About this item

Out originally on Bullwackies' Aires offshoot, in a plain, stencilled sleeve, this is a thrilling early-mid-70s dub album based around three cuts of the dreader than dread "Free For All" rhythm. The title track was recorded at Randy's, and was originally put out on The Heptones' Hepic label, featuring Family Man Barrrett on keyboards, complete with deejay cut "Meditation Dub" which sounds like Charlie Ace. There are dubs of Little Roy's "Tribal War" and "Black Bird". Stranger Cole's "My Application", later re-voiced by The Heptones, turns up as "Dis Ya Dub"; and if things weren't smoke-filled enough, "Roots" is the rhythm of KC White's "All For Free". Melvin 'Munchie' Jackson and Lloyd Barnes production work for the album began in Jamaica and finished at the Sounds Unlimited studio in New York.
