Lee PerryReturn Of The Super Ape ... CD
VP, 1978. Used (reissue)... $2.99
Mostly instrumental, but not quite dub, though some cuts do have Perry's vocals on top. Slow rolling and a bit murky, this set bears no relation to the Super Ape set, other than the freaky cover, but is still infused with Perry's unique vison. 10 tracks in all, including the title track, "Bird In Hand", "Psyche & Trim", "Huzza A Haha" and "High Rankin Sammy".

✨✧ Lee Scratch Perry & OthersBlack Ark In Dub (plus Black Ark Vol 2) ... CD
VP/17 North Parade, Late 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99 16.98
A pair of very obscure Lee Perry recordings – back to back in a single CD set! Black Ark In Dub features a host of recordings done by Lee Perry right before his Pipecock Jackson implosion in the late 70s – but presented by former partner Pauline Morrison, who deserves a lot of credit for putting together a host of great dub tracks that might have been lost otherwise! The record first surfaced in the UK around 1980, with the usual very spare set of packaging that seems to mark some of the best dub records from the time – so there's little in the way of actual details about the recordings, but the quality of the bassy, echoey tracks definitely resonates with the strengths of the Black Ark studios at their height Titles include "Cool Rockers", "Jah", "Rasta Man", "Camp", "Dreadlock", "Guidance", "In The Valley", and "Money". Black Ark Vol 2 is a bit different – more of a various artists collection, put together by Pauline Morrison, with material rescued from the Black Ark studios before their implosion – all mixed by Lee Perry with his amazing mid 70s ear for sound – which makes for timeless magic on cuts that include "Ethiopia" by Carol Cole, "Give Praises" by The Silvertones, "How Deep Is Your Love" by The Inamans, "Got To Be Irie" by The Originals, "I Am I Said" by Bunny Rugs, "Jah Love Is Sweeter" by Lacksley Castell, and "Mumbling & Grumbling" by Junior Byles.

Roots Radics/General Echo12 Inches Of Dub/12 Inches Of Pleasure ... CD
VP/17 North Parade, Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99 16.98
A pair of classic dub and vocal albums – tied together beautifully in this set! First up is the instrumental 12 Inches Of Dub – a massive set of rhythms from the legendary Roots Radics – one that's definitely got the dubby elements you'd expect from the title, but which also showcases the kind of rock-solid instrumentation the group always had at the core! The sound is almost effortless here – the kind of spare but brilliant music that only a few studio groups could do this well – with guitar from Eric Lamont, bass from Errol holt, keyboards from Steely Johnson, and all these fantastic echoey drums from Lincoln Valentine Scott – all produced to perfection by Henry Junjo Lawes. The whole thing's great – a mindbending trip through sound and space – with titles that include "Young Banana Dub", "Headlamp Dub", "Dub In Flames", "Confessions Of A Dub Engineer", "Young Gal Dub", and "Carry On Dubbing". Next is 12 Inches Of Pleasure – one of the greatest albums ever from General Echo – a set of raunchy lyrics from the early days of the digital age – set to some fantastic rhythms from the mighty Roots Radics! The general talks and toasts his way through the lyrics – offering up a fair bit of sensual promises in the package – while the Radics provide all these fantastic spacey sounds and trippy rhythms in the background – on titles that include "That's How You Get Your Love Bump", "Old Man Love Young Gal Veggie", "Me Know Everything About She Pum Pum", "Lorna She Love Young Boy Banana", and "It's My Desire To Set Your Crutches On Fire".

VariousStep Forward Youth – Roots Masters From The Punky Reggae Party ... LP
VP, Mid 70s. New Copy ... $16.99 17.98
A fantastic selection of tracks from a time when reggae and punk were really crossing over on the UK scene – the earliest years of the punk rock movement, when bands like The Clash, Slits, and others were bringing the sounds of Jamaica into much greater mainstream circulation! The cuts here aren't reggae punk – or punked-up reggae – but are instead the core tracks that influenced the late 70s UK generation – mostly roots reggae numbers from a few years before, whose politics and production really struck a chord with disenchanted youth in England! Don't worry about the package being too commercial, or too familiar – as the set list is a nicely deep dig, with all the right tracks – titles that include "Rebel" by Barry Ford Band, "The Barber Feel It" by Dr Alimantado & Jah Stitch, "Turn The Heater On" by Keith Hudson, "Pablo Meets Mr Bassie" by Agustus Pablo, "Jah Is I Guiding Star" by Tappa Zukie, "Guess Who's Coming To Dinner" by Michael Rose, "Cool Out Son" by Junior Murvin, "Roast Fish & Cornbread" by Lee Perry, "Mr Cop" by Gregory Isaacs, "Two Sevens Clash" by Culture, and "Heavy Manners" by Prince Far-I.

✨✧ Alborosie & The WailersAlborosie Meets Roots Radics ... LP
VP, 2019. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Italian-born, Kingston-based, legit Rastafari and reggae to his very soul Alborosie doing what he seems to do best these days – collaborating with Jamaican icons, this time the legendary Roots Radics – delivering a surprisingly wonderful dub here with classic level rhythms and spacey touches! What works so well here is the way timeless the most timelessly effective elements – thick bass grooves rumbling over the drums, sputtering echoey dub atmosphere – pair so masterfully with modern-to-futuristic bits of synth and keys. Really nice stuff here where the classic inspired roots reach up to the cosmos. Includes "Dub For The Radicals", "The Revelation Dub", "Midnight Dub Ravers", "Shotta Man Dub", "Chalice And Dub", "Surveillance Dub", "Melanin Dub", "Herbsman Dub", "Flabba Dub Step" and "Outcome Dub".

