This is the first volume of the HOT Sauce compilation LPs dedicated to the Trojan related UK labels between 1965 and 1975. The initial plan is for at least 3 albums of 14 titles. HOT Sauce Volume 1 features Rocksteady, Boss Reggae, early Dub & early Reggae outstanding original Jamaican tracks including rare songs, overlooked gems, hidden treasures and some hits. The record labels showcased on the first volume are Attack, Amalgamated, Black Swan, Blue Cat, Downtown, Doctor Bird, Duke, Grape, High Note, Randy’s and Trojan. The tracks here have been selected according to their musical interest firstly, their rarity, and their complementarity. These tracks are all outstanding tracks, “killer tracks”, there are no “fillers” whatsoever. Particular attention has been paid to the way the songs are sequenced (or “mixed”) so that the album builds up nicely and gradually, generally starting with the Rocksteady songs on the A side and the 70s songs on the B side. HOT Sauce is a musical journey across the early Reggae UK labels and across different Jamaican musical genres & talents and the way they interact together. Since the early 70s “Tighten Up” series, no compilation have really explored these labels in depth on vinyl…

Another Night Owls 45 fresh off the press! To round out the year, this 7” features their take on the classic Young Rascals original Groovin’, flipped in true Night Owls fashion. This homage, based off the Willie Mitchell rendition (with a nod to the Wu-Tang sample) features SoCal’s very own soul master Jamie Allensworth on lead vocals, backed with Night Owls signature Jamaican stylings. Taking the feel up in tempo along with the solid one drop of drummer Blake Colie and bubbly organ rhythms from Roger Rivas, all held together by Dave Wilder on bass and maestro Dan Ubick on guitar, this rendition is surely one to lift spirits and what we all need right now. Side-B features an instrumental of Side-A, but different in its own right with Roger Rivas taking the lead on organ and showcasing the great songwriting elements this tune holds. Produced by Dan Ubick and Night Owls. Recorded and Mixed by Dan Ubick for DanUbe Productions at The Lions Den in Topanga, CA.

Big Crown’s Danny Akalepse is back with another limited edition cassette tape. Two different forthcoming Big Crown Radio Episodes, one on each side.

Side A, "Lost & Looking" is a mix of Reggae, Soul, and Jazz and leans on the places they cross into each other. The whole thing comes out as a haunting and heavy vibe full of big tunes. Lepse runs down original versions and the covers, remixes, and a bunch of records from the deep end of the pool. Eerie obscurities, both instrumental and vocal blend together to make a proper mood.

The B Side, "My Heaven" is a mix of slowies that are all by Jamaican artists on Reggae labels. B sides of 45s and album cuts. From soul ballads to doo-wops to mid-tempos all in a JA style. A big part of the slowie records that haven’t yet gotten the new found attention. There’s a whole world of these, this is a just a cassette sides worth.

“abbey Road’s world-renowned engineers have been cutting grooves into discs since the studios first opened their doors in 1931. This record was pressed from a master cut using a precision technique known as half-speed mastering. The procedure requires the source master and the cutting lathe to run at half speed on a specially adapted Neumann Vms-80 lathe.

This rare and specialised technique transforms difficult to cut highend frequencies into relatively easy to cut mid-range frequencies. The result is a cut with excellent high frequency response and very solid and stable stereo images. In short, half-speed mastering produces a master of the highest quality that enables the pressing plant to produce a superlative record.”

Genre:Reggae / Dancehall
Year 1964. Almost out of nowhere, the little-known and regarded director Sergio Leone transposes into a western key a film by Akira Kurosawa, and by putting together all the right pieces, adding a bit of intuition, lays down new rules for the 'spaghetti western' genre, giving way to an endless series of imitations.

"A Fistful of Dollars" would not have the same impact without the inimitable music written by Ennio Morricone, who had curiously been an old elementary school Leone’s classmate. The main soundtrack themes were chosen from two arrangements that Morricone had already drafted two years earlier; once removed the lyrics and added the unmistakable whistle of Alessandro Alessandroni, the spaghetti-sound was finally complete!

The film was an incredible success, and projected Leone, Morricone, and in particular the actor Clint Eastwood into the Olympus of the Great. The soundtrack was released for the first time the following year (1965), along with the one of Sergio Leone's subsequent work "For a Few Dollars More".

This new edition sees the original seven tracks of the score in a completely new layout. The format is a 10" 45rpm LP, with a 26x26cm miniposter attached. Clear vinyl edition.

