Interesting choice for the 100th release, looks to be related to the long deleted Spear Burning comp: https://www.discogs.com/I-Mo-Jah-Rocker ... se/4564282

From Martinique, apparently. Couple of tracks on Youtube:

Thanks for the correction - there's a (female) singer of the same name (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XqAU8QreHec ), hence my confusion.

CD will be double set, adding Words In Dub (which will also have a separate LP release).

Two very nice sets. Imojah started in JA and got their third member in the US. All of the rhythms (almost) are JA-recorded.

The Spear compilation is related in the sense that it featured some of the material recorded/produced by Phillip Fullwood together with Winston Rodney (the title track of the dub album has the vocal on the Burning Spear compilation). Phillip Fullwood is the driving force behind both these albums. I wrote the liner notes for these releases.

The Imojah and Words In Dub sets are now out (https://www.pressure.co.uk/store/PSCD10 ... ub-cd-pack - vinyl also available). Congratulations to Pressure Sounds on their 100th release, which they're celebrating with various goodies (see site for details).

They need to halve their postage costs to the USA for me to buy anything. A shame too, their releases are consistently top notch. Perhaps I can get them on Amazon for reasonable shipping but they generally do not get the silk screen covers

Try Juno records in the UK. Excellent service and reasonable shipping

yes man juno is my go-to place these days, forgot about them momentarily when I posted about amazon. But while their postage is amazingly reasonable, they still want UK prices for records. That doesn't stop me though, although if amazon has the records, usually for US prices, I generally finagle free shipping from them.
