The 12” features on one side Mungo’s Hi Fi’s original dubby smasher, which has been one of their most requested tracks since they started playing it out on dubplate.

Bob Marley & The Wailers KAYA 40 2018 marks the 40th Anniversary of Bob Marley & The Wailers’ KAYA. Recorded in part during Marley’s and the band’s 1977 exile in London, KAYA is very much the sibling record to EXODUS. Fittingly, as Ziggy Marley revisited the original session recordings for last year’s EXODUS 40 celebration, this year sibling Stephen Marley revisits the original session recordings to commemorate KAYA, bringing a fresh perspective to this suite that’s quietly referred to as the ‘Peace Treaty’ album.

Toots & The Maytals Funky Kingston [Music On Vinyl] LP on 180g black vinyl. By 1975, rock audiences were finally getting heavily into reggae, thanks to the success of Bob Marley's first two albums and Jimmy Cliff's soundtrack for The Harder They Come. Funky Kingston, a collection of early 1970s Maytals singles, was released to capitalise on the newfound demand for Jamaican sounds, and it did not disappoint - nor will it disappoint anyone who comes across it today. With Toots Hibbert's gritty vocals at the fore, this is the closest reggae ever got to American soul music. If sublimely funky tracks such as Time Tough, Got To Be There and Pressure Drop don't make you smile, then their ganja-laced cover of John Denver's Country Roads (complete with a shout-out to West Jamaica) should definitely do the trick.