Symarip began in the 1960s as The Bees, the UK’s first major 60's Reggae band then as The Pyramids, Symarip and Seven Letters. In 1971 they moved to Germany to perform Afro-rock music under the name Zubaba. Frank Pitter, Symarip's original drummer, recalls watching Keith Moon, The Who's drummer on TV around 1965/1966 and deciding " right then and there to become a drummer, to make a living as a musician”. The Bees included: Roy Ellis (Vocals, Trombone), Monty Neysmith (Hammond Organ & Keyboard), Frank Pitter (Drums), Micheal Thomas (Bass), Josh Roberts (Guitar), Roy Bug Knight (Saxophone), Johney Johnson (Trumpet), Carl Grifith (Tennor & Alto Sax). They all originated from the Jamaican community and quickly became the U.K. main supporting act for visiting Jamaican artists. They toured extensively across the UK, playing for Lauren Aitken, Prince Buster, Eddy Grant, Millie Small, Owen Gray, Jackie Edwards, Desmond Dekker, The Pioneers, The Ethiopians, The Maytals... to name a few. They signed with the label President under the name The Pyramids, with Eddy Grant writing and producing their first album and their first hit, Train Tour To Rainbow City in 1967. Despite their popularity, they got little support from their record label. This is then that Monty Neysmith came up with the idea of turning Pyramids into Symarip, hence allowing the band to sign with Trojan. Symarip recorded their first album under this name with Trojan in 1969. It featured among others "these Boots Are Made For Walking", “Skinhead Girl”, “Skinhead Jamboree” and “Skinhead Moonstomp”. "Moonstomp" was in fact a version of Derrick Morgan's 1969 "Moon Hop". Additionally, it featured a vocal introduction: "I want all you skinheads to get up on your feet/Put your braces together and your boots on your feet/And give me some of that old moonstomping" that was very similar to the Sam & Dave' "I Thank You” song introduction. Over the years “Skinhead Moonstomp” charted several times for Symarip and finally reached number 1 with The Specials in 1980. Although their songs were the first targeting the Skinhead audience, they have become mega anthems for the black and white communities in U.K. and around the world. And Symarip special brand of Reggae is also widely recognized to have greatly influenced the Two Tone bands of the early 80's. Today's Symarip songs are still incredibly popular. 50 years after their releases, the legend goes on!

Genre:Reggae / Dancehall
Liam Bailey comes out swinging with "White Light," an instant-classic, dancefloor filler. The rough and tough drum break intro catches you from the first beat before the track gives way to an infectious and uplifting reggae-dis- co number. Liam's instantly recognizable voice showers his muse with praise over deep round bass lines and a four on the floor beat. The combination of Leon Michels' crushing production and Bailey's lyrics like "You love yourself, you're so exciting, like no one else"... is sure to make this a staple in dj sets around the globe.The B side "Cold & Clear" is a proper lighters in the air, slap the wall, top ranking tune. The track struts in the door with a natural and undeniable confidence. Liam weaves a heavy metacognitive story over the one drop drums, perfect basslines, and organ stabs that will have people stepping in rhythm. The lo-fi production weaves elements from the finest early rocksteady era with touches from the late 70s / early 80s digital era and takes the entire vibe into the present with unorthodox arrangements and vocal treatments. Bailey has a tune here that will hold up next to the classics in the dancehalls from the yards of Jamaica to the discotheques in his homeland of England.

LP | 1974 | UK | Reissue (Dug Out)
15,99 €*
Release:1974 / UK – Reissue
Genre:Reggae / Dancehall
Dark, hypnotic, tripping nyabinghi from 1974.

Led by Ras Michael over four extended excursions, the music is organic, sublime and expansive, grounation-drums and bass heavy (with no rhythm guitar, rather Willie Lindo brilliantly improvising a kind of dazed, harmolodic blues).

Lloyd Charmers and Federal engineer George Raymond stayed up all night after the session, to mix the recording, opening out the enraptured mood into echoing space, adding sparse, startling effects to the keyboards.

At no cost to its deep spirituality, this is the closest reggae comes to psychedelia.

The third installment of this reissue series brings us the dreamy sounds of Kip Carmen & Danny Horton, two seasoned musicians telling us the story about a very special island. At the time of recording in 1980, Kip had already enjoyed a successful career in the entertainment industry after getting signed to Hi Records in Memphis and working together with artists such as Al Green and Jimmy Allen Smith. He then teamed up with Danny and a few other musicians starting a residency at the Long Island night club 'The Lion's Cage' where they played every Sunday night. Originally released on 7" only, the two songs have now been restored from the original master tapes and are pressed on a 12" including a previously unreleased extended version containing a part that was originally left out.

