✨✧ Augustus PabloDubbing In A Africa ... CD
Abraham/Get On Down, Late 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Uber-classic dub from Augustus Pablo! Dubbing In A Africa was produced by Pablo and features a rhythm section of Bingy Bunny, Sly & Robbie and Gladdy. Here they deliver a nice, tight set of tunes which like many of Pablo's other classics, veer closer to rhythm workouts than deep space dub excursions – and we ain't complaining about that! Tremendous stuff from one the greats! Titles include "King Of Kings Dub", "Herbal Weed Dub", "Dub In Ethiopia", "Dubbing In A Africa", "Nigerian Love Dub", and "Mount Of Olives Dub". CD

✨✧ Augustus PabloAncient Harmonies (Blowing With The Wind/Rockers Comes East/One Step Dub/Rising Sun) ... CD
Rockers/VP, Mid 80s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Four 80s albums from the mighty Augustus Pablo – served up here in a special 2CD set! First up is Blowing With The Wind – seminal 80s work from Augustus Pablo – a set that's maybe got a bit more digital and electronic touches in the mix, but which still maintains that fantastic mix of dub and melodica that made the man so unique! The tunes have very righteous rhythms at the core, and a bit of keyboards mixed in with Pablo's lead – and maybe a few spacey touches around the edges that come off in a really great way! Augustus handles all the keyboards, arrangements, and production – and titles include "Twinkling Star", "Creation Blues", "Zion UFO", "Drums To The King", "First World Call", "This Song", "Twenty One Years Later", and "Ancient Harmonies". Rockers Come East is a sweet digital set from Augustus Pablo – a mid 80s set that has him mixing his melodica with other keyboard work on Casio and Yamaha – both instruments that are used with the otherworldly, snakey groove that makes Pablo so great! The rhythms are maybe slightly more 80s, too, but still very spare and stripped down – and Phillip Smart helps on the mix, while Clive Brown and Squidley provide some drumulation. Titles include "Pablo Meets P Smart In LI", "Progression Dub", "Revelino Dub", "Babylon Loosing Dub", "Sun Ray Dub", "Jah D Special", "Rockers Come East", Dubbing The Oppressors", and "Zion Seals Dub". One Step Dub is dubby genius from the great Augustus Pablo – a set that continues the spirit of his best 70s work in this mode, but with a sound that has a few slight 80s touches! The overall sound is still very nice and spare – laidback, gently tripping in the rhythm department, and with both melodica solos from Pablo – and some other keyboard work that really echoes the moody, spacey, snakey sound of his work on the blown instrument! The title names are a bit basic, but that hardly matters, given the sound of the set – and tracks include "Riot Dub", "In The Red Dub", "Hanging Dub", "Night Patrol Dub", "Rastaman Dub", "Zion Way Dub", and "Dubbing King James". Rising Sun is fantastic work from Augustus Pablo – and a great demonstration of the way that the best of the classic 70s Jamaican artists were able to shift their styles slightly during the 80s, but still come up with a sound that was every bit as great! There's more digital elements here than before – especially in the crackle of some of the rhythms – but in ways that are right around the edges, and which echo the sort of effects that might have been cooked up by tape in the studio – used here to bring a nice bite to the mix of melodica and melodica like keyboard lines from Pablo! Mixes are by Scientist – and titles include "Dub Wiser", "Rising Sun", "Fire Red", "Jah Wind", "Pipers Of Zion", and "African Frontline". CD

✨✧ Augustus PabloBorn To Dub You ... LP
17 North Parade, Mid 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
There's few folks more born to dub you than the great Augustus Pablo – an artist whose laidback work helped introduce dub music to a whole new generation in the 70s, then continued to remain at the top of the stack as the years went on! And although these cuts are rare material, not Pablo's classics, that only testifies even more strongly to the way that his 70s work can still blow away most of the competition – including any of the cats from the younger generation. The tracks here are all from the vaults of Gussie Clarke – and titles include "Classical Illusion (dub vendor 12")", "Origan Style", "Stardum", "No Entry (12" version)", "Born To Dub You", "Believe A Dub", and a nice two takes on the classic "Skylarking".

Pressure Sounds (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
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! This package digs deeper than some of the straight album reissues on the market – as the Pressure Sounds team have really unearthed some great cuts that originally only appeared as singles – 7" and 12" tracks that mix together heavy, dubby rhythms with Pablo's snakey lines on the breath-blown keyboard – all for a sound that's completely amazing. The set features work issued by a few different artists on the label, all with Pablo at the core – and titles include "Far East", "East Man Sound", "Up Warika Hill", "Mountain View Dub (versions 1 & 2)", "Pablo In Fine Style", "Ras Menilik Congo (Harp)" and "Kid Ralph" by Augustus Pablo – plus "Phillips Showcase" by the Pablo All Stars; "Levi Dub", "Raw Dub", "Cool Shade Dub", "Roots Dub" and "Zambian Style" by Rockers All Stars; "False Rumour" by Jah Levi; "Rockers Rock (version)" by Jah Iny; and "Chock Full & Dub" by Synthesis.

