Sly & RobbieDub Sessions 1978 to 1985 ... LP
Jamaican Recordings (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $15.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sly & RobbieLanguage Barrier ... LP
Island, 1985. Used ... 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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the original inner sleeve.)

✨✧ AswadNew Chapter Of Dub ... CD
Island/Mango, 1982. Used ... $6.99
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". CD

✨✧ Black UhuruDub Factor ... CD
Mango/Island, 1983. Used ... $5.99
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 ... $4.99
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!

Earth & StoneKool Roots ... LP
Pressure Sounds (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $23.99 24.98
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".

Serge GainsbourgL'Essential Des Albums Studio – 14 Albums Originaux 1958 to 1987 (12 CD set) ... CD
Universal (France), Late 50s/1960s/1970s/1980s. New Copy 12CD ... $36.99
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.

Gregory IsaacsSlum In Dub ... CD
Burning Sounds/Secret (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $16.99
Gregory Isaacs' name is on the cover – but the dub component here means that there's maybe a bit less vocals in the mix – as the album's the dub companion to Gregory's late 70s classic Cool Ruler! This set is much more focused on the excellent instrumental work – laid down by the Revolutionaries, with rhythms from Sly & Robbie, and keyboards from Ansel Collins – all mixed beautifully by a young Prince Jammy, at King Tubby's studio! The use of echo and odd electric bits at the edges is completely sublime – and titles include "Slum", "Reform Institution", "Tam Tam", "Leaving", "Public Eyes", and "Leggo Beast". CD

✨✧ Ijahman LeviWe Are A Warrior/Haile I Hymn ... CD
Island (Japan), 1978/1979. New Copy ... $23.99
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".

Deeper Knowledge, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
The crew that not only invented the Rockers sound, but dominated the Jamaican music scene for nearly a decade should need no introduction from us, and this album showcases them at their best, going to town in fine dub form at Channel One. Sly and Robbie, Santa Davis, Ranchie McLean, Fully Fullwood, Rad Bryan, Tony Chin, Chinna Smith, Ansel Collins, Ossie Hibbert, Tarzan, Touter Harvey, Sticky, Barnabas, Sky Juice, Herman Marquis, Tommy McCook, Don D Junior and BobbyEllis are in the lineup and Ernest Hookim and Barnabas dub up the Joseph Hookim productions. 10 tracks in all, including "Tension", "Pressure", "Strain", "Severe","Rigid", "Intense", "Retribution", "Drastic", "Energy" and "Urgency".

Mango, 1988. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A late 80s Taxi Gang production by Sly & Robbie with the slicker digital sound they were working in at that time, though they never lost their edge even when they got this polished. While Thompson was mostly known as a producer in the Dancehall genre, he does a fine job here singing on the Rhythm Twins' tracks. Includes "Poor Man", "Starlight", "Soon Come", "Looks Like It's Gonna Rain" and "Huff & Puff". LP, Vinyl record album

Bernie WorrellFunk Of Ages ... CD
Gramavision, 1990. Used ... $8.99
Maybe not the funk of ages, but a mighty nice solo set from Bernie Worrell – done at a key stretch when he was working away from George Clinton and the P-Funk universe! The set's got Bernie opening up in a blend of jazz and funk – and some tracks feature lead vocals, in a style that takes off from his earlier solo album on Arista, but tuned here with a bit more of that electro vibe that the Gramavision album was doing so well at the time! Bernie handles much of the music himself, but there's plenty of key guests on the record too – rhythms from Sly & Robbie, more keyboards from Herbie Hancock, guitar from Keith Richards and Vernon Reid, and seven some backing vocals from David Byrne and other old associates from the P-Funk years. Titles include "Straight Ahead", "Sing", "Don't Piss Me Off", "Ain't She Sweet", "V Spy", "BW Jam", "Volunteered Slavery/Bern's Blues/Outerspaceways", and "Beware Of Dog". CD

✨✧ VariousUptown Top Ranking – Joe Gibbs Reggae Productions 1970-1978 ... CD
Trojan, 1970s. Used ... $13.99
All you need to do is look at the list of artists included on the front cover of this compilation, and you know it's no lightweight. 23 chubby Joe Gibbs fueled by his crack rhyhthm team, the Professionals, featuring Sly & Robbie, Chinna Smith, Gladdy Anderson and Sticky Thompson, backing everyone from Big Youth to Althea & Donna to Dennis Brown to Max Romeo. The all star list here is due in no small part to the fact that Gibbs was largely responsible for bringing to larger light many of the finest talents in Jamaican music, on both sides of the console, as he was also responsible for many of the productions that would steer the course of reggae during the golden era of the mid 70s. Includes the Heptones "I've Got A Feeling", Peter Tosh "Maga Dog", Joe Gibbs & The Love Generation "Fat Dog", Big Youth "Forman Vs. Frazier", Augustus Pablo "African Queen", Leo Graham "A Win Them", Sylford Walker "Burn Babylon", the Mighty Diamonds "Ghetto Living", Prince Far I "Heavy manners", Junior Byles "Heart & Soul" and Dennis Brown "Moey In My Pocket".

RevolutionariesBurning Dub ... LP
Burning Sounds (UK), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... About June 10, 2016
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

✨✧ Desmond DekkerBlack & Dekker – The Complete Stiff Recordings 1980 to 1983 (Black & Dekker/Compass Point/bonus tracks) ... CD
Stiff/Pressure Drop (UK), Early 80s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The complete Stiff Records work of Desmond Dekker – served up here on two albums, plus bonus tracks too! First up is Black & Dekker – surprisingly great later work from the legendary Desmond Dekker – a set that should have been a sloppy cash-in during the ska revival, but material that shows Desmond still very much at the top of his game! The production and backings show a bit of a late 70s British touch, but Dekker's vocals are still very much his own – and the tunes really faithfully stay in the groove that made him so great in the first place. Titles include "Israelites", "Lickin' Stick", "It Mek", "Please Don't Bend", "Many Rivers To Cross", "Hippo", "Juliet", "007", "Work It Out", "Problems", "Rude Boy Train", "Pickney Gal" and "Why Fight". On the Compass Point album, Desmond Dekker gets a bit of a contemporary groove – working at the Compass Point studios, in a mode that inflects his early ska roots with some hip early 80s production touches too! The approach still has all the charm of Dekker's classic recordings, but brings in some of the more offbeat elements of the Sly & Robbie generation – in a Compass Point mode that's never too trippy or self-indulgent, but which definitely adds just the right bits to keep things interesting. Titles include "Isabella", "Hurts So Bad", "We Can & Shall", "Big Headed", and "That's My Woman". CD features bonus tracks "Workout (groove version)", "Hot City", "Book Of Rules", and "That's My Woman (rmx)". CD

Universal (Italy), 1980. New Copy (pic cover)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two great numbers from Grace's Warm Leatherette album, with Sly & Robbie in full effect! Grace's presence is as commanding as ever out front, while Sly & Robbie inject a good dose of bouncing reggae vibes into both numbers, which really want to be disco, but are more disco-not-disco, and sublimely so. Her rendering Joy Division's "She's Lost Control" is especially surreal, and both are here in long and dub versions. 12-inch, Vinyl record

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".
