 9 dubs of tracks from the original album, including "Gunga Din Dub", "Lumumba Dub", "Over The Mountain Dub", "Dial Africa Dub", "Man From Wareika Dub", "Rasta Dub" and "This Day Dub".

Jamaican Recordings (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... About August 1, 2015
Stellar dubs from Tommy McCook – co-founder of The Skatalites and master studio player for myriad classic ska and rocksteady recordings – great stuff from the pivotal 70s period! The style here is more richly arranged than a lot of the dub from the 70s onward – with lots of space for more instruments into the mix, still heavy with echoey, dubby atmospherics. Musicians include The Aggrovators, Soul Syndicate, Sly & Robbie, Sly Dunbar, Robbie Shakespeare, Aston Barrett and Earl Smith. Tracks include Includes "Tommy's Hop", "Take This Fruit", "Jumper's Dub", "Merry Up", "Aggrovating Horns", "Dub Train", "Waltzing Rockers", "Dub Fever", "Dub For Ethiopia", ", "Chantdown Babylon With Horns", "Dub Creation" and more.

✨✧ Grace JonesLiving My Life ... LP
Island, 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Grace Jones' best albums – recorded at a point when she was really beginning to stretch the boundaries of club music, crossing over with the early 80s post-punk/post-disco crowd through a melange of sounds that was all her own. The oveblown diva mode of her disco years is gone by this point – and in its place is a wonderfully stripped down sound that bubbles with influences from reggae, post-punk, and elsewhere! The set was recorded in Nassau, with rhythm from Sly, Robbie, and Wally Badarou – and titles include a fair bit of original numbers penned with Barry Reynolds. Tracks include "Nipple To The Bottle", "My Jamaican Guy", "The Apple Stretching", "Cry Now, Laugh Later", and "Inspiration". LP, Vinyl record album

A major outing from Rico Rodriguez – one of the great Trombonists of the pre-ska era, who continued to lead the way with his horn throughout all the periods Jamaican music would morph through, but maintained a sound rooted in jazz. The group is pretty large, sort of a Jamaican all stars, with names like Sly & Robbie, Skully, and Dirty Harry, and they run through some nice jazzy instrumentals, with a crisp syncopated island rhythm chugging along underneath. There's 9 tracks on the original album, including "Gunga Din", "Lumumba", "Over The Mountain", "Dial Africa" and "This Day", plus an additional 9 tracks of bonus material on the CD version, including "You Really Got Me", "Midnight In Ethiopia", "Free Ganja", "Take Five" and "Ska Wars".

✨✧ VariousMaxfield Avenue Breakdown – Channel One Dubs & Instrumentals 1974 to 79 ... CD
Pressure Sounds (UK), 1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Pressure Sounds does it again! This collection documents instrumentals and dubs cut at Channel One, run by the Hookim brothers, which was one of the centerpieces of the Jamaican music industry throughout the 70s. Countless classic sides were cut there, with the blueprint for the influential Rockers rhythm laid out by the most important rhythm section in reggae at the time, and probably one of the most significant in the history of recorded music: Sly & Robbie. The cover of this compilation is actually a remake of the "Vital Dub" LP by the Revolutionaries, Sly & Robbie's band of the time, who lay down the tracks here, with keys by Osse Hibbert & Ansel Collins and horns by the great Tommy McCook & Vin Gordon. 16 smokin Rockers grooves, including "Ragnampaiza Version", "Woman Is Like A Shadow Version", "CB 200 Version", "Ballistic Affair Version", "School Days Version" and "Fire Bun Version".

As Sly & Robbie and many of reggae's first instrumental visionaries moved on, younger groups like the Roots Radics stepped to the fore, though this line up featured both younger talent like Style Scott and Bingy Bunny and stalwarts like Flabba Holt and Gladdie Anderson. And while we love the work that Roots Radics would do with Scientist, this effort's no slouch either, with 10 hard hitting dubs, including ""Country Gal Dub", "Loud Mouth Rock", "Up Town Special"{, "London Bridge Special", "Earthquake Shake" and "Knife & Fork Dubwise".
