Ken Boothe
Freedom Street

Reissue of an LP by the man they used to call ‘Mr. Rocksteady’. After a string of hits for Studio One in the 60s, Ken Boothe took his style to Leslie Kong’s Beverley Records in 1970. Freedom Street, the resulting album, is full of great songs - the title track is a masterpiece of Jamaican soul - and proves a great outlet for Boothe’s wonderful, Wilson Pickett-esque voice. This is the first-ever vinyl reissue, courtesy of Real Gone Music.

Ken Boothe
Everything I Own

Described by some as the most iconic Jamaican soul singer of his generation, Ken Boothe’s Everything I Own is back on vinyl for the first time since its original release in 1974. The record is a must have for reggae fans and soul fans alike. The release features the original analogue mastering and album art for true authenticity. Available on vinyl LP.

Ken Boothe
Inna de Yard

Legendary Jamaican singer Ken Boothe has returned to the studio to record a full-length album for the first time in twenty-five years. Ken recorded Inna de Yard inna de yard, e.g. outside in nature, using only acoustic instruments. He and his group return to some of the tunes from Ken’s past, adding the deep maturity of his older voice. On Wagram.

Ken Boothe / Kush McAnuff
Let the Water Run Dry / Black to I Roots (Extended Version)

The Inna de Yard label present two pieces of quality original Jamaican reggae. Ken Boothe’s Let The Water Run Dry is angst-ridden riposte from a spurned lover delivered over minor-key skank, whereas Kush McAnuff’s Black To I Roots is a proud and brass-heavy history lesson. 12” release.

Dealing / Memories

Basic Replay is responsible for some of the cutting edgiest reggae and dancehall releases of the past few years, and Gregory Isaacs and Ken Boothe’s newest 10” is a comfortable fit in their impressive stable of bob-your-head-on-the-upbeat repertoire. Dealing / Memories features a ton of weird sounds and catchy vocals.
