Three new Winston Riley productions and three more from King jammy. All beautifully presented as usual from Dub Store. Top notch.
Both sides of this Treasure Isle pearl are lovely. In particular the 'Sweet Lorna'. Well presented and pressed. Comes from the Lionel Messi of rocksteady (although Messi is possibly taller) Tommy Rock a Shacka of Japan.
Ouch!! This is bad. Meaning very good. The 'Flames in the Street' is a dizzy vamp that is totally hypnotic. If only music being made now was still this vital. I'm Gonna Move on is basically in the same groove. Essential!!
Another fascinating compilation from Numero Group's catalog which finds obscure gospel artists embracing the devil in funk and soul music, featuring primitive choirs, spacious breaks, congas, elderly rappers impersonating the devil, cast recordings and thumping bass.
The first overview of their indie label golden age, Still Here 1967–1973 finds the Notations at a musical crossroads, turning from simmering R&B ballads to socially-conscious soul.
The third installment in Numero’s series of otherworldly gospel, robed funk, and spiritual soul, Apocryphal Hymns is a slim new gospel songbook, penned powerfully by the genre’s lesser-known disciples
