I'm here to sell my collection.
For many years listening & collecting reggae, ska, rocksteady, On-U and so on, first reggae on wax bought in 1977, that was Dillinger's "CB 200"-album, followed by "Super Ape", "Cry Tuff Dub Encounter Ch. 1, 2 & 3", "Message From The King", "Police & Thieves", "Heart Of The Congo", "War In A Babylon", "Scratch On The Wire", "African Roots Acts 1 & 2", "Dance Hall Style", "Bubble Up", "Nature's Dub", "Creation Dub", "African Dub All-Mighty Chapters 1, 2, 3 & 4" ... to name a few. An inspiring initiation. Then moved to the original 7" & 12" Discos.

Starting with file cards I built my own database during the early 90s, collecting info from mail-order lists, fanzines, printed discographies, advertisements, other guys' collections and so on. The initial idea was just to get an overview of especially 7" records that might be interesting ... finally this grew up to 42k data sets - just ska, rocksteady, reggae and comprising of 12" Discos, 10" plates & the holy 7".
I stopped working on my DB some time ago and now Discogs is the place to make some entries every now and then.

To getting rid of stuff I started selling my collection, which is 95% Jamaican music - 60s, 70s, very few 80s and 90s.
Mostly on wax, a couple of CDs.

All wax I'm selling has been played so isn't mint but used, many items bought 2nd-hand, so when browsing my inventory you won't find a mint one - but at least some items are as close to mint as possible.
CDs are generally hardly played as they were normally used for ripping only (very few exceptions that will be noted in description).

I'm going to add soundclips (playing about 60 - 90 seconds) to all of the 7", 10" Plates & 12" Discos I'm selling. These soundclips always come from the actual record for sale and they are not enhanced or treated in any way - so what you hear is what you buy!

Orders: Dear Collectors, Soundgyals & Soundbwoys - I will be back to you asap, but please show some patience. This is not a bizz, just selling my collection.

Payments: If you don't want to or can't paypal - just ask, we'll surely find a solution.
PLEASE NOTE: Shipping costs are fixed and non-negotiable. Details? Please read my "Seller Terms / Shipping and Payment Terms".
PLEASE NOTE: Items worth +20 € and paid by PayPal MUST be send to your registered PayPal-Address only - due to PayPal-rules. NO alternatives, NO exceptions!

I Roy's side is a next cut to Yabby U-produced Tommy McCook - Death Trap, that appears here as the B-side - one more total killer that is on top five for some eternities. Some say it's a Black Ark mix - IMO this is quite likely although the flying cymbals are Bunny Lee ... See full review

I love "Romp In The Room" for its totally relaxed style & atmosphere, sounds like Mr. Earl Smith made his country-butions on lead guitar. Organ by either Mr. Collins or Mr. Wright. As good as Mr. McCook's "West Of Parade".

Musically fabulous and very interesting release when it comes to production and publishing, involving Mr. Dodd, Mr. Cole and Alty East. Ken & Norma's vocal saw Jamaican release on Coxsone: Ken* & Norma* - Give Me The Right.

Very interesting release with credits to Stranger Cole who recorded some fab tunes with Mr. Boothe in these years of vintage. The US-release of this vocal shows some more interesting cross-connections: Ken* & Norma* / Ken* - Give Me The Right / I Don't Want To See You Cry.

The Silvertones' tune to me is something like the essence of Studio One reggae. So deep, heartfelt, melodic - a real gem. And the dub-cut - as simple as it is with only a very few likkle gimmicks - just blows me away. Think this is a Pablove Black ... See full review

You're talking about research WingKongExchange? Just be so kind and present some result of yours.
This label-design was not used in the 70s and 80s. It's from the U.S. and from the 2000s (maybe very late 90s, wouldn't argue about that).

Factually this is a straight re-issue of Tapper Zukie - Man Ah Warrior from 1977. The 1973 original LP on Count Shelly didn't contain "Viego" and "A Message To Pork Eaters" but three tracks un-related to Tappa Zukie (one instrumental, two male vocals pieces).
