The Harder They Come [LP]

Vinyl: $21.98 UNAVAILABLE

The breakthrough album that—in conjunction with the film of the same title—burst reggae through into the mainstream with its release in England in summer 1972 and in the US, on Island’s newly inaugurated reggae specialist imprint Mango, in spring 1973.
As film director and co-writer Perry Henzell said of the film, the first of its kind produced in the island nation’s first decade of independence, “There is no impact you will ever have greater than the impact of showing a society itself on the screen for the first time.”
The album captured the sound of Jamaica, and remains a vital document and evergreen collection of the best in Jamaican music.

Peter Tosh

Legalize It

Vinyl: $19.98 UNAVAILABLE
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.

Digitally remastered and expanded edition. Released in 1972, the Junior Byles single 'Beat Down Babylon' provided one of the clearest indications to date of the impending roots sound that would soon dominate reggae. The immense popularity of the Lee 'Scratch' Perry-produced 45, both in Jamaica and the UK, swiftly prompted a best-selling long-player of the same title, issued later that year. Comprising ten of the singer-songwriter's recent recordings for the mighty Upsetter, the LP has since been re-issued on vinyl on a number of occasions, but has never been officially made available on CD until now. Now, at long last, Beat Down Babylon does finally make it onto the format, with the original track-listing bolstered by the remainder of Byles' released work for Perry, which includes numerous Jamaican hits, most notably the 1974 smash, 'Curley Locks'.
