We thought it would be fun to get some of these Grover Germany classics back in stock for the holiday season! RICO RODRIGUEZ sadly left us a few years ago, but his legeacy of big trombone anthems lives on with “GET UP YOUR FOOT”, twelve amazing ska & reggae tracks released in 2000 with his top notch band! This was one of his last studio albums as he became quite busy as a part of JOOLS HOLLAND’s band! WINSTON FRANCIS is a soul ska/reggae legend, his voice is MAGIC. A STUDIO ONE veteran we had the pleasure of booking here in Chicago in 2014. That same year “MR FIX IT” released a new album backed by RUDE RICH & THE HIGHNOTES full of cassics redone is true vintage style. Such a great set check it out:

Happy to get these back in stock! Over the past 3 years we have reissued four modern-era LPs from ska’s originators THE SKATALITES, and fans have been asking us to get these solo albums from DOREEN SHAFFER back in stock! ADORABLE was released in 1997 and sees her backed by DR RING DING and the SENIOR ALL STARS, 2009’s “Groovin” backed by Belgium’s MOON INVADERS.

In November 2014 Chicago and Los Angeles were lucky to have showcases with one of the sweetest soul voices in Jamaican music history, Studio One legend WINSTON “Mr Fix It” FRANCIS. The 60’s hitmaker was one of Coxson Dodd’s biggest singers, and his 1969 “Mr Fix It” LP featured the hit songs “Too Experienced”, “Same Old Song”, “Fools Fall In Love” plus the title track. His second album “California Dreaming” continued the tradition of soulful reggae covers, including “Yester Me Yester You” , “Groovy Situation”, “Always Something There To Remind Me” and the hit Mamas & The Papas tune that named the album. In between these albums WINSTON would release two tunes that would drive collectors crazy 45+ years later – “THE BREAK” under the moniker BOB MELODY, and “YOUR CHEATING HEART” – a duet with LLOYD ROBINSON. Both these original 7″ singles fetch INSANE amounts on eBay – yet strangely both tunes have never appeared on reissue. OUT OF PRINT, SORRY.
SOUL OF PUM PUM HOTEL WAX IS HERE! A must-have for all fans of the MOON INVADERS and CAROLOREGIANS!
