*Lee Perry - Holiness Righteousness* 

Secret Records are releasing the sought after Lee Perry Record Store Day special on CD with five added bonus tracks! 

Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, aka the Upsetter, is responsible for some of the most startling and adventurous contributions to the direction and development of reggae music as a producer, arranger and writer. His role in shaping the history of Jamaican music in particular and recorded music in general is immensely vast. For decades Lee Perry was the driving force behind the most important movements in reggae and since 1980 reissues of his previously released and unreleased material have assured his status in modern day music.

Previously released on 180 g vinyl for Record Store Day 2015, ‘Holiness Righteousness’ is now also available on CD, as well as digital download on iTunes worldwide!

*The Selecter - Get On The Train To Skaville*

CD and DVD doublepack of The Selecter’s 2002 gig at London’s Dingwalls. http://bit.ly/1IqaakY

The Selecter formed in 1979 alongside bands like The Specials and Madness and spearheaded the 2 Tone Movement.The band is fronted by lead vocalist Pauline Black and the band enjoyed great chart success with hit single “The Selecter” which was a flip side to the 2 Tone single with The Specials track “Gangsters”.
Classic tracks “On The Radio”, “Three Minute Hero” and “Missing Words” followed as well as the much acclaimed debut LP “Too Much Pressure” which all appeared on the classic 2 Tone label.

In the summer of 1980 the band parted company with 2 Tone and signed to Chrysalis Records and released some singles as well as the second studio LP “Celebrate The Bullet” in 1981.1982 saw the band split as Pauline Black pursued her other interests of Theatre and the TV world, but in 1991 the band reformed with live shows and in 1992 they collaborated with the legendary Prince Buster on his single “Madness”.

Further studio albums have followed and here for your pleasure is a live show recorded at the world famous London Camden Dingwalls on 24th February 2002.

Enjoy the show and dance ya way to Skaville!

Today we are releasing The Animals last studio album, the comeback album ‘Ark’, on 180 g vinyl: http://bit.ly/1eXGmAI

With their gritty, bluesy sound and Eric Burdon’s deep, powerful voice, The Animals took the world by storm when they released their epic transatlantic No. 1 hit, ‘The House Of The Rising sun’.

As a consequence they spent most of their time on the road which meant there was little time for recording, and only released three albums during their heyday. After the first incarnation of the band split up in the mid-60s, followed by several line-up changes and solo projects, the band re-united to record the 1977 aptly named album ‘Before We Were So Rudely Interrupted’( http://bit.ly/1yVdiRb )

This album stems from the second and last reunion effort from the five original Animals from the group's first incarnation: Eric Burdon (vocals), Alan Price (keys), Hilton Valentine (guitar), Chas Chandler (bass) and John Steel (drums). Ark was released in 1983 on Castle Records and was followed by a concert tour resulting in the live album ‘Greatest Hits Live’.

With vocals as powerful and vicious as ever, strong backing vocals and even stronger melodies, this album brings you all the rawness you would expect from the Animals while at the same time presenting a more mature, artfully produced sound.

Enjoy ‘Ark’ as a loud and raw look at the end of the golden era of British R’n’B!

*Various Artists - Trojan Beatles Reggae Volume 2 - The Blue Album*

Secret Records releases a compilation LP of late 60s to early 70s Trojan Beatles covers featuring John Holt, Marcia Griffiths, The Heptones and more.

Available now from our website: http://bit.ly/1F4d87S
And on iTunes worldwide!

Here at Secret Records, we love our classic Jamaican hits. Following on from our chronologically presented compilations such as ‘Looking Back - The Jamaican Chart Hits of 1958 & 1959’, ‘Oh! Carolina - Jamaican Hits 1961’, ‘Easy Snapping - The Jamaican Chart Hits of 1960’ and ‘Trojan Beatles Reggae: The Red Album’, here is ‘The Blue Album’, a compilation of the best of the Trojan Beatles reggae covers.Striding like musical colossi over the 20th century, the Beatles took the sound of Liverpool and exported it to a global audience. But surely the island of Jamaica was an exception? After all, weren’t Jamaican musicians of the Sixties and Seventies influenced more by the sound of young America?
Far from it, the island's musicians and producers have always been adept at spotting a good tune and, let's face it, the lads from Liverpool wrote some great songs. The late 1960s to 1970’s saw various Reggae artists under Trojan’s aegis enter the recording studio to put down their take on some of the classics from the Fab Four. And here we have a selection of cuts from the heavy hitters of the time, a fantastic mixture of Jamaican and UK Trojan recordings.

All tracks on this 180 g vinyl LP are original recordings from the Trojan vaults, so sit back, turn it up loud and enjoy!

Available now: http://bit.ly/1F4d87S

Side 1
1. Eleanor Rigby – B.B. Seaton
2. Yesterday – Jackie Edwards
3. My Love – Ken Boothe
4. Happy Christmas War Is Over – John Holt

*Michael Chapman - Deal Gone Down*

Deluxe extended version of the 1974 album from Michael Chapman featuring 6 bonus tracks and sleeve notes: http://bit.ly/1EzQTqa

Leeds-born Michael Chapman – alongside Caledonian contemporaries, Bert Jansch and Al Stewart – emerged in the mid-1960s with his uniquely English take on folk-blues. The era of the folk-singer-songwriter-as-pop-star was kicked off Stateside by Bob Dylan and Tom Paxton, and cloning soon followed in Britain in the shape of Donovan and Cat Stevens. But what musicians such as Chapman and Jansch then brought to the folkies’ party was guitar virtuosity.

Whereas Jansch first learned from Scottish traditional folk musicians such as Hamish Imlach when he took up guitar, Michael was perhaps even more of a maverick. First playing pubs in Hull and Leeds, the musical style he carved out for himself drew from American influences as wide-ranging as Charles Mingus and John Fahey. Add to this Chapman’s very North of England sense of humour and view on life, and you have… the artist Michael Chapman.

In fact, he was an art and photography lecturer in Bolton before deciding to give up the day job. This happened after a summer vacation spent in Cornwall where he made equally good money as a working musician. The word ‘troubadour’ perfectly describes Michael’s lifestyle in the four decades since then: a world-class guitarist who has spent big chunks of his life out on the road drawing on ordinary life in order to create extraordinary music.

Chapman has played all kinds of venues throughout his career depending on the project in hand. He alternated between playing solo and being backed by a band – sometimes featuring Hull-born Mick Ronson and, like here, Steeleye Span’s Rick Kemp.

By his own (gleeful) admission, Michael did his fair share of rock’n’roll living during the 1970s. The 1980s saw him going out as a duo, Savage Amusement, with Rick Kemp, and then in 1987, he released the innovative ‘Heartbreak’ album featuring a 38-minute long track. He remained prolific throughout the 1990s, experimenting with sampling and sequencers in order to create musical atmospheres that capture his wry and gritty picture of life. Which is further proof that, having travelled the world in search of inspiration, Michael Chapman remains consummately the English folk-blues man.

This album echoes back to Chapman’s first EMI album ‘Rainmaker’ and features Nigel Pegrum and Rick Kemp of Steeleye Span fame, and Maddy Prior and Bridget St. John on backing vocals. Highlights include the brilliant and bluesy ‘The Banjo Song’, the laidback autobiographical number ‘Journeyman’, the glorious guitar work on ‘Party Pieces’ and the often revisited ‘Theme From The Movie Of The Same Name’.

You'll find it here: http://bit.ly/1EzQTqa
