The big hit Ska classic everybody loves, sang by one of the top groups of the 60’s!! Along with the Maytals and the Wailers, the Blues Busters were one of the top groups at the time, however commercially they were going more of a mainstream than the others. Since their career goes way back in the late 50’s, they must have been idolized by so many of those who made their debut later in the Ska era. This is an essential mainstream Ska classic by the brilliantly skilled duo in their best form backed by no other than Byron Lee.

A harmonica instrumental version of the all time favorite, Summertime and instrumental cover version of the Soul classic. Both are great interpretations of instrumental covers that are ranked definitely as two of the greatest Rocksteady tunes. Taken straight from its master tape, Summertime is a masterpiece that condensed the splendor of the blinded harmonica maestro and famed vocalist, Roy Richards. Originally released in 1968 by Young Holt Unlimited and scored a big hit, this great cover of the Soul classic, which sounds easily fitting the pattern of Sir Coxsone’s taste who was the huge fan of US hits, was played loosely and effortlessly by then newly formed Sound Dimension.

Studio One/Dub Store Records JPN1967

¥1380 (US$11.77)

The killer Rocksteady-Ska like a vital bridge between both of them, backed with a Mittoo’s nice vocal tune. Throned from the Skatalites to the Soul Vendors, this is the last form of the Studio One Ska and it’s very much like the Soul Vendor’s party piece. Along with the B-side, Jackie Mittoo had directed both and his marvelous creativity can be seen allover. Each of them recorded from the original master-tape.

A great cover version of a Sam Cook hit with beautiful chorus and a killer instrumental that blended Jamaica’s Caribbean roots and Afro-Cuban essence. Jamaica’s favorite American singer, Sam Cook’s hit was beautifully transformed into a sweet and peaceful vocal Ska when it went through Studio One’s unique filter.

The flip side features a mixed style of Caribbean-decent music that Soul Brothers could play best at and Jackie Mittoo’s burning keyboard maneuver made this killer instrumental best of the best.

Channel One/Digikiller/Deeper Knowledge US

¥2100 (US$17.92)

Two awesome Channel 1 singles repressed for the first time ever since their original releases 30+ years. Little is known (to us) about Hands & Heart, other than that the group (?) recorded a tune for Pablo & Everton DaSilva around the same time as they cut a 12" for Channel 1 in the late '70s. This one is a great heavy roots tune with nice synth work. On the other side, this is our second Channel 1 release from Angela Prince, definitely cut at the same time as "Joker Lover" and just as heavy with the same somber tone.

Soul/Dub Store Records JPN1965

¥1280 (US$10.92)

The Celestials trademarked imminent sound can be heard in this elegiac killer Ska instrumental!! The bang on titled ‘Golden Horns’ representing the music itself. If they were ever based in Kingston, they may have had more opportunities for recordings which might have changed the history of Ska music. Such a great band indeed. Although it’s still quite a tune, it may sound a little monotonous on the flip side, showing Thelwell’s personal affection for Carlos Malcolm’s band.

Clive Wilson, Skatalites - One Ska, One Ounce Of Weed, One Beer / Federal Singers - Love Is All I Have

Federal/Dub Store Records JPN1965

¥1380 (US$11.77)

Based on the Rhythm and Blues classic, this is a super rare uptempo Ska cover and for all Ska Man and the DJ’s! Originally sung by Amos Milburn, in the 50’s this had been a sound system classic in Jamaica. There is nowhere else in the world but Jamaica could produce such a cover version and utterly convincing Drummond’s solo works nicely as a spice of this tune. Originally released on a blank label although it’s a super rare one to find - a proud copy to own and must have for all Ska Man. On the flip is a great vocal Ska yet the singer’s detail is completely unknown. *Recommended to pair this title with the instrumental version by Don Drummond on this very same series(DSR-FW7-04)

Granville Williams, His Orchestra - Wailin' / Granville Williams Orch. - Old McDonald

GWO/Dub Store Records JPN1965

¥1280 (US$10.92)

An ultimate super killer Ska instrumental by an extremely unprolific band, brilliantly recorded in stereo. Although this newly signed band recorded exclusively for Federal releasing an LP, they play a little commercial uptown sound, however the Skatalites admitted their inferiority to this band’s performances. The interestingly arranged “Old McDonald” on the flip features the guitarist Ernest Ranglin. Very rarely recorded in stereo for the time in Jamaica, only could have been done by the notorious Federal which clearly was known for its up-to-date setups.

