Peter Tosh was a founding member of Jamaican reggae legends the Wailers along with Bob Marley. With his rough-and-tumble sound and image, Tosh gave the early incarnation of the Wailers an edge that was informed by Ska and it's "Rude Boy" lifestyle. In the mid-70's he split from the group and he embarked on a solo career with the pro-marijuana album Legalize It. Unfortunately, in 1987, Tosh was gunned down during an incident at his home in Kingston, ending the life of a reggae innovator.

Junior Murvin

Police & Thieves [Colored Vinyl]

Vinyl: $24.98 UNAVAILABLE

MP3 Album: $7.99 Download

Police & Thieves is a Roots Reggae classic by Junior Murvin originally released in 1977 which was produced by Lee "Scratch" Perry (who also wrote or co-wrote many of the songs) at his legendary Black Ark Studios with The Upsetters. The title song was memorably covered by The Clash in a very different arrangement than Murvin's. Perry's imaginative and groundbreaking production surrounded Junior's falsetto vocals and the musicians in a dense, echo heavy, spaced out sound to create one of the great songs, and albums, of the roots era. Now available on opaque blue vinyl! Record stampers produced by Record Technology, Inc. Camarillo California, USA.

Falling Into Place [Vinyl]

Vinyl: $17.98 UNAVAILABLE

MP3 Album: $9.99 Download

Vinyl LP pressing. A dozen years into Rebelution's stirring career, the release of the California reggae band's fifth album Falling Into Placefinds them more energized than ever. Touring relentlessly since 2014's Count Me In debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Reggae chart, the band's members have expanded their songwriting horizons and recorded 11 tight new tracks that fuse an ever-youthful attitude of celebration with the mature perspective of men of the world. For Falling into Place, Rebelution's four core members - Rachmany, keyboardist Rory Carey, drummer Wesley Finley, and bassist Marley D. Williams - got some refreshing new perspectives by writing with different producers and writers and recording at multiple studios. For Rachmany, the creativity began with an inspirational trip to Jamaica, the birthplace of reggae, where he did some of the writing. Falling Into Place mingles stories of love gained and lost with reminiscences of years gone by ("Pretty Lady," "Those Days," "Santa Barbara") and socially pertinent songs like "Know It All," which challenges the hatred in an ever-more-violent world and a fraught political environment. Jamaican deejay and one time tour-mate Protoje adds guest vocals on "Inhale Exhale," an intense earworm celebrating the movement towards further legalization of marijuana.

Prophetically, it also contains some of the band's finest crafted material, as if they were cognizant that this would be their final outing. The album's blend of religious and secular themes likewise creates a very powerful and singular quest for spirituality in a material world. Bob Marley was a Jamaican reggae singer, song writer, musician, and guitarist who achieved international fame and acclaim. His music in the 70s established his worldwide reputation and produced his status as one of the world's best-selling artists of all time, with sales of more than 75 million records.

2018 marks the 40th Anniversary of Bob Marley & The Wailers’ KAYA. Recorded in part during Marley’s and the band’s 1977 exile in London, KAYA is very much the sibling record to EXODUS. Fittingly, as Ziggy Marley revisited the original session recordings for last year’s EXODUS 40 celebration, this year sibling Stephen Marley revisits the original session recordings to commemorate KAYA, bringing a fresh perspective to this suite that’s quietly referred to as the ‘Peace Treaty’ album.

However, you'll find no imitation here - none of the faux-jamaican cliches of lesser reggae bands. Like all things Daptone, this record is above all soulful and honest.

The groundbreaking debut album from 1981 that plays on both the title and concept of David Byrne and Brian Eno's My Life in the Bush of Ghosts. Built upon sparse backing tracks constructed by Adrian Sherwood, the producer invited Bonjo Iyabinghi Noah (who had studied under Count Ossie in the rasta drumming camp at Wareika Hill in Jamaica) to lay down hand percussion patterns and breaks on top, augmented by stereo-strafed effects and the occasional burst of Sun Ra-style horns. The result is a unique mixture of traditional African rhythms, dub and free jazz. Features DJ favorite "Stebeni's Theme" and "Far Away Chant", used to famously gruesome effect by David Lynch in the film Wild At Heart. Re-cut at dubplates & mastering in Berlin for maximum bass pressure. Includes printed inner with sleeve notes by Steve Barker (On The Wire), plus download card for full album.
