Shortly after the release of Delroy Wilson’s “Dub Plate Style” and Tommy McCook’s “Pleasure Dub”, the good folks over at Pressure Sounds bring us another essential dub album and a wonderfull vinyl single.
The first one is a fifteen track cd (or a ten track album) with ten early King Tubby dubs from Clancy Eccles productions that are as rare as they come. This is truly a very obscure album, that has only recently been discovered. Sound System International showcases King Tubby’s early mixing style, reminiscent of his best work with people like Glen Brown. Tubby takes these straight forward reggae songs, turns them upside down and on to somewhere completely different. Killer dubs !!!
The 10 track vinyl version is the original album repressed as was. The cd version has extra King Stitt and the Dynamites tunes.
The second gem is a vinyl single. Jah Wobble gives us two new versions of the classic “Get Carter” movie theme. A thunderous heavyweight dub by one of the best bass players around. Turn it up and play out loud.
You can check out some streaming tracks from this album on the Pressure Sounds website.
