Two new lovely crisp 10s are now available direct from our store. Just in time for the carnival!!
We have 2 new ten inch vinyl only releases in late August early September.
Cornell Campbell 'Jah Give Us Love' rhythm was originally pressed on a Tamoki Wambesi 12'. The first cut has Cornell Campbell on lead vocals backed by The Gaylads on harmonies and Sly and Robbie laying down an uptempo steppers rhythm. Prince Far I with 'Tenastilin' is the second cut on the A side. On the flipside Dj Charlie Chaplin chats that the 'Air is Polluted' and the final cut is the dub version of 'Jah Give Us Love' mixed by Scientist at King Tubbys studio. Four thumping mixes on one ten inch vinyl that are all sourced from original master tapes and come in a hand stamped bag. Lush.
The second ten inch has four excellent dubs. All are top-notch examples of why Scientist's mixing skills were so in demand during the early 1980s. The two cuts on Side 1 are both versions of the Don Carlos 'Plantation' rhythm. Side 2 has a cut of Horace Andy's 'Something On My Mind' titled 'Toussaint L'Ouverture' and the last cut is a mix of 'Pretty Baby' by Gold titled 'Jacques Dessalines'. The Channel One studio was a creative hub for Roy Cousins during the early part of the 1980s and although Roy is better known for his vocals and harmonies with The Royals he was also very sensitive to the instrumental side of his music. Dark brooding mixes that twist and turn as the Channel One Studio is pushed to its limits. The first 500 come in a hand stamped sleeve.
We have just recieved a new set of vinyl 45s from Jamaica. Check the site for details. All pressed from original stampers with some classic labels and some cult tunes including African Chant by the Skatalites.
An excellent extended mix by Phil Pratt of The Inturns 'Nothing is Impossible'. First released on a Chanan Jah 12' in the mid nineteen seventies. The Inturns recorded an album and several singles for Phil Pratt before returning to the their original name The Viceroys. Extended mix of 'Detour' on the flipside. Comes in a hand stamped bag. Crisp.
Three cuts of Junior Brown/ Phil Pratts 'What a disaster'. The rhythm was recorded in Jamaica by Sly and Robbie and was part of the Dial M for Murder lp. The Junior Brown vocal was voiced in the UK and released on The Mystic label. We have an extra mix added to the Pressure Sounds release by The Disciple. A killer release that comes in a hand stamped bag made out of re-cycled card.
Really uplifting vocal from Lloyd Crosdale. Bit of a pearl this one. Nice tune on the Studio One imprint 'London Records'. Backed by Drumbago and the Rebel Brothers on the flipside. Nice spacey dub. Original JA pressing so check the soundclips.
Genius from the master Don Drummond. Ably backed by Lennie Hibbert on vibes on 'Reload' on the A side. On the flipside the more frantic 'Little Willie' by Clue J & his Blues Busters. A pretty good pressing but check the sound clips before you buy.
Excellent tune from The Ethiopians on the A side. A crackling uptempo backing by the New Establishment band with Leonard Dillon reflecting on 'The Prophet' on the A side and tasty version of the same tune on the flipside.
Double header from the Don and the Skatalites. Mellow on one side and the more ska-ish on the Russian Ska Fever cut.
