Brilliant jazz lyricism, in the style of Kenny Burrell, by the thirty-three-year-old, at an impromptu 1965 session in the Federal Studio, with pianist Leslie Butler, drummer Carl McLeod and bassist Stephen Lauz.

Instrumentals in ska, mento and other Caribbean styles recorded in 1966, at the threshold of rocksteady. The only one of his eight Federal albums to feature ska. Super-fine LP from Dub Store.

Fire! The Federal musical director walks it like he talks it. Blazing horns and jazzy brilliance all round.

Spiritual jazz exquisitely crosses rastafarian roots in this bongo-led gem expertly produced at Dynamic in 1970 by Sonia ‘I was one for drums’ Pottinger. Terrific opening salvo from a new reggae reissue label.

The best of Ern’s sixties LPs. A lovely bunch of rocksteady instrumentals, suited and booted for reissue by Dub Store in Tokyo.
