SymaripSkinhead Moonstomp (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Trojan/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... About November 29, 2019 (delayed)
A collection that betrays the fact that though the Pyramids would go on to become best known under their other name, Symarip for their huge hit "Skinhead Moonstomp", they could deliver all kinds of other great numbers under the ska and rocksteady banner! One of the first West Indian immigrant bands in the UK, Symarip made good on their promise to deliver bouncing numbers in the tradition of the best 60s sounds from Jamaica, building their own version of Studio One and Treasure Isle inspired cuts! This collection features all the material that was issued under the original version of the Skinhead Moonstomp LP, plus all kinds of extra material, including no small amount of previously unreleased tracks, with 46 cuts in all, and titles that include "Skinhead Moonstomp", "Phoenix City", "Skinhead Girl", "Try Me Best", "Skinhead jamboree", "these Boots Are Made For Walkin'", "Skin Flint", "Fung Shu", "Special Beat", "Flour Dumpling", "Soul Crash", "There Goes Me Heart", "Bam Bam Baji", "Hold Him Joe", "I'm A Puppet", "Reggae Shuffle", "Stingo", "Mosquito Bite", "Stop The Train" and "Funky Broadway". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ SymaripSkinhead Moonstomp/Must Catch A Train ... 7-inch
Get On Down, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A killer cut from one of the most strangely-named acts to ever record for Trojan Records – a tune aimed specifically at the growing market of young Brits listening to reggae at the end of the 60s – with a fantastic groove that effortlessly blends soul and rocksteady with some very offbeat lyrics, and a great chorus too! "Must Catch A Train" has a similar percolating groove – almost "Israelites" in rhythm, but a bit murkier overall! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ VariousDo The Moonwalk ... LP
Trojan (UK), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Trojan Records celebrates the spirit of 1969 – the year of the first lunar landing – with a whole host of moon-themed reggae and rocksteady classics from its legendary catalog of Jamaican music! A few of the tunes here are titles that have great fame – like the title track by Nicky Thomas – but they're nicely mixed in with others we might have missed otherwise, and come together in a collection that's far less gimmicky than you might guess from the concept – given the strong roots of all the music in the set. Titles include "Come We Go Moonwalk" by The Kingstonians, "Moon Hop" by Derrick Morgan, "Moon Rock" by Earl Bailey, "Moon Shot" by Karl Bryan, "Creature From The Moon" by King Horror, "Moon Dust" by Ansel Collins, "Man Pon Moon" by Derrick Morgan, "Skinhead Moonstomp" by Symarip, "Apollo 11" by The Moon Boys, "Moon Invader" by Winston Wright, and "Boss A Moon" by Sonny Binns.
