Across The Sea (3:58)
Across The Sea (version) (4:07)
Review: Real reggae heads will be familiar with the work of Martin Campbell, a renowned multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, rhythm maker and producer. His skill in the studio is to capture and distill some of the magic of what made all those early reggae rhythms so great and add his own spin on it. He has done so for revered labels like Channel One, Reggae Retro Records and Lg On. It is the latter of those to which he returns now with a bunch of new singles including the superb 'Across The Sea.' It's a great and escapist sound which comes with a dub on the backside of this lovely little 45 rpm.

Hopes & Dreams (dub version) (4:07)
Review: Talented multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, rhythm maker and producer Martin Campbell has some revered studio skills that have made him well known and love in reggae circles. He manages to capture the magical essence of what made the original 70s sounds so special in labels like the iconic Channel One, Log On and Retro Beat. His earlier work was distributed by Reggae Retro Records but now he comes through with a new tune on Log On that hits the nail on the head and has you deep in his warm drums in no time. A dub on the flip of this crucial 45 rpm takes things even deeper.

Cat: VPGS 7107. Rel: 04 May 23
Lacksley Castell - "What A Great Day" (4:01)
Prince Jammy - "Throne Of Blood" (3:12)
Review: Lacksley Castell's 'What A Great Day' is something of a roots reggae classic that has been long hard to find after first dropping back in 1979. It still spuds fresh and will pack a punch on any sound system. Prince Jammy is a master of mixing this sort of stuff who later went on to be a big player in the dancehall game having eventually ditched his analogue tools in favour of digital ones. His dub 'Throne of Blood' is on there flip to round out another brilliant 45rpm from VP, who are masters of just that.

Get Up An' Fight (dub mix) (3:33)
Review: CosTafari is Everald Collins and he has been churning out crucial dub and reggae since the turn of the millennium. He's voiced four albums to date and plenty of EPs on labels like Roots Injection, Ark Music and I Negus Records, as well as working under tens of different aliases. 'Freedom' is a happy dub with jangling drums and perc and his cries for freedom up top. It's well-versed in the classic sound but has a fresh contemporary production twist. It comes as a dub, of course, with the rousing 'Get Up An' Fight' on the flip. This one is more laidback and spare but packs no less of a punch, not least with the charged vocals up top.

Marijuana In My Brain (extended mix) (3:36)
Review: The latest edition to the illustrious Charly catalogue - a re-release of Dillinger's most successful single from 1976, 'Cokane In My Brain' - marks a welcome return of this popular release to record stores. Listening to this release, it's easy to trace the figures the Kingston-born Dillinger has labelled as key inspirations in the sound he brings into existence - namely Dennis Alcapone and Lee "Scratch" Perry, the latter of whom he found himself under the guidance of following his big break in 1974 with the release of his single 'Dub Organizer'. There's a reason this achieved serious playtime - though not necessarily on the radio - worldwide following its release. A key release you certainly won't want missing from your collection.

I'll Be Around (3:49)
I'll Be Around (dub vocal) (3:46)
Review: Otis Gayle and Robert Dubwise Brown come together for this superb new 7" on Vortex Japan. It's a glorious cover of an already glorious original tune. Their version of 'I'll Be Around' leaves the originals feel-good melodies in place but works them into a lover's rock rhythm with gentle but sunny percussion and a heartfelt re-sung vocal. It's buttery smooth and good for the soul. On the flip is a dub vocal version that is even more laid back and deep, with fleshy bottom ends and wiggling bass.

Roots Reality (5:35)
Roots Reality (version) (5:52)
Review: Jahlin was not only a talented singer and songwriter but was also someone who made music with a strong message. He got his education in Canada after moving there in 1975 following his younger days in amid and after booming a welder - which seems a popular first career choice for eventual reggae stars as Bob Marley took a similar path - he pursued his musical career. His 'Roots Reality' is as the title suggests a roots reggae song from the Roots Reality label in 1983. It has a positive vibe and the rather rare addition of a violin which is not so often heard in reggae tunes.

Moving Out
Cat: JAMWAX MAXI25. Rel: 13 Apr 23
Moving Out (7:58)
True Love (6:46)
Review: Johnny Powell's 'Moving Out' is a killer reggae classic, charting the 80s dubstar's staunch decision to move "way out, way out, way out" of Babylon, after much abuse by the figurative city of vice. Against a wicked riddim by an unknown production crew, we've got laboured horns, ghostly vocals and snake-rattles, all of which make this a certain addition to the ranks of the politically charged reggae and ska of the time. This reissue is backed with another track by Powell, 'Love Is The Answer', which balances out the 12" with a 'positive vibe' of true love.
