Lee PerryCloak & Dagger ... LP
Get On Down, 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 20.98
Sweet! One of the harder Scratch efforts to track down over the years, one we're always glad to come across! Recorded in the late 70s, when his wigged out follies at the Black Ark had reached their peak –though there's a bit of debate over whether these tracks were actually recorded at the Black Ark – this is one of the first albums issued after the studio burned to the ground. Whichever side of the argument you fall on, you can't argue with the tracks on this one: spare instrumental Perry-isms with jaunty guitar, loping syncopated drums and bouncing bass, plus Tommy McCook's horn. Titles include "Cloak & Dagger", "Hail Stone", "Musical Transplant", "Liquid Serenade", "Iron Claw", "Rude Walking", "Cave Man Skank", "Pee Wee Special" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Lee Perry & OthersCutting Razor – Rare Cuts From The Black Ark ... CD
Heartbeat, 1970s. Used ... $16.99
Another Lee Perry collection? You bet! There's mountains and mountains of material out there, and this collection selects some choice bits from the fertile Black Ark period, when Perry and crew were in fine style!

Lee Perry & OthersMr Perry I Presume ... CD
Pressure Sounds (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
A wealth of unreleased tracks and unreleased mixes from the studios of the mighty Lee Scratch Perry – material that was mostly recorded during a very fruitful time in the mid 70s, when Lee was turning out a fair bit of tracks that were only issued on one-off dub plates, to be spun by only the hippest sound systems in Kingston and London! Material of this nature is often nicely offbeat – no easy hooks or more commercial elements, and instead the kind of creative approach to overall sound that makes every aspect of a tune worth opening up into play – from the vocals to the rhythms, to the production. Titles include "Ethiopia Land" by Peter & Paul, "Lay Beside You" by Joy White, "Jah I" by Lee Perry & The Upsetters, "Word (acapella)" by The Gatherers, "War & Peace" by The Upsetters, "Keep On Moving" by Augustus Pablo & The Upsetters, "Keep On Trying" by Susan & Bunny", and "Living My Life" by Keith Rowe & The Upsetters.

Lee Perry & The UpsettersReturn Of Django (180 gram orange vinyl pressing) ... LP
Trojan/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99 26.99
An early moment of genius from the legendary Lee Perry – and a set that uses Django imagery from Italian westerns to serve up a "bad boy" version of Jamaican music for the late 60s! Even at this early point, the sounds are mindblowing – rocksteady brought through a really weird sort of filter – so that lots of familiar instruments are turned inside out, and used to create these incredibly far-out sounds – especially the keyboards, which get really weird tunings and timings – and the reed passages, which sometimes have surprisingly exotic touches. Production is a big part of this approach, yet is surprisingly understated too – especially in comparison to later Perry productions – and titles include "Cold Sweat", "Live Injection", "Ten To Twelve", "One Punch", "Touch Of Fire", "Night Doctor", and the classic "Man From MI5".

Pressure Sounds (UK), 1970s. Used ... $13.99
Dub rarities from Lee Perry at Black Ark studio – rumbling riddims and hazy atmosphere that is as hypnotic and incredible as ever – a wealth of material rarely heard outside of sound system dances collected by the unbeatable Pressure Sounds label! A steady, if often seedy rhythm holds this magical dub plate mixes together – with more tripped out touches on the outer edges – be it a trippy use of echo, clattering bits of percussion or harder to explain vibes. Amazing stuff featuring Lee & The Upsetters with Augustus Pablo, Keith Rowe, Winston Right, Clive Hylton, Junior Murvin and others. Includes "Dub Plate Pressure" by Lee Perry, "Lama Lava Mix One" by Agustus Pablo & The Upsetters, "Groove Dubber", "Groove Rider", "Jucky Skank", "Zeal Of The Lord", "Dub Of The Lord" and more by The Upsetters, "Bushdub Corntrash" by Winston Wright & The Upsetters, "Roots Train Number Two" by Junior Murvin & The Upsetters, "Living Dub" by Keith Rowe & The Upsetters and more. 20 tracks in all.

Pressure Sounds (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A stunner! High Plains Drifter collects material from the mighty Lee Perry during the crucially creative and fertile period between 1968 & 1973 – in which he founded the Upsetter imprint and had some chart success. It was such a productive period, resulting in hundreds of singles and a number of albums, that a whole bunch of incredible music made during it has been pretty badly overlooked over the years! This set on the always great Pressure Sounds puts together 20 of those – many of them simmering with quite a funky sound! Killer organ grooves and smoking rhythms highlight numbers by Val Bennett, The Mellowtones, The Ethiopians, Junior Byles and, of course, the amazing Upsetters! Glen Adams and Winston Wright handle those organs, sax by Tommy McCook, bass by Aston Barrett, trumpet by Bobby Ellis and other legendary instrumentalists, plus Lee Perry on percussion and production. Includes "Val Blows In" by Val Bennett & The Upsetters, "Boss" by Count Sticky & The Upsetters, "High Plains Drifter", "The Man With No Name" and "Amigo" by The Upsetters, "It's Growing" by Busty Brown & The Upsetters, "What's Wrong With You" by The Bleechers, "He Don't Love You" by The Silvertones, "Awake" by The Ethiopians, "A Big Joke" by Lee Perry & The Upsetters, "Rockfort Psychedelion" by Count Sticky & The Upsetters, "Iniquity Workers" by The Faithful Brothers, "Rip Up Festival '71" by Junior Byles & Righteous Upsetters and more.

