Scientist At King Tubby's (1979 - 1981)

LP (Item 731536) Jet Star (UK), Early 80s — Condition: Near Mint-

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 right point. 10 tracks in all, sure to satisfy your dub craving, including "Scientist At The Control", "Drumalie Skank", "Straight To Jammy's Chest", "Cool Operator" and "Best Of The Best".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Essential stuff, whether you're a fan of roots reggae, Jamaican soul or the otherworldly antics of the Upsetter!

Bob Marley & The Wailers

Early Music
Calla, 1977. Very Good
We'd be willing to wager Marley is perhaps the artist whose work has been released and re-released, repackaged and reformatted more than any other. This set features work recorded under Coxsone Dodd at Studio One: "Wings Of A Dove", "It Hurts To Be Alone", "I'm Still ... LP, Vinyl record album

Satta
Azul, 1976. Near Mint-
An essential roots album! A mid 70s landmark of harmony roots, the Abyssinians' Satta is hard to beat for hardcore, spiritual roots delivered over hypnotically pulsing rhythms.

Bass Culture
Mango, 1980. Near Mint-
Bass Culture, but way more than that too – as the album is a classic kernel of wisdom from the great Linton Kwesi Johnson – done up in the mix of spoken and sung passages that always made his records so unique! Dennis Bovell handles the backing and mixing – with lots of nice ... LP, Vinyl record album

Kokee Band

Exotica 1970
Solid State, 1970. Near Mint- Gatefold
This is a massively overlooked album! Not only is it a great late-sixties take on Exotica, but it's also got some funky grooves and nice jazzy soloing, ala Sound Gallery or Sound Spectrum material. It's almost like the Chicharrones album, by the Latin Gents, if you know that one – and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Perception
Argo, 1961. Very Good+
An amazingly beautiful set of tracks from Art Farmer – playing here with superb accompaniment from a young Harold Mabern on piano, in a laidback quartet format that really lets Art open up!
