Reviews

  • Jah Joe - Love on the seenJah JoeLove on the seen

    A new four track ten inch from Junior Byles 'Love Power' label. The Jah Joe 'Love on the Seen' cut features a superb vocal performance on the Death In the Arena rhythm. Uptempo steppers of the highest quality. Jah Joe made very few records but this is a one away treat. Comes with the rocking Tubbys dub '78 Style' which Glen Brown had a hand in along with Junior Byles. The B side has Junior Byles as 'Boom B' with Jah Power + the version.

  • Barry Brown - Blackman should never turn his backBarry BrownBlackman should never turn his back

    Barry Brown roots produced by Ripton "Eek-A-Mouse" Hilton in the mid-seventies. Very rare tune to find but no re-issued by Gaffa Blue. Nice dub piece on the flipside of the same tune.
