Tune Up Ska (reissue)
  1. Tune Up Ska (3:16)
  2. Time Is Ska Tight (Aternative take) (3:53)
Review: While this record looks and sounds vintage - like the majority of Original Gravity's output - it is in fact a revivalist, turn-of-the-60s style ska production from Welwyn Garden City's Neil Anderson. A-side 'Tune Up Ska' is particularly potent, with Anderson and his studio musicians serving up a classic ska groove (think walking bass, up-tempo rhythm and blues drums and tight horn blasts), onto which a variety of fuzzy saxophone and organ solos are layered. Clubs may not be open right now, but when they do, we can see it lighting up ska-loving crowds. Over on the flip, Anderson and company turn their attention (sorry) to Booker T & The MG's cut 'Time is Tight', reinventing it as a boisterous, horn-heavy affair featuring some superb trumpet solos.

Take Me With You
Cat: HR7S 154. Rel: 20 Nov 20
  1. Take Me With You (3:25)
  2. Take Me With You (version) (3:30)
Review: With sunshine becoming a regular occurrence again just in time for summer, two of France's more soulful producers have decided to join forces and offer up something suitably warm and relaxing. With the assistance of vocalist Kahina Ouali, Blundetto and Booker Gee have recorded a killer, Hammond-laden version of Lyn Christopher classic "Take Me With You" that sits somewhere between the organs-and-lo-fi-drum machines flex of Timmy Thomas' "We Can't We Live Together" and the soulful reggae grooves of 1980s lovers rock. The fine A-side original mix, which boasts Ouali's full vocal, is our pick of the pair, though the flipside instrumental "Version" mix, in which Booker Gee gets busy on the organ, is also superb.

Pop Corn (7")
Cat: HR7S 187. Rel: 20 Nov 20
  1. Pop Corn (2:53)
  2. Granny Scratch Scratch (3:58)
Review: Contemporary Hammond B3 maestro Booker Gee (real name Guillaume Metenier) has delivered some seriously good slabs over the last couple of years, and this wholehearted tribute to the JB's could well be the best of the lot. 'Popcorn' is a sparse but seriously heavy deep funk cut, with Metenier's inspired Hammond licks and solos riding a sweaty, break-fuelled groove courtesy of acclaimed modern funk multi-instrumentalist Slikk Tim. Over on the flip, the French musician and producer gives his interpretation of Sound Dimension's 'Granny Snatch', delivering a cosmic funk take full of weighty bass, flanged guitars, jazzy solos and deliciously dubbed-out sounds. It's not quite as instantly accessible as 'Popcorn', but it is certainly equally as potent.

Out In The Rain
Cat: BB 104. Rel: 20 Nov 20
  1. Out In The Rain (3:50)
  2. Out In The Rain (version) (3:55)
Review: Guillaume Metenier is Booker Gee, a master edit maker and studio wizard who has made his name with some much wanted work on Lucien Entertainment as well as more than once on this label. His second release this month is a trip into the world of ska. 'Out In The Rain' is a perfect sweet spot between rolling reggae rhythms, warm organ chords and skipping kicks. The mood is sensuous and inviting as Gee blends sweet soul with playful funk. The version is only a subtle rework, resining plenty of the charm and allure of the original.

  1. Axumites (3:39)
  2. Axumites (dub) (3:37)
  3. Faith (3:49)
  4. Faith (dub) (3:49)
Review: On his previous releases as Booker Gee, Guillaume Metenier has employed his immaculate organ-playing skills over a range of killer funk and soul grooves. Here he flips the script, delivering atmospheric, fluid Hammond solos over some dub-wise reggae grooves played and produced by Spanish multi-instrumentalist Lone Ark (real name Roberto Sanchez). Both Metenier and Sanchez are in fine form on opener 'Auxmites', a bass-heavy head-nodder that sounds like Lee 'Scratch' Perry producing Jimmy Smith. 'Faith' is a little sunnier and warmer, with Metenier's solos working in perfect unison with Sanchez's glistening guitars, jangling pianos and skanking rhythm. Both cuts come accompanied by pleasingly spaced-out Dub revisions courtesy of Sanchez. Top stuff!

Short Break
Cat: FTR 029. Rel: 13 Oct 20
  1. Short Break (3:48)
  2. Revenge (3:17)
Review: Cosmic Shuffling is a Geneva based combo who distill funk, ska and soul into their own unique sound. They last appeared with double a side ska 7" single 'Eastern Ska' and got plenty of people in the game excited. Now they follow on with another winner that opens with some brilliantly instrumental work. 'Short Break' has natty little riffs and swaggering drums, with a playful lead that takes you back to the heat of a mid-60s Jamaica when rocksteady sounds were all the hype. A shuffling ska rework takes care of the reverse and takes off with great horns from a six-piece band.

Reggae Dynamite Vol 2
  1. Melbourne Douglas - "Rudy Skankin On The Moon" (3:14)
  2. The Regulators - "Caymanas Park Rocket" (2:30)
  3. Melbourne Douglas - "Rude Boy Don't Fight" (2:50)
  4. King Deadly - "Joshua A Mek Riddim Run" (2:46)
Review: Having already delivered a multi-artist EP of Reggae Dynamite earlier in the year, nostalgia-fired producer Neil Anderson serves up a speedy sequel on his popular Original Gravity label. Toaster Melbourne Douglas kicks things off with the ska-flavoured cheeriness of 'Rudy Skanking on the Moon', before returning later in the EP with slowed-down, rocksteady style reggae fuzziness of 'Rude Boy Don't Fight'. Elsewhere, label regulars (sorry) the Regulators deliver a high-tempo, Hammond-heavy instrumental workout (the excellent 'Caymanas Park Rocket'), while King Deadly layers languid organ solos over a more dub-wise groove on EP standout 'Joshua a Mek Riddim Run'.

