Roland AlphonsoABC Rocksteady (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Gay Feet/Doctor Bird (UK), 1968. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99
A great showcase for the instrumental talents of Jamaican saxophonist Roland Alphonso – one of the key players who helped transform the sound of the scene in the 60s! But despite Roland's name on the front, the album's more of a group affair overall – directed by Boris Gardinier, and also featuring wicked rocksteady work from Lyn Taitt on guitar and Aubrey Adams on Hammond – both musicians who get almost as much time in the spotlight as Alphonso himself! Titles include a nice noisy take on the Booker T & The MGs tune "Hip Hug Her" – plus "Narata", "Pure Soul", "Wild & Free", "Little Nut Tree", "That's Life", "Sad Song", and "ABC Rocksteady". PLUS, this 2CD version has a huge number of related bonus tracks – 43 more titles, all produced by Sonia Pottinger, many of which are on CD for the first time – tracks by The Gaylads, Melodians, Ken Boothe, Patsy, Glen & Dave, The Tennors, Junior Soul, The Conquerors, Al & The Vibrators, Roland Downer & Count Ossie, The Soul Lads, Johnny & The Attractions, Dermott Lynch, and many others.

BlundettoSlow Dance ... CD
Heavenly Sweetness (France), 2018. New Copy ... $16.99
The title's a great one for this album by Blundetto – given that the groove is beautifully deep, and the music moves at a pace that would make it hard to do anything but dance slow! Yet the set's not a sleepy one – as it's got all the richness and complexity of previous Blundetto efforts, and show the continuing evolution to dubbier corners of the musical spectrum explored on the past few records – a revision of Jamaican roots, but with a sound that's never standard reggae at all – despite guest appearances from Ken Boothe, Cornell Campbell, and others. Titles include "Good Ol Days", "My Weed My Queen", "Passed The Worst", "Have A Little Faith", "Story Never Told", "Colombette", "Chamber Dub", "History Dance", and "Satta". CD
Also available Slow Dance (180 gram pressing) ... LP 18.99

VariousHot Shots Of Reggae (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Trojan/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
A set that's not only a classic collection of early Jamaican gems on Trojan Records – but one that also stands as a fantastic tribute to the studio genius of early reggae producer Leslie Kong! Kong had an ear that was crucial to the rocksteady scene at the end of the 60s – and here, you'll hear his impeccable choice of songs, singers, and musicians throughout – the kind of all-soul, rock-solid talents that helped push the world of Jamaican music from just being an American offshoot to really finding a voice of its own! The rhythms are fantastic – well-woven, but never muddy – and topped with vocals by solo singers and groups who represent some of the best of the scene. Titles include "Show Me The Way" by Delroy Wilson, "Freedom Street" by Ken Boothe, "Sweet Sensation" by The Melodians, "Monkey Man" by The Maytals, "Cotton Dandy" by Ansel Collins & The Beverleys All Stars, "So Much Love" by Joe White, "Simmer Down Quashie" by The Pioneers, "I'm The One" by Bruce Ruffin, and "There's A Fire" by The Gaylads. LP, Vinyl record album

VariousSly & Robbie Present – Taxi Gang In Disco Mix Style 1977 to 1987 ... CD
Cree (Germany), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy ... $13.99 21.99
A very cool side of the Sly & Robbie legend – a series of recordings the duo made with a range of different singers – all as Jamaican-styled remakes of American soul and club tracks from the 70s! The vibe here is definitely more reggae than disco – with a groove slowed down a lot more than the speed of Studio 54 – and the pair are really coming into their own as creative talents, working on the experience they gained for years on other folks' records – which really helps create the right sort of rhythms for these grooves. As you'd guess from the dates in the title, the set stretches into the digital reggae years – which turned out to be one of the most productive periods for Sly & Robbie – and titles include "Sexual Healing" by Jimmy Riley, "Show & Tell" by Ken Boothe, "Could It Be I'm Falling In Love" by Home T-4, "Inner City Blues" by Delroy Wilson, "Break Your Promise" by Barry Biggs, "You Must Believe In Me" by Junior Tamlins Moore, "Fever" by Marcia Griffiths, and "Rainy Night In Georgia" by Tinga Stewart.

