Sly & RobbieRhythm Killers ... CD CD format
Island (Japan), 1987. New Copy ... $13.99
We love Sly & Robbie – really we do! And while they were responsible for many of the toughest rhythms ever laid to wax, they did cut their share of material that hits nice and hard, but may not be as sublimely breezy. This Bill Laswell produced session finds the Rhythm Twins meeting up with an all star cast including Rammellzee, Bernie Worrell, Henry Threadgill and D. St. among others, it somehow manages to fully embrace the modern sound of the 80s, while still connected to a rootsier genetic materials – and given how prevelent 80s influences are in post-millenium popular music, its got quiet a prescient feel! Includes "Fire", "Boops (Here To Go)", "Let's Rock", "Yes We Can Can", "Rhythm Killer" and "Bank Job". CD

New Sly & RobbieLanguage Barrier ... CD CD format
Island (Japan), 1985. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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". CD

Polydor, 1981. Very Good+ ... $5.99
Ian Dury takes his spastic rhythm style to Jamaica, where he adds in Sly & Robbie to the mix, and gets produced by Chaz Jankel. Not his classic stuff, but pretty nice anyway. Tracks include "Spasticus (Autisticus)", "The (Body Song)", "Lonely (Town)", and "Funky Disco (Pops)". LP, Vinyl record album

Serge GainsbourgAux Armes Et Caetera ... CD CD format
Philips (France), 1979. Used ... $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". CD

Serge GainsbourgL'Essential Des Albums Studio – 14 Albums Originaux 1958 to 1987 (12 CD set) ... CD CD format
Philips/Universal (France), Late 50s/1960s/1970s/1980s. New Copy 12CD ... $52.99
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.

Grace JonesNightclubbing ... CD CD format
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".

One of Grace's best club tracks from the early 80s – a bubbling dubby track that was one of the fruits of her work with the team of Sly & Robbie! The track's backed by "JA Guys", which is a dubbed up version of "My Jamaican Guy" – sounding even nicer than the original! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Jamaican Recordings (UK), 1970s. Used ... $7.99
Treasures is right, and thank goodness they're not lost anymore! A fine reissue compilation of Bunny Lee rhythms, all touched with chattering echoplex drops and some thunderous reverb. The band is the Aggrovators, loaded with heavies like Carlton ann Aston Barrett, Sly & Robbie, Jackie Mittoo, Winston Wright and Tommy McCook. Almost all of these dubs are exclusive to this compilation, annotated to their original rhythms and the versions that these were voiced from. 14 tracks in all, including "Falling For Dub", "Dub On The Street Again", "Deceiving The Dub", Release The Dub", "Jumpers Dub" and "You Have Caught The Dub".

Frankie PaulTidal Wave ... LP LP format
Greensleeves, 1985. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99
Classic mid 80s dancehall from singer Frankie Paul and producer George Phang – with a vive that's rooted in soul, thanks in no small part to Frankie's sweetly emotional vocal approach – but it's done with lean, modern sound that's held up well over the years! The songs cut deep and Frankie sounds great, doing his thing over a crisp, but not overly glossy sound, with distinctive Sly & Robbie rhythms giving it a nice little bit of grit. Wonderful stuff – with "Dem A Go Feel It", "Beat Down The Fence", "Baby Come Home", "She's Got Soul", "Tidal Wave", "Your Love Is Amazing", "King Champion", "You Too Greedy", "Hold Me" and more.

RicoWareika Dub (aka Warrika Dub) ... LP LP format
Island, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
A sweet, classic dub companion to Rico's excellent Man From Wareika set. The original record was an instrumental affair to begin with, so this set reworks the mixes with the parts ducking in and out with a few tasteful dub effects added here and there to add a new dimension to the jazzed up reggae numbers. The group is pretty large, sort of a Jamaican all stars, with names like Sly & Robbie, Skully, and Dirty Harry, running through 9 dubs of tracks from the original album, including "Gunga Din Dub", "Lumumba Dub", "Over The Mountain Dub", "Dial Africa Dub", "Man From Wareika Dub", "Rasta Dub" and "This Day Dub".

Rolling Stones, 1981. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Like much of Tosh's work after leaving the Wailers, this album is a bit uneven, but still has a couple of nuggets of fiery roots rock. There's a crack band behind him on these self-produced tunes, with Sly & Robbie, Mikey Chung and Skully Sims. Includes "Nothing But Love", "The Poor Man Feel It", "Cold Blood", "Rastafari Is", "That's What They Will Do" and "Fools Die". LP, Vinyl record album

Willi WilliamsUnification – From Channel One To King Tubby's With Willi Williams & Yabby You ... CD CD format
Shanachie, 1979. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Righteous sounds from Willi Williams – a highly conscious set of roots reggae recorded at the end of the 70s – filled with powerful politics, but delivered in a laidback and very dubby style! Many of the rhythms come from Sly & Robbie – and have this stepping vibe that really paces things wonderfully – dipping a mellow groove that gives Williams plenty of space to spin out on the topic of each tune, while the music bristles with contributions from Jackie Mittoo, Cedric Brooks, and The Soul Syndicate! Production is by Willi and Yabby You – and titles include "Armagideon Man", "Unification", "Free Dem", "Righteousness", "One Destiny", and "Rally". CD

VariousJustice Dub – Rare Dubs From Justice Records 1975 to 1977 ... CD CD format
Jamaican Recordings (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $13.99
Very dubby dubs from the legendary Justice Records – tracks that are deeper, darker, and moodier than most mainstream iterations of the format at the time – that best take on music from dirt, served up with more than enough echo to send the instrumentation and vocals into some very abstract spaces! Musicians include Chinna smith on guitar, Ossie Hibbert on organ, Sly Dunbar on drums, and Robbie Shakespeare on bass – and dubs are based around tunes by Johnny Clarke, Horace Andy, Cornell Campbell, and others – with titles that include "A Version Of Class", "Jah Jah Dub", "Forward Dub", "Natty No Lie Version", "Don't Try To Dub 1", "A Thankful Dub", "A Confusion Version", and "Collie Version".

New Black UhuruBlack Sounds Of Freedom ... LP LP format
Greensleeves, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The debut album from the second lineup of Black Uhuru, with Duckie Simpson, Michael Rose and Errol Nelson. Produced by Prince Jammy, this is a tremendous slice of rootsy rockers, even if it doesn't quite top the later version of the group with Puma Jones and Sly & Robbie's production. This later Greensleeves edition was remixed by Jammy at Tubby's in 1981, and includes "Time To Unite", "Love Crisis", "Willow Tree", "African Love", "Eden Out Deh", "I Love King Selassie", "Hard Ground" and a great version of Marley's "Natural Mystic".

New Black UhuruDub Factor ... CD CD format
Mango/Island, 1983. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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". CD

New RicoMan From Wareika (with bonus tracks) ... CD CD format
Island (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... Temporarily 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".

Pressure Sounds (UK), 1970s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Nice Jamaican vocal harmony duo, produced by Jo Jo Hookim at Channel One, with a soulful sound and unique back and forth trading style. This set includes both more cultural roots numbers and a few lover's tunes, with beautiful harmonizing in the classic style of groups like the Mighty Diamonds or Wailers. As you might expect from a Channel One production, the rhythms are stellar, with Sly & Santa on drums, Gladdy on piano & organ by Ansell Collins, and Fully & Robbie on bass. 20 cuts, with a handful of dubs, including "False Ruler", "Once Bitten Twice Shy", "Black Roots" & "Jester Not".

New Gwen GuthriePadlock – Special Mixes By Larry Levan ... LP LP format
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
(Cover has heavy wear and creasing.)
