Sly & RobbiePresent Taxi ... LP
Mango, 1981. Near Mint- ... $29.99
Compilation of tracks produced by Sly & Robbie just as they were getting the Taxi gang started and stepping out as producers in their own right, at the dawn of the Dancehall era. The rhythm tracks are top notc –, and in a lot of ways, this is our favorite period for these 2 reggae greats. They've gathered some amazing vocalists together, including Gregory Isaacs, Junior Delgado, the Wailing Souls & Dennis Brown. 12 tracks in all, including the Tamlins version of "Smiling Faces Sometimes", Dennis Brown "Sitting 7 Watching", Sly's "Hot Your Hot", Wailing Souls "Old Broom" Gregory Isaacs "Oh What A Feeling" & Jr. Delgado's "Merry Go Round".

✨✧ VariousSly & Robbie Present – Taxi Gang In Disco Mix Style 1977 to 1987 ... CD
Cree (Germany), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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.

✨✧ Sly & The Revolutionaries with Jah ThomasBlack Ash Dub (180 gram orange vinyl pressing) ... LP
Trojan/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The mighty Sly Dunbar, working here on drums, in some very heady company – a wicked dub-heavy group that includes longtime partner Robbie Shakespear on bass – plus Gladdy Anderson on piano, Ansel Collins on organ, and Bingy Bunny and Bo Peep on guitars! The music is raw and stripped-down – produced by Jah Thomas at Channel One, mixed by Prince Jammy at King Tubby's – but with a rock-solid vibe that grabs you musically in a way that all of these many references hardly do justice! At a time when Sly was breaking big in the mainstream, working on lots of imported productions too, the groove is still very down to earth, and back to the amazing sound that he and his confreres first brought to the Kingston scene much earlier in the 70s. All the songs are titled in tribute to intoxicating substances –and include "Marijuana", "Herb", "Collie", "Lambsbread", "Rizla", "Acapulco Gold", "Black Ash", "White Rum", "Cocaine", and "LSD".

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.

Black UhuruAnthem ... LP
Mango, 1982. Very Good ... $7.99
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". 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

✨✧ Serge GainsbourgAux Armes Et Caetera (expanded 2CD set) ... CD
Universal (France), 1979. Used 2 CDs ... $8.99
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!

Tommy McCookReggae In Jazz ... CD
Pressure Sounds (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $9.99 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- ... $16.99
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".

Peter ToshMama Africa ... CD
EMI, 1983. Used ... $6.99
One of the better late solo efforts from the former Wailer, with him toning down the politics a bit and falling back into a mellow groove. There's some nice backing vocals courtesy the Tamlins, and some nice rhythms courtesy Santa Davis, Gibby Morrison and Sly and Robbie. Includes "Mama Africa", "Glasshouse", "Maga Dog", "Where You Gonna Run", "Peace Treaty", and his cover of "Johnny B Goode". CD

Peter ToshMystic Man ... LP
Rolling Stones, 1979. Very Good ... $11.99
A great late 70s album from former Wailer Tosh, to our ears a good bit better than Bush Doctor, the set that had preceded it. We're guessing that has a lot to do with the smoking Word, Sound & Power band Tosh recruited to deliver the chugging riddims underneath his militant lyrics, which featured Sly & Robbie as the foundation, plus guest that include Sticky and Skully peppering the proceedings with some nice rootical percussion, and backing vocals from the Tamlins and stateside friends Gwen Guthrie, Yvonne Lewis and Brneda White. 9 tracks in all: "Mystic Man", "Recruiting Soldiers", "Can't You See", "Jah She No", "Fight On", "Buk-In-Hamm Palace", "The Day The Dollar Die", "Crystal Ball" and "Rumours Of War".

A great early 80s roots side from Bunny Wailer, recorded in tribute to his old band mate Marley. The set features Wailer performing Marley tunes, with a heavyweight band behind him that includes Sly Dunbar, Robbie Shakespeare, Errol Holt, Sowell, Keith Sterling, Dean Fraser, Headly Bennett and Uziah Thompson. Wailer's versions of these tunes are nicely rendered, and include "Soul Rebel", "I Shot The Sherriff", "Crazy Bald Head", "Time Will Tell", "War", "Slave Driver", "Redemption Song" and "No Woman No Cry".

Pretty nice later work from Grace!

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

✨✧ Bernie WorrellFunk Of Ages ... CD
Gramavision, 1990. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

Includes "Chill Out", "Darkness", "Wicked Act", "Emotional Slaughter" and "Right Stuff". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gwen GuthriePadlock – Special Mixes By Larry Levan ... LP
Island, 1983. Used ... Out Of Stock
A mini-LP, but one that packs more punch than most full length sets – thanks to a top-shelf lineup all the way through! The set's a project put together by Sly & Robbie, and recorded at Compass Point Studios – all with a groove that's kind of a dubbier take on the sound of New York dancefloors a the time – nicely bassy, slightly beaty, and topped with some really wonderful vocals from Gwen Guthrie! Larry Levan mixed the whole thing to perfection, giving it a real Paradise groove – and instrumentation is by Wally Badarou on synth, Harry Whitaker on keyboards, Darryl Thompson on guitars, and Jimmy Maelin on percussion. The set's kind of a mini-suite, based around a few key musical themes – and titles include "Padlock", "Hopscotch", "Seventh Heaven", "Peanut Butter" and "Getting Hot". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ RevolutionariesBurning Dub (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Burning Sounds (UK), 1979. Used (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Johnny ClarkeSatisfaction ... CD
Radiation Roots, 1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ 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 2 CDs ... 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
