A re-cut of the Studio One song that was called 'Contemplating Mind' recorded by Barrington Spence for Mr Dodd. He re-cut this version for Phil Pratt in the early 70s. Phil Pratt's arrangement is less reliant on the keyboards of Jackie Mittoo and comes with a slower rhythm. The b side is 'Where your footsteps led'. Both sides are excellent soulful early 70s reggae.More info
An obscure Black Ark rarity that was produced by Phil Pratt at the Black Ark. Roy Graham was a singer friend of Phil Pratt' Phil and along with Bobby Kalphat came to a recording session where they were cutting tunes with singer Al Campbell. 'Why should you' has a strong Lee Perry influence both in the vocal style and in the production. Bobby Kalphat's rhythmic melodica stabs away alongside Roy Graham's vocals. A funky 45 that has never been re-pressed since its original small first run on the Sunshot label. Has a nice Black Ark version on the filpside. Comes in a handmade recycled and stamped Pressure sounds sleeve.More info
An excellent Delroy Wilson cover of the Marvin Gaye song 'Baby don't you do it'. Produced by Phil Pratt and originally released on the Sun Shot label. A difficult tune to find these days, never been re-pressed until now. Delroy Wilson sings over an incessant Phil Pratt rhythm with Bobby Kalphat keyboards to the front of the mix. Nice rhythmic flipside. An instrumental rather than a dub. Comes in a handmade Pressure Sounds stamped sleeve. A winner.More info
Killer ska tune that leaps out of the speakers and flys around the room. Catch it while its available. Busty Brown on the flipside with 'Pick Up The Pieces.More info

Early 70s rarity produced by Alan 'Skilly' Cole the Jamaican soccer player once of Santos FC and mate of the Wailers. Don Hudson was a 12 tribes bredren.
Bunny on a spiritual tip. Sightly twee in places but worth having for the dub mix on the b side which is excellent.More info
Bunny Wailer had several peaks musically and this was one of them. A gorgeous uplifting lyric and all that is good about is music is encased in this record. On a good day he was up there with the very best. The day he put this together was one of them. A vital tune.More info
Actually an excellent rocksteady tune from Hopeton Lewis despite the potential for something less classy. Very good indeed. The b side has Lynn Taitt and his Jets providing an excellent platform for Lester Sterling to get busy on. Top stuff all around.More info
'Checkpoint Charlie' finds Lester Sterling, Lynn Tait and the Gang in laid back Rocksteady mode. Stabbing horns lead the way and halfway through the record the groove takes off to somewhere really quite exceptional. The solo is a peach.
The B side is nice if you like that sought of thing.
Don Drummond at his urgent complex genius like best. A record that's bursting at the grooves with Life. Gorgeous - you need it. Put this on loud lay on the floor and watch the room spin.More info
Superb early version of The Marley Classic. Although this version is radically different from the later version released on Island. A dub infused version that is altogether more stripped down and bare. All the better for that!! Marley and Perry at their most creative. Comes in a recycled sleeve.More info
Rough rambunctious and full of charm this rough diamond of a tune is totally in keeping with the best of the Black Ark musical output. Part 1 on the A side and a continuation of the same on the B side.More info
Mr Music has appeared over the years under a variety of titles. 'Rainbow Country' and also as 'Highway Riding' This Pressure Sounds release is an exclusive dub plate version that has not been releases before. Like Natural Mystic it first appeared on a Daddy Kool 12''. But the version we have is more stripped down and Sound System friendly. A bit slower and a bit deeper. Altogether more raw musically and Marley's vocals are clear and concise. Its clear he loved working with Perry. Comes in a sleeve that is made from a previous Pressure Sounds release.More info
Foot stomping party music from The Soul Brothers. Laxton Ford on the flip side with a more laid back song 'Finders Keepers'.More info

Super rare alternative cut of Righteous Man. Excellent version on the flipside.More info
