Cool Reggae & Dub 1975-1985

This morning, for some reason, I decided to go early to the local market. There's a very friendly guy selling records and to my suprise he had a whole bunch of interesting stuff today. Normally you would't find any Joe Gibbs maxis for 1 euro but today I got lucky and managed to get two! And lots more reggae maxis from 1975-1985: sweet voices, cool dubs and splendid dj versions. I made a little mix of some of the newly acquired grooves, but beware, these are the extended versions!
