✨✧ Brown SugarI'm In Love With A Dreadlocks – Brown Sugar & The Birth Of Lovers Rock 1977 to 1980 ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The first collection we've ever seen to do justice to the Brown Sugar trio from the UK reggae scene of the late 70s – a group who do a fantastic job of merging older sweet soul styles with a new lovers' vibe, all in a mode that's completely sublime! The group's noteworthy as the starting place of Caron Wheeler, who'd later rise to great fame in Soul II Soul – and Carol Simms, who'd later rise on her own as Kofi – but even without that later legacy, the music here is completely wonderful – and is presented with detailed notes, in a set that collects all the singles the trio recorded at the time with Dennis Bovell and John "Brownie T" Kpiaye. Brown Sugar are clearly influenced by the sweeter side of American group soul style in the late 60s – and even cover a few cuts from that era – yet they also have this bad-stepping style that really offers up the strongest current of the London style of the period – the crisper crackle and rootsier production approach that was really showing a scene coming into its own. Titles include "Black Pride", "Our Reggae Music", "Hello Stranger", "You & Your Smiling Face", "Loving Dreadlocks Dub", "Confession Hurts", "Proud", "Do You Really Love Me", "Hurtin", "Run Away Love",a nd "Dreaming Of Zion".

Lyman Woodard OrganizationSaturday Night Special ... CD
Strata/Uuquipleu, 1975. New Copy ... $9.99
Hypnotic organ funk from Lyman Woodard – an old bandmate of Dennis Coffey, and one of the shining lights of the 70s Detroit scene! This is amazing, amazing stuff – Woodard's electric piano, organ and occasional mellotron and Norma Bell's alto saxophone lend a cosmic funk aspect throughout, very much like Death Wish-era Herbie Hancock – with a laidback, tripped-out groove that's really mindblowing! Ron English accents the thing perfectly with his languid guitar and bass groove, while Leonard King and Lorenzo Brown's drumming and percussion can keep the groove adrift, or tear it up in a funky maelstrom depending on the mission of the cut. It's totally essential Strata jazz funk – and a record we've rarely seen in the original pressing. Tracks include "Saturday Night Special", "Joy Road", "Belle Isle Daze", "Creative Musicians", "Cheeba", "On Your Mind", "Allen Barnes", and "Help Me Get Away". CD

VariousBuzzsaw Joint Cuts 5 & 6 – Sophisticated Savage/Dusty Stylus ... CD
Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $9.99
Rare, raw tracks in the best sort of mode we've come to expect from the Stag-O-Lee label – the kind of sounds we've really been digging on their 10" vinyl compilations, but presented here in support of the Buzzsaw Joint club night in London! The tracks are all from the start of the 60s, and all from rare pieces of 45rpm vinyl – work by artists working in a rough blend of blues, R&B, swamp rock, and other rough-edged styles from the time. This CD set brings together material from the LP volumes 5 and 6 – and titles include "Jungle Love" by Bill Springer, "Look What You Do To Me" by Stick Evans, "Desert Caravan" by The Starfires, "Zei Gezunt" by Don Schraier Rocktet, "Toot Over" by Blues Blenders, "Get Lost" by The Metallics, "Hawaiian People Eater" by Jimmy Uke & His Islanders, "Certingly I Do" by Doodie Woo, "El Lobo" by The Demons, "Screw Driver" by Rhythmaires, "Further Up The Road" by Jolly Jax, "Come On" by Dennis Roberts, "Poison Ivy" by Two Crows & The Diggers, "I'm Traveling" by Piney Brown, "Lulu Brown" by Grade Wicker, "Everyday" by Margo, "Please Pretty Please" by Leo Baxter, "Talkin About Me" by Moose John, and "Made It Up In Your Mind" by Big Jack Reynolds.

VariousKing Jammy's Dancehall Part 1 – 1985 to 1989 ... LP
Dub Store (Japan), Late 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $30.99 39.98
A great collection of work from King Jammy's studios – all cuts recorded at the end of the 80s, with a definite digital feel – but a sound that's still a lot warmer and more soulful than bigger mainstream work of the time! As the title promises, there's plenty of dancehall in the mix – but many of the grooves are more laidback and mellow – bridging the space between the bigger global hits in the style, and a dubbier, rootsier generation of reggae too – which seems to bubble forth here on most tracks, and just get a slight digital reworking by Jammy. The 2LP set features a very well-selected batch of material from these years – titles that appeared on labels like Greensleeves, Superpower, and Unity Sounds, with titles that include "Icky All Over" by Wayne Smith, "In The Area" by Johnny Osborne, "The Exit" by Dennis Brown, "Don't Touch The Crack" by Little Kirk, "Dancehall Vibes" by Anthony Johnson, and "Jack Slick" by Junior Murvin.

VariousKing Jammy's Dancehall Part 2 – 1984 to 1991 ... LP
Dub Store (Japan), 1980s/Early 90s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $30.99 39.98
King Jammy may have come to the reggae party a bit later than some of his famous predecessors – but the man's ears and studio talents helped provide a great way for the whole scene to move forward strongly – as you'll hear from these crucial productions from the key dancehall hears! Although the bigger version of that style meant chart crossover, and even a bridge to other musical communities – the sound here is nicely stripped-down, and very rootsy – definitely a bit digital in the production, but always with a richness that goes right back to the earlier dubplate years of the 70s. As with all Dub Store titles, the choice of cuts is wonderful, and the presentation is right up there with the best from Soul Jazz and 17 North Parade. Titles include "History" by Dennis Brown, "One Big Ghetto" by Half Pint, "Don't Take Your Gun To Town" by Al Campbell, "Crucial Boy (version)" by Prince Jammy, "Victim Of Babylon (version)" by King Jammy, "Love Light Of Mine" by Horace Andy, "Cry For The Youths" by Wackad, "Dangerous System" by Pad Anthony, "No Drugs" by Tinga Stewart, and "Move On" by Wailing Souls.

