    • Dukey McCalla – I've Got The Power
    • 1. I've Got The Power
    • 2. I've Got The Power Version

    Produced by Pat Kelly and originally released as an extremely limited pressing in 1970, Dukey McCella’s “I’ve Got the Power,” has become a cult favorite, shrouded in mystery and rumour, among serious record collectors and reggae selectors. The tune’s plaintive harmonies and the early, roots-inflected militancy of the lyrics led many well-informed fans to suspect that the tune was, in fact, The Wailers operating under an alias. However, it is not the Wailers, but Pat Kelly(singing as Dukey McCella) along with Wesley Tinglin on the soaring harmonies. Pat Kelly even gives a little DJ vibes in talking the spoken intro on the flipside. This release is first time that “I’ve Got the Power” has been reissued, lifting the veil to one of the toughest and unique tunes of Pat Kelly’s career. Comes in a hand stamped bag.

      When Jah Shall ComePressure Sounds

      Bunny Lee recorded a massive volume of remarkably consistent music in the 70s. This compilation brings together rare and unreleased cuts that put the listener bang in the middle of a typical recording session, complete with false starts and studio banter.

      Linval Thompson is represented by two unreleased tunes, and is also heard in the runup to 'Tommy's Vibration'. Once the 'flying cymbal' sound had taken off, Bunny often recorded a 'flyers' and a straight version of the same rhythm: 'Tommy's Vibration' is a classic but little known Tommy McCook instrumental on the flyers cut of Linval's 'Jah Jah A The Conqueror'. 'Ethiopian Rock' is a total scorcher, the only recorded tune by the deejay Jah Smile, before Bunny persuaded him to turn to singing and changed his name to Barry Brown.

      In a healthy spirit of competition, Bunny often tried out different singers on tunes that he thought would hit, hence Ronnie Davis's soulful take on Johnny Clarke's 'Every Knee Shall Bow', Johnny's version of Horace Andy's 'Better Collie', and Johnny and Horace sharing vocals on 'No Man Is An Island', all unreleased until now. 'No Babylon Shall Escape In This Time' has Johnny Clarke and 'Bongo' Herman Davis recorded over the original version side of Johnny's 'None Shall Escape The Judgement'. 'Life Of My Own' is a beautifully constructed lament by a singer who neither Bunny nor various expert ears have managed to identify: at Bunny's suggestion he is credited as 'The Raver'. 'War Zone' and 'Keep On Running' are examples of Tubby's mixes that have had further effects dubbed on elsewhere; sound systems and foreign record labels occasionally did this to manufacture their own specials from existing mixes. 'Jamaican Fruit Of African Roots' has recently been the subject of the fascinating documentary 'Shella Record: A Reggae Mystery'; the Lennox Brown cut here has only just been discovered. Also included are two stinging dubplates by Cornell Campbell: the first is aimed straight to the head of Arrows sound system, while the second, recorded in the early 80s, sums up the vital partnership of two of Jamaica's musical giants:

      Yabby You Meets King TubbyWalls Of JerusalemPressure Sounds

      ‘Walls of Jerusalem’ is a unique musical collaboration between the producer Yabby You and the legendary dub master King Tubby. The two were close friends, frequent collaborators and deep admirers of each other’s artistry. ‘Walls of Jerusalem’ was the last full-length project they worked on together. For years this release lay buried in obscurity: original copies came out, in minute quantities, on the Prophets Label in a blank, white sleeve. A later issued even misnamed the artist. Yet the music within is deep roots of the highest quality – mesmerizing tracks that illustrate Yabby You’s particular sound and spiritual vision. Disc One presents the album in its original form, showcasing King Tubby’s virtuosity as an engineer, deliberately shaping a sophisticated stereo mix to aid in the creation of a bold, artistic statement. Disc Two includes a number of never-released studio outtakes, alternate mixes and instrumental cuts of some of Yabby You’s most classic tunes. These mixes put the listener right there in the studio, complete with “chatter” between the musicians, Tubby and Yabby discovered on the master tapes, and included between the tracks of this reissue. Together, the two discs of Walls Of Jerusalem are dub and roots music of the finest order and and a major celebration of the creative genius of Yabby You and King Tubby. This Double LP is lovingly packaged with extensive sleeve notes by Diggory Kenrick. * previously unreleased + CD has two bonus tracks.

