Sound System International (Discontinued) - Vinyl Record

by King Tubby & The Dynamites

0% Financing for 6 months

Product Code:
Pressure Sounds
Vinyl LP - Sealed
Originally released in a plain jacket, and rubber stamped with only the title and track listing, Sound System International was considered to be totally obscure amongst collectors until Pressure Sounds reissued it in 2009. This original set features ten thrilling King Tubby deconstructions of Dynamites rhythms produced by Clancy Eccles. Anyone interested in Tubby’s early mixing style need look no further as he takes on these straight forward reggae songs and turns them upside down to somewhere completely different.
1. Garrison
2. Red Moon
3. Dub Star
4. Kingston Dub Star
5. King Banga
6. Down Town
7. Uptown Shuffle Dub
8. King Tubby's City Dub
9. Joe
10. House Of Darkness

Vinyl records are able to capture the purest quality of recorded music in true form. This is possible because the initial recording is captured on an analog source (usually tape) for the ultimate in High Fidelity sound, it is then pressed onto virgin vinyl. Analog recordings capture the bottom end (or bass) while adding sweetness to the high end (or treble) better than any digital recording ever could. Analog systems are still commonly used before they are digitally transferred to CD. This means that the sound then is altered in the transfer process when CD's are produced. The word fidelity means accuracy and faithfulness. High Fidelity sound is faithful to the original sound made by the artist, capturing maximum accuracy of what was intended for the listener to hear. Vinyl records capture those sounds for the ultimate High Fidelity listening experience!

180/200 GRAM Vinyl LP

These vinyl records are produced with 180 or 200 grams of high definition premium grade virgin vinyl. This is a higher quality audiophile pressing than the typical vinyl record of 100-120 grams. These limited edition LP's are manufactured with the hi-fi enthusiast in mind. A 180 or 200 gram LP is sometimes also referred to as an audiophile pressing, there is a higher bass response and an even warmer High Fidelity sound. 180 or 200 grams LP's are typically manufactured in limited amounts and are considered collectibles, commanding a higher price.


Typically, a vinyl reissue is a repressing of an original LP, usually extracted from the recording's master-tapes. In some cases, reissues are remastered to lower surface noise and improve overall sonics. Reissues help preserve the music of an original recording, especially when original LPs become unavailable or can no longer be found. Reissues can be pressed on a variety of thickness from 150 gram to 200 gram and offer a great opportunity for records collectors to own many classic recordings.
