To view our clearance items (also known as "blowout sale"), click the red BLOWOUT SALE button. You can re-sort the search results by clicking the CHANGE SORT button located at the beginning of the search result listing. We recommend sorting the results by "Sales Last 30 Days", which will give you an idea of which titles are selling well. Happy hunting!

BB King (and his guitar named Lucille) had a remarkable music career. His achievements include an active career spanning an amazing 67 years, 15,000+ live performances, 15 Grammys, inductions into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame and the Blues Hall of Fame, the Presidential Medal of Freedom and of course the moniker King of The Blues. Long live The King.

We have a wonderful selection of his hard-to-find releases, available at the lowest prices in the world.

You can choose between 2 display modes: REGGAE ONLY or ALL MUSIC. These 2 buttons are located just underneath the FORMAT search filter.

The purpose of this feature is to make it easier for "reggae only" customers to shop for reggae without having to look through any other music.

REGGAE ONLY = Only reggae music will be displayed, no matter what you search for.

ALL MUSIC = All items that we sell are displayed.

Another way to view reggae only is to simply enter "reggae" in the genre filter. By default, the search criteria remains after every search, so if you enter "reggae" in the genre filter then you can proceed with your normal searches and only reggae will appear until you change the genre filter. Of course, you can do this with any genre so if you only want to view jazz you can simply enter "jazz" in the genre filter.

During our transition from a reggae-only distributor to a one-stop for all music genres, our website has lacked some key search features. We are now working on making these features available as quickly as possible.

Here is what you can expect to see on our website within a few weeks:

1) Genre search filter

2) An optional "Reggae Only" filter (all searches would display reggae only, until you remove this filter selection)

3) New and Used items filter (you will be able to search just "new" items, or just "used" items, or both)

Here is some additional information about the genre search filter, and our search engine in general:

Other websites, if they have a genre search filter, generally divide their music genres into about 20 different "generic" categories (rock, soul, jazz, rap, etc.) As you might expect, our genre classifications will be much more in-depth. Let's look at the following item as an example:

Cramps, The - Blues Fix EP (item 185047)

A typical website would classify this item as "punk". Although this is an accurate description, the item would not be displayed on other websites if a user searched for "rock", "garage", "psychobilly" or "rock n roll". Our website, on the other hand, will list all relevant genres for items rather than just one. The Cramps will appear if you search for any of those relevant genres. Another benefit of our in-depth genre database is that you will be able to search by obscure genres, such Teen Idols, Thrash Metal, Ragtime, Halloween, Flamenco, etc. Our inventory is comprised of 600+ genres and is growing fast.

When the genre search filter is used in conjunction with other search filters the true power of our search engine is realized. Suppose you searched for "rock n roll", intending to find original rock n roll from the 50s. Our results will show The Cramps amongst the expected search results of rock n roll artists such as Jerry Lee Lewis and Elvis Presley. The "year" search filter can be used to filter out unintended results of "new" rock n roll by searching "rock n roll" for genre and "1951-1956" for year. You could go even further by filtering for "used items", or filter by price, or label, etc.

We thank you for your patience regarding the delay for these crucial new features. We're glad to say that they are on the way, along with some other great surprises!

A bit off-topic but we'd like to share with you a new food product that got our attention. Our good friend Dr. Dread (founder of RAS Records) has launched a quality line of jerk-flavored food items. We obtained a sample of the jerk potato chips and we believe they will take the world by storm! We don't stock them, however you can order from his website at www.doctordreadsjerk.com. We understand that jerk peanuts are coming soon. You will love these chips, just ask Bunny Wailer how good they are and he will tell you!

If you like the meditative deep roots sound of Midnite then don't miss the new CD by "Yehjah & Go A Chant" titled "Hurt". This is very much in the Midnite vein, featuring excellent musicianship and pure roots vocals. The singer/chanter "Yehjah" gives an inspired performance yet he never gets in the way of the music.

This is one of those CD's that you can have on for hours without realizing you just listened to it 4 times. Quality, upful music..refined yet still this is raw modern roots reggae at it's finest!

EBreggae welcomes Ace Records, England’s leading reissue label for soul, funk, jazz, rock n rock, 50s-60s, etc. We have stock on their entire vinyl catalog (200+ titles), and we will be rolling out their incredible CD catalog soon (2,000 titles).

Ace Records consists of the main label (Ace) plus several sub-labels such as Beat Goes Public, Big Beat, Kent Records, Westbound and others. We have all of the sub-labels in stock, however we did not input the name of the sub-label in our “label” field. Therefor, to find all of the labels simply type in “Ace Records” in the “label” search. We wanted to make the entire label group easy to find (by listing all of them as “Ace Records”) but the detraction is that there is no way to search for the sub-labels by themselves.

EBreggae has a legion of customers clamoring for new releases that have conscious lyrics, talented vocalists and quality musicianship. Look no further than DIVERSITY, the platinum-selling album from German reggae star GENTLEMAN (now released in the USA at a normal price!). This album appeals to a wide range of fans, covering many sub-genres of reggae music (roots, dancehall and even lovers rock). Highly recommended!
