Black Sounds Of Freedom

LP (Item 425067) Shanachie/Greensleeves, 1977 — Condition: Near Mint-

The debut LP from the second lineup of Black Uhuru, with Duckie Simpson, Michael Rose and Errol Nelson. Produced by Prince Jammy, this first LP is a tremendous slice of roots rock, even if it doesn't measure up quite so well against the later version of the group with Puma Jones and Sly & Robbie producing. This later Greensleeves edition was remixed by Jammy at Tubby's in 1981, and includes "Eden Out Deh", "I Love King Selassie", "Hard Ground" and a great version of Marley's "Natural Mystic".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Recent pressing on blue vinyl.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Black Uhuru

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.

We're not entirely certain what to make of this reissue, as it seems to have some conflicting information in the notes, but we do know that's it a nice fat set of rhythms with some nice space age sound effects dropped over top, deep echo and nice reverb thunderclaps punctuating the mix at just the ...

Survival
Island, 1979. Very Good
One of the sharpest, most righteous albums from Bob Marley – in case you couldn't guess from the title, which is his response to a recent assassination attempt!