✨✧ Lee Perry & The UpsettersEastwood Rides Again (180 gram orange vinyl pressing) ... LP
Trojan/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
If there's anyone who could make the idea of Italian westerns and Jamaican grooves come together, it's the young Lee Scratch Perry – the mad musician who always had a great talent for mixing it up! Eastwood Rides Again follows the theme of The Upsetters previous classic, Return Of Django – and like that one, the groove isn't just the rocksteady rhythms you'd expect – but also maybe this more spacious version of the style, with a bit more space between the notes than some of their Kingston contemporaries – almost a mode that could be inspired by the spacious soundtrack scoring of the Italian scene, then delivered with a much grittier vibe. Most tunes are instrumentals, and titles include "Eastwood Rides Again", "Salt & Pepper", "Red Hot", "Tight Spot", "Catch This", "Popcorn", and "You Are Adorable". LP, Vinyl record album

Trojan/Antarctica Starts Here, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Brilliant early work from Lee Perry & The Upsetters – and an album that already shows that Perry's got a fantastic production style firmly in place! The rhythms are great – the kind of laidback, bad-stepping grooves you'd expect from The Upsetters – but there's also a special finish to the album, as Lee works the studio knobs with some subtle tricks to make the tunes explode with strange sonic elements – never in a way that gets in the way of the vocals, when they're important – but always enough to augment the record in really thrilling ways. Titles include "Kentucky Shank", "In The Iaah", "Jungle Lion", "Hail Stones", "Ironside", "Soul Man", and "Cold Weather" by The Upsetters – plus "Stick Together" and "Double Six" by U Roy, "We Are Neighbours" and "Just Enough" by David Isaacs, and "High Fashion" by I Roy.

Trojan/Doctor Bird (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $12.99
A pair of unusual Lee Perry projects from the mid 70s – both of which feature a female singer in the lead, and give us a whole new side of Perry's talents! The first half of the set features material from an album issued under the title Lee Scratch Perry Presents Candy McKenzie – a set that features lead vocals from London singer Candy McKenzie, who's got a much deeper soul approach than some of her Jamaican contemporaries – a mode that's sometimes got the sweeter styles that would end up in the lovers rock years, but which also has a wider range that almost has Candy stretching out like a straighter soul singer – on titles that include "Walking In The Sun", "Disco Fits", "Breakfast In Bed", "When The Big Say", "Tell Me A Lie", "Keep Him Strong", and "Jah Knows". Next up is material from the Full Experience sessions – a record that has South African singer Aura working with Lee Scratch Perry, in a style that's got more of the deeper, dubbier elements that Scratch was helping revolutionize at the time! The tunes are rich and righteous, and have all these great little instrumental and production twists – which only makes the lead vocals sound even cooler overall. Titles include "Young Gifted & Broke", "Can't See You", "At Midnite", "Full Experience", and "Nar Soh So It Stay". CD features the bonus track "Disco Devil" – presented in its 12" mix! CD

Pressure Sounds (UK), 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A rare moment from the hazy final days of the Black Ark – deeply dark grooves from Native, and a set that's got a surprisingly strong story too – as told in the detailed liner notes! Lee Scratch Perry works his mystical magic on the then largely unknown Wayne Jobson's Native – and the rhythms and songs here are every bit as solid as you'd hope for from a late 70s Black Ark album – with final touches that were laid on at Randy's, Harry J's, Channel One and Dynamic – even though the music lay unreleased for decades! In addition to Native, Jobson recruits the Black Disciples for backing – and the vibe is deep, dark and heavy throughout – as some tracks are nearly fully dubbed out, while others have the rhythms snapping crisply underneath. Titles include "Rockstone", "Black Tracks", "In A Strange Land", "Late September In May", "King Solomon's Mine", "In The Land Of Make Believe", and "Meet Mr Nobody". CD

Black Ark Vol 2 is a bit different – more of a various artists collection, put together by Pauline Morrison, with material rescued from the Black Ark studios before their implosion – all mixed by Lee Perry with his amazing mid 70s ear for sound – which makes for timeless magic on cuts that include "Ethiopia" by Carol Cole, "Give Praises" by The Silvertones, "How Deep Is Your Love" by The Inamans, "Got To Be Irie" by The Originals, "I Am I Said" by Bunny Rugs, "Jah Love Is Sweeter" by Lacksley Castell, and "Mumbling & Grumbling" by Junior Byles.

