tapeslongCassette Store Day 2016 was a blast! We still have copies of our official releases!  

THE  TOASTERS “SKABOOM” TAPE  –  JUMP129TAPE

Originally released in 1987, this album is considered by many to be the birth of modern “third wave” ska in the USA. Remastered audio with “new” artwork that includes illustrations by legendary comic book artist Bob Fingerman.

KING STITT “COOL & COPASETIC SELECTOR SET” TAPE –  JUMPTAPE004

King Stitt was a Jamaican deejay pioneer who began with Clement Dodd’s Sir Coxsone’s Downbeat Sound System in 1956. He was crowned “king of the deejays” in 1963 during the heyday of ska, and at the birth of reggae he entered the studio and created some of the first deejay records including “Fire Corner” and “Herbman Shuffle”. This live performance was recorded in 2002 at the Legend of Ska concerts in Toronto, and features Stitt chatting over foundation ska selections with Ska Nick The Trojan at the controls.

REGGAE WORKERS OF THE WORLD “SELF TITLED” TAPE  – JUMPTAPE005

Old skool Reggae and Rhythm & Blues trio featuring Jesse Wagner of The Aggrolites, Vic Ruggiero of The Slackers, and Nico Leonard of Moon Invaders/Caroloregians. Twelve original tunes, all groovy 1970s sounds, recorded in Belgium at Pum Pum Hotel studios.

DANNY REBEL “BOOMBOX SESSIONS” TAPE  – JUMPTAPE001

Danny Rebel is an acoustic reggae genius from Canada who recorded this entire album live and direct into an old skool boombox. His voice is sweet as sugar, with clever guitar work and seasoned “boombox recording techniques” delivering a truly full sound. Includes a wonderful version of Dennis Brown’s “Lip’s Sweeter Than Wine”. For fans of Marley, Toots, and Chris Murray. Includes download link. Re-released for CSD2016

RUDE GUEST “LOST CHICAGO SKA 1982-1993” TAPE  – JUMPTAPE006

During the early 80’s a small handful of bands kept the 2-Tone ska flame alive – Chicago’s RUDE GUEST was one of them! They released 4 limited edition cassettes before the US third wave kicked into full gear, and this release compiles all 16 songs from these tapes. Songs songs range from happy-go-lucky uptempo 2-Tone ska with a strong sax lead (think Madness or Bad Manners) to progressive roots reggae with a rock guitar lead and brooding 80’s keyboard.
