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!

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!

    Storming big band ska from Granville Williams with 'Wailin'. 'Old McDonald' is actually excellent as well.

    Two slices of Jamaican big band jazz. Glen Millers 'String of Pearls' on the A side. The Anton Karas composition on the flipside from the movie 'The Third Man'. Great stuff.

  • Eddie Perkins & Patsy - Take These Chain From My HeartEddie Perkins & PatsyTake These Chain From My Heart

    On the A side 'Take these chains from my heart' has more than a nod to the Hank Williams classic of the same name. Has a lovely harmonica half way through.
    'I Am Blue' on the flipside is pretty good.

  • Freddie McGregor - Bobby BabylonFreddie McGregorBobby Babylon

    Freddie McGregors classic Studio One set. Re-pressed in Jamaica at Studio One with the original stampers. Sleeve is also a re-print from the original so it has the characteristics of A Jamaican sleeve. Its new but looks slightly worn in places.

  • The Cables - What kind of worldThe CablesWhat kind of world

    The Cables led by Keble Drummond at their Studio One best. Great album. Recently repressed in Jamaica by Studio one. The sleeves have also been made in Jamaican so has some slight wear evident around the edges of the sleeve. Although it does say on the back sleeve that it was made in the UK!! Check the sound clips for sound quality before you buy. Overall its pretty good in terms of sound.
