JOE GIBBS RECORD GLOBE

Dennis Brown / Prince Allah

Three Meals A Day / Naw Go A Them Burial

Two late seventies roots / dub tracks here collated for the impeccable Joe Gibbs Record Globe series.

Dennis Brown heads up side A with "Three Meals A Day". Recorded in 1979 it features energetic congas, a truly rootsical rhythm section and an empowered, riotous deliver from Brown. Produced by Joe Gibbs and engineered by Errol Thompson it's hard to find fault in this sufferers anthem. Like previous joints in the series the dub follows seamlessly from the main mix, playing right thru side A uninterrupted in a proper DJ mix stylee.

The B-side features Prince Allah's "Naw Go A Them Burial" - a more old school flavoured cut with rocksteady inflections. I have to admit, I'm struggling to work out the lyrical message in this one... summat about not going to the funeral...lucky there's a separate dub version that pushes that digi siren and punchy bass right to front of the mix saving you from pondering why indeed Prince Allah did not go to the funeral.

Limited quants as per... get dem skates on dreads!

Joe Gibbs & The Professionals

African Dub Almighty - Chapter Three

Another week and the third part of Joe Gibbs essential dub opus - "African Dub". Kicking off with the eponymous title track, and one of the heaviest, darkest and most well known dubs to date. The rest of the set is comparitively jubilant and cherry.

With one of the strongest instrumental line-ups of the set - Sly & Robbie, Bobby Ellis, 'Horsemouth', Eric Lindo and Tommy McCook all supplying the riddims, it's another firm pillar of dub music's foundation and sounds as clear and concise as it did back in 1978.

Joe Gibbs & The Professionals

African Dub - All Mighty

Reissue of this classic dub album from 1975. Joe Gibbs did five volumes of "African Dub" - with this, "All Mighty" kicking off the set. Other than Errol Thompson and Ruddy Thomas engineering, credits are quite thin on the ground, but The Professionals consisted of a huge range of musical talent - Ossie HIbbert, Robbie Shakespear, Leroy Wallace, Tommy McCook and many, many more! 

Often cited by many as their first introduction to dub, "African Dub" is a painfully pure and honest set - gentle bass undulations peppered with brass and the gentle sway of muted guitar picks. Four more volumes would proceed it but Joe Gibbs lays out his stall perfectly on this series debut.

Joe Gibbs & The Professionals

African Dub - Chapter Two

Reissue of this classic dub album from 1976. Joe Gibbs did five volumes of "African Dub". This is the second volume featuring George Fullwood, Santa Gits, Tony Chin, Dirty Harry, Tommy McCook Ellis and Horsemouth. 

It's as strong a set as the first - with one of the first incarnations of Alton Ellis' "I'm Still In Love With You" riddim dubbed out to the max on this instance. It saw the series start to gather momentum, and play a vital role in the broader popularization of the dub genre - beyond the denizens of the dancehalls in Kingston and London.
