Gunman

Greensleeves

Format_dot_vinylLP // £8.49

DUB / REGGAE

Cat. Number: 0601811002711

2015 vinyl reissue of this Greensleeves classic. One of the important aspects of this album is the fact that the riddims and vocals were used extensively on Scientists milestone 'Rids The World' album. This be the jackpot and by far the best Michael Prophet LP available. Check the righteous 'Love and Unity', and 'Gunman', the perfect combination of Prophet's vocal range and the studio juggernaut of Scientist, Junjo and the Roots Radics. Highly recommended.

Greensleeves

DUB / REGGAE

Cat. Number: 0054645522618

2015 Repress of this Greensleeves classic. Hailing from the late seventies through 1980 originally, this has a state of the art Blackbeard mix from Dennis Bovell, production of the Well Pack Band from Winston Edwards and stands as a convincing album - which goes some way to explain the advanced poularity entire dub sets went on to experience after punk’s early love affair with sufferer’s reggae. The vibes here are good, the titles great and while some of the themes may not be entirely dread, the playing is all high calibre and the one-drop dubs are very well crafted.

The Sound Systems of Jamaica were always the people’s radio station. Tunes were tried and tested in the lion’s den of the dance to see which songs rose to the top and became the most popular. This was the litmus test and the first step to a tracks commercial release to capitalise its hotness on the circuit. Then the Dub/Version hit big in Jamaica in the early to mid 70’s this was also the case and many times the version cut of a track would even prove more popular than its vocal counterpart.
