^I love that album, tends to get overlooked in favor of Satta Massa Ganna. Both albums are great though. My copies are on CD only.

The Selecter - Too Much Pressure LP



Great early 80s ska from the UK Two-Tone/Ska Revival Scene. When I'm in the right mood I love this stuff. Nowadays the Selecter tend to get overlooked, at least in the U.S. I think because their better material just isn't as readily available as stuff by more popular groups like the Specials, Madness, the English Beat, etc. I think they're every bit as good as those groups, and they have a female singer (Pauline Black), which is a nice change of pace from all the male-led groups in this scene. My copy doesn't have a real jacket, but was sold as a used LP in a DJ sleeve, which is probably why I was able to pick up it quite cheaply. The record is pretty close to NM though, and that's what counts. This is the U.S. version, note that the U.S. and Canadian copies had extra tracks over the UK version.

Tetrack - Let's Get Started LP



Late 70s roots reggae produced by Augustus Pablo. Some great singing and harmonies on this one, really well done overall. Not much to say about it other than you need this if you like roots reggae. There is also a dub version by Pablo called "Eastman Dub", which I don't have yet.

Get your facts straight - on Discogs it says "Produced by His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie". WACKA WACKA!

Good stuff - do you have the 2015 repress? If so, is it any good?
