The Twinkle Brothers - Countrymen LP 1980 Virgin Records (2002 reissue shown) [swipe left for 1987 UK reissue cover on Twinkle label] / As detailed previously, the brothers Norman & Ralston Grant were from Falmouth in the Trelawny parish of Jamaica. They began to teach themselves music in their youth by singing & constructing their own improvised instruments, after years of practice & some eventual success in local competitions, they would join an established group in the area called The Cardinals where they would gain their first professional experience playing on the North Coast tourist circuit in the early 1960's. Several years later in 1966 Norman would make his debut recording for producer Leslie Kong's Beverly's label, further records would surface for producer Edward 'Bunny aka Striker' Lee & others while they also turned to self production eventually leading to their breakthrough debut album Rasta Pon Top in 1975 (see my previous post of that LP). After the success of that album, they would secure an international contract with UK based Virgin Records, for whom they would deliver three albums from 1978-1980. What eventually led to their separation from Virgin Records is exactly the quality which has led to their legendary status: their refusal to alter their messages beyond the classic Roots Reggae & their essential rejection of the then dominant thematic trends of Early Dancehall, this is not to say they became outdated instead their material never became watered down by trying to be something it wasn't, it should also be noted they were not adverse to advances in studio technology, arrangement, or instrumentation. Although the market didn't necessarily support it, The Twinkle Brothers' roots music would only grow in strength & power over the albums they recorded for Virgin, culminating in their masterpiece Countrymen album.

Michael Rose - Born Free b/w 'version' 7" single c. 1976 Boss label (1990's reissue shown) / As detailed, Lloyd 'Prince Jammy' James (now known as King Jammy) had a long history in the music business since the 1960's working in electronics, running his own sound system, working with overseas labels including Summer Records while in Toronto, Canada, & upon return to Jamaica his employment at Osbourne 'King Tubby' Ruddock's famed studio where he became the top remix engineer from 1976 for the next several years. At this same time, he decided he would enter into production for himself while also constructing his own rudimentary studio at his house on St. Lucia Road just a few blocks from Tubby's studio on Dromilly Avenue. For Jammy's first release, iconic figure Vivian 'Yabby You' Jackson gave him a basic instrumental remake of the famous Shank I Shek rhythm which he transformed into the "Zambia - Revolution Conference" 7" single in 1976 (see my previous post of that single). Another early production collaboration between Jammy & Yabby You involved a developing Waterhouse singer named Michael Rose who would go on to later massive fame as a member of Black Uhuru & as a solo artist. The track here was recorded by Rose sometime in 1976 but also surfaced in a UK released discomix in 1979, the song was also produced in association with UK sound system owner Ken 'Fatman' Gordon who was a regular around Tubby's studio & had many dub mixes done by Jammy. The track itself is absolutely top quality, it opens with a cascading keyboard line with added reverb & filter on the backing as Rose emotively sings his message of being "Born Free" but feeling oppressed & rejected. The b-side has a full force King Tubby's studio mix using all the techniques of the master: track drops, track solos, heavy reverb, EQ filter, delay, voice extracts, & more. #AllVinylReggaeCollections #MichaelRose #PrinceJammy #KingJammys #YabbyYou #KingTubbysStudio #ReggaeHistory #instavinyl #vinyligclub #45rpm

Delroy Williams b/w Roots Radics Band - Ten To One b/w 'dub' 7" single 1982 Message label / As mentioned, singer Delroy Williams (not to be confused with Leon Delroy Williams of The Aces) likely commenced his recording career at the famed Studio One before continuing sporadically over the middle part of the 1970's. Around 1978, he joined with iconic artist producer Horace 'Augustus Pablo' Swaby for a series of 7" & 12" single releases leading to his debut I Stand Black album in 1982. Without question, one of the most influential American groups in Jamaica has always been The Impressions, many of their compositions have been covered & adapted in numerous versions over the years. One very popular song was "Ten To One", originally adapted in Jamaica by The Mad Lads at Studio One for a massive hit in 1969, the original 7" single falsely credits them with composition. In 1982, Williams & Pablo would record their own version where Pablo sets the subdued tone with his extended organ phrasing over heavy drums & bass as Williams shows the beauty of his well controlled voice on this classic love theme. The b-side has an excellent dub remix which highlights the power of The Roots Radics band as Errol 'Flabba' Holt's thick bass notes sound against gunshot drum strikes while further instrumentation is drawn across the mix. #AllVinylReggaeCollections #DelroyWilliams #AugustusPablo #TenToOne #ReggaeHistory #ReggaeVinyl #instavinyl #vinyligclub #45rpm

