Looks like mostly a mass offload of older Island/Mango stuff, plus a few truly awful bargain basement style compilations (haven't looked at the tracklistings of them, but i bet they include the likes of Ace of Bass ;) ), but there are a few possibly interesting jewels among the muck... Mad Professor, the Jammy's and Taxi stuff...

Anyone heard and got opinions on those later Mango Burning Spear albums, or the Aswad or Steel Pulse?

Mek We Dweet - Burning Spear
Jah Kingdom - Burning Spear

These are from the late 80s - early 90s. Not essential (and with a rather 'mainstream' production), but Spear always keeps a minimum standard of quality in his releases and you could find some interesting moments in these ('Jah Kingdom' includes a cover of Grateful Dead's "Estimated Prophet" as a bonus track on the CD, which is a rather surprising choice for a cover)

Hulet - Aswad

This is from 1978 I think, not from their pop-reggae material. I remember that it was quite soul-influenced, but most of the songs didn't have many memorable 'hooks'. I remember that I didn't like it as much as their self-titled debut and put it away after a couple of listens. Must spin it again sometime, though.

Victims - Steel Pulse

Haven't heard this, but I would most probably avoid it unless it was really really cheap. If you have their first 4 LPs (especially "True Democracy") and their recent "African Holocaust" you have all their good stuff - if you want more you could get "Earth Crisis" (has some good tracks despite its aged synth-heavy mid-80s sound) and "Babylon The Victim" (just to have "Not King James Version").
