Crazy Kind Of Feeling
Crazy Kind Of Feeling (140 gram vinyl 12")

  1. Crazy Kind Of Feeling (5:15)
  2. Crazy Kind Of Feeling (dub take 1) (5:18)
  3. Crazy Kind Of Feeling (DJ Duckcomb Discomix) (7:47)
Review: The always cultured Emotional Rescue kicks of the first of what will be a series of reissue sou the music of young Michael Ashley aka Haile Maskel. He hailed from Trenchtown in Jamaica and grew up singing, learning guitar and bass, redoing under the tutelage of Bob Marley early on. Here his soul drenched reggae is offered dup with 'Crazy Kind Of Feeling', a unique track with horns and big bass but also a subtle disco energy. Next to a dub take, Patrick Billard aka DJ Duckcomb serves up a mix that embellishes on the disco elements.

Kill The Devil
  1. Kill The Devil (3:22)
  2. Bury The Devil (3:36)
Review: Original copies of the original 1978 seven-inch of 12 Tribes Of Israel's debut single are not only hard to find, but also exceedingly expensive on the rare occasions they do come up for sale. This reissue then is well overdue. "Kill The Devil" is that rarest of things: an instrumental roots reggae workout that peppers a dancefloor-friendly groove with fluid piano, Hammond organ and jazz guitar solos. The flipside dub version - re-titled "Bury The Devil" - is also superb, with a stripped-back, reverb-drenched version of the track's killer groove rightly taking pride of place throughout.

Stamp N Go
Cat: FTR 034. Rel: 16 Jun 21
  1. Stamp 'n' Go (3:46)
  2. Stamp 'n' Go (part 2) (3:45)
Review: Here is the second single on Skankin' Society, a new sub label of Geneva's Fruits Records. 'Stamp 'N' Go' by Antonin Chatelain and Mathias Liengme (aka The 18th Parallel) is instrumental ska with a roots feel. A horns line that will stay in your head, with the addition of mind-blowing solos by talented musicians such as Anthony Dietrich Buclin, Michael Borcard and Alexandre Schneiter, not to mention the legendary Leroy 'Horsemouth' Wallace on the drums. The B side features an alternative filter mix by Roberto Sanchez.

Benwood Dick
Benwood Dick (7" + insert)
Cat: AB 048. Rel: 03 Jun 21
  1. Benwood Dick (2:38)
  2. Apollo 12 (2:13)
Review: Laurel Aitken has got plenty of essential singles in his discography but this Benwood Dick / Apollo 12" is one of the most desirable of them all. It was originally issued in 1969, but only a pre-release, with the full thing cancelled. That has made it rare as hens teeth, but rightly so. The suggestive lyrics might not sit well with every in today's climate but the riddim itself is faultless. It's carried by heavy bassline, as is the flip, which is a skinhead referencing tune that has achieved cult status. Pressed on eco-vinyl and remastered for this reissue, don't miss out.

Tune Up Ska (reissue)
  1. Tune Up Ska (3:16)
  2. Time Is Ska Tight (Aternative take) (3:53)
Review: While this record looks and sounds vintage - like the majority of Original Gravity's output - it is in fact a revivalist, turn-of-the-60s style ska production from Welwyn Garden City's Neil Anderson. A-side 'Tune Up Ska' is particularly potent, with Anderson and his studio musicians serving up a classic ska groove (think walking bass, up-tempo rhythm and blues drums and tight horn blasts), onto which a variety of fuzzy saxophone and organ solos are layered. Clubs may not be open right now, but when they do, we can see it lighting up ska-loving crowds. Over on the flip, Anderson and company turn their attention (sorry) to Booker T & The MG's cut 'Time is Tight', reinventing it as a boisterous, horn-heavy affair featuring some superb trumpet solos.

Gotcha (7")
Cat: MHR 037BLK. Rel: 12 Nov 21
  1. Gotcha (4:43)
  2. Maldito (3:13)
Review: You may have missed it due to last year's pandemic madness, but The Altons debut album, In The Meantime, was a glorious retro-fusionist fusion of rhythm and blues, Southern Soul, rocksteady and psychedelic soul. This "45" on the reliable Mango Hill label offers up two killer cuts from the set and is well worth checking. Choose between 'Maldito', a dewy-eyed fusion of ska and dusty 1960s soul full of glistening guitars, gorgeous close harmony vocals and jaunty bass, and the heart-aching brilliance of 'Gotcha', a bluesy psychedelic soul number capable of making the hairs on the back of your neck stand to attention.

