LLOYD CHARMERS - The Best of Lloyd Charmers (2016)

 After a successful career as a vocalist in the Charmers and Uniques vocal groups, Lloyd 'Charmers' Tyrell made his mark as one of Jamaica's most influential record producers. From 1969 to 1973, he produced and released an array of local hits on his Splash Records label, featuring himself along with some of the island's leading performers, most notably Ken Boothe, Bob Andy and BB Seaton. The best of these works were subsequently gathered on the two Trojan vinyl LPs that comprise this deluxe 2CD set: 'The Best Of Lloyd Charmers' and 'Lloyd Charmers In Session'. First issued in 1973 and 1974, respectively, these two highly collectable albums both finally make their CD debut on this stunning 2CD set. Featuring numerous tracks new to CD, this long overdue anthology of Lloyd Charmers' early output adeptly demonstrates why he is still widely regarded as one of the most capable and original talents Jamaica has ever produced.

Keith Hudson - Tuff Gong Encounter

Keith Hudson - Tuff Gong Encounter

Languishing in the vaults for over thirty years, here are the six tracks that the legendary Keith Hudson recorded at Tuff Gong with the Wailers rhythm section Carlton and Family Man Barrett on drums and bass respectively.  These tracks were intended for an album that never came as Hudson succumbed to cancer and passed away in November 1984.  The Barrett brothers were augmented by fellow Wailers Junior Marvin on guitar and Tyrone Downie on keys.  The tracks were engineered at Tuff Gong at the time by Oswald Palmer and have been sympathetically mixed prior to this release by King Jammy, who has also mixed dubwise variations for each track.  Its a fascinating album, the Wailers sound is intact and evocative and Hudson's songs are full of typically incisive lyrical couplets, his unique voice emerging from the years in obscurity with vivid life.  The story is told in the detailed booklet notes by one Vincent Ellis.  A fitting and deserved epitaph for the great Keith Hudson.

Track Listing:

1. I Know My Rights
2. White Africa
3. Run Run Run
4. Rebel Rasta
5. Starlight
6. I Know My Rights (Version 2)
7. Rites Of Dub
8. Dub Africa
9. Run The Version
10. Rasta Dub
11. Star Dub
12. Rites Of Version

Bunny Lee's Kingston Flying Cymbals: Dubbing With the Flying Cymbals Sound 1974-1979

Bunny Lee's flying cymbals or flyers rhythms dominated the dancehalls and the charts in 1974 and 1975. The style, based on Philadelphia disco and featuring the sound of an open and closed hi-hat, was not necessarily novel, but Lee's use of a number of different elements most certainly was. Johnny Clarke's 1975 interpretation of Earl Zero's "None Shall Escape the Judgement" opened the floodgates for the flyers style. The story had begun the previous year with Lowell "Sly" Dunbar: "Sly played the flying cymbals first... I said to Sly, 'You played it on the Delroy Wilson tune for Channel One named 'It's a Shame' and Sly played it before that with Skin, Flesh & Bones on 'Here I Am Baby (Come and Take Me),' the Al Green tune... with the 'tsk, tsk, tsk' sound on the hi-hat, I named it flyers, but they didn't know what flyers was!" --Lee. Before too long, "every tune we put out we put the rhythm behind it," and every Kingston producer followed suit with their own variations of Striker's flying cymbals rhythms...

Track list :

1. This A The Best Version
2. Believe In Dub
3. Botheration Dub
4. Feel So Good Dub
5. General Dub
6. Get Ready For The Master Dub
7. A Moving Version
8. God Father Dub
9. Behold Dis Ya Dub Of Class
10. Sunny Dub
11. Judah Dub
12. Another Version
13. Talkative Dub
14. Revenge Of The Flying Cymbals

16. Cathy’s Clown
17. Tender Love 
 By Jo-Ann Greene
Former Inspiration Trevor Shaw struck off on his own in 1971, linking up with producer Clive Chin and unleashing a steady stream of solo singles under the alias Jimmy London. "Bridge Over Troubled Water" was one of his first, a splendidly reggae-fied cover of the Simon & Garfunkel classic. The tempo may be perky, the riffing bright and brash, but the backing is given serious gravitas by the elegant trombone solos that swell majestically across the grooves. London approaches the song with the same intensity, delivering up the lyrics with poise and utter sincerity, his sweet tones promising deliverance with almost religious fervor, creating an aura that hovers close to that of a cathedral. Not your typical early reggae cover by any stretch of the imagination, and thus it's no wonder the single proved popular in the U.K., and was included within the Trojan label's Tighten Up series.

