Information

“...one of the hardest dub albums ever released” Reggae The Rough Guide

There's not a lot we can add to that brief description of this set which features the production talents of Jimmy Radway and the mixing skills of Errol Thompson. Dub music simply doesn't get any better than this.

The set has been totally remastered, resplendent in the original black and white cover artwork, with all the usual excellent Pressure Sounds graphics, photographs and extensive liner notes based around a recent reflective Jimmy Radway interview.
The Compact Disc features five bonus dub/instrumental tracks including ‘The Great Tommy McCook’ and dubs to Leroy Smart’s ‘Happiness Is My Desire’ and Joy Lindsay’s ‘This Child Of Mine’.

ahhhhhhh....

thank you so much for these heavy horn action dubs.
like it says in the liner notes, with a better distribution this would be enjoying classic status.

such a shame, but better late than never.

definitely one of the most important re-issues of the year.

vital

I have a Fe-Me Time LP with some of the vocal tracks and these dubs really do the original tunes justice. really enjoying it

A genuine lost classic

Detroitsteel, Jun 03, 2009
When an album is described as a lost classic, it usually because it wasn't the great in the first place. This doesn't apply to 'Dub I'. From 1st track to last this is a collection of tough riddim's, most of which haven't been versioned to death, given a proper going over in the echo chamber. Jimmy Radway obviously hasn't got the props he deserves, this is a timely reminder of what a great producer he was, and a heavy-weight slab of 70's dub in the roots tradition to boot. That great, great music like this can still be re-discovered decades after its release, and sound as fresh as it does is remarkable. A lost classic indeed.

BAM!

Outstanding. Believe the hype.

Deep, complex and addictive

I first heard a few tracks of this on Mark Lamarr's sadly missed reggae show. Since I bought it several months ago, I simply can't stop listening to it.

Every time you listen to it, something new comes out. Thank you for bringing this true classic back from the dead!

Dub I

I have been buying Reggae records for over 30 years now.......and quite simply this is one of the best Dub albums I have heard. A classic of the genre.
Errol Thompson is criminally under-rated as a Dub mixer/engineer. Thankyou Pressure Sounds !

Don't listen to this on your computer!

Chris Ward, May 21, 2012
I hesitated on buying this for a long time, as I listened to it several times on Spotify or here and I thought "this is rubbish - I can't hear anything". I then bought the "Keep the pressure down" album, and I still hesitated, and finally in a quiet week I bought Dub I, and when I finally played the cd on my hi-fi I couldn't believe what I'd missed.
My computer speakers couldn't reproduce half of the music, so that's why I couldn't hear anything. This music is very heavy, some of the tracks have the drums mixed low and the emphasis is on the crisp horns and beautiful bass. If you like G Brown, A Pablo, K Hudson etc you'll like this just as much. It's a good idea to also get "Keep the pressure down" while its still available.
You can buy this without hesitation - Ha ha!

  • The Nickel and Penny labels  - Eccentric SoulThe Nickel and Penny labels Eccentric Soul

    Nickel and Penny are twin sides of the same eccentric coin, and in the ’60s and ’70s that coin was being flipped by Chicago’s #1 Dusties DJ Richard Pegue. When he wasn’t busy as a mobile DJ, a jingles writer, or an enduring on-air personality at WVON, Pegue could be found in the studio working out the epic songs swirling around in his head.