Cat: SJR 43412. Rel: 08 Nov 19
  1. Horace Andy - "Fever" (3:47)
  2. Im & The Agg - "The Flue" (2:04)
Review: "Fever" is one of Horace Andy's biggest hits. Amazingly, it has never been given its own release so Studio One has done the right thing and put it out on a super loud 12" for the first time. It first landed way back in 1973 before Andy rose to contemporary fame appearing with Massive Attack on five of their albums, but still hits hard. The lush vocals sit well in the swinging drums and bass, and makes it a sure fire dance floor destroyer that won't hang around. Comes accompanied with a Cedric "Im" Brooks instrumental version on the flip.

Work All Day

  2. The Dynamites - "Play All Night" (3:29)
  3. Clarence Wears - "Working Mood" (2:50)
  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.

Take Me With You
Cat: HR7S 154. Rel: 20 Nov 20
  1. Take Me With You (3:25)
  2. Take Me With You (version) (3:30)
Review: With sunshine becoming a regular occurrence again just in time for summer, two of France's more soulful producers have decided to join forces and offer up something suitably warm and relaxing. With the assistance of vocalist Kahina Ouali, Blundetto and Booker Gee have recorded a killer, Hammond-laden version of Lyn Christopher classic "Take Me With You" that sits somewhere between the organs-and-lo-fi-drum machines flex of Timmy Thomas' "We Can't We Live Together" and the soulful reggae grooves of 1980s lovers rock. The fine A-side original mix, which boasts Ouali's full vocal, is our pick of the pair, though the flipside instrumental "Version" mix, in which Booker Gee gets busy on the organ, is also superb.

Out In The Rain
Cat: BB 104. Rel: 20 Nov 20
  1. Out In The Rain (3:50)
  2. Out In The Rain (version) (3:55)
Review: Guillaume Metenier is Booker Gee, a master edit maker and studio wizard who has made his name with some much wanted work on Lucien Entertainment as well as more than once on this label. His second release this month is a trip into the world of ska. 'Out In The Rain' is a perfect sweet spot between rolling reggae rhythms, warm organ chords and skipping kicks. The mood is sensuous and inviting as Gee blends sweet soul with playful funk. The version is only a subtle rework, resining plenty of the charm and allure of the original.

  2. Axumites (dub) (3:37)
  3. Faith (3:49)
  4. Faith (dub) (3:49)
Review: On his previous releases as Booker Gee, Guillaume Metenier has employed his immaculate organ-playing skills over a range of killer funk and soul grooves. Here he flips the script, delivering atmospheric, fluid Hammond solos over some dub-wise reggae grooves played and produced by Spanish multi-instrumentalist Lone Ark (real name Roberto Sanchez). Both Metenier and Sanchez are in fine form on opener 'Auxmites', a bass-heavy head-nodder that sounds like Lee 'Scratch' Perry producing Jimmy Smith. 'Faith' is a little sunnier and warmer, with Metenier's solos working in perfect unison with Sanchez's glistening guitars, jangling pianos and skanking rhythm. Both cuts come accompanied by pleasingly spaced-out Dub revisions courtesy of Sanchez. Top stuff!

Review: Boston's Cultures Of Soul present some edits here of underrated Belizean artist Bredda "David" Obi whose musical style known as "Kungo Muzik" mixes key flavours from his home with reggae and calypso to rock and funk to formulate a modern tropical style. Years later, DJs and record collectors found his music in basements of record stores in Los Angeles and Brooklyn - some of which are featured here. Sol Power All-Stars will get you stoned into the groove with their acid-inflected rework of "Dancin'", L.A.'s DJ Duckcomb works the original's lo-slung dub influence on "Experience" while the ever reliable Justin Van Der Volgen similarly accentuates the reggae swagger of "Sunshine". A tribute to a legend!

Review: The legendary reggae vocalist Cornell Campbell celebrated the 52nd anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luthur King Jr on 4th April 2021 by getting i the studio. His new EP comprises some fine new interpretations of soul music's most iconic tunes about race, identity and injustice. First up are two versions of Michael Kiwanuka's 'Black Man In A White World', which hit home hard on a nice rolling riddim. On the flip side is 'Outernational Blues' which is a super take on the absolute stone cold Marvin Gaye classic 'Inner City Blues'. Crucial sounds for challenging times.
