    Jamaican Soul Double Header!!

    Minni Skirt was initially published in 1967 on the Jamaican Comet label and on the American BRA label and has never been released on vinyl in Europe, until now. Brilliantly produced, this mythic party dancer combines heavy frantic Rhythm and Soul, flamboyant horns, wild screaming vocals with some of the most concise lyrics ever written: Today, this ultrarare track is heavily sought after by many collectors, from early “Reggay” fans, Rude Boys, Skin-heads to Mods, Soulies and 60s collectors.

    What You’ve Got was released in 1967 on the WIRL label in Jamaica and on the Doctor Bird label in the U.K as the B side for Feel Good Now, another great track by Lloyd and Glen. It has never been repressed on 7” vinyl since. Complete with a prominent beat and superb horns, the much in demand What You’ve Got is the perfect choice for completing this Jamaican Soul crossover single. Equally rare, a mint copy would be over 300 quid if one can find any!

    Rudy MillsJohn Jones / BombshellHarlem Shuffle

    "Produced and apparently co-written by Derrick Harriott, 'John Jones' was released in 1968 on the Big shot label. With its unstoppable rhythm and its aggressive lyrics 'John Jones' was a major hit among the Skinhead subculture in the UK, its release on the popular Tighten Up series certainly helped the song becoming a cult track then and now. The Crystalites were Harriott's studio band and included very famous 60s Jamaican musicians e.g. Bongo Herman, Bongo Les, Boris Gardiner, Gladstone Anderson, Karl Bryan, Winston Wright among others. They were extremely productive between 1968 and 1974 recording four albums and countless singles. More specifically, they recorded many wild and awesome 'versions' of hit songs of that time e.g. 'John Jones', making 'Bombshell' easily the best choice for the B Side as it is indeed a special instrumental and an awesome cover." Hard too find a clean copy on 7" single, now's your limited chance..A Stone Cold Classic!!

    Alton EllisPumping InHarlem Shuffle

    Never released before on 7”

    This cracking up-tempo track from 1970 has a heavy guitar work, a killer organ and some real gutsy vocals to boot.The sound and rhythm are quite different from Ellis previous songs and, sign of time, have a distinctive Boss Reggae feel and it really rocks! “Pumping In” is an absolute gem that has been badly overlooked up to now. 1972 "Knock on wood", the Eddie Floyd mega hit, has been covered several times by Alton previously, in a brilliant but rather conservative way. This version though was produced by Joe Gibbs and is totally different. It featured on 2 compilations LPs in 1969 and 1973 but was never issued on a 7" vinyl previously. In the same vein as "Pumping In" but slower, this killer track is a rough, tough reggae cover of the Soul anthem featuring unbelievable vocals from Alton, and a distinctly Boss Sound production from Joe Gibbs. A Must Have..

      Flying VipersThe Gorgon Strikes BackHappy People

      The new Happy People Records ltd. edition 7" series comes from... the Flying Vipers from Boston, Mass with two brand new, world-beating heavyweight dubs! You can't argue with Flea Market Funk when they cited Flying Vipers 2020 debut album - 'Cuttings' as "one of the top reggae records of the year". Recorded and mixed entirely on an antiquated 4-track cassette recorder, it possesses the same rawness, authenticity and grit that dub first used to seduce the world in the 1970's. Two cuts from said album have now been given extra heavy treatment by Dub Fader (10 Ft. Ganja Plant); one a soaring tribute to Bunny Lee, 'The Gorgon Strikes Back', and the flip-side, the ethio-jazz nodding 'Fermented Herbs'. All numbered limited edition of 232 and pressed on HEAVYWEIGHT vinyl.

      CultureThe Nighthawk RecordingsOmnivore Recordings

      7 Track EP from Reggae Legend Culture. Includes 4 Previously Unissued Tracks. Liner Notes From Nighthawk Founder / Producer Leroy Jodie Pierson. Culture began recording in 1976 with an early cut of This Time which was only released on an obscure Jamaican single. Composed in response to the state of emergency declared by the Jamaican government in that year, the early recording is a tame and lyrically altered version of the original song as finally presented on this album. “We couldn’t do it in dem time, We gonna give you the real ‘This Time’.” During the late 1970s Culture recorded seven fine albums, three for Joe Gibbs, three for Sonia Pottinger, and one issued in America by April Records, which Joseph Hill regarded as a bootleg. Culture was truly in their prime when they recorded the material included on this album. The first three tracks were recorded in 1981 with backing by the Roots Radics. The remaining tracks were taped in 1983 with backup by The Wailers band. Calling Rastafari, Dem A Payaka, and This Time were all originally included on the 1982 Nighthawk compilation album, Calling Rastafari.Most of the tracks released on the classic, roots reggae compilation, were recorded during a three-day session in 1981 at the Harry J studio in Jamaica. The Culture songs appeared alongside tracks by Gladiators, Mighty Diamonds, Wailing Souls and others, with most of the songs being unique to the album including those by Culture. Can They Run and Mister Musicand their respective Versions were recorded two years after Calling Rastafari was issued and languished in the Nighthawk vaults until the release of this special, limited-edition EP.

      Orchestre Poly-Rythmo de Cotonou DahomeyGbeti Ma Djro / Angelina IIAcid Jazz Records / Albarika Store

      More dancefloor dynamite from Benin's almighty Orchestre Poly-Rythmo de Cotonou Dahomey, this time in the form of 'Gbeti Ma Djro'. Confusingly described on the centre label of the 1971 original issue as ’Soul’, this is in fact a prime slice of Afro-psych-funk complete with wails and grunts over fierce drums and picked guitar. 'Angelina II’ is a much warmer affair that rides a shuffling mid-tempo pachanga groove.
