Greetings,
I'm here to add to the DB and to sell my collection.
For many years listening & collecting reggae, ska, rocksteady, On-U and so on - with a strong focus on sounds from the 60s and 70s (up to the very early 80s) - first reggae on wax bought in 1977, that was Dillinger's "CB 200"-album, followed by "Super Ape", "Cry Tuff Dub Encounter Ch. 1 - 4", "Message From The King", "Revolution Dub", "Police & Thieves", "Heart Of The Congo Man", "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 - 4" ... to name a few. An inspiring initiation.
Soon moved to the original 7" & 12" Discos in the early 80s. Reggae then was a rare thing over here and info was sparse - so I bought everything I could put my hands on ....

Database:
Starting with file cards I then built my own database during the early 90s (d-base), 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 years ago and now Discogs is the place to make some entries every now and then.

Selling Stuff:
To getting rid of stuff I'm here to sell my collection, which is 90% 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: PayPal or bank-transfer preferred.
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!

Lyricwise this is something like a re-working of Count Lasher And His Calypsonians* - Calypso Cha Cha Cha. The chords are close, too.

Very impressive collection with varying styles, a bit of lightweight stuff. My personal fav is "Come Back Liza" which sounds very High Life-like to my ears.
Some of the tunes collected here obviously taken from Various - Jamaican Party Time.
posted a comment on Wailing Soul* - Soul & Power . about 1 month ago
Definitely not a 1982 but a much later press - but even more irritating: The tracklist given - as well as the matrices - indicate this to be (simply) a mislabeled release of The Wailing Souls* - Wailing Souls with partly different mixes of some tunes. Interesting issue but ... See full review

Is this really Calypso Time RECORDS when the logo says "Music From The Caribbean - Calypso Time" and "Calypso Time Records" only appears at the bottom ... like a manufacturer or distributor?

This one, in spite of showing a big center hole, is a UK pressing.

IMHO the "Cry Tuff"- and "Cry Tuff Wisdom Man"-labels should be separated. First record on "Cry Tuff" released in 1975, the label underwent a change to "Cry Tuff Wisdom Man" around 1979.

One of the best 70s DeeJay sets IMHO, riddims are outstanding, all killer and no filler here. Mr. Beckford at his very peak.

It's usually credited to either Stranger & Patsy (what I suppose is wrong) or Joe White (which sounds pretty correct), I always thought it could be Owen & Leon Silvera.

One totally wicked Deejay-cut by Mr. Wade Brammer aka Trinity, see Trinity (4) - Gwan & Lef Me.
Has a killer dub-wize, too. Zukie made another great cut, Tapper Zukie - Natty Dread On The Mountain Top . Even Dillinger was around the corner and delivered one of his best-ever: Delinger* - Freshly.

A real shame Yabby U & King Tubbs do not get any credits here for riddim, production & mix, but this is cultural chatter Trinity's awesome toast over one of the heaviest from the 70s, Vivian Jackson & The Sons Of Jah - Jah Vengeance. Killer dubwize, too.

Unfortunately much underrated Deejay-piece to one of Delroy Wilson's finest from the late 70s: Delroy Wilson - Talk Too Much.
