I think they are pretty good. Is that Enos McLeod label?

"very very strange mastering", someone comments on Discogs about the Amussu reissue of the Heptones' Money Money Money, https://www.discogs.com/The-Heptones-Mo ... se/9347612 . If you're after a particular release, you might wish to check Discogs for similar comments, https://www.discogs.com/label/765968-Amussu-Music .

For the record (pun intended), Amussu reissues are also available to download/preview on Bandcamp, https://amussumusic.bandcamp.com/ (the Heptones' tune is clearly dubbed from disc, but otherwise sounds OK despite the comment above). And yes, it's Enos Mcleod's label, although the tune is a Dennis Brown production.

JahVaults I have 3 Enos McLeod Various Artist compilations, two on CD , one on LP & as far as I can see only Judge's 'People' & Bobby's 'Channa Channa' & Enos's "Come Let Us Leave' have been released on his CD compilations before.

The three Enos Various Artist compilations that are very good.
Pressure Sounds - The Genius Of Enos CD,
Legendary Classics LP on the Orbit label & Telaviv also on Orbit & on CD.

There's also this but it looks like more modern stuff rather than 70's ..
https://www.discogs.com/Enos-McLeod-Ram ... se/4278752


Telaviv - Currently there are 13 copies for sale on Discogs starting at NZ$9.00
Genious Of Enos - 14 for sale starting at NZ$40
so not too hard to get :wink:
Legendary Classics is not on Discogs so a bit rare I guess?

Hope that clears it up for you?

i swear I have an enos mcleod compilation on bim shermans label, Century. But I don't see it in any of those discographies linked. Gotta dig it out or try to, to verify it if nothing else. if I remember right, it was rare at the time it was released.

any help on this jj?

Hi JB,

No mate I don't recall ever seeing one of his on Century?

It's not this one on the Goodies label by any chance?
https://www.discogs.com/Dennis-Brown-En ... se/7080182

Here's a link to the Legendery Classics LP anyway :)

that be the one mini, thanks for saving me the search. as soon as jj mentioned "goodies" it came back to me.

so I wonder why that isn't listed, maybe just incompleteness? I also notice it is a noteable release, at least so far as its contents don't seem to be repeated in any of the other lp/cds listed in the discography.

anyway its good to confirm the old memory isn't going completely out the window.

how about that alias list on the discogs page? Ends with "Genious".

what do you know about this "Reggae Bingy Book Of Jah" double LP set? The cover and track list look interesting.