VariousReggae Sunsplash 81 – A Tribute To Bob Marley ... CD
Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1982. New Copy 2 CDs ... $8.99 18.98
A mighty mighty tribute to the great Bob Marley – served up here by a host of former associates, family members, and Jamaican contemporaries – all in some lively concert performances that really open things up! The double-length set was a great seller at the time, and continues to be a spirited document of this key moment of reggae explosion on the global scene – and titles include "Sound System" and "Ku Klux Klan" by Steep Pulse, "Plastic Smile" and "Guess Who's Coming To Dinner" by Black Uhuru, "The Bed's Too Big Without You" by Sheila Hylton, "Soon Forward" by Gregory Isaacs, "1865" by Third World, "Right Time" by Mighty Diamonds, "If I Had The World" by Dennis Brown, "Belly Full" by Rita Marley & The I-Threes, and "Sugar Pie" by Melody Makers & The Wailers.

VariousStudio One DJ Party ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $29.99 34.99
A really well-done collection of the many DJ talents who recorded for Studio One over the years – one that gets past the obvious hits to include a stunning array of really varied voices! As you might know, in Jamaican music, the term "DJ" refers not just to someone spinning records, but also to a vocalist rapping over a tune – a practice that began live, as DJs were talking along with their records on soundsystems – then moved into the studio, and onto records, thanks to the pioneering work of labels like Studio One! The label always had a great ear to the street, which keeps the quality level of these tracks really high, even as the 80s move in – and as always with Soul Jazz, the whole package is great – with very detailed notes that support the music even more strongly than the original records. Titles include "We A Don" by Screechie Dan, "Riddle I This" by Dennis Alcapone, "Universal Love" by Mad Roy, "Fountain On The Mountain" by Dillinger, "My Number" by Lone Ranger, "It A Fi Bun" by Kentrus, "DJ Special" by King Sporty, "Rhyming Time" by King Stitt, "Ragga Muffin" by Jim Brown, "Raindrops" by Prince Garthie, "Nanny Version Skank" by Big Joe, and "Automatic Clapping" by Jah Buzz.

VariousSweet Taste Of Sin – Sensual Sampler-Ready Soul For B-Boys, B-Girls, & Soul Heads ... CD
BGP (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Sweet and smooth 70s soul – hand-picked with a freshness that should appeal to folks who found these sounds through the hip hop that these grooves laid the sonic groundwork for. The tracks on here aren't as beat or break-heavy as some of the material on other sample-driven collections – but that's fine with us, as the tracks move into a sophisticated soul range that's always a pleasure to hear, bringing together the kind of well-produced 70s tracks we love! Titles include "Sweet Taste Of Sin" by Dennis Coffey, "I'll See You In Hell First" by Phillip Mitchell, "Do It To Me Now" by Fatback, "Don't Risk Your Happiness On Foolishness" by Fantastic Four, "Killing Time" by Natural Essence, "Your Love Is My Desire" by Eramus Hall, "Baby Get Down" by Eddie McLoyd, "Set It Out" by The Detroit Emeralds, "Love Starved" by Shirley Brown, "I'm Gonna Have To Tell Her" by Isaac Hayes, "If I Had The Power" by Johnny Guitar Watson, and "I Got To Have Your Love Now" by Caesar Frazier.

Just after the first wave of the skinhead phenomenon died down in the UK, the suedehead thing started to come around, grooving to a new era of Jamaican R&B.

✨✧ VariousStudio One – Black Man's Pride ... CD
Studio One/Soul Jazz (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Some of the most righteous music ever recorded at Studio One – tracks that rival the most progressive American soul music of the 70s in terms of political message and cultural empowerment! Studio One always worked at levels that drew strongly from American soul – but here, the sounds really stand strongly on their own – with a newly-cast vision of price and power in independent Jamaica – set to new rhythms that signify the important musical changes that were taking place with the cultural changes of the 70s! Most of the tracks here are from the first half of the 70s, and are something of the birth of the roots reggae years – but also maybe have even more power together, in this beautifully-selected collection from Soul Jazz. The package features some especially great notes on the politics of the Jamaican scene at the time, which really illuminates the music – a heady selection of tunes that include "Roots Natty" by The Gladiators, "Black Man's Pride" by Alton Ellis, "Created By The Father" by Dennis Brown, "Child Of The Ghetto" by Horace Andy, "Love & Understanding" by Glen Miller, "Got To Be Cool" by The Classics, "Equal Rights" by The Heptones, "Build Our Dreams" by John Holt, "Forgive Them" by Johnny Osbourne, "Children Listen To Wise Words" by Freddie McGregor, "Up Park No Man's Land" by Winston Jarrett, and "Why Can't I" by Cedric Im Brooks.

✨✧ VariousBuzzsaw Joint Cut 6 – Dusty Stylus ... LP
Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Weirdo sounds from the glory days of the rare single – a great time when so many records were coming out, nobody ever cared too much about trying to stick to a familiar style or cash in on a certain market! Instead, the music here really mixes things up in a great way – as Latin rhythms, twangy guitars, jazzy piano, and other elements all come together in a range of great styles – sometimes soulful, sometimes exotic, and always with the great underground sound we love from this series! Titles include "Further Up The Road" by Jolly Jax, "Come On" by Dennis Roberts, "Poison Ivy" by Two Crows & The Diggers, "I'm Traveling" by Piney Brown, "Lulu Brown" by Grade Wicker, "Everyday" by Margo, "Please Pretty Please" by Leo Baxter, "Talkin About Me" by Moose John, and "Made It Up In Your Mind" by Big Jack Reynolds.
