Review: Soul Jazz Records' Studio One releases are legendary, and for good reason. This 20th Anniversary edition is of one of the most classic of them all, so it rightfully gets a special one-off blue double vinyl pressing. This one set the standard and is jam packed with classics from the almighty reggae roster of master producer Clement 'Sir Coxsone' Dodd. The likes of Freddie McGregor, Willie Williams, Cornell Campbell, Alton Ellis and Devon Russell all feature and contribute to a fine mix of seminal cuts and more rare gems that touch on surreal afro-centric dreams as well as Rasta anthems.

Review: Akae Beka's debut release on the Zion High Productions label is built on a bedrock of solid rhythms. Aston Barrett Jr. on drums, JAH Bless on horns, Chet Samuel on guitar and Yami Bolo on melodica all bring their own flavours with big, strident horns and a wide range of keyboard voices all colouring the grooves. 'Firmness' gets underway with a sunny disposition, and elsewhere highlights like the stepping 'Discreet' with its jazzy keys and tumbling drums is a real gem. There's emotional depth to 'Have Heard' and lovers overtones to the light, airy vibe of 'Handle Sumptin.'

Review: Pressure Sounds latest essential reissue breathes new life into Yabby You and the Prophets' brilliant 1975 album Conquering Lion, an early roots reggae gem that has long been a favourite of knowledgeable reggae heads. The first record naturally showcases the original EP, offering us a chance to savour such classics as 'Run Come Rally', the intoxicating and pitched-down brilliance of 'Conquering Lion' and the shoulder-swinging skank of 'Jah Love'. The second record, meanwhile, gathers together rare dubs, versions and alternate takes not featured on the original LP. It's almost worth buying the reissue for this alone; 'Tubby's Vengeance', 'Anti Christ Rock' and 'Warning (Dub)', in particular, are spectacularly good.

Cat: ERC 104. Rel: 28 Sep 20
  1. Be Thankful (7:57)
  2. Be Thankful (Lexx Discomix) (7:24)
Review: Emotional Rescue are turning their attention to King & City, a label that dealt in the UK-rooted take on reggae, lovers rock, at the turn of the '80s. First up is this sublime cover of William DeVaughn's evergreen, much-covered soul classic 'Be Thankful For What You Got'. This take is breezy and hopeful, but still shot through with a certain sense of longing in the tight riddim backing up the sweet vocals. On the flip, Emotional draft in one of their favourite remixers, the mighty Lexx, to deliver a disco mix that teases out the original and amps up the dub-outs for maximum groove satisfaction.

Review: Wailing Souls are veteran roots reggae artists - is there any other kind? - who make a welcome return with new album 'Back A Yard' (which is of course patois for 'back in Jamaica'). It is a strong offering of 11 crucial tunes with longstanding members, Winston "Pipe" Matthews and Lloyd "Bread" McDonald, in the studio with producer/ singer Alborosie. All-star guests such as keyboardist Tyrone Downie and bassist Errol "Flabba" Holt also feature to make this a real coming together of greats from over the course of Jamaican reggae history.

  1. Champion (feat Black Thought - remix) (3:31)
  2. Ugly Truth (feat Lee Scratch Perry - remix) (2:36)
Review: Hot on the heels of his rather good album Ekundayo - a brilliant set of reggae, dancehall and folk-infused lo-fi soul songs - Nottingham singer-songwriter Liam Bailey returns with two bona-fide legends in tow. The Roots member Black Thought guests on a bold new version of LP track 'Champion', in which he and Bailey's superb vocals ride a fuzzy, organ-rich riddim that sits somewhere between classic reggae and pitched-down dancehall. The Legendary Lee 'Scratch' Perry lends his distinctive vocals to the fresh flipside version of 'The Ugly Truth', an intergalactic digi-dub-goes-soul affair that's every bit as awesome as the on-point A-side. Tip!

Got To Live

  1. Got To Live (feat Earl 16) (3:21)
  2. Living Version (3:21)
Review: Acid Jazz welcome Manasseh and David Hill for a fresh new production. Earl 16 is the featuring guest on 'Got To Live', and he provides some buttery vocals, musing on changing times and the desire to live in a more peaceful world. The production is led by tumbling toms and congas, with horns rising up in proud fashion next to dumpy drums and fat bottomed bass. Flip it over, and those fantastic horns lead the way on a killer instrumental version, 'Living Version.' They both make this a very tidy 7" indeed.

