Linval presents
Dub Landing Vol. 2

The evergreen Greensleeves repackage this essential 1981 LP from Linval Thompson. While the original dubs retain all the experimental energy of Jamaica’s 70s and 80s dub explosion, the real treats here are bonus vocal versions mixed by Scientist and Prince Jammy. The likes of Barrington Levy, Freddie McKay and Papa Tullo come through with verses.

The Harder They Come

The unshakeable masterpiece is back for another ten rounds. We're sure you’ve heard this before, but the influence of the soundtrack to Jimmy Cliff’s 1972 film The Harder They Come cannot be overstated. One of the LPs to take Jamaican music worldwide, the record is a peerless collection of rocksteady, ska and reggae. Literally every song is a classic.

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.

King Tubby
Never Run Away-Dub Plate Specials

King Tubby may have passed away in 1989, but he left behind such a gargantuan wealth of dubs that many of them are only finding their way to the public now. This collection brings together eighteen B-sides and dubplates cut by Tubby, largely over rhythms built by Bunny ‘Striker’ Lee. Some of the source material here includes Johnny Clarke’s ‘Peace and Love in the Ghetto’ and ‘I’m Still In Love’ by Queen Tiny and the Aggrovators.

Dubkasm & Rider Shafique
Enter The Gates

Dubkasm hosts this intercontinental get-together between British vocalist Rider Shafique, Norwegian bassist Bajan Steppa and (on remix duties) the legendary Guyanese dubmaster Mad Professor. ‘Enter The Gates’ is a smoky, strong dub-poetry track in the vein of Linton Kwesi-Johnson and King Midas Sound. Comes with the instrumental, a 'discomix' and Mad Professor's aforementioned re-rub.

Winston Edwards & Black Beard
At 10 Downing Street

Dub subversions of the UK party political system from Winston Edwards & Black Beard. At 10 Downing Street was first released in 1980, and is now being reissued especially to overlap with the upcoming general election, a move I heartily endorse. If politics felt more like this record feels…

Errol Brown & The Revolutionaries
Dubb Everlasting

Though the cover might read Dubb Everlasting, Errol Brown’s 1975 LP is officially known as Everlasting Dub. With the ‘Riddim Twins’ Sly & Robbie providing the rocksteady grooves, Brown spins out these melodic and busy dubs with style and aplomb. The album originally had a very limited run and copies have since fetched a pretty penny on the collector’s market, so this repress represents a good chance to enjoy some of Jamaica’s finest without it clearing out your account.

A cornucopia of big names - Earl Smith on guitar, Tubby and Jammie engineering, Sly & Robbie covering the rhythm section, the list goes on - provide rocksteady grooves and dense fogs of delay over which McCook blows his horn.

Rico & The Rudies
Blow Your Horn

Unavailable on any format since its original 1969 release, Rico & The Rudies' Blow Your Horn is back on Trojan and in full, flaming colour (who doesn’t love orange vinyl?). This is a stellar record, Rico Rodriguez’s soulful West Indian trombone jiving playfully with The Rudies’ London-spiked roots reggae. Rare and very, very cool.

Seekers International
RunComeTest! EP

A hazy pairing of stripped back but snazzy dub jams with contemporary touches adding atmosphere and abstraction. The deep bass and subtle beats are augmented with space echoed voices, pulsing keys and pad textures. Singular stuff from a unique collaborative force, brought from obscurity into the light.
  • Vinyl 12" (BKV014-NC12005)

Johnny Osbourne
Love You Tonight

A pair of highly sought-after Prince Jammy / Channel One productions, finally available together on a single 12” alongside their dub versions. Love You Tonight is upbeat and dissonant, with an oddly wiry, almost post-punk rhythm guitar line. Purify Your Heart is a more laidback rhythm with righteously preachy lyrics. Osbourne is smoothly commanding in both modes. Comes in a Greensleeves branded sleeve.

Dennis Brown
Words Of Wisdom

Reissue of the late Dennis Brown’s 1979 LP Words Of Wisdom. The reggae legend is on top form on this righteous, impassioned collection of roots. Cuts like ‘So Jay Say’ and ‘Don’t Feel No Way’ could chant down Babylon all by themselves. The record also shows Brown’s sensitive side - the soulful ‘Money In My Pocket’ went on to become his signature song.

She Look Like Reggae (Dubkasm)

Bristol reggae meets Bristol reggae here, with Talisman handing over their tune She Look Like Reggae to Dubkasm for two new workings. One strips everything back to the vocal and then builds up again, which the dub version is a minimalist cut that does what it says on the tin. Released as a 7” single in limited numbers, by Sugar Shack.

Iganda
Mark of Slavery / Slow Down

News to this blurb-writer, but three decades ago there was a thriving reggae scene in the Midlands. Though I guess that me now knowing about it proves that the reissues game is one worth playing. Anyway, this is a sick cut, the groove bristling with dancehall energy and the vocals full of power and soul. Coming out on green vinyl - the original pressing, by the way, will currently set you back £175 on Discogs.

This is officially being labeled as a Reggae album.

How about psychedelic pop, especially prevalent in the title track which is a distorted collection of sound. Check this one out and decide for yourself.

Mabrak
Dis Ya Sound

Classy reissue from Jamwax. ‘Dis Ya Sound’ is a pleasant bit of dub-reggae that is served with all the trimmings. A rocksteady riddim, a nice tinkling piano line, and a hook that’ll win any soundclash, the song also features some great percussion licks from the group’s main man Leroy ‘Mabrak’ Mattis. Comes backed with the dub.

You know that these guys can curate a comp, and sure enough Studio One Rocksteady is fully stocked with classic sounds, from the likes of Alton Ellis, John Holt, and The Heptones. Great as an intro, or for the hardcore.

The Specials
More Specials

Hello. Yes I’m fine, thank you - and how are you? Excellent. I’m glad you’re open this early, I’m famished! Could you tell me what The Specials are today? Two-tone ska? Ahh yes, I remember that from the first time I came here back in 1979. Any More Specials on offer? Lounge music? Ooh, that’s a new one. And Northern Soul? Oh, well who doesn’t love a bit of that if it’s done right. Superb. I’ll take the lot. Could you ask the chef to remaster it before he sends it out? Lovely stuff, thanks very much.
