    “After deciding on the songs for their debut, the Silvertones decamped to King Tubby’s studio, where the material was voiced in a night-long marathon. The resulting album, Silver Bullets, showed the duality inherent in the group’s oeuvre in that it is half composed of cover tunes and half originals, a duality also inherent in much of Perry’s work.”

    What’s in the Box:
    •Remastered From The Original Analog Tapes
    •Vanilla Sky Color in Color Vinyl
    •12 x12 Custom Lyric Sheet

    More reggae in my collection is always a good thing.

    I'm invested in the RHH track this month, but I am looking forward to snagging this in my next available swap.

    Reggae and related is just not an area of music I have any experience with or know much about. Looking forward to having some knowledge dropped on me and spending some time with this! (even if it does also make me a tiny bit apprehensive...)

    Very happy with this but would love to hear more about how/why VMP settled on this as Essential.

    Agreed and it’s a solid album and everything but the covers kind of take away from the album’s flow imo. Their original songs are amazing though! Hopefully it sounds good

    Very excited for this album. Not super familiar with much reggae, so think I'll pick up this and the Perry ROTM finally this month.

    Man...they had access to the whole catalog, and chose an album that was released in 1973 and has never been reissued on vinyl... and it wasn't The Heptones' Book of Rules.

    It says in the email under “Fun Fact” that The Silvertones was Lee Perry’s House band... is that true?
