1 - BELLOT, ERROL - YOUTHMAN- THE LOST ALBUM - (CD) 
REGGAE ARCHIVE


Errol Bellot is one of the best kept secrets in British reggae with a career spanning more than thirty years, he has released dozens of high quality records and become a singer of choice for reggae connoisseurs worldwide. The fact that his name is barely known beyond the hardcore reggae audience, is symptomatic of a career focused on one off singles for small independent reggae labels unable to give Errol's talent the support and exposure it so deserves.We were given full access to the session tapes recorded between 1983 and 1985 and selected a standout mixture of 16 vocals, dubs and extended disco mixes to which we've added Errol's first self-production, the excellent, expensive and very sought after "The Wicked Them" which is sequenced together with its previously unreleased dub version discovered on the original master tape. The only other track on the album to have previously surfaced is "Rootsman" which saw a belated and limited issue on 10" in 2006.The bulk of the tracks were recorded to four track and have the raw feel of dubplate mixes with an emphasis on the bass line and sound system play. Rather than try and tame them we've embraced that authentic sound. The tracks were transferred at the famous Conscious Sounds studio and where necessary, were then edited together by Rootikal's David Hill giving us four extended disco mixes that only add to the genuine eighties vibes. Five of the vocals are paired with full dub counterparts with Jah Bunny showing his mastery of the dub version and giving speakers a real workout with tracks like "Do What You Have To Do Dub" pushing your woofers to their limits. This entire album is definitely sound system friendly.

3 - SCEPTRE - ESSENCE OF REDEMPTION INA DIF'RENT STYLEY - (CD) 
REGGAE ARCHIVE


Founded in 1981 in Britain's second city Birmingham, the band Sceptre were part of a thriving local music scene, that for the most part revolved around live shows in the region's community centres, university campuses, pubs and nightclubs. Neglected by major labels, many bands went unrecorded and of those that did get documented most managed to release just one or two singles. Fortunately, Sceptre recorded and released an entire album, 1984's "Essence of Redemption Ina Dif'rent Styley".Poorly pressed, in very small numbers and with limited distribution, the album didn't sell well and barely made an impact on its release. However, whatever its problems the music itself was first class and over the last three decades, has acquired numerous fans and an ever growing reputation as a classic of the British reggae genre. Musically this is one of the strongest UK albums there is, with not a single weak track and many stand outs. Six of the ten songs are roots, varying between a classic roots sound based on a 1970s Jamaican blue print on "Essence of Redemption", "Nuclear Disaster", "Soul Searching" and "Pestilence and Bombing" to a more contemporary UK feel on "Right Time Coming," whilst "Get Up And Go" incorporates a funk feel into the mix. Three of the tunes, "Play the Music", "Me on My Own" and "Goodbye" are Lovers Rock with Jean McLean taking over lead vocal duties from the men, whilst Jean's sister Beverley aka Rankin Bev demonstrates her MC skills on the dancehall orientated "Ina Dif'rent Styley".

5 - SIS JENDAYI - FEEL IT (10") - (EP) 
REGGAE ARCHIVE


10" limited edition of 500 copies.Some years ago, whilst compiling our Bristol Reggae Explosion series, I was approached by Mike Taysum who told me of a great unreleased reggae track which he'd played guitar on back in 1982. Unfortunately, he'd lost his cassette copy of the song long ago and at that time, Rob Smith (Smith & Mighty) who also played on and produced the track, had no idea as to the whereabouts of the masters. Earlier this year Rob Smith happened to mention that he'd been transferring his old recordings and had come across the masters for "Feel It". Without hesitation I suggested we release the song a mere 37 years after it was recorded, with the added bonus of three original dub mixes he'd also found on the tapes.The recordings originate from a session one afternoon in late 1982 when three members of Bristol's Arts Opportunity Theatre set about recording a track they'd written. With just three people and limited equipment, they made a strength of their limitations and in doing so came up with something unique for the time. In many ways "Feel It" pre-empts the small studio, no budget DIY approach that from the late eighties which would see a UK led roots reggae revival spread as an antidote to the direction Jamaican dancehall reggae was then travelling, further and further away from the seventies roots sound.