Tommy McCook - Top Secret

 Tracklist :
Green Mango
Top Secret
Wild Bunch
Green Apple
Jungle Skank
West Street Special
Big Bad & Bold
Midnight Time
Mistic Mood
Walk On The Side *
Hot Shot *
Watch This Music *
Sweet Soul Special *
 By Rick Anderson
This reissue is being marketed as a ska classic, which is understandable since Tommy McCook was a charter member of the Skatalites and, therefore, one of the primary architects of the ska sound. However, Top Secret is actually more of a document of the rocksteady period, when the galloping tempos of ska were slowing and the rhythm was congealing into the elastic groove that would slow even further over the next couple of years, until it settled into the one-drop beat that characterized early reggae. Accompanied by such top-flight musicians as drummer Lloyd Knibbs, guitarist Jah Jerry, bassist Lloyd Brevett, and organist Jackie Mittoo, McCook recorded these brilliant sides at Duke Reid's Treasure Isle studio in 1969; the album has been out of print for years and is here reissued with four previously unreleased bonus tracks. The sound quality is better than you'd have any right to expect, and the musical quality is so consistently high that it's a little bit difficult to pick out highlight tracks -- though the proto-reggae strut of "Jungle Skank" is particularly nice, as are the twin saxophone harmonies on "Hot Shot." Highly recommended.

Bunny Striker Lee & Friends - Next Cut! Dub Plates, Rare Sides & Unreleased Cuts

Great compilation of rare and unreleased mid to late seventies Striker Lee material containing some tuff dub mixes of otherwise familiar material.  Highlights include Barrington Spence's Blood Of Babylon, previously only issued as a track featuring I Roy on his 1975 Virgin release Crisis Time, a different take of Wayne Jarrett's ultra heavy Satta Dread and Linval Thompson's Big Big Girl / Ethiopian Girl featuring studio chat and false starts, it's monumental rhythm also used for Tommy McCook's Death Trap which appears here with the "steppers" drum overdub, originally issued as a track on one of McCook's mid-seventies instrumental LP's.  Lee's productions are indeed ubiquitous yet thi album does indeed offer something fresh to even the most jaded of listeners.

Blandas Y Tlayudas Band (ByT Band)

Que gusto escribir de nuevo mis estimados Carnalitos, en esta ocasión les tengo algo que realmente me tiene muy emocionado, y es que el buen amigo JAZZYNG BOO nos comparte, como siempre, un material excepcional para poder deleitar nuestros oídos, y lo mejor de todo esto es que estamos hablando de una banda NACIONAL, si señores, una agrupación originaria de la ya de por si bella Oaxaca. Les estoy hablando nada más y nada menos que de BLANDAS Y TLAYUDAS BAND (ByT Band).

ByT Band se forma en Oaxaca de Juàrez a finales del año 2011, pero fue hasta principios del año 2012 en que finalmente se concretara la alineación de músicos que diera frutos para poder gravar su primer material discográfico, mismo que viera la luz en Octubre del mismo año y que tiene el mérito de haber sido concebido de forma 100% independiente. Llama baste la atención de esta que fuese su primera producción la presentación con lo cual lanzan este primer material, y es que su portada está hecha con Palma tejida, elaborada por las manos artesanas de Santo Domingo barrio Bajo, Etla, Oaxaca, dándole así desde la primera vista esa identidad apegada a las costumbres y formas sociales con las que están cargados todos los temas de esta producción.

ByT Band se definen como un "combo instrumental, que retoma, desde su nombre, la bondad del alimento por excelencia de los mexicanos (Blandas y Tlayudas). Adopta ritmos caribeños y los recrea desde su mundo, desde su cultura, desde su particular y sensible percepción" y así mismo nos dan a conocer que "Su “comentario social” no está en las letras, sino en las distintas formas de vincularse con comunidades, el contacto con espacios públicos hace que su música cambie, se vuelva experimental en el sentido de ser más maleable, menos apegada al código de un género musical.", cuestión que me queda bastante clara al saber que la banda no solo se enfoca en realizar actividades enfocadas al mundo artístico, sino que también  se entremezclan bastante bien con los aspectos sociales (tales como creación de campañas en pro de los animales en situación de calle, recolección, reparación  y donación de bicicletas a niños en zonas marginadas, etc.).

Dentro de su carrera han tenido oportunidad de participar en una serie importante de eventos y logrado compartir escenario con bandas como Mayd Hubb (Francia), Gondwana (Chile) Adhesivo (El Salvador), Hypnotic Brass Ensemble (EUA) y con Los Aguas Aguas (Veracruz. México), entre muchas más.

