Dillinger vs Trinity - Clash
(Burning Rockers BS-1003 UK-77 VG+ 275:-)

The sounds of Jamaica have brought many things to the world of music, including the inspiration to talk or rap, rather than sing, over music. Originally this was a live feature of the Jamaican dancehall as the DJ/toastmaster livened up the audience with chatty witticisms and ribald observations on life, but soon became popular enough for the nascent deejays to enter the recording studio and lay their moves on wax. Clash albums such as this one became very popular at the tail end of the 1970’s and into the 1980’s with both singers and deejays competing against each other track by track.

Original UK pressing; both sleeve and vinyl are graded VG+.
Harriott, Derrick - Greatest Reggae Hits
(Trojan TRLS 116 UK-75 VG+ 275:-)

Born in Kingston, Jamaica, reggae singer/producer Derrick Harriott began as a member of the Jiving Juniors (from 1958 through 1962) before embarking on his own solo career, in addition to producing other artists. Harriott tended to rework old R&B love songs as reggae tunes, but his best-known song, "The Loser," was an original composition.

Original UK pressing.
Ijahman - Haile I Hymn
(Island ILPS-9521 UK-78 EX 275:-)

Trevor Sutherland has been on the cutting edge of Jamaica's music for more than four decades, continuing to influence reggae and ska vocalists with his eclectic approach and songs of spirituality, love and humanity.

The debut of Ijahman Levi was a monumental event in reggae music. Here are four extended meditations of melodies pure and strong that are some of the most moving and divinely inspired ever. Levi's voice is calming and soothing, powerfully emotional at just the right places for emphasis of a thought.

Original UK pressing with lyric inner.
Ras Michael - Rastafari
(Vulcan VULP-005 UK-75 VG+ 275:-)

Ras Michael is the master of fusing roots reggae with the true Rasta music - Niyabinghi - the pure hand drum music that the Rasses chant to and praise God. This album is essential. You will get a glimpse of Peter Tosh's genius on guitar and clavinet!
Small, Millie - Best of Millie
(Island ILP-953 Swe-67 VG+ 300:-)

Jamaican teenager Millie Small stunned the music business by reaching number two in both the U.S. and the U.K. with "My Boy Lollipop" in 1964. Born Millicent Small in Clarendon, she was one of the very few female singers in the early ska era in Clarendon.

Rare first issue 1967 Swedish pink Island 'eye' logo label 14-track MONO LP - a feast of R&B/Ska treats including "In A Dream" [duet with Jackie Edwards], "Oh! Henry" and "My Boy Lollipop".

Housed in a flipback picture sleeve featuring many shots of a thoroughly mod Millie. The sleeve has a previous owners name on the back and some slight damage to the upper right corner; the vinyl is in Excellent condition - a gem!
Thompson, Linval - I Love Jah
(Burning Sounds BS-1035 UK-79 VG+ 400:-)

Linval Thompson's reputation as one of the finest reggae singers from the roots-renaissance is undisputed. A prolific producer, Thompson has released a number of his own vocal (and dub) albums through independent labels and his own imprints.

"I Love Jah" is one of Linval's early outings as his own producer, with classic rockers backing from the Revolutionaries.

UK limited edition pressed on RED VINYL. The picture sleeve has some light general wear whilst the vinyl shows very little signs of play.