Clocktower/Get On Down, Mid 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Pivotal Black Ark material from Lee Perry – with brilliantly tripped out echoey dub production – and scorching instrumentation laid down by the mighty Upsetters! Split roughly in half between Perry's nicely gritty instrumental moodcraft and hazy vocals, this collection features some uber prime Upsetters material. It's all hear – heavily rumbling bass grooves, tripped out, though spiritually resonant vocals and just enough of smoky haze without getting too thick to breathe. Amazing stuff! Includes "Scratch The Dub Organizer", "Bush Weed Corn Trash", "When Jah Come", "Curley Dub", "Serious Joke", "Who You Gonna Run To" and "Tighten Up". CD

✨✧ Lee Scratch Perry & The UpsettersClint Eastwood/Many Moods Of The Upsetters (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Trojan/Doctor Bird (UK), 1969/1970. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
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.

Lee Perry at his best – really finding the best mix of Jamaican rhythms and wilder production that made him a legend! "Jungle Lion" has echoes of Al Green's "Love & Happiness" throughout – blended with lots of echo, weird effects, and a trippy rhythm that's mighty nice! There's also a great break near the start – which follows on the flipside, which is essentially a more freaked-out version of the tune! 7-inch, Vinyl record

A pair of classic Lee Scratch Perry albums – back to back on a single CD! First up is the legendary Upsetter record – revolutionary at the time, still great today – and done with a spare sound that displays the roots of his unique approach! These early tracks don't have the murky smoked-out grooves of his later years, but they're filled with solid songwriting and really inventive production – the sort that laid the groundwork for the legend of the Black Ark years – and which make thing tight, focused, and not the sort of reverb-heavy mess that you might get with some of Perry's lesser imitators. Tracks are mostly easy skanking Upsetters numbers – with titles that include "Tidal Wave", "Heat Proof", "Night Doctor", "Man From MI5", "Dread Luck", and "Thunderball" by The Upsetters – plus "To Love Somebody" by Buster Brown, and "Kiddy O" by The Muskyteers (aka The Silvertones). The set also features the follow-up – Scratch The Upsetter Again – a similar vintage, with the titles "She Is Gone Again", "Mule Train", "Outer Space", "One Punch", "The Denis", "Bad Tooth", and "Soul Walk".

Bunny Lee & OthersDreads Enter The Gates With Praise – The Mighty Striker Shoots The Hits ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Mid 70s. Used ... $13.99
A fantastic tribute to the studio genius of Bunny Lee – and a set that's filled with the kind of tracks that may well knock Lee Scratch Perry right out of the spotlight! Bunny already had a long and varied career in Jamaican music by the time of these tracks – hustling things up right from a grass roots level, then rising to prominence as a producer with a huge amount of inventive new techniques – including the flying cymbal rhythm sound, which was a great balance to some of the deeper, murkier elements in his grooves! These cuts are from a time when Bunny was working together with a host of fantastic singers, many of whom were inspired by the new more righteous modes that were coming into play at the time – opening up with deeper messages, and equally deep performances – in an array of tracks here that still have a tremendous amount of power, even after the space of decades – thanks in part to superb backings by The Aggrovators. The choice of tracks is wonderful, and the whole thing's put together with the usual stellar handling by Soul Jazz – with titles that include "Enter Into His Gates With Praise" by Johnny Clarke, "So Jah Se Dub" by The Aggrovators, "Magnum Force" by Vin Gordon & The Aggrovators, "Real Born African" by Jah Stitch, "King Tubby Dub" by King Tubby meets Tommy McCook & The Aggrovators, "Check Sister Jane" by Dillinger, "The Wormer" by Prince Jazzbo, "You Don't Care For Me" by The Uniques, "Natty Dread Have Ambition" by Shorty The President, "A Land Far Away" by Gene Rondo, "You Should Be Thankful" by Mighty Diamonds, "Marvelous Rocker" by Winston Wright, and "Principle & Dignity" by Jah Youth.

