Originally released in 2008, the songs on Bought For A Dollar, Sold For A Dime are re-recordings of Little Axe's favorite songs. Featuring Doug Wimbish, Keith LeBlanc, and Bernard Fowler (long-standing The Rolling Stones background singer). 180 gram vinyl; Edition of 500.

For the first time available on vinyl, three albums by Little Axe originally released CD-only on Peter Gabriel's Realworld label. Little Axe, aka Skip McDonald, started his career in music back in the '70s as a member of the Sugarhill Gang backing band (already with longtime collaborators Doug Wimbish and Keith LeBlanc). Later on, the same musicians got involved with Adrian Sherwood and his much beloved progressive reggae/dub label On-U-Sounds. So far McDonald has released a total of eight albums of his own under the Little Axe moniker. Each of them recorded together with Adrian Sherwood, and each of them based around Little Axe's very own and contemporary version of the blues, combining blues with dub, Cajun and gospel sounds. For the first time, Echo Beach offer vinyl versions of the three albums Little Axe released on the Realworld label in the early 2000s.
