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

✨✧ Sly & RobbieLanguage Barrier ... LP
Island, 1985. Very Good+ ... $8.99
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.)

Sly & RobbieUnmetered Taxi – Sly & Robbie's Taxi Productions ... CD
Pressure Sounds (UK), 1980s. Used ... $12.99
Earthshaking bass and percolating drums keep this superb set rockin' in fine style! Well known as the lynch pin to so many great rhythms cut from the 70s onward, Sly & Robbie's reputation as one of Jamaica's baddest rhythm sections precedes them. This compilation focuses on tracks produced by the Rhythm Twins, and issued on their Taxi label at the cusp of the 80s, one of numerous peaks in their lengthy career. 22 tracks in all, essential numbers issued here with their mighty instrumental versions: "Baltimore" and "Real Love" by The Tamlins, "Rocky Music" by Struggle, "Tickle Me" by Thrilla, "Shine Eye Gal" by Black Uhuru, "Old Broom" by the Wailing Souls, "Amblique" by Taxi featuring Brian and Tony Gold, "Love and Devotion" by Jimmy Riley, "Revolution (dub plate Version)" and "Revolution" by Dennis Brown and "Heart Made Of Stone" by The Viceroys plus "Baltimore Version", "Rocky Music dub", "Real Love Version", "Tickle Me Version", "Shine Eye Version", "Drunken Master (Love and Devotion Version)", "Revolution Version", "Unmetered Taxi", "Unmetered Taxi Version", "Old Broom Version" and "Heart Made Of Stone Version". As usual, excellent notes and nice package from Pressure Sounds make this set complete! CD
(Out of print. Please note – while the overall sound quality of this recording is excellent, it appears that at least one track was remastered off an original vinyl copy.)

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

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".

✨✧ Grace JonesNightclubbing ... CD
Island, 1981. Used ... $2.99
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".

King Tubby & Roots RadicsDangerous Dub ... LP
Greensleeves (UK), 1981. New Copy ... $13.99
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".

Ijahman LeviWe Are A Warrior/Haile I Hymn ... CD
Island (Japan), 1978/1979. New Copy ... $23.99
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".

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 ... CD
Burning Sounds (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
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". CD

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".

RicoMan From Wareika ... LP
Blue Note, 1976. Very Good ... $29.99
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".

Black Ovation/Dub Mir, 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
An apocalyptic dub gem – one that features the Rhythm Twins teaming up with Scientist and Jimmy Riley – for a world-ending batch of extra-heavy proportions! By the time of this set, Scientist had solidified his position as the top contender for the heavyweight championship of dub – and he keeps up the heat with his spare dub renditions of some of Riley's finest rhythms – pushing Sly & Robbie way to the front of the mix, which gets no complaint from us! Winston Wright, Sky Juice, Skully Sims, Mikey Chung, Rad Bryan, Binkey Brice, Clive Hunt, Dean Fraser and Nambo Robinson all make appearances here and there – ducking in and out of the dubby maze of tracks – and titles include "Invasion Of Iraq", "Ethiopia Rock", "Zimbabwe Dub", "Dub Overation", "united Jam Dub", "Jah Instruction", "World At War", "Iran Revolution", and "Monkey Spanner".

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.

Emanem (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... $11.99
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
