Marcus Garvey/Garvey's Ghost

CD (Item 599194) Mango, 1975 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

An absolute classic! If you can own only one reggae LP, this one's in the front running – it's as if the words crucial and conscious were created to define the sound Winston Rodney, Burning Spear & the Black Disciples capture on this landmark roots LP. Though this is the Island version which many claim was cleaned up a bit too much to appeal to white audiences (and the same for the dub set, which is included here), we still think it's pretty powerful. The Black Disciples band, with Horse Wallace, Robbie Shakespeare, Family Man Barrett, Chinna Smith and others, carve out mighty dread rthythms, and producer Jack Ruby keeps the proceedings tight and right, with just the right dub effects laid over top on the dub cuts. Featuring the tracks "Slavery Days", "Marcus Garvey", "The Invasion", "Red, Gold, & Green", "Resting Place", and "Live Good", plus this CD issue adds the dub companion LP, Garvey's Ghost, the dubs "The Ghost", "I & I Survive", "Black Wa-Da-Da", "Brain Food", "Dread River", "Reggaelation" and more, for a total of 20 tracks in all!  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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 have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible. All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.

Early, early Coxsone Dodd produced sides of groovy rocksteady, voiced by a young Bob Marley with Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer. While we don't find this material nearly as compelling as his later work produced by Lee Perry and then his huge international hits, it's great Studio One rocksteady and an ... CD

Natural Wild (CDr pressing)
Hammer Musik, 1980. Used
A later effort from Prince Lincoln and the Rass E's, a kind of forgotten footnote in the roots movement. Though this album is a seemingly odd collaboration with UKL pop star Jow Jackson (or at least he was a pop star in the 80s), it works surprisingly well, and as with his earlier efforts, ... CD

Bob Marley & The Wailers

Kaya
Island, 1977. Used
Sweet grooves from the great Bob Marley – a set cut at a time when Marley was really riding his international fame – and able to create the kind of music that reached out way more than conventional reggae! The Kingston roots of the sound are still very firmly in place – but there' ... CD

Not an expanded version of the album of the same name, but rather a career spanning retrospective of the smooth, but lonely lover ruling coolly! Perhaps the greatest of the purveyors of lover's rock, who cut a number of wonderful roots and sufferer's numbers too, Isaacs also delivered the goods ... CD