VariousStudio One Ska ... LP
Soul Jazz/Studio One (UK), 1960s. New Copy 2LP ... $28.99 29.99
Another chapter in the Studio One story, as told by the top notch selectors at Soul Jazz, and as with the earlier editions in their Studio One series, this one's another mighty batch of Jamaican rhythm and blues. Like so many other Coxsone Dodd productions, you can hear the foundations of many future generations of Jamaican music running through these titles, 17 jaunty ska numbers laced with jazz inflected solos laid down by Tommy McCook, Roland Alphonso, Jackie Mittoo and the Skatalites, or harmonized vocals courtesy the Ethiopians, Maytals and others. As you've come to expect, this is an ace package with excellent notes and archival photos, loaded down with classic performances and hard to get nuggets, too! With Jackie Mittoo's "El Bang Bang", Ken Boothe & Stranger Cole "Arte Bella", The Wailers "Put It On", The Skatalites "Addis Ababa" and "Exodus", Joe Higgs "I'm The Song My Enemies Sing", Delroy Wilson "I Want Justice", Tommy McCook "Sampson" and "Freedom Sounds", The Maytals "Marching On", Don Drummond "Don Cosmic", Andy & Joey "You're Wondering Now" and more!

✨✧ VariousKings Of Funk – Compiled By RZA & Keb Darge ... CD
BBE/Rapster (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
It's hard to get any funkier than this – and with Keb Darge and RZA making the call, we'd expect nothing less! RZA gets one disc, Keb the other – and the difference between the taste of the two makes for a really expansive collection – one that's got a few familiar bits that we'd almost forgotten about, next to some harder to find numbers that we're plenty happy to have in a format like this! And leave it to BBE to keep the standards high for packaging and recording quality – serving up a whopping 20 tracks in all, with titles that include "Is It Because I'm Black" by Ken Boothe, "From The Love Side" by Hank Ballard, "Party Time" by Brand New, "The MG Beat" by Mighty Generation, "Will You Love My Child" by Anna Raye, "You Can Make The Change" by Madcliff, "Simple Song" by Zebra, "Genuine" by Sharon Jones, "Family Affair 1973" by MFSB, "Don't Joke With A Hungry Man" by Quantic with Spanky Wilson, "Getting Off On Your Loving" by Sking High, "I Can Deal With That" by Dee Edwards, "Do Your Thing" by Lyn Collins, "Stone Small Talk" by Sly & The Family Stone, "Climax" by Ohio Players, and "Ain't No Sunshine" by Harlem Underground.

✨✧ VariousWe Are Ten – The Birthday Presents Heavenly Sweetness 10 ... CD
Heavenly Sweetness (France), 2017. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Heavenly Sweetness label celebrates its first ten years in business – with a special birthday present of all-exclusive unreleased tracks! This set doesn't look back at the previous decade of the label, but instead points the way forward – with a wonderful selection of newly-recorded tracks by some of hte label's best artists – including some who've helped define their groove strongly in recent years, and some whose talents are soon to be presenting full length sets for the company! As with the previous ten years of records, the music here is a fantastic blend of new styles and global elements – some strands of soul, jazz, and hip hop influences – but often used in ways that are completely fresh and contemporary – at a level that's made Heavenly Sweetness one of our go-to labels for new and interesting sounds over the past decade. Titles include "You Party Too Much" by The Mule, "O Circo" by Cotonete", "Have A Little Faith" by Blundetto and Ken Boothe, "An Ba Galba" by Roger Raspail and Vincent Segal, "Tijan Ka (2017 version)" by Edmondy Krater and I Live, "Tijan (Hugh LX rmx)" by Edmondy Krater, "F*ck With The Police" by Florian Pellissier Quintet with Roger Raspail and Nawer, "Hip Hop Muse (Lefto rmx)" by Rongetz Foundation, "Be The River" by Anthony Joseph and Hanyo, and "Move In Silence" by Guts with Patrice, Feve, Djeuhdjoah, and Lieutenant Nicholson.

✨✧ VariousKing Size Reggae (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Trojan/Doctor Bird (UK), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A classic Trojan Records compilation – of the same sort as their famous Tighten Up albums, but a lot more obscure! As with those gems, the approach here is to present the overseas listener with some of the coolest, most cutting tracks from the Kingston scene – numbers that probably saw initial release on dodgy 7" singles, given a proper formal release here – in a package that shows the cream of the crop of the reggae/rocksteady scene, circa 1969! The album's heavy on male singers and groups – and titles include "Tell the Children The Truth" by The Gaylads, "It's Gonna Take A Miracle" and "Now I Know" by Ken Boothe, "Rock It With Me" by The Melodians, "The Bitterness Of Life" by Bruce Ruffin, "Gave You My Love" by Delroy Wilson, "Staircase Of Time" by Tony Brevett, and "Money Day" by The Pioneers. CD features 19 more bonus tracks – most produced by Leslie Kong, and most making their CD debut – work by The Tennors, Bruce Ruffin, The Slickers, Ansel Collins, The Epics, Kingstonians, Glen Brown, The Monster, and others!
