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.

  • 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.

    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.