✨✧ Hugh Mundell/Augustus PabloAfrica Must Be Free By 1983 (with bonus dubs) ... CD
RAS/VP, 1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An incredible moment of righteous energy from the Kingston scene of the 70s – sublime production by Augustus Pablo, and very powerful lyrics from the great Hugh Mundell! Despite the laidback groove of the record, the tunes themselves have as much political energy as American work of the spiritual jazz generation, steeped in Rastafarian inspiration, but delivered by Hugh Mundell with this beautifully fragile vocal style – which somehow almost makes the message in the music even more compelling than if it came across from a more heavy-handed force! Chinna Smith plays lead guitar, and Pablo handles a lot of the piano and melodica lines – and titles include "Let's All Unite", "My Mind", "Africa Must Be Free By 1983", "Why Do Black Men Fuss & Fight", "Book Of Life", "Run Revolution A Come", "Day Of Judgement", and "Jah Will Provide". CD also features the full Africa Dub album, too – but with each dub track right after the regular song on the record – with titles that include "Unity Dub", "My Mind Dub", "Ital Sip", "Revolution Dub", "Africa Dub", "Sufferer Dub", and "Western Kingston Style".

Nat BirchallSounds Almighty ... LP
Tradition Disc (UK), 2018. New Copy ... $36.99 49.99
A very different album than usual from the great tenorist Nat Birchall – a set that's no less soulful than his other records, but in a completely different way! The album's a collaboration with producer Al Breadwinner – and has this approach that feels like a lost Jamaican instrumental session from the start of the 70s – as if Nat's playing the role of saxophonist Tommy McCook over some nicely laidback Kingston-styled rhythms! Birchall solos on tenor on most tracks, but also blows a bit of melodica too – and even handles a bit of organ and percussion too – all swept up in a dubby mix handled by Breadwinner, who contributes drums, guitars, and keyboards. There's a bit of trumpet and trombone on the set too, plus baritone sax from Stally – and the quality of the record is excellent, every bit up to the range of the Jamaican legends listed as inspiration on the cover – a lineup that includes McCook, Lee Perry, Augustus Pablo, and Cedric Brooks. Titles include "In The Hills", "Ancient Wisdom", "Youth Iron Rock", "Freedom Style", "Amlak Dub", "Hail Don D Jr", and "Igziabeher". LP, Vinyl record album
(Released by Birchall himself – and limited to 200 copies!)

Keith HudsonFlesh Of My Skin Blood Of My Blood (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Mamba/VP, 1974. New Copy ... $13.99 15.98
A once lost gem! Hudson's voice as a producer remains one of the most unique and idiosyncratic of his era, and this first LP issued under his own name stands as a shining document of his genius. Cut very near the time of his classic dub side Pick A Dub, this album shares the haunting mood that runs through the best of Hudson's work, all the while delivering a resounding roots message. The rhythms are fierce, laid down by Leroy Sibbles, Fully Fullwood, Santa Davis, Count Ossie and Augustus Pablo, a dozen mighty tracks in all: "Hunting", "Flesh Of My Skin", "Blood Of My Blood", "Testing Of My Faith", "Fight Your Revolution", "Darkest Night", "Talk Some Sense (Gamma Ray)", "Treasures Of The World", "My Nocturne", "I Shall Be Released", "No Friend Of Mine" and "Stabiliser". CD

VariousJammy's From The Roots 1977 to 1985 ... CD
Greensleeves, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 20.98
Crucial work from the mighty King Jammy – nearly a decade's worth of productions involving a host of key artists on the Kingston scene – set up with a quality that really helps Jamaican move forward at the underground, after a burst of global fame in the 70s! Jammy's got this nicely rootsy vibe here – not roots reggae, although there's some of that here – but an evolved version of indie production that makes this work such a great antidote to some of the major label material that was flooding the market at the time – righteous sounds from the streets, by artists who were still working hard to uncover new modes and fresh sounds! The choice of cuts is great – and titles include "Pablo in Moonlight City (12" mix)" by Augustus Pablo, "Fally Ranking" by Johnny Osbourne, "Tonight Is The Night To Unite" by Black Uhuru, "It A Go Dread" by Barry Brown", "Life Hard A Yard" by Natural Vibes, "Boom-Shack-A-Lack" by Junior Reid, "Children Of Israel" by Frankie Paul, "Liberation" by Junior Delgado, "Conscience Speaks" by Black Crucial, "Mr Landlord" by Half Pint, "Please Officer (12" mix)" by Earl Zero, "Jah Fire Will Be Burning" by Hugh Mundell, and "Youth Man" by Noel Phillips. 32 tracks on 2CDs.

