Horace AndyGood Vibes (with bonus tracks) ... LP
17 North Parade (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $39.99 40.98
A classic compilation – and we can't get enough of Horace Andy's sweet falsetto keening over these chugging, fat rhythms! A tremendous set of sides Andy cut in the mid-70s, packaged together with a few of the cuts in dub versions – all from a period when Horace was really hitting new heights in his music. While Andy cut many seminal sides for Coxsonne Dodd's Studio One – this work, some of it in collaboration with the great Bunny Striker Lee, stands among his best – and also often features Horace with firm creative control. Titles include "Serious Thing (a serious version)", "Skylarking (a better version)", "Reggae Rhythm (it's gone internationally)", "Youths Of Today (Jah Youths)", "Don't Let Problems Get You Down (No Problem)", "Mr Bassie (discomix)", "Pure Ranking (discomix)", "Good Vibes (dub vibes)", "Ital Vital (Ital Ites dubwise)", and "Control Yourself (version under control)".

Keith HudsonTuff Gong Encounter/Jammys Dub Encounter ... CD
17 North Parade, 1984. New Copy ... $12.99 14.98
Never-heard work from the legendary Keith Hudson – material recorded with the Wailers Band at Tuff Gong studios shortly before his too-early death – finally seeing the light of day after all these years! The set features 6 core tracks that were recorded by Hudson, and very much in the same top form of his classics – with amazing vocals, and a really righteous message that's maybe a bit more hard-hitting than some of the more commercial Tuff Gong projects – given simple, subtle backings that really fit the groove! Titles include "I Know My Rights", "White Africa", "Run Run Run", "Rebel Rasta", and "Star Light". Added to these are 6 more dub tracks – billed as Jammy's Dub Encounter – with less lead vocals from Hudson, but some amazing production in the studio that really stretches things out – and wicked rhythms from Aston Barrett on bass, Junior Marvin on guitar, Tyrone Downie on keyboards, and Carlton Barrett on drums – on titles that include "Rites Of Dub", "Dub Africa", "Run The Version", "Rasta Dub", "Rites Of Version", and "Star Dub".

✨✧ Keith HudsonPick A Dub (expanded edition) ... CD
17 North Parade, 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The crowning achievement of the legendary Keith Hudson – a landmark album of instrumental dub that started out in very small circulation, but soon grew to become one of the most important albums of the genre! The sound here is spare, stark, and simple – but in the best way possible – as Hudson takes the music right down to its core, yet seems to create even more powerful flow in the process – revising the 60s Jamaican love of American soul into a more cosmic mode for the next decade – but all with a raw approach that makes each element come across with a great deal of focus. Titles include "Black Heart", "Pick A Dub", "Don't Move", "Blood Brother", "Michael Talbot Affair", "In The Rain", and "Satia". Also comes with the bonus related Pick A Vocal album – with vocals by Agustus Pablo, Horace Andy, and Delroy Wilson – alongside some more instrumental tunes. Tracks include "Still Water", "Addis Ababa", "Fight On Fight On", "I'm All Right", "Depth Charge", and "Don't Think About Me". CD

✨✧ Niney The ObserverRoots With Quality – Reggae Anthology ... LP
Observer/17 North Parade/VP, 1970s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
An astounding collection that brings together work from a roots reggae legend! Niney's productions stand as some of the strongest benchmarks for golden era roots reggae, with his ability to fuse heavy rhythms with righteous messages and some of the better vocal performances that these singers would turn in for any producer. This great double LP set pulls together some of his biggest numbers as well as great versions, dubs, discomixes and a few hard to get alternate versions for a hefty showcase of one of the elite in Kingston's roster of master producers. Backing is by the Soul Syndicate, the Aggrovators, the Revolutionaries, the Cimarons and Steely & Clevie, with 28 tracks in all, including "Blood & Fire" by Niney, "Whole Lot Of Fire" by Big Youth, "Rascal Man" by Delroy Wilson, "Rasta No Born Yah (ext)" by Sang Hugh & The Lionaires, "Guess Who's Coming To Dinner/Clap The Barber" by Michael Rose, "I Need Your Loving" by Slim Smith, "Rock On" by Gregory Isaacs, "Silver Words" by Ken Boothe, "Warrior" by Johnny Clarke, "Chant It Down" by Freddie McGregor, "No More Will I Roam (ext)" by Dennis Brown, "Materialist" by Horace Andy, "Moses" by Jacob Miller, "Temptation, Botheration & Tribulation" by the Heptones, "Lover's Race" by Sugar Minott and "Thank You Mama" by Barry Brown.

