The Cure
The Head On The Door

This is the Cure album to start with. But maybe that's because this is the one I happened to start with. The styles of music on this album vary widely and the lyrics are haunting as always. This is definitely one of my favourite albums and seems to fit a variety of moods and settings. If you only know the Cure's recent stuff, definitely go out a...view item »


DJ Shadow
Endtroducing.....

DJ Shadow’s sample-built 1996 debut album Entroducing….. has all the drama you’d expect from a title with ellipses two-thirds longer than the standard. As tense as it slaps, this is truly one of the the best instrumental trip/hip-hop albums ever made. The deluxe edition comes with expanded lin...view item »


Various
Pulp Fiction

The Pulp Fiction soundtrack is one of the best soundtracks ever released. Really. I mean, where else will you find Dusty Springfield, Al Green and biblical references soaked in the blood of the deserving? Apart from a bible belt high school dance, of course. Vinyl as part of a ‘Back in Black’ release from UMC celebrating the best alb...view item »


Serge Gainsbourg
Lola Rastaquouere EP

The Wrasse label are restoring some of old Gallic smoothie Serge Gainsbourg’s singles back into print on limited edition 7 inches, and Lola Rastaquoure is one of them. Here we have the original tracks, plus the frankly quite unexpected addition of dub versions. It would never have occurred to me to combine ...view item »

Scott Walker
Til The Band Comes In

'Til The Band Comes In' was Scott Walker's sixth record, originally released in 1970 and consisting of two distinct sides: on the first, Walker gives us a bunch of new solo material, while on the flip there are covers on covers. While Walker started as a renowned pop crooner with a baritone and a lot of melodrama, 'Til The Band Comes In' has hin...view item »

Ghostface Killah
The Pretty Toney Album

The charmingly titled ’The Pretty Toney Album’ is American hip hop/rap artist and former Wu Tang Clan member Ghostface Killah’s fourth studio album.

‘Efil4zaggin’ aka ‘Niggaz4life’ is the second and final studio album from gangsta rap collective NWA as the group disbanded later the same year after the departure of Dr Dre. With a line up featuring four of the collectives original members (after the departure of Ice Cube) the album was an instant rap classic reaching Bi...view item »


Mos Def
Black On Both Sides

Super-classic 90’s hip-hop missive from Mos Def. Black On Both Sides, reissued here by the Back to Black label (neat), was Mos Def’s debut album, and it still stands up today. Swinging live instrumentation and a smooth-but-political flow add up to a highly satisfying whole. Double LP pressed...view item »

Tangerine Dream
Phaedra

'Phaedra' is a touchstone in ambient and electronic music alike, often considered to be the Berlin band's greatest record. Soaked in layers of moog synthesizer, organs and piano, the record remains a prime example of what the word soundscape truly means, although Tangerine Dream also had a knack for developing their sound into something more pul...view item »

Faust
Faust

Krautrockers who tended to observe music from a unique angle, Faust first released their wonky self-titled debut in 1970, and it offered up a wide variety of ridiculous sounds between its three sprawling tracks: opener "Why Don't You Eat Carrots" alone feels like a series of vignettes more than a song, mismatching a collection of dissonant ...view item »

Steel Pulse
Handsworth Revolution

Some spiritual cleansing from Midlands legends Steel Pulse. Handsworth Revolution is widely lauded as the pinnacle of UK reggae which is reason enough for a repress. Full of big tracks, big grooves and a bigger message this is definitely one to scoop up on wax. Is it the best thing to come out of Birmingham si...view item »

Reggae Bloodlines

After being signed by Island Records in 1978 from Ian and Roger Lewis of the Inner Circle band, the 'Reggae Bloodlines' LP was swiftly scheduled for release, yet for reasons lost in the mists of time, it never saw issue. Comprising a selection of hits and previously unreleased tracks from the sibling's Top Ranking label, the album featur...view item »

Mighty Diamonds
Ice On Fire

A different beast to their 'Right Time', a mid-70s masterpiece, 'Ice on Fire' has been misunderstood and sidelined for years but has steadily developed a following all of its own. Possibly not the best place to start but this trio of Reggae pioneers offered up something a little different here. ...view item »

Michael Prophet
Serious Reasoning

Another reggae great and another classic plate rescued from collector obscurity, this guy is well loved but relatively underrated. Along with Yabby who he collaborated with, this is another burner from around 1980 that has long needed such a dust-off! Michael George Haynes is his real name. A true Prophet!...view item »


Black Uhuru
Red

Largely considered to be one of the most outstanding reggae milestones of the early 80s (before it went a bit limp, ropey and wet) this amazing, vibrant and celebratory classic was produced by the legendary Sly & Robbie and is widely touted as BU's finest hour. I'm gleefully listening to 'Red' now so can confirm it really is a powerfully ska...view item »

Yabby U
Jah Jah Way

Another wonderful rarity from the vaults, this circa 1980 roots album doesn't actually appear to have ever made it to digital. Thank Jah! Good condition copies are now scarce, and so this Back To Black re-issue is bound to be of great interest to reggae connoisseurs worldwide.  Beautifully remastered on best quality...view item »

Burning Spear
Marcus Garvey

'Marcus Garvey' is an utterly legendary mid 70s roots reggae album produced by Lawrence Lindo. Burning Spear's masterful classic is even more highly praised in many quarters than any long-players by Bob Marley and came complete with a "sister" dub album (not included here) called 'Garvey's Ghost' As a tribute to the great man, one of Jamaica's r...view item »


The End
Introspection

Melting into a better state of things with The End. Introspection is the initial 1969 outing from these Englishmen. This record flopped when it first came out, but time heals all wounds and its now quite highly revered - enough to get a repress in 2014. It's English psych-rock packed with plenty of c...view item »

Scott Walker
Scott

Out of the ashes of The Walker Brothers, came this, the debut album by one of the most singular and original talents to ever grace pop music.

Lee Scratch Perry
Super Ape

Here's a classic. Lee 'Scratch' Perry, a man with fingers in many reggae, dub style pies so I believe. I think he was the producer on the very famous 'The Heart of The Congos' by The Congos and he has been crafting quality dub and reggae ever since. He's still knocking about too, a friend of mine saw him at a festival a few years back, apparentl...view item »

Weezer
Weezer (Blue Album)

Weezer's infamous self-titled debut (otherwise known as "The Blue Album") is one of the few pieces of music from its time that still holds up just as well today. When they made their mark in 1994, Kurt Cobain was dead and the music world had already been over-saturated by mumbling, uninspiring grunge clones. Although Weezer never quite changed t...view item »
