1 - TALISMAN - DON'T PLAY WITH FYAH - (CD) 
SUGAR SHACK


Most bands with a history that stretches back four decades are content to go through the motions, their creative peak somewhere in the past; not Talisman. Their new album includes some of the strongest material they've ever recorded, with seven brand new songs and the corresponding dub counter parts; this is their finest album to date.With such strong material we knew we had to pull out all the stops when it came to the final mixes and who better than legendary musician, producer, engineer and all round British reggae genius Dennis Bovell (Matumbi, Steel Pulse, Linton Kwesi Johnson, Aswad, Madness, Orange Juice, The Slits) who has taken the songs to the next level and given us the strongest British reggae album in years.The album kicks off with "Relijan", a roots anthem with lyrics that resonate with contemporary relevance whilst the music has the timeless feel of the best seventies roots. This track raises the game for Talisman and puts them on par with such British greats as Aswad, Steel Pulse and Misty in Roots at their best; without doubt destined to be seen as a classic of the genre. The pace and the lyrical intent doesn't let up: "Talkin' Revolution" is a brand new song yet imbued with the feel and vibes of early eighties Talisman."She Look like Reggae" is a charming piece of observational song writing that rewards repeated listening with hidden depths and use of a full horn section.It's hard to overstate Dennis Bovell's contribution to British music, reggae in particular and we can't think of anyone more qualified to mix these tracks. Dub mixes really are his forte and the seven dub versions here, deliver in every way; true dub re-imaginings and not mere afterthoughts

6 - TALISMAN - I-SURRECTION (OLDWAH DECONSTRUCTION) - (CD) 
SUGAR SHACK


When Talisman finished recording their latest album "I-Surrection", Sugar Shack gave the unmixed master recordings to Dave 'Oldwah' Sandford. Dave was the man given the job of mixing the unfinished tracks on the Capital Letters archive album "Reality". He describes his take on the music as "a piece of vinyl from 1978 taken out of a dusty sleeve", not slick and clean but having that authentic vibe. Influenced by the classic dub sounds of albums like "African Dub Chapter 3" and "King Tubby Meets the Rockers Uptown", Oldwah's dubs take you on a journey that absolutely sounds like it was recorded and mixed in downtown Kingston circa 1978.As a bonus, for this release some fresh tracks from the band are included, extra tracks from the "I-Surrection" sessions also given the Oldwah treatment making ten different songs plus two additional mixes, a round dozen dub shots for Talisman fans old and new.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Things Ah Get Tough (oldwah Dub) 02. Greetings And Salutations (oldwah Dub) 03. Walk With The Rastaman (dub) 04. Season For Freeman (oldwah Dub) 05. Hey Yout' (oldwah Dub) 06. Help Yourself (oldwah Dub) 07. You Can Cry If You Wanna (dub) 08. Old Wine (dub) 09. Money (dub) 10. Praise Jah (oldwah Dub) 11. Hey Yout' (alt Mix) 12. Season For Freeman (alt Dub)

7 - TALISMAN - NOTHING CHANGE (BEST OF TALISMAN 1977-2018) - (CD) 
SUGAR SHACK


Very few bands can celebrate forty years since their creation and far fewer can still perform and record at an equal or even higher level than in their early years. Talisman have always been something of an exception to the rule. Although they took something of a sabbatical during the late nineties and noughties, at their core this is the same Talisman that formed as Revelation Rockers back in 1977. They may have been forced into a name change along the way, but they never ever changed the messages in their music or the sheer energy and enjoyment of their live shows; their talents are undiminished.To celebrate the band's longevity and give fans old and new a career spanning perspective in a convenient package, here is "Nothing Change" (The Best of Talisman 1977-2018) a 17-track compilation that includes the band's earliest recordings under the guise of Revelation Rockers to tracks from last year's acclaimed "Don't Play with Fyah". Throughout changing times, technology and line ups the core of founding members Dehvan Othieno and Dennison Joseph give the music a remarkable continuity and demonstrate how some musicians improve with age.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Relijan 02. Wicked Dem 03. Takin' The Strain 04. Dole Age 05. Talkin' Revolution 06. She Look Like Reggae 07. Greetings And Salutations 08. Ah Wah You Seh 09. Free Speech 10. Run Come Girl 11. Culture (revelation Rockers) 12. Hey Yout' 13. Help Yourself 14. Jah Praises (revelation Rockers) 15. Lick And Run 16. Things Ah Get Tough 17. Wicked Dem (revelation Rockers)
