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.
The Tommy McCook album Reggae In Jazz is available from today direct from our website. We also have the album as a download.
Storming big band ska from Granville Williams with 'Wailin'. 'Old McDonald' is actually excellent as well.
Rousing Maytals call and response on the A side with 'My Daily Food' and "One Look' on the flipside. Classic Maytals.
Two slices of Jamaican big band jazz. Glen Millers 'String of Pearls' on the A side. The Anton Karas composition on the flipside from the movie 'The Third Man'. Great stuff.
On the A side 'Take these chains from my heart' has more than a nod to the Hank Williams classic of the same name. Has a lovely harmonica half way through.
'I Am Blue' on the flipside is pretty good.
Freddie McGregors classic Studio One set. Re-pressed in Jamaica at Studio One with the original stampers. Sleeve is also a re-print from the original so it has the characteristics of A Jamaican sleeve. Its new but looks slightly worn in places.
The Cables led by Keble Drummond at their Studio One best. Great album. Recently repressed in Jamaica by Studio one. The sleeves have also been made in Jamaican so has some slight wear evident around the edges of the sleeve. Although it does say on the back sleeve that it was made in the UK!! Check the sound clips for sound quality before you buy. Overall its pretty good in terms of sound.
