✨✧ Sly & RobbieDub Sessions 1978 to 1985 ... CD
Jamaican Recordings (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $13.99
Righteous dub from one of the most important rhythm duos to ever work the Jamaican scene – drummer Sly Dunbar and bassist Robbie Shakespeare – a pair who've appeared on countless records for other folks over the years, and a handful of their own – really stepping out on a very dubby space in this collection of tracks from the late 70s and early 80s! The music has a nicely raw vibe – not unpolished, but just not as commercial as some of the 80s records issued under the name of Sly & Robbie – just core instrumentation with a wicked bassy vibe – played along with Chinna Smith on guitar, Tommy McCook on tenor, Bobby Ellis on trumpet, Jackie Mitoo on piano, and Winston Wright on organ. Titles include "African Roots Dub", "Top Ranking Style Dub", "Sly & Robbie The Kings Of Dub", "Burial Dub", "Jah Jah Dub", "Peace Dub", and "Liquidation Dub". CD features 3 bonus tracks too! CD

Earth & StoneKool Roots ... LP
Pressure Sounds (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $23.99 24.98
Great duo vocals from the team of Albert Bailey and Clifton Howell – recording here with some excellent rhythms from Sly & Robbie and the rest of the Channel One crew! The music is mostly mellow, with a stepping groove that works great for the harmonies of the pair – and there's a fair bit of roots numbers here, mixed with some warmer lovers' rock titles too. Like other great titles on Pressure Sounds, this one does a great job of giving Earth & Stone the showcase they deserve – with excellent sound, and notes on the music – and titles that include "False Ruler", "Once Bitten Twice Shy", "Black Roots", "Three Wise Men", "Holy Land Of Home", "Jail House Set Me Free", "Devil Wise", "House Of Dub", "Wiser Dub", and "Jester Not".

Serge GainsbourgL'Essential Des Albums Studio – 14 Albums Originaux 1958 to 1987 (12 CD set) ... CD
Universal (France), Late 50s/1960s/1970s/1980s. New Copy 12CD ... $36.99
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.

Gregory IsaacsSlum In Dub ... CD
Burning Sounds/Secret (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $16.99
Gregory Isaacs' name is on the cover – but the dub component here means that there's maybe a bit less vocals in the mix – as the album's the dub companion to Gregory's late 70s classic Cool Ruler! This set is much more focused on the excellent instrumental work – laid down by the Revolutionaries, with rhythms from Sly & Robbie, and keyboards from Ansel Collins – all mixed beautifully by a young Prince Jammy, at King Tubby's studio! The use of echo and odd electric bits at the edges is completely sublime – and titles include "Slum", "Reform Institution", "Tam Tam", "Leaving", "Public Eyes", and "Leggo Beast". CD

RevolutionariesRevolutionaries Sounds Vol 2 (2015 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Deeper Knowledge, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
The crew that not only invented the Rockers sound, but dominated the Jamaican music scene for nearly a decade should need no introduction from us, and this album showcases them at their best, going to town in fine dub form at Channel One. Sly and Robbie, Santa Davis, Ranchie McLean, Fully Fullwood, Rad Bryan, Tony Chin, Chinna Smith, Ansel Collins, Ossie Hibbert, Tarzan, Touter Harvey, Sticky, Barnabas, Sky Juice, Herman Marquis, Tommy McCook, Don D Junior and BobbyEllis are in the lineup and Ernest Hookim and Barnabas dub up the Joseph Hookim productions. 10 tracks in all, including "Tension", "Pressure", "Strain", "Severe","Rigid", "Intense", "Retribution", "Drastic", "Energy" and "Urgency".

Linval ThompsonStarlight ... LP
Mango, 1988. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A late 80s Taxi Gang production by Sly & Robbie with the slicker digital sound they were working in at that time, though they never lost their edge even when they got this polished. While Thompson was mostly known as a producer in the Dancehall genre, he does a fine job here singing on the Rhythm Twins' tracks. Includes "Poor Man", "Starlight", "Soon Come", "Looks Like It's Gonna Rain" and "Huff & Puff". LP, Vinyl record album