¥1380 (US$11.77)

A perfect, yet low-keyed, Studio One Rocksteady double A-sided masterpiece!! Recorded in 1967 while Clement Dodd and Soul Vendors were on tour in the UK. The former Jamaican popular singer Owen Gray, who had already been living there then, voiced these unique pieces. It sounds very different from the ones recorded at Brentford Road, although both tunes certainly have the “Coxsone Sound” ? A masterpiece that is refined, and maximize the talent of this one-time star. Only ‘The Raver’ was recorded from the original master-tape.

114
Soulettes - That Ain't Right

Soulettes - That Ain't Right / One More Chance

Studio One/Dub Store Records JPN1965

¥1380 (US$11.77)

Brimmed with the vibes, this un-released killer Ska cover was recorded when Rita Marley and the Soulettes were at their best. Although it had never been released back then, Chris Wilson and the Heartbeat crew compiled this as a part of compilation series in the 90’s. The great Mr. Coxsone Dodd knew what's going on; as a spice, he occasionally released some unpublished materials. Like the name "Soulettes" suggests, this type of Soul music is their specialty and this is a female vocal Ska masterpiece.

116
Soul Brothers - James Bond Girl

Soul Brothers - James Bond Girl / Summertair Girls - My Heart Cries Out

Studio One/Dub Store Records JPN1966

¥1380 (US$11.77)

Another classic killer ska from the short-lived Soul Brothers. As of the original on the other side comes a sweet female lovers vocal from a night before the Rocksteady era. Succeeding the authentic ska from the legendary Skatalites then evolving it to the sound of Rocksteady, a fluid session band of Studio One, the Soul Brothers bring another classic instrumental ska tune. Like you can almost smell the perfume of Rocksteady era at its best, here comes a cool and cute lovers tune from Kingston on the other side. When the Soul Brothers were active after the Skatalites, they have certainly lost the thrill of solo performances, though this might have been the Skatalites were just too great.. Recorded from the master tape itself, this take contains slightly different solo compare to the original single.

Channel One/Digikiller/Deeper Knowledge US

¥2100 (US$17.92)

Killer previously unreleased Barry Brown from Channel 1, from early '80s sessions that at one point were slated to make up his aborted second LP for the label. Two slow and heavy Radics rhythms, no doubt these were played on dubplate by some of the sounds of the day.

155
Traditions - When (Coloured Vinyl)

Traditions - When (Coloured Vinyl) / Train Is Coming

Channel One/Digikiller/Deeper Knowledge US

¥2100 (US$17.92)

Two killer unreleased tunes from the early '80s. The Traditions were a group with seemingly no other released tunes. We suspect one of the members was Roy "Soft" Palmer, the late Greenwich Farm singer. Roy, with only a handful of solo cuts to his name, was seemingly more often a harmony singer than a lead singer, as he was part of both "The Spears" who backed Junior Ross, and "The Nazarines" who backed Frankie Jones (real name Anthony Palmer), who was also Roy's brother. In any case, "When" is at last a next cut to the rhythm used for Barrington Levy's "The Winner", a Channel 1 classic which long time Channel diehards have always wished had more cuts. "Get Ready" aka "Train is Coming" is yet another cut on the immortal "Fight Fight" rhythm which we just can't get enough of, hard Channel style. Both sides with dubs.