Eric Donaldson b/w I Roy - What A Festival b/w Version Festival 7" single 1973 Lion label / As mentioned, singer Eric Donaldson began his recording career at the famed Studio One in the mid 1960's where he worked as a solo artist before moving forward as a member of The West Indians vocal group. After the dissolution of that moderately successful group, in the following decade Donaldson worked with various producers including Edward 'Bunny aka Striker' Lee who produced his major hit "Cherry Oh Baby" which won the Jamaican Independence Festival song competition in 1971, Donaldson's somewhat limited output for the rest of the decade concentrated on Festival material as well as album length presentations aimed at the overseas market. From among those Festival related tracks is this 1973 song for artist producer Lloyd 'Charmers' Tyrell, recorded at Dynamic Sounds. The song itself is actually a condemnation of that year's Independence celebration where he uses a version of the rhythm from his previous "Cherry Oh Baby" for his lament "What A Festival". The b-side has the deejay (rapper) from Spanish Town known as Roy Reid aka I Roy who provides his characteristic banter on "Version Festival", this track recently surfaced on the Pressure Sounds compilation Tape Rolling using the title "Festival Mash Up" with an additional spoken intro not present here.

Derrick Morgan - People Decision LP 1977 Third World label (2017 Radiation Roots label reissue shown) / As detailed, the legendary singer Derrick Morgan was born in the Clarendon countryside of Jamaica but was raised in the Allman Town sector of Kingston. As with many of the first wave of Popular music recording artists in the second half of the 1950's in Jamaica, Morgan had gained his initial exposure & fame through the Vere Johns Opportunity Hour stage show talent contests as well as subsequent live performances. In his first years of recording, Morgan worked with producers including L. S. 'Little Wonder' Smith (Hi-Lite label), Arthur 'Duke' Reid (pre Treasure Isle Studio), Clement 'Sir Coxsone Downbeat' Dodd (Coxsone label, pre Studio One), Cecil 'Prince Buster' Campbell (Wild Bells label), & Leslie Kong (Beverley's Records). Morgan became highly successful & scored many hits over the next years domestically as well as overseas where his material was distributed by the now iconic Blue Beat Records. Two significant events in Morgan's career occurred in 1967, the first was the formation of his own Hop label where he released his material & his productions of others. The other major event was when he joined with his brother-in-law Edward 'Bunny aka Striker' Lee who was just entering into production for himself with his Jackpot & other imprints in addition to his Agro Sounds record shop on the famous Orange Street in Downtown Kingston. Lee & Morgan would go on to deliver numerous hits for the rest of the decade & into the next. Despite his mainstream career cooling a bit after the mid 1970's, Morgan continued to record steadily with Lee & others, he was also something of a legend to his UK fans from even the Mod days & was now rising even higher in this alternate market.

