Desmond DekkerDouble Dekker (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Trojan/Doctor Bird (UK), 1973. New Copy ... $12.99
A killer double-length set of work from Desmond Dekker – one that's put together by Trojan Records to feature all the lesser-known and unreleased tracks that Desmond recorded during the years of his initial hits! As such, the album's a treasure trove of work that goes way past the oft-issued singles that Desmond cut in the late 60s and early 70s – tracks that are wonderful, and some of our favorites – but which are greatly expanded here! Dekker's voice is fantastic – as always – one of the sweetest soul sounds in Jamaican music – and the grooves are a mix of rocksteady and new reggae modes that were bubbling forth at the time. Titles include "Look What They're Doing To Me", "Life Of Opportunity", "Little Darling", "Warlock", "Licking Stick", "Hippopotamus", "The Song We Used To Sing", "Go & Tell My People", "Trample", "What Will You Gain", "My Reward", "Mother Nature", and "Life Hope & Faith". CD features 6 bonus tracks ''Father Noah", "Generosity", and four alternate versions of songs on the album! CD

✨✧ Desmond Dekker & The Aces007 Shanty Town (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Trojan/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
The legendary debut LP from Desmond Dekker & The Aces – trailblazing recordings that are masterfully laid the groundwork for the international ska scene, popularizing the rude boy style and paving the way for coming reggae phenomenon that was still years down the road! Desmond Dekker's impeccable voice was always so strongly rooted on earlier soul, both Jamaican and global, and the tight rhythms under it laid down by the appropriately-named Aces is aces indeed. Includes the classic title track, "Rude Boy Train" and "Rudy Got Soul", "You've Got Your Troubles", "Keep A Cool Head", "Mother Long Tongue", "Personal Possession", "Unity" and more.

Desmond Dekker & The AcesAction/Intensified (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Beverley's/Doctor Bird (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $15.99
A pair of early albums from Desmond Dekker & The Aces – both done right before the Jamaican group exploded with global fame – and were completely at the top of their powers! Actually, Dekker never seemed to falter at all – and right from the start, he's tremendous – this sweet-voiced, richly soulful singer who might have been Jamaica's answer to Sam Cooke – save maybe for the sharper edge he achieves working here with his classic group. The mix of Desmond's lead and the group's harmonies are set up in rocksteady rhythms throughout – on titles that include "007", "Sabotage", "Ah It Mek", "Rude Boy Train", "Sweet Music", "Coconut Water", "Wise Man", "Intensified", "You've Got Your Troubles", "Mother Young Girl", and "Keep A Cool Head". Both albums come with loads of bonus tracks – and the 2CD set features 52 tracks in all! CD

Jimmy Cliff & OthersHarder They Come (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Island, 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $16.99 19.99
A record that's not only a landmark in Jamaican music – but also a set that was to reggae what Curtis Mayfield's Superfly was to 70s soul! In other words, the set not only raised the bar for all the competition, it also ended up in a lot more record collections than most of them too – maybe in part because it was a soundtrack, as was Superfly – but also because it has this global power that makes it a defining album of the genre! Jimmy Cliff is obviously the mainman here, but there's help from other key players in the growing reggae scene – and titles include Jimmy's classic "You Can Get It If You Really Want", in two versions – plus two takes on "The Harder They Come", "Many Rivers To Cross", and "Sitting In Limbo" – plus "Sweet & Dandy" and "Pressure Drop" by The Maytals, "007" by Desmond Dekker, "Johnny Too Bad" by The Slicers, "Draw Your Brakes" by Scotty, and "Rivers Of Babylon" by The Melodians.

✨✧ VariousMonkey Business ... CD
Trojan (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s/1980. Used ... Just Sold Out!
No monkey business here – as the collection's an incredible document of early reggae tracks that broke big on the UK scene – embraced by the first wave of young skinheads who took the torch from earlier mods! Use of the word "skinhead" here is nothing like its later use in the US – and instead, the term applies to working class kids in the UK who shook off some of the fancier trappings of mod culture, and went back to basics – and often found the shift from rocksteady to reggae to be a perfect soundtrack for their scene! As a result, skinheads were huge supporters of new sounds coming from Jamaica – and really helped establish a UK audience for the music, on labels like Trojan and Island – the former of which is featured heavily here. Titles include "Liquidator" by Harry J All Stars, "Tighten Up" by The Untouchables, "Fatty Fatty" by Clancy Eccles, "54 46 Was My Number" by The Maytals, "007" by Desmond Dekker & The Aces, and "Elizabethan Reggae" by Boris Gardiner & The Love People.

Trojan (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 10 x 7 inch box set ... Out Of Stock
A host of killer cuts from the legendary Trojan Records – all pulled together here in a very limited box set! The package features songs chosen by Paul Smiler Anderson and Mark Baxter in tandem with their book on UK skinhead culture – a working class underground that rose up in the late 60s with a very different vibe than its later American counterpart – British kids who were more down to earth than mods, and who had as much of an open ear for sounds from the new immigrants to London as they did for the previous generation's American soul. This set really shows the kind of special cuts that broke big with the crowd – and titles include "Bang Bang Lulu" by Lloyd Terrel, "Train To Soulsville" by Cool Sticky, "Skinhead Girl" by Symarip, "CN Express (part 1)" by Clancy's All Stars, "I Can't Get Next To You" by Dave Barker & The Charmers, "Worries" by The Versatiles, "It Miek" by Desmond Dekker & The Aces, "Freedom Street" by Ken Boothe, "Soul Food" by Lyn Taitt & The Jets, "Don't Stay Away" by Phyllis Dillon, "The Scorcher" by Errol Dunkley, and "Shades Of Hudson" by Dennis Alcapone. 7-inch, Vinyl record
