    Studio One Dub Volume 2

    Studio One Dub 2 is a second collection bringing together some of the finest dubs from the legendary Studio One Records, Kingston, Jamaica. Dub music was the creation of a generation of brilliant recording studio engineers in Jamaica. But although Clement Coxsone Dodd's Studio One is hailed as the greatest of the Jamaican recording labels, and although many talented engineers worked the board at Dodd's Brentford Road studio over the years (including Sylvan Morris, Syd Bucknor, Overton Scientist Brown and Dodd himself), Studio One was never typically known as a centre for dub. This is because for many fans the studio's commercial and stylistic heyday was in the 1960s, prior to the rise of dub as a distinct sub-genre of Jamaican music in the 1970s. By the 1970s, however, dub music was the rage in Jamaica's sound systems. Always the pioneer - and since Sylvan Morris had left the Studio One operation around 1972 - Coxsone supervised the dubs till leaving Jamaica at the end of the decade. This meant that for the most part, for example, the twelve Studio One dub albums released during the 1970s were mixed by Dodd himself, using the moniker Dub Specialist. Throughout the decade, the mixes became more sophisticated and atmospheric. Along with the first volume of Studio One Dub, the cuts here demonstrate that Studio One's contribution to the innovative musical form of dub was substantial, and go straight to the head of listeners who feel that the only centres for dub were studios such as King Tubby's, Lee Perry's Black Ark, Channel One, or Joe Gibbs's. The tracks on this compilation are taken from this period in the 1970s when dub was the cutting-edge of Jamaican music studio production. Most of them are the dub-version flip-sides of rare Jamaican 45s, and none have appeared on CD before. Michael E. Veal, author of Dub: Soundscapes and Shattered Songs in Jamaican Reggae (Wesleyan University Press, 2007).

    King Jammy Presents New Sounds Of Freedom

    King Jammy is one of reggae's most prolific and innovative producers, with New Sounds Of Freedom he shows himself strong once again.


    New Sounds of Freedom adds a new chapter to a story that now bridges three albums. In 1977 Black Uhuru recorded "Love Crisis" a 10
    song classic from the defining era in reggae. The rhythms were laid at Harry J's Recording studio with Sly & Robbie, Chinna Smith, Johnny
    Osbourne, Winston Wright and Gladstone Anderson among others. Then voiced and mixed at King Tubby's studio. The album was later
    remixed by Prince Jammy at King Tubby's and released in 1981 as Black Sounds of Freedom.


    The 1981 version serves as the inspiration and jump off point for these raw and vibrant new tracks featuring original vocal performances
    from Chronixx, Gentleman, Alborosie, Dre Island, Tony Rebel and others. The 10 song collection will be released on CD and vinyl LP.

    1. Peace Treaty Style - Alborosie
    2. Walls Of Babylon - Dre Island
    3. King Selassie Throne - Chronixx
    4. Dog Nyam Yuh Suppa - Tony Rebel
    5. Another Day In The Ghetto - Bounty Killer

    Mixed At The Legendary King Tubby's Studio in Kingston, Jamaica


    Dub Companion To The Vocal Album School Days By Flick Wilson


    One Of The Few Fully Authorized Scientist Releases Currently Available


    Totally killer, previously unreleased dub companion LP to Flick Wilson's School Days LP. Jah Life was no slacker when it came to mixing dubs, and sat in with Scientist at King Tubby's
    for the mixing of many of the classic Junjo/Radics/Scientist albums. But more importantly, they also mixed a ton load of dubs for Jah Life himself, many of which, like this
    album, remain unreleased...until now! Nine out of ten tracks from the Flick Wilson album are dubbed here, and one track from the Wayne Jarrett What's Wrong... album. Classic
    Scientist 1980 style mixing, nothing else like it, hard stuff. Cover features a fantastic previously unseen photo from Beth Lesser.