✨✧ Lee Scratch PerryBlack Ark In Dub Vol 1 ... LP
VP/17 North Parade, Late 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An unusual album, and one that features a host of recordings done by Lee Perry right before his Pipecock Jackson implosion in the late 70s – but presented by former partner Pauline Morrison, who deserves a lot of credit for putting together a host of great dub tracks that might have been lost otherwise! The record first surfaced in the UK around 1980, with the usual very spare set of packaging that seems to mark some of the best dub records from the time – so there's little in the way of actual details about the recordings, but the quality of the bassy, echoey tracks definitely resonates with the strengths of the Black Ark studios at their height Titles include "Cool Rockers", "Jah", "Rasta Man", "Camp", "Dreadlock", "Guidance", "In The Valley", and "Money".

✨✧ CultureTwo Sevens Clash (3LPs – 40th anniversary edition) ... LP
Joe Gibbs/17 North Parade, 1978. New Copy 3LP ... Out Of Stock
The first album from Culture, and still their most classic – a set that takes its title from a prediction by Marcus Garvey – who said that there would be trouble in the world when "two sevens clash" on July 7, 1977! Fortunately, we made it all through that date in one piece – and good thing too, as the record's gone on to even more legendary status as the years have gone on – with a righteous sort of energy that just seems to get more important over the decades. Joe Gibbs produced, and arranged with Errol Thompson – and the slow-stepping rhythms of the set, heavy on bottom-end sounds, are a perfect backdrop for the message-oriented lyrics in the music. Every cut's a classic – and titles include "I'm Alone In The Wilderness", "Pirate Days", "Two Sevens Clash", "Calling Rastafari", "I'm Not Ashamed", "Get Ready To Ride The Lion To Zion", "Black Starliner Must Come", "Jah Pretty Face", "See Them A Come", and "Natty Dread Taking Over". Very special edition – with 11 bonus tracks that include ""Natty Dread Taking Over/Invasion" by Culture & Roy, "Natty Gone Clear" by Joe Gibbs & The Professionals, "Fulfillment" by The Mighty Two, "I'm Not Ashamed/Under Tight Wraps" by Culture & I Roy, "See Them A Come/Mask Mi Mask" by Culture & Prince Weedy, "Informer" by Culture, "Natty Pass His GCE" by Shorty The President, "State Of Emergency" by Joe Gibbs & The Professionals, and "Informer Version" by The Mighty Two.

✨✧ Harold Butler & The Four CornersButler Did It ! ... CD
17 North Parade/VP, 1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A real sleeper, pure modern soul and disco niceness wrapped up in an unassuming package! Butler's name may be on the lesser known list of Jamaican keyboardists, and even lesser known on the sweet soul scene, but this amazing set from '78 should go a long way towards correcting that! Butler takes the finest session men in Kingston, a batch of great reggae singers and crafts an album that stands right up next to the best of Leroy Hutson or anything you might hear out of Sigma Sound during the same time period, from the more laidback tracks that wouldn't be out of place on a breezy summertime evening to the more uptempo dance floor oriented numbers. There's one or two cuts that lean towards a rootsy island vibe, but overall this is a smoothly stepping modern outing! 13 tracks in all, including "Long Hot Days In The Summer" with Pam Hall, "Beautiful World" with Prilly Hamilton, "Book Of Life" with Pam Hall & Orville Wood, "Let True Love Be" with Ernest Wilson, "Love Forever" with Cynthis Schloss, "One Step Ahead" with Beres Hammond and Butler's own "Yes Music" and "Symphony To A Friend".

✨✧ Wailing SoulsWailing (colored vinyl pressing – with bonus 12 inch) ... LP
VP/17 North Parade, Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The vocals here are wonderful – a strongly soulful style that really reflects the group members' many years in Jamaican vocal groups – but the rhythms are also key, too – and handled by the Roots Radics with some slight touches of the digital age to come! The balance between rhythms and vocals is spelled out here strongly in the way that the album follows just about every straight tune with a dub version – so that the cuts "Penny I Love You", "Face The Devil", and "Who No Waan" are all followed by dub versions – alongside other cuts that include "Rudy Say Him Bad", "Fission", "Mr Big More", and "Down Be Downhearted". LP, Vinyl record album
(Colored vinyl pressing – with 12 inch bonus of "Take We Back" and "Take A Taste"!)

✨✧ Impact All StarsJava Java Java Java ... LP
Get On Down, 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Pivotal early dub! Depending upon whose history of the Jamaican recording industry you subscribe to, this is can be considered by many to be the first dub LP – and whether that's proveable or not, it's certain among the first! History aside, it's a mighty set with some raw early dub style workouts at the hands of Errol Thompson at the renowned 16 North Parade recording studio run by Randy's, with some deft production by Clive Chin. Needing virtually no introduction, the Impact All Stars drop some incredible rhythms, many which will be immediately recognizable as having been versioned from massive numbers for Augustus Pablo, Junior Byles and the Soul Vendors. Titles include "Java Dub", "Cheating Dub", "ET Special", "Ordinary Version Dub", "Hide Away Dub" and "Black Man's Dub". LP, Vinyl record album
