Monkey Man

CD (Item 852644) Trojan (UK), 1960s/1970s — Condition: Used
$9.99 ...

CD

One of the greatest trio albums ever from the Jamaican scene – a classic set that kicked off the sound of reggae for the 70s, while still holding onto the rocksteady sound of the years before! The vocals of the Maytals are tied together tightly, but still have a rough edge that's quite different than American group soul at the time – partly because the energy of Toots Hibbert is hard to contain, as he leaps forward with a great sense of spirit that paves the way for later solo stars to emerge from Jamaican groups. Production is by Leslie Kong – who's got a great ear for the bottom end – and titles include the classics "Monkey Man", "Pressure Drop", and "Peeping Tom" – plus "Revival Reggae", "Give Peace A Chance", "Gold & Silver", "The Preacher", "Bla Bla Bla", "African Doctor", "Sun Moon & Star", "She's My Scorcher", and "I Shall Be Free". Plus 13 (!) bonus tracks, which include "Swet & Dandy", "54 46 Was My Number", "Monkey Girl", "Johnny Coolman", "Feel Allright", "Never You Change" and alternate versions of "Peeping Tom" and "Bla Bla Bla".  © 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.

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
