Review: Al 'Alphonso' Campbell was born in Kingston, Jamaica, and soon went on to become a core part of the first generations of dancehall artists. He was a prolific vocalist who served up his first album in 1977 and kept on recording well into the new millennium. He made 36 albums in all and 1978's No More Running, originally in Terminal, is up there with the best of them. It featured Sly on drums, Robbie Shakespeare on bass and Tommy McCook on tenor saxophone along with a host of other talents. The rhythms hit hard, and the socio-political lyrics are no less impactful.

Review: Back in May 2021, Edinburgh's Athens Of The North served up the first volume of this immediately classic series. That one sold out in quick fashion - like, to be honest, most of the stuff this label puts out - and bow comes a second volume which is just as hot. Once again the focus is on pulling together the lovers rock covers the label has put out previously. It kicks off with a super take on the stone cold classic that is 'Just The Two Of Us' while Sylvia Tella's 'You Might Need Somebody' is another standout with its Balearic guitars and slow and sensuous grooves.

Review: First released in the UK by Tottenham-based Atra Records in 1974, The Black Breast Has Produced Her Best Flesh of My Skin Blood By Blood has long been considered one of the edgiest roots albums of the period and a must-have for serious reggae collectors. The album resulted in its creator, the sadly departed Keith Hudson, being dubbed "the dark prince of reggae". Listening back to this welcome reissue, it's easy to see why. For starters, the lyrical content is highly politically charged and righteous, while Hudson's weighty musical arrangements are far more trippy, hazy and dimly lit than those found on most roots reggae records of the period. This edition also includes three additional tracks not found on the original release, plus exhaustive sleeve notes from Hudson biographer Vincent Ellis.

Review: During last year's lockdown in Italy, contemporary dub producer Paolo Baldini was invited by Pressure Sounds to work on Bunny Lee's archive of recordings he made with singer Barry Brown during the mid-to-late 1970s. The results can now be heard on Praises, a set which adds a little more dub-wise spice to classic roots reggae cuts while retaining much of Lee's production and instrumentation. Brown's vocals - effortlessly soulful, hugely evocative and partially improvised - are simply superb, while Baldini's handling of Lee's riddims and musical arrangements is masterful. As a result, the assembled dubs, versions and vocal reworks sound faithful to the period in which they were recorded while adding subtle new touches and 21st century-ready low-end weight.

Review: Founded by Derrick "Duckie" Simpson, Don Carlos and Rudolph "Garth" Dennis, Black Uhuru is one of the most celebrated ever reggae acts. They were also the first to ever win a Grammy Award after forming in Kingston, Jamaica in 1972 and later added Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare to their rhythm section. Showcase was their second album, landing in 1977 and becoming a sought after classic in the ears since. An OG copy will cost you a few quid so Taxi finally reissue the whole thing in all its roots glory. The rhythms are fresh and embellished with a wide array of percussion and melodies that go beyond the standard reggae palette and help make it such a classic.

  1. Hercules (LP version) (4:22)
  2. Hercules (North Street West Holyvoodou vocal remix) (5:56)
Review: Jo Wallace's Ramrock label has always proved adept at blending reggae, dub and lovers rock with elements of jazz, soul and Balearic beats. You'll find a similar blend of sounds at the heart of the label's latest 12" - a fine, roots reggae style cover version of Aaron Neville's much-loved rare groove jam 'Hercules' by Asian Dub Foundation singer Ghetto Priest. His version (side A) is effortlessly soulful, with warming horns, clipped guitars and his own sublime vocals rising above a languid reggae riddim. Arguably even better is Darren Morris and Ashley Beedle's flipside remix, which adds bluesy pianos, hazy horns, vibrant Clavinet riffs and Ghetto Priest's vocals to a faithful rendition of the swinging, bumpin' groove that made Neville's 1973 version so addictive.