Village PeopleMacho Man ... CD
Casablanca/Universal (Japan), 1978. Used ... $5.99
The macho aesthetic gets redefined for a whole new audience – as The Village People play with a pastiche of masculine images from daily life, all recast for the post-Stonewall generation! The group bring camp back firmly for the 70s – and are still one of the best-remembered mainstream disco acts of the time – thanks to catchy, poppy grooves that had most of the country humming their tunes, even if they didn't agree with their sexual politics. Grooves are by the hit team that made most of the VP albums strong – Horace Ott arranging, Gypsy Lane backing, and Jacques Morali at the glorious helm of the whole thing – and titles include "Macho Man", "I Am What I Am", "Key West", and "Sodom & Gomorrah".

Harvey MasonMVP – Most Valuable Player (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Arista/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1981. New Copy ... $6.99 13.99
Harvey's fifth and final album for Arista – another win for the funk-soul-fusion MVP! Given that Harvey worked on some of the best fusion sessions of the 70s, it's more than safe to give him "most valuable player" award – because without his drums, many a record would have faltered! Here, though, Mason's much more in his all-out soul mode – singing, playing, and producing in a smooth blend of jazz and modern soul, still with some funky grit in the mix. It not only benefits greatly from his years as one of the great studio players, but even more so for his triple threat talent as a writer, producer and performer. Tracks are all quite tight and catchy – soul groovers with some funk. Feature arrangements from Kenny Mason, Patrice Rushen and Jerry Peters. Titles include "Universal Rhyme", "Don't Doubt My Lovin", "On and On", "You And Me", "Spell", and "How Does It Feel". This expanded edition from Soulmusic.com includes 2 bonus tracks: "How Does It Feel (UK Single)" and "On And On (UK Single)". CD

Louis CatoStarting Now ... CD
RSVP, 2017. New Copy ... $5.99 13.00
Nice work from Louis Cato – a singer with a style that warmly crackles along with his grooves – partly in a soul-based mode, but with more of the depth of the singer/songwriter world – as Louis is clearly an artist who doesn't care which genre he appeals to the most! That's not to say that Cato is very way-out, just very personal – in a wonderfully special head space that comes through both in the way he phrases his lyrics, and puts together the instrumental core of the tunes – which often have his own guitar alongside shifting percussion, bass, and other elements – almost all of which are handled by the singer himself. Titles include "In My Reach", "Back & Forth", "Starting Now", "Light", "Someone Else", "SE Interlude", "Anymore", and "Look Within". CD

Czarface & Ghostface KillaCzarface Meets Ghostface ... CD
Silver Age, 2019. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
A thematic rap triumph from the hip hop superhero team of Czarface – already a veritable supergroup featuring Boston underground veterans 7L & Esoteric with the Wu Tang's Inspectah Deck – bringing in Wu MVP Ghostface Killah for the unsurprisingly massive Czarface Meets Ghostface! One of the standout facets of the Czarface project since the beginning is they way 7L, Esoteric and Inspectah Deck roll with the comic book hero theme without overdoing it in a way that pushes the thematic vibe into gimmickry – major props to 7L for laying down fuzzy funk beats and comic book action in a way that's action-packed larger than life, yet succinct and on target – and doesn't hurt bring in some of the best rappers in the game on each successive effort. Includes "Back At Ringside", "Face Off", "Iron Claw", "Czarcade '87", "Powers & Stuff", "Masked Superstars", "The King Heard Voices", "Listen To The Color", "Mongolian Beef" and "(Post Credits Scene)".

Matao with Atilla EnginTurkish Delight ... LP
Arsivplak (UK), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
A very groovy little record – one that was only ever issued in Denmark, but which stands up strongly next to the best Turkish grooves of the 70s – thanks to a great blend of Turkish percussion, keyboards, and some mighty nice work on guitar! The guitars aren't as totally exotic as some of the classics of Arabesk rock, but still get pretty close – and although there's a fair bit of electric instrumentation on the set, the production is more in a jazz fusion style than a pop/commercial one – which makes for a great sound overall. No vocals at all – and titles include "Seventeen Small Chinese Guys", "Turkish Delight", "Anadolu", "Cool", "Take Care Of Your Baby", and "Dancing Darbuka". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Big LLifestylez Ov Da Poor & Dangerous ... LP
Columbia/Traffic, 1995. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The classic first solo album by Big L – with bedrock DITC production by Buckwild, Showbiz and Lord Finesse – perfectly framing the rhymes by Harlem's finest. Big L didn't leave a huge wealth of recordings before he was taking away from the world, but he started out strong, and this benchmark effort makes a pretty solid testament to his legacy. Alongside some of the period QB hip hop, this one is pretty close to the pinnacle of streetwise east coast 90s hip hop. 12 tracks in all: "Put It On", "MVP", "No Endz, No Skinz", "8 Iz Enuff", "All Black", "Danger Zone", "Street Struck", "Da Graveyard", "Lifestylez Ov Da Poor And Dangerous", "I Don't Understand It, "Fed Up Wit The Bullsh#t", and "Let 'Em Have It L".

✨✧ Ghost NoteSwagism ... CD
RSVP/Ropeadope, 2018. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Great sounds from Ghost Note – a group that's co-led by a drummer and a keyboardist who also plays more drums – which should give you an idea of the funky nature of the album! There's a fuller group on hand for most of the record – guitar, tenor, alto, flute, and more keyboards – but most numbers seem to start from the rhythms first, then layer on the instrumental elements – avoiding vocals for the most part, although there's some snippets of found spoken bits used throughout the set – mostly as commentary! Kamasi Washington guests on the tune "No More Silence", Karl Denson guests on "Weedie B Good", and other titles include "Swagism", "Dry Rub", "Bawllz", "What's Next", "Funk You Muthafunka", "The Lone Angel", "Trifelife", and "Milkshake".
