A more recent gem is "Where There's Life by Luciano". Every track is great.

I know people have laughed at this in the past but it's a perfectly crafted LP both music and vocals.


yes, perfectly crafted - carpenter/chiseller-wise. good is good! don't know this album but will check it out...

It amazes me that Conquering Lion isn't in constant print. If you look at Ernie B's best selling LP's list of the past year, you will see that Congos "HOTC", Upsetters "Super Ape" and Abyssinians "Satta" sell constantly and consistently. Always Top 5. I'd bet Pressure Sounds could do a reissue and have it sell like hotcakes. Maybe put out some alternate limited editions of the various editions (ramadam, etc.)

Blood & Fire did the Jesus Dread compilation which is more or less the perfect reissue of that album and Chant Down Babylon.

Exactly. B&F did the definitive "HOTC" but now it's gone, and it's VP version remains Ernie's #1 LP. VP is reaping the benefits. B&F did the Jesus Dread comp but now it's gone with no vinyl replacement. I think Pressure Sounds could have top sellers if they did straight up reissues of Conquering Lion and Prophecy of Dub as single albums. Apparently they have a relationship with Mrs. Yabby. Just my thoughts, maybe I'm wrong. :D But I think they'd sell and would also help a new generation hear one of the greatest albums ever on vinyl.

If I had to choose one it would probably be this:

Guillaume, lots of great classics there but I thought you would have listed some more modern stuff given your recent posts?
