ScientistScientist Wins The World Cup ... LP
Greensleeves/Dub Mir, 1982. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99 29.99
A stone classic from Scientist – part of his magical run of records in the early 80s – each with a cool cartoony cover, and unparalleled selection of dubs! The work on this set is so heady, there's not even titles for most tracks – billed simply as "Ten Dangerous Matches", followed by five more "Extra Time" cuts, and even a "Golden Goal" – all keeping up the soccer theme of the cover, while Scientist makes magic with the Roots Radics band – which features some especially great saxophone work from Deadly Headly! Trombone is great, too – played by Nambo – and the record also features a bit of echoey vocals from Hugh Jarrett, Wayne Jarrett, and Johnny Osborne. Great stuff throughout! LP, Vinyl record album

Kingdom/Superior Viaduct, 1981. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock

In The Kingdom Of Dub find's Scientist working his dub alchemy on a dozen Roy Cousins productions laid down by Sly & Robbie, Santa & Flabba, Ranchie McLean,Pablo Black and Skully.

✨✧ AggrovatorsDubbing At King Tubby's – Classics From The Golden Age Of Dub ... CD
17 North Parade, 1970s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $23.99 25.98
An incredible compilation of classic era dub work from King Tubby's – played by producer Bunny Lee's legendary Aggrovators band and showcasing the mixing skills of Tubby, Prince Jammy, Scientist and others! This is prime era hypnotic dub of the finest caliber – originally issued on Jamaican 45s, and hard-to-find for decades! The great Blood & Fire label did the dub digging community a major solid by issuing the material on some wonderful compilations, but even those had been out of print for a couple decades before this much needed, sprawling VP/17th North Parade assemblage. Includes "A Bag Of Wire Dub", "Dub Of Rights", "A Heavy Dub", "A Living Version", "How Long Dub", "Breaking Up Dub", "Poor Barber", "Sub To The Rescue", "King Tubby's In Fine Style", "Horn For I", "Jah Love Rocker's Dub", "Stealing Version", "Fatter Dub", "Satta Dread Dub", "Tubby Get Smart", "Beat Them In Dub", "Version Of Class", "Peace And Love In The Dub", "Thunder Rock", "Channel Is A Joker", "Peace And Love In The Dub", "Step It Up In Dub", "Chapter Of Money" and more. 44 tracks on 2CDs!

KhruangbinHasta El Cielo ... CD
Dead Oceans, 2019. New Copy ... $14.99
A trippier version of Khruangbin than we're used to – but that's maybe no surprise, given that the whole album's a dub version of the Con Todo El Mundo record – with all the best funky currents of that sweet set, and some wilder modes as well! Drums and bass really get a great workout – and the production isn't the usual Jamaican-inspired dub, but a mode that's maybe partly got a David Axelrod quality – as these guys use the instrumental moments to open up into all these dark, moody corners – while still keeping things nicely funky overall. Titles include "With All The World", "Sisters & Brothers", "How I Love", "Four Of Five", "Hasta El Cielo", and "Order Of Operations". Also includes bonus Scientist mixes – "Rules (Scientist dub)" and "Como Te Quiero (Scientist dub)". CD

✨✧ Prince JammyPrince Jammy Destroys The Invaders ... LP
Greensleeves (UK), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99 25.99
This is sort of a Prince Jammy riff on the format of the popular Junjo Lawes-produced Scientist dub series. Nonetheless, he steps up to bat, and indeed defeats the evil planet munchers, with the able help of the Roots Radics rhytnm section. Recorded at Channel One and mixed at Tubby's – and how can you argue with that!? Fat, heavy rhythms dubbed into deep, deep outer space by the heir to the throne! 8 tracks in all, including "Conspiracy On Neptune", "Saturn Bombardment", "Attack on Ganymede", "Martian Encounter", "The Great Red Spot", "Life On Uranus", "Final Destruction" and "War In The Asteroid Belt".

