We now have 3 new 45s from Dub Store available from the Pressure Sounds store. Two from Studio One and One from Merritone.
now available direct from the Pressure Sounds website!!!
2 new Studio 1 45s just arrived direct from Dub Store in Japan.
We have a new Lee Perry album titled 'Roaring Lion' Released on Pressure Sounds in late November. Sixteen tracks of thunderous mixing by the Upsetter at his best. Eleven of the tracks come from one master tape that has been laying on a shelf for 30 odd years. The other 5 tracks are made up of dub plates and alternate takes of previously released tracks. We know what your thinking, another Lee Perry album on Pressure Sounds. This one in our opinion is excellent and is good as any of the previous Lee Perry albums on pressure Sounds. There will also be three new Upsetter produced 45s two of which are not on the Roaring Lion album. There will also be a very limited silk screen edition of just 70 copies of the Roaring Lion album. There will also be a free Perry postcard included if you buy the album direct from Pressure Sounds.
A re-cut of the Studio One song that was called 'Contemplating Mind' recorded by Barrington Spence for Mr Dodd. He re-cut this version for Phil Pratt in the early 70s. Phil Pratt's arrangement is less reliant on the keyboards of Jackie Mittoo and comes with a slower rhythm. The b side is 'Where your footsteps led'. Both sides are excellent soulful early 70s reggae.
An obscure Black Ark rarity that was produced by Phil Pratt at the Black Ark.
Two gorgeous early 70s vocal harmony tracks from The Tidals. Back to back with no dub version. Finely crafted vocals by a group who were very sparsely recorded. Producer Phil Pratt recorded their first ever record 'Rebel Nyah' and then recorded these 2 gems around 1973. Comes in a handmade Pressure Sounds stamped sleeve.
An excellent Delroy Wilson cover of the Marvin Gaye song 'Baby don't you do it'. Produced by Phil Pratt and originally released on the Sun Shot label. A difficult tune to find these days, never been re-pressed until now. Delroy Wilson sings over an incessant Phil Pratt rhythm with Bobby Kalphat keyboards to the front of the mix. Nice rhythmic flipside. An instrumental rather than a dub. Comes in a handmade Pressure Sounds stamped sleeve. A winner.
Killer ska tune that leaps out of the speakers and flys around the room. Catch it while its available. Busty Brown on the flipside with 'Pick Up The Pieces.
Killer Ska 7 that has been unavailable for too long. You need it.