Barry Brown - Step It Up Youthman LP 1979 Paradise label (1993 Lackpot - Black Solidarity label reissue shown) / As mentioned, Barrington Michael Brown was a young aspiring singer in Kingston during the mid 1970's when he joined Rod Taylor & a Chinese Jamaican singer named Johnny Lee in their vocal group The Aliens which had little success. In 1977, in his mid teens Brown would make his first real entry into recording with a series of tracks for successful producer 'Prince' Tony Robinson including the hit "Mafia" from 1978 & for the ever present Edward 'Bunny aka Striker' Lee with "Step It Up Youthman". With the public attention from these first hits, Brown was able to establish himself among the new wave of Youthman singers emerging on the Kingston scene in the late 1970's. This style is characterized here by emphasis on energy over melody, more rhythmic delivery, & underpowered sometimes delicate & frail vocals that are often also pushed to the limit. In 1979, Striker would gather further material from Brown for his debut album. The rhythms were recorded at Harry J Studio with veteran engineer Sylvan Morris using Striker's session musicians The Agrovators who at this time included Lowell 'Sly' Dunbar or Carlton 'Santa' Davis on drums, Robbie Shakespeare on bass, Tony Chin & Earl 'Chinna' Smith on guitars, with keys from Errol 'Tarzan' Nelson & the legendary Winston Wright. These basic instrumentals were brought to Osbourne 'King Tubby' Ruddock's famed studio for voicing & final mix by engineer Pat Kelly (who was mainly a singer but worked sporadically at Tubby's). The album opens with Barry Brown's message that he is a "Trying Youthman" who will persevere, done over an energetic backing with rolling bass & lively drums. The first side continues with his honest cultural message of "Truth And Right" before his statement of commitment to Rastafari on "Give Thanks & Praise" over an excellent Agrovators rhythm track.

Various Artists - Bunny Lee's Agro Sounds 101 Orange Street LP 2014 Kingston Sounds label (material recorded c. 1967-1973) / The name of Edward O'Sullivan Lee, also known as Striker or Bunny, has never been given the same admiration in the history of Jamaican music as that of such figures like Clement 'Sir Coxsone Downbeat' Dodd of Studio One or Arthur 'Duke' Reid of Treasure Isle Studio, although it has been suggested that Lee's entire recorded catalog exceeds the combination of both of the above. Part of this is directly (& justly) due to the fact of Reid & Dodd's previous sound system participation, pioneering involvement in the recording of Popular music in Jamaica, & later studio ownership. Lee instead made his contribution as the ultimate facilitator by providing introductions, finding musicians & new artists, finding ways to update older artists & bring them back to relevance, helping studios upgrade equipment, helping artists form their own labels, gaining overseas exposure & distribution for artists, & many more thankless tasks which Lee performed often with no direct compensation in the belief that everyone would benefit if the entire genre grew. Another very important aspect of Lee's contribution was encouraging endless sonic experimentation among his musicians which drove further developments within Rocksteady, Early Reggae, Roots Reggae, & Dub music. Born in 1941 in the Greenwich Farm sector of Kingston, Lee was immediately exposed to local music like Mento & the sounds of the great Jamaican Jazz bands of the decade. During the 1950's Lee became a patron of the many powerful sound systems the came to rule the decade like Duke Reid's Trojan, Dodd's Sir Coxson Downbeat, Thomas Wong's Tom The Great Sebastian, & Count Nick The Champ.

Lloyd Parks & U Brown b/w We The People - Reach Out - Dub It Deh b/w Part Two Wizard Style 12" single 1978 Parks label / As detailed, Lloyd Parks initially entered into the music business as a solo singer before joining with Wentworth Vernal to form vocal group The Termites who made their debut in 1967 at the height of Rocksteady with a series of hits at the iconic Studio One. During this time, Parks also worked as a musician playing bass in groups like RHT Invincibles before forming his own Skin, Flesh & Bones band in the late 1960's. After the dissolution of The Termites, Parks would once again emerge as a solo singer while also entering into production with his own labels. In 1978 he released this track likely recorded at Channel One using his latest band known as We The People. The track has Parks' vocals (& bass) on a cover of Holland & Dozier's "Reach Out" originally made famous by The Four Tops. The version here rides a lively Roots Reggae adaptation of the original arrangement with a restrained horn line behind Parks' quite effective vocals which are replaced half way through this over nine minute extended discomix by skilled deejay (rapper) Huford Brown aka U Brown who expounds on the talents of Parks as 'The Bass Wizard' in his highly rhythmic style as he encourages to "Dub It Deh". The b-side has an over eight minute well executed extended dub remix "Part Two Wizard Style" using track drops, delay, EQ manipulation, reverb, & more as constant heavy bass & drums provide a solid foundation for passing horn lines & other instrument fragments. #AllVinylReggaeCollections #LloydParks #UBrown #ParksRecords #Discomix #ReggaeHistory #instavinyl #vinyligclub #45rpm #ReggaeVinyl

