Sly & RobbieRhythm Killers ... CD
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

✨✧ Sly & RobbieLanguage Barrier ... CD
Island (Japan), 1985. New Copy ... 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.

Serge GainsbourgAux Armes Et Caetera ... CD
Philips (France), 1979. Used ... $4.99
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
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 ... $5.99
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

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 ... 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".

Grace JonesSlave To The Rhythm ... CD
Island, 1985. Used ... $5.99
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". CD

Frankie PaulTidal Wave ... LP
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.

✨✧ 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".

RicoWareika Dub (aka Warrika Dub) ... LP
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".

✨✧ 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 ... CD
EMI, 1979. Used ... $6.99
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".

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". CD

VariousJustice Dub – Rare Dubs From Justice Records 1975 to 1977 ... CD
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".

Sly and Robbie, plus Horsemouth and Boo Richards, Micky Chung, Chinna Smith, Clive Hunt and Geoffrey Chung are among their erstwhile co-conspirators on this self produced gem. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ AswadNew Chapter Of Dub ... LP
Mango, 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A New Chapter, indeed! New Chapter In Dub is one of Aswad's definitely one of his best records of the early 80s – and it's actually right up there with some of his best work, period. The title is an apt one, as it leads the way for modern dub – serving as a blueprint of what would become the On-U Sound – which in turn influenced the whole digi-dub movement. Like the Sly & Robbie dub sets of the same period, this massive record combines fierce rhythms with space age dub techniques. Incredible! Includes "Dub Fire", "Flikaflame", 'Truth", "Bammie Blow", "Tuffist", "Shining Dub", "Zion I", "Natural Aggression" and "Ghetto In The Sky". LP, Vinyl record album
(US pressing. Cover has a small mark from sticker removal and some wear on the opening.)