Nat BirchallSounds Almighty ... LP
Tradition Disc (UK), 2018. New Copy ... $24.99
A very different album than usual from the great tenorist Nat Birchall – a set that's no less soulful than his other records, but in a completely different way! The album's a collaboration with producer Al Breadwinner – and has this approach that feels like a lost Jamaican instrumental session from the start of the 70s – as if Nat's playing the role of saxophonist Tommy McCook over some nicely laidback Kingston-styled rhythms! Birchall solos on tenor on most tracks, but also blows a bit of melodica too – and even handles a bit of organ and percussion too – all swept up in a dubby mix handled by Breadwinner, who contributes drums, guitars, and keyboards. There's a bit of trumpet and trombone on the set too, plus baritone sax from Stally – and the quality of the record is excellent, every bit up to the range of the Jamaican legends listed as inspiration on the cover – a lineup that includes McCook, Lee Perry, Augustus Pablo, and Cedric Brooks. Titles include "In The Hills", "Ancient Wisdom", "Youth Iron Rock", "Freedom Style", "Amlak Dub", "Hail Don D Jr", and "Igziabeher". LP, Vinyl record album

Trojan/Radiation Roots (Italy), 1970. New Copy ... $9.99
A record that's got maybe the cheesiest cover of any album by Bob Marley – and a set that's a bit notorious, too – as producer Lee Perry never shared money with the Wailers for the first few years of release! Still, the package is a key part of the Bob Marley story – especially in the years before greater fame on the Island label – as the early Trojan Records release brought together a host of key sides recorded by the group that included Bob and Peter Tosh – all produced by a young Lee Perry with some nicely dark currents in the rhythms that are perfectly balanced by Marley's lead and the harmonies of the trio. The cuts were recorded at Randy's, and titles include "Soul Rebel", "Try Me", "It's Alright", "No Sympathy", "My Cup", "Soul Almighty", "Rebel's Hop", "Corner Stone", "Four Hundred Years", "No Water", "Reaction", and "My Sympathy".

One of the most unusual albums to ever come from the legendary Black Ark studios of Lee Scratch Perry – a set by a duo of Congolese singers, Seke Molenga and Kalo Kawongolo – who are also not to be confused with The Congos, another group that Perry was producing at the time! The album definitely has some reggae elements, but also echoes with a sound that's much more African than most of Lee's other music of the time – a great mixing of the vocals, guitars, and percussion of Molenga and Kawongolo with some of the trippier, dubbier styles of Scratch's production – at a level that seems bent on building a musical bridge across the Atlantic! Titles include "Moto Ya Motema", "Bad Food", "African Roots", "Mengieb", and "Guipimbu Gienu". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Prince Far ITrojan Albums Collection (Free From Sin/Jamaican Heroes/Voice Of Thunder/Musical History) ... CD
Trojan/Doctor Bird (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $16.99
Four fantastic albums from the legendary Prince Far I! The set begins with the classic Free From Sin – Great early work from Prince Far I – a stunning mix of reggae and dub, with a righteous quality that really gives the prince his title amongst 70s Jamaican royalty! Backing is by a version of the Roots Radics – with the excellent Style Scott on drums, Errol Holt on Bass, Bingy Bunny, Sowell and Chinna Smith on guitar, Bobby Kalphat and Snappin on keys, Bobby Ellis and Deadly Headly on horns, and Bongo Herman and Ras Millinek on percussion – but the real key to the sound is the way that Prince Far I produces the whole thing, and mixes his own sinister vocals with the heady, bottom-heavy rhythms – all with a quality that matches Lee Scratch Perry at his best! Titles include "Free From Sin", "Light Of Fire", "Reggae Music", "I & I Are the Chosen One", "Don't Deal With Folly", "Call On I In Trouble", "When Jah Ready You Got To Move", and "Siren". Jamaican Heroes is a totally great album by Prince Far I – and a set that already shows him building that crucial London/Kingston bridge that would be such a big part of his sound! The album features work from Sly & Robbie, and the killer drums of Style Scott on rhythm – but also includes contributions by London hipsters Viv Albertine & Ari Up (of the Slits), and David Toop (noted music writer and historian) – quite a mix, and all brought together wonderfully by the Prince's production, and really unique vocal approach. Titles include "Jamaican Heroes", "Prison Discipline", "Musical History", "Natty Champion", and "Golden Throne". Next up is a classic from Prince Far I – Voice Of Thunder couldn't be a more appropriate album title or moniker! Recorded at Channel One in 1981 with incredible analog dub production, it fully carries the grit, murk, heavy and heady soul of the 70s into the new decade –even if the sound is ultimately a bit different then the what he delivered in the 70s. That thunderous voice toasting over the rhythms is as incredible as ever – over the commanding bass of Professor Larry Silvera, tripped out drums & percussion by Jah Lloyd & Scully, occasional swirling keys by Steely, Tarzan and Tony Asher and the other great Channel One players. Titles include "Ten Commandments", "Every Time I Hear The Word", "Head Of The Buccaneer", "Shall Not Dwell In Wickedness", "Skinhead", and "Hold The Fort". Musical History is one of the last albums ever issued by Prince Far I – and a set that marks a fantastic cap to a too-short career! The Prince's vocal contributions are as impeccable as his dubby production work – and titles include "At The Cross", "More We Are Together", "Take Heed Frontline", "What You Gonna Do On Judgement Day", and "Tell Them About Jah Love".

