  • Tommy McCook/The Skatalites - SauvittTommy McCook/The SkatalitesSauvitt

    Killer double A side from the masters at Studio One. Latin inspired Tommy McCook on the one side with Sauvitt and the Skatalites on the flipside with 'Well Charge' Both well worth having. Check the sound clips before you buy as they are Jamaican pressings.

  • Scientist/Roy Cousins - Four Track 10' E.P.Scientist/Roy CousinsFour Track 10' E.P.

    Roy Cousins is primarily known for his vocal group the Royals. But working with Scientist in his prime in the early 1980s he was able to spin out some formidable versions to his excellent vocal productions. These four cuts are awesome. Seismic and heavy - check em out.
