The Uniques: Absolutely ThE Uniques, Expanded Edition 2018

In 1967, when the lilting rhythms of rock steady ruled Jamaica’s airwaves, the island boasted an array of popular vocal trios and quartets, such as The Maytals, The Heptones, The Pioneers, The Ethiopians, and a group who over a period spanning less than two years, recorded some of the most popular and enduring music ever to see issue in Jamaica: The Uniques.

Comprising Keith ‘Slim’ Smith, Lloyd ‘Charmers’ Tyrell and Martin ‘Jimmy’ Riley, The Uniques enjoyed a run of hits on Jamaica’s national charts, initially recording with celebrated producer, Bunny Lee, before launching their own Tramp label with the assistance of local businessman, Winston Lowe.

At the close of 1968, the best of their Tramp recordings to date were gathered on the long player, “Absolutely”, but within months of its issue, the trio had disbanded with its three members all going on to achieve substantial solo success on the Jamaican music scene.

Now, almost 50 years after its original issue, this ultra-rare album is at long last re-presented here, with its 12 tracks augmented by the remainder of the group’s hugely sought-after Tramp recordings.

Track List:

1. RUN COME
2. WATCH THIS SOUND
3. JUST A MIRAGE
4. OUT OF LOVE
5. A YUH
6. SPEAK NO EVIL

Bunny Lee - Jumping With Mr. Lee 1967-68 REPOST !!!

Another in Trojan Records' excellent Producer Series, Jumpin' With Mr. Lee spotlights Bunny Lee's rock steady production work from 1967-1968. Like the Joe Gibbs' entry in this series, The Reggae Train, Jumpin' With Mr. Lee includes everything from soulful vocal numbers to instrumentals. In contrast to Gibbs' heavy and full sound, though, Lee favored a leaner production style that featured steely horn and guitar work anchored by a buoyant rhythm section. Some of the vocal highlights include Slim Smith and the Uniques' "Love and Devotion" and Ken Parker's cover of the Sam Cooke hit "A Change Is Gonna Come." On the instrumental side there is the liquid-toned work of alto saxophonist Lester Sterling on "Sir Lee's Whip" (it's hard to say if this is in reference to the boss' studio manner or not) and Vin Gordon's eerily satisfying trombone workout on "Sounds and Soul." The high-quality sound throughout helps make these 18 solid tracks one of the better rock steady collections available.

TRACK LIST :
The Sensations - Long Time Me No See You Girl
The Uniques - Love And Devotion
Val Bennett & Bunny Lee All Stars - Jumping With Mr Lee
Derrick Morgan - Hold You Jack
Lester Sterling & Stranger Cole - Bangarang
Pat Kelly - Little Boy Blue
The Uniques - Story Of Love

The Caribs - Carribean Capers 1964 - REPOST !!!


 We all know the familiar black and white checkers of 2 Tone and that it stands for racial unity - particularly between blacks and whites in Britain in the late 70s and early 80s. Most of the bands were made up of both black and white musicians, and it is commonly accepted that they were playing traditionally black music with a new white influence.
It could be said , however, that the roots of the 2 Tone concept go way back - even before ska music came into its own.
Jamaica's first studio band was The Caribs who played and recorded in Kingston from 1958 to 1968. And though they are recognized as one of the first bands to ever play the ska sound they were in fact formed in Australia and were made up of only white musicians. They started playing clubs in Surfer's Paradise, Queensland in the late 50s and already were using the name The Caribs. They played calypso and mento and experimented with other Caribbean folk sounds.
In 1958 their manager Max Wildman was offered a job running a new hotel in Jamaica and he agreed as long as he could bring the Caribs with him. Only three members - Dennis Sindrey (guitar), Peter Stoddart (piano), and Lowell Morris (drums) made the move. They were joined by bass player Lloyd Brevett who later joined the Skatalites and other local black musicians and began incorporating ska into their set in effect becoming the first 2-tone ska band. They became a regular act at the Glass Bucket Club where they performed for Errol Flynn, Che Guevara, and even Winston Churchill amongst others.
When Jamaican studios first went into business the Caribs were in demand as a support group for Owen Gray, The Jiving Juniors (the Caribs was the band playing on the hit 'Lollipop Girl'), and lots of other acts including Laurel Aitken. They worked with producers Simeon Smith, Chris Blackwell, and Coxsonne Dodd.