Get On Down, 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily 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!

✨✧ VariousJoe Gibbs Presents Freedom To The People ... CD
Doctor Bird (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A stunning tribute to the legendary Joe Gibbs – one that doesn't just offer up a general assortment of cuts, but instead hones in on work recorded in the years 1971 and 1972 – a moment when Gibbs was really helping to transform the sound of Jamaican music! Many of these cuts show the new sort of headiness that Joe and a few key contemporaries were bringing to the scene in Kingston – and as with other Doctor Bird collections, the presentation is fantastic – with a huge amount of tracks that have never appeared on CD before, all with wonderful sound, and very detailed notes on Joe and the artists! There's a massive 54 cuts on the 2CD set – and titles include "If Ah Sa So" by The Destroyers, "New Kent Road" by Johnny Lover, "How Your Panty Get Wet" by Stranger & Jimmy, "We Love Weed" by Joe Gibbs All STars, "Rivers Of Babylon" by Prince Student, Cherry Island" by Aubrey Adams, "Peace Maker" by Max Romeo, "The Gardener" by Judy Mowatt, "Ah So" by Tommy McCook, "Rebeloution" by Winston Wright, "African Plant" by Vin Gordon, "George Headley Medley" by Dennis Alcapone, "Our Day Will Come" by The Heptones, "African Queen" by Augustus Pablo, "The Dynamic Ken Parker" by Ken Parker, "Shake Pretty Girl" by Jackie Brown, "From Africa With Love" by Rasta Man, "By The River Brown Sugar" by Cat Campbell, and lots lots more!

Doctor Bird (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A massive collection of genius from producer Joe Gibbs – work recorded in just over the pace of a year in the studio – served up here in a double-length collection of 48 tracks in all, 33 of which appear on CD for the first time ever! Joe Gibbs is a figure who hardly needs any sort of introduction – a landmark force in the studio who really helped transform Jamaican music, and help it to reach some deeper, more spiritual currents that really gave the music a huge global push at the time of these recordings. And as with some of his studio contemporaries, Gibbs was a non-stop powerhouse who never seemed to run out of ideas – as testified by the huge amount of material in this set! These aren't throwaway cuts, but a deep dig into the world of Gibbs, all killer all the way through – presented with the very high standards of the Doctor Bird label – with cuts from Dennis Brown, Alton Ellis, The Heptones, Bongo Herman & Bonny, Derrick Morgan, Jackie Brown, Eddie Ford, Prince Francis, Augustus Pablo, Big Youth, The Ethiopians, Cat Campbell, Dillinger, Vin Gordon, The Senators, and even a few from Joe himself.

Greensleeves, Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Beautiful sounds from the mighty Jacob Miller – material recorded with Augustus Pablo in the years before Miller went onto greater fame in Inner Circle – and with a rootsy vibe that's still extremely powerful all these many years later! Pablo's at the height of his talents here – able to hit just the best righteous modes, but without ever going over the top – at a level that seems completely effortless, and which really empowers the message in Miller's vocals! The set's overflowing with gems – and titles include "Keep On Knocking", "Each One Teach One", "Who Say Jah No Dread", "False Rasta", "Baby I Love You So", and "Girl Named Pat" – plus the dubs "Knocking Version", "Hungry Town Skank", "King Tubby Meet Rockers Uptown", "Jah Dread", "Each One Teach One Version", and "Girl Named Pat Version".

Harlem Shuffle (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great work from this series that really knows how to dig deep into the early years of reggae – going past some of the oft-reissued tracks to pull up some rare gems from a nice variety of small indie labels! The work here perfectly bridges the scenes in Kingston and London at the end of the 60s – tracks that are bubbling over with the new rhythmic experiments from Jamaica, but which have more than enough soul to get some global play as well – served up on cuts that include "Hot Sauce" by Dave Barker, "Psychedelic Reggae" by Winston Wright with The Supersonics, "Together" by Delroy Wilson, "Ride On Ride On" by Big Youth & Dennis Brown, "Reggae In The Fields" by Augustus Pablo, "Someday Someway" by The Leaders, "Keep On Pushing" by Lloyd & Glen, "Music Is The Key" by Roy Shirley, and "Hold Him Joe" by Glen Adams.

