Sly & RobbieDub Sessions 1978 to 1985 ... CD
Jamaican Recordings (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $9.99
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

Black UhuruAnthem ... LP
Mango, 1982. Very Good+ ... $9.99
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".

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

This album couldn't be more aptly titled with Michael Rose, Puma Jones and Duckie Simpson tearing it up alongside Sly & Robbie, Mikey Chung, Darryl Thompson, Keith Sterling and Skyjuice live in Europe in the early 80s. 8 blistering number sin all: "Shine Eye Gal", "Plastic Smile", "Abortion", "General Penitentiary", 'Guess Who's Coming To Dinner", "I Love King Selassie", "Sinsemilla" and "Leaving For Zion".

Jimmy CliffFollow My Mind ... LP
Reprise, 1975. Very Good+ ... $11.99
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

Earth & StoneKool Roots ... CD
Pressure Sounds (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $14.99 15.99
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".

Island, 1982. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A stunner from Gwen – one of her catchiest club tunes from the early years! "It Should Have Been You" bounces along on a tight bassline, with riffing guitar, and sweet washes of keys that really set the scene for the strong lead vocal. And if that's not enough, Larry Levan mixed – giving the Sly & Robbie production and even better sound! 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Gregory IsaacsSlum In Dub ... CD
Burning Sounds/Secret (UK), 1978. Used ... $8.99
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

Grace JonesNightclubbing ... CD
Island, 1981. New Copy ... $4.99 5.98
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".

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

RevolutionariesBurning Dub (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Burning Sounds (UK), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99 19.99
Burning dub, indeed – as The Revolutionaries turn out a stellar set of instrumentals on this classic from the 70s! The album's got a totally top-shelf sound right from the start – excellent production from Junior English, who knows how to keep things clean and natural at just the right level – but add just the right studio tweaks, when needed – with a result that's maybe a bit more organic than some of the other dub albums of the time, but no less powerful in terms of the sound! Bass is by the mighty Robbie Shakespeare, who almost seems to lead the rest of the group – and drums are by Sly Dunbar, organ by Ansel Collins, piano by Glabby Anderson, and horns by Tommy McCook and Don D Junior. Titles include "Dan", "Gad & Asher", "Rueben", "Simeon & Levi", "Zebulun", "Benjamin", "Naptali", and "Issachar". LP, Vinyl record album

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".

Mango, 1988. Sealed ... $5.99
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

✨✧ AbyssiniansArise ... CD
Virgin, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A mighty roots harmony session! The Abyssinians were one of the first groups at the forefront of reggae to move away from the influence of the American soul scene and forge their own style. This album from the late 70s, a period when a lot of attention was being focused on the island from foreign musical markets, especially British labels like Virgin, is one of their finest efforts, a solid piece of laid back roots vibes, with an insistent, conscious message, and crisp, rolling grooves courtesy Boris Garner, Sly & Robbie, Fully Fullwood, Tommy McCook and many other greats. Includes "This Land Is For Everyone", "Meditation", "Wicked Men", "Dem A Come" and "Let My Days Be Long". CD

VariousStill Spicy Gumbo Stew – Original New Orleans R&B ... CD
AFO/Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
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.

Duck BakerOutside ... CD
Emanem (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... $9.99
We've heard Duck Baker play guitar before – and we're not necessarily the woman in the photo would be standing still if he was making music behind her – as the sound of his instrument is always pretty intense, and sometimes not for the faint of heart! Yet there's also a more personal, sometimes gentle approach here – in a great set that features 18 unissued tracks recorded by Baker in the years 1977, 1982, and 1983 – including two long duets with guitarist Eugene Chadbourne! Duck's still tremendously creative on the guitar – sometimes working the strings with melody, sometimes the whole instrument in a range of percussive passages and amazing tones – but never in a way that's showy, braggy, or crazy for crazy's sake – that special kind of performance that's maybe always linked some of Baker's work with the more outside moments of the acoustic underground that would include John Fahey and Robbie Basho. Titles include "Holding Pattern", "Klee", "Like Flies", "Tornio Improvvisazione", "Breakdown Lane", "Shovelling Snow", and "Things Sure Must Be Hoppin Tonight On Castro Street". CD