Review: Emotional Rescue are turning their attention to King & City, a label that dealt in the UK-rooted take on reggae, lovers rock, at the turn of the '80s. First up is this sublime cover of William DeVaughn's evergreen, much-covered soul classic 'Be Thankful For What You Got'. This take is breezy and hopeful, but still shot through with a certain sense of longing in the tight riddim backing up the sweet vocals. On the flip, Emotional draft in one of their favourite remixers, the mighty Lexx, to deliver a disco mix that teases out the original and amps up the dub-outs for maximum groove satisfaction.

I Remember Mama

  1. I Remember Mama (4:09)
  2. Hard Times (4:21)
Review: Emotional Rescue and HMV Record Shop (Japan) end their DISCO REGGAE LOVERS 7" series with reggae legend Sugar Minott and this utterly unique UK soul-boogie rarity, I Remember Mama.

Reggae star, vocalist, producer and sound system operator, Kingston JA born Minott released over 50 albums and hundreds of singles for the likes of Studio One, Wackies, Suffering Heights and his own Black Roots label.

His distinctive soulful voice pioneered the Dancehall style and following his UK hit "Hard Time Pressure" he moved to London in 1980, adopting the rising Lovers Rock sound. On a visit to Wackies' offices in Soho he met Steve Parr, who had recently opened a studio next door.

Keyboard player for the likes of Desmond Dekker and Geno Washington, Parr moved into composition, mixing, sound engineering and production, before setting up the Sound Design Studio in Dean Street.

Principally a studio, the meeting with Minott hatched the idea to create a label to showcase their capabilities. Produced by Parr, he played all the instruments except the distinctive sax by friend Andy MacDonald.

With Minott's heartfelt lyrics, this marriage created a one-off, a ground-breaking synthesised 4/4 rhythm track with funk groove and soulful vocals. Released on 7" and 12", the versions noticeably differ and is the perfect closing to the DISCO REGGAE LOVERS series.

Review: 'Nice Up The Dance' is nabbed from the upcoming Jeremy Harding-produced Dancehall Anthems album. That is a collection of brand new versions of classic reggae and dancehall tunes featuring names like Kabaka Pyramid, Sean Paul and Beenie Man, among others, who add their own spin on classics from Yellowman, Michigan & Smiley and Ken Boothe. Kabaka Pyramid first broke through with his 2017 album Kontraband which turned plenty of heads and keeps up the fine styles on this one. Flip it over for Royal Blue's smooth and loved up 'Without Love.'

Review: Frankie Knuckles' legendary 1991 house record 'The Whistle Song' is the inspiration for this new roots and lovers rock cover on Japanese label Flower. Last year, Eric Kupper reissued his 'Sound Factory Re-rub' and some people took to pitching it down, spinning it at 110 bpm. Now, Flower Records' Reggae Disco Rockers have doe a proper chill out cover that is surely set to be one of the sunset smash hits of the summer. Next to a zoned out and horizontal a-side with all its majestic flute is an even more dreamy version on the flip that takes you to ambient heaven.

Review: Joy Division manager Rob Gretton talented spotted X-o-dus in the late seventies. They were a Manchester reggae band who you might know from their single 'English Black Boys.' It was produced by legendary UK dub don Dennis Blackbeard Bovell and lends its name to this newly remastered compilation which collects together seven of the group's best tracks on 500 copies of vinyl. That epic ten-minute single opens up with its meandering leads and hooky guitar riffs, then the likes of 'See Them A'Come' and 'Society' further showcase the band's laid-back, deeply immersive take on dub.

Baba Boom (limited 12")
Cat: AR 12032. Rel: 18 Aug 21
  1. The Jamaicans - "Baba Boom" (3:09)
  2. The Techniques - "Travelling Man" (with Tommy McCook & The Supersonics) (5:13)
Review: Jamaican rocksteady vocal group The Jamaicans linked with Tommy McCook & The Supersonics back in 1967 for this piece of rocksteady gold. The a-side of this reissue comes with the original Treasure Isle-version of the 1967 festival song. It's heavy, love struck, earthy and organic. The super B-side is a remixed version of the A-sides's backing track, but with the addition of some overdubbed percussion and syndrum parts as well as a sweet but uncredited toasting and DJ appearance by Jah Thomas. Both sound as hot and crucial now as they did all those many years ago.

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.
