Information

Pat Francis started his career in the mid sixties as a vocalist in The Eagles and The Mediators before working as a salesman for Rupie Edwards’ Success Records. Deejaying as Jah Lloyd he cut numerous hits for his own Teem label before working at the Black Ark with Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry where, under the nom de mic. of Jah Lion, he recorded ‘Columbia Colly’… a classic album that summed up the dread mood of the times.

One of his strongest releases ‘Guys Get A Blow’, credited to Pat Francis on the Teem label, is a rare vocal outing that showcases his excellent voice and production skills (this man was multi-talented!) and which demonstrates all the classic hallmarks of a Black Ark recording. Another high quality Pressure Sounds release on heavyweight vinyl with a custom printed picture sleeve.

  • 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.