  1. Groovin' (feat Jamie Allensworth) (3:11)
  2. Groovin' (instrumental) (2:57)
Review: Last December, Los Angeles combo Night Owls debuted on F Spot Records with a genuine 21st century rarity: a reggae-soul cover of Donny Hathaway's 'This Christmas', featuring lead vocals from the mighty Durand Jones. For their fourth single, they've decided to deliver another cover, this time of Young Rascals' cut 'Groovin'. Their sun-soaked, rocksteady style reggae take is apparently a homage to Willie Mitchell's cover (as sampled by Wu-Tang Clan), and features Jungle Fire man Jamie Allensworth singing majestically over a jaunty rhythm track rich in heady Hammond organ sounds and toasty bass. The band's brilliant arrangement and tight-but-languid performance naturally comes to the fore on the B-side Instrumental Mix.

Smells Like Teen Spirit (reissue) (7" limited to 200 copies 再出版) (1 per customer)
Cat: PARK 1033. Rel: 06 Nov 20
  1. Smells Like Teen Spirit (3:16)
  2. Summer Madness (4:01)
Review: Sometimes known as Inokasira Rangers, Park Rangers are a Japanese band who have spent much of the last decade releasing inspired but unlikely instrumental reggae covers of massive rock, pop and disco hits. This 7" single boasts two of their most popular covers, starting with a ridiculously cheery and almost hilariously cheeky version of Nirvana's 'Smells Like Teen Spirit'. Built around a 1960s style rocksteady riddim, it's instantly recognisable thanks to the band's choice to track the tune of Cobain's lead vocal (which naturally isn't present) with a Hammond organ solo. On the flip you'll find a deep reggae-disco cover of Kool & The Gang classic 'Summer Madness'; it's good, but nowhere near as fine as the surprising A-side.

Don't Look Back In Anger
Cat: OGR 800. Rel: 01 Dec 20
  1. Don't Look Back In Anger (4:47)
  2. Love Is A Treasure (5:40)
Review: 2020 has been a hugely productive year for Neil Anderson, the vintage reggae, ska and soul loving producer behind the Original Gravity label. Here he rounds off the year via a new single from The Regulators, one of the label's most reliable revivalist reggae combos. The headline attraction here is undoubtedly the skanking cover of Oasis's Britpop smash 'Don't Look Back in Anger', which we're sure will annoy Noel Gallagher no end. Built around a rocksteady groove replete with trademark organ sounds and lazy trumpet and trombone solos, it's a cheeky but brilliantly executed cover. Over on the flip they deliver a more faithful cover of Freddie McKay's 1967 rocksteady standard 'Love is a Treasure'. It's good, but sadly lacks the A-side's "wow" factor.

Review: After spending the last few years offering up occasional singles, Swiss Ska and rocksteady revivalists Cosmic Shuffling have finally readied their debut album, Magic Rocket Ship. It's a suitably fun and entertaining affair, with the Geneva-based combo delivering tracks that stick closely to the vintage ska and reggae blueprint while adding a little contemporary poise, polish and studio warmth. The plentiful highlights include righteous dancefloor ska outing 'Cat in the Hat', the Latin-jazz swing of 'Ann Bonny', the languid and skanking reggae haziness of 'Life Goes On' and the Latin-Ska fusion of 'Night in Palermo'.

Review: Chances are you've already got at least one Bob Marley album in your collection. Even if you own a few, we'd still recommend taking a close look at this quintuple-vinyl celebration of the reggae superstar's career and legacy. The first four slabs of wax take us on a whistle-stop tour of Marley's career with the wailers, moving from fuzzy, lo-fi early career recordings to the height of his worldwide fame in the late 1970s. While there are some classics missing, the compilers have made up for this by including harder-to-find instrumentals and dubs. The fifth disc showcases the strength of Marley's song writing skills by gathering together covers from the likes of Sly & Robbie (with disco star Gwen Guthrie on vocals), Black Uhuru, Max Romeo, Horace Andy and Gregory Isaacs.

Review: The legend of Bob Marley lives on and on and on. Especially when so much of his back catalogue's continually remastered, reissues, and re-cut, as this one has been, at half speed, for extra warm, deep and lavish playback sounds. This 75th anniversary edition of Catch A Fire reminds just how sweet a soul sound the band had, and just how emotive Bob's wailings could be. It was their first album released by Island Records and came about having been advanced money for it by producer Chris Blackwell. Peter Tosh wrote two of the cuts and Bob the rest, with the album's supporting tour really helping to establish their international reputation.

Review: This special 40th anniversary edition of More Specials has been mastered and cut at half-speed by Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios using the original production tapes. It also includes a 7" bonus that first came with the original album in 1980. Of course, the band remains a defining act of the 70s and 80s for all their work on Two Tone Records. Mixing the edgy of punk, the rolling rhythm of rocksteady and their own Special magic, they launched a whole ska revival and remain as popular today as ever.

Review: Jamaican reggae singer Peter Tosh lay down this lush dub record in 1978. It was his third studio album and rather amazingly it features Rolling Stones frontman and snake hipped icon Mick Jagger as guest vocalist on one song, while infamous party animal Keith Richards plays guitar on two tracks. The rhythm section wasn't too shabby either, as it featured Sly and Robbie, making this one of the most star studded reggae albums of all time. Musically it traverses the tempos with ease, from lazy sunny day walks in the park complete with bird calls to more earthy and authentic lovers riddims.

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.
