Reviews

  • Jimmy Riley  - Gunman of JAJimmy Riley Gunman of JA

    A previously unreleased version of Jimmy Rileys thoughtful Gunman of JA. As relevant now than when it was originally released according to Jimmy. Both sides come from dub plates that were re-mixed at King Tubbys. Tougher leaner and deeper than the original mixes. The A side is not on the new album ‘Live it to know it’. Essential roots music from Jimmy Riley backed by Sly and Robbie. Comes in a hand stamped sleeve.

  • Jimmy Riley - Everybody Needs MoneyJimmy RileyEverybody Needs Money

    Two cuts of ‘Everybody needs money’ on the A side. A sparse moody observation on social inequality ‘It's the talk of the town, no money going around’. Sound familiar? It came first time around on the ‘Full Moon’ label and has never been re-pressed. The B-side, which has 2 cuts of Reggae Music, also came on the Full Moon label. Engineered by Scientist and was probably recorded slightly later than the A side. Both the versions of Reggae Music are not included on the ‘Live it to know it’ album. Comes in a hand stamped sleeve.

  • Jimmy Riley  - Live It To Know ItJimmy Riley Live It To Know It

    Seventeen track set of Jimmy Riley self productions. Some real obscurities mixed with classic material. Jimmy started out with the Uniques as a harmony singer and then moved on to become a lead vocalist after Slim Smiths death. Jimmy worked with Jamaica's best producers as well as crafting an excellent body of work that were released on his own labels such Pee, Yes and Full Moon. This set focus's on his his self produced protest song between 1975 to 1985.

  • Michael Rose - African QueenMichael RoseAfrican Queen

    Michael Rose's distinctive tone gets on a re-working of Yabby's a King Pharoah's Plague rhythm. Nicely done by King Jammy and comes with a nice dub on the flipside. Excellent.

  • The Inturns  - Nothing is Impossible (extended mix)The Inturns Nothing is Impossible (extended mix)

    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.

  • Junior Brown - What a disasterJunior BrownWhat a disaster

    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.
