extraordinary reggae

Finding myself a little bored by searching out 'seminal' roots reggae, only to find it 80% of the time adhering to the same overall sound with minor variations (I love that sound, but.....), I'm on the prowl for more singular examples of reggae in the roots era, tracks that are strikingly different from the sonic norm, or suggest some unexplored furrow of 70s/early 80s Jamaican music.
My preliminary suggestions(apologies if they verge on the obscure):

The Vulcans - Star Trek
The Upsetters - Long Sentence

Both synth driven science-fiction instrumental reggae;

The Upsetters- Bird in Hand
Ricky and Bunny - Bush Weed Corn Trash

Both with a sound that sounds way more devotional/earthy/spiritual (forget the subject matter of the second track)than the oft-quoted Abyssinians or late Ethiopians. Yabby You is another good one in this vein.

King Tubby and Harry Mudie - various dubs

STRINGS!!

Impact Allstars - Easy Come Dub
Santic Allstars - Shooter Dub

Crazy FX and synth driven dub that provides relief from the (albeit brilliant) 'normal' King Tubby sound.

Nothing much wrong with their first album, and quite different melodically from most reggae.

what about

andy capp - pop a top
king tubby - a rougher version

two dub tracks that seriously melt the fabric of reggae

village idiot (dog latin), Tuesday, 6 April 2010 16:10 (ten years ago) link

Is "Pop a Top" a hard, minimalistic dancehall track? If it is . . . was one of my favorite 45s until I lost it.

I suspect not. There's a review here:

http://www.smallaxepeople.com/thesmallaxepeoplereviews.htm

It sounds interesting.

Also, I think Dillinger, like, CB 200 and his other keyboard heavy, disco-y stuff, fits this "extraordinary reggae" description.

"Pop A Top" is actually a very early dub single, but by comparison to later stuff it's completely bonkers.

More from Scratch, "Cow Thief Skank" = splices together three different tracks, he did this on a few tracks but never so bizarrely as here. Also, can't remember the name of the track, but there's one where he (seamlessly) splices in a few bars from The Chi-Lites' "Give More Power to the People".

I wonder whether this:

there was one lee perry production i heard that just stops completely, then gets ushered back in by that zombie/cow noise he's so fond of

was "Life" by Prodigal Creator off the back of (one of) the UK 12" issues of "Conscious Man" by the Jolly Brothers?

I wonder whether the "backwards" Perry thing Tom was thinking of was "Evol Yenoh", b-side of "Honey Love", same backing track but with the vocal track run backwards.

I wonder why I don't remember anything about this thread.

My offering: "Bubble Up" by Wayne Jarret, Wackies production, flutes sound like they're underwater (it's on the LP "Bubble Up" which was renamed "Showcase" for the reissue, or have I got that the wrong way round?).

Tim, Tuesday, 31 July 2012 10:53 (seven years ago) link

Oh and I kinda think everyone knows this but the fading in and out high pressure trombone on "Flat Foot Hustling" by Dillinger maybe fits the bill here.

Tim, Tuesday, 31 July 2012 10:56 (seven years ago) link

DL what's the mastering like on those Nascente comps? They look good to me (nice mix of stuff I know and stuff I don't) but so often with these not-too-pricey comps you get duff sound and so they just stay on the shelf.

Tim, Tuesday, 31 July 2012 11:03 (seven years ago) link

Sounds very very good. And yeah, even though I've got dozens of good reggae comps there's not that much crossover on these with what I already have and most of the songs are great!

Granny Danger - I'm a big fan of that Serge dub album.

What about '60s ska and rocksteady? I find a lot of Desmond Dekker's stuff extraordinary simply because of the phrasing and cadence he uses. Really imaginative structures that twist and turn like the human consciousness...

This is also on the Nascente comp and I love it:

the assumption is always that there *is* some unexplored furrow out there, and not just another rut

the late great, Friday, 3 August 2012 05:19 (seven years ago) link

Hmmm. I'd argue that some of this stuff isn't too "extraordinary," but there you go. I would suggest (though it's out-of-print) the excellent double CD on Trojan of Roy Shirley recordings called "Music Is The Key." He performed what was arguably the first rocksteady song, "Hold Them," produced by Joe Gibbs, and to some extent his only well-known song. But Shirley had an extraordinarily odd, quivery voice and was probably about ten years before his time (I shudder to think of what marvels Black Ark-era Lee Perry and him would have produced.) Check out this incredible bit of live footage (music starts at about 1:14, but the whole thing's cool):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vNDXanDd8fg

The small local crowd is going nuts, and Shirley puts on a great performance. I especially love his song "My Bride," which is too odd to describe. Can't find it on YouTube, but it's on the Trojan compilation of his stuff.

