Boomkat Product Review:
Reissue of the dub royalty’s 1995 album for legendary Tamoki Wambesi Dove, including all 20 cuts from the 2013 CD edition
A masterclass in pure studio-as-instrument dub, ‘Psalm of the Time Dub’ sees King Tubby reshaping 1 classic 1977 album by The Royals, aka the long running band of Tamoki Wambesi Dove label owner Roy Anthony Cousins. It’s a supremely deep rooted, swirling and stepping session here presented in its fullest form with a frankly unmissable number in the dreamily dematerialised female vox of ‘Psalm 17’ recalling one of the label’s later stars, Brenda Ray. That’s not to discount the rest, which is 100% prime, pre-digital cuts, but that one just floored us!
