Vinyl releases on pre order

I’ll be preordering this later. Although I already own 3 of the albums in this set…:face_with_peeking_eye:

Wayne Smith - Youthman Skanking, VP Records (2024)

Top draw reggae record reissued on VP.


Thanks for that, I may go for that set myself. I don’t have many Giulini records in my collection, except for the obligatory ‘Don Giovanni’ (EMI).

Interesting, does Peter Swain know about Wayne’s other activities at Cymbiosis?


Malcolm Jiyane Tree-O - True Story, New Soil Records (2024)

Following on from 2021’s brilliant album Umdali (if you haven’t heard it then do so) the vinyl issue is top class is this new release True Story I’ve only heard one track so far South African Jam and if that is anything to go by it should be as good as Umdali.

This Zimbabwean trombonist and multi instrumentalist is a rising star of African Jazz who was championed by Shabaka Hutchings early in his career, really looking forward to this one.

The Kenny Burrell Trio – A Night At The Vanguard, Verve by Request (2024)

Really tempted by this but might have to wait for pressing reviews, cracking record though.


Marion Rampal - Oizel, Autre Distribution (2024)

Beautiful album from French vocalist Marion Rampal.


Carla Morrison - DJENME LLORAR, Diggers Factory (2024)

Another beautiful vocal LP a reissue of Mexican vocalist Carla Morrison’s 2012 LP.

Should be quality.



Not my cup of tea but one for you Don Cherry fans.

I’m really annoyed because my RSD2019 copy of SoS was damaged!

Fantastic record (as is vol 2). I had the original many years ago.

Go nicely with my copy of Another Workout. :+1:t2:


Linval Thompson - Cultivator, Easy Star (2024)

Brand new 7" single from Linval Thompson.


Mother Earth - The People Tree, Acid Jazz (2024)

30th anniversary release of this excellent record remastered from the original analogue tapes but by who I’ve not been able to find out. Double album featuring the original plus a some previously unreleased, alternate tracks.

Never dipped in to any ‘Acid’ Jazz as far as I’m aware. Do you have any recommendations for me to investigate this Sub-Genre Bob?