  3. Dub Conqueror (part 3 - Paolo Baldini dubfiles remix) (4:31)
Review: Martin Harrison worked with legends like This Heat and On u Sound as well as many other vocal dub practitioners. Here he offers up a pair of longer stepping mixes of Yabby You and They Prophets' 'Dub Conqueror.' it is tune that may be familiar to dub techno fans as having been reworked by Steve O'Sullivan into a brilliantly heady groove. On the flip, the same tune gets treated by Paolo Baldini with a 'Dubfiles' remix and he slows things down, before freaking you out with plenty of mad mixing tricks and effects.

  22. Tommy McCook - "Sand In My Shoe Dub" (3:00)
Review: Pressure Sounds' latest release takes us back to 1976 and "Wall Of Jerusalem", a soulful reggae album by The Prophets that included production from both Yabby You (the band's lynchpin and lead vocalist) and dub mixer King Tubby. The album is something of a roots classic, with Yabby You's seductive, soul-fired vocal numbers being joined by delay-laden heavy dub revisions by King Tubby. You'll find the original set on LP 1, with the second being dedicated to alternate versions, previously unreleased tracks recorded in the same period, and alternate dubs that have lain dormant in Yabby You's archives for the best part of 40 years.

Review: The Robbie Ellington rhythm 'Rainbow' is taken from the long player The Herb, which was initially released in 1995. Produced by The Herb and mixed by Scruff, it is a real bit of rootsy reggae rock. The bubbling baselines keep you moving while sci-fi effects constantly take off to the skies. The vocal is airy and filled with a smooth soul, too. On the flip, Real Rock include The Herb's dub version, which is all twisted filters, drawn out pads and meon-melting vibes for smoke session and late night get downs.

  2. King Tubby's - "Freedom Dub" (2:39)
  3. Willi Williams - "Armagideon Time" (6:25)
Review: Dub Vendor has launched a new label, Soul Sounds. The imprint's first release is a new edition of Willi Williams' 1983 single 'Freedom Time', an unheralded roots classic built around Yabby You's iconic 'Chant Down Babylon' rhythm. The A-side sports two killer versions mixed by Scientist at King Tubby's: Williams' original, featuring his weary but quietly uplifting vocals, and a typically echoing, stripped-back and spaced-out dub. Over on the flip there's a chance to savour Williams' self-produced '83 re-make of his earlier Studio One classic 'Armagideon Time' - a warmer and more lo-fi take marked out by another superb lead vocal.

Review: By the time they joined forces with Linval Thompson in 1982, Kingston combo the Viceroys had already recorded with some of Jamaica's top producers, including Clement "Sir Coxsone" Dodd, Lee 'Scratch' Perry, and Sly & Robbie. Given this pedigree, it's great testament to Thompson that he helped them create their single most impressive album, the Trojan Records-released We Must Unite. Featuring an evocative mixture of solo and group harmony vocals, the album delivers a string of superbly soulful dub-influenced roots reggae cuts that genuinely sound better with every successive listen. It might not be a particularly celebrated album, but as this timely reissue proves, it's certainly a very good one.

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: It's been a long time since the world renowned Channel One studio's heyday in Jamaica, and this is the first reggae instrumental album of its kind to come out of the hallowed place since the late 70s. It is a collection of original compositions and several classic adaptations arranged by Clive 'Azul' Hunt, aka Lizzard. He is by now a veteran producer associated with acts like The Abyssnians, Bullwackies, Beres Hammond, Jah9 and more and here he calls upon talents old and new such as Squidley Cole, Kirk Bennett, and Clive Hunt, among others, to help him.

This time round it's Pharell's "Frontin" acappella dropped over a deep dub beat - all the way to Kingston. On the flip side they feature a rocksteady version of a true hip-hop/electro classic! "My Adidas" is a great reworking of the RUN DMC tune, with a dub-like rhythm to it and a really classic sound overall. Stix present these two top-notch party pieces.

