Israel Vibration “Pretty Woman” (Apple Gabriel) RAS 7″ Vinyl (This is the very last single that Apple recorded with Israel Vibration. Jim Fox told me that it was a particularly difficult song to record because of the several tempo changes.
Hugh Mundell ”Jah Fire Will Be Burning”/”Version” 7″ Vinyl (Fatman). Revelation-style doom, gloom, and dread! One of Mundell’s masterpieces.
Junior Reid “Shack-A-Lack” (Jammys) Original Press 7″ Vinyl. One of Reid’s most well-known records. Issued on the Jammy’s label. Pure fyah over the “World-A-Reggae” riddim, the very same riddim featured in Damian Marley’s “Welcome to Jamrock”.”
Black Uhuru ”Wood For My Fire” / “Version” 7 inch (24.96). Rare Black Uhuru tune issued on the DEB (Dennis Emmanuel Brown) label out of the UK.
Dennis Brown “My Time” / “Version” (Observer) [24.96-FLAC]. Nothing stands out quite like an Observer label.
“Java” (Impact) Orfiginal Press 1971. The original issued by Clive Chin on the Impact label with Augustus Pablo’s name misspelled as “Agustus.”
What we have here is Damian Marley and Nas performing on their Distant Relatives tour at The Roxy in Los Angeles on May 20, 2010 backed by DJ Cut Chemist of the Jurassic 5. What do we get? A rabid mix of hip-hop and reggae that any fan of music can vibe to. “Can you feel the (un)realness?”