Studio One Freedom Sounds - Studio One In The 1960s


A new collection from Soul Jazz / Studio One focussing on the intense period in the second half of the 1960s when Studio One’s vast and unbeatable output of ska, soul, rock steady and reggae made it literally one of the hottest musical empires in the world.

Powered by the finest in-house musicians working in Jamaica, whether it was The Skatalites, Jackie Mittoo’s Soul Brothers, The Sounds Dimension or The Soul Vendors, Studio One functioned as hit factory on the scale of Motown in the USA, shaping and defining reggae music for decades to come.  Singlehandedly Studio One’s founder Clement Dodd was able to create the most successful vertically-integrated record company that Jamaica had ever known with pressing plant, printers, studio, shops and sound systems all running at once, with over 50 employees and hundreds of artists working with Studio One during this time. "

The Fabulous Five Incorporated - F F One

The Fabulous Five Inc. was initially a show band supporting various singers across Jamaica.[2] They backed Johnny Nash on the reggae cuts comprising most of his 1972 platinum album I Can See Clearly Now.[citation needed] Their first recording was "Come Back And Stay", which was a number one song in Jamaica. During their first three years on the road, they won the Swing Awards for best band.

Fab 5 have enjoyed a succession of hits in Jamaica and the markets of North America. Their multi‑award-winning soca album Yu Safe was the most-popular album produced in Jamaica in the 1980s. Their soca smash "Shape" is very popular and the band's versatility is expressed in Dugu-Dugu, their all-reggae release, and the preceding all-ska album Ska Time. The musician and journalist Sonny Bradshaw said Fab 5 is the only Jamaican band still playing authentic ska.

They have developed songs not only with the music of Jamaica, but with their own compositions of soca, the music of the Eastern Caribbean. They have performed soul, funk, rock, jazz, disco, gospel, and classical music. Their album Christmas In the Sun is the most-successful Christmas album by a Jamaican band.

The Fab 5 have their own recording studio (Stage Studio), record label and distribution company (Stage Records). They are still working frequently, for concerts and dances, and as a leading creator of commercial jingles. They have been the chosen band for almost every national occasion since the mid-1970s.[citation needed] In 2003, Fab 5 received the Prime Minister's Award for Excellence in The Performing Arts for its services to Jamaican music. In 2015, they were given an award for their contribution to Jamaican music by the Jamaica Cultural Development Commission (JCDC).

Fab 5 took their brand of Jamaican music around the world, working with artists including: Ray Charles; Dizzy Gillespie; the Grateful Dead; Rick James; Linda Ronstadt; the Neville Brothers; Roberta Flack; Fats Domino; Peter, Paul & Mary; Joe Jackson; The Chi‑Lites; Skeeter Davis (with whom they were working on a recording project at the time of her death); the Drifters; Miriam Makeba; Bob Marley; Jimmy Cliff; Chuck Jackson; The Mighty Sparrow; Aretha Franklin; Gladys Knight; Harold Melvin & The Bluenotes; Jerry Butler; The Manhattans; Ray Goodman & Brown; The Delphonics, Beres Hammond, Marcia Griffiths, Queen Ifrica, Mr Vegas, and Tarrus Riley. They have performed at the Kool Jazz Festival, the New Orleans Jazz Festival, at Japansplash, and have entertained a live audience of one million at an anti‑nuclear concert in New York's Central Park. In July 2011, their performance at the Celebrate Brooklyn! festival drew a 5-minute ovation and their performances at the Irie Fest in Toronto during Caribana have become legendary

Ernie Smith - Skareggae (Generation LP 1981)

