Clancy Eccles/The DynamitesFreedom/Fire Corner (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Trojan/Doctor Bird (UK), 1969. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99 24.99
A pair of gems from the early years of reggae – stacked back to back in a 2CD set, along with a huge amount of bonus tracks too! First up is the legendary Freedom album from Clancy Eccles – one of the first great talents to emerge in the Jamaican scene of the 60s – a singer whose recorded history even predates rocksteady and ska, and who had an undeniable impact on the early sound of reggae! Eccles is a genius – a singer/songwriter with a strong sense of soul, and an approach that really opened up the way for a new level of humanity in Jamaican music – as you'll hear on titles that include "Two Of A Kind", "Mount Zion", "Fattie Fattie", "What Will Your Mother Say", "Freedom", "I Need You", "The World Needs Loving", and "Dollar Train". The Dynamites were Clancy Eccles backing band at the same time as the Freedom album – and they step out here in an album of their own – one produced by Clancy himself, but issued even before they backed him up on Freedom! The set features numbers by the group, some organ tunes by Winston Wright, and two vocal appearances by King Stitt – on titles that include "John Public", "Eternally", "Sam Fie", "This Is The Night", "One Way Street", "Vigorton 2", "Fire Corner", "Soul Language", and "Say What You Say". Plus, this 2CD set has a huge amount of bonus tracks – 13 more numbers by Eccles – plus another 13 by The Dynamites, King Stitt, Val Bennett, and Winston Wright. A huge amount of music, all packaged with the usual deep notes and high quality that makes the Doctor Bird label one of the greatest reissue labels for Jamaican music! CD

VariousFoolish Fool/Herbsman Reggae (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Trojan/Doctor Bird (UK), 1970. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
A pair of classic Clancy Eccles-produced compilations from the start of the 70s – issued here with plenty of bonus tracks too! Foolish Fool was initially billed to Cynthia Richards, the great singer who delivers the leadoff title tune – but the real start of the set is maybe Clancy Eccles, as the tracks here are all from the hand of the legendary producer – and really show the way that rocksteady was moving towards some of the tighter, sharper rhythms that would mark the early days of reggae! All the singers are as great as Richards – and titles include "Don't Look Back" and "Here Comes The Night" by Busty Brown, "Don't Mind Me" and "Mademoiselle" by Joe Higgs, "Foolish Fool" and "Conversation" by Cynthia Richards, "Feel The Rhythm" and "Africa" by Clancy Eccles, and "Revival" by The Dynamites. Herbsman Reggae is a set that more clearly foregrounds the work of Clancy Eccles in the lead – and one that also gives plenty of credit to the great Dynamites band on most of these tracks – a wicked quintet with Winston Wright on organ, Hucks Brown on guitar, and Gladdy Adams on piano! The rhythms are hard, the production is wonderful – all spacey and weird – and the record has this beautiful unified mix of vocals and instrumentals, a number with some cool pre-dub use of echo. Tracks include "Herbsman Shuffle" by King Stitt & Andy Capp, "Black Beret" and "Phantom" by The Dynamites, "Promise" by Cynthia Richards, "See Me (take 2)" by Earl George, "False Nyah" by Barry & The Affections, "The Ugly One" by King Stitt, and "Senor Judas" by Clancy Eccles & The Dynamites. This fantastic 2CD reissue also includes 34 bonus tracks – more Eccles productions of work by The Westmorlites, Barrington Sadler, The Dingle Brothers, Glen & Roy, Carlton Wedderburn, Carl Dawkins, and many others. 56 tracks in all!
