N/A

This reissue features a cool vocal Ska song from 1964 and Jamaican Soul song by boy and girl duo recorded in 1962. Amount of releases was not so remarkable for Derrick Harriott in the Ska era, which could be said as a blank period of his career but despite of the fact, this is simply an authentic and cool minor code dance anthem. The flip side features an excellent Soul duet that was an unusual set at the time. This hot dance number was played in early days of sound systems.

Ernest Ranglin - Mod Mod Ranglin

Dub Store Records JPN 1967

¥2880 (US$26.94)

A fundamental album released in 1966 that determined the way Rocksteady was going to journey. In 1966, Rude Boys were at the peak of the fame with their notorious behaviors, while Ska gradually started to slow down its tempo, this album paved the way for a newborn music, Rocksteady with rather slower and tighter rhythm approach. This album should be picked one of 10 pieces of the most important album of Reggae history.

Tony Tuff - Separation; Dub / Tony Tuff; Revolutionaries - Come Along; Proverves

Channel One / Digikiller / Deeper Knowledge US

B: Truth & Rights

N/A

The Channel 1 Lost & Found series returns for it's fourth installment and it's the biggest and baddest one yet. A huge double-sider from Tony Tuff. Both of these tunes were cut for Channel's still-unreleased Tony Tuff album, but were making the rounds on dubplate and became favored by sounds. The massive "Separation" was played by Jah Shaka, and this original cut is, in our opinion, far superior to the second version Tony cut shortly after for his self-produced album on the CSA label. "How Long" is an awesome tune on Channel's cut of 'truth & rights' which became an anthem for Jah Love soundsystem. Again, both sides with dubs!

Flick Wilson - Ready Fe Dem / Ready Fe Dub

Jah Life / Bond Export / Deeper Knowledge US 1984

¥1180 (US$11.04)

A massive unreleased tune from Flick Wilson, cut at Channel 1 around 1984. The backing band sounds a lot like the Gifted Roots Band who were resident at Channel 1 around this time. We are big fans of Flick and feel he was really under-recorded, so unearthing this gem was a pleasure, killer vocal and a rock-hard riddim.

On the flipside, remarkable solos by trumpet and alto saxophone are again featured on the bright mid-tempo track. The original 7inch format is almost impossible to find.
