Alien Dread - Overcharge (2015 vs.) - in stock & on Bandcamp

A heads-up for the remaining stock of the 2015 re-issue & re-master of the Alien Dread 'Overcharge' album. The album is potentially the strongest collection to date from UK's own Roots Reggae Rocker Alien Dread and features other artists like DannyG, Phillip Whittaker and Kendrick Andy.

We have around two dozen of the digipack version available at the moment, so get your copy while you can (images below):

The album is also available for digital download on Bandcamp, so follow the link here - other releases from Alien Dread on the ISR Records Ltd. website.

IRoy - The Godfather (12" vinyl & link to MP3 samples) ...

Re-issued last March (2016) and now available through Iron Sound Records. This is the classic 1978 album produced at Tubbys (JA) with restored artwork. The sound quality is as close as possible to the original master, although sourced from vinyl, so there is a little crackle here & there (unavoidable, as the original master is no longer available). If you buy through our website, you'll get the best value on-line.

Side A:
1. Come Wheel And Jig
2. The Godfather  
3. New York City 
4. Hold On Jah Children
5. This Is A Scorcher  

Side B:
1. African Daughter
2. Live Up Jahman
3. Bedwood In August Town     
4. Law And Order
5. Jack Of My Trade

(all track transfers: Phillip 'Gadd59' Whittaker)
