Record Store Day Black Friday 2017 Ska and Reggae Releases

There aren't many RSD Black Friday releases to temp the ska and reggae fan, but what is on offer is pretty enticing!

First up is the Disco Devil red vinyl 12" from Lee "Scratch" Perry and the Full Experience, featuring both the 12" and 7" mixes of the track (versions of Max Romeo's "Chase the Devil"--one of my absolute favorite songs of all time).

The other--and probably harder to track down--release is the double LP (plus bonus 7") Studio One compilation From the Vaults (Obscure Singles Compilation), which is being billed as a collection of 18 "lost" tracks from the late 1960s to the early 1980s by artists like Alton Ellis, Johnny Osbourne, the Gaylads, Roy Tomlinson, the Soulites, the Officials, Glen and Dave, and more.

Happy hunting (for the vinyl above) and Thanksgiving!