De su repertorio musical que les puedo decir, he quedado encantado escuchando Rock Steady, Ska Jazz y sonidos llenos de intensidad y creatividad, escuchen los temas y deléitense.

"Countless incredible records were made in Kingston between 1968 and 1971 that has never been able to lose the stigma of being described as ‘Skinhead Reggae’ but in Jamaica the term never meant anything. However Bunny Lee’s Aggro Sound’s both at home and away. They were tougher then tough, rougher then rough, kicked like a ‘bovver’ boot and were sharper then a razor cut trim. Raw, pure and undiluted every time...some even troubled the UK national charts.. To say the man and his music dominated at the time would be a complete understatement. ‘Striker’ was everywhere...travelling between Kingston, where he opened his Agro Sounds record shop at 101 Orange Street and London where he set up his Unity label with the Palmer Brothers for the exclusive release of his productions and his Jackpot subsidiaries with both Trojan and Pama records. Ubiquitous does not start to come into it. We sincerely hope that this compilation helps to point you in the direction of some of the best music from this often overlooked period from one of the greatest producers EVER! ‘The Aggro Man’ himself Bunny Lee."

Byron Lee—

IN 1964, at the height of the ska craze, Edward Seaga, Jamaica’s minister of social welfare and economic development, invited Byron Lee and the Dragonaires (BL&D) to his West Kingston constituency to revel in a sound that was rocking Kingston’s clubs.

“Byron, myself and Ken Lazarus went down there and he (Seaga) said ‘listen to this’. We heard these guys making amazing music,” recalled BL&D lead singer Keith Lyn.

That “amazing music” was ska. The West Kingston trip inspired Lazarus and Lyn to write Jamaican Ska, which remains one of the band’s biggest hits.

It is one of 20 songs on Uptown Top Ranking, an album to be released June 9 by VP Records. The set revisits some of BL&D’s ska, rocksteady and reggae recordings.

Because of its longstanding ties to Carnival in the Eastern Caribbean, the band is usually associated with calypso and soca, sounds synonymous with that region.

But on Uptown Top Ranking, Lee and the Dragonaires show their versatility with Dumplings (their first hit song), Jamaican Ska, Soul Ska, Rocksteady, Hot Reggay and Don’t Call me Nigger, Whitey.

As the album’s title suggests, BL&D were an uptown band whose audience was distinctly middle-class. Because of that tag, Lyn believes they never got their due from the masses, especially as a ska act.

“Jamaican Ska was the first original ska hit, but we were never popular with the downtown crowd as they called them, so we never really got that respect,” he said.

To help promote the ska beat and dance, Seaga took BL&D and a teenaged Jimmy Cliff to the World’s Fair in New York City in 1964.


Critics argued that The Skatalites, ska’s greatest exponents, should have made the trip.

Lee formed the Dragonaires at St George’s College in the early 1950s. They made their name as a show band before hitting with the

Seaga-produced Dumplings in 1959.

The band enjoyed a chart revival during the 1980s when Lee launched the successful Jamaica Carnival. Songs like Tiney Winey and Dancehall Soca helped introduce BL&D to a new generation.

Lee died in November 2008 at age 73.

Clancy Eccles - Freedom The Anthology

Clancy Eccles - Libertad: The Anthologia 1967-1973. Clancy Eccles fue uno de los principales productores de rocksteady, y pronto se convirtió en el reggae. Además de ser un cantante y productor consumado, Eccles tenía convicciones políticas profundas en el poder curativo del socialismo, y practicó lo que predicaba, prestando su voz a la causa, tanto político como interpersonal. Eccles ayudó Lee "Scratch" Perry establer su estudio e hizo todo lo que pudo para ayudar a sus compañeros músicos jamaicanos ganan prominencia durante los años 70. Parece ser que también acuñó el término "Reggae" del término del argot "streggae", que se refería a una señora de fácil reputación. Esta antología es de excelencia recopilando sus mejores temas y colaboraciones de varias agrupaciones en la época dorada de Jamaica.
 Clancy Eccles - Freedom: The Anthology 1967-73. Clancy Eccles was one of the major producers of rocksteady, the Jamaican music style that built on ska and soon developed into reggae. Besides being an accomplished singer and producer, Eccles had deep political beliefs in the healing power of socialism, and he practiced what he preached, lending his voice to the cause, both political and interpersonal. Eccles helped Lee "Scratch" Perry set up his studio and did everything he could to help his fellow Jamaican musicians gain prominence during the 70s. He also apparently coined the term "reggae" from the slang term "streggae," which referred to a lady of easy reputation. This anthology, released by the amazing Trojan label, is uniformly excellent.
