Information

On 'No Bones For The Dogs' we have focused on The Mighty Two's dub output and collected together some of the most outstanding tracks from the period. Many of these tracks have never been released on CD and have not been available on vinyl since they were originally pressed on Jamaican seven inch singles. Standout tracks such as 'Earthquake', 'Babylon Bridge' and 'Burning Version' display a stunning sonic depth and range due to Errol Thompson's engineering genius and Joe Gibbs early training as an electronics engineer.

With brilliant artwork and graphics and full colour CD booklet and double vinyl package this is another stunning Pressure Sounds package for your delight.

Really beautiful collection from Pressure Sounds. This is my first meeting with Joe Gibbs dubs and it was very striking. Best track is the title song with nice horn arrangement and also the cut of Culture song Im Not Ashamed. Higly recommended for all dub lovers. More music like this!

Absoloute killer album, heavyweight dubs and excellent production throughout.Featuring different versions of tracks on the African Dub series and singles from roots reggaes' best years. Informative sleeve notes make this another top ranking album from the mighty Pressure Sounds label. Killer !!!!!!

This issue shows there's hope for Humanity... on LP, too double wonder.

Superb Rhythms, echos and general dubbing it up in the Studio. No wasted tracks!

Worth the price just to have Earthquake - a kind of Dub Nocturne

The Mighty Two

Wicked collection of dubs from the mighty two, Joe Gibbs and Errol ET Thompson. Lathered in mind-bending effects and mixed up with a healthy dose of delay. The musicianship and production on this record is outstanding. Highlight: dreamy version of Tribal War. Ace!

  • Jah Joe  - Dreadlocks songJah Joe Dreadlocks song

    Deep mystical Wackie's production from Jah Joe (aka Joe Axumite) in chanting deejay mode, one of the best 45's on Aires

  • The Mighty Abidjans - Don't Change the SystemThe Mighty AbidjansDon't Change the System

    Second cut on the rhythm first used for "Untamed", much much of a straight mix employed here, with a pure drum & bass dub version

  • Elijah  - Selassi hiElijah Selassi hi

    The mysterious Elijah cut this mellow and heartfelt 2-part single for Sir Collins, then apparently disappeared from the recording scene. But the tune made quite a mark in New York, where it was released on the very rare Bronx-based WARICKA label, enough to have been covered a few years later by KC White (we also reissued his cut, still available, see here!) The tune is also remembered fondly as a New York sound system favorite in the 1970s by those active back then. It was also released on the Ackee label in the UK, memorable roots reggae for sure.

  • The Invaders - Story of LoveThe InvadersStory of Love

    Another Invaders 45, "Story of Love" backed with its deejay version, "Holy Mountain." Another tune only released on a blank label originally, and thus the identity of the artists has long been speculated, but the mastertape revealed the mysterious Invaders again! "Story of Love" is an excellent early '70s tune, with great harmonies and organ, the flipside "Holy Mountain" being a deejay version on the same rhythm, with the vocalist chatting thanks and praises in Amharic, roots indeed.

  • Delroy Wilson  - Give me your loveDelroy Wilson Give me your love

    The mighty Delroy Wilson, one of Jamaica's biggest artists. "Give Me Your Love" was released on a Delroy LP again on the WARICKA label, which was mostly sold as a blank label pre-release with no cover, although copies with labels and/or a silk-screened cover also exist. This is a phenomenal cut on the mournful and heavy 'Artibella' rhythm, with a killer organ sound that we just love. This tune is backed by a dub cut with horns and bongos, lifted from an extremely rare blank-label Sir Collins compilation LP.
