NEW RELEASES - NOVEMBER 2010
SCION SUCCESS - JAH IS MY HERO
JUG HEAD - JOYCE GONE / DUB
All records are manufactured in the USA using high quality virgin vinyl.
Hyman "Jah Life" Wright's DUB IRATOR label returns with two of the most hard to find and killer tunes from his catalog. Scion Success' "Jah Is My Hero" was originally released in 1991 on a Jah Life 12" in New York, and is one of the ruffest digital roots tunes we've heard. On the flip side, from the mid 1980's, is "Joyce Gone" by Jug Head. Originally released during the mid 80's in NY on a Dub Irator 12", this is one of the heaviest songs of lost love, a slow and bottom heavy rhythm with great synths, followed by a hard dub cut. Please note, the Scion Success tune is vocal only, as on the original release.
DAVE ROBINSON - HAVE TO GO THRU / VEX VERSION 12"
JEWELS - LOVE & LIVITY / DUB 7"
JEWELS - SLAVE TRADE / DUB 7"
Round Two of Leggo Sounds releases!
From 1979, two of our all-time favorite roots harmony tunes, both from The Jewels. "Slave Trade" and "Love and Livity" were both originally released on Jamaican seven-inch, on Leggo's Cash & Carry label, and distributed from his former Orange St. record shop of the same name. Both tunes stand near the top of the heap for hard roots harmony, no small feat. Next, on 12" we have Dave Robinson's massive tune on Leggo's awesome lick of the tempo riddim. In 1985, as the original tempo riddim was booming up the scene, Leggo was moving back and forth between his Orange Street, Kingston homebase and the Bronx, NYC. In this time he released a few tunes only in NYC, and only on 12" disco, where the format was already long-favored. Among them was this, a wicked lick of the ruling tempo riddim, huge bass and fantastic instrumentation, again arranged by Leggo's cohort Flabba Holt, and voiced by veteran rootsman Dave Robinson. A big booming vocal and the deep dub, titled "Vex."
