EthiopiansEngine 54 (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Trojan/Doctor Bird (UK), 1968. New Copy ... $12.99
A rocksteady classic from The Ethiopians – but a set that also has plenty more going on as well! The duo work here as a Jamaican counterpart to American soul groups – one of the first and best to hit the Kingston scene – but they also open themselves up to lots of other ideas in the process, and sometimes lay back vocally to just let the album open up and groove! Harmonies are The Ethiopians' strongest calling card – but they're often first directed by the rhythms, then slide in to warm things up and give a larger presence to the slow-stepping, midtempo grooves – all delivered with a classic Kingston head-nodding approach. The album's a key genre-building moment in Jamaican music – and titles include the classic "Train To Skaville", plus "Engine 54", "My Love", "You Got The Dough", "Woman's World", "Long Time Now", and "Unchanged Love". This CD comes with an insane amount of bonus tracks – 17 more titles that include "Do It Sweet", "The Whip", "You Didn't Answer", "In The Park", "Fire A Muss Muss Tail", "You Are The Girl", and "I'm A King".

✨✧ Lee Scratch Perry & The UpsettersClint Eastwood/Many Moods Of The Upsetters (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Trojan/Doctor Bird (UK), 1969/1970. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99
Two early classics from Lee Perry & The Upsetters – back to back in a single set, with an insane number of bonus tracks too! Clint Eastwood is a record that furthers the idea of the outlaw in reggae – as Lee Perry takes the Upsetters past the safer territory of ska and rocksteady, and brings in a few great guests who all get the benefit of his studio magic as well! The rhythms are nice and deep, and produced with that monstrous sense of sound that Scratch had right from the start – soulful vocals bursting out where needed, but all unified together with a mad mix of echo, organ lines, and super-heavy bass. Titles include "Return Of The Ugly", "For A Few Dollars More", "Taste Of Killing", "Clint Eastwood", "My Mob", and "I've Caught You" by The Upsetters – plus "Rightful Ruler" by U Roy, "Prisoner Of Love" by Dave Barker, "Ain't No Love" by Winston Holmes, and "Selassie" by The Reggae Boys. Many Moods Of The Upsetters is a record that has the group stepping hard on some great instrumentals – then backing up some guest singers who really help give the record some shape! The instrumentals often have this great organ line in the front – produced with lots of cool sounds by the young Lee Perry, so that the instrument sounds very different than in Jamaican songs from just a few years before – and also used in ways that would disappear during the dub years later, with this really crazy sound that often gets weird and spacey. The vocal cuts are great too – maybe a bit straighter, but a reminder that Scratch really knows what to do with a singer too. Titles include "Exray Vision", "Low Lights", "Soul Stew", "Games People Play", "Serious Joke", "Beware Fade", and "Mean & Dangerous" by The Upsetters – plus "Cloud Nine" by Carl Dawkins, "Can't Take It Anymore" by David Isaacs, and "Goosy" by Pat Satchmo. 2CD set features 24 bonus tracks – more cuts by The Upsetters, Busty Brown, Lennox Brown, The West Indians, Pat Satchmo, The Bleechers, Lloyd Douglas, The Ethiopians, and others.

VariousGay Jamaica Independence Time (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Treasure Isle/Doctor Bird (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99
A record that's brimming over with pride for the new musical grooves coming out of Kingston – and a rare compilation on the legendary Treasure Isle record from producer Duke Reid! The tunes here are great and gritty – almost as if Reid was finding a way to capture the energy of a sound system in the studio – with lots of booming beats, rumbling basslines, and the kind of standout instrumental and vocal passages that give each tune a special sort of hook! The instrumentals are maybe the most compelling – as they'll use a spare organ line or sax solo to craft surprisingly hypnotic sounds – which are then balanced out strongly by the soulful vocals on the other cuts. Titles include "Boom Shaka Lacka" by Hopeton Lewis & The Chosen Few, "Wake The Town" by U Roy, "Hopeful Village" by The Tennors, "The Ball" by Earl Wire Lindo, "What Does It Take" by Alton Ellis, "Sunday Gravy" by Earl Wire Lindo, "Condition Bad A Yard" by The Ethiopians, "Rule The Nation" by U Roy, "Dynamite" by Tommy McCook, and "White Rum" by Earl Wire Lindo. 2CD set has an insane amount of bonus tracks – 28 more Duke Reid productions, and 17 more produced by Byron Smith – 45 more tracks, including work by King Sporty, Tommy McCook, The Barons, Winston Jarrett, Nora Dean, The Ethiopians, Hopeton Lewis, Alston Barrett, The El Dorados, Dorothy Reid, and many more.

✨✧ VariousMerritone Rock Steady Vol 3 – Bang Bang Rock Steady 1966-1968 ... LP
Dub Store (Japan), Late 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily 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.

✨✧ VariousGreater Jamaica Moonwalk Reggae/Reggay At Its Best (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Trojan/Doctor Bird (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A pair of wonderful lost albums – presented here with a huge amount of bonus tracks too! First up is Greater Jamaica Moonwalk Reggae – a set that showcases the newly tight groove of the Kingston scene, courtesy of producer Duke Reid – with an especially strong emphasis on basslines and organ, with less of the full horns than you might have found a few years before! The set's maybe worth it alone for the fantastic funky number "Lock Jaw" by Dave Barker – but the whole thing's great, and other titles include "Only A Smile" by Glen Adams, "Drink Milk" by Justin Hinds & The Dominoes, "Moonlight Groover" by Winston Wright, "Stealing Stealing" by John Holt, "You Were To Be" by The Gladiators, "Quando Mi Amor" by The Ethiopians, and "Funky Funky Reggae" by Dave Barker. Reggay At Its Best is a fantastic showcase for the tenor talents of Tommy McCook – the saxophonist who was as important to the Kingston scene as Jr Walker was to Motown and Detroit – equally able to stand on his own as an instrumental lead, and really keep a strong soul instrumental spirit! Tommy blows with the Supersonics group – and titles include "Tribute To Don", "Live Injection", "Doctor No Go", "The Saint", "Bongo Nyah", and a version of "The Liquidator" – and the album also features a few non McCook cuts, "Joy Ride" by Karl Bryan and "Zylon" by Winston Wright. 2CD set features a massive 38 bonus tracks from the same time – all other Duke Reid numbers, with work by Tyrone Evans, The Melodians, The Silvertones, Errol Dunkley, The Gold Tones, Girl Satchmo, Vincent Gordon, The Righteous Flames, The Yard Brooms, and many others.
