Glen Brown & OthersCheck The Winner – The Original Pantomine Instrumental Collection 1970 to 1974 ... LP
VP, Early 70s. New Copy ... $19.99 23.98
Glen Brown's often the producer here – helming the decks on a host of classic cuts from the early 70s – but he also emerges as the main character too, at times when he steps to the mic and adds in a bit of encouragement to the proceedings! Brown's not really working in deejay mode – he's more in the background on most cuts, but then gets to shine as the lead artist on some of the later tracks in the package – especially the numbers that feature Glen on melodica, blowing the sweet keyboard with a spacious style that's a bit like Augustus Pablo! Titles include "Get Up" by Ron Wilson, "Scatter Light Rock" by Ron Wilson & Lennox Brown, "Dirty Harry" by Tommy McCook & Richard Hall, "Determination Skank" by Tommy McCook & Glen Brown, "Mr Ball Head Aitken" by Bobby Aitken, and the Glen Brown cuts "No More Slavery", "Crisp As A Ball", "Pantomine Rock", "The Winner", "Mitchville Rock", and "School Call".

Harold Butler & The Four CornersButler Did It ! ... CD
17 North Parade/VP, 1978. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
A real sleeper, pure modern soul and disco niceness wrapped up in an unassuming package! Butler's name may be on the lesser known list of Jamaican keyboardists, and even lesser known on the sweet soul scene, but this amazing set from '78 should go a long way towards correcting that! Butler takes the finest session men in Kingston, a batch of great reggae singers and crafts an album that stands right up next to the best of Leroy Hutson or anything you might hear out of Sigma Sound during the same time period, from the more laidback tracks that wouldn't be out of place on a breezy summertime evening to the more uptempo dance floor oriented numbers. There's one or two cuts that lean towards a rootsy island vibe, but overall this is a smoothly stepping modern outing! 13 tracks in all, including "Long Hot Days In The Summer" with Pam Hall, "Beautiful World" with Prilly Hamilton, "Book Of Life" with Pam Hall & Orville Wood, "Let True Love Be" with Ernest Wilson, "Love Forever" with Cynthis Schloss, "One Step Ahead" with Beres Hammond and Butler's own "Yes Music" and "Symphony To A Friend".

✨✧ CongosHeart Of The Congos (40th anniversary 3LP edition) ... LP
17 North Parade/VP, 1976. New Copy 3LP (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
A classic slice of Jamaican roots – and an essential record from the godlike hands of Lee Perry! The set was produced by Perry at Black Ark – and instantly became the stuff of legend, even though the initial version of the album got very limited exposure – which has led to years of differing reissues and versions of the record! Yet the core sound is always very much in place, no matter what the setting – very spiritual lyrics from the group themselves, set to nicely stripped-down rhythms and instrumentation that are a great contrast to the wave of more polished international reggae releases that were garnering mainstream attention at the time. The lasting power of the set is proof that maybe when it comes to roots, you've got to really go to the roots to get it right – as you'll hear on classic tracks that include "La La Bam Bam", "Fisherman", "Congoman", "Children Crying", "Open Up The Gate", and "The Wrong Thing". This great 3LP set features bonus tracks that include "Congoman (12" mix)", "Congoman Chant", "Solid Foundation (Disco Cork mix)", "Foundation Dub", "At The Feast", "Don't Blame It On I", "Neckodeemus", "Fisherman Dub", "Noah Sugar Pan", and "Bring The Mackaback".

✨✧ Keith HudsonFlesh Of My Skin Blood Of My Blood (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Mamba/VP, 1974. New Copy ... $13.99 15.98
A once lost gem! Hudson's voice as a producer remains one of the most unique and idiosyncratic of his era, and this first LP issued under his own name stands as a shining document of his genius. Cut very near the time of his classic dub side Pick A Dub, this album shares the haunting mood that runs through the best of Hudson's work, all the while delivering a resounding roots message. The rhythms are fierce, laid down by Leroy Sibbles, Fully Fullwood, Santa Davis, Count Ossie and Augustus Pablo, a dozen mighty tracks in all: "Hunting", "Flesh Of My Skin", "Blood Of My Blood", "Testing Of My Faith", "Fight Your Revolution", "Darkest Night", "Talk Some Sense (Gamma Ray)", "Treasures Of The World", "My Nocturne", "I Shall Be Released", "No Friend Of Mine" and "Stabiliser".

✨✧ Keith HudsonFlesh Of My Skin Blood Of My Blood with bonus tracks) ... LP
Mamba/VP, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
One of the crowning achievements of the legendary Keith Hudson – a record that was originally issued on his own tiny label, with very little circulation at the time – but a set that's gone on to become the stuff of legend, thanks to Hudson's revolutionary work in the studio! The record has a way of mixing the rough and the smooth, the sweet and the spacey – as Keith delivers some fantastic songs over sounds that were initially recorded in Kingston, then reworked and re-layered in London – at a level that maybe reflects all the subtle changes that were taking place in the global underground of Jamaican music, even at the same time that some of its bigger artists were starting to hit the charts. Chart fame is clearly not what Keith's going after here – as many of the tunes are spare, stripped-down, and as personal as they are political – very dubby in production, even though the record's not a dub set overall – given the focus on warmly soulful vocals upfront in the mix. The whole thing is fantastic, and as essential as any bigger-label reggae release from the time – with cuts that include "Hunting", "Flesh Of My Skin", "Blood Of My Blood", "Testing Of My Faith", "Fight Your Revolution", "Darkest Night", "Talk Some Sense", "Treasures Of The World", "My Nocturne", "I Shall Be Released", "No Friend Of Mine", and "Stabiliser".