      Bree DanielsOh Me Oh MyPressure Sounds

      Lee Perry’s playful nature credited this 45 to Jane Fonda’s character in Klute!! About as Post Modern as you can get. The music is a storming up tempo joy ride. ‘I may forget your name but not your face’ possibly relates to the story of ‘Klute’ which obviously caught ‘Scratch’s’ attention.

      The ProphetsKing Tubby's Prophecies Of DubPressure Sounds

      Since it first appeared in 1976, King Tubby's dub-wise reworking of tracks by Yabby You's Prophets project has become a sought after item amongst reggae aficionados. Remarkably, it has never been reissued before, making this first vinyl edition in 23 years a must-have for those addicted to weighty bass, heavy riddims and echoing effects. There's much to enjoy from start to finish, including the delay-laden horns and gentle grooves of "Fair Lady", the surprisingly cheery skank of "Tear Gas In Waterhouse", the seductive solos of "Tradition Skank" and the low-slung, bass-heavy throb of "Serious Rebellion", a stripped back dub straight from the top drawer.

      Frankie JonesGun FeverPressure Sounds

      Frankie Jones’ “Gun Fever” is a dark and heavy piece of digital roots; a rare representation of 80s Jamaican music that appealed equally to the UK roots and dancehall crowds. Originally released in 1986 on a Third World 12”, the record was limited in distribution and became a heavily sought after tune by serious collectors and selectors alike. This Pressure Sounds release on a crisp, newly mastered 45 is the first time “Gun Fever” has been reissued; and the first time it has appeared on 7” vinyl. Comes in a hand stamped bag.

      • – Gun Fever
      • – Gun Fever (Version)
      Vivian Jackson & The ProphetsJudgement TimePressure Sounds

      Essential up-tempo roots classic from Yabby You aka Vivian Jackson and the Prophets. “Judgment Time” layers heavy bass and horn arrangements against driving, “militant” style drums to create the perfect backdrop for deep, conscious lyrics and The Prophets’ gorgeous harmonies. The B-side is a heavyweight dub that finds King Tubby expertly using his vaunted talents to create a “Judgment Time” version as powerful as the original vocal side.

      • Vivian Jackson & The Prophets – Judgement Time
      • – Prophets Dub
      Diggory Kenrick & The ProphetsVengeancePressure Sounds

      For years, Diggory Kenrick has been re-energizing classic roots and rocksteady through his musical collaborations with original source material taken from master tape. For “Vengeance,” Kenrick crafts a welcome, new addition to the Yabby You catalog with a sax-led, scorching take of “Jah Vengeance.” On the B-Side Kenrick takes to the mixing board for a vital dub mix of the A-side.

      • Diggory Kenrick & The Prophets – Vengeance
      • – Kenrick's Version
      Bunny Lee PresentsDubbing In The Front Yard + Conflict DubPressure Sounds

      Bunny Lee as producer. Prince Jammy as engineer. The Aggrovators making the tracks. It is the Holy Trinity of Jamaican Music. Throughout the years, recorded music has been shaped by some enduring partnerships between producer and engineer, such as Teo Macero and Fred Plautt for Miles Davis, Jerry Wexler and Tom Dowd for Atlantic Records, and George Martin and Geoff Emerick for the Beatles. But possibly none were as prolific as the collaboration between Bunny ‘Striker’ Lee and Prince Jammy at King Tubby’s Studio between 1976 and 1982.

