How to use the reserve function
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.

1. Click on the account icon to log into your account.
If you don't have an account, please click 'create account' to make one. If you had an account on the old RWDFWD site, please create a new one with the same email address used on the old site - this will ensure your previous orders are brought through to your new account.

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.
Another great compilation on the ever-on-point Honest Jon's label, this one came out some years ago, but we couldn't resist getting a handful for RwdFwd.
It's a great representation of what is perhaps the most upfront, no holds-barred dance music out there, undeniably energetic, constantly daring you not to move.
Served up in a colourful gatefold sleeve (Will Bankhead on design duties), and mastered to a very high standard (by Moritz Von Oswald, no less) this set of tracks will sit neatly in your collection as a testament to global music culture, and you may well wreck a party or two with these in your record bag.
For those not too clued up on the Carribean's hottest export and the fuel of Notting Hill Carnival, check the official words from HJ below:
"Soca evolved in the 1970s from traditional calypso, which was seen as an increasingly insular form and was beginning to decline in popularity. As Trinidadian musicians increasingly travelled to New York to record, the new up-tempo style that developed became known as soul calypso (hence soca). Using more sophisticated recording techniques and incorporating influences drawn from ‘70s American soul, disco and funk, it swiftly came to rival reggae as the most popular form of music in the Caribbean. Trinidad inevitably remained soca’s stronghold, but the freshness and dynamism of the new style soon attracted adherents from other islands such as Barbados, Antigua and Montserrat.
Lord Shorty’s 1974 hits Endless Vibrations and Soul Of Calypso brought soca to an international audience, while Arrow - not from Trinidad but Montserrat - had an even bigger international success with the 1983 global chart-topper Hot! Hot! Hot!. Such tracks were essentially good time party tunes. But soca has not entirely turned its back on the calypsonian tradition of political and social comment and Gypsy’s 1986 hit The Sinking Ship is credited with helping to remove the People’s National Movement from the Trinidadian government. Andre Tanker’s Food Fight is just one of several tracks here to pack a message.
By the 1990s, soca was expanding its horizons once again to take in influences from Jamaican ragga and dancehall and from hip-hop and house music. These new influences helped to create a harder-edged school of contemporary soca and gave birth to a new generation of young artists such as Bunji Garlin and Machel Montano.
The new soca sound is not a uniform movement, as you can hear from the sheer diversity of the music on offer here. It also takes in the Indian chutney soca of Massive Gosine’s Chrloo, for example. But the global transformation of the music since the early 1990s has both captured a younger generation that had given up on more traditional forms of calypso and soca and has created considerable generational friction with the calypsonian old guard. Yet there are also musical continuities which join modern soca and all its diverse influences to the days of calypso and the early soca pioneers.
Calypso legend Mighty Sparrow — who won his first Carnival Road March way back in 1956 — has endorsed the new sound and has pronounced himself happy to pass on the baton to the likes of Machel Montano. Maximus Dan’s Soca Train is a cutting-edge reworking of a 1982 hit by Winston ‘Gypsy’ Peters and represents a direct, conciliatory link to soca’s first golden age. On Love Fire, the new generation meets the old guard on Machel Montano’s remake of Black Stalin’s 1987 hit."
