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.

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

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.

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!
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!

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!