      In 1977 and 1982 respectively, Conflict Dub and Dubbing In The Front Yard were released in London as white labels in extremely limited quantities. The two LPs found the triumvirate of Lee, Jammy and The Aggrovators in perfect form with driving instrumentals, flashes of vocal beauty and mixes that ripped apart and rebuilt traditional notions of sonic structure. Due to the nature of their limited release (not to mention the lack of artwork and even titles) the two dub LPs quickly disappeared into that mythic realm of records whispered about by only the most hard-core reggae collectors. This release is the first-ever reissue of these sought after LPs, and contains all the original songs in both vinyl form (double LP set with both albums on the original labels) and a lush double pack cd with 3 extra bonus tracks. The sleeve notes are by Diggory Kenrick with amazing photos by Howard Johnson, director of the influential Channel 4 documentary ‘Deep Roots Music’.

      The 3 CD bonus tracks are all remixes. Two from Paolo ‘Dubfiles’ Baldini for the Dubbing in the Front Yard set. One for Conflict Dub by Diggory Kenrick.

            Owen GrayHear We Them A SayPressure Sounds

            A prodigy of the Alpha boys school Owen Gray deliver a heartfelt roots vocal on a rhythm most likely supplied by Sly Dunbar and Lloyd Parks. This is a top tune and Phil Pratts production is sympathetic to Owen Grays voice. The rhythm was remixed at London’s Easy street studio and used on the ‘War is on dub style’ set. There is a distinct Roots Radics feel to the rhythm and the veteran Owen Gray handles it perfectly. A rootsy that is well worthy of being re-issued. ‘Why did you kill your brother for a dollar’ as appropriate now as it was when it was released. Bobby Kalphat .makes an appearance on melodica in the second half of the track.

              Ronnie DavisStrange Things / Black CinderellaPressure Sounds

              Two crisp and crunchy Phill Pratt productions. The A side has an extended version of the song Strange things. Ronnie Davis takes the lead vocal on this version of the song that was written by Horace Andy and made famous by John Holt. ‘Black Cinderella’ on the Flip side was cut by Errol Dunkley for Jimmy Radway and Ronnie Davis’s version is an updated cut that was recorded in Jamaica with Sly and Robbie as the rhythm section. These songs were remixed in the Uk as dubs for ‘The war is on dub style’ set. Both sides of the ten inch are extended versions.

                Very rare Phil Pratt produced dub album "The War Is On Dub Style" gets reissued for the first time with original tunes on the vinyl and with 3 extra vocal and one dub track on the CD.

                  Al BrownAin't No LovePressure Sounds

                  A real classic of its kind. Al Browns cover of Bobby Blands inspired Blues/soul refections on urban living had been a staple of his set at Kingstons popular ‘Tit for Tat’ nightclub. Brown had cut his first tunes for Studio One as Irving Brown before fronting the Skin Flesh and Bones band and had made a feature of covering R/B pop tunes in a reggae style. His biggest hit was his cover of Al Greens ‘Here I am’. 'Ain't No Love' has not been available on 45 since its first pressing on Tommy Cowans Arab label although it was produced by Al Brown. Comes in a hand stamped bag

                  • Al Brown – Ain't No Love
                  • Skin Flesh & Bones – Dubs In The City
                  Althea And DonnaGone To NegrilPressure Sounds

                  Producer Tommy Cowans cut the first version of the ‘Gone to Negril’ rhythm for Devon Irons to voice the song ‘Jersualem’ on. He then returned to the same rhythm for the follow to the pop hit ‘Up Town Top Ranking’ with Althea and Donna for ‘Gone to Negril’. 

                  Some where along the line prompted by Bob Marley Tommy Cowans took the tapes up to the Black Ark . Anyone who was coming from another planet who wanted to know what Lee Perry was about would be well advised to listen to the all out audio assault of ‘Crazy Negril’. 

                  Like a careering car that Perry just about maintains control off ‘Crazy Negril’ screeches whirls and zooms from one side to the other of the musical track. Possibly because it was a ‘mix’ that he was asked to do for someone else from the outside Perry throws caution to the wind and adds a simple rhythm box as well as whistles and a cow bell to amazing effect. It's a an inspired version and adds to the slightly commercial song on the A side. Although ‘Gone to Negril’ has its lyrical moments as well. Anyone who rhymes ‘Adam and Eve without their leaves’ and ‘Femine gender ranking agenda’ is alright by me.