✨✧ Linval ThompsonLinval Presents Space Invaders (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Greensleeves, 1981. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $39.99 40.98
A wicked little record, and one that lives up to its Space Invaders theme right from the start – thanks to a host of sweet electronic touches from Scientist, over a set of killer head-nodding dubs from Roots Radics! The group themselves are in totally top form – massive bass from Flabba Holt and drums from Style and Santa – topped with wicked guitar licks, and some sweet organ lines from Winston Wright – but it's clearly Scientist who's the star of the show, for the way he cooks the elements together and comes up with a sound that more than does justice to the extra-cool cover! Familiar elements are nicely abstracted, and juxtaposed with clever shifts in the studio – all to create massive dubs that include "Beam Down", "Red Shift", "Time Warp", "Cloning Process", "Pulsar", "Laser Attack", "Dematerialize", "Fission", "Super Nova Explosion", and "Quasar". 2LP version features bonus vocal tracks – by Wayne Wade, Wailing Souls, Sammy Dread, Linval Thompson, and Johnny Osbourne!

VariousRubadub Revolution – Early Dancehall Productions From Bunny Lee ... LP
Pressure Sounds (UK), Early 80s. New Copy 2LP ... $26.99 29.99
Sweet early 80s tracks from the legendary Bunny Striker Lee – work that shows him stepping effortlessly into the dancehall modes of the time – still a master of rhythm, and of finding the right sort of talents to add to his sound! The package features a nice mix of bigger names and up-and-coming talents – and also includes a number of unissued tracks from Bunny's archives, which fit perfectly alongside the singles in the set – music that's mostly in a late roots-into-dancehall mode, instead of some of the bigger, more commercial work that would circulate under the dancehall name a few years later. As always with Pressure Sounds, the presentation, sound quality, and notes are great – and titles include "Gun Fever" by Frankie Jones, "People Cruel (12" mix)" by Cornell Campbell & Errol Scorcher, "Lay Down Flat" by Devon Edwards, "Revolution Fighters" by Simple Simon, "Too Popular" by Trevor Castell, "Babylon No Badda Haul & Pull Me" by Devon Edwards, "A Place Called Zion" by The Paragons, "The Right Time (12" mix)" by Neville Brown & John Wayne, "Bandulo (12" mix)" by Cornell Campbell & Scientist, "Know Yourself Mankind" by The Paragons, "Lazer Beam (12" mix)" by Don Carlos & Papa Tullo, and "I Man Come Again" by Johnny Clarke.

✨✧ Linval ThompsonI Love Marijuana (180 gram green vinyl pressing) ... LP
Trojan/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A record with a striking title – and a set that really marked the full promise of Linval Thompson in the 70s – a dubby classic that's every bit as strong on the vocal side of Thompson's skills, as it is the production side! The album was recorded at Tubby's with the Revolutionaries band and an uncredited Junjo Lawes (who would later go on to cut some of the best dub albums ever, with Scientist) – and the vocals have this great style of cresting between sweeter modes and more biting modes – particularly when wrapped around the social themes that always made Thompson stand out. Titles include "I Love Marijuana", "Don't Push Your Brother", "Dread Are the Controller", "The Children of the Ghetto", "Not Follow Fashion", and "Jamaican Colley Version". LP, Vinyl record album
(Individually numbered limited edition of 750 – on heavyweight "Marijuana" colored vinyl!)

