what happened to GREENSLEEVES vinyl represses?

Postby ephteeay » Wed Jan 19, 2005 9:31 am

after the 6 scientist dub LPs (essential in everyones collection imo!!!)
i was expecting more of the same... same cover, same label, same music.. i cant imagine this not being successful for them!!
greesnsleeves have one of the best (or the best!) catalogues

if i was greensleeves id also press 12"s! or make a compilation of 12"s
double LP or something.. who wouldnt want that??!!

roots radic magic.

i was thinking the same ephteeay would love for them to repress some of their old 12"s i did contact them a while back to ask them but i never got a reply maybe if they had lots more requests it might make them consider reissuing them.

what I want to see is a compilation of their ranking dread tunes, 12"versions. I`m sure that would be a seller, as theres not much of him available and he is quite different than most of the DJs....and thats not usual, as to my ear lots of the dancehall DJs sould quite alike

there is certainly a demand for GREd releases, if you go on soulseeek and search for them you can get pretty much the whole back catalogue. only problem is they are mp3, have no sleeve, usually imperfections in the sound and you cannot hold them! Good for previewing tunes you want though.

I rang them up one time to ask whether they were intended to repress the Johhny Osbourne album Never Stop Fighting, but they said it is often had to find the original masters, stampers, cover art etc and it is a lot of work. However, as you point out they have one hell of a Roots Radical back catalogue of essential tunes, i'm sure they'll notice it soon.

id agree that putting out ltd press 12" reissues , say a bit like the channel one gold series etc would definatley work, or maybe having them packaged as a box set with say 3 12" in one package. get a reggae journalist to do some accompanying notes and it would be fab.
Gred 12" are often seen in second hand shops etc and can usually sell for about £5 to £10 so there is a demand.
Come on Greensleeves!!! we want a bit more than riddim albums!!!
