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".

Pressure Sounds (UK), 1982. New Copy 2CDs ... $18.99
A pair of near-lost albums – back to back, with bonus tracks too! The core album Rockers From The Land Of Reggae is a fantastic set from a very righteous group – Imojah, 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!

CD also features the album Words In Dub – a spare spinoff from the Imojah album – served up here with some fantastic studio touches from Phillip Fullwood of that group!

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.

✨✧ Augustus PabloIn Fine Style ... LP
Pressure Sounds (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2LP ... Temporarily 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. The set features work issued by a few different artists on the label, all with Pablo at the core – and titles include "Far East", "East Man Sound", "Up Warika Hill", "Mountain View Dub (versions 1 & 2)", "Pablo In Fine Style", "Ras Menilik Congo (Harp)" and "Kid Ralph" by Augustus Pablo – plus "Phillips Showcase" by the Pablo All Stars; "Levi Dub", "Raw Dub", "Cool Shade Dub", "Roots Dub" and "Zambian Style" by Rockers All Stars; "False Rumour" by Jah Levi; "Rockers Rock (version)" by Jah Iny; and "Chock Full & Dub" by Synthesis. And as always, a deluxe Pressure Sounds package – with excellent notes! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lee Perry & The UpsettersReturn Of Sound System Scratch – More Lee Perry Dub Plate Mixes & Rarities 1973 to 1979 ... CD
Pressure Sounds (UK), 1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rare and unreleased Lee Perry dubplate mixes – brilliant productions from the creatively fruitful, boundary busting 70s years – with the mighty Upsetters and numbers featuring Junior Murvin, Candy Mackenzie, Leo Graham, Jimmy Riley, George Faith, Jack Lord and The Silvertones! This is the second Sound System Scratch compilation from the deep treasure diggers at Pressure Sounds – who have again assembled staggeringly adventurous and hard to find Scratch productions from an amazing period at Black Ark. A number of the tracks are previously unreleased, others are exclusive dubplate mixes, all incredible – be it smoked out, hazy dubs and surprisingly accessible and soulful reggae. Includes "Righteous Rocking" by The Upsetters, "Get Ready (Bongo Mix) by Junior Murvin & The Upsetters, "Kis Me Mix" by The Upsetters, "I've Got The Dub" by George Faith & The Upsetters, "Enter The Upsetter" by Lee Perry & The Upsetters, "Darkness In The City" by Jimmy Riley & The Upsetters, "Rejoice Jah Jah Children" by The Silvertones and more.

✨✧ Prince Far ICry Tuff Dub Encounter Chapter 3 ... CD
Pressure Sounds (UK), 1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Third in the 4 chapter set of dub LPs produced by the great Prince Far I along with a young Adrian Sherwood, but we suppose that was obvious by the title. This set finds the British upstart dub producer taking over a bit more from Far I, and includes a cast of many of the characters who would later go on to form the axis of the On-U rhytm section, as well as some appearances from the Slits' Ari Up, plus Stever Beresford & David Toop. Top notch rhythms get the deep space modern dub treatment, like "Back Weh", "Shake the Nation", "Homeward Bound", "The Conquest" & "Low Gravity". CD

✨✧ RevolutionariesDrum Sound – More Gems From The Channel One Dub Room – 1974 to1980 ... CD
Pressure Sounds (UK), 1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An incredible set of low rolling, hypnotic dub genius from true reggae Revolutionaries – a batch of amazing tunes centered around the amazing drums of Sly Dunbar – cut in the mid-to-late 70s height of the Channel One groove! This might be the strongest collection of dubs that Pressure Sounds has ever compiled – benchmark work all the way – from the chugging, echoey guitar groove, to the heavy bass lines, to the sublime vocals. Amazing stuff mined from singles on the Channel One, Well Charge and Disco Mix labels. The set starts out with the incredible "Kunta Kinte Version One" – one of the most legendary dub plates ever, and other titles include "Hotter Fire Version", "Rootes Dub", "Pride & Ambition Version", "Dunkirk", "War Version", "Jah Creation Version", "Rude On Marchus Version", "Swell Headed", "Catonine Version", "Tivoli Skank", "Plantation Heights Version" and more.

