    Musicians include Aston 'Family Man' Barrett, Carlton Barrett, Robbie Shakespeare, Sly Dunbar, Ansel Collins, Ossie Hibbert, Earl 'Chinna' Smith, Tommy McCook, Cornell Campbell, Jackie Mittoo.

    Both The Aggravators and The Revolutionaries were influential in creating the distinctive sound of reggae music during its formative years, contributing their talents as studio bands behind some of the most significant recordings in the history of Jamaican music. 'Guerilla Dub' provides an illustration and insight into the close working relationships between the many producers, musicians and mixing engineers who created so many of Jamaica's marvellous musical masterpieces during its golden age and how interwoven and interconnected they were during this period of intense musical creativity.

        Magnificent 7

          The Magnificent 7 features the work of some of the heaviest deejays of the period, inspired by the tenets of Rastafarianism, extolling the virtues of living upright in those dread times

          Opening with Jah Walton who would go on to greater success as Joseph Cotton in the nineties, followed by Big Youth who had made some of his earliest records with Phil Pratt. I Roy, Jamaica's most literate and articulate deejay, steps forward with two big hits, 'Ital Dish' and 'Musical Air Raid' before two tracks from King Sighta, a young deejay who apparently lost an eye in a factory accident, and who released the eponymous 'King Sighter The One Eyed Giant' album on Terminal that year. Very little is known about Little Wicked, but Big Joe recorded extensively during the seventies for Studio One, Harry Mudie's Moodisc Records and many other top producers although this is his sole recording, released on Chanan Jah in London, for Phil Pratt. The set concludes with Jah Stitch, deejay for Tippertone and Black Harmony sound systems, with another big hit, 'Evilest Thing'.

          God Sent Dub - 2023 Reissue

            This album was issued in 1980 in a limited edition pressing of 300 copies on a blank label in a plain sleeve with no credits. It has never been re-pressed since then and has become a seriously in-demand collectors' item with copies changing hands for between ?100 and ?200... Now available on Vinyl LP and CD with bonus tracks. Dub mixed at: TMC (Tooting Music Centre) Recording Studio, 118 Mitcham Road, Tooting, London by Chris Lane. We probably did it in all in about two hours and ten minutes, despite not having a lot of time, or perhaps precisely because of not having a lot of time, the resulting album, 'God Sent Dub' proved to be a masterclass in dub mixing aimed directly at the roots market, it went back to the roots of dub and echoed the stark style of some of the very first dub albums from the mid-seventies.

                      Revolutionaries

                      Burning Dub

                        Reissue of 1979 album remastered on CD or on 180 gram vinyl with full colour insert. Crack Channel One studio band the Revolutionaries line-up featured Robbie Shakespeare (bass), Sly Dunbar (drums), Duggy (lead guitar), Ranchie (rhythm guitar), Don D. Junior and Tommy McCook (horns), Ansel Collins (organ), Skully (percussion) and Glabby Anderson (piano). 

                        Recorded at Channel One Studios, Kingston, Jamaica and produced by Junior English, 'Burning Dub' is another killer roots dub session from the late 70s. 

                        The Morwells formed in 1973 comprising Eric "Bingy Bunny" Lamont and Maurice "Blacka" Wellington, childhood friends from Kingston's Trenchtown area. The band expanded to a trio in 1974 with the addition of Louis Davis, formerly of The Versatiles alongside Junior Byles. David was a talented arranger and also taught Lamont to play guitar. Wellington began working as a studio engineer and producer for Joe Gibbs in 1976, working on the early recordings by Culture, while Lamont joined The Revolutionaries as rhythm guitarist, although they continued to work as The Morwells. Their new connections gave them access to much of Jamaica's musical talent of the era, and in 1977 they were joined by bassist Errol 'Flabba' Holt. Recorded in 1977 'Crab Race' also features the likes Sly & Robbie, Franklyn Bubbler Waul, Tarzan and Sticky. Quality vocal set.

                        Rock-A-Dub

                          Originally released on the Jamaica Sound label in 1978, and now reissued by the newly the revitalised Burning Sounds imprint, 'Rock-A-Dub' is a collection of dubs from Winston 'Niney' Holness and backed by the Observer All Stars, aka the Soul Syndicate band. Actually I'm surmising all this as information, even from the all-knowing Google is sketchy to say the least. A previous (and only other) Page One LP from 1976 was written, arranged and produced by Niney, so I'm guessing Page One is a pseudonym of the mighty reggae producer. Anyway, at the end of the day all that matters is the music, and this LP features 10 cracking dubs.
