✨✧ VariousTreasure Isle Ska Rarities (3CD set) ... CD
Treasure Isle/Trojan (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 3CD ... $25.99 28.99
A huge collection of rare singles from the vaults of the legendary Treasure Isle label – a company who was home to some of the hippest tracks from the early days of ska – and also did a great job of getting the music to the UK scene as well! This package goes past the familiar Treasure Isle hits, as the 7" singles feature previously unreleased tracks and rare alternate versions – all packaged up in a great box set with a mighty sharp look. The whole thing is great – nice and raw, and very different than ska revival material of later years – and this 3CD set features all the material that was on the 7" box set done a few years back, plus 74 more bonus tracks! Core cuts include "You Wish Me Bad (take 6)" by The Spanishtonians, "Love Me Or Leave Me (take 1)" by Owen & Leon Silvera, "I'm All Alone (take 1)" by Frank Cosmo, "Oh Misery (take 2)" by The Duke Reid Group, "Thinking Of The Future" by Stranger Cole, "Fooling Around" by The Rio Grandes, "Renegade (take 1)" by The Zodiacs, "Smokey Ska (take 1)" by The Baba Brooks Band, "Practice What You Preach" by Owen & Leon Silvera, "My True Confession (take 1)" by The Silvertones, "Til My Dying Day" by Winston & Slim, "Road To Nowhere (orig mix)" by Lyn Taitt & The Baba Brooks Band, "What A Bailing (take 1)" by Duke Reid Group, The Army Is Searching (take 2)" by Basil Caral & Group, "Storm Warning (take 1)" by Lyn Taitt & the Boys, "Want Me Cock (take 1)" by Owen & Leon Silvera, and "How Know Your Friend (take 1)" by Derrick Morgan – with bonus material by Duke Reid, The Movers, Justin Hinds, Tommy McCook, Froggy, Lynn Tait, Eric Morris, Baba Brooks, Lloyd & Glenn, Derrick & Naomi, The Miracles, The Zodiacs, The Melodies, Sensations, and many many more.

Errol Brown & The SupersonicsTreasure Dub Albums Collection (Treasure Dub Vols 1 & 2/Pleasure Dub/bonus tracks) ... CD
Treasure Isle/Doctor Bird (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
A really wonderful collection of dub tracks built on older grooves from the Treasure Isle label – better known as a hotbed of ska and rocksteady at the end of the 60s! The set features three unusual albums that were created by producer Errol Brown after the initial Treasure Isle label had stopped recording – mid 70s sets that brought new dubby energy to older rhythm tracks from the catalog – all given superb instrumental touches from Tommy McCook & The Supersonics, and greatly abstracted in the studio through the magical talents of Brown on the mixing board! All three records are relatively obscure – Treasure Dub 1, Treasure Dub 2, and Pleasure Dub – and are presented here along with lots of bonus tracks and detailed notes. A whopping 46 titles in all – with tracks that include "Dub With Strings", "Touch A Dub", "Dub So True", "De Pauper A Dub", "I Shave The Barber", "Stealing Version", "Kansas City Dub", "Gemini Rock", "Chucky Love", "Reigning Dub", and lots lots more!

SkatalitesSkatalite (180 gram orange vinyl pressing) ... LP
Treasure Isle/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
A great late 60s Treasure Isle LP of some the early period Jamaican ska recordings by The Skatalites – featuirng the Don Drummond, Tommy McCook and Roland Alfonso line-up! Includes a couple of soulful numbers with Stranger Cole, but primarily built on those benchmark Skatalites instrumentals in their early glory! Includes "Yard Broom", "Carry-Go-Bring-Come", "Twelve Minutes To Go", "Magic", "Strolling In", "Dan-De-Lion", "Apanga", "Eastern Standard Time", "Musical Store Room", "River Bank", "Rough & Tough" with Stranger Cole and more.

TechniquesLittle Did You Know (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Treasure Isle/Doctor Bird (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $12.99
A fantastic debut from The Techniques – and a set that also features a fair bit of work from Jamaican trumpet legend Baba Brooks! The vocal quartet have a great sound that's even more soulful and sharp than some of their contemporaries – maybe the difference that four voices make compared to some of the Kingston trios of the time – which seems to have the Techniques sounding even more heavenly on their harmonies! The instrumentation is great – sharp, but never overwhelming on the vocal tracks – but in just the right mode when Baba Brooks steps out in the lead on an instrumental – and titles include "Queen Majesty", "I Am In Love", "You Don't Know", "Little Did You Know", "I Wish It Would Rain", and "My Whole Life Depends On You". This CD pitches things a bit differently than the original album – in that it features 7 of the 12 tracks, leaving out the instrumentals – then adds in 21 more selections by the Techniques – which makes the 28 track set a complete document of their work with producer Duke Reid in the 60s!

