Review: Since launching late last year, Harlem Shuffle Records has reissued a string of killer reggae recordings from the 1960s and 70's. Here the imprint offers up its first compilation, a 14-track selection of early reggae, dub and rocksteady hand-picked from the vaults of such legendary labels as Black Swan, Blue Cat, Duke, Doctor Bird, High Note and Trojan. It's a fine and hugely entertaining collection all told, with highlights including the easy, laidback skank of Stranger & Patsy's 'Tell it to Me', the trumpet-laden instrumental shuffle of 'Walk With Des' by Des All Stars, the Hammond-powered dancefloor heaviness of Clancy Collins' 'Brother Moses' and the prototype dub brilliance of 'Black Out' by the Hardy Boys.

  1. Al Campbell & Trinity - "Respect" (5:50)

  3. Trinity - "Vampire" (version) (4:01)
Review: Al Campbell and Trinity's "Respect" is now available on 12" for the first time thanks Greensleeves. Campbell provides the vocal work, which is aloof and detached on "respect", with dreamy trumpets somewhere off in the distance as the rhythm section rolls on with real warmth. Trinity's production is fully on point throughout. The flip is more direct, with heavier beats and more reverb underlining the crisp Al Campbell, and it also features an exclusive dub mix of the same tune that is scorching hot and carries serious weight.

Review: Hailing from Washington D.C, The Archives are a contemporary reggae band with a social conscience and a love of the ground-breaking proto-rap soul of the late, great Gil Scot-Heron and his musical collaborator Brian Jackson. It makes sense then, that their debut album focuses on Scot-Heron and Jackson's work, brilliantly re-inventing such classics as 'Home is Where The Hatred Is', 'The Revolution Will Not Be Televised', 'It's Your World' and 'Revolution Disguised as Change' as soulful, 1970s style reggae songs. It's a simple idea, but one that works wonderfully well, with the band's core line-up being joined by a revolving cast of guest musicians whose contributions often offer nods towards Scot-Heron and Jackson's jazz roots. One of the most surprising and inspired covers albums we've heard in some time.

Review: This one comes on like a lovely breezy on a warm and balmy evening. It's a real gem from LA reggae veterans The Lions feat. Alex Desert & Black Shakespeare and is perfectly timed for summer. It comes with iconic piano chimes that are instantly recognisable from the Derrick Harriott 1967 rock steady classic, as well as warming rays of sun and period-perfect chat from Shakespeare. On the flip side, Ruben Durazo's instrumental is more playful and led by those gorgeous keys. Both tunes are perfectly heavy.

Bring Back The Good Old Days
Cat: CGI 7017. Rel: 28 May 20
  1. Bring Back The Good Old Days (4:02)
  2. Bring Back The Good Old Days (version) (4:14)
Review: Freddy McKay's "Bring Back The Good Old Days" is one of roots reggae's rarer singles. It was recorded and pressed up on a white label "45" sometime in the 1970s, though quite how many copies exist remains a mystery - hence any copy that does come up for sale online tends to go for serious money. Helpfully Typhoon has decided to finally give it a release. Produced by McKay's regular collaborator Alvin Ranglin (AKA soundsystem operator GG), the track sees the singer soulfully but wearily plea for the good times of old over a deep but jaunty roots-reggae riddim. Ranglin's flipside dub mix is superb, too, and sounds every bit as good as anything produced by contemporaries such as Lee 'Scratch' Perry and King Tubby.

  3. Chazbo - "Zion Is Home" (3:40)
  4. Indica Dubs & Conscious Sounds - "Dub In Zion" (3:38)
Review: There's much to set the pulse racing on Indica Sounds' latest ten-inch, not least a first label appearance for rising star Eva Keyes, whose previous releases on Partial Records were all nigh on essential. 'A Place Called Home' is another brilliant soul-fired digital reggae excursion from the singer, with her trademark vocal lilt sounding more haunting than ever. Indica Dubs and Conscious Sounds make the most of selected vocal snippets on their accompanying dub mix, which naturally boasts tougher production and even weighty bass. Melodica maestro Chazbo gets to chance to do his thing over the same riddim on the flip ('Zion Is Home'), before Indica Dubs and Conscious Sounds successfully turn his take into a heavy steppers style workout ('Dub in Zion').

Review: A few years ago, West African music obsessive and Philophon label boss Max Weissenfeldt decided to make some roots reggae with his friend and fellow drummer Josie Coppola. Yet this would be no regular reggae, as they'd be working on songs by Ghanaian artist Y-Bayani (real name Yusef Hussain). Since then, the project has developed further with the addition of a second lead singer, Baby Naa (Naomi Addy), a clutch of talented musicians and a Ghanaian choir. The result is this debut album, a wonderfully hazy, sun-kissed shuffle that does a brilliant job in putting a new, Afro-centric spin on Jamaican roots reggae. The riddims are strong, the multi-lingual vocals superb, the musicianship spot on and the production authentically warm and weighty. In other words, it's an unlikely gem.