Smith was born in Kingston in May 1945 and raised in St. Ann and May Pen.[2][3] His father played guitar and bought him an instrument when he was twelve.[2] He played guitar in the band The Vandals in Claremont, St. Ann, after leaving school, and was nicknamed 'Ernie' after Ernest Ranglin.[2] He initially (unsuccessfully) sought a career as a radio announcer, but then approached Federal Studios looking for work as a songwriter, ending up recording his songs himself.[4][5][6] His first recordings were not a success and Smith spent time working in life insurance before returning to the studio.[2]

Recording initially in an easy listening style, Smith's first chart success came in the late 1960s with "Bend Down", which was followed by Jamaican number one hits in "Ride on Sammy," "One Dream," and "Pitta Patta", all produced by Richard Khouri at Federal, the latter based on Lee "Scratch" Perry's "Musical Transplant" rhythm, which was voted the best song of the year in Swing magazine.[2][4][7] In 1972, he won the Yamaha Music Festival in Japan with "Life Is Just For Living", a song originally written for a Red Stripe commercial.[4] In 1973, he was honoured by the Jamaican government with The Badge of Honour For Meritorious Service in the Field of Music.[4] An album, Life Is Just For Living followed in 1974 on Trojan Records. "Pitta Patta" was followed by further Jamaican hits with "Duppy or Gunman" and "Key Card".[7] Smith also had success with covers of popular songs such as "Help Me Make It Through The Night" and "Everything I Own", and as a songwriter had success at the Festival Song Contest in 1974 with Tinga Stewart's "Play De Music".[7] Smith's "I Can't Take It" topped the UK Singles Chart in 1975 when recorded by Johnny Nash under the title "Tears on My Pillow".[7] The change of title led to Smith initially missing out on royalties due to confusion with the Little Anthony song of the same name.[5]

In 1976 his "The Power and the Glory" was seen by some as a criticism of Prime Minister Michael Manley's policies, and led to threats on his life, prompting him to relocate with his family to Toronto, Ontario, Canada, where he recorded the albums To Behold Jah and Skareggae.[3][4] In the late 1970s, Smith largely appealed to older audiences and released Gospel-influenced records such as 1978's I'll Sing For Jesus album. In 1981, Smith moved to Miami to be closer to his wife and children, later moving to Fort Lauderdale, but was beset by financial difficulties and cocaine and alcohol problems.[4] Smith found help in the form of Bob Marley's mother, Cedella Booker, who he collaborated with as a songwriter, and in 1987, film director Perry Henzell asked Smith to write songs for his Marcus Garvey musical.[4] Smith returned to Jamaica in the wake of Hurricane Gilbert, and began recording and performing again, initially with a new band, The New Agenda. In 1996, he released the Dancehall Ernie Cleans It Up album, featuring new recordings of some of his best known songs.[4]

In 2008, Smith returned with Country Mile, an album that was preceded by the singles "That's The Kinda People We Are" (a duet with Pluto Shervington) and "Give Her a Lion" (featuring Ron Muschette).[3]

Yabby You - Dub It to the Top 1976 - 1979

The world's finest reggae reissue label strikes again, bringing to the market yet another buried treasure of dub from that genre's heyday in the mid-'70s. As always, the packaging is a labor of love that features rare photos of the artists and liner notes that are detailed and thorough. And as always, the sound is spectacular; Blood and Fire has gained international recognition for its ability to take deteriorated master tapes and dusty vinyl singles and LPs and render them almost pristine without imposing any of the sonic astringency so often associated with digital remastering. This time out the featured album is a rare gem from the Yabby You catalog originally released under the title Yabby You Meets Michael Prophet. Here its original program is expanded by eight tracks, most of them B-side dub versions of singles produced under Yabby You's direction. The dub mixes were overseen by the legendary King Tubby, and as usual, the combination of Yabby You's dark, dread musical vision and Tubby's otherworldly approach to remixing results in many moments of absolute brilliance; in this case, those include a deeply twisted dub of the Yabby Youcomposition "Blood a Go Run Down King Street" ("Heads a Roll Dub") and "Achieving in Dub," on which Tony Tuff chats over a cut of his own vocal performance on "I Must Achieve What Is Mine." But really, there are no weak spots to speak of anywhere on this album. This is a unique and beautiful document of two of roots reggae's greatest talents working together at the height of their powers.

