Suedehead Reggae Classics 1971-1973
LP | 2018 | EU | Original (Kingston Sound)
14,99 €*
Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Reggae / Dancehall
The Suedehead sound of the early 70’s followed the Skinhead style of the 1968-70 period. The notable difference could be seen and heard, the sharp jerky upbeat rhythms were slowing down a notch to what we soon be calling that early Reggae Sound.The tougher harder look of the Rude Boy/Skinhead style was relaxing a little to almost meet with the less frantic rhythms to a more slowed down groove like sound. The hair got a little longer, going from a Mark 1 to a Feather Cut style.

LP | 1982 | UK | Reissue (Kingston Sound)
32,99 €*
Release:1982 / UK – Reissue
Genre:Reggae / Dancehall
By 1982 Dillinger was already firmly established as one of Jamaica’s leading deejays, with huge international hits such as “Cocaine In My Brain” and “CB 200? under his belt but in that year he really shone as a producer and released half a dozen 12” singles on the UK-based Oak Sound label featuring both himself as artist, together with the likes of Trinity, Al Campbell, Johnny Osbourne and Barrrington Levy. The standout release was the classic “Five Man Army” which was reissued for the first time by King Spinna Records in 2014. Dillinger also released one LP on Oak Sound, “Join The Queue”, the subject of this current reissue . For some reason the album seemed to disappear off the radar and is not particularly well known today. But it deserves to be heard by a wider audience as it’s on a par with his best work, and interestingly it captures the transition from the older Seventies roots style to the newer dancehall rhythms epitomised by the then in-demand studio outfit Roots Radics who contribute five of the rhythms on the album. The other five come courtesy of Lloyd Parks’s We The People Band and all are original recordings made specifically for this album.
