Dub Landing Volume 1 (with bonus CD)
Dub Mir, 1981/1982. New Copy (reissue)
A dub landing of massive proportions – served up here on some classic early 80s work by Scientist, who's really making magic in the studio with the sounds of the Roots Radics Band! The tunes are stark, sharp, and very focused – and at some level, the mixologist is maybe keeping himself ... LP, Vinyl record album
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s. New Copy
Soulful sounds from the legendary Studio One – music from a time when the Jamaican scene was taking some strong cues from the American soul scene of the 60s, but coming up with a unique groove of their own! As proof of that fact, some of the work here is based on original American soul tunes ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Soulful sounds from the legendary Studio One – music from a time when the Jamaican scene was taking some strong cues from the American soul scene of the 60s, but coming up with a unique groove of their own! As proof of that fact, some of the work here is based on original American soul tunes ... LP, Vinyl record album
Attack/Radiation Roots (Italy), Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)
Augustus Pablo at his trippy best – blowing the melodica over a host of sweet dubby rhythms all produced by Bunny Lee! In the hands of Pablo, the instrument seems like it was made to be used best in dub – as the "wind piano" has this sound that's as personal and mystical as ... LP, Vinyl record album
King Tubby Meets The Aggrovators At Dub Station
Trojan/Radiation Roots (Italy), 1975. New Copy (reissue)
A classic blend of saxophone and dub – one that shows just how much big the shift in Jamaican production styles was during the 70s! In the previous decade, reedman Tommy McCook was right on top of the mix on most of his performances – echoing the tenors of American R&B and soul ... LP, Vinyl record album
Grounation (3LP set)
Dub Store (Japan), 1972. New Copy 3LP Gatefold (reissue)
An amazing record, and one of the most spiritual, righteous sets to ever come from Jamaica in the 70s – and that's saying a heck of a lot, given that scene at the time! The vibe here is really rootsy, and almost more spiritual jazz than reggae – with lots of spare percussion from Count ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dub Store (Japan), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
An incredible first chapter of the solo career of Bunny Wailer – material recorded during the same time as the rise of the larger Wailers trio, but which has a special sort of vibe overall – a quality that maybe even predates some of the righteous sounds that Bob Marley would give the ... LP, Vinyl record album
ABC Rocksteady
Gay Feet/Dub Store (Japan), Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)
A great showcase for the instrumental talents of Jamaican saxophonist Roland Alphonso – one of the key players who helped transform the sound of the scene in the 60s! But despite Roland's name on the front, the album's more of a group affair overall – directed by Boris Gardinier, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
On-U Sound/Hot Milk (UK), Early 80s. New Copy 4CD
A fantastic package of work from the legendary On-U Sound label – four of the most important early albums on the label – from a time when the imprint was completely revolutionizing the influence of Jamaican music on the British scene! All of the albums were produced by Adrian Sherwood ... CD
Derrick Harriott Rock Steady 1966 to 1969
Crystal/Dub Store (Japan), Late 60s. New Copy
A double-length set that really digs deep into the rich array of sounds that Derrick Harriott brought to Jamaican music in the late 60s – not just cuts he recorded under his own name, but work by some of his contemporaries that were done with Derrick's help – served up here as one of ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2 CDs
A fantastic overview of sounds from the Jamaican scene in the years before rocksteady and ska really took off – most of them from the hands of groundbreaking producer Clement "Coxone" Dodd – later the driving force behind Studio One! In these early years, Dodd already had ... CD
Dub Factor
Mango/Island, 1983. New Copy
CD...$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 ... CD
Orthodox Dub
Roots International/Dub Store (Japan), 1978. New Copy (reissue)
There's nothing orthodox about this 70s dub gem from Erroll Brown – as the album's an unusual set from start to finish – even in an era when so many dub records were being produced! There's an extra-raw sound to the whole thing – which might be hinted at by its cover image – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Skatalites & Friends At Randy's
VP, Early 60s. New Copy
Excellent work from the earliest years of The Skatalites – a time when the group were one of the sharpest things going in Jamaican music, and also added musical support to a number of singers as well! This killer collection brings together the hippest singles from the combo – work that' ... CD
Island, 1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
One of the best-selling albums ever from Bob Marley – a classic collection of work from his all-too-short career – and one that's gone onto become as famous as Marley's individual records themselves! The collection really allows all the classics to resonate strongly, in a track order ... LP, Vinyl record album
Money Maker (with bonus download)
Studio One, 1970. New Copy (reissue)
The album may not have been much of a Money Maker for Studio One Records – given that it's one of the rarest in their catalog – but it stands as a key illustration of the label's genius, and just how far away they were from most of their contemporaries! The set's a bit of a split ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dub Store (Japan), 1966/1967. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Fantastic sounds from the rocksteady years in Jamaica – tracks that are a fair bit more rare and obscure than some of the bigger singles that circulated at the time – even though they feature a fair bit of the same artists and musicians! The work here all came from the studios of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dub Store (Japan), Mid 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Fantastic sounds from the rocksteady years in Jamaica – tracks that are a fair bit more rare and obscure than some of the bigger singles that circulated at the time – even though they feature a fair bit of the same artists and musicians! The work here all came from the studios of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dub Store (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
The title certainly gets it right – as Derrick Harriott serves up a wonderful mix of sounds that owes plenty to American funk and soul of the early 70s – some cool Kingston covers of famous US tunes, and some other originals that are equally groovy overall! The set's one of the best ... LP, Vinyl record album
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A legendary collection of rare Jamaican grooves – the first-ever reggae compilation from Soul Jazz Records – and a mighty dip into the huge catalog of Studio One! The collection's over a dozen years old, but it's still incredibly crucial – and this re-presentation gets new ... LP, Vinyl record album
