Lloyd & Glen That Girl / You Got Me Going This essential double sider was first released in 1967 on Crystal Records, the Jamaican record label owned by the famed producer Derrick Harriott. Derrick produced both of these great songs. The single was also released on the Coxsone label in the U.K. the same year. This single has never been repressed since. It is impossible to find in listenable condition and is very much in demand. The A side That Girl” is an instant Reggay scorcher with a cracking rhythm and fun lyrics. As ever with Lloyd & Glen, it showcases outstanding vocals from the duo along with a spotless production from Derrick Harriott. On the B side, a gorgeous love song from Lloyd & Glen. Poignant vocals from the duo are perfectlycomplemented by a big horns section. It is in fact as good as the A side. Harlem Shuffle 7" Pre-Order

Ghetto Priest Hercules EP Recorded at ‘The House of IMIZWA’ studios, reggae artist and Asian Dub Foundation frontman Ghetto Priest teams up with Carlton ‘Bubbler’ Ogilvie to produce and unleash his fresh reggae take of the mighty Aaron Neville’s iconic 1973 rare groove classic ‘Hercules’. With Mr Ogilvie on keyboards, Ital Horns on brass duties Greg Blackman on backing vocals and Crucial Tony on guitar, Ghetto’s beautifully executed, deft vocals ride over a rock solid riddim - the original version taken from Ghetto’s forthcoming ‘Big People Music’ LP. You’ll hear this blasting out of low rider windows rolled down in the summer heat and radios across the globe in 2021 and beyond. Ashley Beedle and Darren Morris take the North Street West ‘HOLYVOODOU’ remix on a musical detour through hidden Louisiana backwaters to visit a ‘vaudou’ priestess to collect some gris gris and onward to New Orleans to meet Doctor John at the Mardi Gras. Leaning heavily towards the Meters school of phrasing, the North Street West version is infused with layers of eloquent keyboards, righteous handclapping, chicken bones and a generous helping of Bayou Funk, making a connection to the Aaron Neville original. A North Street West Dub and Radio Edit are available as part of the digital package. Ramrock 7"

Phillis Dillon One Life To Live As the only album ever released by the leading female singer of the entire rocksteady movement, One Life to Live is a crucial document of the era and genre; that it also happens to be a fantastic record is just gravy! Dillon spent her entire career recording for Duke Reid’s Treasure Isle imprint; though One Life to Live was released in 1972, it is something of a compilation, including material recorded through 1968 to 1972. And as such, it features a bunch of her solo hits, including “Long Time No Nice Time,” “We Belong Together,” and the title tune. But to American ears, her interpretations of such rock warhorses as George Harrison’s “Something” and Stephen Stills’ “Love the One You’re With” may stand out the most; in her light, rocksteady style laced with rock and pop, she truly makes these songs her own. For this firstever Stateside vinyl reissue, we have remastered this seminal album to make it sound better than it ever has. Real Gone Music LP
Cambodia / Phnom Penh Reggae Dub Addiction / Vibratone DUB ADDICTION - Founded in the tropical heat of Cambodia's capital Phnom Penh in 2011 by Sebastien Adnot and Jan Mueller (AKA Professor Kinski), Dub Addiction features a combination of Cambodian, French, German and Nigerian members. They quickly captured the hearts of local Cambodians and Western expats in a beat. Cambodian national and vocalist, toaster DJ Khla, is a political activist and is now living in exile in Europe after having fled his country because of military pressure on him and his family. He was able to escape Cambodia while on tour with Dub Addiction in Denmark. Their fusion of reggae combined with traditional Cambodian instruments like tro (violin), chapey (traditional Cambodian string instrument) and Roneat (xylophone), along with the toasting of Cambodian vocalists DJ Khla (Nhem Palla), MC Curly (Kosal Dang) and a variety of traditional female vocalists and international MCs creates a very unique blend. After all, though South-East Asia and The Caribbean might be far apart on the map, they both get light from one sun. DNA Records 7"
