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

KB, Aug 31, 2009
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!

  • 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.
