Sly & RobbieLanguage Barrier ... LP
Island, 1985. Very Good ... $6.99
Nice 80s digital dub era grooves from Sly & Robbie! For years, We'd back and forth on how we feel about Bill Laswell's slick modern production – but we've really come around on it more recent years, especially considering how influential the 80s style turned out to be in post-millennium music, be reggae or just about any other popular genre. That said, we've never doubt Sly & Robbie, so in the grand scheme of things, this album always boiled down to a winner. Like a lot of mid 80s Material productions, this one pulls in an all star cast to lend a hand to the Rhythm Twins, including Bernie Worrell, Herbie Hancock, Wally Badaru, Manu Dibango, Afrika Bambaata, Bernard Fowler, Mike Hampton, Doug E Fresh and even Bob Dylan. The overall groove is very electro, with 6 long-ish numbers: "Make 'Em Move", "No Name On The Bullet", "Mile (Black Satin)", "Bass & Trouble", "Language Barrier" and "Get To This, Get To That". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the original inner sleeve. Cover has a promo stamp and lightly bent corners.)

VariousSly & Robbie Present – Taxi Gang In Disco Mix Style 1977 to 1987 ... CD
Cree (Germany), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy ... $18.99 21.99
A very cool side of the Sly & Robbie legend – a series of recordings the duo made with a range of different singers – all as Jamaican-styled remakes of American soul and club tracks from the 70s! The vibe here is definitely more reggae than disco – with a groove slowed down a lot more than the speed of Studio 54 – and the pair are really coming into their own as creative talents, working on the experience they gained for years on other folks' records – which really helps create the right sort of rhythms for these grooves. As you'd guess from the dates in the title, the set stretches into the digital reggae years – which turned out to be one of the most productive periods for Sly & Robbie – and titles include "Sexual Healing" by Jimmy Riley, "Show & Tell" by Ken Boothe, "Could It Be I'm Falling In Love" by Home T-4, "Inner City Blues" by Delroy Wilson, "Break Your Promise" by Barry Biggs, "You Must Believe In Me" by Junior Tamlins Moore, "Fever" by Marcia Griffiths, and "Rainy Night In Georgia" by Tinga Stewart.

✨✧ Mary Ameri & Torsten SchmidtFor The Record – Conversations With People Who Have Shaped The Way We Listen To Music (hardcover) ... Book
Gestalten (Germany), 2013. New Copy ... $10.99 39.95
A very cool project from the Red Bull Music Academy – a surprisingly strong force in recent years for bringing together a range of different musical strands! The book features pairings of two different artists or musicians – each talking with the other about their music, the process of creation, and a range of different topics too – all on large, full-color pages that present the text in artbook style – which makes the whole thing as much of a visual joy as it is a musical one! Conversations include Bernard Purdie talking with Jaki Liebezeit, Martyn Ware and Nile Rodgers, Joao Barbosa with Mulatu Astatke & Kalaf Angelo, Benny Ill with Moritz Von Oswald, Matais Aguayo with Sly & Robbie, Ben UFO with DJ Harvey, Erykah BAdu with The Underachievers, Cosey Fanni Tutti and Nik Void, and Modeselektor with Mykki Balanco. There's also a range of additional essays, too – penned by some of the above, as well as Patrick Adams, Adrian Sherwood, Lee Scratch Perry, and others – and the book is massive – hardcover, oversize, and a heavy 396 pages.

Mango, 1982. Near Mint- ... $7.99
The last of what we'd considered Black Uhuru's crucial middle period, with the Michael Rose, Puma Jones, Duckie Simpson lineup and some awesome electrified production courtesy Sly & Robbie, at the height of their game. With some heavy rhythms, dub influenced atmospherics and excellent playing at the hands of the Revolutionairies, this rermains one of our favorite modern reggae albums. Includes "Chill Out", "Darkness", "Wicked Act", "Emotional Slaughter" and "Right Stuff". LP, Vinyl record album

Black UhuruDub Factor ... CD
Mango/Island, 1983. New Copy ... $4.99 11.98
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

Desmond DekkerBlack & Dekker – The Complete Stiff Recordings 1980 to 1983 (Black & Dekker/Compass Point/bonus tracks) ... CD
Stiff/Pressure Drop (UK), Early 80s. Used 2 CDs ... $6.99
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

Tommy McCookReggae In Jazz ... CD
Pressure Sounds (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
Masterful reggae instrumentals from the great Tommy McCook! Reggae In Jazz does indeed have some jazz-steeped solos augmenting the vibe quite nicely, but it's perhaps not the full on reggae/jazz hybrid the title suggests – which is a good thing, actually! The rhythms are strongly rooted in classic Dynamic and Channel One reggae instro territory, but the vibe is enhanced a bit by soul jazzy organ, guitar and more on the solo tip – and a bit of funk, too! Produced by Buster Riley, with Sly Dunbar, Santa Davos. Robbie Shakespeare, Chinna Smith, Ansel Collins, Jackie Mitoo and other legends on the session. Titles include "Grass Root", "Caution", "Sin", "Wild Bunch", "Bam-Bam", "Collin '1'", "Collin '2'", "Bad Man", "Good Bye". "Black-Out", "Rock Away" and "War". CD version includes the bonus "Beirut" and "Beirut (Version)". CD

RicoMan From Wareika ... LP
Blue Note, 1976. Very Good- ... $19.99
A major outing from Rico Rodrigues – 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. 9 tracks, including "Gunga Din", "Lumumba", "Over The Mountain", "Dial Africa" and "This Day".

