✨✧ Desmond Dekker & The Aces007 Shanty Town (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Trojan/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
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. LP, Vinyl record album

VariousJon Savage's 1968 – The Year The World Burned ... CD
Ace (UK), 1968. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 21.99
The fourth fantastic chapter in this wonderful trip through the 60s – headed up by author Jon Savage, as a great soundtrack to his documents of the time! If you know Savage at all, you'll know to expect something different and fresh – an unusual take on the period, and one that goes way past the chart hits and overplayed oldies – to instead uncover currents of cultural activity at a much deeper level! And sure, there's a number of familiar songs here – but they're mixed with lesser-known gems, and presented in this great double-length package that features 48 tracks in all – all with notes from Savage himself. Titles include "Talkin About The Good Times" by Pretty Things, "Eastern Organ" by Brother Dan All Stars, "Hard To Handle" by Otis Redding, "Freedom Train" by James Carr, "Say It Loud (part 1)" by James Brown, "Omnibus" by The Move, "Sunshine Help Me" by Spooky Tooth, "Everydays" by Buffalo Springfield", "How Does It Feel To Feel" by The Creation, "Dear Delilah" by Grapefruit, "Machines" by Lothar & The Hand People, "Tomorrow Street Puzzle" by Fairport Convention, "I Got A Line On You" by Spirit, "Kick Out The Jams (preview pressing)" by MC5, "World In A Jug" by Canned Heat, "Classical Gas" by Mason Williams, "Honey Chile" by Martha Reeves & The Vandellas, "Danse A La Musique" by The French Fries, "Israelites" by Desmond Dekker, and "Why Does It Feel So Right" by The Shades Of Jade.

VariousMonkey Business ... LP
Trojan (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s/1980. Very Good+ ... $19.99
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.

✨✧ Jimmy Cliff & OthersHarder They Come ... LP
Island, 1972. Very Good- Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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. LP, Vinyl record album
(Mango/Island pressing. Cover has some wear and aging.)