Bernie WorrellFunk Of Ages ... CD
Gramavision, 1990. Used ... $8.99
Maybe not the funk of ages, but a mighty nice solo set from Bernie Worrell – done at a key stretch when he was working away from George Clinton and the P-Funk universe! The set's got Bernie opening up in a blend of jazz and funk – and some tracks feature lead vocals, in a style that takes off from his earlier solo album on Arista, but tuned here with a bit more of that electro vibe that the Gramavision album was doing so well at the time! Bernie handles much of the music himself, but there's plenty of key guests on the record too – rhythms from Sly & Robbie, more keyboards from Herbie Hancock, guitar from Keith Richards and Vernon Reid, and seven some backing vocals from David Byrne and other old associates from the P-Funk years. Titles include "Straight Ahead", "Sing", "Don't Piss Me Off", "Ain't She Sweet", "V Spy", "BW Jam", "Volunteered Slavery/Bern's Blues/Outerspaceways", and "Beware Of Dog". CD

✨✧ King Tubby & Roots RadicsDangerous Dub ... LP
Greensleeves (UK), 1981. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Jimmy CliffFollow My Mind ... LP
Reprise, 1975. Used ... Out Of Stock
Strange & sublime reggae from Jimmy Cliff, cut during his mid 70s turn with Warner Brothers. A little more than half of the record was cut in Jamaica at Channel One and Tubby's, and features a cast of Jamaican greats like Sly & Robbie, Horsemouth, Ranchie and Prince Buster, but there's a number of cuts recorded in LA with Van Dyke Parks, Dennis Coffey and Jim Gilstrap among others. Jimmy's sweet alto sounds great throughout, and adapts just as well to the slick LA tracks as the rootsy Jamaican ones. Includes "I'm Gonna Live, I'm Gonna Love", "Who Feels It, Knows It", "Remake The World" and "You're The Only One". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Grace JonesLiving My Life ... LP
Island, 1982. Used ... 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
(Original pressing with the heavy inner sleeve.)

✨✧ Grace JonesPrivate Life (long, dub)/She's Lost Control (long, dub) (2016 Record Store Day Release) ... 12-inch
Universal (Italy), 1980. New Copy (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
Two great numbers from Grace's Warm Leatherette album, with Sly & Robbie in full effect! Grace's presence is as commanding as ever out front, while Sly & Robbie inject a good dose of bouncing reggae vibes into both numbers, which really want to be disco, but are more disco-not-disco, and sublimely so. Her rendering Joy Division's "She's Lost Control" is especially surreal, and both are here in long and dub versions. 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Grace JonesSlave To The Rhythm ... LP
Island, 1985. Used ... Out Of Stock
Pretty nice later work from Grace! Although we prefer the percolating disco meets reggae records Grace Jones cut with Sly & Robbie to this later effort – but there's no denying that on a couple of numbers she really clicks with producer Trevor Horn's slick sheen. With "Ladies & Gentlemen: Miss Grace Jones", "Jones The Rhythm", "The Fashion Show", "The Frog & The Princess" and "Slave To The Rhythm". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear.)

✨✧ Desmond DekkerBlack & Dekker – The Complete Stiff Recordings 1980 to 1983 (Black & Dekker/Compass Point/bonus tracks) ... CD
Stiff/Pressure Drop (UK), Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The complete Stiff Records work of Desmond Dekker – served up here on two albums, plus bonus tracks too! First up is Black & Dekker – surprisingly great later work from the legendary Desmond Dekker – a set that should have been a sloppy cash-in during the ska revival, but material that shows Desmond still very much at the top of his game! The production and backings show a bit of a late 70s British touch, but Dekker's vocals are still very much his own – and the tunes really faithfully stay in the groove that made him so great in the first place. Titles include "Israelites", "Lickin' Stick", "It Mek", "Please Don't Bend", "Many Rivers To Cross", "Hippo", "Juliet", "007", "Work It Out", "Problems", "Rude Boy Train", "Pickney Gal" and "Why Fight". On the Compass Point album, Desmond Dekker gets a bit of a contemporary groove – working at the Compass Point studios, in a mode that inflects his early ska roots with some hip early 80s production touches too! The approach still has all the charm of Dekker's classic recordings, but brings in some of the more offbeat elements of the Sly & Robbie generation – in a Compass Point mode that's never too trippy or self-indulgent, but which definitely adds just the right bits to keep things interesting. Titles include "Isabella", "Hurts So Bad", "We Can & Shall", "Big Headed", and "That's My Woman". CD features bonus tracks "Workout (groove version)", "Hot City", "Book Of Rules", and "That's My Woman (rmx)". CD

✨✧ RicoMan From Wareika (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Island (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Serge GainsbourgAux Armes Et Caetera EP (with download) ... LP
Philips (France), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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!)

✨✧ IjahmanAre We A Warrior/Haile I Hymn ... CD
Island (Japan), 1978/1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ InturnsConsider Yourself ... LP
Pressure Sounds (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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
