✨✧ Phillip FullwoodWords In Dub ... LP
Pressure Sounds (UK), 1982. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 19.98
A spare spinoff from the Imojah album Rockers From The Land Of Reggae – served up here with some fantastic studio touches from Phillip Fullwood of that group! The album's even headier and dubbier than its core inspiration – almost as if Fullwood's going back in the laboratory, and continuing some experiments with even wilder results the second time around! The knowledge and wisdom of the lyrics are lost a bit in the dub-heavy presentation, but are more than made up for by the very strong sound. Titles include "Reorganize The Race", "Muzorewa & Yusuluke", "Terror", "Africa Rock", and "Words". LP, Vinyl record album

ImojahRockers From The Land Of Reggae ... LP
Pressure Sounds (UK), 1982. New Copy ... $18.99 19.98
A fantastic set from a very righteous group – one whose name means "unity" in Swahili, and who definitely work here with such a groove! The album's got a perfect blend of rockers energy and deeper dubby sensibilities – very complex in construction, but coming across with this beautifully organic blend of soulful vocals, head-nodding rhythms, and sublime studio abstraction! Winston McKenzie and Philllip Fulwood put the whole thing together, with Fulwood's vocals in the lead on most numbers – and titles include "I've Been Hurt", "No Love", "Weepin & Wailing", "Peace & Love", "Jah Love", and "One Song/Jah Music".

✨✧ Bunny Lee & FriendsNext Cut – Dub Plates, Rare Sides, & Unreleased Cuts ... CD
Pressure Sounds (UK), 1970s. Used ... $9.99
A wealth of rare tracks from the archives of Jamaican producer Bunny "Striker" Lee – tracks pulled from one-off dubplates mixed direct from the studio, and other unreleased tracks pulled from never-heard master tapes too! The music here definitely lives up to Lee's production legend – and, as explained in the notes, these dubs have an extra added dimension than some of his contemporaries' work – as they're mixed from 4 track tapes, instead of 2 – which creates this much deeper sound, and even lot more room for echo! Yet there's also a core compressed competence to the cuts that we really love – rock-solid instrumentation from top-shelf Kingston studio legends, on rare dubs of "Enforcement" by Vin Gordon, "Blood Of Babylon" by Barrington Spence, "Down In A Babylon" by Johnny Clarke, "Ethiopian Girl" by Linval Thompson, "A Friend Indeed Dub" by The Aggrovators, "Crucial Dub" by Prince Jammy, "Satta Dread" by Wayne Jarrett, and "The Gorgon" by Cornell Campbell. CD features two bonus tracks too. CD

Bunny Lee & The AggrovatorsSuper Dub Disco Style ... LP
Pressure Sounds (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $16.99 18.98
Don't think "disco" as in the New York scene at Studio 54 – as these cuts are much deeper and dubbier – served up under the supervision of Bunny Lee by studio maestros Barnabas and Pat Kelly! Instrumentation is by the Aggrovators, but the magic comes equally from the production effects as it does from the massive rhythms by the group – as all the elements are filtered out in space, and criss-cross back and forth in this wonderful way – never too sloppy or experimental, but definitely tripping out with the groove! Vocals are muted when they do make an appearance – and titles include "The Aggrovators Special Dub", "Money In My Pocket Dub", "Portobello Special Dub", "Super Rockers Dub", "The Bomb Dub", "The Killer Dub", and "The Dub Specialist".

Native (Wayne Jobson)Rockstone – Native's Adventures With Lee Perry At The Black Ark – September 1977 ... CD
Pressure Sounds (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
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

Lloyd Parks & We The PeopleMeet The People ... LP
Parks/Pressure Sounds (UK), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 18.98
An incredibly righteous set from Lloyd Parks and his We The People band – a record that may well even top some of the most soulful sets of the roots reggae years! Parks is both bassist and singer on the set – and his strong tones on the bottom really define the slow-stepping rhythms – followed by the group with excellent riffing guitar from Winston Bowen and bobbling organ from Franklyn Waul – all recorded at Joe Gibbs', and featuring the top of Parks' mighty talents – from songwriting, through arranging, to the production for the whole album! Titles include "Reality", "Life Ain't Easy", "Ordinary Man", "Trench Town Girl", "I want To Go Home", and "Ah Rock Dis Yah Bass Line". LP, Vinyl record album

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.

✨✧ Yabby You & King TubbyWalls Of Jerusalem (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Pressure Sounds (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99 16.98
Fantastically righteous work from Yabby You – recording right at the height of his powers, with some tremendous studio help from King Tubby! The songs are as full of the sense of politics and spirit that you'd guess from the album's title – recorded in the later stretch of roots reggae, when dub elements were coming into play and making things sound even more powerful – as Yabby receives mature, masterful accompaniment here from some of the best talents on the Jamaican scene – names that hardly bear repeating, as they continually worked to shape the changing sound of reggae styles in the 70s. Titles include "Walls Of Jerusalem", "Go To School Jah Children", "Fire Round Town", "Tribulation", "Plague On The Land", and "Chant Down Babylon". The core set features six straight vocal tracks, and six more dubs crafted by King Tubby – and this package features rare versions and studio outtakes – with titles that include "Fire Fire Dub" and "Jah Vengeance" by The Prophets, "Greetings" and "Sand In My Shoe Dub" by King Tubby, "Sand In My Shoe" by Tommy McCook, "Love Of Jah" by Vivian Jackson & The Prophets, and "Valley Of Joeasaphat" by Smith & The Prophets.

✨✧ Augustus PabloIn Fine Style ... LP
Pressure Sounds (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Tripped-out greatness from the mighty Augustus Pablo – maybe one of the few cats in the world who could make the melodica sound like a cool instrument! This package digs deeper than some of the straight album reissues on the market – as the Pressure Sounds team have really unearthed some great cuts that originally only appeared as singles – 7" and 12" tracks that mix together heavy, dubby rhythms with Pablo's snakey lines on the breath-blown keyboard – all for a sound that's completely amazing.

✨✧ Hopeton LewisTake It Easy With The Rocksteady Beat ... LP
Merritone/Federal (Jamaica), Late 60s. Very Good- ... Out Of Stock
A seminal set from the great Hopeton Lewis – and a record that not only firmly put the rocksteady sound on the map, but also paved the way for a rich tradition of reggae to come! The groove is nice and mellow – rhythmic on all numbers, but much more relaxed than the ska of a few years before – and Lewis takes his cue from the groove to really stretch out nicely on vocals, working each line of the lyric with these masterful inflections that easily make him one of the most soulful Jamaican singers of the time! Production is nice and raw, but extremely thoughtful – and the instrumentation has this nice crispy feel that furthers the energy of the record, even when mellow. Titles include "Why Must I Cry", "Take It Easy", "Sounds & Pressure", "Hard Ships Of Life", "Music Got Soul", "Cool Collie", and "Rock Steady". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has ring & edge wear, a center split in the spine held with wide clear tape, and light fraying at the opening.)
