Boomkat Product Review:
Originally issued around 1977, this dub album collects Wackies recordings originally made during Lloyd Barnes time in Jamaica - at the crucible of leading edge studios like Randys, Black Ark, Treasure Isle - and in NYC before the White Plains Road studio was established, where finally they were overdubbed and mixed, deepest dread dubwise riddims. Included are the rhythm tracks of the African Jamaicans' "Girl Of My Dreams" and Tyrone Evans' "Dread Like Me"; also versions of "Ballistic Affair" and The Righteous Flames' "I Wasn't Born To Be Lonely". KC White and the Lovejoys contribute the only vocal, on the hymnal repatriation roots theme of "Open the gates". The band is basically the Reckless Breed, with the funkdafied drumming of Jah Scotty - just off the Kingston plane - especially outstanding, on fatbacked funky joints like "High Times" and "Disco Reggae Rocker". As featured in the rare sleeve photograph on the back cover , Bullwackies, Jah Upton and Prince Douglas work the mixing desk. Another deadly, wicked piece of the Wackies‚ picture. Rougher yet, tougher yet, essential dub.
