Rosa Passos - Amorosa
Various - Gilles Peterson in Africa
Baby Huey - The Living Legend
Don Byron - Ivy Divey
Troubleman - Time out of Mind
Various - Dread meets the BBoys Uptown
Burnign Spear - Heartbeat vinyl of Creation rebel

What else should be on my radar?

The coming Tommy McCook on Trojan is actually the only CD I can think of that I'm going to get for sure.