Review: This big one from Johnny Osbourne has never, ever, officially been on 7" before now. It comes from a time when roots was at its peak, but dancehall was on the horizon and starting to make an impact. The longing vocals are matched by drawn out slide guitar, distant reggae riffs and a bendy bassline that takes you on a real journey. Roots Radics appear on the flipside with their own take on things with "Dangerous Match Four" before proceeding to serve up an even more horizontal take on the original.

Review: Keith & Tex are best known for their "Stop That Train" fame, but now come good with a hot new tune filled with OG roots goodness. The excellent Soul Of Africa act as backing and to make this a lushly orchestrated tune with lazy lead trumpets and a bubbly bassline. Vocals muse on class, the divide between rich and poor and plenty more socially and politically sensitive subjects that have resonated for many years. On the flip, it's a trip into spaced out dub and liquid synth puddles with so much echo you will end up not knowing which way is left and which is right.

It's a well-known classic every self-respecting reggae fan should know and blows up any party, especially when tweaked like these two versions. They were originally produced by Studio One bossman Coxsone Dodd and have been covered by The Clash as well as sampled by The Fugees and hip hop MC KRS One. The snaking lead synth, the rumbling drums and classic ska trumpet are all straight up irresistible.

Review: Rising Sun from 1986 was something of the start of a new chapter for Augustus Pablo. It was the point at which his Rockers Revolution was eased into he new digital age fo the times. He said himself that the music on the album "mixed up the vibes a little" and touched on a wider array of sounds than usual. There are high quality hot steppers like "Pipers of Zion" next to deep cut and heavy rolling gems like "The Day Before The Riot" while revivalist reggae sounds come to the fore on "African Frontline." Of course, ti was originally recorded at Channel One some comes with plenty of the sonic hallmarks of that legendary studio.

Review: Blowing With The Wind is the second August Pablo album to get the reissue treatment this month following on from 1986's Rising Sun. This one came in 1990 when the legendary dubber had fully updated his original sound with more modern aesthetics and digital techniques. It picked up rave reviews and proved to be one of the artists' most successful records since the seventies. It is defined by a mix of nyahbinghi drumming and hardcore steppers that was fully embraced by the sound system culture of the tie and took Pablo to new heights in the Far East, culminating with a tour of Japan.

Review: Top Ranking Sound is stepping up with a repress of a tune that gets lots of people talking online. How old really is it, is it really worth more than the L1000 people ask for it? You can decide for yourself now - it sure does have a slightly early 80s production style, with the clavichord, keyboard and timbale all hinting at that. It's fresh and crisp, with a natty riddim and some heartfelt vocals up top carrying it away on a breeze. The version is gold, too, with the stuttering kicks and meandering leads all sounding perfectly escapist.

  1. Johnny Osbourne - "Ice Cream Love" (3:24)
  2. Roots Radics - "Extra Time One" (2:45)
Review: Produced by Henry 'Junjo' Lawes and mixed by Scientist, 'Ice Cream Love' first slipped out it in its native Jamaica way back in 1980. The typically languid, weighty and dub flecked cut is built around a tweaked, replayed version of Coxsone Dodd's legendary 'He Prayed' riddim (a groove that has been used on countless reggae records before and since). Osbourne's lead vocal is typically relaxed and quietly soulful, while the involvement of Scientist on mixing desk duties guarantees more bass-weight and subtle dub inflections than your average roots number. Turn to the flip for a more spaced-out instrumental dub version based around the same riddim recording, with more effects-laden magic from Scientist.

Review: Talented singer Keithus Dimits Selassie I has a deep emotion to the tone and message of his music. It is perfect for more spiritual dub sounds and that's the case here. His interpretation here rides nicely on the lazy rhythm below, with acoustic riffs dancing in mid air above puddles of echo. On the flip, Roberto Sanchez stepped up at Lone Ark studios to craft his own slow motion version that is a perfect partner for the a-side. This is a serious piece of 7" wax that packs a punch on many levels.

Review: With their Tweeter Box series of limited-edition EPs, Purple Audio is doing a great job in gathering together obscure vocal reggae and dub cuts from the late 1970s and '80s. There's naturally much to set the pulse racing on this third volume. Up first is the seven-minute 'Disco Mix' of 'Mount Zion' by Roots Wanda (otherwise known as Roots Wonder), a little-known slab of near perfect roots reggae brilliance that was first released on Canadian imprint Big Head way back in 1978. You'll find the other track from that sought-after 12", the deeper and slightly more dub-wise, 'Solomone', over on side B. As you'd expect, the vibrant picture disc also includes alternative dub and vocal versions based on the same superb riddims.

The original is a spaced out riddim with plenty of smart studio trickery fleshing out the heady atmospheres. The lazy drums and horns are slowly but surely absorbing and the vocals full of love. The flipside is even more sparse, allowing ear head room and inviting you right into the mix. Tasty stuff all round, and definitely one to add to the collection before it disappears again.