TechniquesTechniques In Dub ... CD
Pressure Sounds (UK), 1970s. Used ... $21.99
A new issue of the lost "Meditation Dub" LP, produced by Winston Riley, and dubbed into deep space at Channel 1 and Dynamic studios, the sources of some of the heaviest Jamaican grooves of the 70s. Boris Gardner and Robbie Shakespeare lay the foundation with Sly on drums, while percolating keyboards by Jackie Mittoo & Ansel Collins and a great horn section that includes Tomy McCook & Bobby Ellis drift in and out, buoyed by some nice echoplex effects, that are never over-the-top. You'll recognize the classic "Stalag" rhythm right away, and we can't take "Gambling", "I'll Be Waiting", or "Man of My Word" out of rotation, and that's not even half of the 10 cuts included in this set – plus the CD includes an extra set of 10 more dubs!

Includes "Mama Africa", "Glasshouse", "Maga Dog", "Where You Gonna Run", "Peace Treaty", and his cover of "Johnny B Goode". CD

✨✧ Black UhuruAnthem ... LP
Mango, 1982. Used ... Temporarily 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".

The soulful Johnny Clarke is in some wonderful company here – working with backing from a version of The Agrovators that features Sly & Robbie on some very modern rhythms, plus lead guitar from Chinna Smith and organ from Winston Wright! The group have a laidback, bad-stepping vibe that fits perfectly with Johnny's vocal flow – a style that has an edge, but in a way that's a bit different than some of the more righteous talents of the time – a great reminder that in the underground of the period, there was still some real magic happening away from more mainstream productions. Bunny Lee produced and arranged – and titles include "Play Fool Get Wise", "Riding For A Fall", "Midnight Cowboy", "I Love You Madly", "I Can't Explain", "Easy Skanking", and "This Heart Of Mine".

Island, 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Gwen Guthrie's first album for Island Records – a unique little soul set from the early 80s, recorded in Nassau with backing from Sly & Robbie – in a groove that's totally great! The rhythms here are really at the heart of the set – not in a way that eclipses Gwen's vocals, but which does plenty to make the record stand out from the pack at the time – in a groove that's partly clubby, mostly soulful, and which has some key elements from its Nassau connection! Other players on the date include Wally Badarou on keyboards and Sticky Thompson on percussion – and titles include "Peek A Boo", "Your Turn To Burn", "God Don't Like Ugly", "Dance Fever", "Getting Hot", "Your Turn To Burn", and "For You".

Island, 1983. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Early work from Gwen Guthrie – produced by Sly & Robbie, but with a sweet modern soul sound that's got a lot less of their influence than you'd guess! The sound is much more New York than Jamaica – and that's probably due to some great instrumental backing on keyboards by the likes of Harry Whitaker, Bernie Worrell, and Wally Badarou – all massive talents that bring a nice sweet jazzy sound to the best cuts on the record. There's a definite 80s sing-song groove going on – in that not-yet-top-of-the-charts soul sound that you'd hear on the better small urban stations at the time – moving back and forth nicely, in a strong link between the mainstream and the underground clubs! Tracks include "Hopscotch", "Seventh Heaven", "Oh What A Life", "Younger Than Me", and a nice cover of Sly Stone's "Family Affair". LP, Vinyl record album

Island, 1981. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

A sweet set of tracks from those great years when Delroy Wilson was recording with Bunny Lee – work that features Wilson's already-impeccable voice, trained on a host of Studio One and Lee Perry productions – taken to even greater heights in the freedoms of the new reggae generation! At some level, the work here is almost a throwback to the 60s – given the reliance on American soul source material – but there's also a hipper, headier quality to the rhythms, which have a way of being complex, yet understated at the same time – carved out with help from Sly & Robbie on drums and bass, Winston Wright on organ, and Tommy McCook on tenor. Titles include "Living In The Footsteps", "Here Come The Heartaches", "Can I Change Your Mind", "Drink Wine", "Live & Learn", "Peace & Love", "Get Ready", and "The Same Old Song".

AFO/Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Rare singles, unreleased tracks, and lots of gems from the New Orleans soul scene of the 60s – including a fair bit of cuts that go way past the obvious! The music here comes from the AFO collection of labels – and includes a few numbers from the Ric & Ron imprints, too – all brought together as a beautiful illustration of the rougher sound of soul that was coming from the city at the time – music that drew on the strong legacy of New Orleans R&B of the 50s, but moved into more upbeat, gritty styles for the 60s! The set features 24 numbers in all – 7 of which are previously unissued – and titles include "I Got A Feelin" by Nooky Boy, "Money" by AFO Executives with Tami Lynn, "Who Knows" by Willie Tee, "I Don't Want To Be Hurted" by Barbara George, "Shrimp Boat" by Dr John, "Heart For Sale" by Robbie Lee, "Nancy" by AFO Executives, "Soulful Woman" by Alvin Robinson, "End Of A Dream" by James Booker, "Roman-itis" by Eddie Bo, "Baby" by Tami Lynn, and "Why Couldn't It Be Me" by Turquinettes.
