Easy Skanking In Boston 78
Island, 1978. New Copy
A never-issued live performance from Bob Marley – and a much-needed addition to his classic 70s catalog! The set captures Marley in his prime – working before an enthusiastic venue, but with a sound that's as sharp as any of his studio recordings – from the rhythms right on up to ... CD

Dub Factor
Mango, 1983. Near Mint-
One of our top 10 dub albums of all time! This LP 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 ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cloak & Dagger
Justice League/Orchid (UK), 1979. Near Mint- (reissue)
Sweet! One of the harder Scratch efforts to track down over the years, one we're always glad to come across! Recorded in the late 70s, when his wigged out follies at the Black Ark had reached their peak –though there's a bit of debate over whether these tracks were actually recorded at the ...

Pressure Sounds (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Near Mint- 2LP
A stunner! High Plains Drifter collects material from the mighty Lee Perry during the crucially creative and fertile period between 1968 & 1973 – in which he founded the Upsetter imprint and had some chart success. It was such a productive period, resulting in hundreds of singles and a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Attack/Jamaican Recordings (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy
The attack is sharp here, but the decay is what really moves us – that slow fade and spacey sound that makes classic dubs like this so great! The package pulls together lots of rare tracks from the Attack label of Bunny Lee – most with music by The Aggrovators, and a whole extra level ... CD

Liquidator
Trojan (UK), 1969. New Copy
An excellent set of rocksteady instrumentals by writer/producer Harry J and his Allstars – very much in a similar vein to classic Jackie Mittoo material, with a cool bubbling sound that's totally great! Recorded in 1969, steeped strongly in some of the finest reggae instrumental sounds of ... CD

Roots Of Dub
Jamaican Recordings (UK), 1974. New Copy (reissue)
The Roots Of Dub from The Dub Master – the one-and-only King Tubby – heard here in one of a trio of crucial records he cut in the mid 70s – all of which really helped define the sound of dub at the time! The production is wonderful – and the album rumbles with floor-shaking ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jamaican Recordings (UK), Late 70s. New Copy
A great collection of underground dub tracks from late 70s Jamaica – the kind of limited-run dub plates that would circulate between some of the bigger sound systems on the scene, and offer up radically trippy versions of better-known tunes! The set is heavy on echo and slow-stepping rhythms ... CD

Red
Mango, 1981. Near Mint-
One of our favorite Black Uhuru LPs, when they'd fully matured as a group under the production of Sly & Robbie, with a tight modern reggae sound that few other groups could match from that era. Heavy, heavy grooves saddled with the trios potent lyrics and harmony vocals, including the massive ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rolling Stones, 1981. Near Mint-
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
