The Manhattens - There's No Me Without You1973 1) There's No Me Without You
As some of you may be realizing there is now a PW needed.
this is to TRY to prevent link stealing , I really don't expect 100 out of 100 to always leave comments but I'm seeing that some albums have been snatched almost 300-400 times with maybe 20 comments , it does become quite discouraging, so lets see how this works , albums will be just as easy to get, if you are a frequent visitor of this blog

One of Bob Marley & the Wailers' finest collections, AFRICAN HERBSMAN belongs alongside CATCH A FIRE and NATTY DREAD as an essential Marley recording. There are three reasons why AFRICAN HERBSMAN is significant. For starters, it is a treasure trove of some of Marley's best songs. Though these tunes were written and recorded in the early 1970s, Marley would revisit them--in concert and in re-recordings--throughout his career. The celebratory "Lively Up Yourself," the winsome and wise "Small Axe," the swaying "Don't Rock the Boat," and the escapist dream "Kaya," are only a few of the gleaming gems here. More importantly, perhaps, AFRICAN HERBSMAN captures the Wailers at their peak as a band. With Bunny Livingston and Peter Tosh's high, sweet harmonies prominent throughout, and the Barrett brothers' impeccable rhythms, the Wailers are an unstoppable unit (and provide a focus lost on some of Marley's solo albums). But the most distinguishing quality of these sessions is Lee "Scratch" Perry's remarkable, unique production. Unlike the rock-oriented sound of the Chris Blackwell-produced CATCH A FIRE (released the same year), HERBSMAN has pure Jamaican roots--on top of the fine material and performances--making it one of the defining documents of reggae. 1973 1.

First issued by VeeJay in 1959, this Charly reissue of Jimmy Reed's "Found Love" features four bonus tracks, and some of Reed's best and most popular songs. It opens with a true classic, the inexplicably titled "Baby What You Want Me To Do", one of the very few 50s and 60s blues singles which managed to crack the pop charts.Inexplicably titled? Well, yeah, Jimmy Reed actually never once utters the line "Baby what you want me to do", and on one available recording he and his wife can be heard bickering with the studio engineer about the title.He actually sings: You got me runnin', got me hidin',Got me run, hide, hide, runAnyway you wanna let it rollYeah, yeah, yeahYou got me doin' what you want meBaby why you wanna let go? Anyway, "Big Boss Man" is also here, with backing vocals from Mary Lee ("Mama") Reed, and so is the primitive but groovy "Hush Hush", which features the great Eddie Taylor on lead guitar.Jimmy Reed does a fine rendition of soul singer Clarence Carter's "I Ain't Got You", and manages to sound genuinely menacing on "I'm Gonna Ruin You", and other highlights include the lively "The Sun Is Shining" (not the Elmore James-song), the title track, and the slightly spiritual-flavoured "Going To The River". Great blues.