VP, Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Glen Brown's often the producer here – helming the decks on a host of classic cuts from the early 70s – but he also emerges as the main character too, at times when he steps to the mic and adds in a bit of encouragement to the proceedings! Brown's not really working in deejay mode – he's more in the background on most cuts, but then gets to shine as the lead artist on some of the later tracks in the package – especially the numbers that feature Glen on melodica, blowing the sweet keyboard with a spacious style that's a bit like Augustus Pablo! Titles include "Get Up" by Ron Wilson, "Scatter Light Rock" by Ron Wilson & Lennox Brown, "Dirty Harry" by Tommy McCook & Richard Hall, "Determination Skank" by Tommy McCook & Glen Brown, "Mr Ball Head Aitken" by Bobby Aitken, and the Glen Brown cuts "No More Slavery", "Crisp As A Ball", "Pantomine Rock", "The Winner", "Mitchville Rock", and "School Call".

Pressure Sounds (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Rare gems from the vaults of Jamaican production genius Bunny Lee – material cut mostly at his home studio, in the company of some very good friends and musical associates – hence the artist listing on the set! Some of the cuts here are from rare dubplates or acetates, others are extended or unreleased tracks from back in the day – and the work is united by a warmly collaborative vibe, and that nicely gritty way that Lee had of cutting a tune – leaving all the sharp corners in place, with an especially nice crackle in the rhythms, while also letting the sweetness really flow from the singer in the lead! Titles include "The Time Has Come" by Slim Smith, "Stick By Me" by John Holt, "Give Me Love" by Cornell Campbell, "Two Ton Gulletto" by U Roy Junior, "Sentimenal Man (ext mix)" by Ernest Wilson, "Devil's Brother In Law" by I Roy & Augustus Pablo, "My Confession" by Cornell Campbell, "Man Next Door" by Horace Andy, "Cherry Oh Baby" by Eric Donaldson, and "Any Heart Can Be Broken" by Delroy Wilson.

A beautiful collection – a full album and rare tracks from sweet-voiced reggae singer Jimmy London, plus a whole bonus disc of other material produced at Randy's too! The core album, Bridge Over Troubled Waters, is wonderful – recorded by a singer who maybe didn't hit the heights of some of his contemporaries, but who has a really universal soul quality to his vocals – a bit falsetto, a bit deeper and sweeter too – working through a mix of songs from American soul, plus a few originals – all with nicely warm production from Vincent Chin, marking that shift from rocksteady into early reggae! Titles include "Shake A Hand", "They Don't Know", "Hanging Up My Heart", "Just My Imagination", "It's Now Or Never", and "Bridge Over Troubled Water". Includes bonus tracks by Jimmy – including "Hip Hip Hooray", "Jamaican Festival 72", and "I'll Never Find Another Mood" – plus 38 more bonus tracks – by Lloyd Parks, Dennis Brown, Freedom Group, Alton Ellis, Ethiopians, Dennis Alcapone, Impact All Stars, Augustus Pablo, Carl Murphy, Max Romeo, and others.

A killer collection of work from Jamaican producer Derrick Harriott – a double length set that features 20 tracks on CD for the first time ever, plus lots of rare nuggets – all from a time when Harriott was completely on fire! Harriott was not only a producer, but also a performer, and club and record store owner – which gave him great access to up and coming talents, and a keen ear for all the changes that were taking place on the scene – changes that here sometimes come across with some of the more righteous currents that were showing up in 70s soul, and other times the growing sense of spirituality in Jamaican music. There's a wealth of fantastic work here – all presented in the high standard of the Doctor Bird label, which means notes that are as thoughtful as the track selection – a whopping 48 titles that also includes a fair bit of versions on the second disc. Titles include "Salaam" by Bongo Herman with Les & Bunny, "Throne Of Justice" by The Ethiopians, "Short Cut" by The Crystalites, "Cotton Comes To Harlem" by Winston Wright, "Mash UP" by The Diamonds, "Call Me Trinity" by Joe White, "Medicine Stick" by Denzil Laing, "Shaft" by The Now Generation, "Black Moses" by The Preacher, "Cool Breeze" by Big Youth, "Smokey Eyes" by Glen Brown", "Smokey Version" by The Cyrstalites, "Big Boy" by Junior Murvin, "Tougher Than Tough Version" by Augustus Pablo, "I Roy" by Frankie J & Melinda, "Blackula" by The Crystalites, "Bedroom Mazurka" by Agustus Pablo & Fay, and "Earthly Sounds" by The Crystalites.
