Genre pick of the week Cover of Dubbing At King Tubby’s by Dennis Brown.

Dennis Brown

Dubbing At King Tubby’s

Dennis Brown has always been cited as Jamaica’s favourite singers. While Bob Marley set out to conquer the world, Dennis’s popularity back home on the island grew with every year. His most prolific period is said to be with producer Niney the Observer who led the singer down a more roots and culture avenue. He paired Dennis' vocals with some of his heaviest rhythms. Add to that the fact that these rhythms were mixed by the Dubmaster himself, King Tubby, and we are bound to get one of the best dub albums around. Here is where the Crown Prince of Reggae meets Niney the Observer at King Tubbys - there's no way this wouldn't be anything but a killer! Another top notch collectiojn from Jamaican Recordings.


Abyssinians

The Clinch Singles Collection - 7" Boxset

    Faithfully reproduced copies of the seven most collectable 7” singles from the Clinch Records catalogue.

    Jamaican trio, Abyssinians recorded some of the most beautiful works of the roots era, the finest of which saw issue on their iconic Clinch imprint. Despite the exceptional standard of this work and the desirability of original pressings of these releases, most have since only been available in limited numbers on poor quality pressings, depriving fans of the opportunity to hear these superb works on the format for which they were created.

    Finally, this unfortunate situation has been remedied with the release of this magnificent box set. Including an inlay providing a detailed breakdown on each of the featured tracks, this beautifully packaged deluxe collection comprises faithful reproductions of seven of their most sought-after Clinch singles, pressed on high quality vinyl and housed in specially created sleeves.
