These are actually from as far back as lastweek, but the Barrington Levy is from todayand I was too lazy over the weekend to post:



Barrington Levy is a fucking monster album. Any pressing info would be more than appreciated - seems true early 80'spressing, Volcano label, "Made In Jamaica." Everyone hatts on Know, but his knowledge dropping on shit like this was peerless.Humble Gathering was a trade that took like 3 months to work out,with Re*d from In Yo*r Ear - ended up trading a metal 45 box filledwith indie & punk 45's at my record swap last week. Got the Toby Benfrom him, too, and although not a rare or sought after album, turnedout to be pretty good hippie folk-pop, mildly psychedelic at points,on the soul label Venture and with a band including Joe Sample, Wilton Felder,and Paul Humphries.I hope people don't consider that Black Heat a TFT, cause it's a burner.Both albums I have by them have a pretty unique and solid sound, andI think this one is even better than the first.Pepsi set has a James Brown jingle, which turned out to befairly tepid, only because the jingle, done with the same lyricsbut in different styles by different artists, is really awful.Still, some nice horn charts on it. I had high hopes for the Argentversion, but it turned out to be painfully bad.Ok, I admit - I started this thread just hoping G**d Records NYCwould floss the results of the Queens excavation today...Triplets away!

    fellow strutter haze 25 was telling me in_y*ur_e*r had the humble gathering priced at around $100...no? nice trade! re*d has two records stashed that i need in my life but he wants around 300 bills for one of them... 1619 bab!

    He wasn't really even looking for $$$ for it,
    it was unpriced stashed away behind the counter -
    although if I threw $100 at him he might have
    given it up - but I initially traded him an album
    I know he wanted and wanted to do the rest cash,
    but he really wanted to do it all-trade, which was cool with me.

    He told me the person he got it from told him it was
    a $200 record, and I had to explain to him that if I
    wanted to be patient, I could get it on the Bay for $50,
    but that I was willing to trade heavily for it to save
    myself the trouble. I think the 45's he got at my swap totalled
    out to around $50 with what I had them priced at, so I was
    happy.

    info would be more than appreciated - seems true early 80's
    pressing, Volcano label, "Made In Jamaica." Everyone hatts on K
    now, but his knowledge dropping on shit like this was peerless.

    Humble Gathering was a trade that took like 3 months to work out,
    with Re*d from In Yo*r Ear - ended up trading a metal 45 box filled
    with indie & punk 45's at my record swap last week. Got the Toby Ben

    out to be pretty good hippie folk-pop, mildly psychedelic at points,
    on the soul label Venture and with a band including Joe Sample, Wilton Felder,
    and Paul Humphries.

    I hope people don't consider that Black Heat a TFT, cause it's a burner.
    Both albums I have by them have a pretty unique and solid sound, and
    I think this one is even better than the first.

    Pepsi set has a James Brown jingle, which turned out to be
    fairly tepid, only because the jingle, done with the same lyrics
    but in different styles by different artists, is really awful.
    Still, some nice horn charts on it. I had high hopes for the Argent
    version, but it turned out to be painfully bad.

    I just coped that Barrington Levy last week, ORG JA Volcano as well.
    I think there was a UK version also. Serious Co-sign it is one of his
    best for sure. Barrington is one of my all-time favs.
    Now if I could only track down that Shaolin Temple joint...

    a certain bay area dealer had quantity (i'm talking 50 - 75 copies of this) at one point. which i believe were sold at $50 a pop.

    they may be all gone now as they're not on the website.

    what's up JUSTIN!!!!

  • wanna sell a Fela, paychex?

    I have this one and reallyreally like it:



    I'm always on the lookout for more Barrington Levy stuff.

    by the way, is it pronounced Lev-ee or Lee-vee or Lee-vi?

    And I don't think black heat is a TFT at all, I have the other album (black and red cover) and find it quite listenable.

    Poor Man Style is Killer!
    I also recommend:
    Robin Hood
    Englishman
    and Bounty Hunter.
    It's funny you asked about the pronunciation of his name
    I say Lev-ee, but I think maybe I used to pronounce it
    Lee-vee.
    Weird right?

  • SoulOnIceSoulOnIce 13,027 Posts
    I learned how to say it from Mos Def

    ...broader than Barrington Lee-Vee, Believe me...

    Another good bunch of finds this week.
    The Earl Zero 12" is wicked, nice tune on the Real Rock Rhythm.
    The Bob Andy 7" is a long time want, that came in from the UK
    this week. BEST TUNE EVAR!

  • its pretty stupid of you to say that his images is photoshopped, i looked at the picture you said was photoshopped, but i did??nt think it looked photoshopped at all. its fully possible that this guy got all this records, but i dont think he bought them all since monday.. you get me?

    I wouldn't say stupid.

    So, you are basically saying that this is another of the now infamous Paycheck's FAKE FINDS?

    I totally agree.

  • HA HA HA.

    JLR look what you have done. Sewn doubt in the minds of tender young strutters. Even Aleit sold me out. That's the last time I let you look at my new collections first, Aleit.

    You guys suck. I'm taking my toys and going home.



    Nope Fred, on my mother's good name those were all purchased yesterday.

    let's stop this before it gets out of hand:

    Dear lurkers, newbies, etc: this is just a JOKE. Jonny is a serious store owner/dealer, with excellent reputation in the record game. His finds are not FAKE.


  • YA BASTA. ACCOUNTABILITY NOW. STOP THE MADNESS.


  • aleitaleit 1,915 Posts
    ok so maybe the finds aren't fake, but all that shrinkwrap was added on photoshop. very clever, very very clever.

    This is not the real JLR, he has been abducted and someone else is using his account. The truth is out there.

  • jinx74jinx74 2,287 Posts
    nothing like j's records but i got for $1 each:

    tommie young - do you still feel on soul power
    nina simone - i put a spell on you on philips
    gloria lynne - a very gentle sound on mercury
    gloria scott - what am i gonna do on casablanca
    john gary williams - s/t on stax

    The real question is...


    what dead strutters collection is that?

  • JLRJLR 3,835 Posts
    These are dark times in the record game. Times in which everyone is suspect. That's why Jonny shines like a candle of hope, a reminder to us all that another record game is still posible. Let's fight the record darkness with light.

  • I WILL NEVER FAKE FINDS. THAT IS MY PROMISE TO YOU. THAT IS MY PROMISE TO THE PEOPLE. WALK WITH ME INTO A BETTER DAY, A DAY IN WHICH THERE ARE NO FAIRY TALES OF SHOPPING CARTS FILLED WITH PSYCH... A DAY IN WHICH SELLERS ARE FAIRLY COMPENSATED. A DAY IN WHICH PRICES RANGE FROM $4-10, NOT $0.165-$1. THERE IS NO WAY FORWARD BUT TO WALK TOGETHER. WALK WITH ME.
