Sugar Minott - Herbman Hustling (Black Roots)
Dennis Brown - So Long Rastafari (Harry J)
Jacob Miller & Ray I - Natty Christmas (Top Ranking) $2
Julie Spence - Julie Spence Arrives (Boss Records) $2
Jackie Opel - The Memorable Jackie Opel (WIRL) [anyone have a year for this release? Kind of looks like a reissue with the flimsier cardboard jacket]
Ojiji - The Shadow (Ultra)


Cornell Campbell - Chain Gang/Know Your Roots (Lord Koos)
Phyllis Dillon - Right Track/Tomato (High Note)
15, 16, 17 - Emotion (DEB)

Good day at the races all in all, also found some nice funk/soul & latin stuff very cheap.

yes ranking glasses newer get tired of wes brooks "lay down your arms" goes nice back to back with the jah woosh DJ version from "lick him with a dustbin" which sensibly retains some of the vocal underneath woosh's chanting.......

Nice finds there jj, apparently the reggae drought in NZ is ended...have that GG's and Lacksley 12" myself as well as the Prince Mohammed set.

Had a nice Thanksgiving weekend haul, picked up a large job lot of stuff, around 400 records total (mostly 7" & 12"), some of them are another portion of a former sound system collection I've been buying in chunks over some time (as described in previous pages in this thread). Mixed bag of stuff from the 70's to early 90's, plenty of late 80's dancehall type stuff which is not generally my favorite era but nice to pick up the rest. Way too many to list all, lots of tunes unfamiliar to me, some blanks and a few real obscurities & oddities but here are some highlights:

Some nice choices in there jj, I didn't think they would turn up in one place, that takes a few dollars searching online - enjoy!

I took a look through Doug's haul on Saturday and I'm trying to persuade him to part with a few - I mean, who can take in 400 records at once!! :D

Just picked up Roman Stewart's Running Away From Love LP which I have been after for a long time. A little steep at $80, but much less than what I usually see it going for.

@Ital Dokta: looks like you had a happy Thanksgiving indeed! :shock:
