Federal/Dub Store (Japan), Late 60s. New Copy
A seminal set from the great Hopeton Lewis – and a record that not only firmly put the rocksteady sound on the map, but also paved the way for a rich tradition of reggae to come! The groove is nice and mellow – rhythmic on all numbers, but much more relaxed than the ska of a few years ... CD

Federal/Dub Store (Japan), 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

Black Ark Years – The Jamaican 7 Inches
Trojan (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 2CD
Some of the greatest work ever recorded by the mighty Lee Perry – a searing selection of 44 seven inch singles – all of which were well-tuned to boom out of Kingston sound systems back in the day! There's a sense of focus here that's wonderful – still all the odd, dubby twists ... CD

Trojan (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 2CD
Really great work from the roots years of the 70s – a time when reggae got even deeper and more righteous than a few years before – definitely breaking its initial ties with American soul music, and finding a strong voice of its own! The period coincides with some especially strong ... CD

Young Gifted And Black
Trojan (UK), 1970. New Copy
An incredible duo, and one who look more like an American soul team on the front cover – and manage to deliver a similar vibe in the grooves! The style is definitely reggae, but as you'd guess from the Nina Simone cover in the title track, Bob Andy and Marcia Griffiths are also reaching out ... CD

Trojan, Late 60s. New Copy
A mountain of great tracks from the legendary Trojan Records – a special collection that focuses on the sorts of ska and rocksteady cuts that have always been big with the rude boy scene!

Easy Skanking In Boston 78
Island, 1978. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
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 ...

Sweet funky, funky reggae from the deep vaults of Trojan! It's a non-stop jam with 20 hot numbers so get ready for the get down – whether it's smokin' originals like Toots & the Maytals "Funky Kingston" or "Funky, Funky", poppin' remakes like the reggae take on Kool ... CD

Trojan (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2CD
A really classic compilation from Trojan Records – and an album in their catalog that's arguably every bit as important as their single-artist sets! The Tighten Up series quickly stood out from the rest of the nascent reggae pack – to show the care and quality of Trojan's releases, and ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Trojan (UK), 1969. New Copy
A scorching bit of organ-heavy Jamaican instrumentals by The Hippy Boys – and a still somewhat mysterious effort after all these years, but a highly regarded one – filled out nicely with bunch of great bonus tracks! The group began making waves in the Jamaican live scene at the end of ... 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

Trojan (UK), 1974. New Copy
The first solo set from Jamaica's first lady of song, who had a storied career long before this set dropped, both at Studio One and as one half of the dynamic duo of Bob & Marcia. Pure soulful sweetness meets easy rocking niceness on this fab set of lover's rock produced by Lloyd Charmers, and ... CD

Trojan (UK), 1976. New Copy
An amazing CD issue of Susan Cadogan's 1976 LP – plus nearly another album's worth of bonus tracks! The Hurts So Good album features the more romantic side of Lee Scratch Perry's producer vibe – a style that gets a little lost with younger collectors who clamor for the Scratch's freaky ... CD

Reggae Thing
Capitol, 1976. Near Mint-
Soulful reggae from Jacob Miller and Inner Circle, not their roughest roots material, but with a nice polished approach that helped them appeal to a much wider audience, with "Groovin In Love", "This World", "Ghetto On Fire", "Tired Fe Lick Weed In A Bush", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mango, 1970s. Very Good-
After the success of The Harder They Come, everyone was ready for films about Jamaica with a heavy leaning towards the music scene to be the next big thing, and the film Rockers tried to capitalize on that. The film never matched the former's success, though it does have some choice footage with ... LP, Vinyl record album