6 - VARIOUS - BLACK SYMBOL PRESENTS HANDSWORTH EXPLOSION 1 - (LP) 
REGGAE ARCHIVE


Ahead of the release of a CD combining both volumes of this unique musical project, we are pleased to make "Black Symbol present Handsworth Explosion Vol. One" once more available on its original format, vinyl.As with the second volume, the original of this release suffered from limited distribution and despite the valiant efforts of band members to promote the album, literally travelling around the UK's record shops with boxes of LPs, the original release sold in very limited numbers. It has justifiably become one of the most sought after and expensive British reggae LPs and one where the music more than lives up to expectations.Black Symbol provided other local Handsworth based bands with the opportunity to record their songs properly in the well equipped Outlaw Studio and then gave them the platform of this album with each band getting two tracks to showcase their talent. This album lifts the lid on a scene that was overflowing with talent and yet rarely documented

TRACKLISTING: 01. Sceptre - Ancestors Calling 02. Truth & Rights - New Language 03. Black Symbol - Travelling 04. Gerald Love - Jah Children 05. Zephaniah - Music Business 06. Truth & Rights - Saddest Moment 07. Black Symbol - Spiritual Reggae 08. Gerald Love - Scandal Man 09. Sceptre - Living On Strong 10. Zephaniah - Free Man

7 - VARIOUS - BLACK SYMBOL PRESENTS HANDSWORTH EXPLOSION II - (LP) 
REGGAE ARCHIVE


RSD 2014 exclusive.500 GREEN colour vinyl. Black Symbol were always more than a reggae band and although they released their own music on their Black Symbol label, they wanted to support other talented artists in their community and so without any outside help, they used their own money to record, release and distribute two compilations of music from Birmingham's Handsworth area.The aim of these compilation albums was summed up on the back of "Handsworth Explosion Volume II": "Handsworth Explosion is a brand new revolutionary idea originated by 'FATMAN' the producer, lead vocalist and founder member of BLACK SYMBOL. The intention of this album is to provide a much needed link between Symbol and other Ghetto bands, to reveal, an as yet, undiscovered talent suppressed by the music machine. The Handsworth Explosion shall open up the eyes and hearts of many, yet it shall explode in the minds of many; this combination of music can only be played in the Ghetto by musicians who live in and bear the weight of their society. Handsworth Explosion sets out not only to satisfy musically, but be an inspiration and revelation."Musically, this is a straight reissue with the same 10 tracks from Black Symbol, Benjamin Zephaniah, Mystic Foundation, Man from the Hills and Black Knight, a musical time capsule of talent from inner city Birmingham at the start of the 1980s, a very different time but one that still resonates today.One thing we have changed is the sleeve design, with Fatman's blessing and in keeping with the original; we have commissioned a new illustration from Nick Darby and hopefully rectified the one weakness of the original release.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Stop The War Benjamin Zephaniah 5.17 02. Redemption Day Man From The Hills 3.13 03. Life In The Ghetto Mystic Foundation 3.37 04. Feeling Is Irie Black Symbol 2.52 05. Lets Make Up Black Knight 3.19 06. Trouble Trouble Black Symbol 5.05 07. Unite Handsworth Benjamin Zephaniah 4.05 08. How Long Man From The Hills 3.10 09. Handsworth Mystic Foundation 3.37 10. Feeling Black Knight 3.36

9 - VARIOUS - FASHION IN FINE STYLE, VOL.1 SIGNIFICANT HITS - (CD) 
REGGAE ARCHIVE


There is no other label that defines UK reggae in the eighties and nineties as well as Fashion Records. For two decades they captured the sound of the UK as it was happening. Their constant stream of singles and LPs effectively defined the UK MC style, dominated the UK lovers rock charts, pioneered the UK ragga sound, released roots and dub and provided huge inspiration for the jungle and garage scenes. After a long hiatus, Fashion has been relaunched in the digital domain but, with a strong demand for physical releases of their back catalogue from fans old and new, John and Chris have chosen Reggae Archive Records as their partner to meet that demand with a comprehensive programme of vinyl and CD releases and giving the new label access to all of the Fashion catalogue, including unreleased tracks.To launch the new partnership, Reggae Archive Records have decided to start with the same compilation that launched Fashion's arrival on the digital platform and will be releasing the various artists compilation "Fashion In Fine Style - Significant Hits Volume One" as a digitally remastered CD. Personally selected by John and Chris, the compilation starts with the first release on the label and indeed its first hit Dee Sharp's "Let's Dub It Up". The next five tracks continue in a similar lovers vein with Peter Hunnigale, Winsome and Janet Lee-Davis joined by Jamaican legend Alton Ellis.The album keeps up a mellow vibe, but heads in a roots direction with tracks from Nereus Joseph and Jah Mali before Frankie Paul ushers in the dancehall sounds the label was famous for. We are given nine variations on the dancehall style ranging from roots themes to sound clash tunes and the early digital style to raga. There's even a jungle remix amongst them with the remix of Top Cat's "Request this Style" though it rather conflicts with the message of Starkey Banton's "Jungle Bungle". Last, but by no means least, is a track from the label's twilight. Chris Lane in his Dub Organiser alter ego with the excellent "Herbal Dub", a great slice of dub and a final reminder of just how versatile the labeL was.This is a great opportunity for fans old and new to pick up some of Fashion's biggest hits on CD.

