If you'd like to purchase items from our site but want to save money on shipping costs, you can use our reserve function to combine your orders over an unlimited period of time, and ship them together for one combined shipping price when you are ready.Just hit the 'reserve' button at the checkout page as your shipping option when you've finished making your order, and your order will automatically be held in reserve here until you are ready for us to ship everything to you.
You can keep as many orders in reserve with us via our site as you like, until you are ready to ship. Just send us an email when you are ready to ship your reserve orders, and we will get in touch with the combined shipping price, or ship for free if you have exceeded the minimum order amount for free shipping to your address.
Can the reserve function be used to get free shipping? Yes - If your combined order total is more than £50 within the UK, over £150 within the EU, or over £225 worldwide, we'll ship your order to you via courier service, for free.

EU Order info
Unfortunately, the UK is no longer part of the EU - This means that certain shipments sent to addresses there from us may be subject to tax and / or import duty - All orders sent from RWDWD are sent ‘DDU’ - That is, duty unpaid - any import tax and/or duty is the sole responsibility of the buyer.
If you would like to use our reserve function to group several orders into one large shipment, we can arrange for it to be sent tax and duty pre-paid so you don’t have to worry about it at a later date - Contact us for more information.
Completely essential business for anyone who considers themselves to be a roots-head, anyone tuned in to the power of post-slavery black music such as Jazz, Blues, Reggae, and the music that followed in its footsteps.
Here it is, reissued in a mighty beautiful three disc gatefold package, lovingly pressed to vinyl with full dynamics, and re-mastered via Japan's Dub Store Records - seriously, this one is precious.
An unimpeachable classic considered to be the pinnacle of Rastafarian inspired music
Master drummer Count Ossie's band, including the incomparable tenor saxophonist Cedric 'I'm' Brooks, recreate a Rasta grounation, or gathering, playing and chanting a sublime supplication, including Bible readings, in praise of Emperor Haile Selassie I
The Mystic Revelation of Rastafari plays a music that is immediately identifiable to their life-style. It is a music of controlled anger, due to the yoke of slavery which is now being broken from the backs of the musicians and the people of their environment. It is a music of laughter due to the inherent humour of the originators and the people of their environment. It is a music of love that is natural to the creators and the people of their environment.
"Through love man can see the light, the light is understanding, and understanding will make mankind move on for life" Brother Samuel Clayton
The Mystic Revelation of Rastafari is a fusion of the Mystics, led by Cedric "Im" Brooks and the Count Ossie Rastafarian Drummers. These two groups in the past were responsible for some of the most colourful and creative music that has emerged from this island of Jamaica. The horns and bass of the Mystics met and understood the drums of the Count Ossie drummers at the African Cultural Centre in the autumn of 1970. A few months later they were together and have remained so through these tough and trying days…
Utterly crucial in any collection.
Three disc gatefold, in beautiful sleeve art, with the original art, in a re-rub with sleeve notes and infos. Gold pieces, no doubt.
