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!

  • Jimmy Riley  - Gunman of JAJimmy Riley Gunman of JA

    A previously unreleased version of Jimmy Rileys thoughtful Gunman of JA. As relevant now than when it was originally released according to Jimmy. Both sides come from dub plates that were re-mixed at King Tubbys. Tougher leaner and deeper than the original mixes. The A side is not on the new album ‘Live it to know it’. Essential roots music from Jimmy Riley backed by Sly and Robbie. Comes in a hand stamped sleeve.

  • Jimmy Riley - Everybody Needs MoneyJimmy RileyEverybody Needs Money

    Two cuts of ‘Everybody needs money’ on the A side. A sparse moody observation on social inequality ‘It's the talk of the town, no money going around’. Sound familiar? It came first time around on the ‘Full Moon’ label and has never been re-pressed. The B-side, which has 2 cuts of Reggae Music, also came on the Full Moon label. Engineered by Scientist and was probably recorded slightly later than the A side. Both the versions of Reggae Music are not included on the ‘Live it to know it’ album. Comes in a hand stamped sleeve.

  • Jimmy Riley  - Live It To Know ItJimmy Riley Live It To Know It

    Seventeen track set of Jimmy Riley self productions. Some real obscurities mixed with classic material. Jimmy started out with the Uniques as a harmony singer and then moved on to become a lead vocalist after Slim Smiths death. Jimmy worked with Jamaica's best producers as well as crafting an excellent body of work that were released on his own labels such Pee, Yes and Full Moon. This set focus's on his his self produced protest song between 1975 to 1985.

  • Michael Rose - African QueenMichael RoseAfrican Queen

    Michael Rose's distinctive tone gets on a re-working of Yabby's a King Pharoah's Plague rhythm. Nicely done by King Jammy and comes with a nice dub on the flipside. Excellent.

  • The Inturns  - Nothing is Impossible (extended mix)The Inturns Nothing is Impossible (extended mix)

    An excellent extended mix by Phil Pratt of The Inturns 'Nothing is Impossible'. First released on a Chanan Jah 12' in the mid nineteen seventies. The Inturns recorded an album and several singles for Phil Pratt before returning to the their original name The Viceroys. Extended mix of 'Detour' on the flipside. Comes in a hand stamped bag. Crisp.

  • Junior Brown - What a disasterJunior BrownWhat a disaster

    Three cuts of Junior Brown/ Phil Pratts 'What a disaster'. The rhythm was recorded in Jamaica by Sly and Robbie and was part of the Dial M for Murder lp. The Junior Brown vocal was voiced in the UK and released on The Mystic label. We have an extra mix added to the Pressure Sounds release by The Disciple. A killer release that comes in a hand stamped bag made out of re-cycled card.
