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.

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

  • 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.
