12/10/2017: Coming soon:

Coming soon from Deeper Knowledge Records (DKR)...



Anthony Creary - Land Call Africa / Solid Foundation Band - Africa Dub 7" (Classic) 
DKR-241
Total classic 1970's roots by legendary drummer (and sometimes vocalist!) Anthony "Benbow" Creary. 
Recorded at the Black Ark during some Junior Byles sessions which Benbow was drumming on, this self 
production by the musician and his band the Solid Foundation ended up being released thru Studio 1, 
as the band was also backing many Studio 1 sessions at the time. Finally re-released on single with 
brilliant dub, a classic slice of mystical '70s roots and one of Jamaica's finest interpolations of 
a classic tune.

Pablove Black & Solid Foundation Band - Across 110 Street / Over the Bridge 7" (Classic) 
DKR-243
Killer '70s roots instrumental interpolation spread over two sides. Pablove Black blows melodica 
while the Solid Foundation Band turns it out. An obscure single originally released via the Total 
Sounds distribution imprint in the mid '70s. If you love Augustus Pablo's '70s instrumentals or 
Pablove Black's records this is right in your wheelhouse.

Paul Freeman - Great Tribulation / Version 7" (Classic) 
DKR-242
Great one-away mid '70s roots produced by drummer and vocalist Anthony "Benbow" Creary. Originally 
released via the Micron distribution imprint back in the day. Not much is recalled about Paul Freeman,
 but in addition to this one he's got a handful of good singles on his own label. We count Paul chief 
among the many brilliant obscure roots artists who cut singles in the style's heyday.

Rock A Shacka Release Information

Black Thursday / Beautiful Brown Eyes - Don D Junior (Vin Gordon) / Earl Bros (Tramp) 7"
Vin Gordon, otherwise known as ‘Don Drummond Junior’ was the trombonist on over a thousand Studio 1 sessions, and the Skatalites’s ‘Black Sunday’ (a cover of Luis Bonfa ‘Samba De Orpheu’ ) is still one of his favourite tunes, and is a regular feature in his live sets with the Reel Rock band.
He recorded this early 70’s cut with the Soul Syndicate at Treasure Isle studio, and it was originally released on the famous Tramp label, with an uptempo love song from the mysterious Earl Bros on the B side.

Zion Youth Part 1 / Part 2 - Don D Junior (Vin Gordon) (Fe Me Time) 7"
Another collector’s prize, this dangerous trombone instrumental from legendary trombonist Vin Gordon was produced by Jimmy Radway for his Fe Me Time label.
The track was recorded at Byron Lee’s Dynamics Studio with a rhythm provided by an all  star line up of sessioneers which include Aston “Family Man’ Barrett on bass, Lloyd ‘Tin Leg’ Adams on drums , and Earl ‘Chinna’ Smith on guitar.

Words / Hot Tip –  Gatherers / Prince Django (Upsetter) 10"
A previously unreleased mix of an alternate take of the classic roots anthem from Lee Scratch Perry, complete with false starts and full vocals from Sangie Davis and friends…… essential!
The deejay version - Hot Tip - is also very different from the original release, with multiple false starts and an alternative mix under the vocals ….. and it’s longer too! 

Due for release in late October
