King TubbyConcrete Jungle Dub ... CD
Dub Store (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
A 70s dub masterpiece – and one of the records that really set the standard for the genre! Producer Winston Riley first rose to reggae fame in the Techniques, but here he's a master of the instrumental mode – working with a group of all-star musicians at Harry J's and King Tubby's Studio – all to craft these spare, bassy grooves that are completely out of sight! There's a sense of understatement here that separates the music from later dub work – and the record's a great reminder that sometimes less is more – especially when it comes to exploring the deeper sides of the sonic spectrum. Titles include "Chalist Dub", "Staga Dub", "Dread Dub", "Mistry Maker Dub", "Red Gold & Green Dub", "Peace & Love Dub", and "Who Is The Dub". CD

Bunny WailerDubd'sco Vol 1 ... CD
Solomonic/Dub Store (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
A fantastic underground gem from Bunny Wailer – one of the rare albums issued on his heady Solomonic label – an imprint that featured some of his most righteous material on record! As you'd guess from the title and the somewhat unprepossessing cover, the style here is heavily dubby – and includes material from the Black Heart Man album, plus other singles, all mixed up nicely by Bunny to some completely head-nodding rhythms! There's almost a sense of magik flowing through the mix – as Bunny crafts sonic spells on titles that include "Roots Raddics", "Battering Down", "Armadedon", "Fig Tree", "Dream Land", "Love Fire", and "Rasta Man".

VariousRare & Unreleased Ska Recordings From Federal Records Vaults 1964/1965 ... CD
Federal/Dub Store (Japan), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
Killer work from a time when the Jamaican music scene was really coming into its own – served up here from the vaults of Federal Records, who were one of the key imprints helping capture the new Kingston sounds of the 60s! Federal already had roots in Jamaican jazz and other styles, which they definitely bring to bear on the recording of these tunes – tracks that are very different than later revival ska, and even some of the late 60s Jamaican hits – and which often have a gritty quality that tie them much more strongly to the earlier styles that led to the music. As the package indicates, all tracks here are rare, and some are unreleased – with titles that include "Blue Ska" by The Cavaliers, "One Ska One Ounce Of Weed One Beer" by Clive Wilson & The Skatalites, "Third Man Theme" by Granville Williams, "What To Do" by Federal Singers, "Come Along With Me" by The Maytals & Don Drummond, "String Of Pearls" by Audley Williams, "I Man" by The Cavaliers, "Coppa" by The Maytals & Don Drummond, "Love Is All I Have" by The Federal Singers, and "Dip Them" by The Cavaliers.

VariousRedman International – Dancehall 1985 to 1989 ... LP
Dub Store (Japan), Late 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $31.99 32.98
Sweet digital dancehall – served up here in a collection that does a great job of looking at the deeper side of the scene in the late 80s! All tracks here appeared on the Redman International label, and there's definitely a number of versions handled by the Redman himself – but only after you take a trip through some great younger singers whose energy really helped breathe new life into Jamaican music during the period – not just through a deft shift in style, but also via an array of changing subject matter too! Titles include "New Tactics" by Admiral Tibet, "Runnings" by Dave Bailey, "Old Chain" by Da Da Waps, "Danger" by Carl Meeks, "Rub A Dub One" by Little John, "Geow Now" by Horace Martin, and "Yu Nu Remember" by Wayne Palmer – plus "Old Chain (version)", "Danger (version)", "When I Release (version)", and "New Tactics (version)", all by Redman.

✨✧ VariousKentone Ska From Federal Records – Skalvouvia 1963 to 1965 ... LP
Dub Store (Japan), Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Very early ska from the Jamaican scene – served up here on a host of rare recordings from Federal Records – an important precursor to Studio One, Treasure Isle, and better-known imprints from later in the decade! While the rhythms here are often hitting the familiar mode of the style, there's also other elements that really show things in progress – including a more fluid sense of Caribbean styles, with elements from other island scenes coming into the mix a bit more than once the Jamaican scene firmly hits its stride. There's also some great jazz inflections, too – as part of that moment when some of the key early players were making their own music, but during an era of American soul jazz influence too – as you'll hear on titles that include "Free Form" and "Like Falling In Love" by Ernest Ranglin, "One Look" and "My Daily Food" by The Maytals, "You Made Me Warm (acoustic)" by The Sharks, "All Of Me" by The Monarchs, "Blackman Ska" by Eric Monty Morris, and "Baby Please Don't Go" and "I Am Blue" by Eddie Perkins.