                  Pat KellyStriving For The RightPressure Sounds

                  The aspirational “Striving For the Right” with its tender b-side “When a Boy Falls in Love,” was initially released in 1970. This release represents the first time that these 2 tracks have been reissued with the original label design. “Striving For the Right” finds Pat Kelly in perfect form, his voice maintaining perfect clarity while blossoming with emotional intensity over a chugging organ led instrumental. “When a Boy Falls in Love” is a keening near-ballad that has all the hallmarks of classic R&B records of the time. Both tracks showcase the rich and complex vocals that led the Beatles management to express interest in signing Pat Kelly to Apple Records. Comes in a brown hand stamped bag.

                  Sis JendayiFeel ItReggae Archive

                  500 copies only of this long lost tune from Bristol's reggae heritage. Recorded in 1982. Produced and mixed by Rob Smith and previously unreleased. The recordings originate from a session one afternoon in late 1982 when three members of Bristol's Arts Opportunity Theatre set about recording a track they'd written. With just 3 people and limited equipment, they made a strength of their limitations and in doing so came up with something unique for the time. In many ways Feel It pre-empts the small studio, no budget DIY approach that from the late eighties which would see a UK led roots reggae revival spread as an antidote to the direction Jamaican dancehall reggae was then travelling, further and further away from the seventies roots sound. Whilst the low budget home studio approach looks to the future and the early drum machine beats place it firmly in 1982 the lyrics are classic roots reggae: Referencing slavery and making clear those responsible are the ones who will feel it with punishment in the afterlife. The real icing on the cake is that this is that rarest of offerings a female roots vocal ably handled by future Restriction vocalist Sis Jendayi. In addition to the vocal there are three dub mixes perhaps the earliest available examples of Rob Smith productions.

                  Studio One DancehallSoul Jazz Records

                  Fantastic, mind-blowing, awesome new collection of killer Studio One dancehall and proto-dancehall!


                  Featured here is a new collection spanning Studio One’s dancehall period – singers and deejays on classic Studio One rhythms, studio and electronic wizadry from the Brentford Road headquarters, lots of rare 12” singles, all effortlessly brought together to nice up the dance.


                  When Clement ‘Sir Coxsone’ Dodd first ruled the dancehalls of Kingston in the 1950s, fighting off the soundsystem competition of Duke Reid, King Edwards and others, few could imagine how far the reign of Studio One would last. 

                  But the emergence of  ‘Dancehall’ as a distinct style of reggae at the end of the 1970s, as upstart competing producers began recording vocalists and deejays performing over replayed classic Studio One rhythms, in many ways made the influence of Clement Dodd’s vision more omnipotent than ever before (and lasting to this day).


                  Not surprisingly, Clement Dodd’s creativity and business acumen made him quick to respond to this musical phenomenon – and he soon began voicing the new stable of Studio One singers and deejays, such as Sugar Minott and Lone Ranger, over original classic Studio One rhythms recorded in the late 1960s – to produce some of the most innovative, time-bending and creative music of his career.


                  This album comes as CD with slipcase, super-loud, super-heavy triple vinyl album with free download code and as a digital download.

                  Rubadub RevolutionEarly Dancehall Productions From Bunny LeePressure Sounds

                  “Rub A Dub Revolution: Early Dancehall Productions From Bunny ‘Striker’ Lee” their first foray into Mr. Lee’s transformative rub a dub work from the late 70s to mid-eighties.