Sweet 80s fusion from saxophonist Ernie Watts – one of his key albums as a leader in that decade, after countless years as a session player on other folks' records!

And despite the date of the album, there's a nice sense of warmth throughout – instrumentation that's never too forced or commercial – handled by other fusion stalwarts like Don Grusin on keyboards, Lee Ritenour on guitar, and Jimmy Johnson on bass. Titles include "Rock Camping", "One Love", "Red Dress", "Looking Glass", "Where The Spirit Lives", and "Music Prayer For Peace". LP, Vinyl record album

Killer early work from producer Clancy Eccles – a special set that focuses on rocksteady and early reggae productions – most compiled here for the first time ever! The work here is great – raw, soulful, and grooving in ways that move from midtempo to a slightly quicker pace – usually topped with a fantastic singer in the lead, and served up with instrumentation that's spare and right on the money – perfect for the sorts of hard-booming sound systems that were springing up to showcase singles like these! The work here was initially issued as 45s on labels that include New Beat and Doctor Bird, and most tracks on the set have been unavailable for decades – making them even more obscure than material on other Clancy Eccles collections. 26 tracks in all – with titles that include "Mother's Reply" by Lyn Taitt & The Jets, "You Were Meant For Me" by Lee Perry, "You Think I'm A Fool" by Hemsley Morris, "Easy Snappin" by Theo Beckford, "Western Organ" by The Clancy Set, "Bye Bye Love" by Alton Ellis, "Promises" by The Silverstars, "Heart Beat" by Ernest Ranglin, "No Good Girl" by The Mellotones, "Mother's Advice" by The Inspirations, "Please Stay" by Larry & Alvin, "I'll Hold You Tight" by Velma Jones, "Love Brother Love" by Hugh Malcolm, "Hey Mama" by Lee Perry, "Terrible Headache" by The Coolers, and "Let Us Be Lovers" by Velma & Clancy.

Wonderful sounds from that amazing time in American music – a period when it seemed that there were so many records being made, new sounds were always finding a way to get onto vinyl! This collection represents an excellent criss-crossing of modes – exotic styles finding their way into soul, jazz, blues, R&B, and even a little bit of rock – thanks to plenty of weird instrumental modes used to great effect in the studio, and some nicely heavy percussion too! There's no set genre on the collection, but the music is all nicely unified in a fantasy of the exotic – which makes for some plenty playful tracks throughout.

Tremendous work from Junior Byles – a singer with a sweet voice that would have been right at home in the rocksteady years, but which is maybe even more powerful here in a roots session produced by Lee Scratch Perry! That special Perry magic really helps balance things out with Junior's vocals – a raspy edge in the rhythms that reminds us of the deeper qualities of the lyrics – echoed by Byles as he uses his personal soul to enforce their ideas – following a shift in Jamaican music that's similar to the Marvin Gaye shift at the start of the 70s! Titles include "I've Got A Feeling", "Don't Know Why", "Coming Again", "Beat Down Babylon", "A Place Called Africa", and "Poor Chubby". 2CD set features an insane number of bonus tracks – 41 more numbers in all, pulled from singles and other recordings – with titles that include "Curley Locks", "Dreader Locks", "Militant Rock", "Fun & Games", "Motion Dub", "Ungrateful Skank", "Rasta No Pick Pocket", "Come Da Da", "Righteous Oily", "King Of Babylon", "Africa Stand", and "Rub Up Festival 71".

Not the Bob Marley of the famous Island Records years in the 70s, but instead the originator from a few years before – heard here on an excellent collection of early work with The Wailers! The style here is maybe more in line with some of the soul-inspired harmony trios to emerge in Kingston during the second half of the 60s – but already, there's a special sort of vibe to these cuts – especially in the way that Marley's immediately emerged as a hell of a songwriter, with a righteous style that's all his own! The vocals of Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer are fantastic, too – and production is either by the group, or important studio talents like Lee Perry or Leslie Kong. The 24 track set is overflowing with gems – and titles include "Nice Time", "This Train", "Mr Chatterbox", "Wisdom", "Soul Shakedown Party", "Do It Twice", "Soul Captives", "Mellow Mood", "Duppy Conqueror", "My Cup", "No Water", "Small Axe", "Kaya", "Sun Is Shining", "Concrete Jungle", "Lively Up Yourself", "Trench Town Rock", "Who Is Mr Brown", and "Long Long Winter" – the last of which is a great remake of a Curtis Mayfield tune!

