✨✧ Sly & RobbieRhythm Killers ... CD
Island, 1987. Used ... $11.99
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".

✨✧ Amp Fiddler/Sly & RobbieInspiration Information Vol 1 ... CD
Strut (UK), 2008. Used ... Out Of Stock
An incredible meeting of talents – one we never would have expected in a million years, but which comes off beautifully throughout! The spacey genius of Amp Fiddler meets the Jamaican grooves of Sly & Robbie – in a blend that's breathtaking – one that takes all of Amp's crackling energy, and sets it up nicely against some warmer, more organic elements – great bass from Robbie, drums and programs from Sly, and additional guitar from Dalton Browne and percussion from Sticky Thompson! Amp Fiddler sings throughout – in that cool, spaced-out style of his we love so much – and the tunes have a really hypnotic, genre-crossing quality – right up there with that great 80s moment when Sly & Robbie were coming into play with a range of US and UK artists – with similarly groundbreaking results. Titles include "Crazy Day", "I Fell On The Wagon", "Drama Inside", "Blackhouse", "U", "Serious", "Vibrationship", "Changes", and "This World". CD

Sly & The Revolutionaries with Jah ThomasBlack Ash Dub (180 gram orange vinyl pressing) ... LP
Trojan/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
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".

Black UhuruDub Factor ... CD
Mango/Island, 1983. Used ... $3.99
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

Black UhuruSinsemilla ... CD
Mango/Island, 1980. Used ... $2.99
The follow up to the burning Showcase set and second LP finding the harmony trio of Michael Rose, Puma Jones and Duckie Simpson under the heavy guidance of Sly & Robbie. While it didn't produce as many singular hits as the preceding set or the following Red LP, this album's still solid from top to bottom, with mighty, might Taxi productions grooves throughout. 10 tracks in all: "Happiness", 'World Is Africa", "Push Push", "There Is Fire", "No Loafing (Sit & Wonder)", "Sinsemilla", "Endurance" and "Vampire", plus the added bonus tracks "Guess Who's Coming To Dinner (discomix)" and "Sinsemilla (discomix)", and newly remastered too!

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!

Gwen GuthriePadlock – Special Mixes By Larry Levan ... LP
Island, 1983. Very Good- ... $8.99
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

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

✨✧ Jackie MittooStriker Showcase ... CD
17 North Parade, Mid 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 21.98
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".

EMI, 1983. Used ... $1.99
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

✨✧ Grace JonesSlave To The Rhythm ... LP
Island, 1985. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Pretty nice later work from Grace! Although we prefer the percolating disco meets reggae records Grace Jones cut with Sly & Robbie to this later effort – but there's no denying that on a couple of numbers she really clicks with producer Trevor Horn's slick sheen. 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

✨✧ 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 ... Out Of Stock
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.

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

✨✧ Black UhuruAnthem ... LP
Mango, 1982. Used ... Out Of Stock
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".
