✨✧ Sly & RobbieRhythm Killers ... CD
Island (Japan), 1987. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

Black UhuruBlack Sounds Of Freedom ... LP
Greensleeves, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $10.99
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".

Jimmy CliffFollow My Mind ... LP
Reprise, 1975. Very Good ... $6.99
Strange & sublime reggae from Jimmy Cliff, cut during his mid 70s turn with Warner Brothers. A little more than half of the record was cut in Jamaica at Channel One and Tubby's, and features a cast of Jamaican greats like Sly & Robbie, Horsemouth, Ranchie and Prince Buster, but there's a number of cuts recorded in LA with Van Dyke Parks, Dennis Coffey and Jim Gilstrap among others. Jimmy's sweet alto sounds great throughout, and adapts just as well to the slick LA tracks as the rootsy Jamaican ones. Includes "I'm Gonna Live, I'm Gonna Love", "Who Feels It, Knows It", "Remake The World" and "You're The Only One". LP, Vinyl record album
(NOTE – This copy is a test pressing without printed artist/title info, identifiable by matrix number, in a plain white sleeve.)

Ian DuryLord Upminster ... LP
Polydor, 1981. Very Good ... $3.99
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 (expanded 2CD set) ... CD
Universal (France), 1979. Used 2 CDs ... $13.99
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!

Serge GainsbourgAux Armes Et Caetera EP (with download) ... LP
Philips (France), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
Serge Gainsbourg reinvents "La Marseillaise" into a surprisingly great reggae groover – heard here in a host of mixes that further expand on its original genius! The 1979 recording was done at Dynamic Sounds in Kingston – with help from Sly & Robbie, and a host of top shelf talents – all with this dubby rhythm that's totally wonderful – and the single features an added dub mix of the tune, plus a DJ version that has Big Youth singing vocals, and a further dub of that version too! LP, Vinyl record album

Serge GainsbourgL'Essential Des Albums Studio – 14 Albums Originaux 1958 to 1987 (12 CD set) ... CD
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.

Gilberto GilKayangandaya ... CD
Warner (Brazil), 2002. Used ... $1.99
A strange little record from Gilberto Gil – an album of reggae tracks, mostly by Bob Marley, recorded in Kingston at the Tuff Gong Studios, with help from the Rita Marley, Marcia Griffiths, Judy Mowatt, Sly & Robbie, and others. The record's actually pretty nice – a good blend of the dub-heavy sounds of Jamaica, with some of the rougher soul stylings that Gil was crafting in earlier years – a combination that shouldn't work, but which does nicely. Titles include "Positive Vibration", "One Drop", "Waiting In Vain", "Could You Be Loved", "Rebel Music", "Easy Skankin", "Turn Your Lights Down Low", and "Lick Samba". CD

✨✧ IjahmanAre We A Warrior/Haile I Hymn ... CD
Island (Japan), 1978/1979. New Copy ... $13.99
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".

InturnsConsider Yourself (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Pressure Sounds (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
Soulful harmonies-laded Jamaican music from The Inturns – who also recorded as The Viceroys and with other monikers from the mid 60s onward – and are really in peak form here in the later 70s! It's beautiful stuff, with rhythmsthat balance a rawer grit with a lighter touch – laid down at Channel One by Sly & Robbie, Ansell Collins, Skully Sims and other prime scene players – but it's really the soul-steeped vocals that carry the vibe here. The Pressure Sounds pedigree for underappreciated archival reggae continues to blow us away! Includes "Send Us", "Consider Yourself", "Detour", "Jah Ho Jah", "Nothing Is Impossible", "Get To Know", "Do We Have To Fight", "Sing A Good Song", and "Jah Ho". CD also includes the bonus 12" mixes of "Nothing Is Impossible" and "Detour". CD

Grace JonesNightclubbing (2CD deluxe version) ... CD
Island (UK), 1981. New Copy 2CD ... $34.99
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". 2CD set is filled with great bonus material – 13 more titles that include "Me I Disconnect From You", "Use Me (long version)", "Demolition Man (12" version)", "Pull Up To The Bumper (long version)", "Walking In The Rain (12" version)", "I've Seen That Face Before (12" version)", "Peanut Butter (inst)", "I You Wanna Be My Lover", "Feel Up (ext rmx)", "Pull Up To The Bumper (1985 rmx)", and "Esta Cara Me Es Conocida".

✨✧ Grace JonesSlave To The Rhythm ... LP
Island, 1985. Very Good- ... $2.99
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

Johnny OsborneWater Pumping ... LP
Greensleeves, 1983. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99
A tremendous effort early 80s effort from Johnny Osbourne! The title tune a straight up early 80s dancehall classic, and the rest of the record holds up very well after all these year. Sly and Robbie are on the rhythms, along with other top notch players from Prince Jammy's stable, plus some distinctive bits of electric strings and some soulful backing vocals that give it a unique vibe. Greatness! Includes the classic title cut, "Fire Down Below", "Trouble Maker", "Dance With You", "Rolling Reggae", "Love You Tonight", "Na Look Nobody", "Purify Your Heart", "Get Up" and "Angel In My Arms".

Frankie PaulTidal Wave ... LP
Greensleeves, 1985. New Copy (reissue)... $8.99 13.98
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.

✨✧ RicoMan From Wareika (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Island (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $13.99
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".

✨✧ RicoWarrika Dub – Ghetto Rockers ... CD
Island (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $13.99
A sweet dub companion to Rico's excellent Man From Wareika album. The original LP 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, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".
