Moonlight Party
Dub Store (Japan), Early 60s. New Copy
Sweet jazzy soul instrumentals from Jamaica – mellow, moonlight numbers by vibes player Lennie Hibbert and an amazing group Carribbean players – one of his earliest, if not the earliest records as a leader! Coming in the early 60s, there's a wonderful Afro-Carribbean jazzy soul vibe at ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pressure Sounds (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
Mindblowing sounds from the great Bunny Lee – and exactly the kind of collection that makes us love the Pressure Sounds label so much! The track selection is wonderful – and most numbers are balanced in a unique space between reggae and rocksteady, and often have some crucial ... CD

Pressure Sounds (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2LP
A wealth of rare tracks from the archives of Jamaican producer Bunny "Striker" Lee – tracks pulled from one-off dubplates mixed direct from the studio, and other unreleased tracks pulled from never-heard master tapes too! The music here definitely lives up to Lee's production ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pressure Sounds (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2LP
An incredible set of low rolling, hypnotic dub genius from true reggae Revolutionaries – a batch of amazing tunes centered around the amazing drums of Sly Dunbar – cut in the mid-to-late 70s height of the Channel One groove! This might be the strongest collection of dubs that Pressure ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mek It Run
Pressure Sounds (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP
Fresh dubs of rare tracks by Dennis Bovell – all redone recently, but with a vibe that's right up there with the best of classic Kingston! The package has a fascinating origin – in that Bovell had a recent medical ban on playing the bass, so decided to turn the clock back, dig up some ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pressure Sounds (UK), 1970s/1980s. New Copy 2LP
Pressure Sounds does it again, with another fine collection of mighty, mighty dub!

Heavy Metal Dub
Clocktower, 1982. New Copy (reissue)
No heavy metal here – but definitely some classic dub from Scientist – who's much more in love with the sound of an echoey bassline than any sort of freaky fuzz guitar! Tunes are beautifully spare – which allows for lots of spacey interplay between the few instruments used to ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
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

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

Soul Rebels
Trojan, 1970. New Copy (reissue)
A nice collection of early Bob Marley & The Wailers singles – all produced by Lee Perry! The music's a great meeting of two important reggae talents – quite different than both in later years, especially Marley – as the music has a great rawness that would get glossed over in ...

Rasta Revolution
Trojan (UK), 1974. New Copy
A sweet set of sides cut by the Wailers under Lee Perry's production. Crucial early roots versions of some of Marley's strongest material, like "Mr. Brown", "Soul Rebel", "Duppy Conqueror", and "400 Years" rendered in a raw Kingston soul style! Give us this ... LP, Vinyl record album

Federal/Dub Store, 1960. New Copy
Not the usual sort of reggae or rocksteady you might expect from the Jamaican scene in the 60s – but instead a brilliant set of jazz work that shows the roots of so many styles to come! The work here isn't straight jazz – as in an American mode – but the group does have a sextet ... CD

Far & Distant
Federal/Dub Store (Japan), 1974. New Copy
Wicked guitar work from Willie Lindo – spun out here over an all-instrumental set that almost feels more like Jamaican records of the late 60s than you'd guess from the mid 70s date of the album! The grooves are definitely more 70s – certainly with a strong reggae current – but ... CD

Voice Of Jamaica (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
A killer collection of cuts recorded at the legendary Randy's Studio 17 – located at 17 North Parade in Kingston – an address you might recognize from its recent use for a great series of reissues! This set goes right back to the heart of the Randy's sound – and brings together ... CD

On-U Sound (UK), 1986. New Copy (reissue)
The title and cover definitely get the vibe of the record right – as African Head Charge continue to go off the beaten track with their unique blend of sounds! In the generation before downtempo, these guys were pretty darn unique – and key forerunners in blending together rootsy ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mod Mod Ranglin
Federal/Dub Store (Japan), 1966. New Copy
One of those key 60s records that reminds us why Ernest Ranglin's always been one of the most unique talents on the electric guitar – partly a jazzman, and partly a formative force in the early sound of rocksteady and reggae on the Jamaican scene – as you'll hear on this sweet ... CD

Peace & Love
Dug Out (UK), 1974. New Copy (reissue)
Hypnotic, spiritually resonant music from Rastafarian singer & hand drummer Ras Michael's Dadawah – with these organic, echoey, atmospheric drums, bass and trippy bits of keyboards – providing a strong, spacious backdrop for the freedom-seeking lyricism! It's very unique stuff, ... LP, Vinyl record album