✨✧ Augustus PabloAncient Harmonies (Blowing With The Wind/Rockers Comes East/One Step Dub/Rising Sun) ... CD
Rockers/VP, Mid 80s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Four 80s albums from the mighty Augustus Pablo – served up here in a special 2CD set! First up is Blowing With The Wind – seminal 80s work from Augustus Pablo – a set that's maybe got a bit more digital and electronic touches in the mix, but which still maintains that fantastic mix of dub and melodica that made the man so unique! The tunes have very righteous rhythms at the core, and a bit of keyboards mixed in with Pablo's lead – and maybe a few spacey touches around the edges that come off in a really great way! Augustus handles all the keyboards, arrangements, and production – and titles include "Twinkling Star", "Creation Blues", "Zion UFO", "Drums To The King", "First World Call", "This Song", "Twenty One Years Later", and "Ancient Harmonies". Rockers Come East is a sweet digital set from Augustus Pablo – a mid 80s set that has him mixing his melodica with other keyboard work on Casio and Yamaha – both instruments that are used with the otherworldly, snakey groove that makes Pablo so great! The rhythms are maybe slightly more 80s, too, but still very spare and stripped down – and Phillip Smart helps on the mix, while Clive Brown and Squidley provide some drumulation. Titles include "Pablo Meets P Smart In LI", "Progression Dub", "Revelino Dub", "Babylon Loosing Dub", "Sun Ray Dub", "Jah D Special", "Rockers Come East", Dubbing The Oppressors", and "Zion Seals Dub". One Step Dub is dubby genius from the great Augustus Pablo – a set that continues the spirit of his best 70s work in this mode, but with a sound that has a few slight 80s touches! The overall sound is still very nice and spare – laidback, gently tripping in the rhythm department, and with both melodica solos from Pablo – and some other keyboard work that really echoes the moody, spacey, snakey sound of his work on the blown instrument! The title names are a bit basic, but that hardly matters, given the sound of the set – and tracks include "Riot Dub", "In The Red Dub", "Hanging Dub", "Night Patrol Dub", "Rastaman Dub", "Zion Way Dub", and "Dubbing King James". Rising Sun is fantastic work from Augustus Pablo – and a great demonstration of the way that the best of the classic 70s Jamaican artists were able to shift their styles slightly during the 80s, but still come up with a sound that was every bit as great! There's more digital elements here than before – especially in the crackle of some of the rhythms – but in ways that are right around the edges, and which echo the sort of effects that might have been cooked up by tape in the studio – used here to bring a nice bite to the mix of melodica and melodica like keyboard lines from Pablo! Mixes are by Scientist – and titles include "Dub Wiser", "Rising Sun", "Fire Red", "Jah Wind", "Pipers Of Zion", and "African Frontline". CD

✨✧ Reggae StringsReggae Strings/Reggae Strings Vol 2 (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Trojan/Doctor Bird (UK), 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great pair of records – plus a huge amount of bonus tracks too! First up is the debut Reggae Strings album – one of the most unique albums on the Trojan label during the 70s – and a surprising hit for the company too! The approach here is very unusual – as the cuts here all are earlier Trojan vocal singles that had larger backings provided by UK maestro Johnny Archey – then stripped of their vocals and presented as instrumentals! As you'd guess by the names, Archey adds strings to the Kingston rhythms – but the approach is surprisingly nice – almost like early reggae rhythms coming into play with the best of the UK sound library generation – with results that are as groovy as that description might imply. Titles include "World Without Love", "One Woman", "Let The Man Go", "Leaving Rome", "Pantomime", "God Bless The Children", and "Young Gifted & Black". Reggae Strings 2 is a set that follows nicely on the first Reggae Strings effort on Trojan – and, like the first, a package that features older vocal tracks with the lyrics stripped away, all to provide a focus on the fuller orchestrations of Johnny Archey! The approach is cooler than you'd guess – lots of nice charts that bring a bit of 70s smooth to the sound of Trojan – almost like Barry White was recording down in Kingston – on titles that include "How Many Times", "Jump Hallelujah", "Strange World", "It's Too Late", "Tell It Like It Is", "Scientist", "Jamaica Jerkoff", and "Sweet Bitter Love". 2CD set features 25 bonus tracks too – all the original vocal tunes used for the strings versions – with work by Bob Andy, The Dynamites, Greyhound, Bob & Marcia, Nicky Thomas, Danny Ray, Merlene Webber, The Uniques, Pioneers, Winston Groovy, and others! 51 tracks in all – and a nice set of notes.