The Ethiopians -Reggae Power Expanded Edition

The Ethiopians was founded by Leonard Dillon with Stephen “Tough Cock” Taylor and Aston “Charlie” Morrison at the tail end of the ska period. The first songs the group recorded at Studio One included “Live Good”, “Why You Gonna Leave Me Now” and the rocksteady classic “Owe Me No Pay Me”, produced by Lloyd Daley, and aimed at a man known as Stampede that owed Dillon money. The uncertain nature of the music business caused Morrison to then quit the group, since he had a young family to support. Undaunted by his departure, Dillon and Taylor went back to Studio One to record another half-dozen tracks, including the boastful “I’m Gonna Take Over Now”, and a late-ska number called “I Am Free,” which castigated an unfaithful lover. When the group left Studio One they released the self-produced single “Train to Skaville” which became their greatest hit. Subsequent singles, “The Whip” and “Cool It Amigo”, were recorded at WIRL studio with top rocksteady band, Lynn Taitt and the Jets, and licensed to Sonia Pottinger for release in Jamaica, as well as Graeme Goodall’s Doctor Bird label in Britain.
Sir J.J.

They then enjoyed their most fruitful collaboration with producer Karl J.J. Johnsson aka Sir J.J. During the period 1969-1971 they had many big hit tunes with tunes like “Woman Capture Man”, “Hong Kong Flu”, “Well Red”, “Everything Crash”, “Wreck It Up”, “What A Fire” and “The Selah”. The Sir J.J. phase yielded the popular albums “Reggae Power” and “Woman Capture Man”, both issued by Trojan Records in Britain. From 1971 to 1975 the group recorded for a variety of producers, including Derrick Harriott, Winston Riley, Prince Buster, Rupie Edwards and Joe Gibbs.

The Ethiopian

In 1975 Stephen Taylor was killed in a car accident. Leonard Dillon, the real guiding force of the group, carried on alone, using a variety of back up singers. The album “Slave Call” was released in 1977 and 1980 he returned to Studio One to record the album “Everything Crash” as The Ethiopian. The “Dread Prophecy” album, shared with The Gladiators, was issued by the American label Nighthawk in 1986, “One Step Forward” surfaced in France on Blue Moon in 1992, “Owner Fe De Yard” was a Studio One set issued by Heartbeat in 1994, “Tuffer Than Stone” was recorded with Jahco Thelwell in 1999 and issued on the Melodie label in France, while “Mystic Man” was issued by Studio One in 2002. The Ethiopians reached the end of their final chapter when Leonard Dillon died on 28 September 2011.
The Ethiopians – Reggae Power/Woman Capture Man

Doctor Bird Records, a division of Cherry Red Records, specializes in vintage Jamaican sounds licensed from the legendary catalogue of Trojan Records. They have put the two seminal Sir J.J. albums plus an additional seven bonus tracks on one cd. What a joy to hear those classic tunes in digital clearity! The LP “Reggae Power” was an amended version of the Jamaican album of the same title, replacing Roy Shirley tunes by Ethiopians tunes. One was a Studio One cut and is omitted from this release. The first three songs are solid rock hit tunes, the same goes for “Hong Kong Flu”, focusing on the fly pandemic on 1968/69. Two instrumenmtal tracks here. First there’s the funky “Robert F. Kennedy”, and “One Dollar Of Soul” by the J.J. All Stars. The 1970 issued LP “Woman Capture Man” shared three tracks with “Reggae Power”: “Woman Capture Man”, “Hong Kong Flu” and “Everything Crash”. Four songs were released in the UK as singles, while the other five exclusive to the album. Highlights here are “Things A Get Bad To Worse”, “I’ll Never Get Burnt”, “Opportunity” and “Hang On”.
Bonus Tracks

