Unmetered Taxi – Sly & Robbie's Taxi Productions

CD (Item 486118) Pressure Sounds (UK), 1980s — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock


Earthshaking bass and percolating drums keep this superb set rockin' in fine style! Well known as the lynch pin to so many great rhythms cut from the 70s onward, Sly & Robbie's reputation as one of Jamaica's baddest rhythm sections precedes them. This compilation focuses on tracks produced by the Rhythm Twins, and issued on their Taxi label at the cusp of the 80s, one of numerous peaks in their lengthy career. 22 tracks in all, essential numbers issued here with their mighty instrumental versions: "Baltimore" and "Real Love" by The Tamlins, "Rocky Music" by Struggle, "Tickle Me" by Thrilla, "Shine Eye Gal" by Black Uhuru, "Old Broom" by the Wailing Souls, "Amblique" by Taxi featuring Brian and Tony Gold, "Love and Devotion" by Jimmy Riley, "Revolution (dub plate Version)" and "Revolution" by Dennis Brown and "Heart Made Of Stone" by The Viceroys plus "Baltimore Version", "Rocky Music dub", "Real Love Version", "Tickle Me Version", "Shine Eye Version", "Drunken Master (Love and Devotion Version)", "Revolution Version", "Unmetered Taxi", "Unmetered Taxi Version", "Old Broom Version" and "Heart Made Of Stone Version". As usual, excellent notes and nice package from Pressure Sounds make this set complete!  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Out of print and includes slipcase. Please note – while the overall sound quality of this recording is excellent, it appears that at least one track was remastered off an original vinyl copy.)

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.

Used CD Grade

We only use the grade "Used CD" for non-new CDs. This all-encompassing grade was chosen it because we only buy and offer used CDs in the best possible condition.

When you purchase a used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use, but if there are significant details or defects we will describe the item's condition (just like we do with LPs), so look for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details before ordering.

All of our used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. After you receive a used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly. If it does not, you can request a return for a full refund.