Jah Give I Love
Cat: TUF 180. Rel: 26 May 20
  1. Jah Give I Love (9:26)
  2. Jerusalem (7:19)
Review: Originally recorded in 1981 but first issued on 12" in 1981, Prince Alla's "Jah Give I Love" remains one of the most potent roots reggae club cuts of the disco era. This Tuff Scout reissue wisely offers up the full extended mix rather than the radio edit, and that's a wise move: while Alla's vocals and the sweet song itself are superb, it's the dancefloor dub style production and weighty groove showcased in the second half of the ten-minute track that really pushes it towards "classic" status. Over on the flip you'll find the similarly lengthy "Jerusalem"; this, too, progresses from a quietly soulful roots reggae number into a dubbed-out dancefloor heater over the course of eight essential minutes.

Giving Thanks & Praises

  1. Giving Thanks & Praises (4:34)
  2. Thanks & Praises Dub (4:23)
Review: The great Reggae deejay and singer, Sandeeno was born in Birmingham, UK but raised in the Jamaican parish of Manchester. Here he steps up for "Giving Thanks & Praises" along with the equally revered Roberto Sanchez on the riddim and dub. This is a big tune with metallic chords hanging in the air over a bubbly, tropical beat that is filled with warmth and soul. The tooting horns bring that chest beating vibe and ensure your audience will be up on their toes. The dub strips things back to focus on the essential drums.

Too Much War

  2. Too Much War (version) (3:27)
Review: Will there ever be a time when the refrain of "Too Much War" won't be true? We can but hope. In the meantime, we can enjoy this impassioned anthem from 1978, recorded by George Hunter and Melvin Trusty as The Ovations. It's a meaningful cry to stop the war with a serious message but an easy to love rhythm and smooth groove that stays with you long after it has stopped playing. The version is tweaked with more noodling bass and spaced out effects for extra heady appeal. Of all this outfit's numerous singles, this one is the most perfect and prescient.

Review: Nine years after first working together on The Dynamic Set's 'When Will They Learn' single, Liam Bailey and Big Crown boss Leon Michaels have finally recorded an album together. While that song was a retro reggae-soul treat, Ekundayo builds on the Nottingham singer-songwriter's penchant for recording lo-fi soul, in which his evocative and effortlessly soulful vocals rise above fuzzy, often homemade backing tracks that variously mix and match elements of roots reggae, digi-dub, dancehall, classic '70s soul and folk (see the 'Redemption Song'-esque 'Vixit'). The result is a vibrant, colourful and highly entertaining set that could well push Bailey's career to even higher heights.

Review: Long running dub dons Nice Up! unveil a brand new talent on their latest: that man is Escape Roots, a Glaswegian producer and Mungo's HiFi's Walk n Skank resident who calls upon vocalist Dandelion to muse on the many different joys of ganga. Riding on classic dancehall rhythms with hooky guitar riffs and tumbling claps, Dandelion touches on toothpaste, butter, soap and the titular Ganga Socks. It's tongue in cheek, head in the clouds stuff that will have you skanking for days. For those who like it more stripped back, flipside "Version" is where it's at.

Review: In 1979, dub legend Lee 'Scratch' Perry "adopted" a pair of musicians from Zaire who had been left stranded on Jamaica, put them together with his regular session players in the Black Ark studio he later burned down in a fit of psychosis, and recorded an album, "Roots From The Congo". As this fine reissue proves, the resultant music - a vibrant mix of Perry's particular brand of dub reggae and soukous music - was magical and unlike almost anything that had come before. For some reason it was only ever released on small labels in France and Belgium at the time, meaning that original copies are extremely hard to find. This reissue, then, is long overdue. Do yourself a favour and snap them up before they all disappear.

Review: Kiss, Cuddle & Torture: Volume 2 is the second album offering from The Hempoloics on their own Zee Zee. It's another of their unique collisions of reggae, hip hop, pop, dancehall and funk and comes with plenty of upbeat riddims that will no doubt get as much radio play as previous singles. Showing real development as well as lush chords, masterfully overdubbed keys and complex arrangements that were apparently written by the whole band together, it's another successful record. Check the contemporary flow and funky riffs of "Bongadashi" or more horizontal dub flexes of "In The Night" for highlights.

Review: Jamaican label Mister Tipsy have dug out two previously unreleased gems from Culture, the roots reggae group founded in 1976. They were recorded in the mid eighties with JA producer Blackbeard and roll nice and deep. "Wah Fi We" has pixelated chords that take you straight back to the era over meandering bass and drums. Acoustic guitar riffs and ticking hi hats all flesh out the groove, while the flip side is a rough version that sounds even more lived in and frayed and authentic.

Review: I Love Sound prove it again with this four track 12" of goodness. Junior Roy's "Please Tell Me" offers a digital dub down low, with fresh, bright chords over the top and some complex vocal work that is diynamic and direct yet stuffed with realness. The version from King Kong - "Time Is Changing" - is laden with more effects but still brings plenty of crisp contemporary vibes. Claire Angel then takes the same production but serve sup her own vocal, with crystal clear soul and impassioned delivery making it an even more modern sounding gem, then a subtly tweaked mellow vibes mix focusses purely on the dub.