Jimmy London b/w Ansel Collins & Skin-Flesh-Bones - Can't Get Used To Losing You b/w Losing You 7" single 1975 Giant label / As mentioned, singer Trevor Shaw began his career alongside Ransford White (later known as Billy Dyce) in vocal duo The Inspirations who would score some immediate hits with producer Lee 'Scratch' Perry in the late 1960's including their iconic "Tighten Up" whose sound helped define the period. The following year after The Inspirations' 1970 debut album for UK based Trojan Records, Dyce & Shaw both emerged as solo singers with Shaw using the name Jimmy London. With his new persona, Shaw continued to work throughout the decade for various producers turning out successful material destined for the 'uptown' domestic & overseas markets. Being embraced as a part of the Lovers Rock movement in the UK kept up demand for Shaw's smooth ballads, cover songs, & Soul Reggae, he responded with a steady output. This 7" single for producer Lloyd 'Spiderman' Campbell was recorded around 1975 using bassist Lloyd Parks' band Skin, Flesh & Bones with Ansel Collins on keys. On this release, Shaw turns in an effective cover of Bobby Darin's "Can't Get Used To Losing You" over an energetic slick Reggae rhythm where his voice effortlessly dips & soars. The b-side version "Losing You" presents the basic rhythm track with some added reverb & EQ manipulation with Collins' funky keyboard highlighted against some extracts of guitar in delay. #AllVinylReggaeCollections #JimmyLondon #SkinFleshAndBones #AnselCollins #LloydParks #Giantlabel #ReggaeHistory #instavinyl #vinyligclub #45rpm

Paul Davidson - Kingston b/w Kingston Version 7" single 1977 Wild Flower label / Paul Davidson first appeared as a vocalist (that I know of) on a Generation Gap album around 1973 before resurfacing in 1975 with a hugely popular cover of Gregg Allman's "Midnight Rider" which saw eventual release as a 7" single in the UK, USA, Canada, & several different countries in Europe. During this time he seems to have been employed at Federal Studio in one of their all around positions as composer, session arranger, engineer, & more, he also played harmonica as a session musician. In 1976, together with fellow artist producer Leighton 'Pluto' Shervington he conceived & executed a successful cover of the recent Larry Weiss composition "Rhinestone Cowboy" made massively famous by American singer Glenn Campbell in 1975. His next high profile song was this 7" single released in 1977, it was composed by Rupert Cunningham & a certain E.G. Chin-Fook who both had previous composition credits with known acts, production is credited to Geoffrey Chung. It has been said, (although without definitive proof obtainable by me) that the rhythm track was recorded at Lee 'Scratch' Perry's iconic Black Ark Studio before being overdubbed & mixed later at Treasure Isle Studio. The song opens with Western sounding electric guitar & harmonica on top of an energetic Reggae rhythm of steady drum & bass as Davidson channels his Country & Western style into a tribute to the city of "Kingston", there is a guitar solo in the middle of the track which is unusual for Reggae. The b-side has a well mixed dub version using track drops, voice extracts, reverb, delay, & more. This is the unlikely intersection of 1970's American Country Music with Reggae. #AllVinylReggaeCollections #PaulDavidson #WildflowerRecords #GeoffreyChung #ReggaeHistory #instavinyl #vinyligclub #ReggaeVinyl #45rpm

