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 ?
cheers
