New releases galore!
Yes folks... another Roots Edition of Ackee & Saltfish, another heap of new releases to be reviewed... enjoy - some pretty good stuff's coming your way!
LUCIANO - CALL ON JAH
Another new release by the Messenjah? Nah... not really, this one is a compilation of previously available material, mainly gathered from the Jetstar-release "Great Controversy" and some vinyl-singles. So if you don't have these already, this one is recommended. But be aware, this CD is in for the loudness-race - blame the mastering-engineer!
FIONA & LLOYD BROWN - REALLY TOGETHER
Well, you know... as springtime finally has arrived and hormone-levels are higher than usual, this is the right album at the right time. Lovers, this one's especially for you... 'cause nothing sweeter than love - well, maybe this album is.
VARIOUS ARTISTS - REGGAE GOODIES VOL. 1 & 2
Big up the folks who are doing all these Wackie's re-releases! Here's a fine one: stuff from the late 70's, two volumes from the "Reggae Goodies"-series on one CD. That's good value for money, I'd say!
LEROY SMART - MISTER SMART IN DUB
Here's another fine label - Jamaican Recordings - who's catering the Reggae-folks with some great recordings from back then. Plus, most of the stuff has previously been unreleased! Here's some crucial dub-work courtesy of Mr. Bunny Lee - fine dubbed out tunes from singer Leroy Smart... highly recommended.
LEROY SIBBLES - STRICTLY ROOTS
This is #2 from our little series of absolutly crucial Leroy Sibbles-rereleases. Recorded in the very early 80's, "Strictly Roots" is an album in showcase-style - means you get vocal versions plus dubs and you get it for the very first time on CD!!! A must-have album from one of the legends of Reggae, and you get it only online here: http://www.leroysibbles.com Don't miss the next Roots Edition of Ackee & Saltfish, when we review one of the best Reggae-recordings made in the 80's... the absolutly wonderful album "On Top"... wicked, I tell you.
ADRIAN XAVIER - R NATURE
This is the debut of a fresh talent out of Seattle, and we just love it! Some really good songwriting and singing here, the production-work is excellent and the CD comes in a beautiful digipack. Check out the very talented Adrian Xavier online here: http://www.sacredgroove.com/
