Cornell Campbell — Jah Give Us Love

Malky, Aug 24, 2014
Another strong release from Pressure Sounds via the seemingly extensive vaults of producer Roy Cousins. A 10" time machine that effortlessly transports the listener back to Reggae's golden era. Have to confess to being completely unaware of these tracks, which is always a bonus.

As it says, four versions of a very good C. Campbell Steppers.

Prince Far I's voice of thunder is always welcome.

Charlie Chaplin, a strangely under-recorded artist I feel, recorded one of my all time favourite couplets, "Every morning mi wake up, mi under God vibes, Pray fi the wicked man ship it capsize." Great tone o' voice, and as they used to say, "he sit down on a riddim like a lizard pon limb. A great toast from the bong diddly-diddly era of toasting.

Not sure who mixed the Dub but it's just the way I like it, lots of percussion and hand drumming.

  • 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.

  • L. Crosdale  - Reggae MusicL. Crosdale Reggae Music

    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.

  • Don Drummond  - ReloadDon Drummond Reload

    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.