                  In the late 1970s, Kingston was in the midst of a transformation. The ghetto population, brutalized, cowering behind locked gates during the internecine warfare of the decade, had had enough. Gunshots, street battles, homemade bombs be damned, the population was sick of the politics, sick of the violence and ready to move on. Slowly, but surely, the dancehalls, all but shuttered during the 1970s were returning to life. In those open lawns and sweaty clubs where draws of weed were sold by the handful, a cold Heineken battled the heat and the girls were ready to rock their hips in a rub a dub style the quasi-mystical, mathematically complex sound of roots and dub ceded to more earth-bound concerns. A host of new singers and DJs flocked to the sound systems with lyrics and style that spoke to the dancehall itself. This new breed of “rub a dub soldier” eschewed the international market, and spoke to Jamaicans in their own language, about their own concerns from sex to humor to the day-to-day problems of suffering in the ghetto. A new sound was needed and the spare, uncompromising music of the Roots Radics, bolstered equally by the mixing prowess of Scientist and the financial shenanigans of Henry “Junjo” Lawes, came to the rescue. With a tuff as nails drum and bass soundtrack, the Roots Radics, almost overnight, became the number one band for Jamaican recordings.

                  Bunny “Striker” Lee was always attuned to even the slightest change in the musical landscape of Kingston. He quickly picked up on this shift in taste and knew he had to compete or be left behind. By 1980, Striker had gathered a stable of young artists around his core veterans like Cornell Campbell and Johnny Clarke to build riddims and tunes to speak to this new “dancehall” vibe. With a deep knowledge of classic songwriting, an ability to effectively communicate with musicians and an infusion of new talent, Striker Lee’s new direction quickly hit gold. “Rub a Dub Revolution” mines this often overlooked period with tracks of rarities like the Paragons obscure “Place Called Zion”, classic tunes such as Don Carlos’ iconic “Pass Me The Lazer Beam” and extended 12” mixes featuring DJ verses by Papa Tullo, Purpleman, Simple Simon and others that showcase the excitement, experimentation and raw energy of this transformative period of Jamaican music. Rub a Dub Revolution will be released in a gorgeously designed 2 Lp vinyl set and a double CD with 3 bonus tracks. Both formats include extensive track notes by Diggory Kenrick and an extensive interview with Bunny Lee.

                  ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                  Soul Jazz Records are releasing Count Ossie and The Rasta Family’s long lost reggae album ‘Man From Higher Heights’ (originally released in 1983), digitally remastered and with full original artwork.

                  This release follows on from the earlier release of Count Ossie and The Mystic Revelation of Rastafari ‘Tales of Mozambique’ (1975) also by Soul Jazz Records.

                  Recorded in Kingston, Jamaica, somewhere between the last Mystic Revelation album and the 1983 official release of ‘Man From Higher Heights’ it remains unclear whether this album is a mixture of original recordings overlayed with additional players, or Ossie’s post-Mystic Revelation players remaining true to the spirit of Count Ossie (who had died in a car crash in 1976).

                  Either way it is a fascinating and successful blend of heavyweight Rastafarian roots rhythms and drumming alongside deep jazz improvisation and tripped out psychedelic fuzz guitar.

                  The album was first released in 1983 on the British label VIsta Sounds with no mention of the line-up of the group. It has been out of print for over 30 years and remains one of the most mysterious of all releases relating to Count Ossie and the Mystic Revelation of Rastafari.

                  Count Ossie is the central character in the development of Rastafarian roots music, an almost mythical and iconic figure. His importance in bringing Rastafarian music to a populist audience is matched only by Bob Marley’s promotion of the faith internationally in the 1970s.

                  Count Ossie’s drummers made the first ever song to integrate Rastafarian traditional music into popular music - The Folkes Brothers’ song ‘Oh Carolina’, recorded for producer Prince Buster in 1959. In 1966 his drummers greeted the arrival of Haile Selassie at Kingston airport. His Rastafarian compound in the hills of Wareika, Kingston, hosted jam sessions between his drummers and Jamaica’s finest musicians, Roland Alphonso, Don Drummond, Johnny Moore and others.

                  Count Ossie and the Group’s Man From Higher Heights remains one of the most elusive of his highly progressive Rastafarian inspired recordings, the final release in Count Ossie’s career.