Eek A Mouse - Wa-Do-Dem LP 1981 Volcano label (1990's Jah Guidance label reissue shown) / Despite the massive fame he was later to achieve, relatively little is known about the background of Ripton Hylton aka Eek A Mouse. He has mentioned being from the area known as Ghost Town in Kingston located above the northwest corner of Trench Town & bordered by Calvary Cemetery, but whether he was born & raised there or just a resident at the time is unknown. The most often repeated facts about his past are that he gained his nickname from a racehorse he frequently bet on & that his debut recordings were a pair of tracks financed by one of his teachers in 1975 while he was still in high school. As on these tracks, he would make a further recording in 1978 where he sang in a straight Reggae style although his soon to be famous characteristic Singjay style was already under development as he made the rounds performing on different unidentified sound systems. Eventually in 1980, around age twenty three, Eek A Mouse would debut his unique 'Chinese Apache Indian' style in a series of tracks recorded for producer Joel 'Joe Gibbs' Gibson, unfortunately for him Gibbs was completely unable to understand the significance of this breakthrough & was also unwilling to release what he determined must be classified as obscene ('slack') since Eek A Mouse was singing "Once A Virgin" & "Virgin Girl". One producer who was never caught behind trends at this time was Henry 'Junjo' Lawes, the top producer of Early Dancehall who immediately recorded "Noah's Ark" & gave it an overseas release on the young Greensleeves Records based in the UK. The following year Eek A Mouse took the Jamaican dance halls by storm with a heavy Junjo produced remake of "Virgin Girl" titled "Wa-Do-Dem" delivered in his unique style. With this success, he could be found performing on top sound systems like Virgo, Aces International, Gemini Hi Fi, & others while also making a huge impact with his appearance at the 1981 Reggae Sunsplash live concert.

No domingo passado completei 27 anos, idade delicada para estrelas de brilho tão intenso como eu, Amy Winehouse, Kurt Cobain e outres. Pretendendo enganar a morte como meu filme preferido ensinou ser possível, renunciei à maldição tradicional dos rockeiros e firmei os pés definitivamente em minha peregrinação rumo à iluminação que só o Reggae inspira.
São Luís do Maranhão é uma realidade paralela, um silêncio que suspende o tempo, uma textura grave que desafia a lógica. Parecia um transe, um sonho, um delírio. Meu coração de rudegirl se encheu de amor e profunda realização pela oportunidade de aprender mais sobre essa conjuntura riquíssima que é a presença da cultura jamaicana em território ludovicense através da música, da dança e das radiolas/sistemas de som. Seguem algumas imagens de quando fui arrebatada no Museu do Reggae, o único do gênero fora da Jamaica. Big up! 🇯🇲🦁🇧🇷

Various Artists - Rockers Inna Hungry Town, Vol. 1 LP 1979 Hungry Town label (2004 reissue shown) / Jamaican expatriate Everton DaSilva was living in New York City when he started his Hungry Town record label in the late 1970's to distribute licensed material from Jamaica as well as his own productions which were usually done as basic rhythm tracks in Kingston then brought to NYC for overdubs & vocals. As mentioned, DaSilva produced a sizable percentage of his material at this time in connection with successful artist producer Horace 'Augustus Pablo' Swaby, as such these tracks featured artists associated with Pablo like The Immortals & Ricardo 'Ricky' Grant (of huge Rocksteady group The Gaylads) as well as lesser known but talented singers like Roman Stewart & Barrington Spence. Some of these productions were gathered for this 1979 compilation & most feature the musicians used by Pablo at this time credited as Rockers All Stars, they were mainly led by Junior Dan on bass & Albert Malawi on drums, with Fazal Prendergast on guitar, & Pablo himself on all forms of keys. This collection opens with a Barrington Spence vocal where Pablo's characteristic synth sound lays a foundation for his energetic delivery of his "Plan For Babylon". As evidenced by his aforementioned participation in Rocksteady master group The Gaylads, Ricky Grant is a highly talented & accomplished vocalist which is displayed in his emotive "Rocky Rocky Road" & his wonderfully delivered message of unity "All For One", the backing singers present could likely be the Thaxter brothers. The singers Mike Johnson, Max Bowman, & Val Heron began recording as The Immortals in the end of the 1960's & released less than a half dozen tracks total, here they present their 1976 masterpiece "Can't Keep A Good Man Down".

