Skatalites - Ball "O" Fire / Can't Go On - Island WI 207

Skatalites

Ball "O" Fire / Can't Go On

Island : WI 207 (45s)

Condition! Condition! Condition!

Besides being one of this iconic gathering's lesser encountered British releases, this 3 prong center copy has two squeaky clean labels, and full gloss vinyl revealing just a few soft sleeve contact blemishes.

So now hear another killer "East Of Suez" influenced semi-instrumental drenched in additive rhythms and inspirational instrument manipulation from the greatest set of Jamaican musicians ever assembled...both sides give up brilliant irresistible crossover SKA, just as it enters the Rock Steady stage of the Island's musical development. Showcasing brilliant solo displays from the saxophone, the trumpet, giving pause from the avalanche of the all-for-one delivery of everything the group has in their locker.

"Ball "O" Fire" is a monumental mid-60's recording and so hard to acquire in clean condition, pleasingly free of any ticks and pop, to acquire a finer copy would be beyond challenging.

Errol Dunkley - I'm Coming Home / I'm No The man For You - Amalgamated AMG 805

Errol Dunkley

I'm Coming Home / I'm No The man For You

Amalgamated : AMG 805 (45s)

All the way from 32 Beeston Street, Kingston, Jamaica to the streets of London, comes this 1968 double helping of pleading Rocksteady from the desks of Joe Gibbs, Lee Perry and Bunny Lee who collaborate to activate this 17 year old's amazing vocal in the best possible light, with two imploring Soulful mid-tempo, that burrow themselves right under your skin.

This talented youngster's voice carries the power to focus your mind, with it's purity and innocence, saturated in heartfelt sincerity. Benefitting by being backed up by the precise guitar pulses of Lyn Taitt & The Jets, the seamless flow pulls you in, which ever side you choose to play; just the ideal conveyor of this young man's "soul".

The a-side is great, but I think the flipside is bordering on brilliance as its haunting qualities stay with you long after the recorded has finished.

Click the soundfile and allow Errol to change your mood with his completely unashamedly begging style...

so captivating..

Ken Parker - My Whole World Is Falling Down / Choking Kind - Bamboo BAM1

Ken Parker

My Whole World Is Falling Down / Choking Kind

Bamboo : BAM1 (45s)

The record that launched the UK Bambo label showcases Clement Dodd's admiration for the music of Memphis. Evident yet again, when he revamps William Bell's "My Whole World Is Falling Down" in a wholly sympathetic manner, elevating it up to equal standing with the original.

Coxsone goes for a vibrant dance session, but keeping those shrill girl group choruses and the beseeching delivery, with Ken Parker's falsetto voice just perfect for this despairing song. Coxsone yet again covers a great Soul song and makes it every note as enthralling. A feat they repeat on the flipside when the Coxsone team deconstruct Joe Simon's timeless classic ballad "Choking Kind"

Once more they opt to up the pace, adding stabbing horns, relentless bongos patting-out the dance rhythms. It works so well, exactly what you'd expect from a Coxsone prodution, drive, imagination and skill.

Killer double sider, that is not easy to acquire with play perfect vinyl.
