Planet Mars Dub
Virgin/Universal (Japan), 1975. New Copy
A Mighty Diamonds album at the core, but one that often pushes the group's vocals off to the side – to allow for plenty of dubby interplay in the instrumentation! The real stars of the set are a Compass Point lineup with drums by Sly Dunbar and horns by Tommie McCook – all mixed and ... CD

Trojan, Mid 70s. New Copy
A dub collection, done the Trojan way – not throwaway tracks from unused studio sessions, or dusty dub plates – but the kind of cuts that made Trojan such a great label back in the day – and a continuing influence on later styles from punk, to indie rock, to dubstep! The bottom ... LP, Vinyl record album

Shakedown
ALA, 1960s. Very Good
Early Leslie Kong produced sides of groovy rocksteady, voiced by a young Bob Marley, dug up and re-released after he became an international reggae phenomenon. While this clearly an attempt to cash in on his success, it's still some really great early stuff, and nice to have on vinyl, too! 10 ... LP, Vinyl record album

Limb By Limb
VP/17 North Parade, Late 70s. Used 2 CDs
A blistering onslaught of ragga and lyrical butchery from one of the most dangerous men to ride the mic through the yards and dancehalls of Kingston! Sure there's a few moments of consciousness and lover's easiness in between the gun talk and slackness, but the digital bounce is as unrelenting as ... CD

Jezebel/Just In Time
Island (Japan), 1976/1978. New Copy

Island (Japan), 1978/1979. New Copy
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. ...

More Gregory/Night Nurse
Island (Japan), 1981/1982. New Copy
Choice early 80s material from the Cool Ruler, bundling together two great albums, which in our sightly slanted view, represent some of his best sides! Sweet and sultry lover's rock with a mad groove laid down by the Roots Radics band, and Gregory crooning away over top. Includes the classic ... CD

Virgin (Japan), 1979. New Copy
Excellent side of the Diamonds' nice harmonies riding hard stepping rockers rhythms! The Diamonds were never shy about borrowing from the sounds that were hot in cities across the shores, like Detroit or Chicago, and they sound great over these driving cuts, which are served up in bonus dub ... CD

Mango/Universal (Japan), 1976. New Copy
Two mighty albums by the famous Dub Organiser – back to back on a single CD! CB 200 is a straight up classic – one of his first LPs to break large on the international scene, and certainly one of the first Dee Jay records to do so! Channel One Hoo Kim production features the Ragnam ... CD

Island (Japan), 1976. New Copy
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. ...

Elektra, 1982. Very Good 2LP Gatefold
