Black And Dekker - The Complete Stiff Recordings 1980 - 1982 - Desmond Dekker

Black And Dekker - The Complete Stiff Recordings 1980 - 1982

·A legend in Jamaican music, Desmond Dekker was the island’s first ‘outernational’ star, scoring huge hits in the late 60s with the likes of ‘007’, ‘It Mek’ and ‘Israelites’.

·This 2-CD set boasts all of Desmond’s recordings for Stiff between 1980 and 1982, including two albums plus stray B-sides and a brace of exclusive tracks from the rare ‘Hot City’ 12”. This was a successful period for Dekker, who enjoyed renewed popularity on the back of the 2 Tone movement.

·The majority of these recordings are currently unavailable on CD. In fact, the two albums have only been issued before as rare Japanese imports!

·Black And Dekker was self-produced with help from Vic Keary and Stiff boss Dave Robinson and engineered by the likes of Sid Bucknor (like Keary, a Trojan Records veteran). The album boasted reworkings of several of his classic 1960s singles. Also included here is ‘Juliet’, which was omitted from the UK/European edition.

The Ups And Downs
Stephen Duffy s Platinum selling debut album from 1985, featuring the International hit singles Kiss Me and Icing On The Cake This long overdue expanded edition features newly created artwork, a brand new introduction by Stephen, a vintage interview from 1985, plus 9 additional tracks, consisting of rare b-sides and 4 previously unreleased tracks and alternative mixes including the much sought after original version of Kiss Me .

Stephen was a founder member and lead singer of Duran Duran along with Nick Rhodes and John Taylor. He left before Simon Le Bon joined and the ensuing international superstardom of the Duranies. Stephen went on to form the band Tin Tin with Mulligan and Dik Davies of Fashion, Andy "Stoker" Growcott of Dexys Midnight Runners and producer Bob Lamb. They released the first version of Kiss Me through Sire Records, topping the U.S. club charts in 1982 with the band headlining gigs in New York with support from fellow label artist Madonna. Stephen went solo in 1983, releasing this, his debut album in 1985 which was the first of a string of successful solo albums using his trademark smooth vocals and catchy melodies. Stephen later shunned the world of pop to form the critically acclaimed folk group The Lilac Time and the Brit-Pop friendly Duffy.

And Did Those Feet
When Mick Mercer, one of the most respected music journalists with some 30 years in the trenches, cites The Dancing Did as his favourite English band of all time, you know we're talking about something a little special. Yet their epic output, has always been a little too subversive and clever for the mainstream and therefore has never before been available on CD. Cherry Red's re-release puts this travesty to rights, restoring their captivating sole long-player "And Did Those Feet" in full. As if that wasn't enough, the package comes complete with bonus material from their time with Stiff and Kamera Records, including all their a-sides, plus never before heard soundboard live recordings. The package also includes Mick's detailed liner notes, written in co-operation with the band, plus exclusive photographs and memorabilia. The Dancing Did's amalgam of the rural Gothic, replete with folk jigs and Hank Marvin-esque guitar, as well as Tim Harrison's unfailingly intricate and humorous lyrics, mark them out as one of the great undiscovered treasures of the early 80s post-punk milieu. Our Price: £9.95

The Wrong People
Furniture formed in Ealing, West London, 1979 by Jim Irvin, Tim Whelan and Hamilton Lee. They built up a strong following in and around London before bolstering their line up to include Sally Still and Maya Gilda. They released several independent singles through Survival Records before signing to Stiff Records in 1986. Best know for their 1986 single ‘Brilliant Mind' which has since featured on many compilations over the years. At the time of the ‘The Wrong People's' release Stiff Records went into liquidation with only having manufactured 30,000 vinyl copies and no CD. This vinyl has become a cult classic and very sought after over the years. The band eventually called it a day in 1992 with the various members going on to other projects. Jim Irvin fronted a keyboard/voice duo called ‘Because' before turning his hand to journalism, currently writing for Mojo. Tim and Hami formed Transglobal Underground who still record and tour today. This long overdue and debut CD release adds an additional nine bonus tracks. Pulling together b-sides and extended versions from their two singles off the album along with two unreleased demos from the bands own archive. Our Price: £9.95