Titles include "Mission Impossible" by Randy's Allstars, "Make It Reggae" by Shark Wilson & The Basement Heaters, "Rebel Soldiering" by Johnny Clarke, "Jungle Lion" by Lee Perry, "Take It Easy" by Hopeton Lewis, "Jackie's Theme" by Jackie Mittoo & Randy's Allstars, "Uptown Top Rankin" by Althea & Donna, "Cincinatti Kid" by Prince Buster, and "Bam Bam" by Sister Nancy. 15 cuts in all – and all great!

✨✧ VariousMicron Music Presents – Every Mouth Must Be Fed 1973 to 1976 ... LP
Pressure Sounds (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the deeper collections we've seen from Pressure Sounds – great stuff and largely overlooked numbers from the vaults of the Micron Music label – with crisply chopping rhythms, steady harmonies, and echoey dub from Junior Byles, I Roy, Bobby Ellis, Tommy McCook and many more! Micron isn't among the more famous Jamaican enterprises of the period but the tunes more than live up to the pedigree of its better known peers – with Pete Weston in the production booth for many of the tunes, and a couple with Bunny Lee and Lee Perry at the controls. There's an impressive range of artists and styles, and a number of tunes that have more than a little bit of Motown sounds in the mix, which we totally love. Titles include "Conference At Waterhouse" by Jah Sticah, "Lorna Banana", "Ain't Too Proud To Beg" and "Last Of The Love Songs" by Junior Byles, "Message From The Top" by I Roy, "Revolution Is For The Chinaman" by Pete Weston & The Flames, "Ska Baby" by Bobby Ellis, "Black Organ" by Blacker Black , "Our Rights" by Defenders, "Tribute To Muhammad Ali" by Tommy McCook and more. 20 tracks in all.

✨✧ VariousStep Forward Youth – Roots Masters From The Punky Reggae Party ... LP
VP, Mid 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic selection of tracks from a time when reggae and punk were really crossing over on the UK scene – the earliest years of the punk rock movement, when bands like The Clash, Slits, and others were bringing the sounds of Jamaica into much greater mainstream circulation! The cuts here aren't reggae punk – or punked-up reggae – but are instead the core tracks that influenced the late 70s UK generation – mostly roots reggae numbers from a few years before, whose politics and production really struck a chord with disenchanted youth in England! Don't worry about the package being too commercial, or too familiar – as the set list is a nicely deep dig, with all the right tracks – titles that include "Rebel" by Barry Ford Band, "The Barber Feel It" by Dr Alimantado & Jah Stitch, "Turn The Heater On" by Keith Hudson, "Pablo Meets Mr Bassie" by Agustus Pablo, "Jah Is I Guiding Star" by Tappa Zukie, "Guess Who's Coming To Dinner" by Michael Rose, "Cool Out Son" by Junior Murvin, "Roast Fish & Cornbread" by Lee Perry, "Mr Cop" by Gregory Isaacs, "Two Sevens Clash" by Culture, and "Heavy Manners" by Prince Far-I.

Trojan (UK), Early 70s. Used 3 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Just after the first wave of the skinhead phenomenon died down in the UK, the suedehead thing started to come around, grooving to a new era of Jamaican R&B. Like other sets in this budget series, Trojan's packed a fat bunch of numbers into a very nicely priced set, with 48 numbers in all, including the Heptones "Meaning Of Life", the Kingstonians "Lion's Den", Lee Perry & The Upsetters "Jungle Lion", Dennis Brown "Silhouettes", Horace Andy "Don't Try To Use Me", the Upsetters "Sunshine Showdown" and "Bucky Skank", Shorty The President "Mash Up The Resident", Big Youth "Foreman Vs Frazier" and "Dock Of The Bay", Delroy Wilson "Here Come The Heartaches", Dave Barker "Hot Line", Dennis Alcapone "Musical Liquidator", John Holt 'Reggae From The Ghetto", Errol Brown & The Chosen Few "People Make The World Go 'Round", Winston Groovy "Nose For Trouble", Zap Pow "Lottery Spin", Dave & Ansel Collins "Karate" aand Jimmy Shondell "Snake In The Grass".

✨✧ Dave Barker with The UpsettersPrisoner Of Love (180 gram orange vinyl pressing) ... LP
Trojan/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An album with one of the most classic Trojan Records covers from the early days – and some of the greatest music on the label as well! Soulful singer Dave Barker gets backing here from Lee Perry's Upsetters – all on a nicely stripped-down album that features Scratch himself on production – ensuring a strong edge to the groove! Dave's style has a nice sense of variety – sometimes sweetly heartbreaking, other times screaming with a very raw sense of energy – at a level that maybe gives the whole album more dynamic vocal range than a James Brown album! Titles include the classic "Shocks Of Mighty" and "Prisoner Of Love", plus "My Cup", "Runaway Child", "Never Before", "The Same Game", "Build My Whole World Around You", and "Skanky Children".

