- What's poppin', Stubborn Massive? We know we've taken a little long
with this announcement, but we're more than making up for it with the
new music we have for you this week!! We can't properly express how
excited we are about this new stuff at http://www.stubbornrecords.com
In fact, we can hardly believe what you're about to read, and we wrote it!
Johnny Osbourne - Let There Be Love 7" Single (Jamaican Import)http://www.stubbornrecords.com/shop/customer/product.php?productid=24214&cat=&page=1
This is the first ever Jamaican pressing of a Version City/Stubborn
Records label record!!! Johnny Osbourne, the legendary Jamaican
reggae singer, came to Version City and recorded this exclusive
original tune over a Version City Rockers riddim. Then we sent it to
Jamaica to get pressed up, and here is the result! These are not
available outside of Jamaica, so order yours here!!!
King Django - Asafa 7" Single (Jamaican Import)
This is a wicked instrumental tune from King Django and the Soul
Syndicate Band! The riddim is the classic Ethiopian King, originally
performed by the legendary Soul Syndicate Band in Jamaica. These
versions feature King Django's excellent trombone work, adding a
really cool melody to the riddim. It's put out by the Freedom Sounds
label in Jamaica, and is available elsewhere through us! Give it a
King Django and Kapachie - Them A War 7" Single (Jamaican Import)
This is a wicked new 7" featuring King Django and Jamaican
up-and-comer Kapachie voicing the classic roots Ethiopian King riddim
on the Freedom Sounds label. This tune is off the hook!!! The 7"
single has 2 different takes on the same riddim, one on each side. It
was pressed IN JAMAICA, so be prepared for a whole new King Django
Echo Bob - Don't Give It Up b/w King Django - Asafa No. 3 7" Single
This new Jamaican 7" features Jamaican artist Echo Bob doing a track
on the Ethiopian King riddim. The B side is King Django's trombone
instrumental, Asafa, but a different version from the two on his own
7" for that tune. Freedom Sounds continues to provide us with wicked
roots reggae, and now King Django is right in the mix! This was
impossible to find outside of Jamaica, until now!
The Slackers - Wasted Days LP
This is the vinyl version of the Slackers' masterpiece from 2000. If
you have the CD already, you'll notice the different feel the music
has on vinyl. This vinyl edition includes a cool dub and some tracks
not available on the CD, while omitting some CD tracks! Whether a DJ
or home listener, you'll hear why this LP is a must have once you
give it a spin. We're psyched to have this for you, but we don't have
many, so hurry and get yours!
Desorden Publico - The Ska Album CD
Desorden Publico have been playing an awesome fusion of Ska and Latin
Rock since 1985, and this CD is a great introduction to the band. It
features 15 of their most beloved tunes from the last 22 years.