The re-issue is enhanced with seven bonus tracks from the same period, all procuded by Sir J.J. Included are the hit tunes “Wreck It Up” and the uptempo song “Well Red”. Further solid efforts are “Buss Your Mouth” and “Mek You Go On So”. In fact, no weak tune can be found here. The songs, all penned by Leonard Dillon, show what a sorely neglected talent Dillon was, who has made a distinctive and important contribution to Jamaican music.

justin hinds & the dominoes - from jamaica with reggae (expanded edition)

 First time reissue on CD for the Reggae trio’s 1976 debut album, featuring some of Justin Hinds And The Dominoes’ biggest Jamaican hits and 14 bonus tracks……Ian Canty relates the odd story of a highly successful singing outfit who had to wait over ten years before they were permitted to release a long playing record…..

It is a puzzler how Justin Hinds and the Dominoes had to wait until 1976 to release their debut album. The band had been around one form or another since the early 60s and had a lot of success in Jamaica through the years, Carry Go Bring Come being their big Ska era smash. The Dominoes had a close relationship with Duke Reid, the record baron that was at the top of the pile all through Rocksteady, but by the 70s the Duke was ailing. Sonia Pottinger took over the production side of the group as well as Reid’s Treasure Island label and her intervention is probably what gave the Dominoes a shot at a LP. But on finally getting an album release, From Jamaica With Reggae was still an enigma. It was a hotchpotch mix of differing styles, due to it being an amalgam of their hits through the years plus some new recordings.

Justin Hinds (Horace Andy’s cousin) was another young out-of-town music fan who sought fame on the Kingston music scene, but his heart was always in the countryside where he came from. This showed in his 1971 song Botheration, in which he clearly elucidates the frustrations of city life from his viewpoint as a grounded countryman. He was a deeply spiritual person who would later convert to Rastafarianism and his work was marked by references to proverbs and fables, hoping to pass on the lessons he had learned in his life through his songs.

He was blessed with an appealing voice too and started a singing group with his school friends Dennis Sinclair and Junior Dixon in Steer Town. In 1963 Hinds and the Dominoes (the name coming from their mutual admiration for US R&B star Fats Domino) set off to find their fortune in the big city. Hinds’ talents in song-writing would prove invaluable to the band in their adventures in Kingston. There were many vocal trios trying for fame in the world of Ska, but not many with a built-in hit writing machine.

After an initial knockback from Coxsone Dodd, a friend with connections got them an audition with Dodd’s rival Duke Reid. The three impressed the Duke and with their first recording for his Treasure Isle label they made the Ska classic Carry Go Bring Home. This set the trio on a path of success, but as the Jamaica record business was far more geared towards 45s at this time, they never got to cut a long playing record on Duke’s watch. The run of hits that continued through the changes from Rocksteady, to original Reggae right through to Roots in the mid-70s, did not make any difference.

As the 70s wore on, the music scene was changing though and there was a demand for a Justin Hinds And The Dominoes LP. Weakened by ill health, Reid sold his music business over to Sonia Pottinger. She oversaw some new sessions and these, jammed together with some of Hinds and the Dominoes biggest hits, meant enough material was available to bundled together for an LP.

Unsurprisingly the album itself is, it has to be said, a bit strange. Even the title is a little rum, you would think from that it was made for the foreign market, but was only released in Jamaica. As a listening experience, From Jamaica With Reggae a little odd too as its running order places songs side by side that were as much as twelve years apart in vintage. You could have something from the early Ska era like Carry Go Bring Home followed by a new recording with a “Modern” Reggae sound like Whatever You Need, then back to the Rocksteady sound of Here I Stand and that’s just the first three tracks! They are all quality recordings, but it is a little disconcerting, all the leaps backwards and forwards through time.

