It takes months if an Auralux release show up in Frankfurt!
Actually I gave up finding some new release discussed on the BAF-board in my local record stores!
I wait about 2 weeks after it shows up in London, then I check the german distributors siie online, if it's listed there, I place an order in my local store and wait...
Except for the Soul Jazz stuff, that's on time in Germany and the Makasound releases I never find, it's the only way for me...
Just recently I remebered that I've never seen BAF's DEB dub in the shops, placed an order and received it 3 days later.
Did you ever spotted the Bitty McLean in Hamburg?

Even the Trojan stuff doesn't show up in WOM or Saturn.
Some weeks ago Gordon told me that my name is in the credits of the Trojan Rarieties Box. Boy I searched this release everywhere for weeks. And than I gave up, ordered it and got it last week. Gordon was right as usally :lol:
And there's some nice stuff on the box too :wink:

Be thankful for the stuff that does show up!

Here in North America we just don't see titles from labels like Auralux in stores. I've only ever seen a couple of titles each from the European labels like Makasound, Moll Selekta, Honest Jon's, Wackies etc. Pressure Sounds disappeared for about a year and a half from stores here. So unfortunately its Ernie B's for all those hard to find reissue labels :(

Doug,
I've found that PS are easily ordered through A&B. Sometimes when the sales assistant searches they tell you it is not available - just ask them to check the import files - they can get them all.
You mentioned SJ for under $20 - they are all $22+ in the A&B here. I'll have to ask them about that. I haven't seen any of the other labels mentioned in Edmonton. They don't even have a very full selection of the B&F back catalogue.
Got your e-mail - will reply soon - have a great Xmas if I don't get to it in time.

Pressure Sounds are turning up pretty reliably at A&B now Mark - if a bit tardy compared to the UK and Europe. Dubbing With the Royals for example only just turned up in these parts - never mind the Aquarius release. Soul Jazz were quite expensive when they first began their Studio One series of releases - around $26 each - and you used to only be able to find them at the flagship downtown stores. Now they are all over and the price is more in line with other reggae CD's at A&B, that is about $19 - $22. The small indie stores - if you have any in Edmonton that have a bit of "world music" - are sometimes more reliable than the big chains, who seem to periodically go through these distribution peaks and troughs the last few years.

yo,man, i grab up the only copy SATURN had hidden in their vaults.
(they even couldn't tell me why they had only 1 copy and they told me,
they had it for some weeks ???? from UK ???)

according to rough trade the title is available, but if shops don't order ....


oh, and i still bought 2 titles from burning spear for 10 euro each:

"HAIL H.I.M." and "DRY&HEAVY". (also SATURN)

a short review:

soundwise i think it's below par (dull). most cds fellow boarders sent to
me over the years sound better.

the tracks are ok, the dubs are nothing to write home about
(compared e.g. to kamikaze dub on trojan) and instead of
lacksley castell or echo minott they should have included better
singers or more versions.

good deliveries from Johnny Osbourne and Barry Brown.
most of the stuff is not too rare and was released on other
titles. and as said the sound is really not impressive.

maybe the labels should ask the board how to transfer vinyl to cd ?