Doctor Alimantado is pretty cool too. Famously championed by Johnny Rotten and quoted by the Clash ("like the doctor who was born for a purpose" in "Rudie Can't Fail"), Alimantado sang and toasted and squealed and most of it was pretty great. His classic is "Best Dressed Chicken In Town," a weird deejay tune in a dub style:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vu97ctxg8hk

But I also like the straight forward roots of "Born For A Purpose," which is probably his most famous tune - a more frenetic and dubby version of something like a GG Alvin-produced Gregory Isaacs track, it defies a lot of the convention of its time by being very metronomic and still kind of loony:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k6pIONWxTbs&feature=related

George Faith's "To Be A Lover" album is a classic Black Ark production, but differs from others of the era (Congos, Jolly Brothers, Junior Murvin) in being highly indebted to southern soul (he covers William Bell and Lee Dorsey, among others) but not really sounding anything like it. Pretty widely available too, which is a plus. Check out the title track:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hzYVfzUNGec

Joe Gibbs' mid-70s dub stuff really stood out for its intense rhythms (here, I think is one of Adrian Sherwood's big influences), weird sound effects and general grooviness. Any of the four volumes of "African Dub Almighty" are great, but the third is the ultimate one, and the Pressure Sounds "No Bones For Dogs" release is chock full of great stuff.

here's a great track from the third "African Dub Almighty" album:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g2rBi_L4NKc

There's a period of Mikey Dread's career where he was the leading *original* roots producer, which is probably best heard on "World War III" or "Beyond World War III," which are more or less the same album. One of them is still easy to get. Here's the title track:

seeing dog latin mention Aisha's wonderful Creator, reminded me of this song, which Aisha covers, tho I love the Faybiene Miranda original:

http://youtube/-phUA8P1wuw

was wondering if anyone knew the specifics of why it was banned. It mentions politicians and people heeding the call, but that's p small beer surely.

that mournful brass one of my favourite sounds in reggae - and I realise this is very well known, but it is extraordinary:

http://youtube/csZ-Vo4GwX4

(the ken boothe/i roy black, gold and green/red, gold and green track feels like the platonic ideal of this sound).

also - don't know enough to know whether its spurious to associate that sound with a strand of heavily politicised reggae of the 1970s (the songs here 75, 75, 72 respectively) but it seems right.

Fizzles, Saturday, 15 June 2013 15:40 (seven years ago) link

I haven't seen it mentioned here yet, but dub-lovers should try and source the Scientist album "The Best Album In The World." It really is one of the greatest dub albums, and for a genre that can rely upon similar sounds a lot of the time, it's got a really special vibe.

issiahtwofour, Saturday, 15 June 2013 17:47 (seven years ago) link

doesn't sound like it was too unusual an occurrence.

Q: OK, the stations didn't have any obligation to explain to you why they banned your song, the authorities just banned whatever for whatever reason or purpose. But did you hear any explanation somewhere afterwards why they banned this tune specifically?

A: Sure. Oh, I heard that it was considered like sort of an outcry or call for people to resist or to sort of rise up against the government, which I thought was strange because of PNP at the time.

Q: Yeah, Manley.

A: And I was like... just really feeling them (laughs)! So I didn't know why they would've considered this... I mean, it was clear it was about Marcus Garvey. But I guess it was also clear that it was speaking directly to the hearts of the people. Because at the same time I think three tunes at that time that had been banned from not only radio airplay but supposedly sound systems wasn't supposed to be playing it either on the streets, it was 'War' (The Wailers) and 'Discrimination' by Ras Karbi.

(xpost. to myself. classy.)

will see if I can check out that album tho.

I fell off the reggae reissue bandwagon years ago, but I picked up an album from Pressure Sounds the other day and immediately thought of this thread (which in my mind is basically for ~weird~ reggae): I-Mo-Jah's Rockers from the Land of Reggae: https://pressuresounds.bandcamp.com/album/rockers-from-the-land-of-reggae.

It has a scrappy, shambolic sound that reminds me of late Keith Hudson, Wackies, and Black Ark era Lee Perry (it's from 1982). I'm also reminded that PS started as a subsidiary of On-U Sound.

Cool!

A True White Kid that can Jump (Granny Dainger), Sunday, 28 June 2020 16:06 (one week ago) link

rereading that post, I worry I'm overselling it with those three comparisons, but it's def worth checking out and if nothing else it makes me wish there were more backing choruses in reggae (and more women's voices in general)

rob, Sunday, 28 June 2020 17:38 (one week ago) link

I highly recommend reading the chapter on Pressure Sounds in Ian Preece's book "Listening to the Wind: Encounters with 21st Century Independent Record Labels". Pete Holdsworth who has been running the label since it's beginning is quite a character. Seems like he fell out with Adrian Sherwood a couple of times over the years:

"After a period of time, Adrian and me, we were getting on each other's nerves. He started collecting antique teapots. Bless him, in a way, he is what he is, he grew up in the home counties..."

I will check out Rockers from the Land of Reggae. Santic & Friends is my favourite PS release. I believe there is a second volume which is as good.

millmeister, Sunday, 28 June 2020 19:36 (one week ago) link

that book looks cool, thanks! iirc Blood & Fire had all kinds of weird drama going on too

rob, Sunday, 28 June 2020 21:29 (one week ago) link

And yeah "Down Santic Way" is pretty dope. Honestly, PS never got the love B&F did, but their discography is extremely consistent (though I only know it up until PS65 or so). I also picked up Rubadub Revolution—Bunny Lee productions in the "rub a dub" era—but haven't given it a close listen yet.
