Chinese Beauty
  1. Lennie Hibbert - "Chinese Beauty" (3:11)
  2. Main Roots - "Plea My Cause" (3:22)
Review: On their latest deep dive into the vast vaults of Jamaica's Studio One Records, Rock A Shacka has unearthed two largely overlooked gems. On the A-side you'll find 'Chinese Beauty' by vibraphonist Lennie Hibbert, which first featured on his 1971 album More Creation. It's a wonderfully relaxed affair in which hazy organ stabs and Hibbert's fluid vibraphone solos solos rise above a languid, early evening riddim. Over on side B you'll find a genuine rarity: the sole single from Coxsone Dodd-produced outfit Main Roots. 'Plea My Case' is a fine harmony vocal number in which the singers plead their case to the Man Upstairs over a slow, chunky, head-nodding roots reggae groove.

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: Kiss, Cuddle & Torture: Volume 2 is the second album offering from The Hempoloics on their own Zee Zee. It's another of their unique collisions of reggae, hip hop, pop, dancehall and funk and comes with plenty of upbeat riddims that will no doubt get as much radio play as previous singles. Showing real development as well as lush chords, masterfully overdubbed keys and complex arrangements that were apparently written by the whole band together, it's another successful record. Check the contemporary flow and funky riffs of "Bongadashi" or more horizontal dub flexes of "In The Night" for highlights.

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.

Review: Although not as celebrated as some of his Jamaican peers, Clive "Azul" Hunte was responsible for producing some of the finest roots reggae to emerge from the island in the 1970s and '80s. Bad Bad Bad is therefore an essential retrospective, which much of the material focusing on his golden period between 1973 and '76. While there are some impressive cuts from big names present - see Junior Murvin's slow-motion reggae-soul cover of Curtis Mayfield's 'Give Me Your Love', the skanking weightiness of I-Roy's 'Flying High' and the classical reggae sweetness of Dennis Brown's 'Love Light' - much of the best material comes from lesser-celebrated artists such as the In Crowd, Pablo Moses, Bonny Gayle and Jam Now Generation. In a word: essential.

Review: Bad, Bad, Bad is a historical compilation that brings together the fantastic work of Clive Hunt, a roots and reggae producer from the 1970s and 1980s. Plenty of the guests helped bring him rightful acclaim and this collection has all the rare highlights with Bonny Gayle, The Abyssinians, Junior Murvin, Max Romeo and more all making the cut. Hunt himself also appears in his 'Lizzard' persona and as the lead singer of the In Crowd and next to that gem the iconic falsetto of Junior Murvin will always standout in any reggae collection.