✨✧ VariousMerritone Rock Steady Vol 3 – Bang Bang Rock Steady 1966-1968 ... CD
Dub Store (Japan), Late 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic sounds from the rocksteady years in Jamaica – tracks that are a fair bit more rare and obscure than some of the bigger singles that circulated at the time – even though they feature a fair bit of the same artists and musicians! The work here all came from the studios of Federal Records – one of the first indies in Kingston, headed by the visionary Ken Khouri – who put things together and learned the process as he went – which often made for a very organic approach to the music! Khouri handled a lot of other Jamaican styles in the years before these sides – but he really seems to have hit his stride with rocksteady – coming up with a perfect balance between the new rhythms, the sharp instrumentation, and the soulful styles of the singers. Volume 3 goes up to 1968 and includes a killer version of Nancy Sinatra's & Lee Hazlewood's classic "Bang Bang" by Tomorrow's Children, "We Gonna Free" by Ethiopians, "You Hurt My Soul" by Joe Higgs, "You Could Never Be True" by Henry Buckley, "Cool Collie" by Hopeton Lewis, "Why Am I Treated So Bad" by Lynn Taitt & The Jets, "I'm Coming Home" by Eddie Perkins, "Mr Hops" by The Renegades and lots more. 22 tracks in all.

DillingerCB 200 (2019 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Mango/Get On Down, 1976. New Copy ... $22.99
A Dee Jay classic from the Dub Organiser! One of the first LPs to break large on the international scene, and certainly one of the first Dee Jay records to do so, this Channel One Hoo Kim production features the Ragnam Piza toasting mightily over some fat rhythms provided Benbow & Sly, Family Man and an all star cast of other great Jamaican session men. There's a bit of back & forth toasting with Trinity on "Crankface", the huge hit "Cokane In My Brain" and other essentials like "Buckingham Plaace", "Plantation Heights" and the title track.

VariousFashion Records – Style & Fashion – A-Class Top Notch Hi Fi Sounds In Fine Style ... CD
Fashion/Soul Jazz (UK), 1980s/1990s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $18.99 22.99
An overdue look at London's Fashion Records label – an important reggae imprint that was to the British scene of the late 20th Century what Trojan was in the 70s! But Fashion also had a quality that did them one better – they recorded and issued work that originated in the UK – documenting a reggae scene that had grown to be as important as Kingston by that time – thanks to trans-Atlantic flows of vinyl, and a fair bit of immigration from the West Indies too! The music here is strongly in the styles that really exploded in London during the stretch – and early digital dancehall material is offset by sharp-edged jungle rhythms, and warmed up by some lover's rock too – but always with a quality that's earthy, and very close to the streets. The label was run out of the basement of the Dub Vendor record store, which gave them a great ear for changes in sound and styles – and they've got a fascinating story that's fully documented here in the notes, in best Soul Jazz fashion. Titles include "Let's Dub It Up" by Dee Sharp, "Dance Pon De Corner" by Papa Face featuring Red Man, "Shot Fe Bust (Marvellous Cain rmx)" by Poison Chang, "Wikkeda" by General Levy & Hard N Pure, "Played By This Ya Sound" by Bunny General, "You're Nicked" by Laurel & Hardy, "Rising To The Top" by Dee Sharp, "To The Bump" by Papa Face & Bionic Rhona, "As You See It" by Cutty Ranks, "Bubble With I" by Asher Senator, "Ruffest Gun Ark (DJ rap mix)" by Top Cat, "DJ Business" by Papa San, "You'll Never Need Somebody" by Janice Walker, "DJ Jamboree" by Papa Face with Keith Douglas, "Heat" by General Levy, and "Sweet Soul Rocking" by Carlton Lewis.

Lester Young & Buddy RichLester Young/Buddy Rich Trio ... LP
Verve, Early 50s. Very Good ... $44.99
Although we were never big fans of Buddy, we can endure him for this nice relaxed Verve session, because it offers some great playing by Prez in a very stripped down setting. The record also features an obscure pianist named "Aye Guy", who is actually Nat King Cole – not named on the cover because of contractual reasons! Cole and Young trade lines in a very nicely relaxed format, and even though the record's mostly all standards ("The Man I Love", "Mean To Me", "I've Found A New Baby", etc), the group works well with the material. The one original track – "Back To The Land" – is a live improvised one, recorded in the studio with no overdubs, and with great results! LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label Verve with trumpeter logo and deep groove! Cover has a split top seam, and an old record store sticker on the back.)

Santo Rei BrazileirosBossa Nova ... LP
Diplomat, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
One of those fake bossa albums, the kind that came out on a dime-store/department-store label, with a phoney group, and the letters BOSSA NOVA in big type on the top! However, despite some dubious origins, the record actually has some nice bossa groovers, especially a few that feature a bigger jazzy ensemble, with tight guitar rhythms, and a nice sax player in the lead. These cuts include "Sazella De Rio", "Promenade Of Sao Paulo", "Sweet Sugar", "Sugar Loaf", and "Desarama" – all of which are pretty darn great, and worth getting the record for! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light aging, an ink stamp and date in pen on back, and small split in the bottom seam.)