VariousGay Jamaica Independence Time (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Treasure Isle/Doctor Bird (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
A record that's brimming over with pride for the new musical grooves coming out of Kingston – and a rare compilation on the legendary Treasure Isle record from producer Duke Reid! The tunes here are great and gritty – almost as if Reid was finding a way to capture the energy of a sound system in the studio – with lots of booming beats, rumbling basslines, and the kind of standout instrumental and vocal passages that give each tune a special sort of hook! The instrumentals are maybe the most compelling – as they'll use a spare organ line or sax solo to craft surprisingly hypnotic sounds – which are then balanced out strongly by the soulful vocals on the other cuts. Titles include "Boom Shaka Lacka" by Hopeton Lewis & The Chosen Few, "Wake The Town" by U Roy, "Hopeful Village" by The Tennors, "The Ball" by Earl Wire Lindo, "What Does It Take" by Alton Ellis, "Sunday Gravy" by Earl Wire Lindo, "Condition Bad A Yard" by The Ethiopians, "Rule The Nation" by U Roy, "Dynamite" by Tommy McCook, and "White Rum" by Earl Wire Lindo. 2CD set has an insane amount of bonus tracks – 28 more Duke Reid productions, and 17 more produced by Byron Smith – 45 more tracks, including work by King Sporty, Tommy McCook, The Barons, Winston Jarrett, Nora Dean, The Ethiopians, Hopeton Lewis, Alston Barrett, The El Dorados, Dorothy Reid, and many more.

✨✧ Tommy McCook & the SupersonicsGreater Jamaica Moonwalk Reggae (180 gram orange vinyl pressing) ... LP
Treasure Isle/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Fantastic grooves from Tommy McCook & The Supersonics – exactly the kind of record that shows why the group were one of the hippest combos on the Kingston scene of the late 60s! Production is by Duke Reid, who keeps a nice badass vibe to the whole thing – letting bits of funk creep in, and maybe even a bit of early dub – while Tommy and the group move through a range of soulful styles that are mostly instrumental, but which also feature some nice vocal moments too! Titles include "Drink Milk", "Lock Jaw", "Moonlight Groover", "My Girl", "Funkey Funkey Reggae", "Moon Invader", "Stealing Stealing", and "Only A Smile". LP, Vinyl record album
(Orange vinyl pressing – limited to 750 copies!)

Errol BrownDubb Everlasting/Dub Expression ... CD
Doctor Bird (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $12.99
A pair of dub classics from Errol Brown – back to back on a single CD! Dubb Everlasting is a record that might mis-spell the name of its genre, but it's also a set that strips things right down to the core, then adds a very unique touch! Errol Brown works here in the Treasure Isle studios with massive rhythms from The Revolutionaries – but in a session that also includes a mysterious harmonica player too – who uses the instrument to carve out unusual riffs that are sometimes jazz, sometimes bluesy – almost making it feel like War's Lee Oskar is sitting in for a session down in Kingston! The instrument is quite different here than when melodica is used in dub – and titles include "Eva A Dub", "Marigunna Affair", "Babylon Dubbing", "Escape Affair", "Biblical Dub", and "Easy Locks". On Dub Expression, the mighty Errol Brown is at the controls in Treasure Isle – reworking some wicked rhythms played by The Revolutionaries – all with the stripped-down vibe of the best underground dub from Kingston in the 70s! Echo is heavy on the bottom-end of the sound – which makes the grooves ebb and flow in a way that's got a heck of a lot of sonic power – while some of the more isolated instruments over the top step along in a more melodic way – sometimes a bit of organ, guitar, or bubbling bass, depending on the track! The presentation is as stripped-down as the music – but at that mysterious level that only makes the record such a cool little treasure – with tracks that include "Bond Street Rock", "Ranking Marshal", "The Gun Court Dub", "Ital Stew", "Super Tracks", "Dread At The Controls", and "Ghetto Dub".

