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: 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: We're big fans of London vocalist Liam Bailey here at Juno HQ. He's turned out some timeless 7"s in the last few years and so this full length work is long overdue. Ekundayo translates from the West African Yoruba dialect as 'sorrow becomes joy' which is a perfect sentiment for the qualities of his own voice. Form experimental sounding openers to classic reggae via roots material, downtempo lullabies and fresh and contemporary R&B, it covers a wide range but is all tied together by his buttery smooth vocals. The record was recorded with long time mentor Leon Michels.

Review: Flying Vipers come through here with their first full length album Cuttings which is steeped in reverence for original Jamaican engineers of the 70s who were masters of their vast mixing consoles. Here the Vipers master steady drum & bass rhythms that are detailed with jazz melodies and a gritty post-punk attitude. The record builds on the success of The Green & Copper Tape EPs with extra horns, wild effects and vintage synths all making it a contemporary affair. All 12 tracks will get you in a meditative state where you can take some deserving time to reflect and sinking into your own mindful thoughts.

Review: Producer Lewis M and all-star reggae studio band The Inn House Crew have enjoyed a very successful 2020, delivering a swathe of must-check releases in their distinctive roots-reggae style. They're at it again here, offering up an EP of vocal and dub cuts inspired by the current global pandemic and based on the Inn House Crew's superb 'The Face Covering Riddim'. Barry Isaac sets the tone with a soulful plea for mask-wearing compliance ('Mask Up'), before regular collaborator Winston Ready re-purposes some of the lyrics from 'Hit The Road Jack' and David Janson delivers a more traditional Rastafari interpretation on 'Give Praise'. Elsewhere, pianist Fish delivers some evocative solos on 'Masked Up Piano', while Lewis M and Ben bell deliver a quartet of weighty 'Masked' dubs.

  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.

  3. I Fi - "Love Jamaica" (4:17)
  4. Jolly Joesph - "My Heart Is Broken" (3:55)
  5. Yilili (4:58)
Review: The latest release from French dub and reggae stable BAT Records comes courtesy of returning heroes Pinnacle Sound, whose recent digital-only album SEED sounded like a long-lost Jamaican album from the mid 1970s. It's a similar story this time round. 'Back Up' and 'What Have You Done', featuring lead vocals from Marcus I, sound like Black Ark period Lee 'Scratch' Perry productions for Errol Walker, with weary, soulful vocals riding dusty, bass-heavy riddims. Toaster IF-I does his thing over a very similar riddim on 'Love Jamaica', too. Over on side B, you'll find a jollier and cheerier roots reggae vibe on Jolly Joseph's 'My Heart is Broken', while instrumental closing cut 'Yilli' is a slow, steady, dub-wise instrumental rich in jazzy guitars and meandering organ solos.

  3. AJ Franklin - "Solomon" (3:17)
  4. Winston Reedy - "Hip Hip Hooray" (3:14)
Review: Producer Lewis M continues to make the most of his connections with the Inn House Crew, an all-star studio band made up of various veteran Jamaican reggae musicians. Here he presents an EP of "versions" built around the Inn House Crew's 'Contagious Riddim', which is included in a slightly spruced-up form - complete with additional solos and brighter mixing - as the A2 cut. Toaster Ras Ranger is the first to do his thing over the riddim, delivering nearly non-stop flows in his native patois, before AJ Franklin displays the riddim's versatility by turning in a soulful roots number ('Solomon'). Best of all, though, is Winston Reedy's effortlessly warming and soulful version, 'Hip-Hop Hooray'.

  4. Dubplate Cut 4 (3:29)
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.

Miracle Of Love (warehouse find)
  1. Devon Russell - "Miracle Of Love" (3:55)
  2. High Times Players - "Miracle Of Love" (version) (4:18)
Review: Even in this internet age where you can find out pretty much anything about anyone, Devon Barrant Russell's story remains much of a mystery. Bits of info are known about his life and recording career, but there are also huge gaps. What we do know is that he worked with High Times Players in 1984 on a full length, but then never again according to discogs. Despite that, this tune isn't on that album, so who knows where and when it was recorded. It's a warehouse find from a recent stock take and fuses a sentimental soul sound with blissful 80s reggae, R&B and roots vibes. It's a lovely little tune, too.

Review: There was a significant outpouring of grief when the death of Frederick 'Toots' Hibbert was announced in September. It was evidence of the ongoing love affair that many in the UK have with the music of Toots & The Maytals, a band who had been serving up ska and reggae records - and performing them live in Britain - since the late 1960s. The good news is that Hibbert lives on through his music, and 1981 album Knock Out - here reissued on vinyl - is one of he and his band's best. Breezy, warm and quietly soulful, the album boasts such as memorable songs as 'Revival Time', the synth-sporting 'Spend The Weekend', the loved-up 'Beautiful Woman' and the jaunty, Clavinet-heavy 'I Know We Can Make It'.

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.