✨✧ Ultramagnetic MCsBasement Tapes 1984 to 1990 ... CD
Tuff City, Late 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great look at the earliest side of the Ultramagnetic MCs – that crucial New York group who were the original home of Kool Keith, in an initial lineup with Ced Gee and Mo Love, soon to be joined by Tim Dog too! The record somewhat lives up to its title – in that it's compiled from early tapes that show the group in formation, but already with a really sharp edge – a quality that's a bit like catching them working out lyrics in a small club setting – or tapping into the feed from their mixer during early sessions in the studio. There's a bit of controversy about the release – but given their relatively short time together, the whole thing is a great addition to their too-small catalog. Titles include an early version of "Smack My Bitch Up" – plus "Get A Job", "Space Groove", "Make You Shake", "Ya Not That Large", "Brainiac", "Scientist", and "Smoking Dust". CD

VariousBlood On The Cats – The Psychobilly Compilation – Even Bloodier Edition (2CD set – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Anagram (UK), Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99 20.99
A legendary compilation, and maybe one of the first that documented the big wave of older rock-inspired groups who emerged during the generation of punk rocks – new groups who were definitely influenced by the sharp, short, quality of the generation – but who also used the moment as a way to get back to basics too! The "psychobilly" name might be a bit slightly wrong-worded – as these guys aren't really psycho, or psychedelic either – and come to think of it, they're not always rockabilly too – but they do really get back to the raw roots of early sounds from the late 50s – offering up a different sort of intensity than their punk rock contemporaries. Titles include "Swamp Baby" by Sunglasses After Dark, "Cannibal Run" by The Guana Batz, "Graveyard Stomp" by The Meteors, "Murder In The Graveyard" by Screaming Lord Sutch Loony Party, "Red Headed Woman" by Panther Burns, "Wild Women (version)" by Alien Sex Fiend, "The Day The Sun Burned Down" by The Escalators, and "Dinosaurs" by The Stingrays. This hugely expanded edition offers up another 44 tracks, with work from The Cramps, Cannibals, Scientists, Pearl Harbour, The Sharks, Polecats, Blue Cat Trio, The Rattlers, Inca Babies, Vibrators, Brilliant Corners, Gun Club, Nomads, King Kurt, Voodoo Dolls, Primevals, Bananamen, Raymen, Erazerhead, Krewmen, X-Men, Prisoners, and many others!

✨✧ VariousAfro Rhythms Vol 1 – Singles & Remixes 1999 to 2001 ... LP
Comet (France), Late 90s/Early 2000s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An excellent look at early work on the Comet Records label – the Paris imprint who really helped the Afro Funk sound of the 70s evolve a few more notches as the 21st Century dawned – thanks to key work with Tony Allen, and a host of other groundbreaking artists too! Comet are first of all to be commended for bringing Allen back to the ears of a global audience – and also for helping him really find that new groove that he then followed for the past two decades – heard here on both one of his tracks, and some of his performances with others! The work here is a whole new explosion in African rhythms and inspirations – modes that really shift the role of Paris from its initial post-colonial recordings of the 60s and 70s. All tracks were only issued as singles, long out of print – and titles include "Airya (Catalyst rmx)" by Tony Allen, "Drum" by Sons Of The Scientists featuring Eska, "Push Your Mind (break beat rmx)" by Doctor L, "Brotherhood" by Cinematic Orchestra, and "Take A Rest (Chateau Flight rmx)" by Psycho On Da Bus.

✨✧ VariousCold Waves Of Color Vol 6 ... LP
Color Tapes/Lion, Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Special sounds from the deep work of underground electronic music that lurked way down below the British charts of the early 80s – music by a host of different groups who still hold strong to the early, darker post-punk styles of Sheffield and Manchester – mostly using analogue electronics at a time when the digital world was really cleaning things up! These cuts are fantastic – every bit as mindblowing as all the previous volumes in this game-changing series – and as with those releases, most of the cuts here were only issued as cassettes or singles back in the day – if they saw any circulation at all! Titles include "After Dusk" by Berserk In A Hayfield, "Cabaret Futurama" by Neutron Scientists, "Electro Switch" by Silicon Valley, "Dimension 2" by Modern Art, "Radioactive" by Disintegrators, and "Controlled Experiment" by Echophase. LP, Vinyl record album
