Soulful harmonies-laded Jamaican music from The Inturns – who also recorded as The Viceroys and with other monikers from the mid 60s onward – and are really in peak form here in the later 70s!

Zion Hill ... LP Pressure Sounds (UK), 1977. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ...
Out Of Stock
A fantastic album of melodica grooves – right up there with the famous work of Augustus Pablo, and done in a very similar mode! The backings are deep and dubby – heavy on bass and riffing guitar, with a brooding energy that's really contrasted by the lighter, more melodic elements of ...

Don't think "disco" as in the New York scene at Studio 54 – as these cuts are much deeper and dubbier – served up under the supervision of Bunny Lee by studio maestros Barnabas and Pat Kelly! Instrumentation is by the Aggrovators, but the magic comes equally from the ... (Reggae) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A pair of masterful collaborations between Bunny Striker Lee and Prince Jammy – fantastic dubs based upon rhythms by The Aggrovators!

El Rockers ... CD Pressure Sounds (UK), 1973. Used ...
Temporarily Out Of Stock
Essential! One wonders why when the original King Tubby Meets Rockers Uptown album is so heavy, that you'd want another dub version, but one spin of this special reissue package and you'll be convinced. Altogether different dubs and versions of many of the same rhythm cuts as that watershed dub ... (Reggae) read moreCD
Tripped-out greatness from the mighty Augustus Pablo – maybe one of the few cats in the world who could make the melodica sound like a cool instrument!

Lloyd Parks & We The People —
Meet The People ... LP Parks/Pressure Sounds (UK), 1978. New Copy (reissue)...
Out Of Stock
An incredibly righteous set from Lloyd Parks and his We The People band – a record that may well even top some of the most soulful sets of the roots reggae years! Parks is both bassist and singer on the set – and his strong tones on the bottom really define the slow-stepping rhythms ... (Reggae) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A host of rare gems from the early years of Lee Perry's legendary Black Ark studios – material recorded by Scratch himself, on some cuts featuring The Upsetters, others some close contemporaries – but all nicely unified here by contributions from Lee at just about every level!

In spite of a few legendary battles with I Roy and Big Youth on wax, Prince Jazzbo never seemed to enjoy the notoriety, outside Jamaica at least, that many other Dee Jays did, though his rough and ready delivery over many self produced rhythms was no less worthy of note. This fantastic compilation ... (Reggae) read moreCD
A fantastic album of dub from the 70s – and one that's got as much mystery on its cover as it's got magic in the grooves! Despite the name of King Tubby on the front, the real genius at the controls is Pat Kelly – who's got a different, but equally wicked way with working up a track ... (Reggae) read moreCD
An incredible set of low rolling, hypnotic dub genius from true reggae Revolutionaries – a batch of amazing tunes centered around the amazing drums of Sly Dunbar – cut in the mid-to-late 70s height of the Channel One groove!

Rare work from Jimmy Riley – a 70s singer who never fully got his due, but who rubbed shoulders with all the best on the Kingston scene, and made some mighty great music in the process!

Delroy Wilson —
Go Away Dream ... LP Pressure Sounds, 1982. New Copy (reissue)...
Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic record from the great Delroy Wilson – a set that's dubby at the core, but also has a righteous sense of soul too – almost a Jamaican extension of the hippest styles of early 70s American soul! Delroy's vocals are wonderful – very powerful, even without trying too much ... (Reggae) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A roots reggae classic from the 70s – a much more obscure set than the giants of the generation by Bob Marley and Black Uhuru, but a set that's got a similar sort of righteous power – maybe even more so, given that Yabby You has the freedom of an indie label setting to get his message ... (Reggae) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Rarities from the mighty Yabby You – with some remarkably strong, though little heard rootsy dub from Yabby and his extended brethren – including some recently discovered bits! The title Deeper Roots works on dual fronts. It's got pretty rare material, discovered by the always deep ... (Reggae) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the deeper collections we've seen from Pressure Sounds – great stuff and largely overlooked numbers from the vaults of the Micron Music label – with crisply chopping rhythms, steady harmonies, and echoey dub from Junior Byles, I Roy, Bobby Ellis, Tommy McCook and many more! ... (Reggae) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Woah! Don't get caught in the crossfire! I Roy takes on Prince Jazzbo, and luckily for us, Tubby's not taking sides, cutting mad versions and heavy dubs as the two Dee Jays trade barbs, rhymes and witty rejoinders for a battle on wax that lasted quite a few rounds! This great set by Pressure ... (Reggae) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Nice One!
