  4. The Dynamites - "Got To Work" (3:05)
Review: Only Roots come through with a classic wedge from Barry Biggs. These pure vibes first came in 1976 and on this package you're also treated to the Clarence Wears guitar piece from the same year, plus a couple of spicy dubs. "Work All Day" is a golden offering with an aloof and soulful vocal that drifts up top like a wispy cloud on a summer's day. Muted chords enrich things and the natty riffs keep things subtly funky. That original Wears guitar piece is a real heart wrencher - the guitar rings out into the sky with oodles of reverb giving it even more poignancy.

Loving Bride
Cat: OR 116. Rel: 28 Jul 20
Roots/Lovers Rock
  1. Loving Bride (3:28)
  2. Loving Bride (version) (3:29)
Review: The vital Only Roots label turns to Nyah Hunter for a previously unreleased b-side. Now pressed up onto its own 7", complete with a dub, the song appeared for the first time in 1973 on the compilation "Pipeline". It was recorded at Federal Records Studios in the early seventies and was produced by Alvin Ranglin. It exudes all the earthy vibes you'd expect of that period, the rumbling drums, fat bass and aloof vocals. It's as sweet as chocolate and smooth as silk.

Review: Melodica maestro Augustus Pablo released a number of influential albums during a golden period in the 1970s, though little quite as ground-breaking and far-sighted as 1976's "King Tubbys Meets Rockers Uptown". Mixed by King Tubby, it was one of the first great dub albums and is still one of the finest examples of the stripped-back, rhythm-heavy style around. If you don't already own a copy, we'd heartily recommend picking up this reissue. Musically, the tracks sound as warm, weighty and spacious as ever - all heavy Robbie Shakespear/Family Man Barrett bass, idiosyncratic drumming and killer melodica/Clavinet/organ action from Pablo - while the screen-printed artwork is a delight.

  9. East Of The River Nile (2:50)
  10. Sounds From Levi (3:57)
  11. Chapter 2 (4:17)
  12. Addis A Baba (3:42)
Review: Start your year off in perfectly horizontal fashion with this welcome reissue of Augustus Pablo's classic "East Of The River Nile" from 1977. The purely instrumental album spotlights Pablo's famous ability on the melodica, as well as various other retro keyboards that dazzle and shine over the earthy reggae rhythms. The Jamaican called in high profile guests like Bob Marley's backing band The Wailers to help lay down these grooves, and both King Tubby and Lee "Scratch" Perry were involved in the mixing. As such, it's a truly heavyweight offering that should be part of any self-respecting reggae lover's collection.
