Pumping In
Cat: HSRSS 004. Rel: 15 Jul 20
Classics/Ska
  1. Pumping In (2:31)
  2. Knock On Wood (2:37)
Review: For the latest volume in their ongoing "Reggae Cut Loud" series of seven-inch singles, Harlem Shuffle Records have gathered together two suitably rare gems from the undisputed king of rocksteady, Alton Ellis, neither of which have previously featured on a "45". A-side "Pumping In", an early rocksteady treat, is rich in R&B style guitar riffs, warm bass and an echo-laden vocal from Ellis. It was recorded in 1970 but for one reason or another only surfaced a few years ago. Flipside "Knock On Wood", a cover of the Eddie Floyd soul favourite, was recorded a number of times by Ellis; this version is the superior 1972 Joe Gibbs take, which boasts some superb Hammond organ sounds and a defiantly dub-wise reggae riddim. It's absolutely essential.

Hold Down
Hold Down (7")
Cat: HSRSS 003. Rel: 26 Jun 20
Classics/Ska
  1. Hold Down (2:50)
  2. Nice Nice (2:47)
Review: The Kingstonians were a relatively short-lived Jamaican band whose greatest work was produced by Derek Harriott between 1968 and '70. It was at the tail end of this period that they recorded their sole album, "Sufferer", an early reggae classic featuring a swathe of sought-after cuts. It's from that set that these two tracks are taken. For the record, both have appeared on 7" singles before, but are so hard to find that collectors are willing to spend up to 500 Euros to find original copies. A-side "Hold Down" is particularly potent, with the vocal trio's fuzzy vocals rising above a killer early reggae rhythm much in Hammond organ stabs, warm bass and clipped guitars. "Nice, Nice" meanwhile is a more up-tempo affair that gives a little more prominence to a typical early reggae guitar riff. Together the two tracks make for a suitably scintillating package.

Ain't That Terrible (Record Store Day 2020)
Cat: HSKTF 001. Rel: 07 Sep 20
Funk/Reissues
  1. Ain't That Terrible (2:32)
  2. A Change Is Gonna Come (3:42)
Review: Northern Soul diggers have spent many frustrating hours trying to track down copies of Roy Redmond's notoriously hard to find 1967 single 'Ain't That Terrible', which was initially released on cult label Loma. Listening to this timely and much-needed Record Store Day 2020 reissue, it's easy to see why. The track is exactly the kind of surging, stomping, up-tempo number that makes Northern Soul dancefloors go crazy, all topped off by an excitedly rousing lead vocal from Redmond. Over on the flip you'll find original B-side 'A Change Is Gonna Come', a lusciously arranged, performed and produced version of the Sam Cooke favourite smothered in melancholic horns, jazzy guitars and sustained organ chords.

These Boots Are Made For Walking
Cat: HSRSS 0005. Rel: 18 Dec 20
Classics/Ska
  1. These Boots Are Made For Walking (2:54)
  2. That's Nice (2:58)
Review: Under the alternative name The Bees, Syramip were one of the UK's first proper reggae groups. In 1969, they signed to Trojan and released their first album, Syramip Moonstomp, a year later. It's from that album that the lead cut on this essential Harlem Shuffle Records release is taken. A-side 'These Boots Are Made For Walking' is a raucous, ska-influenced rendition of the now much-covered Lee Hazlewood song first recorded by Nancy Sinatra in 1966. It's a fiery and forthright cover and one guaranteed to put smiles on faces. Over on side B you'll find 'That's Nice', a sweeter, slower and more laidback reggae ballad recorded during the Syramip Moonstomp sessions, but previously only available on later CD compilations.

  14. Audrey - "You'll Loose A Good Thing" (2:41)
Review: Since launching late last year, Harlem Shuffle Records has reissued a string of killer reggae recordings from the 1960s and 70's. Here the imprint offers up its first compilation, a 14-track selection of early reggae, dub and rocksteady hand-picked from the vaults of such legendary labels as Black Swan, Blue Cat, Duke, Doctor Bird, High Note and Trojan. It's a fine and hugely entertaining collection all told, with highlights including the easy, laidback skank of Stranger & Patsy's 'Tell it to Me', the trumpet-laden instrumental shuffle of 'Walk With Des' by Des All Stars, the Hammond-powered dancefloor heaviness of Clancy Collins' 'Brother Moses' and the prototype dub brilliance of 'Black Out' by the Hardy Boys.