“abbey Road’s world-renowned engineers have been cutting grooves into discs since the studios first opened their doors in 1931. This record was pressed from a master cut using a precision technique known as half-speed mastering. The procedure requires the source master and the cutting lathe to run at half speed on a specially adapted Neumann Vms-80 lathe.

This rare and specialised technique transforms difficult to cut highend frequencies into relatively easy to cut mid-range frequencies. The result is a cut with excellent high frequency response and very solid and stable stereo images. In short, half-speed mastering produces a master of the highest quality that enables the pressing plant to produce a superlative record.”

Cultures of Soul is very excited to announce this killer tropical reggae cover of Sade's Smooth Operator. Recorded at Circle Sound Studios in Miami the backing track was recorded by members of the famous reggae outfit Inner Circle with vocals by local area rising star at the time, Sabrina Rich. Sabrina (her real name is actually Sabrena) had been making records in her and her ex-husband's studio in their garage for years. The result of which was the disco 12" Exit/Whispering. Around this time Sabrina was performing in the Palm Beach / Boca Raton area of Florida and performed with Jimmy Bo Horne. Some time after Sabrina worked with a man named Kenneth Corey who mastered her recordings. Kenneth referred her to Roger and Ian Lewis of Inner Circle to help press up their vinyl. They became friends and around 1985 recorded Smooth Operator. During this time they were working and partying hard and experimenting with different ideas and sounds. The track was originally released in small numbers as sort of a demo and never really took off. Shortly after Inner Circle went on tour in Europe and the single went into obscurity until many years later when copies of the record turned up in New York and Toronto. This 12" includes a special discomix edit by Duckcomb a.k.a. Patrick Billard, DJ and record collector extraordinaire.

Genre:Reggae / Dancehall
Long-out-of-print re-release of this classic Sugar Minott album on Soul Jazz Records,
bringing together the best of his classic material recorded at Studio One in the 1970s.
Lincoln Sugar Minott was born in Kingston, Jamaica, in 1956. He grew up in a poor area of
West Kingston and from an early age developed a love of Reggae music and the music of
Studio One in particular. As a teenager, he became selector for Sound of Silence Keystone
and Gathering of Youth local sound-systems. By the late 1970s Minott had risen to
become one of the biggest stars in Jamaican music.
Sugar Minott began his career at Studio One. After auditioning in front of Clement ‘Sir
Coxsone’ Dodd in the early 1970s, he became the first artist to record new songs over
classic rhythms, singing over original Studio One tapes – the significance of which led
directly to the birth of dancehall, as Channel One, Joe Gibbs and hundreds of other
Jamaican producers quickly began releasing their own material based on these same
classic Studio One rhythms replayed by Sly and Robbie, The Aggrovators, Soul Syndicate,
Roots Radics and many others.
“I knew Studio One spiritually before I knew Studio One physically. You know I grew up
beside a dancehall and Sir Coxsone’s sound used to play there from when I was a boy. So
from that influence you know I used to love Studio One sound so much, I became a sound
selector. So that was my first involvement with getting to know Studio One music like The
Heptones, Alton Ellis, Ken Boothe, the whole works and that was my life from a youth.”
After Sugar Minott’s debut many other artists followed suit at the label such as Freddie
McGregor, Johnny Osbourne, Lone Ranger and Michigan & Smiley leading to one of the
most creative periods for the label. This is the first retrospective of Sugar Minott at the
label and most of these recordings have never been widely available outside Jamaica.
Sugar Minott went on to a huge career in Reggae and is today one of the biggest stars in
Jamaican music. He set up his own Black Roots/Youth Promotions label releasing music by
Barry Brown, Michael Palmer, Tenor Saw, Barrington Levy, Horace Andy, Garnett Silk,
Junior Delgado, Yami Bolo, Junior Reid and many more.
Sugar Minott went on to work for numerous Jamaican producers. His ‘Good Thing Going’
produced by Donovan Germain became a number one hit in the UK and led to the rise of
Lovers Rock. This album includes classic cuts as well as super-rare singles only recordings,
all of which have been digitally re-mastered for this release.

One of the most exciting debuts of the roots era, Same Song (1978) boasted the cream of the crop of Jamaican musicianship, including famous producers Sly & Robbie, legendary accordion player Augustus Pablo, and keyboardists Mikey Chung and Ansel Collins. The album's Rastafarian themes and the trio's obvious religious devotion make this a cultural classic. Same Song is a shout of belief, so heartfelt, as to quiet all else around it.