Hugh Mundell/Augustus PabloAfrica Must Be Free By 1983 (with bonus dubs) ... CD
RAS/VP, 1978. New Copy ... $13.99 15.98
An incredible moment of righteous energy from the Kingston scene of the 70s – sublime production by Augustus Pablo, and very powerful lyrics from the great Hugh Mundell! Despite the laidback groove of the record, the tunes themselves have as much political energy as American work of the spiritual jazz generation, steeped in Rastafarian inspiration, but delivered by Hugh Mundell with this beautifully fragile vocal style – which somehow almost makes the message in the music even more compelling than if it came across from a more heavy-handed force! Chinna Smith plays lead guitar, and Pablo handles a lot of the piano and melodica lines – and titles include "Let's All Unite", "My Mind", "Africa Must Be Free By 1983", "Why Do Black Men Fuss & Fight", "Book Of Life", "Run Revolution A Come", "Day Of Judgement", and "Jah Will Provide". CD also features the full Africa Dub album, too – but with each dub track right after the regular song on the record – with titles that include "Unity Dub", "My Mind Dub", "Ital Sip", "Revolution Dub", "Africa Dub", "Sufferer Dub", and "Western Kingston Style".

Lee Scratch Perry & OthersBlack Ark In Dub (plus Black Ark Vol 2) ... CD
VP/17 North Parade, Late 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
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.

VP, Mid 70s. New Copy ... $19.99
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.

✨✧ Augustus PabloAncient Harmonies (Blowing With The Wind/Rockers Comes East/One Step Dub/Rising Sun) ... CD
Rockers/VP, Mid 80s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily 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

A record that's a bit different than the usual Lee Scratch Perry album of the 70s – 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.

✨✧ VariousOld To The New ... LP
VP, 2001. Near Mint- 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
While versioning of old rhythms has not only been common throughout the years in the Jamaican music industry, it's served as the basis for a vast piece of reggae overall. Nonetheless compilations like this, where the massive production duo of Steely & Cleevie pay tribute to the wonderful work of Joe Gibbs, aren't all that common, though we'd like to see more of them. 14 mighty updates of already classic numbers: JC Lodge & Junior Kelly "Love Like That (Someone Loves You Honey", Culture & Anthony B "Two Sevens Clash", Sean Paul & Sasha "I'm Still In Love With You", the Mighty Diamonds & Luciano "Identity", Barrington Levy & Cecile "My Woman", Beres Hammond featuring U Roy "Ain't That Loving You", Culture "I'm Not Ashamed", Mykal Rose "Rent Man", Richie Stephens "How Could I Leave", Freddie McGregor "Should I", Glen Washington "Money In My Pocket" and JC Lodge "Someone Loves You Honey".

✨✧ VariousReggae Anthology – The Channel One Story (3LP set) ... LP
VP, 1970s. New Copy 3LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The name Channel One is well known to even the most neophyte aficionados of Jamaican music. One of the cornerstone studios on the Kingston scene, the birthplace of so many classic numbers, any collection is of tracks cut there is going to be heavy.

✨✧ Byron Lee & The DragonairesUptown Top Ranking (clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
VP, Late 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Some of the best work you'll ever hear from the mighty Byron Lee – not the watered-down sound of later records for the tourists, but all the sharp, soulful sounds that made him one of the hippest talents working in the Caribbean scene of the 60s! Byron's got a groove here that's heavy on influences from the American instrumental underground – almost garage guitar roots, turned towards more Caribbean rhythms – sometimes with a Cuban current at the bottom, other times with more of a Kingston or Nassau vibe – always very hip on the rhythmic tip, with loads of electric guitar and keyboards over the top. The tunes are as playful as you'd guess from the titles – and tracks include "Frankenstein", "Last Night", "Jamaican Ska", "Dragon's Paradise", "Goldfinger", "Soul Ska", "Rock Steady", "Slow Run", "Apache", "We Five", "Reggae Makossa", "Dumplin's", and "Who-Dun-It" – plus a dubby funk cover of "Don't Call Me N***er, Whitey", LP, Vinyl record album

Lee Scratch Perry's funky reggae party, put together at the Black Ark, with Boris Gardner, Mickey Boo, Sly Dunbar & Winston Wright. A nice batch of skanking Jamaica funk, with the requisite Black Ark smoke blowing throughout.

