Information

An obscure dub album that briefly surfaced in the early eighties on the US imprint ‘Jammys Records’ which is now rightly regarded as a minor masterpiece of Jammy’s mixing style. Ten tracks on the vinyl release and two bonus tracks on the CD.

strictly dub tastic

this is really good, however i do believe i already have these dub tracks elsewhere by other artists, so these rhythms have actually been available for a little while like a couple of years or so or a little more, but not by prince jammy up until this. This is a solid album though the tracks i have are very similar but somehow prince jammy has enhanced them ever so slightly to be somewhat better than the ones i had previously.

all the tracks are suited in the order they are and go from one to the next very well my favourites are B.Q.E. dub, Interboro dub as well as the blinding opener Immigrant dub and they all got good bassy rhythms aswell as the light percussion. And the tempo starts off medium, builds to a higher tempo in the middle, then lowers again to a medium tempo by the end. heavy bass, yet light airy feel, dancey rhythm chill tunes is how i describe it. brilliant cd i recommend it big up pressure sounds !!!

Just took delivery of this CD, and i'm quite pleased with it! A nice set - fantastic quality, both on Jammy's part (which goes without saying!) and Pressure Sounds. A bit short in the length (JUST over 40 minutes), but that could be due to the fact that we are SO spoiled with this medium!
Solid, BOOMING and worth every second.

Recommended!

this is "old style dub" at it´s best. as mentioned before some of this dubs can be found elsewhere. but jammys style is allways a pleasure and it surely doesen´t hurt that he got the support from sly, robbie, gladstone and some other heroes of the golden dub age. love it.

  • 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.
