Keith Hudson
Nuh Skin Up

First-time repress of this pair of in-demand 1979 roots anthems from the undisputed Dark Prince of reggae - Mister Keith Hudson.

Wailing Souls / Al Campbell
Who No Waan Come / Unfaithful Children

Wailing Souls’ ‘Who No Waan Come’ and Al Campbell’s ‘Unfaithful Children’, two prime cuts from the Greensleeves vaults, get their first pressing since 1981. ‘Who No Waan Come’ is a velveteen reggae dream replete with doo-wop harmonies. ‘Unfaithful Children’, on the other hand, is tougher and rootsier with some great dub controls applied by producer Linval Thompson.

Winston Edwards
Natty Locks Dub

Winston Edwards’s 1974 LP Natty Locks Dub is one of those early dub rarities that goes for big bucks - too big for the likes of you and I, valued Norman Records™ customer. Fortunately now Greensleeves have managed to get together a reissue for those of us who like our records to be priced at two figures rather than three. Recorded at the studios of Lee Perry and Joe Gibbs, Natty Locks Dub is a mighty set of melody and mood.

Linval Thompson

Keith Hudson
Rasta Communication in Dub

Sometimes, a wink is enough to communicate a thousand words. Sometimes, you can do with a nod. Other times, all you need is a “ya man.” Such is the wisdom spread by the Rasta Communication in Dub, Keith Hudson’s newest thesis on the subtleties of expression in the world of bass and reverb.

Linval presents
Dub Landing Vol. 2

The evergreen Greensleeves repackage this essential 1981 LP from Linval Thompson.

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.

Keith Hudson
Rasta Communication

Keith Hudson's records are unique in the reggae canon, mainly due to the strength of his personality and his unflinching examination of darker themes- hence his reputation as the 'dark prince of raggae'. While this has made him a slightly marginal figure in a genre mostly celebrated for its relaxed, sunny vibes- Hudson's albums have always been especially revered as some of the deepest and most uncompromising to be found in Jamaican roots music- gaining new audience appreciation with reissues of key records on the ubercool Basic Replay imprint. This reissiue of his 1978 classic 'Rasta Communication' features some of his most memorable songs.

Yellowman
Nobody Move Nobody Get Hurt

Reissue of important 80’s dancehall on Greensleeves. Rather than anything to do with We Are Scientists, Nobody Move, Nobody Get Hurt is sterling material from Jamaican original Yellowman. The title track is especially great, you pretty much need it. And how could you not want that cover starting out at you from your mantelpiece?