Marcia GriffithsNaturally/Steppin ... CD
Sky Note/Doctor Bird (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $12.99
A pair of albums from Marcia Griffiths – the well-titled queen of reggae at the end of the 70s! First up is Naturally, a fantastic album from Marcia Griffiths – very much the kind of material that made her one of the best female singers on the Jamaican scene in the 70s! The set's got a soulful sparkle that's undeniable – music that could have, should have (if things were right) gotten Marcia much bigger fame in the US crossover market of the time – as these songs work equally well as laidback soul numbers, even with strong reggae rhythms – thanks to the warmth and class of the vocals! A number of tracks are originals, and titles include "Dreamland", "Tell Me Now", "Melody Life", "Survival Is The Game", "Feel Like Jumping", "Mark My Word", and "Truly". Steppin features Marcia Griffiths at the height of her powers – singing wonderfully and soulfully, in a style that almost transcends her Jamaican roots! While other reggae singers of the period were maybe polishing things up a bit, to reach larger commercial fame, Griffiths seems to be stepping back more into soul, while still working with familiar Kingston rhythms – crafting this mode that's completely compelling, and which has as much personal feeling as some of the more powerful social themes of the roots era. Errol Brown recorded the tracks at Treasure Isle, and titles include "It's Impossible", "Steppin Out Of Babylon", "Where Were Why", "Why There Is No Love", "Give & You Get", and "I'm Hurting Inside".

Tommy McCook & The SupersonicsPleasure Dub ... CD
Pressure Sounds (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $14.99 17.98
A treasure trove of dubbed up numbers from Tommy McCook & The Supersonics – Errol Brown cuts of classic rocksteady rhythms produced by Duke Reid for Treasure Isle Records – trailblazing 70s dubs of the first order that are as slow burningly brilliant today as ever! The set features the best of Brown's pioneering dub versions of classic Treasure Isle rocksteady, with the moving roots rhythms by the Supersonics – with legends Tommy McCook, Ernest Ranglin, Lloyd Spence, Lynn Tait and many more providing the steady backdrop – with echoey washes of the original vocals and other bits of hypnotic reverb. Pressure Sounds releases are always essential, but Pleasure Dub is a top notch compilation, even by their impeccable standards. Hypnotic and hugely influential! 18 tracks on the CD version: "Tracking Dub", "Love Dub", "Dub With Strings", "Lift Off", "Ride De Dub", "Rema Skank", "Silver Hour", "Twilight Rock", "Dreads Leaving Babylon", "I Shave The Barber", "Side Walk Doctor", "Seven Eleven", "Scrubit" featuring Lizzy, and more.

✨✧ Justin Hines & The DominosJezebel (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Island/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A nice heavy platter from former Treasure Isle star Justin Hines and his backing group the Dominos, featuring production by Jack Ruby and the backing of the Black Disciples band, the team that helped Burning Spear craft some of his best roots albums. While Hinds had a rawer, less polished approach to his own singing, and the vocal harmonies of the Dominos followed suit, that's what makes this set stand out from the rest of the pack Island was recruiting at the time, and the Black Disciples craft some tough rhythms for a great mid 70s roots side. Includes "Fire", "Prophecy", a nice recut of his earlier hit "Carry go Bring Home", "Dip And Fall Back", "Natty Take Over" and "What You Don't Know". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Frank StrozierRemember Me ... CD
Steeplechase (Denmark), 1976. Used ... $13.99
A gem of a record – the kind of overlooked 70s session we really treasure! Reed player Frank Strozier was one of the all-time under-discovered greats – and this set reunites him with his old Memphis partner/MJT+3 bandmate, Harold Mabern – a perfect pairing for Strozier's warm and fluid style on alto sax and flute! The pair always worked perfectly together, and on this session of laidback modern soul jazz material, they hit a very nice groove, and play off the best of each other's warm lyrical tendencies. Other players include Danny Moore, Lisle Atkinson, and Michael Carvin – and the set's filled with great original tutnes that include "Kram Samba", "Neicy", "Sidestreet", "Hit It", and "For Our Elders".

VariousHow Many Roads – Black America Sings Bob Dylan ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... $12.99 18.99
The oft-covered Bob Dylan songbook never sounds so soulful – classic interpretations of Dylan's canon from a great, far reaching roster of black artists – from the the ever-stirring Staple Singers, southern soul heroes Howard Tate and OV Wright, charismatic country soul from Brook Benton, great gender role perspective flipped versions by Nina Simone and Patti LaBelle, a funky tamborine take by Con Funk Shun and much more! It's another excellent entry in the Songwriter Series from Ace Records, extra excellent in that it takes an obvious hero of 60s Songwriter – and actually pulls together songs that'll take you by surprise for their depth – whether you treasure Dylan, deep 60s & 70s solo & group R&B, funk, folk soul...or all of the above! Includes "Blowin In The Wind" by OV Wright, "Girl From The North Country" by Howard Tate, "The Man In Me" by The Persuations, "Lay lady Lay" by The Isley Brothers, "Emotionally Yours" by The O'Jays, "All Along The Watchtower" by Bobby Womack, "Maggie's Farm" by Soloman Burke, "Mr. Tamborine Man" by Con Funk Shun and more. 20 tracks in all.