Various Artists - Rockers Vibration LP 1982 DATC label (2002 reissue shown) / As detailed, Michael 'Mikey Dread' Campbell began working at the Jamaica Broadcast Corporation (JBC) radio station in 1976 as a sound engineer. Within a short time, Campbell was able to make the transition to on air personality where he rapidly gained fame playing the graveyard shift with exclusively Reggae music which was unprecedented at the time. With this popularity, Campbell made numerous connections in the music business with established artists & producers seeking exposure for their product as well as new artists seeking an entry into the business. While this fact initially guaranteed him a steady supply of pre-release tracks as well as exclusive 'dub plates' for play on his radio show, in 1978 these contacts would take on a new importance when Campbell entered production with his Dread At The Controls (DATC) label. Over the next several years, Campbell unleashed a series of heavy Roots productions featuring himself as well as other known & unknown artists, he generally used the musicians of Roots Radics but also other personnel like The Revolutionaries & Soul Syndicate at studios like Channel One & Aquarius with final mix mostly done at Osbourne 'King Tubby' Ruddock's iconic studio where Campbell himself was known to sit behind the famous board from time to time. In addition to his own albums, Campbell also presented several compilations of his productions containing some unreleased tracks as well as some drawn from previous 7" singles. This collection opens with the fairly obscure vocal group The Ovationz comprised of Melvin Trusty, George Hunter, & another unidentified (by me) singer, here they offer the 1980 love theme "Shy Girl" where their excellent Youthman style vocals arrive over a heavier than lead rhythm with some dub technique application by engineer Hopeton 'Scientist' Brown at Tubby's studio which takes center stage in the second half of this extended track.

KING STITT: HERBMAN SHUFFLE (Trojan 12") 1980. The great toaster Winston Spark better known as King Stitt also dubbed himself the Ugly One referring to his very unusual appearance; pretty he wasn't and it was this novelty along with his great DJ talents that made him so popular as one of the first wave of Jamaican MCs. His career stretches back to 1957 when he was encouraged by Count Machuki to join Sir Coxsone's Downbeat sound system. Stitt stayed around Coxsone at Studio One from then on. The fashion, pre U Roy was less verbal, more interjectary American Style jive which although more stripped down was just as exciting and loaded with attitude. Stitt recorded this tune for Clancy Eccles at the end of the 60s and is a great example of his legendary prowess. Stitt died in 2012 aged 72, quite a ripe old age in Jamaican artists' terms. This is a 12" pressing by Trojan from 1980. Maybe so brief a tune didn't deserve the space usually afforded to a vocal/version Discomix but hey - check that cover. #kingstitt #clancyeccles #coxsonedodd #trojanrecords #trojanreggae #bosssounds #skinhead #reggae #ReggaeHistory

Junior Murvin b/w Mikey Dread & Roots Radics - Bad Man Possee b/w Brixton Possee 7" single 2007 Dread At The Controls label (track recorded 1982) [spelling errors on label] / As discussed, Murvin 'Junior' Smith was born & raised in various locations in the Jamaican countryside & coastal areas before relocating to the Trench Town sector of Kingston after his schooling. Pursuing his desire of a place in Jamaica's vibrant music scene, Murvin would make his first recordings for artist producer Derrick Harriott in 1968 using the name Junior Soul (not to be confused with older artist Valman Smykle who was also known as Junior Soul). After recording steadily into the start of the next decade, Murvin would spend a few years as a stage performer with The Falcons & a later group called Young Experience. The next major event in his career would occur in 1976 when he arrived at producer Lee 'Scratch' Perry's iconic Black Ark Studio where their collaborations would lead to the now classic Police & Thieves album in 1977. After this massive success, Murvin would score again with his "Cool Out Son" for producer Joel 'Joe Gibbs' Gibson in 1979. Murvin would move into the following decade with work for artist producer Michael 'Mikey Dread' Campbell which resulted in the Badman Possee album in 1982, the title track of which saw release as a 12" single the same year. In 2007 that track & the accompanying dub remix also from the album was reissued as a 7" single on Mikey Dread's label. The song itself "Bad Man Possee" finds a typically heavy DATC sparse rhythm rooted in Early Dancehall where Murvin's effortless trademark falsetto delivers an ultimatum: find a gear. The b-side "Brixton Possee" showcases the deep Roots Radics rhythm filled with thick bass, gunshot drum strikes, floating piano, & extracts of Murvin's falsetto all processed using EQ manipulation & filter with other elements of dub technique. #AllVinylReggaeCollections #JuniorMurvin #MikeyDread #ReggaeHistory #EarlyDancehall #instavinyl #vinyligclub #RootsRadics #45rpm
