Oh yeah, and we've got some other new items for http://www.stubbornrecords.com {http://www.stubbornrecords.com} that you might like, too. Actually, you'll definitely like them. Check it out for yourself!!!

The Soul Merchants - ...If You Like Music CD {http://www.stubbornrecords.com/shop/customer/product.php?productid=24174&cat=&page=1} Connecticut has had one of the strongest Ska and Reggae scenes around for some years now, and the Soul Merchants have been a part of it for many years. Now they're getting way into the thick of things with this impressive new CD, recorded at Version City by King Django. In fact, we were so impressed with their soulful Reggae stylings that we decided to release the CD ourselves! The CD shows off their Soul, Reggae, Ska, Rocksteady and Dub chops, while staying true to a modern American songwriting sensibility. Their sound can give you vibes that vary from Van Morrison to The English Beat! King Django contributes 3 dubs and Dr. Ring Ding lends his chatting skills to a very hot track on this impressive 18 song CD! They're only available from Stubborn, so get them right here!

The Skatalites - In Orbit Vol. 1 (Live Double LP) (German Import) {http://www.stubbornrecords.com/shop/customer/product.php?productid=24179&cat=&page=1} This is a smokin' hot live set from the legendary Skatalites, recorded in 2005. The band's line-up for this record features a great mix of the original members like LLoyd Knibb and Lester Sterling with new prodigies like Kevin Batchelor. These are more expensive anywhere else you can find them, so grab one from us for less!

New York Ska-Jazz Ensemble - Low Blow CD {http://www.stubbornrecords.com/shop/customer/product.php?productid=24178&cat=&page=1} (German Import) What do you get when you mix an all-star group of NY's best Ska musicians with a set list that includes classic Coltrane and Otis Redding tunes? Well, listen, and find out! Vic Rice, Vic Ruggiero, Sledge, and many more put together an energetic Ska-Jazz powerhouse of a CD! A must-have!

Bob Marley - Interviews LP (Jamaican Import) {http://www.stubbornrecords.com/shop/customer/product.php?productid=24177&cat=&page=1} This rare Jamaican record is an interview with the man himself, Robert Nesta Marley, played over some live and studio recordings of classic Marley tunes. It's on his own Tuff Gong label, and is a truly moving, spiritual piece of vinyl to add to your collection.

V/A - Let Your Yeah Be Yeah CD (British Import) {http://www.stubbornrecords.com/shop/customer/product.php?productid=24175&cat=&page=1} This 14 track compilation features 100% required listening tunes for anyone who is a reggae fan, or who is getting into reggae now. It features all hits from 1967-1980 from the biggest names in Jamaica, including Dennis Brown, Max Romeo, Jimmy Cliff, Desmond Dekker, and many more!!! This CD is like Reggae 101, but it costs a lot less than a college class!