10 - VARIOUS - RISE UP- THE RIZ RECORDS STORY - (CD) 
REGGAE ARCHIVE


For Reggae Archive Records latest lovingly compiled and annotated testament to the nascent UK roots/dub scene of the 1990s, they've gone straight for one of the best with "Rise Up - The Riz Records Story". With an output that spanned most of the decade and a catalogue that stretched beyond the usual handful of singles to include some very strong albums, Riz was a powerhouse for the revival of UK reggae and the growth in its popularity that continues to this day. This is a fantastic selection of 15 of the best the label has to offer. If that wasn't enough, six of the tracks feature exclusive discomixes from Rootikal's David Hill whilst tracks from Willie Williams and Earl 16 are previously unreleased. One of the labels strengths was the ability to attract and record leading Jamaican artists as well as those from the UK. In addition to Willie Williams and Earl 16, we've included tracks from Johhny Osbourne, Admiral Tibet, Danny Red, Bob Skeng, Orville Smith, Mikey Mystic, Indica All Stars and of course the ever present Riz All Stars, the sort of line-up that most of the UK's independent reggae labels could only have dreamed of recording. All the tracks were taken from the original master tapes with everyone involved in the project aiming to achieve the best possible sound. These tracks have never sounded better.In addition to the music, the package also contains extensive sleeve notes recounting the label's story with contributions from key players Nick Manasseh and Gil Cang as well as archive images, with the vinyl version coming in hand screen printed sleeves.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Johnny Osbourne 'rise Up' Rootikal Discomix 02. Admirel Tibet 'permission' 03. Ras 'the Garden' 04. Orville Smith 'fight Fight' Rootikal Discomix 05. Indica All Stars 'open Our Eyes' (phoebes Cut) 06. Danny Red 'dance Get Overload' Discomix 07. Bob Skeng 'education' Rootikal Discomix 08. Ras Feat.

11 - VARIOUS - SOUND N PRESSURE STORY - (CD) 
REGGAE ARCHIVE


Inspired by the first wave of UK produced Digi Roots and Dub he was hearing at Nick Manasseh's Roots Rock Reggae sessions at London's Dingwalls and Jah Shaka dances, reggae lover and club promoter Anthony Cummins got together with friends Adam Holden (Fish), Mark Evans (Suffurah) and Hamish Brown (All Nation Rockers), to see about getting some studio time and trying their hand at creating their own music. A visit to Youth Sound record shop to get feedback for an early version of "Warm The Nation" gained them a positive response from Tenastelin, Danny Red and MC Ishen. Joined by local singer Kenrick Griffith (Versatile Creations), they finished the track and the following Spring, the Sound 'n' Pressure label launched with the release of "Warm the Nation" on 12".The record was a hit on the underground UK reggae scene and over the next couple of years, the label put out another three equally well received twelve inch singles and had their fifth release recorded and being played on dubplate by Aba Shanti. Unfortunately for reggae fans, in 1995 Anthony decided to put his time and energy into creating and opening his own studio and the label was put on hold with no further releases. In the intervening years, a whole new generation of fans in the UK and worldwide have discovered those original Sound 'n' Pressure records, often paying high prices to secure copies. Finally the music will be readily available again when Reggae Archive Records release their Sound 'n' Pressure compilation, 'Sound 'n' Pressure Story, on 11th March 2013. Remastered from the original master tapes, the music has never sounded better and in addition to the four twelve inches, the album includes both tracks from what would have been the fifth single, (previously an exclusive Aba Shanti dub plate), and an unreleased track Anthony created for a short film..The album comes with sleeve notes filling in the background to the label and is available on CD, limited edition vinyl
