Wicked New Tunes from Stubborn Records!!!
- What's poppin', Stubborn Massive? You're probably just getting over
your stomach ache from eating all of the Halloween candy you horded
away from the little Trick-or-Treaters. Now you're looking to dance
off those couple of extra sugary pounds, right? We've got just the
thing for you! We just added these titles to
http://www.stubbornrecords.com, and we think they're tastier and
more colorful than a bag of Skittles!
Don Drummond - Greatest Hits LP (Jamaican Import)
Don Drummond was one of the most famous and world-reknowned
trombone players of the 1960's. He was one of the main creative
forces behind so many of the Skatalites' tunes we've come to know
and love over the years. This collection is a great representation of
some of his best tunes from the legendary Treasure Isle label! Don't
overlook this one, we don't have many!
Clarendonians - Rudie Bam-Bam b/w Be Bop Boy 7" Single (Jamaican
This record is one of the biggest Rude Boy tunes ever, and just an
all-around gorgeous piece of Ska from one of the most talented singng
combos in Jamaica. It's pure Jamaican Ska, coming from a very soulful
place. These guys were teenagers when they recorded their Studio One
Ska sides, but their voices and the message they conveyed was wise
beyond their years. These are rare, so get one here!
Hepcat - Out of Nowhere CD (Remastered with Bonus Tracks)
Hepcat needs no introduction to anyone who's been into Ska over the
last 18 years or so. They've been one of the most popular
Traditional-style Ska and Reggae bands on the scene forever, and when
you hear their tunes, you know why. This is their first studio album
remastered, and includes bonus tracks from their very first single.
This CD is absolutely killer, and features the original Hepcat
line-up, including Dave Hillyard of The Slackers on tenor sax!
Rolando Random & The Young Soul Rebels - Hidden Pleasures CD (German Import)
This is one of the coolest CD's we've heard around these parts
recently! It's from an amazing German band that plays a cool
Garage-influenced style of traditional Ska and Reggae. They pull it
off as well as anyone we've heard in recent years. The songwriting is
really good, the music sounds great, and the vibe is unique and really
fun to listen to.
Spitfire - Thrills and Kills CD (German Import)
Well, this CD marks the fall of the Iron Curtain for Stubborn Records,
as I believe this is the first Russian Ska band whose CD we've gotten
for the site. It's a really unique 15 song CD, as it goes from really
cool guitar-driven rock with horns, to up-beat punk-influenced Ska, to
pop-punk, to chilled-out, cool reggae, then BACK again! But none of it
sounds out of place. It flows really well, and is super catchy! Dig it!
EARLY DANCEHALL REGGAE:
Yellowman and Fathead - Live at Ace's: Feeding in the Dancehall CD
Ever wonder what a real Jamaican Sound System show sounds like? Well,
here's your chance to hear one from 1982, featuring one of the biggest
early Dancehall stars EVER! Yellowman was, at the time this CD was
made, more popular in Jamaican than Bob Marley! This CD shows
his true talent, chatting lyrics off the top of his head over the biggest
rub-a-dub dancehall riddims of the time. This is a must-have for any real
King Tubbys Meets Larry Marshall - I Admire You in Dub CD (British
Larry Marshall was an awesome singer and songwriter. He started out in
the very early days of Ska and Reggae, singing tunes for Studio 1, Top
Deck, and Prince Buster's labels. He then went on to record some of
the very first reggae tunes ever, including the seminal Nanny Goat.
This CD is the Dub version of his album I Admire You. It was made
with the best musicians in Jamaica, like Sly Dunbar, Lloyd Parks, the
Wailers Band, and more. It was recently unearthed, and is a dub mix of
the entire album, done at King Tubby's. It's pure Tubby's Dub, done