Review: Released in 1983 with backing from Undivided Roots, Vivian Jones made a real statement with his debut album. It's a slow, steady, spacious one with heavy rhythms and keys that seem to float. The simmering vocals from the UK artist are also key to elevating each tune and also to the fact that Jones went on to work with mainstays such as Jah Shaka, Bobby Digital, Junior Reid and many others. Vivian started as a DJ in the 70s and was a member of a number of different UK roots bands, but grew disillusioned so went to Jamaica in 1982 and has turned out more than 130 tunes since. This record includes well-know gems 'Flash It And Gwan' and 'Third World Man'.

Institutionalized Racism

  2. Institutionalized Racism (version) (3:19)
Review: Belgium's Roots Vibration label is as reliable as they come for roots lovers and now they wind it back to the nineties for this crucial production by Ossie Thomas. It is one of the less well known tunes from Vivian Jones, but it shouldn't be with its computer-programmed digital drums and horns. They help guide Vivian's tremendously vocals, which muse on institutionalised racism which is just as rife decades later, so this one remains hugely relevant. Add in some heavy drops and you have a gold standard riddim.

Some One Cut It Down
Cat: JFR 722. Rel: 19 Apr 21
  1. Some One Cut It Down (3:59)
  2. Some One Cut It Down (version) (3:57)
Review: 'Some One Cut it Down' is clearly one of Paul Hurlock's favourite compositions, because over the years he's recorded and released a number of versions. This version is, we think, the first he recorded and dates from the turn-of-the-1980s. It was previously only available on a hard-to-find Jamaican "45", so this reissue is more than welcome. In its original form, the song is a lolloping, head-nodding roots reggae treat rich in fizzing Clavinet riffs, meandering synth sounds, sweet vocals and deep bass. The flipside 'Version' mix naturally strips it back and dubs it out considerably, re-casting it as a space-age roots reggae dub with plenty of additional percussion.

Review: French label Patate have got two super new compilations out this month. Blackbeard Calling: Hulk's Reggae Archives Volume One is a new series looking at the best work of Rodguel 'Blackbeard' Sinclair. It comes two years after the label started working with him and pays homage by selecting 12 tracks of his produced during the second half of the seventies. Roots, reggae and dub all come together here as he collaborated with legends like Horace Andy, King Tubby and Johnny Clarke. The tunes are high quality from front to back and were composed with some of Kingston's best musicians.

Review: Trinity & Friends is a new compilation by French label Patate that collects the best work of Wade Brammer, a Jamaican DJ turned singer who went by the name of Junior Brammer as well as Trinity. He recorded a huge wealth of albums from the seventies onwards and worked with plenty of his contemporaries such as Barrington Levy, Black Uhuru and Barry Brown, all of whom feature alongside many more on this bumper album. The dubbed out sounds are drenched in echo and reverb, with impassioned vocals bring various different socio-political messages up top.

His long collaboration with British trip-hop outfit Massive Attack has given international recognition to the falsetto voice of this Jamaican artist. He collaborated with producers such as Bunny Lee, Tappa Zukie and Rodguel Blackbeard Sinclair over the years, and Strictly Ranking retraces those fruitful collaborations. A truly golden age of roots reggae, where Blackbeard was surrounded by renowned musicians, such as Robbie Shakespear on the bass or Santa Davis on the drums, plus the assistance of King Tubby - on one of his best achievements. The 12 tracks featured on here are rare and/or unreleased.

Review: Horus Records look back to the mid-seventies for this fine piece of instrumental funk reggae outta Jamaica. It comes from Keith Rowe and is the sort of tight little groover and well detailed rhythm to get you on your toes and sliding all over the floor. You'll also find a dubbed out version of rocksteady hit "Tonight" on the flipside, riddled with endless reverb that encourages you to sink in deep before the vocal comes on like a cosmic apparition and the woody hits scatter around you in the stereo field.

  1. Heartical Respect (3:36)

Review: The late, great Sugar Minott apparently recorded 'Heartical Respect' back in the mid-1980s with dancehall producers George Bell and Priest, though this is the first time it has officially been released. Minott's slick, soulful and rootsy voice is the perfect accompaniment to the track's punchy dancehall drums, sub-heavy bassline, clipped guitars, dark synth-strings and piano stabs. It's a fine track, all told, and it seems remarkable that it has remained unissued - or at least in the UK - for so long. The flipside dub-style 'Version' is naturally rather good too, with Bell and Priest eschewing Minott's vocal in favour of even weightier sub-bass and tougher dancehall drums.
