Dreader Dread 1976 to 1978

CD (Item 683500) Blood & Fire (UK), Late 70s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

✈

Johnny Clarke has always been one of our favorite Jamaican vocalists, king of the dancehall in his day as he was – though this set brings together his more conscious roots numbers. Like many other releases on the Blood & Fire label, the work here focuses on Bunny Striker Lee's productions, and with good reason – clearly always on the cutting edge, and coaxing many truly great performances from his singers & players. When you see Striker Lee's name on the label, you know it's heavy! "In the Roots of the Ghetto", "Every Knee Shall Bow" and "Roots Natty" are unstoppable, included here with 10 more cuts, a number of them in extended versions!  © 1996-2021, 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.

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 list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

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.

A classic double live album from Bob Marley & The Wailers – presented and packaged at a level that's really a cut above the usual set of that nature from the time! The group's in excellent form in a concert setting – and there's more than enough magic here to warrant the extended ... CD

Columbia, 1977. Used
Peter Tosh's great, strongly strident second album – and easily one of his best! Equal Rights is up to par with the finest Wailers LPs, although this is a bit heavier than the groovy, mellow Legalize It, the more celebrated predecessor. A hugely important, essential set of mid-to-late 70s ... CD

A posthumous album from the great Bob Marley – but one that's every bit as important as all the classics that were released during his too-short lifetime! The record really continues that righteous power of the later Bob Marley years on Island – that global scope in both the music's ... CD

Joshua Redman

Moodswing
Warner, 1994. Used
A real breakout set from the young Joshua Redman – the kind of record that made some mighty big ripples in the jazz world at the time – and which ended up in more record collections than we can count – and for good reason, too! The group's a rock-solid quartet – with Redman ... CD

Les McCann & Eddie Harris

Swiss Movement
Atlantic, 1969. Used
The extremely successful union of two of Atlantic's biggest funky jazz stars, caught live in Switzerland, with the amazing Benny Bailey sitting in on trumpet. The tracks are long and funky, and are virtually a blueprint for pop soul jazz playing of the time – mixing slinky rhythms with some ... CD

Donald Fagen

Nightfly
Warner, 1982. Used
A bit of jazzy magic from Fagen – stepping out from the cover of Steely Dan after the Gaucho album, and sounding pretty darn great on his own! The record is almost nostalgic, going back to a 50s of Brubeck, abstract expressionism, and pre-Castro Havana – filled with images that are a ... CD
