Jamaica been getting a lot of love in my life the past few days, so I was pleased to wake up today after a long (and much needed) nap and find this gem.

NY’s Peter Gunn has just posted a dope mix of Reggae 12″ records that he’s been collecting. In his words:

did a mix of reggae 12″s from 1976 onwards…. (as far as i know there are none from previous to 76!)… been really digging on the dub styles you hear on 12″s, as opposed to albums or 7″s, it’s a totally different approach… there is this window from like 76-79 where you get real roots style, but in a 12″ format… two nice tracks on the Guiding Star riddim here…


Here’s the playlist:

Long Time I Don’t Smoke No Herb- Blue Boy
Write Me Your Resume- Keith Hudson
Mr. Bossman- Linval Thompson
Disco Devil- Lee Perry and the Full Experiences (repress!)
Jah Jah Star- I-Roy
Zambia Connection- Prince Tony All Stars
Soul and Devotion- Barbara Jones and Trinity
How Can I Leave- Jackie Paris
Never Stay Away- Winston Groovey
Check For You Once Girl- Edi Fitzroy
Dreadlocks Affair- Jah Woosh
Piece of The Action- Copie Copewell

Fire this up and mellow your harsh.
