Ras Shiloh - Coming Home (VP Records)
It had been a while since we last heard from Ras Shiloh. He now returns with 'Coming Home', an album produced by Bobby Digital that sounds like a logical sequel to 'From Rasta To You'.
Pretcheldave - Chai's Ready (Same Same Productions)
Reggae and dub meets Asian vibes, that's how one could summarize this debut album by Pretcheldave, a singer of Portuguese descent living in Brussels.
Natural Black - Jah Guide (Greensleeves)
'Jah Guide' is already Natural Black's second album for the Greensleeves label in as many years, and where predecessor 'Far From Reality' sounded a bit corny at times, 'Jah Guide' rather resembles Black's debut album 'Spiritual Food'.
Junior Murvin - Inna De Yard (Makasound)
We already announced this umpteenth release in Makasound's Inna De Yard series and this set by Junior Murvin by no means disappoints.

For this second release in their Most Wanted series the Greensleeves label compiled the biggest hits of the king of the dancehall: Yellowman!
Lieutenant Foxy - Dub & Vocals In My Central Station (Soulbeats Records/Nocturne)
Bit of an unbalanced album, this 'Dub & Vocals In My Central Station'.

With only three extra tracks, this re-release of the legendary album by Clint Eastwood and General Saint is a more modest effort by the Greensleeves label.
Zilverzurf - West Eastern Impressions (Lola's World)
"Reggae, but not as we know it!", that's how one could summarize 'West Eastern Impressions'.
Wailing Souls - Most Wanted: Classic Cuts 1978 - 1984 (Greensleeves)
We will repeat it until you tire of reading it: "This year the Greensleeves label celebrates its thirtieth birthday!" and of course an anniversary like that calls for the necessary re-releases! As the first installment of a new series entitled 'Most Wanted', 'Classic Cuts 1978 - 1984' is a sort of 'Best Of' compilation of the work of Wailing Souls.
Various Artists - Rub-A-Dub Soldiers (Makasound)
At first glance this seems like an in-between release by the Makasound label, but for those willing to give it a bit more attention, this compilation offers some gems from the rub-a-dub era of the early nineteen eighties.
Jah Mason - Life Is Just A Journey (Nocturne)
To those who've listened to Anthony B's most recent effort 'Higher Meditation', 'Life Is Just A Journey' should sound quite familiar.

Apart from Campina Reggae there's still another band playing their own version of Dutch reggae: Gras¿as! And yet, the big difference between Campina Reggae and Gras¿as still lies in the language used.
