Dial M For Murder – In Dub Style

LP (Item 597394) Pressure Sounds (UK), 1979/1980 — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.90 18

Heavy dubs from a fairly unsung producer Phil Pratt – a set recorded at Channel One at the end of the 70s/start of the 80s –backed by the mighty rhythms of Sly & Robbie and other key figures in some of the greatest Jamaican music! This is some of the most adventurous dub we can think of from that time, yet it doesn't go too far off the experimental deep end – with acres of infectious echo and some tripped out atmosherics. Ron Brian is on guitar, Bobby Kalphat & Ansel Collins on keys, Tommy McCook & Herman Marquis on horns. Includes "Dial-M-For Murder", "Danger UBX", "Stinger", "Beware Of This Rass Dub", "Chase A Crooked Shadow", "Don't Watch My Size", "Walking Razor", "Wonder Woman Dub", "Bad Boy Dub" and "Jam Up".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Reggae In Jazz
Pressure Sounds (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy
Masterful reggae instrumentals from the great Tommy McCook! Reggae In Jazz does indeed have some jazz-steeped solos augmenting the vibe quite nicely, but it's perhaps not the full on reggae/jazz hybrid the title suggests – which is a good thing, actually! The rhythms are strongly rooted in ... LP, Vinyl record album
Unity Is Power
Elevation/Pressure Sounds (UK), 1979. New Copy (reissue)
One of the best records ever by Joe Higgs! Higgs is one of classic reggae's best songwriters and one of it's most distinctive voices – having written for, performed with or simply influenced some of the biggest names in the game – but his own great records didn't really crossover to ...

Reggae Archives (UK), 1985. New Copy (reissue)
Unreleased material from Capital Letters – one of the better British reggae acts of the 80s, heard here in a set of tracks that have lain in the studio for decades!

Soul Jazz (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A great set of purely classic level Studio One material – great stuff from the early 60s onward to around 1980 – and unfailingly amazing all the way through!

Honest Jons (UK), 2013. New Copy
Not sure if this record will stop the spread of global conflict, but it's more than groovy enough to make us drop what we're doing and trip out with the grooves! As with other Wareika projects, the sound here is plenty dubby – lots of influences from older Kingston and London records, but ... LP, Vinyl record album
One In A Million
Greensleeves (UK), 1984. New Copy (reissue)
A nice mid 80s record from deejay Half Pint – who's working here with producer Prince Jammy – with tight backing yb the Hi-Times Band. A really mid 80s dancehall highpoint for all involved!

Stranded
Greensleeves, 1984. New Copy (reissue)
A nice later effort from the legendary Wailing Souls – and their last album for Greensleeves, before rebooting a couple years later! '84's Stranded is a pretty strong record, with those achingly soulful voices front and center, and with a modern sound that holds up quite well! Sly Dunbar is ... LP, Vinyl record album
Stunts, Blunts, & Hip Hop
Mercury, 1992. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
Why is this album sooooo tough to find in an original pressing? Along with Showbiz and AG's first EP, and Lord Finesse's first couple releases, this album introduced the world to one of the longest running and most solid crews in hip hop, DITC. Classic and oft-imitated Diamond beats that laid the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mystic Voyage
Polydor, 1975. New Copy (reissue)
An archetypal album by Roy – and one that really shows him at the turning point! Gone are the trippier jazz funk moments of earlier albums – and in their place are some tight grooves and wonderfully spacey soul. Roy hits the dancefloor with one of his first uptempo funk numbers "B ... LP, Vinyl record album