Titles include "Get Up Stand Up", "Exodus", "Stir It Up", "Easy Skanking", "No Woman No Cry (live)", "Punky Reggae Party", "Satisfy My Soul", and "Redemption Song". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Nat BirchallSounds Almighty (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Tradition Disc (UK), 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A very different album than usual from the great tenorist Nat Birchall – a set that's no less soulful than his other records, but in a completely different way! The album's a collaboration with producer Al Breadwinner – and has this approach that feels like a lost Jamaican instrumental session from the start of the 70s – as if Nat's playing the role of saxophonist Tommy McCook over some nicely laidback Kingston-styled rhythms! Birchall solos on tenor on most tracks, but also blows a bit of melodica too – and even handles a bit of organ and percussion too – all swept up in a dubby mix handled by Breadwinner, who contributes drums, guitars, and keyboards. There's a bit of trumpet and trombone on the set too, plus baritone sax from Stally – and the quality of the record is excellent, every bit up to the range of the Jamaican legends listed as inspiration on the cover – a lineup that includes McCook, Lee Perry, Augustus Pablo, and Cedric Brooks. Titles include "In The Hills", "Ancient Wisdom", "Youth Iron Rock", "Freedom Style", "Amlak Dub", "Hail Don D Jr", and "Igziabeher". Includes bonus tracks "Iron Rock Dub" and "Igziabeher Dub". CD

For those yet to visit the doctor, this is the perfect perscription –in which Dr Alimantado and Lee Scratch Perry lead you through a top tier side of funky Black Ark reggae with the heavy murky Perry touch and some mad Dee Jay stylings from the best dressed chicken in town. 10 cuts, including the awesome title track, plus "Just The Other Day", "Gimme Mi Gun", "I Killed The Barber", "Unitone Skank", "Can't Conquer Natty Dreadlocks", "Ride On", "I Shall Fear No Evil".

✨✧ VariousFirst Class Rocksteady ... LP
17 North Parade, Late 60s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Raw and soulful Jamaican rocksteady – first class in quality and first class stylistically – strongly representative of the brief, but pivotal rocksteady sound that presaged the reggae revolution to come! The sound essentially stripped some of the bigger arrangements of Jamaican ska and earlier styles – and focuses more on an R&B-influenced sound with impeccable rhythms, achingly soulful vocals, and tight, tuneful songs that really let the singers hit new heights! The anthology is very well done – part of this great 17 North Parade wave in recent years, which almost has them taking over classic reggae comps from Soul Jazz – and titles include "Hold Them" by Roy Shirley with Lynn Taitt & His Band, "Rock Steady" by Alton Ellis & The Flames, "You Don't Care" by The Techniques with Tommy McCook & The Supersonics, "Got To Get Away" by The Paragons, "Revelation" by Alva Lewis, "Hold Me Tight" by Johnny Nash, "Darling Jeboza Macoo" by Stranger Cole, "Napoleon Solo" by Lynn Taitt & The Jets, "The Big Takeover" by The Overtakers, "A Change Is Gonna Come" by Ken Parker, "I Am Lonely" by The Heptones, "Dance All Night" by The Tartans, "Ba Ba Boom" by The Jamaicans, "El Casino Royale" by Lynn Taitt with Cool Sticky, "Return Home" by Alva Lewis, "The Beatitude" by The Uniques, and "I Am The Upsetter" by Lee Scratch Perry.

Toshiko Akiyoshi/Lew Tabackin Big BandLong Yellow Road (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $18.99
A 70s classic from the team of Toshiko Akioshi and Lew Tabackin – a duo who did for the jazz ensemble mode in their generation what Kenny Clarke and Francy Boland did in the 60s! The material here is wonderfully inventive – the kind of compositions that Toshiko wouldn't have even written in her smaller combo years – fleshed out here by a fantastic group that includes Lew Tabackin and Gary Foster on reeds, and Bobby Shew and Don Rader on trumpets – all in a setting where the voices of the individual members really get a lot of space to shine! Titles include "Since Perry", "Opus No Zero", "Long Yellow Road", "First Night", "Children In The Temple Ground", and "Yet Another Tear". CD

Cat/P-Vine (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $14.99
Sweet Miami funk from the team of George "Chocolate" Perry and Clay Cropper – one of the rarest TK albums from the time, and also one of the funkiest too! The sound here is slightly polished, but never too much – a bit more in the sound of bigger Florida groups, like Miami, with a tight groove overall, but still enough sharper funky bits on the edges! George plays bass and Clay handles guitar and keyboards – and the vocals seem to be sung by both parties, often in that slightly-flanged Miami style of the time. Titles include "My Uncle Funky", "Sweet Mary", "Cream Is Rising To The Top", and "Two Different Worlds" – plus the excellent mellow soul track "Free (I'll Always Be)", which has a nice sweet sound in the same vein as work by Milton Wright.