On the positive side, the newer material showed that Hinds was still a match for most, with the sunny, lazy sound of mid-70s JA perfectly evoked on You Don’t Know and Sinners (Where You Gonna Hide). Despite the feel-good sound Justin always had a message, a stern one for the forces of oppression on the former. In contrast, Drink Milk is a direct hit from the Reggae of 1969, a call to action by any other name and a sparky and exciting song. The Little You Have is touching and soulful and Hey Mama (AKA Cock Mouth Kill Cock – nothing dirty about this one, being basically “watch what you say”) a fine cut from 71. Though the album naturally lacks cohesion, it contains a lot to love, as do the 14 bonus tracks.

Those extras presented here mean finally From Jamaica With Reggae becomes the Greatest Hits of Justin Hinds and the Dominoes it was perhaps meant to be. Rub Up Push Up again is not quite the saucy number I originally took it for, being really just the song of a lover wronged. It is a brilliant piece of original Ska with the Jazz influence in the horn section and a strong rhythm. The Dominoes score again on that count with Mother Banner and Peace And Love, which has a noise on it that sounds like someone playing the spoons! I know it isn’t, but whatever it is, it really works.

Sufferation 1969 and the aforementioned Botheration show how easily Hinds and the Dominoes changed over from Rocksteady to Reggae and how convincing they were when they did. Though the tunes were great the words were always worth hearing too. Hinds shows how he kept evolving with two late 70s tracks backed by the crack Channel One outfit the Revolutionaries, Rig-Ma-Roe Game and Wipe Your Weeping Eyes. A couple of excellent pieces of Reggae for the time that could compare with Lee Perry-produced cuts of roundabout the same era for atmosphere, musicianship and vocal skill. It’s great listening and still would pack the dancefloors at a Reggae Revival show. Altogether this adds up to sonic history of the evolution of Reggae from 1964 to 1978 in miniature, one band, form.

Hinds carried on working after this album was released and recorded widely until the mid-80s. He slowed down from then on, still setting down tracks in the studio more occasionally (once with Keith Richards producing) and playing live. Sadly he passed away in 2005 at the age of 62 having made a big mark on Reggae music in Jamaican almost since its inception.

Though the original album will always be a strange one, the music contained on it and the bonus tracks included here are mostly very good indeed. Justin Hinds and the Dominoes managed to safely negotiate all of the fads that the Kingston music scene could throw at them and came up trumps with some cracking sounds with thought-provoking lyrics. At their best, they measured up well to most anyone who ever showed up at Duke Reid’s door and that’s taking in a lot of talent. Another ace whipped from the sleeve of Doctor Bird, listen to this collection, its good for your soul.

Bob Marley & The Wailers - Nash & Sims Demo 1968


In late 1967, Bunny was arrested for possession of marijuana and sent to jail for 14 months. Shortly after, in early 1968, Peter Tosh also went behind bars, being arrested at an anti-Rhodesian rally for singer / producer Prince Buster.Bob also did not escape the bars. Also in 1968, Bob was driving his newly acquired second-hand Hillman Minx in Kingston when he let his passenger, Mortimer Planner, take control of the direction. Planner did not have a driver's license, so when they were stopped by the police, they were both arrested and spent the night in jail.
It was Mortimer Planner who introduced Bob to Danny Sims, a Jamaican based American who has promoted concerts throughout the Caribbean. Sims was also the manager of Johnny Nash, an expressive force, a Texan singer who had benefited from several hit singles in the States. Both Sims and Nash were highly impressed with Bob's songs and he persuaded himself to sign an editorial with the company of Sims, Cayman Music.
Sims also allowed the Wailers to record freely with other producers, giving them the best of both worlds - if their records could not sell, they can always count on the Sims money. The Wailers will record a series of demo tapes for Sims, remaking versions of "Put It On," "Nice Time," and even a version of "I'm Still Waiting," rephrased as "I'm Still Wailing '".
By the time the Wailers consisted of Bob, Peter and Bunny, who had just been released from Richmond Prison Farm. Rita would add harmonies to the recordings made for the Sims, but none of these demos were released until that time. In the early spring of 1969, the Wailers, produced by Leslie Kong, who had already produced Bob on their first recordings, Beverleys Records and released the Jamaican No. 1 hit in Britain along with Desmond Dekker's 'Israelites'