✨✧ Lee Scratch PerryBlack Ark In Dub Vol 1 ... LP
VP/17 North Parade, Late 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An unusual album, and one that 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". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Prince JammyPrince Jammy In Lion Dub Style ... LP
Jammy's/VP, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
We're not sure what "lion style" is, but we can definitely say that the album's heavy on dub – a darkly bubbling masterpiece with Prince Jammy at the controls – crafting his magic to grooves by a top-shelf set of Kingston musicians! Winston Wright plays lots of keyboards – organ, clavinet, and even some harpsichord – and the real energy of the rhythms come from the young Sly & Robbie – very much in their prime here, without some of those later modes when they were trying to recopy themselves for the mainstream. Chinna Smith throws in lots of riffing guitar to the echoey brilliance – and titles include "No Bride", "Jammy's In The Arena", "Black Trap", "The Big Apple", "Rough Voyage", "Uhru Express", "King Forever", "Tiger Dub" and "Mystic Feelings".

✨✧ CultureCulture At Joe Gibbs (Two Seven Clash/Baldhead Bridge/More Culture/As Hard The Rest) (4CD set) ... CD
VP/17 North Parade, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A quartet of Culture albums – Two Seven Clash, Baldhead Bridge, More Culture and As Hard The Rest – in 4CD set with each in an LP style sleeve! Two Seven Clash is the mighty debut album from African disciples Culture pairing up with the Mighty Two, Joe Gibbs and Errol Thompson is one of the landmark sets of roots reggae, a defining moment of the genre dropped during the year when two sevens clashed. On Baldhead Bridge, Culture deliver a nice set of harmony roots, another successful collaboration between them and Joe Gibbs, with Errol Thompson on the mix and the Professionals band holding down the rhythms. Sweet rockers vibes from the twilight of the roots era. More Culture is a later effort from the harmony trio, with some solid production courtesy of Gibbs. As Hard The Rest features tracks by Culture plus The Mighty Two and Joe Gibbs & The Professionals. CD

Ritchie FamilyBad Reputation ... LP
Casablanca, 1979. Near Mint- ... $4.99
That's quite a Village People cover on the front – no surprise, as The Ritchie Family are also another key project from VP creator and disco wizard Jacques Morali! All the best Morali modes are firmly in place – that hard-driving, long-grooving style that's perfect for the clubs – with extended grooves that blend core instrumentation with larger soaring strings – all at a length that's bound to get most clubgoers as steamy as the guys on the cover! A newly-recast Ritchie trio of Vera Brown, Jacqui Smith-Lee, and Dodie Draher handles the vocals with a boldness that matches the grooves – and titles include "Sexy Man", "Put Your Feet To The Beat", "Bad Reputatin", and "It's A Man's World/Where Are The Men". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ PVP (Patience, Violet, Pinky)Malende ... LP
La Casa Tropical (Netherlands), 1992. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
PVP are a trio of South African singers who really update their groove with this sweet set of tracks from the early 90s – music that still comes across with some of the charm of 80s soul music from South Africa, but which also shows a stronger house music influence in the rhythms – which makes for some great sound all the way through! Most of the numbers have nicely kicking beats and wonderfully moody keys – which sound great in contrast to the warmer voices of the trio, as they rise up with a nicely righteous, very soulful spirit – a new sense of optimism that really matches the new spirit of their nation at the time. Titles include "Malende", "Singapore", "Si Ya Jola", "Tshilidzi", "Somebody To Love", "Go Down", and "Uli Bambe Lingashoni". LP, Vinyl record album
(Pressed up here as a 2LP set – better sound than the original!)

Big LLifestylez Ov Da Poor & Dangerous ... CD
Columbia, 1995. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
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".

✨✧ MasqueradePinocchio (2LP promo version) ... LP
Prelude, 1979. Near Mint- 2LP ... $7.99
A pretty wild batch of disco tunes – a suite of tracks loosely based around the Pinocchio theme, with vocals by the group Masquerade and arrangements by Boris Midney! The project's definitely got all the best Midney hallmarks in place – especially his penchant for longer tracks with lots of instrumental flourishes – the kind of grooves that build in a slow sort of way, and really let the vocals layer in with the rhythms! The style has lots of echoes of the best Canadian disco modes of the time – and titles include "Cat Tails", "Open The Secret Door", "LOVE/RSVP", and "I'm Attached To You". LP, Vinyl record album
(2LP promo version. Cover has some ring and edge wear, lightly bent corners, a Special Package sticker, unglued bottom seam, and some light stains in back.)

✨✧ Jowe HeadStrawberry Birthmarks ... LP
Glass Modern (UK), Mid 80s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
You might know Jowe Head from his work in Swell Maps and Television Personalities – and this rare solo set has the best hallmarks of his work in either group – some of the amazing sonic experiments of the Swell Maps, mixed with the wit that Jowe brought to his music in TVP! The tunes have an unusual quality – that muted experimentalism that marked the Glass Records label during its short 80s run – almost a legacy inherited from the earliest days of Rough Trade, at a time when that label was going big on the charts – leaving a true indie like Glass to put out overlooked genius like this. Titles include "Carrot & Cane", "Son Of Tar Baby", "Cooling Fins", "Some Other Day", "February", "Chad Valley", "Nearest Faraway Place", and "Snake Eggs". LP, Vinyl record album