100 Proof Aged In SoulSomebody's Been Sleeping In My Bed (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Hot Wax/Demon (UK), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99
One of the best-remembered groups from the Detroit scene of the early 70s – thanks to the massive title track on this album, and a whole host of other wonderful cuts as well! The group features the great Steve Marcus on vocals – an artist who'd cut some key Northern soul singles for smaller labels in the 60s – but who really bursts out of the box here with great presentation from the Holland Dozier Holland empire! The record features some great songs by General Johnson and Greg Perry – and Perry also handled some of the production work for the record – really pushing the group with the sort of full, rich sound the Chairmen Of The Board brought to their own work. Titles include "Somebody's Been Sleeping", "Too Many Cooks (Spoil The Soup)", "One Man's Leftovers", "Love is Sweeter", "Age Ain't Nothin' But a Number", and "Back Track". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Perrey-KingsleyIn Sound From Way Out ... LP
Vanguard, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $39.99
One of the moogiest records of all time – a legendary LP of "electronic pop music of the future" – sourced and claimed as an influence by everyone from Stereolab to the Beastie Boys! The legendary team of Gershon Kingsley and Jean-Jaques Perry are working here in early tape experiments that chop up quirky analogue electronics – and uses them to produce moogy songbits and space sounds, all with a really groovy beat! There's a simple magic here that has made the album hold up for years, and stand apart from a legion of later imitators with a clear, simple, and effective style that makes the best of all the bleeps and blonks in the set! Titles include "Unidentified Flying Object", "Spooks in Space", "Barnyard In Orbit", "Swan's Splashdown", and "Girl From Venus". A loving musical space party! LP, Vinyl record album

Raymond ScottThree Willow Park – Electronic Music From Inner Space 1961 to 1971 (3LP set/book) ... LP
Basta (Netherlands), 1960s. New Copy 3LP ... $38.99 44.98
An amazing lost trove of work by electronic music Raymond Scott – sounds that were never issued commercially, and which may well represent the last corner of his genius yet to be explored! The music here was all created in Scott's home studio on Long Island – and is a fantastic blend of playful modes and more exploratory sounds – very much in the spirit of Bruce Haack or Perry & Kingsley at the time, and maybe a bit like the electronic work of Piero Umiliani – but with a weirder, wilder vibe overall! There's definitely a few noisy moments – ala Soothing Sounds For Baby – but many of the tracks are short experiments, and also include some jingles or commercial music too – which makes for a fantastically large array of analogue elements throughout. The package also features detailed notes, and a look at this obscure chapter of Scott's career – a time when he was maybe at his most experimental, with amazing results. Titles include "Ohio Bell Mystery", "Idea 35", "Nice Sound 3", "Cindy Alternate", "The Toy Trumpet (demo 1)", "Rhythm Sample", "Tone Stepper", "Super Cheer", "Baltimore Gas & Electric Test", "Nice Set Up 7", "Cyclic Bit 3", "Sparrows (part 1)", "Ripples (fugue)", and "Auto Lite Wheels (effects)".

✨✧ Julius WatkinsJulius Watkins Sextet, Vols 1 & 2 ... CD
Blue Note, 1955. Used ... $22.99
Cool Connoisseur Series reissue that brings together both of the 10" LPs that were recorded by Julius Watkins for Blue Note in the early 50's. This material is a key part of the label's history, but it's also the kind of stuff that they've ignored for years. It's a real treat to have it out again – because the sessions include stellar performances by Frank Foster, Kenny Clarke, Hank Mobley, Duke Jordan, and little known guitarist Perry Lopez, who complements Watkins' playing nicely on both LPs. The tracks include "Leete", "Linda Delia", "Perpetuation", and "Garden Delights" – and the music is an excellent mix of hard bop and modernist ideas, with a spooky sound that is unlike anything else we can think of.

✨✧ Edna WrightOops! Here I Go Again ... LP
RCA, 1976. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A stunner of a solo set from Edna Wright – once the lead singer for Honey Cone, but almost even better on this smooth soul masterpiece from the 70s! The album's got an immediately recognizeable moment in the leadoff cut "Oops Here I Go" – sampled famously by De La Soul and others – but the whole thing's amazing, a killer bit of warm, modern soul put together by the legendary Greg Perry – who makes the whole thing shine every bit as much as his own great Smokin album of the time! Edna's vocals are wonderful – more mature than before, and really stepping out with a proud, sophisticated sort of groove – almost in territory of Jean Carn or Gloria Scott, particularly the latter on some of the album's more grooving cuts. In addition to "Oops Here I Go", other cuts include "Come On Down", "You Can't See the Forest", "Nothing Comes to a Sleeper", "If The Price Is Right", and "Spend the Nights With Me". LP, Vinyl record album