✨✧ Dennis BovellMek It Run ... CD
Pressure Sounds (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Fresh dubs of rare tracks by Dennis Bovell – all redone recently, but with a vibe that's right up there with the best of classic Kingston! The package has a fascinating origin – in that Bovell had a recent medical ban on playing the bass, so decided to turn the clock back, dig up some vintage tapes, and go to work in the studio of Mad Professor – to turn each number into a dub-heavy masterpiece! The sound is wonderful – still very much indebted to the original basslines, but stretched out much more fully too – with spacey sounds all over the place, really abstracted instrumentation, and the kind of groove that reminds us that they still do make dubs this great – as long as you know where to look. Titles include "Princess Dub", "In The Mix", "Afreecan", "Binghi Man", "Dub Code", "Burden", "After The Storm", "Wallpaper Eraser", "Mek It Run (Run Rasta Run)", and "Floods Of Tears". CD

✨✧ Jimmy Radway & The Fe Me Time All StarsDub I ... CD
Pressure Sounds (UK), 1970s/1980s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Let's forget for a second that Jimmy Radway's Dub I is just about one of the hardest to get pieces of Jamaican wax, so we can talk about what a fierce batch of rhythms we've got here! Add ET's deft hand at the console and you've got one mighty, mighty batch of drum and bass, with some nice licks of horns, keys and guitars dipping and ducking into the reverb-drenched dub stew, and you know you're in a for a treat! Releases on Radway's Fe Me label, as well as his productions for other small Jamaican indies are sought after for their deep roots sound, but unfortunately the original issue of this incredible dub set barely saw the light of day. Pressure Sounds keeps up the pressure with this long overdue reissue, and the band here includes Carlton Barrett, Family Man, Organ D Downie, Bobby Ellis, Dirty Harry, Cedric Im Brooks, Tommy McCook and Vin Gordon. The CD adds several bonus tracks to the original 10 from the LP, for a total of 15 tracks in all, including "Black Rights", "Cinderella", "Micron Way", "Hell & Sorrow", "Awn Yah!", "Mother Liza", "Back To Africa", "She's Mine", "Wicked Have To Feel It", "Black I Am", "The Best Big Youth Version", "This Child Of Mine Version" and "Dub Is My Desire".

Another great set from Pressure Sounds!

Excellent dubs rendered by the heaviest of the heavy mixologists: Tubby, Jammy, Scientist, Lee Perry and Errol T plus some rare, rare DJ versions from Prince Far I and I Roy, all packaged to the usual high Pressure Sounds standards. 19 tracks casting the Royals soulful reggae in a new light, 68 minutes of music in all, with rhythms built in Kingston by the cream of Jamaica's session players.

David BowieNew Career In A New Town – 1977 to 1982 (11CD box set) ... CD
Parlophone, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used 11 CDs ... $99.99
Amazing music from one of our most-treasured stretches of David Bowie's career – that creatively-fertile time when he escaped to West Berlin, hid from the mainstream, and made some groundbreaking records with Brian Eno – then returned to the limelight to remind us all that he was still a hell of a force to be reckoned with! The set includes everything post-Thin White Duke, and pre-Let's Dance – a run of music that's still shaping new sounds on this planet all these many years later. The set begins with Low – the mix of experimental instrumentals and subtle vocal tracks that was a complete change from Ziggy Stardust – and follows with Heroes, Lodger, and Scary Monsters & Super Creeps – all albums that reintroduce some sense of song and lyrical interplay, but at a level that clearly indicates how important Bowie was to the generation of post-punk and new wave as his earlier work was to psych, prog, and glam! But the package isn't just a standard collection of albums – because along with those four studio records, it also features the live album Stage, presented here in two different full mixes – plus a new 2017 mix of Lodger, which really increases the edge. There's also a special Heroes EP, with all the different language versions of the song – and a very cool Re:Call 3 album – which features all the singles that were issued at the time, plus other rare material – and Bowie's very unique take on Bertolt Brecht's Baal. Titles on this album include "Alabama Song", "Crystal Japan", "Under Pressure", "Remembering Marie A", "The Drowned Girl", "The Dirty Song", "Cat People", and even his "Peace On Earth/Little Drummer Boy" duet with Bing Crosby. As with other entries in this complete Bowie series, the presentation is wonderful – album sleeve replicas, great packaging, and lots of notes – kind of a treasure, even if you already own some of the records!
