TAURUS 7" 45 RPM
DKR-052 - JUNIOR MURVIN - MAKE IT AND SET IT 7"
Self-produced by Junior Murvin at King Tubby's in 1987, and released via Tubby's then-active Taurus imprint. Fans of digital reggae are well aware of the brilliant and unique digital riddims being cut at Tubby's in the late '80s by the likes of Asher, Peego, Fatman, Benbow, and others. But besides the immortal 'Tempo' riddim and its variations, there are monsters like 'Babylon', 'Inna De Ghetto', 'Grammy', and many more. And then there is this one, perhaps more singular and deadly than almost all of them, yet only lesser-known by virtue of its rarity. Junior Murvin's beautiful falsetto floats on top of a monstrous and mind-boggling one-away riddim that could only have come from Dromilly Avenue.

DKR-106 - FRANKIE PAUL - WORRIES IN THE DANCE 7"
Two legendary Channel 1 dub albums, unavailable for 30+ years. Originally released only in JA, in silkscreened jackets featuring the iconic Well Charge star logo. Each LP features a selection of evergreen Channel 1 rhythms recorded, mixed and dubbed to perfection at 29 Maxfield Avenue. These are crystal clear reissues cut straight from the original master tapes, and come again in hand-silkscreened jackets, each in two different colors, exactly as the originals.
"Worries in the Dance", in our estimation the best rhythm of the early '80s and perhaps the entire decade, nothing short of a masterpiece. This rhythm and this tune really represent the refinement and zenith of heaviness in reggae as achieved by Channel 1, also in our opinion still unequaled then or now. This is a reissue of the rare JA 45 pressing of this tune, which features vocal & dub mixes different to any of the more common LP cuts. As if the rhythm wasn't enough, this is one of FP's best vocal outings, and the lyrics provide a brilliant and vivid snapshot of the climate in the area of 29 Maxfield Avenue at the time.
DKR-099 - BARRY BROWN - LAND OF THE LIVING 7"
DKR-100 - BARRY BROWN - STONE OF THE ARRIVAL 7"
Two of the hardest and best Barry Brown tunes. From the early '80s, and self-produced, released, and distributed by the late Barry Brown and his wife Lisa, on their own Snowbird label. Both songs only ever issued in tiny quantity on 45 in JA, until now of course both very hard to find.
