✨✧ King Sunny AdeAura ... CD
Island, 1984. Used ... Out Of Stock
The third and tightest of Ade's albums for Island. The sound here is a hybrid of his Ju Ju style with a bit of Afrobeat thrown in, with Tony Allen guesting on one number. The percolating multi-guitar and talking drum sound that was Ade's signature keeps the set gliding along nicely. 6 longer ... (Global Grooves) read more CD

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 ... (Reggae) read more CD

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 ... (Reggae) read more CD

Burning SpearMan In The Hills ... CD
Island, 1976. Used ... $4.99
The vital follow up to the crucial Marcus Garvey set, and the second collaboration between Burning Spear and producer Jack Ruby.

✨✧ Burning SpearMarcus Garvey ... LP
Mango/Island, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An absolute classic! Burning Spear's Marcus Garvey is truly one of the greatest reggae albums of its time, one where the words are crucial and conscious, and the overall vibe is strongly defined by the arrangements of Winston Rodney. A landmark roots effort and an easy choice for our list of the ... (Reggae) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Manu DibangoAfrovision ... LP
Island, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A funky gem from reedman Manu Dibango – a set recorded hot on the heels of his huge Soul Makossa hit, and done with a similar blend of African roots and 70s funk! The main focus here is on the instrumentation – not just Manu's saxophone lines, but also some great keyboards too – ... (Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Island, 1996. New Copy 3 CDs ... $39.99 49.98
Massive 20th Anniversary edition of DJ Shadow's masterpiece! It seems like when this came out, critics and even DJs liked to drop the then new moniker "trip hop" whenever possible, and this pivotal album is held up as the watershed mark. A number of years down the line, Endtroducing ... (Hip Hop) read more CD

Will DowningCome Together As One ... LP
Island/Verve, 1989. Very Good+ ... $1.99
Will Downing sounds wonderful here on this late 80s set – standing out instantly from most of his contemporaries, with a deep-toned, classic vocal approach that's simply tremendous! Even though some of the backings smack of 80s mainstream production, there's a depth here that goes beyond ... (Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Nick DrakeFive Leaves Left (180 gram pressing with download) ... LP
Island, 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Godlike work from the legendary Nick Drake – and exactly the kind of record that's made him a continuing legend over the years! The style is completely its own – not really folk or rock, but not really jazz either – yet served up with plenty of jazzy phrasing that's helped keep ... (Rock) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Island/Hannibal, 1972. Used ... $3.99
A beautiful treasure from the legendary Nick Drake – the last album he ever recorded – and a set that may well be his most personal as well! The sound here is even more stripped-down than before – often just vocals and acoustic guitar, but used together in ways that are really ... (Rock) read more CD

✨✧ Eric B & RakimPaid In Full (with bonus remixes) ... CD
Island, 1986. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Paid In Full, indeed. Eric B & Rakim's seminal album still pays off in so many ways, and it was such a vital link between the party rockin' style of the old school and the terse, hard-hitting beats and rhymes of what was then the new school, we can't even come up with the words for the praise ...
