Sly & RobbieRhythm Killers ... LP
Island, 1987. Near Mint- ... $4.99
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 sublime as their finest and fattest. While on paper this Bill Laswell produced session that 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 result in a sum that's that's less than the combination of all the dope parts. But you could do a lot worse, and we're guessing if you heard any of these 6 tracks in a different context, you might well consider it the heat: "Fire", "Boops (Here to Go)", "Let's Rock", "Yes We Can Can", "Rhythm Killer" and "Bank Job".

✨✧ Sly & RobbieDub Sessions 1978 to 1985 ... CD
Jamaican Recordings (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

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.

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

Johnny ClarkeSatisfaction ... CD
Radiation Roots, 1979. New Copy ... $15.99
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". 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".

Gwen GuthriePadlock – Special Mixes By Larry Levan ... LP
Island, 1983. Near Mint- ... $19.99
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

Grace JonesLiving My Life ... LP
Island, 1982. Very Good ... $4.99
One of Grace Jones' best albums – recorded at a point when she was really beginning to stretch the boundaries of club music, crossing over with the early 80s post-punk/post-disco crowd through a melange of sounds that was all her own. The oveblown diva mode of her disco years is gone by this point – and in its place is a wonderfully stripped down sound that bubbles with influences from reggae, post-punk, and elsewhere! The set was recorded in Nassau, with rhythm from Sly, Robbie, and Wally Badarou – and titles include a fair bit of original numbers penned with Barry Reynolds. Tracks include "Nipple To The Bottle", "My Jamaican Guy", "The Apple Stretching", "Cry Now, Laugh Later", and "Inspiration". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing with the heavy inner sleeve.)

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".

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".

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

Jackie MittooStriker Showcase ... LP
17 North Parade, Late 70s. New Copy ... About May 5, 2017 (delayed)
Massive music from Hammond legend Jackie Mittoo – working here over a host of dubby rhythms recorded by Bunny Striker Lee – in a set that's overflowing with great instrumentals! Jackie plays plenty of Hammond – as you've heard on his contributions to countless other Jamaican albums over the years – but he also picks up a very cool Solins string machine, and handles a few other keyboards too – all in a setting that features rhythms from Sly & Robbie, plus piano from Ansel Collins and Winston Wright, and some nice guitar lines from Chinna Smith! And while some of this material has been reissued over the years, this may well be the master package – as it features great sound, and a whopping 34 tracks in all – with titles that include "The Sniper", "Darker Shade Of Black", "Super Charge", "Death Trap", "Earthquake", "Atom Sounds", "Clean Up The Arena", "The Thriller", "A Rocking Sensation", "Merry Go Round", "Disco Jack", "Channel One CRash", and "Brain Mark".

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
