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.

  • Bunny Lee & Friends  - Tape RollingBunny Lee & Friends Tape Rolling

    In 1971, despite his run of hits, Bunny Lee was still having to support himself with freelance producing at Dynamic Sounds, but by 1974 he was fully independent and poised to dominate Jamaican music in the mid 70’s. The tracks on this compilation capture that moment of transition, when the smaller ghetto producers were taking over from the older musical establishment.
    Listening to Bunny’s unreleased master tapes, what bursts out of the speakers is the energy and excitement of the whole production process, from the studio chatter of the musicians to the sonic experiments at the mixing desk. These pioneering steps in deejaying and dub were the launch pad for remix culture and the core production techniques of today, a creative explosion that altered the shape of our popular culture.

    In the words of I Roy, “Striker Lee, him have the key!
