Scientist/Roy Cousins — Four Track 10' E.P.

Malky, Aug 24, 2014
What a great and unexpected release this is, a dub excursion by the sadly underrepresented mixing engineer Scientist. I am pleased to report that not only are they all new to me, but I am also unfamiliar with the original vocal tracks that these dubs version, though I am reliably informed are by Don Carlos, Horace Andy and Gold.

They are exactly as you'd imagine prime Scientist mixes to sound following, as they do, in the rich classical dub tradition of King Tubby and Jammy's. I have been playing all four tracks over and over, though all are equally strong if I had to pick a favourite I would probably choose the forth track - tomorrow it might the third.

It would be nice to think there are enough similar tracks to justify a full CD release of Scientist tracks - and possibly another featuring the vocal originals?

Malcom X and Marcus Mosiah Garvey is original from Don Carlos & Gold-Plantation. But what are the 2 tunes on sideB ? The last tune is Horace Andy, but know somebody the original ?

Toussaint L'Ouverture sounds like a version of Horace's 'Something On My Mind' from the 'Horace Andy - Showcase' lp on Vista produced by Tad Dawkins. A great album.

This is a killer dub 10 inch.

One side is two different dubs of the title track "Plantation" by Don Carlos.
There was a showcase album with that title issued on CSA Records, featuring Don Carlos & Gold.

The flip side has a dub of "Pretty Baby" by Gold from the same "Plantation" album.

It also has a dub of "Something's On My Mind" from Horace Andy's "Showcase" album released on Tad's (later re-issued by Vista Sounds).

Thanks Pressure Sounds for another fantastic release.

  • Time Unlimited  - ReactionTime Unlimited Reaction

    An understated Lee Perry production featuring a young Junior Delgado as the lead vocalist of Time Unlimited. Delgado worked with Perry on a lot of material and this lilting rhythm frames a laid back delivery. Nice.

  • The Flames  - ZionThe Flames Zion

    The Flames started life as a backing unit for Alton Ellis but recorded under a variety of names The Crashers, The Hurricanes, The Invaders. Winston Jarrett was usually in the mix as the one constant member. Difficult to say who takes the lead vocalist is on this Nyabingi infused number. Most likely its Danny Clarke.

  • Jimmy Riley/Lee Perry - Sons of NegusJimmy Riley/Lee PerrySons of Negus

    One of Jimmy Rileys best tunes with Lee Perry. An impassioned vocal that lays Jimmys observations on the state of ‘Rasta’ at the time. Jimmy acknowledged Perrys production skills when I asked him how was it at the Black Ark with Scratch, he smiled and said ‘Fun, Scratch was great to work with’ Perry joins in on the vocals on the flipside. Top notch.

    The Black Brothers ‘You’ve been saying things’ is a lovely rocksteady harmony workout produced around 1968 by Derrick Morgan. Never before repressed and comes with The Brothers ‘Everyday’ on the flipside. Derrick Morgan was most likely the lead singer on the Brothers track.