    Once Upon A Time At King Tubby's

    Never Before Released On Vinyl

    All of those things happened up at Tubby's - Bunny Lee

    'Once Upon A Time At King Tubby's' captures from start to finish the full story of the most well-known, and certainly the wittiest, of all the wars of words that the highly competitive Kingston recording scene ever produced. I Roy and Prince Jazzbo were the principal players aided and abetted along the way by an assorted bunch of onlookers and minor characters who all helped the drama to unfold. Bunny 'Striker' Lee was the catalyst that started this particular schism and the producer of all but one of the tracks.

    Ever the entrepreneur 'Striker' hit the musical jackpot once again as he goaded both artists into making records that went 'straight to the head'. What had begun as a joke grew into an entire series of seven-inch singles that set the Jamaican recording scene alight in the mid-seventies. All but one of the tracks on this set were voiced and mixed at King Tubby's Waterhouse studio; I Roy voiced 'Padlock' at Channel One because the competition a get so crabbit and this gave veteran vocalist Derrick Morgan an opportunity to enter the fray. Johnny Clarke, Dirty Harry and Prince Far I also make cameo appearances.

    Insults and 'head' games are nothing new in Jamaican music but this album is the first to ever compile all the tracks from one of the best examples ever of these feuds here remastered and complete with full sleeve notes featuring interviews with the main protagonists.

    Young Prayer

    Noah Lennox, a.k.a. Panda Bear, a.k.a. one-fourth of the founding members of Animal Collective, has had a far-from-quiet few years since the release of his fourth solo record, 2011's Tomboy. Since the breakout success of 2007's universally-adored Person Pitch, each new Panda Bear release is a highly anticipated event, and with a high-profile Daft Punk collaboration later, that's more the case than ever. But if the title of his fifth solo album as Panda Bear seems to portend certain doom, think again. Taking his inspiration from '70s dub duo albums like King Tubbys Meets Rockers Uptown and Augustus Pablo Meets Lee Perry & the Wailers Band, Panda Bear prefers to frame his latest work as less of a battle and more a collaboration. "I see it [as] more comicbooky, a little more lighthearted," he says. "Like Alien Vs. Predator." Young Prayer is the second full-length solo album by Panda Bear. It was recorded in Panda Bear's childhood home in 2002 by Deakin and further produced by the mysterious Animal Collective brothers known as Come Winter. It was originally released in 2004 on Paw Tracks as PAW2.

    Sound System International (Out Of Stock)

    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.

    Dub Will Change Your Mind (Out Of Stock)

    Bunny Lee produced dubs from King Tubby's studio are plentiful, with varying degrees of overlap, but here is a record of genuine rarities never compiled on album before. The cornerstone of the album consists of dub versions of 4 little-known Derrick Morgan tracks, four versions of Cornell Campbell songs, while the album concentrates heavily on the 1975 'flying cymbal' style of Carlton 'Santa' Davis.
    Seasoned dubheads will find themselves listening
    to music they never knew existed. Fourteen tracks (CD includes 3 bonus tracks). King Spinna is a new UK based label run by Blood & Fire founder Bob Harding.

    Plutonian Nights/Reflects Motion (Part One) (Out Of Stock)

    Plutonian Nights, the opening jam from the 1959 Afrofuturist classic album Nubians of Plutonia, is Sun Ra's quintessential, astro-majestic party joint. Among the top grooves in his immense catalog, Ra reveals his love for R&B is inseparable from his embrace of Jazz. (He once told bassist Richard Evans, We don't play Jazz, we play Dazz.) Pat Patrick's bari sax morphs into a Fender bass, while the swinging flow of John Gilmore & Co. gives new meaning to the notion of 'Blowing' (Out From Chicago).


    Remastered for top-down cruise control and better breathing. Reflects Motion is breakbeat heaven from the groundbreaking early-60s Choreographer's Workshop sessions, long buried in the deep space vaults. Marshall Allen's flute whispers betwixt Scoby Stroman's drums transmuted via Tommy "Bugs" Hunter's ghostly signature tape reverb. Down to the striking reminiscence of the vocal melody pattern, a direct predecessor (two decades prior) to King Tubby meets Augustus Pablo. Inna Space-Fire Dub Style.
