Come Into My Parlour (reissue)
Cat: HSRSS 0010. Rel: 17 Dec 21
Reggae Classics/Ska
  1. Come Into My Parlour (3:01)
  2. Check Him Out (2:27)
Review: Rocksteady era combo The Bleechers put out a lot of music in a short period of time, with the entirety of their bustling catalogue recorded and released between 1968 and'71. For much of that period they were associated with the Upsetter himself, the late Lee 'Scratch' Perry, and it's two of his productions for the act that are showcased on this Harlem Shuffle 7". Originally released via Upsetter Records in 1969, and tricly to find ever since, 'Come Into My Parlour' is a jaunty, organ-rich affair in which soulful vocals and heady Hammond licks rise above a classic, late-60s Upsetter groove. B-side 'Check Him Out' is equally as alluring, with an arguably stronger vocal and more prominent guitar licks replacing the pair's favoured Hammond B3.

Peace Begins Within
Peace Begins Within (7" repress)
Cat: HSRSS 0001. Rel: 15 Dec 21
Reggae Classics/Ska
  1. Peace Begins Within (2:57)
  2. Ay Ay Ay Ay (Ange-Lala) (3:06)
Review: Last year, Agnes Obel included Nora Dean's "Ay Ay Ay Ay" on her fantastic Late Night Tales and got plenty of people talking about this overlooked gem. Featured on the B side of this 7", it's an enchanting and folky dub backed by an ominous droning organ and psychedelic guitar riffs, with a sense of smoky soul, curious chants and whistles. With vocal effects that are reminiscent of Pink Floyd's 1968 track, "Julia Dream", Dean has perhaps delivered one of the strangest songs with the most compelling vocal performance in the history of Jamaican music. Flip over for early Reggae masterpiece "Peace Begins Within," on which Dean's vocals soar over an uplifting beat, despite the track being about the harsh re-alities of life. Tip!

Pumping In
Cat: HSRSS 004. Rel: 15 Jul 20
Reggae Classics/Ska
  1. Pumping In (2:31)
  2. Knock On Wood (2:37)
Review: For the latest volume in their ongoing "Reggae Cut Loud" series of seven-inch singles, Harlem Shuffle Records have gathered together two suitably rare gems from the undisputed king of rocksteady, Alton Ellis, neither of which have previously featured on a "45". A-side "Pumping In", an early rocksteady treat, is rich in R&B style guitar riffs, warm bass and an echo-laden vocal from Ellis. It was recorded in 1970 but for one reason or another only surfaced a few years ago. Flipside "Knock On Wood", a cover of the Eddie Floyd soul favourite, was recorded a number of times by Ellis; this version is the superior 1972 Joe Gibbs take, which boasts some superb Hammond organ sounds and a defiantly dub-wise reggae riddim. It's absolutely essential.

Mini Skirt & Go Go Boots
Cat: HRSS 0008. Rel: 02 Jul 21
Reggae Classics/Ska
  1. Mini Skirt & Go Go Boots (2:39)
  2. What You've Got (2:15)
Review: Harlem Shuffle Records is on an admirable mission to reissue amazing 60s and 70s sounds on a fully legitimate basis. This one from Lloyd & Glen actually landed in 1967 on the Jamaican Comet label. It was never issue on these shores on vinyl, until now. The lead single is brilliantly produced and strikes a mythic party pose with heavy drums but flamboyant horns and expressive vocals. The lyrics, too, are tight and concise and are part of the reason the tune is so sought after today. The flipside 'What You've Got' is another great track by Lloyd and Glen with a big beat and more great horn work.

That Girl
Cat: HRSS 0009. Rel: 10 Sep 21
Reggae Classics/Ska
  1. That Girl (2:24)
  2. You Got Me Going (2:40)
Review: Standby for some more classic ska from the good folks at Harlem Shuffle. This reissue is of an essential double sider that first landed on Crystal in 1967. Crystal was owned by Jamaican producer Derrick Harriott, who also produced both of these great tunes. As well as his rolling rhythm and essential horn sounds, the tunes have outstanding vocals from the duo of Lloyd and Glen. 'That Girl' is a red hot jam that is very hard to find and super expensive if you do. On the flip, Lloyd and Glen serve up a love song with aching vocals and more big horns. An essential 7" by any measure.

John Jones
Cat: HSRSS 0006. Rel: 02 Jun 21
Reggae Classics/Ska
  1. Rudy Mills - "John Jones" (2:35)
  2. The Crystalites - "Bombshell" (3:04)
Review: Harlem Shuffle Records mission to legitimately reissue killer cuts from the sixties and seventies continues apace here with a pair of tunes that were originally published separately on two of Trojan's labels, Bigshot and Explosion. Both jams are truly in demand and often fetch eye watering prices so it's great news for fans that both have been put on one tidy 7". Rudy Mills's 'John Jones' has had millions of views on YouTube and is a yearning bit of ska and lovers rocker with a swaggering groove and yearning vocal work. The flip has the lovely 'Bombshell' by The Crystalites as a very special instrumental.

These Boots Are Made For Walking
Cat: HSRSS 0005. Rel: 18 Dec 20
Reggae Classics/Ska
  1. These Boots Are Made For Walking (2:54)
  2. That's Nice (2:58)
Review: Under the alternative name The Bees, Syramip were one of the UK's first proper reggae groups. In 1969, they signed to Trojan and released their first album, Syramip Moonstomp, a year later. It's from that album that the lead cut on this essential Harlem Shuffle Records release is taken. A-side 'These Boots Are Made For Walking' is a raucous, ska-influenced rendition of the now much-covered Lee Hazlewood song first recorded by Nancy Sinatra in 1966. It's a fiery and forthright cover and one guaranteed to put smiles on faces. Over on side B you'll find 'That's Nice', a sweeter, slower and more laidback reggae ballad recorded during the Syramip Moonstomp sessions, but previously only available on later CD compilations.
