Legalize It - Various - Reggae-Reggae - Es Mucho Mas (Vinyl, LP)
The exquisite "It Pays," with its soaring falsetto harmonies; the gorgeous "Pretty Africa one of the first repatriation themed songs ; the infectious "Unity"; "Warlock," showcasing a seldom heard soul side to the artist; the funky "Reggae Recipe"; the simply sublime "Hippopotamus" -- so many unforgettable songs. All date from the period betweenand were produced to perfection by the late, great Lesley Kong. Dekker, blessed with one of the most distinctive voices around, also is one of the most emotive.
From vehemently demanding to achingly delicate, forceful to plaintive, the vocalist's performance was never less than scintillating.
Sadly, however, history has neglected the Aces, but their own extraordinary talents and sublime harmonies provided the backbone for all of these songs, and many, many more. The equal or betters of any of Jamaica's more celebrated vocal groups, luxuriate in the beauty of their singing, then just try to imagine these cuts without them. Inevitably, this compilation will merely whet your appetite for more of the same.
Which surely was the point. The consummate DJ meets the piano man with pizzazz, and the music world would never LP) the same again. Dave and Ansel Collins' "Double Barrel" and its follow-up "Monkey Spanner" almost single-handedly fired the later Two Tone explosion, with their "heavy, heavy monster sound".
Today that monstrous sound is normally dismissed as cheesy organ, but if cheese it is, it's the best brie around. Double Barrel was slapped together to cash in on the success of the pair's two singles, and occasionally the joins show, "Impossible Mission," for example, is a reorchestrated instrumental version of the title track.
And understandably, the vast majority of the dozen songs within are instrumentals, heavy on the Hammond, although "Elfrego Bacca" is merely heavy going, "I The Third" is heavy lifting "uh, uh, uh, ooh, ouch, aiya!
For LP) buyers, this is what they expected, moonstomping beats, bouncy keyboard melodies, and Dave Barker in best yipping style. But on two tracks, he opens his mouth, and instead of a howl, out come LP) sweetest vocals imaginable. Collins conjures up moody atmospheres in the background, while Barker is the personification of love gone wrong melancholy.
The dulcet backing vocals are provided by The Techniques, Barker, of course, was an occasional member of this great vocal group. Surprisingly, Double Barrel far exceeded expectations of even the most cynical purchaser, and cheesy organ never sounded so delicious.
Expanded into a trio, with LP) addition of seven year old singing sensation, Freddie McGregor, the Clarendonians became one of the most successful ska and early reggae groups in Jamaica. Their LP) break came when they were heard by influential record producer Coxsone Dodd. Dodd was so impressed, he signed them to his Studio One label and suggested that they add McGregor, who was so young that he had to stand on a beer crate to reach the microphone. In addition to crediting many of the group's records to the Clarendonians, Dodd attributed several of their recordings to Freddie and Fitzie, Freddie and Peter or to any of the three singers as soloists.
Following the Clarendonians's disbanding, Wilson continued to perform as a soloist. For a brief period, he worked with the Techniques, using the pseudonym King Shark. After releasing several singles produced by Dodd, McGregor achieved international success with the release of his debut album, Bobby Babylon, compiled of previously unreleased tracks.
Austin was far less successful, disappearing into oblivion shortly after the demise of the Clarendonians. The album is a mix of classic tunes and rhythms alongside super-rarities that were released in a dazzlingly complex web of Studio One labels and issues, deftly navigated with new sleeve notes from author and Studio One authority Rob Chapman. But enough with the chatter, just spin the platter - these tunes rule the town, hands down!
Ace dub LP from legendary selector, producer and arranger Tappa Zukie with a long lost relic from the archives. This one has been sitting on the shelves of Tappa's studio since the late 70's, a project he intigated himself in order to give some respect to horn players like Tommy McCook, Vin Gordon or Deadly "Headly" Bennett who were all too often dubbed out of existence by producers looking to use only the drum and bass sections of track for their dub versions.
The rhythm section of these track are still as strong as ever, but the horns are largely pushed up in the mix, adding large splashes of colour to what would often be abstracted rhythm and sound based trcks, making for a very refreshing and unique take on dub from way back when.
